Elsa and Phil Hawaii destination wedding

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It Back in June, I was lucky enough to travel to Hawaii for a combination vacation and destination wedding. I've always thought it would be so fun to photograph a wedding in Hawaii, even though I really don't do weddings. This was a family gathering, so it was extra nice!
The venue was the Sunset Ranch, up in the hills of the beautiful north shore of Oahu. Of course it was a hot and humid day, even up in the mountains....but everything was so beautiful. The views, the natural plants and trees, and the set up and gorgeous colors Elsa choose.
It was a small intimate gathering, and the family and friends came from Washington and New Zealand.

Here's just a small selection from the beautiful day.....

Elsa and Phil

Best Blogger Tips
Pin It If you're not a wedding photographer, but extended family is having a small destination wedding in Hawaii...do you jump at the chance to say "I'll photograph it!"
That's exactly what I did, when my son in law's sister announced her wedding would be in Hawaii. What a great excuse for a vacation, right? The wedding was planned to be at the Sunset Ranch on Oahu, but our trip would be extended to Kauai for another week afterwards. The ranch is an exclusive estate on the north shore of Oahu with beautiful ocean and mountain views. But we'll get to the ranch in the next post.

This blog post is about the day before the wedding. I met up with Elsa and Phil on the beach near where they were staying for some beach and sunset shots. Earlier in the day it absolutely poured down rain, but luckily it cleared up in time for the early evening.
Plus, I had just purchased a Sigma 15mm fisheye lens, and was eager to give it a try before the wedding the next day.  Here's a few from that afternoon, some taken with the fisheye.
