I can tell you that being a Hawaii photographer definitely has it’s perks….

The beautiful beaches, perfect backdrops everywhere, pretty much year round weather, I mean, it doesn’t really get much better!

Well, the amazing people that it brings to the islands, like Jenny and Joseph. Yeah, that makes it much better!

Hawaii Photographer | Vanessa Hicks Photography

I was so excited to meet Jenny and Joseph a few days before their Hawaiian wedding at Loulu Palm this year. It’s crazy to look back on all of these images because it was literally one of the final Hawaii engagement sessions I captured before the world, and most certainly the islands shut down! Very different times!

I love being able to capture my couples engagement photos before their wedding! It gives us a chance to meet face to face, get to know each other in person, and who doesn’t want more beautiful photos of themselves and their love!

This beautiful beach is one of my absolute favorite locations on the North Shore of Hawaii, and it’s kind of hidden, making it perfect for your photos! And, it’s a beautiful location both at sunrise and sunset!

Jenny looked absolutely radiant in her white dress when she showed up, and it was only a small preview of how she looked on her wedding day! Joseph, not only handsome but couldn’t stop staring and smiling at his future wife.

Which in turn made my job of capturing their love just pretty easy for me!

It was such a beautiful night in Hawaii and I was so happy that we got these beautiful engagement photos before their wedding!

Don’t even think for a moment of traveling to Hawaii and not booking a Hawaii Photographer for yourself! It can be a couples session, a family session, really ANYTHING! Document your time on our island!
