Ming and Nick's Wedding at the Four Seasons in Kona, Hawaii

Kona Hawaii US Wedding outdoor bride groom kissing beach ocean rocks waves

When Ming and Nick first emailed me about having me as their wedding photographer, they had not even picked where in the world their destination wedding would be. But it was clear that if they were dead set on one thing for their wedding day - that it was going to be fun.

Fun was an understatement for the weekend which included snorkeling with dolphins, delicious poke, sea turtles on the beach, guests that came ready to party, and for good measure - one of the most beautiful wedding destinations in the world - the Big Island's Four Seasons Resort Hualālai in Kona, Hawaii.

Here are some of the photos from their Hawaiian beach wedding. You can also see photos from our NYC engagement session a few blog posts back.

Susin and Kevin's New York Wedding at Mohonk Mountain House

New York wedding photoshoot ornaments photoframe

Susin grew up in Queens (like me!) but left the big city for the University of Michigan, where she met a handful of my old NY friends and eventually her husband Kevin. Kevin is from Portage, MI and as you can tell from the photo above - they both bleed maize and blue.

Susin and Kevin wanted a wedding venue with a naturalesque and green backdrop, which is why they chose the historic Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, upstate New York, 90 minutes outside of NYC. Makeup by JAC Beauty.
