Lagoon Trash the Dress, Cook Islands

A couple of days after their wedding at Pacific Resort, we got to catch up with Leah & Jamie again for a trash the dress session, unfortunately the swell was too big to take them over the reef into deep ocean, so we stayed on the more sheltered side of the island in the lagoon. Those light blue tones reminded us of Aitutaki, so pretty.  Thanks for deciding to do the trash the dress guys, you were awesome! xox


Emilee + Chris - Rarotonga Elopement

Emilee a wedding coordinator and Chris a firefighter, from Orange County, California - one of the nicest and most genuine couples we have had the opportunity to work with. We sat for ages talking to them about all their travels and exciting adventures together. They got engaged in Thailand while diving... Chris literally proposed to her underwater. It was only fitting these two beach lovin gypsies elope to a beautiful island for a simple, but elegant beach wedding.

talena + Simon Desert to Sea


Once a year thousands of people gather in the middle of the Nevada desert to attend what is known as the most bizarre party in the world. Burning Man! This is where Talena and Simons love story began, and we were honored to document their first day as husband and wife as they eloped on our little island in the middle of the south pacific ocean at our favorite venue Te Manava Luxury Spa & Villas. We hope you had the best honeymoon in New Zealand guys, your love and energy was inspiring.
