So you know that feeling you have when you meet someone in person for the first time and you feel like you’ve known them forever. That’s definitely how Justin + Makenzie felt for us. We weren’t the only ones that felt that way! Lucky for us, because we’re totally headed to Aspen for their wedding in 240 days and it’s going to be a frickin’ blast. They spent the whole session showing us all of their dance moves and we found out that they are experts at the dirty dancing pose. These two work hard, and play even hard and you can definitely tell they love even harder than that. These college sweet hearts have been together for about 4 years and Justin’s job gave them the chance to move here for the year, so of course they packed their bags, because, Hawaii, duh. This island is literally our back yard and we couldn’t be more stoked about it. Colorado is pretty dope too and we can’t wait to explore new places with them. Brad used to snowboard in Colorado and I’ve actually never been. Our bags are packed and we are so stoked to hang with these babes again.
I remember receiving a DM on Instagram from Jessica saying that her and Keaton just got engaged and that they were doing the long distance thing and that she was out in Hawaii visiting him for the holidays. Her flight back home was basically on Christmas Eve and she reached out to us the day before that. We were all in! We chose Makapu’u Beach for their engagement session because they love the outdoors and wanted both beach and mountains in their photos. K + J are both in the military so we totally understood how much being in a long distance relationship SUCKS! As the saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Distance doesn’t even phase these two. They literally fly helicopter’s for a living.
Keaton + Jessica, thanks for giving us one hell of a session! We are so excited to photograph your wedding in Idaho this year!
We photographed Sally and Lyone's engagement session at the top of Crouching Lion, just days before their backyard destination wedding in Waialua. Crouching Lion is definitely one of our favorite hikes on the island because the views are easy on the eyes which makes the hike up so worth it. We can't wait to blog their wedding next!
