I met these two the day the arrived on O’ahu. They were asking about some good hikes and I was afraid the one they talked about taking was going to be a bit much for them. Little did I know they are real adventures and have spent many years at each other’s side seeing the back country of Canada (their home) and various other places around the globe.
They came to Hawai’i to celebrate life, their marriage, and take yet another adventure together. I’m honored they chose to spend some of their time with me in a Beloved Session.
It was an honor to meet you to! May your adventures continue and be as beautiful as your hearts!
I’ve known Ginger for a few years now (mostly online), as we run in some of the same photography circles. Since we’ve only met for about 15 minutes once at a conference (Ginger was gracious enough to remind me of this while forgiving my forgetfulness…) I was excited when she invited me to hop islands to Kaua’i to shoot a Beloved Session for her and her husband Aaron. To get to hang out with them while they were escaping the winter cold of Minnesota and exploring the beauty that is the islands was a treat and an honor.
Ginger, a fellow Beloved Photographer, knew what to expect from the session but her husband Aaron was just thrown into it (really, he wasn’t – it was a great chance for experience with Ginger what she provides for other couples – a chance to focus on each other and explore their connection).
One of my favorite parts was that we started up at the Kalalau Valley near a lookout that started with Pu’u (which is the Hawaiian word for “Beloved”). We all found that a fitting way to start.
Thanks for having me over to Kaua’i you two!
