Jeez - I’m so glad you asked! LOL
No, but seriously. Hiking elopements are what I freaking LIVE FOR!!!
If you believe in creating an experience that will last a lifetime then you are in the right place my friend because that is just what we will do!
A hiking elopement is so much more than just a trek to a dope spot. It’s a full experience the entire way. You’ll get to see some of the most breathtaking scenery that Hawaii has to offer. You’ll get to get away from the crowds of tourists and get to experience the best part of Hawaii - nature.
On these experiences, I am more than just your photographer. I help you craft an entire experience that is unique to you and your love and I am essentially your tour guide the entire way! I have great contacts on island who can provide florals, a celebratory picnic or anything else you may need to complete your big day.
The process begins after you inquire and I send over my questionnaire which helps me better understand you and your love.
This questionnaire will help me uncover what type of experience you guys are looking for. It’ll also help me better understand your level of experience when it comes to hiking and adventuring so I can assist you in choosing a location!
CHOOSE A SCENE
Although I have tons of recommendations if you are unsure of what you want or just need a little guidance but this one is totally personal preference.
Hawaii is home to some of the most diverse scenery I have ever seen. It’s the only place I have been that you can come straight off a mountain and walk across the road to the beach. We have waterfalls, tropical rainforests, hikes with panoramic views of the whole island, epic cliff side views and of course beautiful beaches.
Can’t choose just one? No big deal! Let’s do them all! After all, might as well take advantage of your time here and get the most bang for your buck!
I have the ultimate itinerary for those of you who want to hit as many different types of scenery as possible. We will drive around the entire island to be sure we don’t miss a single thing! I’ll even recommend some of my favorite places to eat on the island that you’ll have to try before you leave.
CHOOSE YOUR DIFFICULTY LEVEL
If you’re an avid hiker or someone who has never hiked at all - there is something for you!
Please please please don’t let the fear of the unknown scare you out of choosing a hiking elopement. Hiking elopements are an amazing experience and I don’t want you to miss out just because you have never hiked before or are just unsure about something!
I have done nearly every single hike on this island so I know which ones will be the most secluded so you and your love can share an intimate moment together. I also now which ones offer the best views of the island and the difficulty level of each hike.
There are hikes ranging from 0.7 miles all the way to multi-day backpacking trips. Some hikes are paved while others are incredibly muddy. However, I can promise you that once you get to the view - the entire trek was worth it all.
ENJOY YOUR DAY
This is your freakin’ wedding day - it’s a time you want to enjoy and soak up every single moment of. This is not a workout so please take your time to enjoy the entire experience and not exhaust yourself to where you don’t enjoy the simple things.
We can stop as often as you’d like throughout the hike for snack breaks and of course to admire the views and soak up this special moment with your love.
I mean this is the day you two are devoting your entire lives to each other - it’s not like this happens every day and I want to celebrate that!
I will direct and pose you for various photos and of course capture the entire day. We will still get all the traditional shots included in a wedding like getting ready, first look, vows and portraits but I will also give you two space to soak in your day and the love you two share and just the sole fact of where you are saying your vows to each other.
I want you guys to enjoy the entire experience and truly just be present with each other because this will be the best day of your life, something you will cherish forever.
