As a wedding photographer, I always consider it an honor when a bride and groom chooses us to photograph their wedding. There are literally hundreds of photographers to choose from in Vancouver alone, and so not a day goes by that I’m not thankful for all the couples that have given us the opportunity to work with them. You can, therefore, imagine the immense gratitude we felt when Ka Wai and Heywood asked us to photograph their destination wedding in Oahu-Hawaii. This was my first time in Hawaii, and it was about as beautiful as I had imagined, the perfect setting for Ka Wai and Heywood to exchange their vows in front of God and desire to be together forever. Their ceremony was held within a resplendently beautiful chapel at Ko Olina Resort on a warm and sunny afternoon. A brief window for photos with family and friends took place shortly thereafter, and to follow was their reception at Roy’s restaurant where we all enjoyed the most scrumptious sit-down-dinner I’ve ever experienced! We waited until the next day to take portraits of the bride and groom alone where we visited Iolani Palace, and finally closing the curtain with some classic sunset portraits at Waikiki Beach.
Congratulations Ka Wai and Heywood! May your future together be as bright as the sun was on the day of your wedding. Thank you again for allowing us to be a part of it.
