ASHLEY + LEO | MAUI ELOPEMENT IN IAO VALLEY
I remember Leo + Ashley reaching out to us to capture her Hawaii elopement session at the beginning of the year. I recall receiving the inquiry and sending our brochure; however, it wasn’t until months later that Ashley reached out again about wanting to confirm the dates for their Hawaii elopement. Luckily, we didn’t have any other photography session booked the weekend they were going to be in Maui, so we hopped over for the weekend. Ashley + Leo wanted us to capture their Maui elopement in different attire than their traditional Korean wedding outfits.
She envisioned the jungle and valleys against the white colors of both of their outfits. We knew the best spot for the photos — Iao Valley! We started in the Valley and captured shots of their white formal wear against the stunning valley behind them. After shooting several different scenes here, we drove to our next location. Ashley wanted a variety of landscapes in her shots, so we found stunning tan mountains that were gleaming perfectly with the sun.
After we capture some unique mountain shots, we changed our last location to the beach. Ashley + Leo did a quick wardrobe change and we loved capturing shots of them at the beach as the sunset along the horizon. We had such a blast with these two during their hawaii elopement session, and we loved being able to capture their vision just as they had hoped!
