Carissa was simply looking for an engagement photographer when she found me earlier this year. She and Dylan are getting married at a Vineyard in Maui and figured that they would hire an engagement photographer in DC and their wedding photographer in Hawaii. Carissa couldn’t believe her stroke of luck when she happened upon my website and discovered that I was a Hawaii wedding photographer who had just moved to DC! I am so excited to be photographing their wedding next year in Maui, which is such a great chance for me to go back and say aloha to the islands so near and dear to my heart.
I had such a blast with Dylan and Carissa. We met up at their alma mater GWU where they met and attended classes together. We also took a stroll around the campus as well as the spot where it all happened for them, a local bar called Tonic. Carissa and Dylan stopped to get a few drinks and we continued on photographing them. They even had the chance to sit on the same couch where they first got the courage to talk to one another.
After leaving Tonic we came across a gorgeous cherry blossom that we didn’t have to fight any crowds for. The tree was in full peak bloom with gorgeous lush pink and purple leaves.
Thank you so much Carissa and Dylan for inviting me along on this adventure with you two. Next time I see you both we will all have that beautiful Hawaiian glow! Until then Mahalo!
