I photographed Jess and Kiama’s wedding in San Diego, California in May of this year. It was a small, intimate wedding with their family and close friends. They rented a beautiful house overlooking a gorgeous lagoon. It was a cool, overcast day which I wasn’t expecting for that part of California. I always thought it was sunny year round! Apparently May in San Diego is referred to as “May gray.” It was still beautiful and was perfect for their wedding celebration.
After their wedding, they flew to Kauai for their honeymoon. They decided to book an adventure session to celebrate while they were there. I’m always excited to hop over to Kauai for weddings, elopements, and engagement sessions. It’s definitely my other favorite island, after Maui of course. ;) Kauai is such a magical island filled with hidden gems and epic overlooks that are a photographer’s dream.
The day of our shoot the weather was a little crazy, which can be common for Kauai. It’s actually one of the rainiest places on earth, with an average rainfall of 400 inches annually at Mount Waialeale. That’s a lot of rain! We had originally planned to shoot at Kalalau Lookout but it was dumping rain, so we decided to explore Waimea Canyon. It ended up being the perfect location. The light was gorgeous and we had this spot all to ourselves. I love it when my clients can enjoy these special places in solitude. Thank you so much Jess and Kiama for a fun adventure on Kauai! Can’t wait to come visit you in New York City some day. :)
