I am so excited to share this beautiful Hawaii elopement with you today!

This one is so special to me!

When I first announced that our orders had changed, and we were moving to Hawaii, within an hour I received an inquiry from the beautiful Victoria! She informed me that she and her amazing fiance’ Aaron were ditching a big wedding and heading to Oahu to get married, and wanted me to be her photographer!

Within 24 hours, I was booked!

My very first Hawaii wedding client!

Finally, the day arrived for their beautiful wedding on the North Shore of Oahu, and it was perfect! Victoria looked absolutely STUNNING in her pale pink dress, and Aaron was excited to call Victoria his wife!

After their beautiful ceremony, we took some amazing sunset images and played in the water for a bit!!

What made me tear up was Victoria’s review she left for me after her big day!

Here is a snippet of it:

“Vanessa is a great communicator and really knows just how to help you. Vanessa and I stayed in touch throughout the months before our ceremony. We emailed, we messaged, and we planned everything. It was super smooth and very convenient, especially since we are 6 hours apart in different time zones. The day of our wedding, Vanessa was early, and excited to shoot! She checked out the lighting to make sure we would have great photos, and she helped us relax. She is a highly skilled, witty, friendly, and funny person. This made our elopement so much more special. As it felt like we had a friend, and she always looked out for our best interests. If I was uncomfortable in a pose, she adapted. She tested out the water and made sure we would be safe. She knew when the tide was coming and going so we got some awesome shots of the waves in the background. She knows how to pose you in flattering positions. We had high expectations for Vanessa, and she nailed them all! We couldn’t have imagined how beautiful our photos turned out. We are so thankful for her skill and her character while we were in Hawaii. I would highly recommend Vanessa Hicks to any couple or person seeking any kind of photos. Vanessa can do it. And she will exceed your expectations! Thank you Vanessa!!”

Because really, I want my clients to feel comfortable and have a great time with me! It felt good to know that I was doing that!
