ALEX + THAO | BIG ISLAND VALLEY ENGAGEMENT SESSION
Thao + Alex contacted us to capture their engagement session while they were visiting Big Island. Being adventurers themselves, we knew we wanted to take them hiking in the valley. We definitely hiked further than we had ever hiked with a couple and we loved getting to know their story along the way. Once we reached the top, both Ryan + I looked at each other in a way that said, “This is the ideal location for a Big Island elopement in the future!”
Thao told us that they met through the app, Coffee Meets Bagel. At the time, she was going to school full time and finally decided to try out this app after hearing her friends talk about it for months. Her and Alex matched; however, it took awhile for Thao to finally give in to going on a date with Alex. Once Alex + Thao finally met, they totally clicked. The rest was history!
They came to Hawaii this time around to attend a wedding in Maui; however, they stopped on the Big Island last to enjoy some free diving and relaxation time. We were so pumped to be able to show these two this valley location they had never been before. Alex and Thao were absolute champs on this hike and made this engagement session a total breeze. We wish them the best of luck as they settle into their engagement and their new home in Washington this year.
