Moli’i Gardens Kualoa Ranch | The Pestano’s

This Moli’i Gardens Wedding at Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii was a day to remember. The day started with a first look in the lush green gardens. Next they celebrated their love at the Moli’i Gardens ceremony site surronded by mountains and greenery. The night ended with an epic party and all the guests on the dance floor!


A shot list is always good if you need to make sure all of the big & crucial moments are taken care of and checked off the list. Me and my team already have a specific list and always go by that but if there’s anything specific shots our couples have in mind we always go by that and make sure it’s incorporated into the day.

Just in case you need a list to send to your photographer I’ve included an example that you can provide your photographer with and tailor to your needs and wants for the big day:
