“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. That’s what I hope to give you forever.”

— The Notebook

I thought of this quote as I was preparing Kate and Ryan’s Oahu engagement session post! As long as I have been photographing couples, it’s always nice when you a see a couple whose love refreshes your soul! Kate and Ryan were that couple!oahu engagement photographer

Kate contacted me a few months ago as she was planning her summer wedding with Ryan at Paradise Cove! I was so happy when we connected and she mentioned that she wanted to get engagement photos done as well!

Since I was still new to Hawaii, I went out and looked for the perfect beach for their photos, and found it!

It was a beautiful night for their engagement photos!

The weather was perfect, the water was warm, and all I needed was this gorgeous couple in front of my camera! beach engagement session oahu

Their engagement session went by so fast! It didn’t feel like we were working at all! Kate and Ryan’s natural connection really was what I was capturing! At one point, as we were sitting on the rocks, we saw several sea turtles in the water! We all took a minute to watch them and marvel in the awe that is Hawaii! Nimitz beach

I knew what I wanted for the final shot of the night, and luckily for my, my clients trust me! I told them that we would get a little bit wet, and they didn’t mind!! As this was the final shot, I saw it was totally worth it!!hawaii engagement photographer

I am so excited to document your wedding tonight at Paradise Cove Kate and Ryan! If it’s anything like your stunning engagement session, we are all in for an amazing treat!
