janelle + bryson | kahana bay engagement | oahu lifestyle photographer

Let me start by just telling you all that the day we shot these photos, a big-hurricane-strength-windy-storm was about to hit Hawai’i. No big deal, but they forecasted 60 foot waves or whatever and it was cold. as. heck (for Hawai’i). Keep this in mind as you scroll through these photos and see Janelle’s hair blowing in the wind, the sun hitting the ocean and mountains and the two of them in the water. Everything was freezing. The sand, the water, the wind. Everything. And yet, they look perfect and happy and in love.

If you recognize these faces, it’s because they were the very first couple that I shot going into this business last year. Ever since then, I had been anticipating shooting their actual engagement photos. So here they are in all their glory!
