Our Hawaiian Vacation

  • Aloha Vaca 2013 | Part 2

hard to believe that the trip we had been looking forward to for so long is over! I mentioned in the “part one” post that this wasn’t really a “Lay on the beach all day” type of vacation. We SAW a lot and we DID a lot! I mean, when are we going to be back in Oahu, Hawaii again?! Not anytime soon. This was a once in a lifetime type of trip. Two young couples with a week to explore an amazing island…it doesn’t get much better than that! We had an absolute BLAST and we fit as much as we possibly could into every single day! We’re so thankful that we have such awesome friends that make great travel buddies!

A Hawaiian Engagement Session | Lanikai Beach, Oahu

  • Erik + Meagan | Engaged

months ago, I blogged about some BIG dreams. I threw some crazy ones out there like shooting a wedding in Italy, visiting Australia and last but not least… shooting a session Hawaii! Welp! Mark one of those items off the list!! I love how God works things out. I blogged about that and then one of our sweet friends from high school got in engaged! And guess where she lives…. HAWAII! Not only does she live in Hawaii, she lives on Oahu and was flying in the DAY we were going to be flying out! Despite the limited time frame, we made a shoot happen on the beautiful beaches of Lanikai!! Meagan and Erik look the part of a perfect beachy couple living the dream in Hawaii!

Our Hawaiian Vacation

  • Aloha Vaca 2013 | Part 1

almost overwhelming to try to put our whole trip into one post. Our vacation to Hawaii was simply amazing. It all came about in August at Brendan and Jenna’s wedding (which is featured in The Knot VAMDDC Magazine right now! Woohoo!). Josh and Mandy were in the bridal party and so was Michael. As they were sitting around the table, they casually said “Hey! We’re going to a wedding in Seattle after Christmas… anyone want to meet us in Hawaii?!”. Michael and I looked at each other and the wheels started turning.
