Gorgeous sunset wedding photo from Waikiki Beach – Daily Shot of Love

When the world gives you a gorgeous bright sunset in paradise and you have a lovely bride and groom basking in the love on their wedding day,  you get a photo we just can’t keep to ourselves.

Bride and Groom sunset photo on wedding in Waikiki Hawaii

This stunning duo had a beach wedding ceremony with their closest loved ones followed by an intimate dinner reception at Sarento’s at the Top of the Ilikai in Waikiki.  Sarento’s is steps off of Waikiki beach at the far end by Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Boat Harbor.  Sitting on the top floor of the Ilikai Hotel, restaurant goers dine on Italian food while taking in the romantic ambiance and scenic ocean views. It’s no wonder this newly wed couple chose this intimate setting to celebrate with their guests.

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!

Oahu Wedding Photographer – Waikiki Wedding

We first met Rachael and Reginald a few months before their Oahu wedding when we photographed their engagement  portraits at the JW Marriot Ihilani Resort and Spa in Ko’olina, Hawaii.  We had a great time getting to know this couple and were so happy to be able to photograph their destination wedding.

The bride and groom had a Hawaii garden wedding at Haiku Gardens in Kaneohe in their Tahitian Chapel.  Rachael wore a gorgeous satin wedding dress with rouching and emboidery on the bodice and a mermaid train with covered buttons on the back.  Red satin high heels added a pop of color to her champagne colored gown. This elegant look was complimented by a deep red rose hair clip in her hair.  She looked absolutely radiant.  Reginald looked handsome in his tan colored suit and a complimenting dark red necktie.
