We’re lucky to be friends with this power-couple, and we’re luckier to have had the honor of photographing their incredible wedding day.

The air was thick with the true spirit of aloha, and Tiara & Matt were simply radiant. These two are the most loving people we know.

CLICK HERE to see our wonderful friends get married at one of Kauai’s most sacred places, Ke’e Beach. To start things off, we met up with Brittany and Jeff at the Kauai Coast Resort in Kapaa for a quick “getting ready” photo session. Brittany looked absolutely radiant in her dress and Jeff didn’t hesitate to show his affection as they met privately on the beach before their ceremony. Next, we hopped in the car and headed North past Hanalei to the secluded end of the road. With the dramatic Napali Coastline as the backdrop for their traditional Hawaiian wedding, and complete with an endangered monk seal snoozing right next to their ceremony, it simply can’t get any more spectacular than Ke’e Beach! After taking it all in during their ceremony and portrait session, we headed into the jungle for just a few more shots before returning to Kapaa for the best dinner in town at the Hukilau Lanai.

Julia and I were honored to photograph such an amazing couple during the most spectacular day in their lives together. The love and support of their families and close friends was very apparent and shared so generously with us. Huge MAHALOS and CONGRATULATIONS to the newlyweds, Brittany & Jeff!

CLICK HERE for an inside look at Maria and Jay’s big day at Shipwrecks Beach on Kauai’s sunny South Shore. We arrived at the Sheraton Poipu for Maria’s “getting ready” photo session as the final details came together in their tropical ocean-view room. Shortly thereafter we all headed to the beach for the main event. Maria looked stunning while Jay couldn’t have appeared happier when they both stepped out of their stretch-limo. From the limo, Maria and Jay walked through a jungly path to their secluded corner of the beach where the soft evening light cast a warm glow throughout their ceremony. As the sun moved towards the horizon we ventured to the top of Shipwrecks bluff to take advantage of the spectacular views and capture a few romantic moments. It was the perfect storybook ending to a warm and beautiful wedding day on Kauai. Congratulations to the newlyweds, Maria and Jay, and mahalo for sharing your delicious wedding cake… yum!
