Jordyn and Mathew traveled allll the way from New York to Hawaii for their Oahu elopement. We had been emailing for months, so I was SO excited to finally give these two a big hug in person! Their parents were their only guests in attendance, and this group of six was the sweetest group of people ever! Jordyn’s dad helped her with her dress throughout the evening, and everyone was giddily taking video on their phones. Makapuu is one of my favorite locations for elopements because there are a lot of little secluded areas on the beach. The views are really stunning, as you can clearly see Rabbit Island from the shore. Even though there isn’t a “sunset” on the east side, you can usually see some really pretty colors in the sky as the sun is setting behind the mountain. We adventured around the lava rock and had a ton of fun on the beach! Speaking of adventure, the newlyweds also booked a day after adventure session with me. That blog will be coming soon!
Check out Jordyn’s super sweet review for their Oahu elopement photography over on The Knot:
“One word… AMAZING!!! Seriously though, Chelsea was an absolute dream to work with and she captured our elopement perfectly. Chelsea made planning our elopement all the way from New York easy and stress free. She always quickly responded to emails and gave awesome recommendations. Once meeting Chelsea it was like we’ve known her for years. She made us feel so comfortable and that shows in all of our pictures. We are beyond obsessed with our elopement/ adventure session pictures. We honestly can’t thank her enough for capturing our special day and time in Hawaii perfectly. So if you need a photographer, look no further because Chelsea is your girl!”
