Ten years ago, I photographed Kristina and James’s wedding at the amazing Youngberg Hill Vineyard, outside of McMinnville, Oregon. But a few months prior to that, I photographed their engagement portraits at Baker Beach, in San Francisco. We had the Golden Gate Bridge in the background and everything; it was wonderful. (See their engagement portraits here.)
This summer, I received an email from Kristina saying that they were heading to Hawaii to celebrate their 10th anniversary. She wanted to know if I wanted to create some more portraits with them, again on a beach, in Hawaii. Of course, I was in!
So we made plans, and headed to Hawaii. On the island of Oahu, we spent an incredible afternoon together (starting with local shave ice…) photographing on a deserted beach on the North Shore, right next to a polo club (thus the horse in some of the photos). It was truly one of the more awesome portrait sessions I’ve ever done.
