HAWAII ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER | ALAINA + NATHANIEL KUALOA RANCH ENGAGEMENT SESSION

It was a pretty overcast day at Kualoa Ranch but that’s exactly how we like it. That mountain view is what we live for and we’re sure you feel the same. Alaina + Nathaniel travelled all the way from Iowa to come hang with us! They both work in the ER so it totally made sense to have them running around + being completely silly with one another since most days are probably crazy for them. They were either hand in hand or in each others arms the whole time and we were obsessed!

Alaina + Nathaniel, you are gems!

HAWAII ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER | JEEP HANGS WITH KRISTIN + CHRISTIAN

What started off as a DM on Instagram led these two our way. They fiance’d up in Hawaii and we got to shoot their engagement session up at Kualoa Ranch. Jeep hangs + these babes equals a pretty epic engagement session in our book.

Kristin + Christian, see you guys in NYC!

HAWAII ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER | JUSTIN + MAKENZIE | KUALOA RANCH, OAHU

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.
