Kauai St. Regis Princeville Destination Wedding – Hawaii Wedding Photography


People often ask if we are available to photograph weddings on any of the Hawaiian islands. The answer is absolutely!  As L’amour Photography and Video is an Oahu based wedding photography and video company we serve mainly Oahu wedding.  So when we are asked to photograph weddings on Maui, Kauai, or the Big Island we are always excited to spread our wings and fly on over.  This Kauai wedding was absolutely gorgeous.

This lovely couple’s wedding rehearsal was held on a fun filled catamaran sunset dinner cruise. The bride and groom, along with all of their friends and family sailed along the NaPali Coast of Kauai while sipping cocktails and having dinner.  We were lucky enough to get a gorgeous rainbow for a good amount of time.  A pod of dolphins followed alongside the boat.  This magical night ended with a great view of the Kauai sunset .Kauai Wedding Photography

The setting for this Hawaii wedding was the Kauai wedding venue, the St. Regis Princeville.  The St.Regis Princeville is located on the North Shore of Kauai overlooking the famous Hanalei Bay.  Stepping into the lobby for the first time, guest are met with a mix of  Hawaiian and sophisticated classic decor with wood accents and tropical flowers.  The cascading glass bulb chandeliers are such a striking feature,  we found ourselves admiring them more than just once.  Conde Nast found  was also rather impressed with this spectacular resort and listed the St. Regis on it’s 2011 Gold List among the world’s finest properties.

The bride started her Hawaii wedding day getting her hair and makeup done at the St. Regis’ Halele’a Spa then headed up to her bridal suite to slip on her lace and tulle wedding dress and sweet mint green wedding shoes.

Hawaii Bride holds succulent bouquet and wedding rings Green and white orchids were accompanied by beautiful succulents in this tropical wedding bouquet with a modern twist.  We loved the succulents so much and thought they would make a perfect backdrop for the wedding ring photos. The bridesmaids wore complimentary soft mint green sheath dresses with a coral colored  sash.

This adventurous couple wanted to incorporate their love of the ocean in their photo session by doing some underwater photos.  We were lucky to find an area that was fairly sheltered from the waves for this session and found some pretty clear blue water!

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!

L’Amour Photography – St Maarten Sneak Peek – Daily Shot of Love

We have just returned from shooting a fun filled wedding on the beautiful Caribbean island of St Maarten and couldn’t wait to share a sneak peek with you all!  This tiny island is known for its crystal clear teal waters, friendly people, wonderful food and the beachfront St Maarten Airport (SXM) landing strip.  As the sun was setting on this bride and grooms destination wedding, we were lucky enough to be graced with the presence of an incoming plane!  With the roar of jet engines preparing for take off and planes flying right over our heads, this was definitely the most thrilling sunset shoot we have ever done.

This Hawaii Wedding Ceremony was held on a beautiful yacht as the guests toured the waters right outside of Waikiki Beach on Oahu.   Diamond Head was a great backdrop for this ceremony at sea as the bride and groom exchanged vows and sealed them with a kiss.  Thank goodness for small waves that day. As we found out, it is extra challenging to photograph a wedding ceremony while the venue is rocking!
