Wedding Beach Adventure

I spent the afternoon with the sweetest couple. They came to me because after many years together they decided that they would travel to Oahu for their Christmas vacation and get married. They wanted to get married on the beach but wanted to make it a little extra special. I proposed a "Wedding Beach Adventure" for them. Because their family would not be able to share in their wedding, they wanted to make sure that they had a lot of special photographs to document their day. I arranged for a limousine to pick them up from their hotel and their selected photographer, Rafael Swit for Fisheye Studio Inc., and I met them at their first location, Makapuu Beach. With the lighthouse and rabbit island in the background this was a beautiful location for their last pictures together before they became husband and wife. From there we all traveled to Waiminalo Beach Park where we were met with their officiant. The beach is uncrowded, goes on for miles and is absolutely beautiful.

After their intimate ceremony they walked along the beach and were met with applause from beach goers. It was quite special.

After their ceremony we headed back to Waikiki and the Natatorium memorial where the architecture
at sunset offers a beautiful backdrop.

Timing is everything and as they headed toward the ocean, Rafael captured this amazing shot of the sunset and the newlyweds. After a full afternoon of beaches, photography and a wedding the limousine drove them to a scenic view restaurant where reservations and a window seat were waiting for them and they enjoyed their first meal as husband and wife.
