Oahu Waterfall Elopement Inspiration with Belen and Matt
When you think of Hawaii, what is the first thing that comes to mind? For some it’s the beach, for others it’s a waterfall tucked away in a lush green mountain. When it comes to elopement locations, I have photographed more waterfall elopements on Maui than I have on Oahu! So I decided that needed to change. I immediately put a styled shoot into action for inspiration. I only work with real couples for styled shoots because I love photographing connections between two people. Belen and Matt had so much chemistry! Seriously, our florist’s tagalong thought it was a real elopement. It might as well have been, they were so adorable together.
For all my brides worried about sweat and messy hair on their wedding day, take a look at Belen! She looked so stunning after the hike. I consider this location to be a relatively easy adventure. It only takes about 20 minutes to get to the falls and there are no crazy inclines. There’s a spot across from the falls that is so perfect for an intimate ceremony, it’s like it’s meant to be for one! This hike is relatively unknown, so we only saw two other people the entire time we were out there. I enlisted the help of my north shore dream team vendors for hair and make up and florals, and they knocked it out of the park as always!
If you’re thinking of having your own Oahu waterfall elopement, here’s some inspiration for you! And if you need a guide and photog for the waterfall… you know who to contact! 😉
