We absolutely love doing engagement photo sessions and this couple are the perfect example why we do! We met up with Ann and Sam, who are both Army Emergency Room nurses, on the Northshore of Oahu at Sunset Beach to find the beach fairly empty and the waves with a high swell. This adventurous couple marched up and down the beach, braved the waves, and played on the reef. I got so wrapped up in taking pictures that I lost my sandals about half way through the shoot. We found one of them, but I think we sacrificed the other to the ocean. Ann and Sam were down to try anything for a great picture. We think their hard work paid off! Thank you Ann and Sam for a lovely day at sunset beach!
Located on the North Shore of Oahu, Loulu Palm Estate offers what few other wedding venues in Oahu can: a spacious lawn, peaceful atmosphere, private beach, plantation style home, and beautiful landscaping with tropical plants and palm trees. Just a stones throw from world famous surf spot, Sunset Beach, Loulu Palm Estate has a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean from its mile long stretch of private beach. If you and your wedding planner can dream it up, it can be done at the expansive lawn and beach at Loulu Palm Estate.
Loulu Palm Estate is an escape from the high rise hotels, tourist traffic, and city lights of Honolulu. This wedding venue is perfect for brides seeking an intimate, beachfront, completely personalized wedding.
We were introduced to this private estate recently when we were asked to photograph Loulu Palm Estate. The wedding was gorgeous! The decor and floral arrangements were done by Yvonne Event Floral and Decor in coordination with wedding and event planner Sandra at Finishing Touch. Music was provided by the very entertaining DJ Troy Michael.

What better way to start the new year than to get married! Alicia and Lee were married at world renowned Lanikai Beach on December 31, 2008. Ranked amongst the best beaches in the world, Lanikai Beach was the perfect backdrop for Alicia and Lee’s wedding ceremony. Alicia and Lee were surrounded by their closest friends and family as they exchanged vows and rings.
I loved all of the sentimental details of this wedding! Alicia looked beautiful in her mother’s wedding dress and incorporated her support for the US Marines into the ceremony and reception. Her garter belt was in camouflage print with the Marine Corps symbol on a charm in the center. The favors were accented by photos of Alicia with Lee in uniform.
The beautiful, two tier, round fondant cake was made by Vikki at Sunshine’s Cake Creations. Eric and I never turn down cake at a wedding and are becoming some-what of wedding cake connoisseurs. This cake stands out in our minds as one of the best we have had so far. Perfectly decorated, sweet, creamy, and strawberries in the filling! Love it!
Congratulations to Alicia and Lee on their beautiful wedding and marriage! We wish them the very best!
