We are back to share more of what we have been up to in 2015. We have so many Hawaii weddings, engagement photo sessions, maternity photos and family portraits we want to share with you. Here are a few we hope put a smile on your face the same way it does for us. These wedding and portrait sessions took place at some of our favorite wedding venues and locations on Oahu as well as on neighboring Hawaiian islands of Maui and Kauai. These locations include Moana Surfrider Hotel, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Koolina Paradise Cove Crystal Chapel, Hale Koa Hotel, Turtle Bay Resort, St. Regis at Princeville and Tiki’s Grill and Bar Coconut Club. If you are planning a wedding in Hawaii and need suggestions or recommendations, we are always happy to help our clients using our 7 years of experience as Hawaii wedding photographers and videographers! To see more about our wedding packages, portrait packages and Add-ons, see our “Prices” page on our website!
We love capturing all of the little details that the bride and groom excitedly chose in the months leading up to their wedding. The perfect shoes to dance the night away. Gorgeous wedding bouquet with colors and textures that add to the overall look of the bride, bridesmaids, groom, groomsmen and centerpieces! The right amount of sparkly and sentimental jewelry to make the bride feel and look as special as she should on her wedding day. The wedding rings are always a fun item to photograph as they are so personal and will be with the couple for the rest of their lives as the symbol of their commitment to marriage. We can’t forget special moments like the one below of the cute little flower girl covering her eyes as the bride and groom had their first kiss during their ceremony at the Crystal Chapel in Koolina!
We suggest to our couples an engagement session if possible a few months before their big day. This gives the couples beautiful photos to include on their wedding website or on their save the dates! Aside from those great reasons, it give the future bride and groom an opportunity to test out how they feel in front of the camera and gives our photography team the ability to work with the couple before the wedding day. It is always great if the couple is already familiar with and comfortable with the Hawaii wedding photography and video team by the time the big day comes! It’s not everyday that two people are followed around by so many photographers and videographers, so this little “practice session” can really help with the jitters. We also can add-on a portrait session to any wedding package for an after wedding or “trash the dress” session. This can be great for couples who have a tight timeline on the wedding day and want more photos. An after wedding session can also be great because the stress and rush of the wedding day has passed and the bride and groom can really be themselves with no one waiting on them and no schedule to adhere to or aunties and uncles grabbing them for hugs all night long!
Our Photography and Video team focuses on weddings the majority of the year, but when we get a chance we like to photograph engaged couples visiting Hawaii for engagement session, or families who want to capture memories of their special trip to Hawaii. We are always excited to watch our couples grow from fiances to bride and groom and eventually contact us for maternity sessions and family. We hope you enjoyed these photos!

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we would like to share with you our very own personal photos from L’Amour Photography and Video owner and photographers, Eric and Wendy’s vow renewal. For this special day, we hired our team of photographers and videographers to capture our intimate ceremony at Bayer Estate on Oahu. Some of our favorite Hawaii wedding vendors made this day everything we wanted it to be. Makeup and hair was done by the very talented Heather Heen of Delish Makeup with our ceremony performed by Kahu Wendell Silva. Wendy’s bouquet and floral headpiece, called a haku in Hawaiian, as well as all of the lovely flower arrangements, props and decor was by Debbie Hemingway of Designs by Hemingway. And of course, the most peaceful wedding venue on Oahu, the only place we would want to host our intimate ceremony, Bayer Estate.
The simple yet whimsical backdrop of the wedding ceremony was designed using blue, teal and cream colored fabric strip ribbons which swayed in the wind as we renewed our vows. A vintage distressed blue and white painted door added a nice touch to the ceremony site. After our intimate ceremony, we headed to the beach in front of Bayer Estate to lounge and enjoy some champagne. This cute scene is from Designs by Hemingway and featured multiple textures to create a luxurious yet, beachy feel.
This wedding season is keeping us very busy and on our toes. However, there are SO many Hawaii wedding photos that we just have to share with you all! Here is a recent wedding portrait L’Amour Photography and Video’s team photographed on the island of Maui. This wonderfully sweet bride and groom were married at the Maui wedding venue at Olowalu Plantation House.
There are too many gems from this wedding to count, so stay tuned to our Hawaii wedding blog for a full featured blog of this wedding! Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook!
We can not wait to share the rest of these Oahu wedding photos with you all! This lovely bride and groom had their Hawaii wedding ceremony and reception on Oahu’s North Shore at the wedding venue Dillingham Ranch. This country style wedding featured a wedding color scheme of light green with accents of magenta, red and peach. So gorgeous!
Stay tuned for much more from this destination wedding couple and their Oahu wedding!
