This elopement was a beautiful, intimate ceremony on a cliff right above crashing waves. As the sun was rising in O’ahu, Hawaii, this sweet couple said their I Do’s.
The story behind these pictures is actually quite an adventure! I got called one Thursday night around 8PM (from The Carrasquillos: Wedding and Elopement Photography) asking if I could sub in for her second photographer that couldn’t make it, and I jumped on board! I threw some stuff in a suitcase, grabbed my gear, and headed for the airport only a few hours later.
Alexis and Bryce had so much trust in us that they let us surprise them with the location! We drove them through a rich neighborhood, and then we all hiked down a small path in the pitch dark around 5 AM. Bryce even *claimed* to see a shark 😉 But, wow, it was so worth it! We made it to this cliff right before the sun started going up, and it looked like a scene straight out of a Nicholas Sparks’ based movie.
Here’s a peak of some of my favorites! We were all safe and sound for these pictures and the weather was calm and beautiful. We were able to work with different camera angles to make it look like they were closer to the edge than they really were for an awesome effect!
