Back in July I had the opportunity to photograph Branden & Allison’s wedding in Holualoa on the big Island,Hawaii. What a gorgeous location! I kind of reminds me of where I live in upcountry Maui, very green and lots of fields, goats & horses..simply beautiful. We were in the clouds with a few sprinkles of rain making everything fresh and vibrant for this special day.
I first met Allison while she was getting ready for her big day.. she looked stunning. she was calm while laughing and drinking champagne with her girlfriends but you could feel the excitement in the air. Brandon was hanging out with the guys in a different part of the house..not rushing, just chilling..looking forward to the evenings ceremony.
The clouds lifted just in time for the days events. The ceremony was very sweet with lots of laughter. Branden & Allison radiated joy and love. Everyone around was smiling as they said their I do’s. After some family photos the reception began. It turned out to be a perfect day. Thank you so much Branden & Allison for having us there to capture your memories. Many thank to my husband Nate for all his help!
They decided to have a 1st look before the ceremony and do a few portraits so after the ceremony they could relax and enjoy their reception. I think this is such a great idea.. the 1st look is such a special moment to capture.
We did a Trash the Dress session the next day in Waikoloa. Stay tuned for that post tomorrow… a quick preview:
