Joy and Craig visited Oahu Hawaii with some of their family all the way from Chicago! They wanted to capture an adventurous hike down to the tidepools and I of course was more than down to go on an adventure with these two!!! This was by far one of my favorite sessions! We got to hike down to the pools, jumped in and swam and watched the sunset go down I literally couldn’t ask for anything more perfect!! I live for sessions filled with hiking, adventuring, traveling and more, this is exactly where I thrive!
Backstory on how Joy & Craig first met: they met thru mutual friends at a music festival and hung out from time to time. Joy had just recently got out of a relationship and wasn’t looking for anything serious and ghosted him. They met up again months later at a friends party and instantly missed each other and since then have been with each other!
Joy & Craig have the most sweetest love for one another and I am so honored to have captured their story real & raw! They allowed me to capture them after hiking and being completely sweaty, to jumping in the water and holding one another tight! I cannot get over this adventurous session and is one of my FAVS!!! Not to mention Joy left me the SWEETEST review after recieving her images!!!!!
