Whenever I have an opportunity to travel I try to make the most of every moment. Especially when it is somewhere as stunning as Maui, Hawaii! Needless to say I met Jenny and James a few weeks before we left through a mutual friend and I knew I wanted to photograph them from the moment Jenny told me about their love story. Not only were these two one GORGEOUS couple but their story was filled with adventure, unconditional love and a zest for living life to the fullest. A couple after my own heart.

      From their budding relationship in San Francisco, a proposal in the Grand Canyon, an elopement under a tree in Palos Verdes and a move to Maui… these two were destine for great things together. Celebrating three years of marriage this past December an anniversary session for this surf loving couple was an absolute must.

      After scouting a few places in Maui I felt Olowalu Landing would be perfect spot for their sunrise session. Olowalu had the water, the mountains, a beach and it just “felt” like you can breathe in what Maui is all about. Shot mainly in Fuji 400H and some in Ektar this session is full of sun-kissed skin tones and aloha vibes. Not to mention their adorable pup Charlie joined in on the fun as well!

      I still feel like I need to pinch myself to make sure I really shot this. This anniversary session with Jenny and James is definitely going to be one of my favorites for years to come.
