Oh my goodness! I am just back from Maui and it has been SO hard to get back to work! I am loving going through the photos and checking everything out for sure but I have alot of work ahead of me. I couldn't resist...I had to share some shots from their wedding. It was so GORGEOUS! The wedding took place at an old plantation house in Maui right on the water. All the festivities took place on the green, sprawling lawn with the ocean waves lapping right there in front of us the entire time. The wedding took place at 4pm so the sun was still high in the sky but there are HUGE trees there offering some shade so we had beautiful light for the ceremony and lots of time to still take photos after up until the sun set. Sit back and relax and if you haven't been to a wedding in Maui before, let me show you what one looks like.
"M" recently got her braces off and her teeth look beautiful! We decided to meet downtown for a little color and quirk for our location. She looked amazing and blew her photo shoot out of the water! Aren't her blue eyes stunning?

Back in the spring, I got to take a trip to Hawaii to visit my college room mate who lives there. I never had a chance to blog about it because I was in full blown wedding season when I got back so I've decided when I need a little pick me up I'm just going to post a few photos from my trip! Holly was THE best tour guide you could ask for! She always had a plan for us and she kept me moving and grooving so I could see and do as much as I could while I was there. This particular day, she took me to the North Shore and there were lots of clouds and some rain at a couple of the beaches that we went to so she took me to this little river where we could do stand up paddle boarding. It was amazing! When we paddled up the river, we saw 10 HUGE sea turtles sunbathing on a tiny beach. She said she had never seen that before which was way cool. This was my first paddle boarding experience and what a way for a first...in Hawaii! I do think I was gripping my board with my toes too much (hanging on for dear life) because on our way back down the river I went into full blown foot cramp mode and had to sit on my board and massage all my toes and arch until it finally stopped. This getting old stuff really sucks! :) The river actually feeds into the open water with a huge current that will sweep you to the left if you're not strong enough to paddle hard to the right so we opted NOT to attempt that on my first day of paddle boarding! Haha! Holly and I have had a rough few years with both of us going through long,exhaustive divorces so when I see myself in these photos I look happy. It's the beginning of a fresh start for me and this trip was one way to help bring back my smile and start to feel like I've got the world at my finger tips again.

We had so much fun at this shoot! We had a bubbly, happy teenager, a colorful location that definitely screams Austin funk and a beautiful new smile with no more braces...what more could a photographer ask for? It all came together so perfectly. Enjoy this fun little video I put together.
