alo(sharing)+oha ( joyous affection, joy)+ha (life, energy, breath)=
Aloha: Joyfully sharing life!
I love this definition of "Aloha!" It so perfectly reflects the wedding of Millie & Sugi who flew us out to the beautiful island of Oahu to photograph their day. All their guests had come from afar to celebrate with the happy couple as well as enjoy the Hawaiian sunshine!

We first got to know Millie and Sugi a few months ago when we shot their B+G Session in San Fransisco, one of their favourite cities. It was quite the adventure climbing the windy cliffside by the Golden Gate bridge!
Last week, we met them on the island of Ohau. At the Halekulani hotel, Millie got ready in the luxury of her oceanside room.

Three necklaces: one for the ceremony, one for the reception, and one dancing the night away.
Loving our new 85mm 1.2 lens! Into the dress.
Shoe sparkle.
The lovely bride.
And the handsome groom. Millie laughing with her girls before the ceremony.
The walk down the aisle. Yay! Married!
The incredible Jan, from Vancouver's Horizon Wedding Films, hard at work on the beach.
And husband and wife enjoying the a moment by the ocean.We're always up for a little rock-scrambling...but Millie wasn't expecting this wave!At the reception, each table was labelled with postcards from the couple's favourite cities in the world.
Nice dip, Sugi! Congratulations Millie & Sugi!

I love the grandeur of the first two . . . what a neat idea with the city decorating on the tables.

You guys do such great work -- plus, you live in one of my favorite cities in the world. My husband and I vacationed there last summer and we just fell in love with it.

Can't wait to see what you guys do next! ++
