Maui, Hawaii

When you love your wedding dress SO MUCH that you take it on your honeymoon!!! :)
Christina’s dress was made and designed by Made with Love Bridal. They are an Austrian based company and work with clients worldwide. I’m obsessed with how comfortable this dress is for Christina and it fits her like a glove. And she literally rolled it up in a suitcase and look at how great it looks on her! Just amazing. I love this girl so much.

you are like a cloud
and your form
and color
are the way
I love them.”

Oahu, Hawaii

I feel most alive when I travel. This is my fourth time to the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
I love this little spot on the North Shore…

Go measure the heavens with your span;
go weigh the mountains in the scales;
go take the ocean’s water and calculate each drop;
go count the sand upon the sea’s wide shore;
and when you have accomplished all of this,
then you can tell how much He loves you!
He has loved you long.
He has loved you well.
He will love you forever.

I was blessed enough to join Sherri, Bert, Bella, Chloe, and Christian in this majestic place in Oahu, Hawaii. So blessed that I stuffed my eyes with all this beauty…even if it was only for a few hours.

This was the last photo before I fell, my right foot hit a rock (dislocated my toe), and my camera swam in the ocean and experienced major water damage! I wish I had more time to go out in the water but I had to be thankful for the time I had. RIP my beloved Canon 5D Markii.

Being with Christian and Chloe in Hawaii is such a dream! Having fun with them and taking photos of them is therapeutic for my momma’s heart. Love these two so much and they are definitely a match made in heaven!
