“Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. It has a sole intention of bringing people together to a time called forever” -Unknown 💚 A little rain and wind didn’t stop Adam and Stevie from taking some of the most beautiful engagement photos I’ve had the pleasure of photographing! 💚 What I love most about Hawaii is not just it’s prestine beaches, but some of the most epic views, if you just head up! 💚 So happy to have found a new location for future couples, but even more excited for Adam and Stevie’s wedding that’s coming up soon! #vhbrides 💚

🌟 When brides ask me what they should invest in, one of the things I tell them is a STUNNING bouquet! 🌟 I have seen and photographed so many weddings, from the simplest weddings to larger scale weddings, and your bouquet is always center stage! 🌟 Think about it, it will be in the majority of your wedding images that you will be looking at for years and generations to come! 🌟 Even if you are having a simple wedding, make sure you make your wedding bouquet a priority!!! 🌟 Looking for an amazing florist? Head to the blog to see who my #preferredvendors are!! This stunning bouquet by @bluekaidesigns is one of my favorites! 🌟

YOU GUYS!!! Yesterday was an absolutely BLAST!! 🍍 I jetted off to Maui yesterday to attend #TheJamesandJessWorkshop with two of my favorite people @jameswitty and @jessfairchild ! 🍍 I met these two beautiful sounds two years ago at the @showit.co United Conference and instantly loved them when I took one of their breakout sessions! 🍍 Then last years conference on the dance floor is when I realized just how awesome they are!!👋🏽 🍍 When I found out they were coming to Maui and doing a workshop, I may have been the first one to sign up!! To spend the day with them, listen to their teaching, pick their brains, AND have cups of Rose’ with it, I mean, WIN all the way around! And the other incredible #bossladies that were there!!! 🍍 And then to add this incredibly stunning couple for a shootout at the @ritzcarlton at the beautiful @steeplehousemaui , well, I can say my day was made! 🍍 I can’t wait to show you more from this day, and even more excited that James and Jess are keynote speakers at United this year! Sharing the stage with them and so many others is such an incredible honor!!! 🍍<——- @jameswitty and @jessfairchild just for you!!🙄🤣

One of the reasons why I love my job is not only the fact of being able to capture love on your wedding day, but, also being able to make dreams come true. 💛 Do you know how many times I hear the following…. . ” I hate the wedding photos we took.” . ” We had a ‘cheap’ photographer/friend take photos, and I wish we would have hired a photographer” . ” I wish I knew how much I would want wedding photos” . and the one that hurts the most… . “I don’t have any wedding photos.” 😭 YOU GUYS, it breaks my heart to hear things like this, which is why it is SO IMPORTANT to invest in a wedding photographer, but that’s a whole other blog post ( DON’T SKIMP ON YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!) 😫 So, to able to give my friend and fellow wedding vendor Janae the wedding images she wished she had, made me incredibly happy! Janae is an incredible baker at She Bakes It Designer Cakes and just relocated to Georgia, so hit her up if you are in need of sweets! 😍 Janae and Tremel were celebrating their 7 year anniversary, and after watching so many couples get married over the years, it was time she had the wedding photos she dreamed of! Head over to the blog to check out this gorgeous shoot! 😍 HMU: @madyyylion Event Coordinator and Florals: @vidachicevents Cake: @shebakesit

Yesterday photoshoot was another one of those shoots where the end result was so much more better than I could anticipate! 🌹 It was one of those days where everything happens for a reason! You would never know by looking at my gorgeous friend, that she almost didn’t make the shoot because she wasn’t feeling well. 🌹 I wanted this QUEEN to feel as beautiful as she is both on the outside and inside. 🌹 And with the help of some AMAZING vendors, we did just that!!! 🌹 I can not WAIT to show you more of this beautiful session!!! 🌹 A huge thank you to all of the vendors who made this day happen! 👇🏽 Studio: @simplybabyphotography HMU: @dorysfoltin @maleanacosmetics Florals: @suvexpressions Royalty throne: @ambientrentals My beautiful friend: @leticia_letty

As Casey sat at Koki beach on one of the many adventures she and Matt had taken as a couple, she knew she was in love with him and wanted to spend the rest of her life with him. ❤️ At the exact moment, Matt felt the same way. ❤️ So it made sense that they would gather back in this special beach, surrounded by their closest friends and family, some who flew literally around the world, to watch the dedicate their lives to each other! ❤️ Yesterday’s wedding on the Road to Hana was absolutely amazing! ❤️ @caseymarissad

🖤 I don’t photograph a ton of black and white images! 🖤 I love color so much, and I believe black and white photos should be timeless, classic shots. 🖤 I love this simple but perfect shot of Elisa on her wedding day. Filled with nerves, anticipation, and joy knowing that In a few minutes, she doesn’t belong to just herself anymore. She’s about to be a wife! 🖤

🌴 Yesterday’s wedding at @germainesluau was absolutely beautifully! 🌴 I knew the minute that Jeanine messaged me last year for her wedding, that I wanted her to choose me, as she was marrying a Hicks man—> no relation!! So it was absolutely a #teamhicks day! 🌴 Hawaii gave us gorgeous weather, the luau at @germainesluau was fun, and I’m pretty sure that Hershel married the most beautiful bride! Can’t wait to share more from this beautiful wedding with you guys! 🌴 Makeup: @projface Florals: @hauolishaku

🌊🌊 I RIPPED MY PANTS TO GET THIS SHOT!🌊🌊 🤦🏽‍♀️ Now that I have your attention, yes, I totally ripped my yoga pants last night, right at the butt crack part, to get this epic shot last night! 🤪 AJ & Anna were so sweet, and luckily we could laugh about it and they had a sweater I could wrap around my butt for the remainder do the shoot! 😰 But, I think it was totally worth it! ❤️ What’s something embarrassing that’s happened to you while you were working?! Couldn’t be worse than having your butt cheek out in the open air for all too see, can it?!? 🤪 Thank you @indisoulphoto for introducing me to this gorgeous couple!

Good morning Monday and hello to a new week! 😍 Monday’s are always my busiest days as I am usually swamped with emails from the weekend, messages to answer, weekly to do lists to write, and all of those other things that goes on behind the scenes to make a business run and be successful! ☀️ And this beautiful day is no different ! See, I truly enjoy Monday’s, a day that I didn’t enjoy for years! Because I would get up, and go to work for a job I didn’t like, in a corporate position that was sucking the life out of me, and didn’t see my value. ❤️ But now, all those mundane things I have to do on a Monday brings my heart so much joy. Because I’m doing them for my own business! One I’m passionate about. One that I was meant to do! 😘 Monday’s don’t seem so terrible then! Drop a comment below on what you are excited about this week! 👇🏽 . .
