Take a look at this gorgeous wedding at Waikiki Beach’s historic hotel the Sheraton Moana Surfrider. The bride wore a lovely v-cut lace sheath dress with a beaded sash. The wedding details were blush pink and gold with satin pink table cloths, sparkly gold table numbers, and towering centerpieces featuring candles in glass bulbs hanging from flower adorned branches. Sound amazing? We think so too!
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!

Perfectly golden beams of light really accented this cute couple as they stood exchanging vows with Waikiki Beach in Oahu right beside them. This bride and groom had impeccable modern style which they brought to the decor and overall aesthetic of their wedding ceremony and reception at the Diamond Lawn at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel. While the Surfrider is one of the oldest hotels on Waikiki Beach, this couple proved that modern style and decor is the perfect compliment to this vintage style Hawaii wedding venue!
We absolutely love photographing Sheraton Moana Surfrider Weddings. Check out our other blog articles of wedding ceremonies and receptions at this Oahu wedding venue and other Hawaii Wedding Photographs on our Blog!
We love love love this photo because it captures the true atmosphere of this whole wedding; fun, lively, classy, vibrant! (Just check out their Save the Date!) This morning wedding ceremony at the Moana Surfrider Hotel in Honolulu Hawaii had a great ending with the all of the bridesmaids, groomsmen, parents, and the lovely bride and groom all dancing their way through a shower of bubbles. This couple had the right idea by offering bubble guns to their guests. There were tons and tons of bubbles and their guests didn’t have to huff and puff at all!

Despite my disdain for Kanye West and his uncalled for praise of Beyonce, you gotta give it to the girl. Whenever we hear Beyonce’s song “All the Single Ladies” play at a wedding reception, we KNOW that all of the ladies in the room are going to get excited for the bouquet toss (sometimes TOO excited). It is so much fun to see nicely dressed women in heels jumping and clawing into the air for the flowers. So, thank you Beyonce for getting all the single ladies out there pumped up and motivated to catch that bouquet!
This groom had some style! Dressed in a traditional Filipino dress shirt, a barong, this groom added some Michael Jackson flair with a sequined glove for the first dance. This fun loving couple had one of THE BEST first dances we have seen. They entered the Ballroom at the Moana Surfrider Hotel and the groom broke out into an impressive Michael Jackson dance. Everyone loved it and we were laughing along with them as we photographed their wedding in Honolulu Hawaii.
Shazarie and Nicholas came all the way from Washington for their intimate beach ceremony at Waialae Beach Park.
Shazarie and her girls got ready at one of our favorite places, the Sheraton Moana Surfrider Hotel at Waikiki Beach. It was an absolutely gorgeous day with perfectly blue skies out her window as she got her hair done by Sarah of Wendy Robin’s Studio W. You may recognize makeup artist Wendy Robin’s name from our previous article about Eric and I modeling wedding gowns for the Oahu Wedding Association meeting at Masako Formals. If you haven’t yet, you must check out Wendy’s work. Not only is she a sweet person who does amazing hair and makeup, she has also done makeup for celebrities including Carmen Electra, Ali Landry, and Michelle Rodriguez.
Shazarie, Nick and the whole group were picked up by two limos and taken to Waialae Beach Park for their ceremony which was officiated by Shazarie’s father.
