More wedding photos from 2015! Plus some more from Engagement Sessions and Family Portraits!

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!

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!  Wedding portraits and engagement photos at the beach in Hawaii Best Hawaii wedding photo and video team L'Amour Photography Underwater photo of bride and groom after Hawaii wedding on Oahu by L'amour photography and video Hawaii maternity or hapai session on the north shore of Oahu maternity photo shoot on Hawaii by L'Amour destination weddings and family portraits at the beach in Hawaii Family portraits on Oahu Hawaii by L'Amour Photography and Video Family photos in Hawaii by Lamour at a beach with palm trees on Oahu cute kids at family portraits on the beach in Hawaii by L'Amour Family portraits on the beach on Oahu Hawaii with mother and daughter in white bohemian dresses Oahu Hawaii family portraits at the beach with sunset and palm trees

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! If you’d like to see more please check out our Facebook, Instagram, and YELP pages!

What can I say.  Our team has been pretty busy for such a long time, we have so many weddings to blog about!  We are very excited to be back and blogging about our many wonderful couples’  weddings in Hawaii!

This featured wedding was a gorgeous tropical themed wedding with wedding colors of coral and teal held at the stunning West Oahu wedding venue of Lanikuhonua.  Seahorses, starfish, shells, Hawaiian patterns and waves were used throughout the wedding invitations, ceremony chair decor, reception tables and centerpieces.  We hope you all enjoy these gorgeous Oahu wedding details and  the super cute bride and groom as much as we did!

While the bride and her bridesmaids got their hair and makeup done in their Waikiki hotel bridal suite, they wore matching floral robes. The ladies looked so lovely in their teal robes with the bride stood out in a matching robe in white.   This Hawaii destination wedding bride wore a lace wedding gown with a sweet-heart neckline and embellished sash.  The wedding gown was accessorized with exotic styled earnings and a bracelet with coral, red and blue stones to match her wedding theme colors. The groom wore a candy striped coral and white bow-tie with his black suit

This Oahu wedding reception was adorned with coral and teal paper lanterns and strings of lights.  Reception tables featured a real pineapple as the centerpiece, white gold plates as table numbers, as  well as mason gars with shells and tea lights on burlap table runners.  The bride and groom’s chairs had personalized wood signs hanging with “Mr” and “Mrs” written on them. Guests were greeted with seating cards of teal and coral wave shaped tags tied onto starfish. What a cute tropical wedding detail!  The bride and groom gifted each guest with a mason jar of Hawaiian Res Alaea Salt as the wedding favor.

The newlyweds cut their single level square cake with the cutest cake set ever.  The silver cake cutting set was stamped with their names and “Together Forever” and two forks were stamped with “I Do” and “Me Too.”  All of these cute wedding decor details created a fun atmosphere that carried from the ceremony through the reception.  This fun loving bunch danced the night away under the colorful paper lanterns and strings of lights and ended the night with a kiss and a dip!
