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!

Hawaii Wedding Photography – Oahu Beachfront Wedding Estate – Love Notes

Oahu wedding Photography in Hawaii by L'Amour Photography and Video

 

I can’t even put into words how sweet this couple is. The couple came together in the hallway of their  Oahu wedding venue to share their love letters before the ceremony.  There was no peeking during this time, but the bride and groom held hands the whole time, shed tears and laughter, and took the last few moments together before they made that walk down the aisle to make it official! Stay posted for more to come from this beachfront wedding on Oahu.

Hawaii Wedding Photographers – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Hawaiian Fairytale

 

When we think of a fairy tale wedding in Hawaii, this image definitely comes to mind.  Our recent bride wore a gorgeous wedding dress with a full flowy ballgown type skirt.  We chose this location with lush greenery and a thick bamboo forest for the newly married couple’s Day After Session aka Trash the Dress Session. But, don’t worry, that’s just a name, that dress was not damaged! We really are loving the lighting of this photo. The bride seems to be glowing among the darkness of the bamboo.  The bride’s floral headpiece also really adds to the ethereal and fairy tale feeling of this photo.   Hawaii Destination Wedding on Oahu with photo by L'Amour Photography and Video.

Underwater Trash the Dress Photos – L’Amour Photography

Trash the dress photos are definitely a favorite of ours.  These post wedding photo sessions are more relaxing and with limitless possibilities compared to wedding portraits during the hustle and bustle of the big day.  We also love trash the dress sessions because we get to travel to fun locations, like this beautiful spot out on the sandbar on Oahu.  We get a chance to really hang out with our couples and have a good time getting creative and letting them be themselves on camera.  This couple was the perfect fit for a trash the dress session at the sandbar. They love water and were great at being playful in front of the camera.  They even brought out their own stand up surfboards for the trash the dress photos.  The boards came in handy too as we trekked all of our gear out to this tiny strip of sand out in the ocean!
