Adventure Ocean Session at Golden Hour with Megan + Jacob on The Big Island, HI


I cannot say enough about how much fun we had with Megan and Jacob two during their sunset adventure session. Both born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, these two had a comfortability with the land that I hadn’t seen too many times before with other couples that we’ve shot on the island. They didn’t mind taking off their slippers, running barefoot amongst the pebble stoned beach or even stripping down to their bathing suits and jumping in the water in a matter of minutes. We even had them dip into a freshwater pool to snap a few shots and it is extremely cold. They jumped in without complaint and we captured some of the most intimate shots of these two. I know if I was in Megan’s position, I would be ready to get out within the first minute. Megan and Jacob were champs and they stayed in there for a solid 5-10 minutes while we captured shots of them. 

As we moved from the beach to the ocean to the freshwater pool, I couldn’t help but admire their sweet love. These two were soft spoken, gentle, but never without a huge smile on their face. You could sincerely feel the love and passion these two have together with every prompt we gave them and in every interaction. Even as Megan was making her way to sit on a log, Jacob held out his hand to help her down. At least, I know, chivalry is still alive (ahem, Ryan!! — only kidding). Megan and Jacob’s love stemmed back in high school when a friend introduced them. After that, it was history! They’ve been together ever since. 

From their youthful look to their soft spoken nature, I would’ve never expected them to be as comfortable, graceful, and just hands down SEXY during this shoot but these shots turned out to be straight fire!!! I am beyond grateful these two decided to join us in a sunset session in one of our favorite spots on the Big Island. We also couldn’t be more excited with how these photos turned out!
