Weddings & Engagement
April 25, 2017

huy + bin are foodies, adventure seekers + kids at heart. they traveled with their closest friends and family to celebrate their wedding on on island.

cool, right?


i first officially met these two when i shot huy’s proposal back in los angeles at the getty museum after completion of a harry potter scavenger hunt.

destinations are fun for many reasons, one of which being you are on vacation in an awesome place. we utilized this and headed up to the north shore on oahu to let loose and take some fun photos along the shore line, maybe see some turtles (which we missed this time) and then head up to visit the beautiful grounds at waimea canyon before getting an awesome lunch at one of the famous food trucks on the way back down to honolulu. they had grilled banana bread and all the veggies were made on the grounds. i mean….

this was fun for several reasons, here are several photos as proof 🙂
