Oh, love. It’s what makes life special. It’s what gives relationships substance, and it’s what we all long for. When you’re able to capture love from behind the lens it’s breathtaking. Witnessing and documenting such raw emotion will forever leave a mark on your heart. You feel as if you can almost reach into the images and feel the joy emanating from them. Whatever the style of session, capturing this love as a Hawaii wedding photographer transcends the same. Simply put, it’s magical.
I recently had the pleasure of photographing a sweet couple at the gorgeous Dillingham Ranch in Wailua, Hawaii. This venue is one of the best destination wedding locations across the world. It’s beautiful and vintage vibe emanates as soon as you step foot onto the property. You are immediately surrounded by a feeling of warmth and love in the air. Sometimes with styled sessions you have to manipulate the poses to try to portray the look and emotions you searching for, but I lucked out with this one. My gorgeous models for the session, Laura and Josh, were a real couple, newly engaged, and totally smitten with one another. It was so rewarding to capture candid emotions and see the love radiating from their hearts, flowing between each other. They were posed to capture my photography style, but the love displayed was totally genuine and inescapably tangible.
Just as love gives substance to life, I think it’s safe to say love gives substance to photography as well. And it is so, so special.
Capturing this Dreamy Tropical Wedding at Dillingham Ranch, Hawaii was an experience I won’t soon forget. What a gorgeous venue!
