NITA + JORDAN | BIG ISLAND BLACK SAND BEACH | ANNIVERSARY SESSION
Nita + Jordan wanted to capture their anniversary and kick off their big move with a photoshoot at a black sand beach close to where they moved to on the Big Island. Nita + Jordan first visited Big Island a year ago on their honeymoon and totally fell in love with it. They couldn’t resist the pull that Hawaii has on you. They went back home in California and figured out a way to save up to buy property in Puna on the Big Island. A year following their wedding, they did come back, bought property, and have been recently settling into their new lives on the island.
When Nita reached out to us, she was 100% confident that we could capture her and Jordan in a way she always imagined. It being their anniversary and the kick off to their new chapter in Hawaii, we knew exactly where we wanted to take Nita + Jordan on the Big Island. When we chatted with them, we all settled on a black sand beach close to where they live for sunrise. As Big Island elopement photographers in Hawaii, Ryan + I are always scoping for new locations for future elopements. This beach is definitely at the top of our list.
Ryan + I were up and out the door by 4am. We met Nita + Jordan at 6am right at the top of the beach. We hiked down and were surprised to see as many fisherman and people hanging out at the beach at sunrise. You don’t find that in other parts of the island. We had fun dancing in the rain and making the best of this incredible black sand beach for their anniversary.
