I adore Greg + Shelby. One of the first things they told me was that they wanted a unique engagement session. Sold. They were so fun getting to know and hanging out with on the wedding day. I’ve said it before but I’m a total sucker for grooms that shed tears and Greg did not disappoint!
I already posted one part of their engagement session – the holi powder one! Before we got colored-up we took some photos at the rustic Bernardo Winery in Rancho Bernardo! It was packed that day but we were able to find a few hidden spots lacking people. Plus including a bottle of wine in the shoot is always a good time!
I’m so excited share Debi + Jeff’s wedding photos from the gorgeous Olowalu Plantation House in Maui! I always get to know the families a little better with destination weddings and it was no different with these families! Jeff + Debi are so much fun to hang out with. And laid back, a perfect attitude for Maui! Fun fact: I got my first ever bee sting during bridal party portraits. On my toe! A very nice EMT masquerading as a groomsmen took good care of me and cleaned/bandaged me up!

Debi + Jeff opted to do their trash the dress photos prior to the wedding – Debi had a different dress of course! These two were up for any ideas I had. Abandoned old building? Sure! Climb on these slippery rocks? Ok! Jump in this water with all these rocks? No problem? We found out how hard it was to get in and out of a rocky beach with a wedding dress! We ended the evening jumping in to the hotel pool for some more underwater kissing!
