This was the first wedding shot by myself. I met Yang and Viviana as they were getting ready in the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Hotel, when I realized something odd. This wedding was only made up of 2 people! Yang and Viviana. No wedding party. No parents. No children. Just them. Sometimes we forget that marriage is about two people, not always about the extravagant decor, or venue, or reception. Even though it was only two people, their presence sure filled up the entire hall of the Central Union Church. Spectacular! Enjoy their teaser trailer reel.

11/11/11, Leanne and Joe started their new life as a new wife and husband, and mom and dad for their adorable 4 kids plus a baby they are about to welcome to this world. This was my first time to take wedding photos for a mom-to-be, and I remember when I asked Leanne to adore her bump for a bride's shot, she showed me the sweetest smile in the world to her baby. The most impressive thing about Leanne was that her eyes were so sparkly and I could tell how excited she was starting a new life. I also enjoyed capturing different faces of the groom Joe - starting from his tough-guy fighting pose with his best man, sweet smiles when he was with Leanne, tears at the ceremony, being a very funny speaker at the reception… The Isle Media team really enjoyed working with them, and wishes for the best happiness for the newly weds!
p.s., Isle Media was referred to work at this wedding from our former clients, Shandell and Stacy. Both of them were at the wedding for Leanne and Joe, and it was very nice to see them there! Thank you Shandelle and Stacy for choosing to recommend Isle Media!

One of the reasons why I love working as a photographer in Hawaii is that I can experience different cultures. I heard in Hawaii, people celebrate baby's first birthday very big, and it is called "Keiki" party! In Japanese, "Keiki" means "cake" so I thought it was a perfect double meaning since in Hawaiian, Keiki means "kids".
November 19 Saturday, Jaden had his first birthday cerebrated by his lovely parents, Sunshine and Tio, and lots of friends and families. Throughout the day, I could see how much Sunshine and Tio love their special one. Their smiles were so charming, and they made me want to become a parent like them! I hope in the future, Jaden will see these photos and feel that he is truly loved by his parents and everybody around him.

Normally, when we receive inquiries from our clients, it's the bride that is calling to ask all the big questions and making all the big decisions, but in this case Roland made the big decision to go with us : ) (Thanks Roland!) Roland asked that we pick an upbeat song, which matches their fun and light hearted personalities. Roland introduced his wife Rachelle and I thought, oh that's cute- matching names! However, on the day of their wedding, Roland and Rachelle became "RORO" and "RAERAE" which is what all of their friends and family called them the entire night. Enjoy this fun mix to a not so conventional wedding song "Feel So Close" by Calvin Harris. : )
