FRAN + KYLE | POLOLU VALLEY ELOPEMENT
One day, we got a call from Fran’s mother in need of hiring photographers for her daughter’s elopement ceremony on Big Island. We sat down and talked to the mom about the situation her daughter, Fran and her husband, Kyle were currently in. After hearing their story, Ryan + I jumped at the opportunity in providing Fran and Kyle with the ultimate Hawaiian elopement experience, even if it wasn’t what they had originally planned.
Fran + Kyle had a civil ceremony in Nevada before their planned elopement in Bali. They thought of everything to make their elopement incredibly special like choosing the perfect photographer, arranging a place to stay and even choosing the best location for their intimate ceremony. ⠀⠀
When Fran + Kyle were flying from Vancouver to China, they were told they couldn’t go on to Bali. Kyle's passport was going to expire within 6 months and they simply wouldn't let them go any further. At this point, Fran + Kyle were in total panic mode and called their friends + family to let them know what happened. ⠀⠀
Without a better plan, Fran + Kyle flew to Big Island (per a friend’s suggestion) and started their honeymoon. Since Fran still had her dress with her, they reached out to us to see if we could capture their elopement. After hearing their story, Ryan + I agreed to shoot their elopement and knew we wanted to make this day a memory they would keep with them forever. ⠀⠀
We had a blast traversing up and down the valley, visiting waterfalls, + capturing the precious moments like reading their vows to each other. Fran + Kyle, thank you for trusting us with your big day. You two are going to accomplish amazing things in this marriage!
