Brad & Mari Engaged


High school sweethearts Mari and Brad flew down from San Francisco, CA to visit family and to begin preparing for their October wedding here at Cafe Julia YWCA in Honolulu! :)

After being in contact for almost a year, it was so great to finally meet the two and work with them here on island!!  We visited the Kaniakapupu Ruins prior to heading to the Lanai lookout to shoot.  I had Mari and Brad interact with each other candidly majority of the time in hope that I could capture some of their most intimate moments.  Even though the pressure of being in front of a camera can affect the way you feel, I can honestly say that after observing and shooting their interaction, you can instantly tell that their attraction with each other goes beyond just being lovers, but true best friends! (If this is what its like being with your best friend for more than a decade, then I'm all in!) <3

With their transition into marriage, I cannot wait to see all that is in store for Mari and Brad!  From what began as little as a teenage dream has blossomed into a future Happily Ever After ... #dreamsdoComeTrue
