I absolutely loved photographing Thomas and Kandice’s wedding at her mother’s house in Upcountry Maui. It was pouring rain before the ceremony but everyone remained calm and it ended up clearing for the wedding and turning out to be the most beautiful afternoon. Kandice has been a great friend of mine since middle school so it was really special for me to capture her special day. I teared up a few times during the day as I could see how much love these two have for one another and for their daughter. Congratulations to this very lovely family! I am so happy for you and excited to see your future together.

An elegant wedding, with a tranquil Pacific Ocean backdrop, was a natural choice for Jonathan and Krystal, who reside in the ocean town of Huntington Beach, California. Maui was also a natural choice for the couple, as Jonathan made his wedding proposal on one knee on a Maui beach, as part of a weeklong celebration of Krystal’s 30th birthday. The couple wanted a small intimate wedding and reception for their closest friends and families, so a Maui destination wedding was a “no-brainer” in Krystal’s words. The oceanfront setting of Olowalu Plantation offered a spectacular sunset. The meticulous preparations for the destination wedding were coordinated by Makena Weddings, with flowers by Dellables, hair and make-up by MeiLi, maid of honor gown by Maui clothing designer Show Me Your Mumu, and delectable dinner by Maui Catering Services. Overall, the joyous occasion was quite beautiful and romantic.
