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 Photographers – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Sparkling Bride

We are totally loving this wedding photo from a recent Hawaii wedding we photographed here on Oahu. The bride was absolutely stunning in her wedding dress with the most dazzling collar.  Not only did this empire dress stun from the from but also from the back. Stay tuned to L’Amour’s Hawaii Wedding Photography and Video blog for more highlights from this wedding!  Bride in Sparkling wedding dress at her destination wedding on Oahu

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – Wedding at Haiku Gardens and Haleiwa Joe’s on Oahu

There is no denying that this gorgeous couple is absolutely in love! The excitement was definitely in the air when we arrived at Haiku Gardens in Kaneohe, Oahu to begin photographing this wedding.  This stunningly beautiful bride wore a knock-out mermaid shaped dress with rouching on the bodice and a dramatic flared train.  We love how this stylish bride wore a classic pearl necklace and an orchid in her hair to complement her striking wedding dress.  More and more of our Hawaii destination wedding brides have been styling their hair with a flower, always on the left side signifying that you are now a married woman, in lieu of a wedding veil.

This destination wedding couple had their wedding ceremony in the open air Tahitian Chapel at Haiku Gardens followed by an intimate dinner with their guests at Haleiwa Joe’s Restaurant at  the same location in Kaneohe on Oahu.  If you have never been to Haleiwa Joe’s for dinner or their popular Sunday Brunch, you really have to! Ridiculously large mai tais, the best prime rib we have ever had on Hawaii, delicious local favorites like edamame and ahi poke, and an array of locally caught fresh fish plates are just some of the reasons we always make it a point to bring our visiting friends and family members here.  Aside from the food, just checkout that view! Simply breathtaking!

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – L’Amour’s Daily Shot of Love – Lace

Intricately detailed wedding dresses are always so much fun to photograph. It is these details that won over the heart of the bride after searching all over for the perfect dress for her Hawaii Destination Wedding.  Sheer layers, beading, lace, ribbons, and broaches all add style to a wedding dress that really makes it stand out amongst others. This elegant wedding dress was a cream colored sheath dress with beading around the bodice accented by two ribbons and a simple train. The beaded edge of her fingertip length veil was the perfect match for a classically elegant destination wedding dress.

Oahu Wedding Photographer – Malia and Brian – North Shore Private Estate

Malia and Brian were joined by many of their closest family and friends at a beautiful 4 home estate on the North Shore of Oahu for a private beach ceremony under an amazingly clear blue sky. Malia and Brian used to beauty of the natural Hawaiian surroundings to decorate their intimate wedding party.  Local wild tropical flowers and leaves were used in the bouquets and to decorate the grounds. It was simply stunning and natural.

Malia wore a silky-satin light turquoise slip dress accompanied by her bridesmaids wearing bathing suits covered by coordinated sarongs.  Everyone in the wedding party, and almost all the guests, enjoyed the wedding barefoot with the soft sands of the North Shore between their toes.

Thank you to Malia and Brian for having us as your Hawaii Wedding Photographers. Mucho Mahalo!

Hawaii Wedding Photographer – Anela and Ikaika’s Big Day

I appreciate when brides step out of the limits of a traditional wedding and personalize the wedding so that it is a true reflection of their life and style.  Anela wore a beautiful orange silk sheath dress for her garden wedding. The bouquets were a complimentary mix of yellows and oranges that went perfectly with her dress. We have been seeing more and more orange in wedding color schemes lately. Even Martha Stewart digs this Anela’s color choices as seen in a recent article online.  Ikaika went with a more traditional white aloha shirt paired with his white Oakley sunglasses.  Anela’s daughter serenaded the girls as they got their hair and makeup done by singing Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds. So funny!

We were so happy to meet such a sweet couple and to be part of their big day!

Destination Wedding Do’s and Don’ts: #5 Do stay cool and hydrated

Get a little help from your friends! In Oahu its can get pretty warm and humid, especially in a wedding dress or a suit! Don’t risk overheating, ask your bridesmaids to help cool you off. Hannah’s bridesmaids used their cute fans to get the air flowing under the multi-layered wedding dress.

The Moana Surfrider provided the wedding party with an ice-cold water dispenser which became a popular hang out area during the portrait session on the Diamond Lawn.

Bridesmaids help cool the bride with fans. Ice cold water is a must have for tropical destination weddings.
