David + Melanie Puakea Ranch Wedding | Big Island Wedding Photographer

I hope you are ready for one of the most gorgeous weddings I have had the pleasure of photographing!

I was so excited when David and Melanie contacted me looking for a wedding photographer for their Big Island wedding! And was so honored when they choose me!

Their love story is so romantic too! David and Melanie met online and their first date at Griffith Observatory for a full moon viewing. David proposed in Cambria under another full moon (to a sleepy and grouchy Melanie at 4:00AM). So, it was so neat to see that they incorporated the stars in their wedding details and decor!

If you have not been to Puakea Ranch on the Big Island, you are absolutely missing out! This venue is one of my favorites on the island, surrounded by fields of grass, rows of trees, and beautiful horses on the property too!

During our sunset photos, David and Melanie walked towards the fence to take a peek at the horses! They were so friendly, until one reached out and ate David’s Maile Lei! We all got a huge laugh out of it!!!

Oh, and this couple and their friends know how to party!!!!!

Take a look at their beautiful wedding day!
