Adam and Amy came from their home in New Zealand to the Big Island of Hawai'i for their very special destination wedding at the Hokukano Bayhouse at Keauhou Bay. Adam's family all made trip from NZ to Kona for the big event, and Amy's from the cold winter of Minnesota. They were so lovely and I had a great time getting to know this beautiful couple and all of their loved ones. Vintage and Lace teamed up with Passion Flowers by Nalani made for a flawless evening and gorgeous styling, which I look forward to sharing in a future post. For now, I wish Amy and Adam all the best, and lots of Aloha!

As yesterday's news unfolded about the Supreme Court taking on the ruling on gay marriage, I was photographing these two at the Mauna Lani for their Hawaii destination wedding. Taelor and Niki have been together for ten years and are more in love than ever. I was so excited to hear the developments and am confident the court will move forward towards progress. Here's to getting married in Hawaii and staying married in all fifty states! Happy weekend, everyone.
We photographed Josh and Melissa and their two lovely daughters at my special beach on the Big Island's Kona Coast, He'eia Bay. The entire family are amazing surfers and I look forward to saying I knew these two young athletes when... In addition to being super surfers, they are the sweetest family, always out on adventures and exploring.
Look at the light at the Holualoa Inn for John and Tracy's Hawaii destination wedding! A very special venue for a different feel of the Big Island's beauty in stunning Holualoa and this sweet couple had the most beautiful sunset for their outdoor ceremony. Happy Holidays to all from Bikini Birdie Photography.
Hannah and David had the most romantic Hawaii wedding at the Four Seasons Hualalai on the Kona Coast of the Big Island. Their elegant ceremony on the beach was the perfect way to tie the knot away from the crowds of home. The sky the evening of their wedding was the wildest pink color and made for the perfect backdrop to their special day. Congratulations to Hannah and David!
Most of the Big Island of Hawai'i weddings I have photographed so far on the beach have been on the island's Kona Coast so I was thrilled to get the opportunity to head to the island's East side to photograph a destination wedding at Kehena Beach. W and D had a small ceremony only with their closest friends and then headed to The Bali House for the celebration. The rugged coastline of lower Puna provided an unbelievable backdrop to their wedding.
This fun group got together for a full family vacation on the Kona Coast of the Big Island this past summer. The entire family had a great sense of humor which made things run really smoothly here at Old Airport Beach Park.... and look at all these gorgeous kids. I mean, come on! I love the idea of all the cousins getting to vacation together. What amazing memories they will have from this time. Aloha Friday, everybody.
Geoff and Mei had a sweet destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii at the lovely Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the Kona coast. Congratulations to Geoff and Mei!
I have known Laura since she and I became mothers only ten days apart. She and her partner, Tomás, headed out into the sun drenched Mediterranean coast with me this past summer for a sweet family session with their adorable daughter Emma.
