What an AMAZING wedding Joy and Gil had. You may remember their beautiful faces from our engagement shoot back in January. If you didn't see it, check them out HERE. I just love to do engagement sessions before the big day because I really get a feel for the couple and get to know them. I connected with them right away during our e-shoot and just like our first photo session, on their wedding day, I could see how completely happy and in love they were with each other. They are both just the sweetest, most down to earth people. Joy put a lot of thought and energy into all of the incredibly beautiful details and it really showed. Their friends and family were all such a fun bunch of people and had a great time celebrating the couple's happiness. Joy and Gil, I cannot thank you enough for choosing me as your photographer. It was such a pleasure to photograph your happiness! We are so happy for you guys! A big thanks to Kim for coming to Oahu for the weekend and helping me on a couple of fabulous weddings.
Make sure to check out the slideshow at the end of the post highlighting the day and all the details :)
Oh, a little side note, most of the closeup portraits were taken with the canon 85 1.2 lens pretty much wide open. I rented it for the weekend and was sad to have to return it. What an awesome lens - really love it, would love to own it in the near future. If you're a photographer who owns this or the 50 1.2 - will you leave a comment with your thoughts on either of the lenses. Thanks :)
I love this next shot Kim took:
