Poipu Kauai Wedding – Peg + Paul

Poipu Beach, Kauai Wedding – Peg + Paul

Peg and Paul’s Hawaii destination wedding brought their children and families together to share in celebrating the joy of their relationship. Poipu Beach is alive with sunbathers, surfers, explorers.  It is alive with the surf, the wind and the sun.  It is alive with the lasting memories of the couples married on its sands.

My task is to show in photographs just how these elements and families intersect on Peg and Paul’s wedding day.  The pictures will stir memories and remind us all of the hopes we embody in our wedding vows and exchange of rings.

Remembering where we come from makes the transitions of our lives that much more important today.  The actions we take for our happiness invites our families and friends to go back to the roots of their love.

Poipu Wedding Photography – Michelle + Chantal

 Poipu Wedding Photography – Michelle + Chantal 7/25/2014

Michelle and Chantal laugh a lot. This is contagious, you know.  A great way of celebrating lifelong bonds.

The wedding party laughed together, the waitresses at the venue laughed together, we all had a blast as the wedding couple did what wedding couples do, together.  As a Hawaii Wedding Photographer, seeing families look one another in the eye and say through their actions, you are now my family, is an incredible testimony to the power of love.  One family from Boston, the other from Australia, they met in the middle, here on Kauai, to celebrate the people they love.  Our walls melt in the face of love.

The ceremony was gorgeous, filled with meaningful gestures and with time for the emotional weight and profound meaning of the event to settle deep within everyone attending.  I was touched by the Lei Ceremony they held, as they offered flower leis to everyone in attendance, it reminded me that the simple gestures are the love we share.

I had met Chantal and Michelle days earlier for their pre-wedding portrait session.   This was a time for us to get to know one another and allowed me insight into their amazing friends and family who attended the wedding.  Allowing oneself to be photographed is not always the first thing on our list, so making the effort to warm everyone up to the idea definitely brings out the best photos.  Everyone showed up for the occasion and created a great set of memories.

The ceremony was held at Shipwreck’s Beach in Poipu, Kauai.  As a Kauai Wedding Photographer, Shipwreck’s is a striking location with the waves, the bluff and the wind all swirling in the afternoon light.

The reception was held at Kauai wedding venue Beach House Restaurant in Poipu with a wonderful staff led by Nicole Freeland.  By wonderful, I mean they were delightful.  Epic location with an epic staff.

Pre-Wedding Portrait Session – Kauai

pmm 20140721 082 Pre Wedding Portrait Session   Kauai

Pre-Wedding Portrait Session – Kauai

Michelle and Chantal live on the other side of the country so we were not going to have the opportunity to meet prior to their arrival in Kauai except through phone and Skype conversations.  Though these are nice, they don’t compare to hanging out with each other for an hour or two.  The pre-wedding portrait session is a great way to get to know one another.

I offer a complimentary engagement session for couples who decide on my wedding packages.  These are the best way for us to get to know one another. If the pictures work out, great, but most important is the chance to get to know one another. To get through that awkwardness of meeting one another I ask questions about the couple to break the ice.  I am prying, I am getting too close with the camera.  This is my way of saying hello but also to see how we interact with the camera. Who is comfortable and who I need to spend more time with.

And so we met in Lihue, Kauai at their hotel and had some fun with the portraits and talked some about the hopes and excitement of their wedding.  A gallery of Chantal and Michelle’s kauai wedding pictures.

Kauai Family Portrait Photography

Kauai Family Portrait Photography

The Melnyk Family Photographed at Anini Beach.

This session was part of a birthday gift while celebrating their family trip to Kauai.  I  love watching the simple joys of families together feeling the beach.  The sand, the wind, the subtle currents at Anini.  There are moments of discovery, watching crabs jump from rock to rock, or a sea turtle swimming just past the rocks.

It was great to meet this wonderful family.

When things don’t go according to my plan, the moments that emerge are usually a better that what I could have imagined.  Just let it be, don’t get caught up in my expectations and create with the family.

The the timing worked out perfectly for this portrait session as the waning afternoon light really warmed just as we started to make the pictures.  With the light in a constant state of change during sunset, form and shape, volume and contrast all take on multiple roles in their dialog determining the mood of each photo.

The Anini Coast is an ever changing and exciting place to photograph.  The coastline limits the spaces and thus creates an immense backdrop for the images.   Depending on the angle of the sunlight and the position of the sun over the horizon, it becomes a vastly different landscape.

Stacy + Cedar Kauai Wedding Photography

Stacy and Cedar June 20,2014  Kauai Wedding Photography

Stacy was telling a story about being in Japan hanging out with an improvisation troupe and the excitement for life, right now, that this group of friends embodied.  It could be summed up in one phrase, “Yes, and more!”

Yes, and more!  Definitely was a wonderful part of Stacy and Cedar’s wedding day.  Friends gathering to celebrate and families coming together.

Seeing Cedar with his brothers was really beautiful. The laughter and camaraderie of his step-brothers getting to know one another made for a memorable event.

Embracing the life we are given. This is the lesson Stacy and Cedar reminded me of through my time with them.  Make the most of this moment.

The dancing lasted well into the night.  Yes, and more!

Kalihiwai Pre-Wedding Dinner Photography – Stacy + Cedar

Pre-Wedding Dinner – Stacy + Cedar 6/19/2014

In place of a wedding rehearsal, Stacy and Cedar held a pre-wedding dinner the night before their wedding on Kauai.  For Destination Weddings in Hawaii, Wedding Rehearsal Photography is a great opportunity to meet everyone while the families and friends are getting to know one another.

I love these events because I get to hang out with the wedding couple, their friends and family and take lots of photos. This is where I am introduced to everyone and understand a little more about their relationships.  My goal with the photography at a wedding rehearsal is for everyone to feel a bit more comfortable with me on the wedding day, so hopefully they will enjoy the ceremony and wedding reception without thinking about the photography.

For Stacy and Cedar it was also an opportunity for everyone to get to know one another from the different families prior to the ceremony, making it an occasion to remember.

With the exception of a toast near the end of the night, the unstructured event allowed for a lot of improvisation and playing with the gorgeous light of a Kalihiwai, Kauai sunset.

Gordon-Jack Family Portrait – Tunnels Beach, Kauai

Family Portrait – Tunnels Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

The Gordon-Jack Family marked their trip to Kauai with family portraits.

It is a great feeling to see families together and then to work through the introductions to beautiful imagery.
Families are used to being close to one another, but to identify with one another as a family can feel foreign at first.

Most of us have some apprehension about how photos will be made.  The key is to trust the process and walk through it until the compositions and the moments emerge.

The Gordon-Jack Family was excited about the experience and willing, which is great.
Even though the boys were not sure about having their photo together, they immediately opened up to the experience.  Willingness is key to having a great picture taken of you.

Creating portraits are my service to families.
And each day I learn something new in the process.

The trade winds blow through Kauai and the ever changing weather makes for an exciting place for a portrait photographer.  As the light dances with the elements, it keeps you on your toes.  Clouds, wind, rain and waves all making for unique photographs, every day.

What a great day with the Gordon-Jack Family for their portrait on Kauai.

Anini Beach Wedding Vow Renewal

Anini Beach Wedding Vow Renewal

The Westendorfs celebrated 35 years of marriage by renewing their wedding vows at Anini Beach, Kauai, Hawaii.

This event was especially fantastic because the Westendorfs are my Aunt and Uncle. So along with my cousins, parents and Janice, we celebrated Jeneva and Harald’s 35th.  So many times I am excited to watch visiting families interact in front of my cameras because of the strong bonds in my own family.  Personally, having the opportunity to enjoy the moment with my own family enriched the ceremony.

Christiana played the guitar to set the scene.  My cousins created a circle in the sand out of rocks.

The wedding vow renewal officiant, Quinn from Island Weddings & Blessings, created a beautiful ceremony that left everyone in tears.  The style of ceremony focused in on the commitment of marriage and the beauty of family.  His words will be remembered.
