It’s time for Part 2 of our Styled Engagement Shoot! This week I posted Part 1 of the shoot held at Dillingham Ranch, and it was absolutely MAGICAL. But today, I get to share even more magic!! Day two was held at Loulu Palm, and it was So. Much. Fun. I feel SO blessed to have been a part of this incredible team and to have witnessed their talents in action! Thank you so much to everyone that played a part in making this happen! You guys are incredible and I couldn’t have done it without you!
First of all, I have to rave about my co-planner and second photographer Holly Crenshaw with Holly Anne Photography. She is quite literally an ANGEL. She is so incredibly talented and SO much fun to be around. Holly, I can’t thank you enough for being my go-to fellow photographer and best friend out here in Hawaii. You are truly a rare find in this crazy world! In addition, we also had the HUGE honor of having sweet Shaneika with Storylite Studios work her film magic! I am in such awe watching videographers work. It’s like a glimpse into a different world for me! Shaneika, you are the sweetest thing and I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you! I cannot wait for everyone to see the work you two did on this project!
Loulu Palm captures the beauty of Hawaii perfectly. The venue is tucked between towering mountains on one side and the beautiful, vast ocean on the other. As you walk through the property you’re surrounded by lush palm trees, greenery, and tropical flora. Then you can take a stroll across the lawn, passed fire pits and hammocks, and out onto the beach to watch a dazzling North Shore sunset. The laid-back, bohemian vibe of this place simply makes you feel as if you could stay forever. Nicki, I cannot thank you enough for allowing us to witness the beauty of your venue. You were so sweet to work with us, and I was so privileged to collaborate!
MoanaCheryll with MoanaCheryll Makeup & Hair Artistry is truly one of the most talented hair and makeup artists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with! Moana, thank you so much for being a part of this! The girls looked STUNNING. I’m so thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with you! And of course, we could not have pulled this off without Flower + Crown. Alana created the most perfect Haku flower crown and two stunning bouquets for our styled shoot. I swear these floral designs came right off of a Pinterest board! The blush and peach colored roses mixed with the eucalyptus leaves to form the most romantic and dreamy palette of flowers. Thank you so much, Alana! You are so sweet and so incredibly talented!
Masako Formals graciously provided a few of their bridesmaids dresses for the girls to wear, and I must say I am still obsessing over them. I had the tremendous pleasure of working with Naomi and Zoe to plan these stunning outfits. Thank you a million times for your kindness, patience, and generosity! Your dresses are so beautiful, and they looked even more beautiful on our lovely girls. And last but certainly not least, Leslie with Bijou Bridal was so amazing to lend us a few suits for our guys to wear. Those suits took the whole shoot to the next level. I’m telling you, you just can’t go wrong with a guy in a quality suit. Thank you Leslie! You were such a joy to work with!
And of course, thank you to the sweetest models on the planet for allowing me a tiny glimpse into your love stories. Capturing these memories in Hawaii for you guys brings me so much joy! You all looked like supermodels, and I am so glad I had the chance to serve you in some small way!
