Christmas at the Beach | Kauai, Hawaii

peter had this idea in his head and he just couldn’t shake it. we had to take our christmas tree out to the beach, set it up, figure out how to get power and have a lit and decorated christmas tree while we camped:). we have a little tradition that on ever holiday, we go camping at polihale state park and we call it polihalidays. i guess this year we took it to the next level;)

peter did most of the work so i can’t take credit for this idea, (i helped decorate, a bit;)) but it really was magical to have our christmas tree set up in the sand while we sat and watched the sun go down and the sky turn to stars (and later, rain… haha). this is my first christmas almost ever that i will be without my family but thankfully we will be seeing them in a few weeks over in vietnam and thailand and it was awesome to get to spend this ‘polihaliday’ evening with them before they left. i’m ever grateful to have a man who makes me feel like i’m home no matter where we are, and whether you’re in the snow or at the beach there is just something so magical about christmas.

and to make the holiday even more magical, some friends in the campsite beside us sent off 50 Chinese lanterns into the sky, i had never seen these before but WHY ARE WE NOT ALWAYS BUYING CHINESE LANTERNS!? they are seriously the coolest!

i hope you all have a wonderful holiday surrounded by people you love, great friends, food and laughter. merry christmas friends from peter and i!! xox

Jessica and Griffin | Enchanted Elopement

griffin pulled up the car to the meeting spot and jessica jumped out and ran towards us. you could see how excited she was and from the second we said hello. this girls smile just exudes light and joy and as soon as i saw her i felt like she had been an old friend for years. when griffin walked down to join us and i saw them together i knew it was going to be a really special evening. they grabbed their vows and picked a spot by the water. it was a grey sky day and after shooting in 2 solid weeks of rain i was just grateful it wasn’t pouring outside. they stood there at the edge of the water, holding hands and reading their vows to each other. when they finished griffin slowly brushed the tears off of her cheek as he looked at her with the most joyful eyes. i kinda wanted to tear up i felt so much happiness for them.

this night will always be memorable for me for a few reasons but one reason is that it no joke ended up being the most incredible and unexpected sunset OF MY LIFE! the grey sky all of a sudden turned into fire, and the ocean was lit up in a million different shades of red and purple reflecting off of the sky. everyone on the island was loosing their minds over the colours of the sky, and in a place where beautiful sunsets are on the daily, there was definitely something special about this one. we all stood in awe after i had shot what felt like a million photographs (i just couldn’t stop!), and jessica said she saw it as a good Oman for their marriage to have such rainy sky’s turn into such a beautifully painted canvas, i couldn’t agree more.
