This styled engagement shoot at Dillingham Ranch was a Dream. Come. True. After months of planning, we finally pulled it off. And there’s absolutely no way I could have done it without the most INCREDIBLE team. I cannot say enough amazing things about these talented people!! I am so blessed and honored to have had this opportunity to work with Hawaii’s premier wedding vendors. On top of their heaps and heaps of talent, they couldn’t be sweeter!

First and foremost, I definitely couldn’t have pulled this thing off without my co-planner and second photographer Holly Crenshaw with Holly Anne Photography. Holly, you are an absolute ANGEL. Seriously. Where do you hide your wings? I had so much fun planning with you and even more fun shooting with you. You are so incredibly talented and SO much fun to be around. Thank you for being not only a fellow photographer/business owner that actually gets me. But also, a best friend out here in the middle of the Pacific. You are a true gem sweet girl! I can’t wait for everyone to see the work you did on this project as well!

Dillingham Ranch is not only the most stunning place on Oahu, but the most stunning wedding venue in Hawaii. From the second you drive onto the property, you’re in awe of your surroundings. You catch a breath of fresh air that’s surprisingly hard to find on Oahu as a peaceful quietness wraps around you. The rugged and wild, yet beautiful land reminded me somewhat of my home in Texas. Majestic wildlife, gorgeous trees, and green pastures lined with wooden fences made it look like a country postcard. Siri was so incredible for working with us and allowing us to use her gorgeous ranch as a backdrop for our photos. I can’t thank you enough, Siri!

Kate and Bre with Medicine of Beauty are a truly powerful team. Kate’s talent at makeup and Breana’s skills with hairstyling combine to make a remarkable masterpiece. The girls all looked like supermodels. And I could not get enough of how sweet and fun these two were. Kate and Breana, thank you so much for being a part of this! I’m so honored to have had the chance to work with them. As well as Alana with Flower + Crown! These floral designs were to die for! Alana created the most perfect Haku flower crown and two stunning bouquets for our styled shoot. The blush and peach colored roses mixed with the eucalyptus leaves to form the most romantic and dreamy palette of flowers. Thank you so much, Alana! You are the sweetest and most talented florist on this island!

Now let’s talk about these outfits… I cannot get enough of how gorgeous our models looked. Masako Formals graciously provided a few of their bridesmaids dresses for the girls to wear. Naomi and Zoe, I could not have pulled this shoot off without you! Thank you a million times for your kindness, patience, and generosity! Your dresses are so beautiful, and they looked even more beautiful on our stunning girls. And of course, the guys looked stunning as well! Leslie with Bijou Bridal was the most precious thing for lending a few suits for our guys to wear. I’m telling you, you just can’t go wrong with a guy in a nice suit. Thank you Leslie! Your shop is beautiful and your suits looked as if they belonged on these guys! You were so much fun to work with, and I am so grateful to you.
