'O ku'u aloha no 'oe - You are indeed my love

When I first met Chris and Elaine, I was immediately blown away by their passion for health and fitness. They are very passionate about how they exercise and what they eat with every single meal. And then I learned about how long they have been together and how deep is their love for each other, I learned about their love story. Chris and Elaine met back in 2007 in Honolulu when Chris went to his High School reunion. Their first date was very unique, when Elaine visited Chris during New Year's eve weekend in San Francisco where they spent a couple days getting to know each other. They have endured a long distance relationship for about a year and a half before they decided to be together in San Francisco. 

I had the privilege of photographing their engagement, I was able to immediately tell we were going to have a lot of fun with this session. They're a very laid back and fun couple to photograph. Looking through my lens and seeing how they look at each other, how Elaine puts her arms around him, and how Chris holds her hand, I could tell how deeply in love are these two. They love celebrating their love and how blessed they are being in each other's arms. I just love capturing two people who celebrates love and life, two people who are just perfect for each other.
