June 16, 2014 | Jill + James | Hawaii Elopement | Papailoa Beach
The stars aligned perfectly for Jill and James of the Lone Star State. They initially inquired about doing their engagement portraits in Hawaii but called again to say they would instead be getting married. They chose Papailoa Beach on the North Shore of Oahu as the location for their Hawaii elopement. On their special day, Jill and James were accompanied by a couple who were their good friends. Before the ceremony, James connected with his brother via video chat on his phone so their relatives back home in Texas could watch the ceremony live. Without a tripod for the phone, we improvised with a makeshift stand. The ceremony began with video, musician and officiant in place, and ended with a beautiful sunset. It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for these two. They had a dream wedding in Hawaii and took home with them memories they will cherish forever.
Thank you so much, Jill and James, for the privilege of photographing your special day!
