Destination Wedding in Hawaii.
A picture perfect day with a picture perfect couple.
Even though I had shot their engagement photos, I had a vision and I wanted to do something very special and "DIFFERENT."
Consequently, I decided to purchase an AquaTech™ water proof casing/housing for my brand new Canon™ 5D Mark III, and shoot a "concept" engagement session, also by the Manhattan Beach Pier, but this time a little "different," this time IN THE water, and this time at sunrise.
In the photo above, you can see that the sun is just about to overwhelm the photo and blow out the whole picture. At the same time, a mysterious fog rolled in, creating a hazy, dream-like look that almost clouded the pier. I admit it was scary for a second being enveloped by fog, near a pier with crusty and sharp barnacles on the pilings.
Anneka and Jerry were as willing and enthusiastic about their engagement photo session as I was and this helped because you can see their passion in their expression that radiates throughout their photos. Great job Anneka and Jerry.
When they asked me if I would like to shoot their wedding, a "destination" wedding in Hilo, Hawaii no less, I was beyond honored and privileged to be commissioned to photograph their BIG Day.
