Jayme & Russ Destination Wedding & Portrait Photographers

We first met Megan  & Evan in 2013 at the wedding of Kaitlin & Scott at the GreenSprings Inn near Ashland Oregon. They were good friends of the Bride & Groom. So when Megan contacted us in June of 2015 about the possibility of traveling to the Big Island to photograph their wedding celebration we were completely stoked!

Not only would we be working in Paradise, we would have the opportunity to see our former client/friends that would be attending their wedding as guests. So it would be like a reunion. 

We actually flew on the same plane from Seattle to Kona with Kaitlin & Scott and about 15 other wedding guests the wednesday before the Saturday Wedding celebration. 

On Thursday just about everyone (guests/Friends) that was already on island traveled to Pololu Valley to Hike down to a beautiful beach. From their people swam in the ocean and ate Fresh Mango.Later in the day we all traveled to Beach 69. For another amazing afternoon Swim and snorkel.

On Friday Megan & Evan had their "Rehearsal" in the morning and in the evening the rehearsal dinner was at Hapuna Beach. Friends had staked out a pavilion taking turns with the tough task of doing nothing but enjoying the ocean, sand, and beautiful weather. The rehearsal Dinner featured Multiple Pizza's from Cafe Il Mondo in Honokaa. We all enjoyed each others company and watching the sunset.

Saturday the wedding celebration was underway! Just view the photos and you can see how amazing the celebration was! The wedding was Expertly coordinated by Sara Kam from Jot Weddings. The Flowers were from Grace Flowers Hawaii. The Caterer was Cafe Pesto. The cake was delivered By Pineapple Bakery

On Sunday we all carpooled to Waipio Valley and squeezed into a couple of 4 wheel drive vehicles for the descent into Waipio and a day spent relaxing on the beach. Body surfing, Beach Ping Pong, and exploring the area.
