Today, and everyday... We think and pray for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms that we have always known in our lifetime. Today and everyday.... We think about the families who have suffered, and how today is not a happy day for them. Today and everyday... We remember that freedom isn't free. Please take a moment to remember, and be thankful today. #rememberthem #knowthedifference
Any words that I could type to describe the love between Stephanie and Paul would really not do them justice! Not only are they both gorgeous, but the way they look at each other is so romantic! I would notice the way Paul looked at Stephanie as she was putting on her finishing touches, and he just admired her! Stephanie not only makes sure he looks good in terms of his clothing choice (she picked out his outfit!), but the way she makes him laugh was hilarious! Together, this power couple is just truly unstoppable! Special thanks to the amazing team that made this session happen last night!

And now you know.. Nobody's ever loved anybody as must as I love you. I can not even begin to describe how amazing yesterday's wedding shoot at @hiltonhawaiianvilliage was! Stephanie and Paul have been married for a year now, but wanted to recreate their wedding day and get the type of images that they dreamed of having when they got married! #hiltonhawaiianvillage So together, with a dream team of vendors, we made that happen! And the results...magical!!! @mermaidsirenity Florals and decor: @vidachicevents Hair and Makeup: @jirehartistry Videographer: @sweetrainmedia **BONUS Points if you comment and tell me what movie that quote is from?!?**
I really wish I could tell you that these stunning @badgleymischka wedding shoes were the most beautiful thing about my wedding shoot yesterday! I wish I could! But they were only a small part of the gorgeousness that happened yesterday when some of the most amazing creatives came together to do a shoot for an amazing couple! Stay tuned for some amazing beauty!
Aloha Friday!! Another week has flown by!!! Today is the last day of school for my kiddos and I of course had to take their pictures! So amazing how much they have grown this school year! I'm so proud of them as well! Between getting above average report cards all year, moving to Hawaii, starting school and doing homework in a hotel room, moving into out place, and receiving Student of the Quarter this week, I couldn't be happier!! Now it's time for summer break!!
OH MY GOSH THE PICTURES! Crying over how amazing they are! I absolutely LOVE when I get messages from my clients like this when they receive their gallery! It lets me know that I did my job. I evoked emotions and I told a story through their gallery and they see that! The crying part?!? Well, that's just a plus! Never a goal! Kelli, I am so happy you loved your gallery!!!
Found this Pikake bush with my daughter Jasmine! For those that don't know, Pikake means Jasmine in Hawaiian! I remember this fragrant bush as we had one in our back yard growing up in Waianae, and in the morning with the morning dew, it would fill the air with the most heavenly scent! Between that gorgeous smell and Princess Jasmine, that was the inspiration behind Jasmine's name! Every time I see a Pikake candle or something like that, I have to purchase it! Does your name or child's name have a special meaning to you?!? Comment below and let me know!! Just FYI, Vanessa means butterflies and my Dad named me after Vanessa Williams @vanessawilliamsofficial because she was Miss America and according to my Dad, the most beautiful woman in the world!
Thank you so much Paradise Cove and Ashley for the gorgeous tour of this beautiful venue! These grounds are amazing, and it made me even more excited that I am shooting a wedding here next month!!! @paradisecoveluau
