I love how photography can freeze instants so that you can relive them forever. I found Chelsea Abril on a wedding blog before we traveled to Hawaii and I knew I wanted her to photograph us there. My flower crown was made by Ocean Dreamer (go follow her on Instagram if you don’t already, her account is flower heaven !).
The true story is that before the shoot, while trying to curl my hair in the cabin of the boat we were staying in, I lost it : my hair looked ugly, I would look horrible on the photos, I didn’t want to go anymore. I don’t really know how Pierre did it, but he reassured me, told me that I looked perfect and proved me once more that he was the perfect guy for me. We went to Makapu Cove on Oahu, Chelsea was a dream to work with, she made us laugh, feel relaxed and the shoot was basically us kissing and loving each other. Those are amongst my favorite photos of us together, especially remembering how that day started. If you are ever in Hawaii (or Seattle, she lives there now), get Chelsea to photograph, you won’t regret it !
