Funny story- this couple actually ditched their planned & paid for reception in Temecula, CA last minute. Decided the heck with it and ELOPED in Oahu, Hawaii within 3 months of planning and did the DANG THING!!! I am OBSESSED with laid back lovers who decide last minute to elope and keep things super intimate just between them two, I am ALL FOR IT!
Priscilla & Eugene are so unique and intimate and preferred to celebrate their day with nobody chiming in or having to worry about accommodating everyone else on their big day. Also in love with the idea of not financially stressing out and throwing a big party for a bunch of people. They craved an intimate ceremony, just them two & wanted to be married already!
We immediately hopped on a phone call, chatted alll about their dreams + visions for the BIG DAY and started kicking the planning off right away! This couple trusted me completely and allowed me to help them plan their day, from the vendors, to location recommendations to timeline and all! I am so dang pumped that they allowed me to guide them & trusted me from the start!
Priscilla mentioned that they wanted it to be on another island of Hawaii, possibly considering Kauai, Maui or even Big Island! But the reason they chose to Elope on Hawaii was because they wanted me to photograph their day and knowing I was pregnant at the time I was unable to travel. It was the sweetest thing to know that they planned their day around me and was crucial to them that I was able to photograph their love story.
I IMMEDIATELY hit it off with this couple! To talking about life, adventures, and watching Priscilla ugly cry thru their entire vows- not to mention Eugene texting me a vid of Priscilla BAWLING when they received their photos. I could totally see these two as FRIENDS rather than clients! I freaking love them & they left me the sweetest review ever??!!!
“It’s like we’ve been friends for 100 years! It was super fun and we felt comfortable the whole time! Since we came to Hawaii all the way from California, I was a little concerned that we had never even been to our location, but you were always so quick to respond and even willing to help find us vendors and make our day smooth! After booking you, we felt so at ease and knew that we can trust that everything was going to go perfectly!!! During the shoot everything went PERFECT and we had SO MUCH FUN!!! We honestly wanted to hang with you more after just to hang! We definitely felt like a priority which is crazy because we know how busy you are!! Although you must have a handful of clients + projects, you truly made us feel like we were your ONLY client. Thank you for making us feel so special!!”
CONGRATS LOVERS!!!! xx
