We have our venue picked. We’ll be getting married at the beautiful Loulu Palm Estates in Haleiwa, Hawaii. That was by far the easiest decision we could make!
When Joe and I first started wedding planning, we listed our top 3 must haves. Although we weren’t too far off, I was willing to find another venue due to pricing. I have to say that as beautiful as Loulu Palm Estates was, it also came with a nice price tag. However Joe reminded me it was important to him so we signed the contract! Now, it was my turn for my top 3. I wanted amazing photography/videography. (Some would argue that photography and videography are separate things. Normally I would agree but for the sake of my sanity, I considered it a couple)
“Photography is the way of feeling, of touching and of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things longer after you’ve forgotten everything.”
I am inspired by shots that captures a moment that no one saw. I love the little glances, the smiles or the tender kisses that photography can capture. With that said, I’ve been going to so may websites to pick a photographer and videographer! Either I love someone and they are extremely expensive or they are priced right and I’m not a fan of their work. I also am completely spoiled when it comes to GREAT photography. I have so many friends/family in the industry that it made it difficult for Joe and me to agree on a budget and of course, who to hire. However THIS was important to me. What’s the point in planning a beautiful day if there’s no one amazing to capture it!
Well the hunt is over. I reach out to a friend who is now based in San Francisco to photograph my wedding. He was available and excited to be shooting in Hawaii. Thankfully he also came with referrals for me for a videographer that he works with.
Meet our photographer: David Kim
Meet our videographer: Chriz
Woohoo!! Done and done!
On to the next project 🙂
