One day, my friend Abby and I decided to e-mail photographers...in Hawaii..and see if we could second shoot a wedding. One photographer I really admired, Chrissy, replied and said that I would be able too, as well as another gifted photographer named Kricia. Everything fell into place, my mom found cheap tickets, my Aunt lives near Honolulu, and before I knew it I had booked a flight to Hawaii. Shut up. I felt like Cinderella, with a camera.
I have been so excited to share this first wedding with you because it has a very special place in my heart. I got to witness my dream play before my eyes, and get this: I always used to say that I wanted my first couple I took pictures of to be Asian. I am a little partial I suppose, being half Japanese but honestly I adore Asian couples. I think they are the most cutest, sweetest ever! And guess what, I got to take pictures of a lovely Asian couple.... in Hawaii!
So, now for the photos! I am so excited to share these all with you! I don't know where to begin and I am pretty much exploding with happiness right now.
Meet the lovely bride, Anne. She looked so lovely and was simply glowing!
I loved how simplistic the flowers were, and they looked so beautiful and fresh.
The beautiful ceremony area overlooked a rock pool and fountain.
The sweet Grandma. Before the ceremony, while the bride was getting ready, she sat in her wheelchair and looked on with such happiness and peace, it was the sweetest thing ever! :)
And then the moment came for the bride to go down the aisle. It was so touching and Anne cried a little.
