BY HAWAI'I ADVENTURE PHOTOGRAPHER TEAM KELSI & PATRICK
Alex and Sarah were making a honeymoon tour of the Hawaiian islands after recently eloping in Chicago. When they decided that they wanted to do a multi-location adventure with us on Oahu, we had plenty of location options for them to choose from. For the laid-back tropical vibe, we decided on Secret Beach for some playful fun in the sand. The beauty of Secret Beach is that we have so many fun angles to play with-- from the calm and clear bay waters to the dock with mountainous surroundings, and the dense canopy of palm and hau trees. Our lovers spent some time frolicking on the dock, dancing, laughing, and showing off some of that wedding ring bling! With light skies, we were able to also fly the drone to get some amazing aerial shots (perhaps one of my all-time favorites, with the canoes coming from the shadows).
For their second location, we chose a completely different location-- the cliffs of Makapuʻu-- to showcase the dramatic and rugged coastline that many people may not immediately associate with Hawaii. These beautiful rocky drop-offs overlook the entire southeastern coast of Oahu and make a picture-perfect backdrop from pretty much any angle! Alex and Sarah had no problem running around the jagged rocks, even though the wind was howling up from the ocean. With more freedom to explore multiple locations, we absolutely love taking our couples on a deep-dive photographic adventure around the islands, for memories that will last a lifetime! This adventure photoshoot on Oahu is what dreams are made of.
