Day After session

Gina + Aaron {Day After Wedding Trash the dress session at Nakalele Point}

On Maui, the Road to Hana is a popular drive and for good reason. However, Kahekili Highway (Hawaii State Highway 340) is a road less traveled that also provides lovely scenery and challenging driving conditions. The road goes around the rugged northern tip of Maui from Kapalua to Wailuku. Although it’s paved, the road features narrow passages around blind hairpin turns where there are rocks on one side and a sheer drop off a cliff (often with no guardrail) on the other side. Simply put, it’s not for the faint of heart or nervous driver, but it is worth it!

One of the biggest reasons to drive Kahekili Highway is to visit Nakalele Point, best known for the blowhole that shoots seawater up to 100 feet in the air. There is nothing like getting sprayed by water that brings out your inner kid. Having just enjoyed their delightful Maui destination wedding and now on their honeymoon, Gina and Aaron were the happiest people in the world anyways. Seeing them in this natural atmosphere amplified their playful spirits even more. 

Lisa + Matt {Day After Wedding Hawaii Love Session at Ko Olina Beach, Oahu}

There's something magical that happens when a couple lets you into their world. I feel a bit like a spy who is being shown a very special secret, witnessing the emotion on their faces and the way they share their own love language. This magic happens most frequently when the couple is relaxed without a care in the world except enjoying each other's company, and Day After sessions are filled with these amazing moments.

Of course, don't get me wrong, the wedding day is spectacular in its own extraordinary way, but there is usually so much going on with tons of details and memories to document. We also have to be aware of a timeline and I would always want more alone time with just the couple. 

I met up with Lisa and Matt after their Oahu wedding for more adventuring and I'm so thankful we did! Their beautiful love dazzled. Plus Lisa was able to have another gorgeous look. My hope for Lisa and Matt (and all my couples) is that wherever life's journey takes them, they will be able to look back at their photos of the fresh start of their marriage and be reminded of all the fluttery feelings and the reasons for their everlasting commitment.
