California-June 2019-86.jpg

At the beginning of June, we headed back out to Big Sur, California (Monterey/Carmel-by-the-sea, Pebble Beach) with Devin’s mom & step dad. We showed them around to our favorite places on the coast, including where we got engaged at Limekiln State Park. We made stops at McWay Falls, Pfeiffer Beach, Point Lobos and drove through 17 mile drive. We also spent a day out on the ocean sailing. It was so fun to show them around!

We were main out there to document a beautiful destination wedding elopement. Following the wedding, we drove up through San Francisco and into Wine Country to tour around Sonoma and Napa Valley.

We visited the following wineries & loved our time there!

Sonoma:
Gracianna Winery
A. Rafanelli Winery
Amista Winery
Passalacqua Winery
Blue Rock Vineyards

Napa:
Domaine Chandon
Caymus Winery
The Terraces Winery
Reverie Winery

 

Hawaii | Maui, Oahu, Kauai | Wedding Elopement Photographer Videographer

 
Hawaii-March 2019-240.jpg

In March, Devin & I & Devin’s dad went to Hawaii for the first time. Devin & I were headed there to shoot this incredible elopement at Haiku Mill on Maui, Hawaii.

We took full advantage of going to the islands though! We started our trip on Maui where we explored Haleakala National Park, which was breathtaking and surreal. We also drove the road to Hana and hiked through the bamboo forest to a waterfall, Waimoku Falls. We got to go on a whale watching boat ride as well! We absolutely loved Maui, the incredible surf in Poipu & all of the unbelievable landscape.

After spending time on Maui, we headed over to Oahu for a couple quick days. We went to Pearl Harbor, which was a very emotional experience. (All of those photos were taken on our cell phones since we didn’t want to bring in our cameras.) The following day, we drove the coast all the way around to the North Shore to check out the scenery, surf and adorable little towns. The blue waters blew my mind!

Next & last stop on our Hawaii trip was the beautiful Kauai! We are OBSESSED with this island. It’s so quaint, filled with wild chickens & unreal landscape. We started our time here with a Blue Hawaiian Helicopter tour & zip lining with Koloa. Both were absolutely amazing & we will forever recommend them! The next day was spent on Princeville golf course, Makai. The views were out of this world! We also saw a baby albatross! Next, was my birthday where we enjoyed a slow day on the beach. Lastly, we spent a day ATV’ing with Koloa and driving through Waimea Canyon. I can’t get over how gorgeous this island is!

* Both the zip line & ATV photos were taken on our phones, so they are not a part of this blog unfortunately.

We would love to go back, and maybe even go to the Big Island! We hope to book another wedding or elopement out there in the new future!
