Cierra + Reid|Big Island Portrait Photographer


Reid is off to college and these two lovebirds will have to endure the hardship of a long distance relationship…but until then, they decided to soak up the rest of this glorious Hawaiian summer, which included this photoshoot to remember the goods times that were and look forward to the ones yet to be :-). Wishing you both the very best!c1 c1a c2 c2a c3 c3a c4 c8

Kela & Dan//Big Island Photographer

We took these photos this spring to celebrate Kela & Dan’s one year anniversary together. I thought now would be the best time to showcase these beauties as they have recently gotten engaged! Kela is one of my dear childhood friends from Hawai’i and first met Dan on a missions trip in Fiji…fast forward a couple years and countries later, they are to wed in 2014. CONGRATULATIONS you guys!! I love love & I love you both, cheers to many, many, MANY happy years together.

Yes, I’m talking to you, the one reading this post. Right now. Would you like that?
