Christina and Ben | Kauai Enchanted Elopement

christina, when you smile, or cry, or laugh, or breathe, you stop time. nothing else exists outside of those moments. in those moments, i have learned everything i need to learn. i am loved.” – ben to christina.

kauai adventure elopement mahaulapu cliff ceremonywhen they woke up that morning, christina and ben were expecting to have a early morning ceremony down on the cliffs, followed by an adventure hike in the mountains with peter and i. what they didn’t expect was that a cat about to have kittens would make them almost an hour later than expected for their ceremony (which was still incredibly beautiful), and their day would be proceeded by being chased around the island from a temperamental rain storm that wouldn’t give us a break. they slow danced as the rain fell to “i want to grow old with you” from adam sandlers ‘the wedding singer’ movie on an empty white sand beach and it turns out, it all was exactly the way their story was meant to go and i can’t think of a single thing that would have made it better.kauai adventure elopement first dance west side wiamea
these two exchanged the most beautiful and tear jerking vows to one another at their cliffside ceremony, and then we made our way up to the mountains to start their adventure. after an hour of driving and an hour and a half of us all sitting in a parking lot waiting for the weather to clear up (at least we had a cooler:)), these two embraced the day exactly as it came. the fog may have dampened our hiking plans but it was so mysterious and beautiful, and because of it we found ourselves on the most beautiful deserted beach, watching their first dance under the rain drops, laughing and popping champagne bottles toasting to their new adventure together. and at the end of the day, just when we thought the storm couldn’t follow us any further, it showed back up and this time, it brought the most beautiful full and lasting rainbow i had ever seen. these two brought magic around them no matter what the weather, and peter and i couldn’t have been more honored to get to be a part of their day and to have had an entire day to make some rad new friends. we’ll be cheering you guys on in the next winter olympics and peter already is planning our trip back to calgary to go on a bobsled ride with you ben, haha!! congrats you two, go canada!

Emily and Brandon | Anniversary Session | Photographer: Micah Camara

Oooh where to start with these two! This session was photographed by my 2nd lead photographer Micah Camara with Peter on the drone to get these insane areal shots, and I was SO jealous I wasn’t there after meeting Emily and Brandon and seeing that incredible rainbow they were blessed with!

“Maybe we’ll get a little rainbow” she said that morning, with no inclination of even a rainstorm as the sky was perfectly blue. Before the session they both decided to head out and purchase post cards of Kauai where they could write love letters to each other and read them at the session, and when they both pulled out the exact same post card there was a special kind of electricity in the air. Soon enough, the rainbow Emily had wished for appeared out in the ocean and before they knew it it had grown into one of the most epic double rainbows of all time. Emily’s eyes filled with tears and she threw her arms out as if to hug the universe as she cuddled back into Brandon’s arms. The island blessed them to say the least and what a honor to have Micah and Peter there to capture it for them.

After their session I met with the team and with Emily and Brandon and we all went out for drinks and dinner to celebrate the epicness that had just happened (and I sulked a little bit in sadness that I wasn’t there to see it myself, haha!). These two are so fun to be around, always laughing and joking and even though I wasn’t even at their session I felt like I had known them for years. (And as it turned out they actually knew one of Peter and Micah’s old work friends from Kauai and they had been best friends with him when going to University, it’s just a crazy small world!)

It’s always so amazing to see how our cameras connect us with all of these different rad people and incredible stories. amazing job to Micah and Pete for rocking this session and Emily and Brandon you guys are da bomb! Come back and visit us soon!
