What could be more nerve-racking then being asked to shoot a wedding for one of my closest friends!?? ....being extremely sick on the day of! Totally was not prepared for that! Good thing Mark Sebastian was there as the 2nd photographer and with the help of Sean Park setting up and lugging my equipment around - I thankfully made it through the day!
But then again...the weather was perfect, views of Ko'Olina was breath-taking, details were stunning, and of course Jello & Melissa were picture perfect! What could possibly go wrong? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! Everything was on point!
This Sunday would be their 3 month wedding anniversary...I asked Melissa if she remembers her wedding day...she can only remember glimpse of it. So hopefully this will take us all back to their awesome day!
Please enjoy some previews of Angelo and Melissa's wedding in Hawaii! Long post!
Jello+Melissa!!!! Love you guys! -Q+K
And of course...shout out to Kolby of Aria studios for making our jaws drop during the reception with this kick-ass SDE!
Several weeks ago I was invited by good friends Jon and Joanne of Encarnacion photography to attend Tanja Lippert and Tia Reagan for a 5 on 2 TnT Dynamite 2-day workshop. It was much different from any other workshop I've taken. It was great to actually have someone behind you telling you what you're doing/saying wrong! We were tasked to direct the models while we were directed by TnT. On top of that, we were critique by the lovely models on what they felt and how we can improve.
My mind was blown away! I learned so many tips and tricks that I couldn't even jot down fast enough on my iphone! Jon and I had light bulbs going off all day in our heads. HA!
Tanja and Tia Rocked ROCKED my socks AND my boxers off!!!!!! DooMo ARIGATO x 10^1000000000!!!!
Special thanks to Jon and Joanne! And shouts out to Kira of Kira Lauren Photography and Noreen! It was great sharing ideas and working with you ya'lls! Woot!
Here's a couple shots and behind the scenes shots that I manage to grab while my brain was absorbing awesome sauce from everyone. =)
