OK ... I am still way behind on blog postings from this past year.  Jacqueline and Izzy chose to have a destination wedding and were married last April in a beautiful beach wedding at a private home in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point), Mexico!  My great friend and fellow photographer, Melissa Dunstan, accompanied me on this trip and we had a great time ... thanks so much Melissa :-)!

LOVE! :) That first black and white shot is breath taking!

Jason Hicks:

Wow, this shoot is incredible!

(10.27.10 @ 08:47 AM)

I was so excited this past winter when Adrielle contacted us about photographing her destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii, after seeing us at a bridal show!  After a few emails and a couple of phone calls, we were booking our tickets!

 

This wedding was full of friends, family, culture and of course, a lot of love!!  Adrielle lives in Phoenix and strives to be unique in every way and Hinano is from Kona and loves his heritage and culture.  Their wedding combined all aspects of their personalities and came off in fantastic fashion!  They were married at the Kona Temple and their reception was held at the adjacent Morman Church.  There was a lot of yummy traditional food, singing, beautiful hula dancing and emotional speeches thoughout the evening.  Much of the emotional outpouring came from Hinano's family as they had to say goodbye to their son and brother ... Hinano made the move a few days after the wedding to join Adrielle in Phoenix.

 

Thank you both so much for being so wonderful!!  You were amazing to work with and your families were just the best!  Enjoy!

 

Wait 'till you see the trash the dress session with these two ... AMAZING!!!  Can't wait to post it and the photos we took throughout the rest of the two weeks we stayed on the Big Island!

We are not going to discuss what happened in this series of photos ... needless to say, you can probably figure it out on your own.  In the end, Adrielle was fine, everyone got a good laugh and now she has a really cool wedding day story to tell :-)!

very nice wedding photos!

(10.14.10 @ 01:31 PM)

I have been going through serious blog withdrawals and just couldn't stand it anymore ... I HAVE to blog!!

 

I wanted to at least get a posting up for a very dear friend of mine.  Jamie contacted me last spring saying she was getting married in August.  She asked if we could shoot the wedding which, by the way, would be taking place in Hawaii where she lives.  I was so happy because it turned out we already had a wedding booked in Hawaii ... the day after hers!!  It was just amazing timing and couldn't have played out any better!

 

Jamie and Billy got married in a morning ceremony at the Kona Temple on the Big Island.  We started there, grabbing a few shots before heading to the airport to catch a flight to Oahu ... destination, Jamie and Billy's home on the North Shore.  There, Jamie and Billy freshened up, did a few more shots and got ready for the big party!!  It was a perfect day all around!

 

Jamie, thank you so much for asking us to be your wedding photographers!  It was such an honor and we are so incredibly happy for you both ... it is going to be a great life from here on out :-)!!!  XOXOXO!!

 

We started our day o the Big Island at the Kona Temple

Very nice wedding photo service!!!

(10.08.10 @ 03:48 PM)

Darcey and David were married October 2nd, 2009, at Lake Powell in an intimate ceremony with their close family and friends - most of which traveled from across the US to attend!  The couple is from Massachusetts, but they love the West and decided it was the perfect place for their special day.

 

We didn't meet them until the day of their wedding and they were simply amazing people to be around!!  Their ceremony took place at sunset, on a perfect day I might add, at the Coves along the exquisite shores of Lake Powell.  They then moved over to the Lake Powell Resort for their reception.  I have to say, the moment of Darcey being led down the aisle by her mother and father was one of the most emotional and touching I have ever witnessed at a wedding ... beautiful!  Another beautiful aspect was in the landscape.  Sunset could not have been a more lovely choice as they stood to take their vows on the edge of a sun-kissed bluff with the surrounding water and escarpments bathed in a beautiful pink glow as a full moon rose behind them ... WOW ... breathtaking!!

 

Darcey and David, you were both so amazing to work with and get to know and that has certainly spilled over since the wedding!  We thank you for the privilege of being a part of your wedding and words cannot express how much we appreciate your amazing testimonial and that you would take the time to write one that comprehensive ... thank you so much :-)!!!!
