Makapuu Beach, 5/4/11

Makapuu Beach is beautiful, but it can be a challenge to get photos there without people appearing in the background. But we know this spot very well and have found some places where it looks like you have the beach all to yourselves.

Wedding at St. Augustine Cathedral, 2/16/11

The St. Augustine Cathedral in Waikiki has beautiful stained glass. We try to make use of it in our formal photography whenever possible. Like many churches, it's a little too dark for photography using just the available light during the ceremony, but we adjust our flash so it's not obvious. Nearby Waikiki Beach is a good place for some more formals, if you don't mind having other people in the background!

Wedding at St. Joaquim Church, 1/15/11

St. Joaquim Church is one of several picturesque small churches on Oahu's windward side that are great choices for traditional weddings with a strong Hawaiian feel. Near the churches are many wonderful locations for outdoor formal photography. Weddings in these churches are a nice alternative to beach weddings, and you don't have to worry about bad weather interfering with your ceremony. This video depics highlights from the wedding of an Australian woman and an American man.

The Hale Koa Hotel

The Hale Koa hotel in Waikiki is a very popular choice for weddings for couples who live here in Hawaii. There are several different attractive outdoor ceremony sites, there is a choice of indoors or outdoors for the reception, and good locations for formal photography abound. We know every nook and cranny of this place!
