Stormy Mountaintop Elopement on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii
We crawled our way up a very steep, very muddy hike which we dubbed “the dirty thirty”, to get to this ridge on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. The wind was incredible (*ahem…INSANE) that day, and just as we started to explore the ridge a storm rolled in off the ocean. Eric + Sena weren’t even remotely phased, threw their heads back laughing + danced to their wedding song while the rain poured down, like a steamy scene from The Notebook.
Our feet were ridiculously muddy, our hair basically became dreadlocks, but our hearts were so full and our cheeks hurt from laughing as we ran wild + danced + connected over stories of parenting + marriage, + our love of fresh Hawaiian fruit.
My favourite shoots are the ones like this were we have to put in literal sweat, battle the elements, laugh our faces off, and share heartfelt stories + quiet in between moments with tears in our eyes. What a freaking GIFT it is to capture love like this, in places like this, with incredible humans like this. Eric + Sena, I have so much love in my heart for you two + for the INCREDIBLE experience we shared at The Heart Workshop. I can’t wait to see where these next few years (+ your big upcoming move overseas!) takes you + your sweet little family! MUAH!!
The Heart Workshop (Evie + Lindsay, words won’t ever be enough to express my LOVE, admiration, and FREAKING GRATITUDE for bringing together this community + for pouring your heart + souls into mentoring me. LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU forever + can’t wait until we’re reunited again!!)
