Bryan and Veronica’s Hawaii Wedding Gallery

Just a Little Hawaii Magic Happening Here

Bryan and Veronica tied the knot at a small cove situated behind the JW Marriott Hotel on the West Shore.   The cove is free to use, and not property of the hotel or the resort.  I do about 50% of my weddings here as the location is not too far away from Waikiki, and rather perfect for sunset photos.  Since the opening of the Disney Aulani, this location has gotten a little more crowded, but is nothing like the crowded beaches of Waikiki.   If you are looking for a beach that is very secluded, you should head to the North Shore.

The weather got a little cloudy during the end of the photo shoot, but I was still very much able to get great photos.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-3 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryYup, another vow shot

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-11 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryIndividual shots up next.   Bryan is sporting a handmade tea leaf maile lei.  These leis last forever and are tough as nails.  It’s a perfect keepsake to remember your wedding in Oahu.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-12 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryI took a handful of individual shots of Veronica.   By default, I usually take just a little more pictures of the bride than the groom.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-7 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryHere come the clouds

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-8 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryClouds usually are great for fashion photos, as they represent conflict.  In a wedding photo, utilizing clouds to your advantage can be tricky as you don’t want wedding photos to be at all negatively biased.  So the solution is simple.   Have the couple kiss, and it sends the message that “Love conquers all.”

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-6 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryDigital photography outperforms film in stormy weather as the clouds can be manipulated to look more dramatic.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-5 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryOne of my favorite wedding shots to do at Ko’olina, the reflective water shot.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-1 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryThese were one of the first shots that we took at Bryan and Veronica’s wedding.  It was taken before the ceremony.  Notice we have blue skies here and cloudy skies just 30 minutes later.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-10 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryNothing but blue skies.   This was shot on the opposite side of the cove where they got married.  On one side of the cove, there was nothing but clouds, but on the other side, there was nothing but blue skies.   I don’t usually shoot on this side of the cove as you can see hotels in the background.  But you don’t really notice them in this shot.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-18 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryNow we’re getting into sunset.  Notice the clouds on the horizon.  Yes, the sun is setting 30 minutes earlier than expected due to clouds on the horizon.   This happens very often.  Timing the sunset perfectly requires a photographer who understands not only the medium of photography, but one who also understands the weather.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-19 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryWith most of my shots, I shoot more than one angle per pose, including a far away shot, and close up.  Kinda just like the movies!

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-13 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryUsing a cloudy sky to my advantage.  It doesn’t hurt to have an photogenic couple too right?

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-14 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryWhen a bride has great legs, I always make sure they show them off.  That same rule though, does not apply to the groom haha.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-16 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryVeronica’s bangs got in the way of a lot of shots.   I had a knife and I would have cut them off if she asked me too.  We of course, had to do a funny shot with them.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-15 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryIs it just me, or do these crazy fun shots look a lot better than my posed stuff.

Post-Hawaii-Wedding-17 Bryan and Veronica's Hawaii Wedding GalleryThis photo is best shot on digital as I can get my exposure exactly where I want it.  It’s really hard to pull off with film.  If it were shot on film though, the sun would have not been as washed out.

Bryan and Veronica ordered a rather robust wedding  photography package from me, opting for 1 1/2 hours of photography coverage, but going full digital instead of ordering a roll of film.   The extended photography coverage allowed me to really take my time, and to get in a lot of different poses in.  We literally shot from one side of the cove to the next, chasing blue skies when we could, and taking advantage of cloudy a skies when appropriate.

I wish these two my best!
