Kristin and Aaron's ten year anniversary session in Princeville, Kauai - Hawaii

I was so excited when I heard that Kristin and Aaron were going to be in Hawaii the same time as me, and wanted to do a photo shoot! Kristin and Aaron are not only partners in life but also in business - they are a incredibly talented photographers. Their work blows my mind. I was so honored to photograph them and get to know them better. They had me cracking up the entire time so I didn't even feel like I was working. I can see why they make such a great team. I asked them to share a little bit about themselves, their adventures in Hawaii and some advise for other couples - here's what they had to say:

"We are high school sweethearts, started dating in 1999, married in 2005

We had the time of our lives on our honeymoon in Maui, 10 years ago. We couldn't wait to get back to Hawaii, and knew we wanted to come back for our anniversary. It will always hold a special place in our heart since it was our honeymoon, but we wanted to explore a different island, so we chose Kauai. Kauai was breathtaking. The best part was just spending time together, it didn't matter where we were. As parents it is easy to get stuck in raising a child together, instead of focusing on marriage. I highly recommend trips for just the two of you, no kids! We had the time of our lives adventuring together.... hiking the Napali coast, exploring beaches, jumping in waterfalls, dreaming together, experiencing new culture, sitting in local coffee shops, watching whales, and experiencing life ...together.... there is nothing like it. Marriage is tons of hard work, but the most rewarding experience to share life with your best friend. Marriage is worth fighting for and celebrating, so we chose to celebrate it, in Kauai! It will be something we will still be talking about when we are 80!

We are so thankful for Elizabeth, and these stunning images! We were completely blown away! The photoshoot was such a fun experience, and one of our favorite days in Kauai. Elizabeth poured her heart into this photoshoot, and we will forever be grateful for these gorgeous images! I would follow here anywhere in the world to have a photoshoot!"

Hurricane Iselle Aftermath in Pahoa and Kalapana and a trip to Rainbow Falls in Hilo, Hawaii

Hard to believe that almost two months ago, this was the main road right in front of my brothers property in Pāhoa, Hi. It was amazing to see the community come together and help one another after Hurricane Iselle. There were trees down everywhere blocking residents in, including us. We were feeling cabin fever set in... and thinking we weren't going to be able to get out for days. We had had about enough of sitting and waiting so we started out hiking to see if we could get help but as we got closer to the road we slowly started hearing chainsaws making their way closer to us. Finally they reached us and were even kind enough to clear our driveway so we could get out. It was absolutely amazing to see how strong the community is here and how giving everyone is. As scary and destructive as the hurricane was... I actually thought created some breathtaking scenery... like the first few below. I love how beautiful greenery covering the road was. Hope you enjoy.
