There's a place on the Big Island of Hawaii where magic happens every day. On the morning we visited Waipi'o with Keana and Dylan, it was as if the island was bursting with life in celebration of this couple's union. For Keana and Dylan this is their sanctuary, their sacred place. We hope that the Spirit of Aloha and Ohana were both captured in this truly epic, romantic, and intimate story about love and life in Hawaii.

There’s a place on the Big Island of Hawaii where magic happens every day. On the morning we visited Waipi'o with Keana and Dylan, it was as if the island was bursting with life in celebration of this couple's union. Flocks of white birds only seen at daybreak rose into the sky, the river was still as glass, and the black sand beach shimmered in the sun. For Keana and Dylan this is their sanctuary, their sacred place. The magic of the valley, created by the Spirit of Aloha, made this love-story film one of a kind. We're so glad Keana and Dylan introduced us to their island, their way of life, and their love together as a couple and ohana (family). We hope that the Spirit of Aloha and Ohana were both captured in this truly epic, romantic, and intimate story about love and life in Hawaii.

When Cheyenne and Angel met in high-school their relationship helped them overcome many personal and family challenges. Strengthen by their faith and love for one another, they've grown through it all. Now, on the banks of the Salt River, they are joined by their family members (and pictures of those passed) to celebrate their love and union.

HAVE FAITH

19, crazy-in-love, and quad bikes. It’s the perfect recipe for the ultimate, adventure bridal shoot. Throw in the setting sun and miles of endless sand and the romance level just shot up to a million. When Morgan and Rustin were deciding on where to shoot their bridals, they knew that they wanted some place that authentically expressed their love together. Since they grew up riding the dunes with their families, doing a shoot at Glamis was an obvious (and totally epic) decision.

When Jordan and Matt entrusted us with their bridal elopement in Sedona, we knew that we had to take them to one of our favorite out-of-the-way spots. Both Jordan and Matt couldn’t keep their hands (or lips) off each other—which we’re totally fine with, btw!

When Jordan and Matt entrusted us with their bridal elopement in Sedona, we knew that we had to take them to one of our favorite out-of-the-way spots. While a popular location for hikers to visit a vortex, it is one of Sedona’s lesser known places for bridal shoots. We didn’t get the golden light we were hoping for, but the super moody clouds made for a really cool environment. Jordan’s boho dress and hat were killer and Matt’s smile was infectious. Both Jordan and Matt couldn’t keep their hands (or lips) off each other—which we’re totally find with! And while a few meditating hikers were probably distracted by the exuberance of a young couple in love (sorry guys!), we had the place to ourselves. Throw in some sweeping drone shots and it was a perfect place to elope, love, and laugh.

Arriving at Joshua Tree after the 5-hour drive from Phoenix, we learned that our couple had been delayed, which left us only an hour of daylight to record their vows and get all the shots. This meant that we couldn't use the original location and had to find an alternate place if we were going to make this shoot happen before dark. Scouting ahead we quickly chose a new spot closer to the park entrance. Despite the changes, Mateos and Natalie were unfazed. They put their fancy duds on and we started shooting.



With the setting sun the air began to cool. The breeze made the bride’s dress and hair flow in a soft, rhythmic cadence. Every moment between Mateos and Natalie carried a deep sense that they were all that mattered at that moment. The cameras rolled but they were oblivious to us, caught up in their love as they shared their promises with each other. It was a magical shoot. We were privileged just to be a part of it.

make. you. mine.

Overlooking Lake Powell in southern Utah, Sharon and Mason began their day-long adventure elopement greeting the sun together. Their next location was a secret slot canyon. At sunset they climbed to the top of a butte in Sedona for their secluded ceremony at sunset.
