Planning a destination wedding in Hawaii can be hard – you may not get to taste your cake beforehand or have a hair and makeup trial – but Tali and Jeff made a visit over from LA to meet their vendors and I am SO glad that they did! After Tali’s hair and makeup trial, we met at the beautiful Makapuu for their engagement photos on Oahu. I love getting to know my couples, so getting to have an engagement session before the big day is awesome! It’s also a great way to try out your look to make any tweaks before the day of. We had a ton of fun during the session, they were adorable, so in love and such a breeze to work with. I can not wait for their beautiful Kualoa Ranch wedding next year!
