DEVIN + AUSTIN | BIG ISLAND VALLEY ADVENTURE SESSION
Devin + Austin reached out to us even before they got married. They knew they were going to honeymoon in Hawaii after their wedding, and Devin knew she wanted the memories of their time in Hawaii captured. When Devin talked about what she was envisioning for their session, we all agreed that Pololu Valley would be the perfect location for their adventure session. It would be the perfect mix of valley shots mixed with the forest and ending at the cliffs for sunset.
As an elopement photographer husband and wife team in Hawaii, Ryan + I always have back up options for the location depending on the weather. When we started our session with Devin + Austin, it was misting with rain and the valley didn’t look like it was going to open up anytime soon. We gave them a separate option in case they didn’t want to hike in the rain, but they were totally up for it!
We were absolutely stoked that they chose to keep going despite the rain, because Pololu Valley is simply mystical when rain comes down. We also knew that with the rain, the crowd down in the valley would probably dissipate. We were right. By the time we got down into the valley, barely anyone was there. We had the entire valley to ourselves for their honeymoon session.
After a few hours down in Pololu Valley, we hiked back up and drove to cliffs where we could watch with a view of the sunset. It was so incredible and beautiful. With the amount of misty rain coming down, it was perfect conditions for a rainbow. Sure enough, within minutes of arriving to the cliffside spot, we spotted a rainbow on the opposite side of where we were shooting. We ran across to the other side and captured some of my favorite rainbow shots yet!
