Gaurav reached out wanting to do something special for his girlfriend Yunzhe's birthday by booking a couples shoot together. I was thrilled and loved the idea, such a sweet way to celebrate and commemorate life. We met up at one of my favorite beaches on Maui's south side for an epic hour of golden hour glow! Thank you so much Gaurav & Yunzhe for your openness and trust, couples that are down and trust the process help themselves by helping me produce greater photos! Love meeting all you beautiful, heartfelt humans out there <3
We met on one of West Maui's beautiful beaches for the surprise session of Elizabeth's life. Spencer wanted to start the shoot under the ruse it was "just a regular photoshoot" so there was no hiding in the bushes for me this time. Somehow he had held a perfect poker face during Elizabeth's attempts to pry the truth from him. She suspected it could be a proposal moment, but his fierce insistence that it wasn't had her fooled (or at least mostly fooled). We waited about a 1/3 of the way through the session, to really sell the ruse when I placed them back to back with a prompt for a fun photo I had in mind. She may have suspected at this moment, but when she turned around there was only the overwhelming joy at the sight she saw behind her. It was true, the proposal had happened! With lots of laughter and teasing banter, we enjoyed the rest of our session in the giddy glow of love. Thank you Spencer & Elizabeth, wishing you many years of happiness!

Meet the Erickson family of Haiku and their adorable daughter Ariella. Her mother is a horticulturalist, and responsible for much of the planting done at our shoot location, the Haiku Mill, during her years working there. Her father is an arborist. So, naturally, this girl is a future green thumb in the making! Even as we made our way through the grounds Ariella couldn't stop reaching out and grabbing the many leaves, vines and flowers surrounding her. Haiku Mill is an absolutely breathtaking location and probably one of the most epic wedding venues in the world!
