The whole world got turned upside down back in March when the #covid-19 pandemic hit. Many #hawaiiweddings got postponed until 2021 but some couples are deciding on downsizing their special day and opting for a #elopement instead of a traditional large wedding. There are many benefits of having an elopement and I will go through some tips and tricks on planning your #hawaiielopement. Whatever you decide on you will definitely want this once-in-a-lifetime moment captured with a quality fun #elopementphotographer.

LOCATION

Once you decide on one of the many beautiful locations on all the different islands of Hawai'i, make sure that you set your travel arrangements early. Opt in for the travel insurance so you have peace of mind when it comes to any unexpected changes to the trip. Choosing the backdrop for your elopement should depend on the style you are going for and what fits your personality. If you are looking for a gorgeous sunset, I would recommend #Kona which is located on the #BigIsland. They are known for some of the most vibrant golden rouge sunsets and have plenty of beach options to choose from. Big Island is home to black, green and red sand beaches. For epic landscaped mountain views I would choose a private chartered boat and take the trip up the Napali Coast on the island of Kaua'i. These cliff side mountains are from a different era. Honestly when I first saw them I couldn't believe my eyes, they are so majestic that they don' t even look real! What better backdrop for a stunning #kauaielopement. For the adventurous couple, O'ahu is home to some of the best hiking in the world with 360 degree views of the whole island. Perfect setting for an #adventureelopement on top of a mountain range or deep in an emerald jungle with just the sounds of birds in the air. If you dreamed of having your elopement by a crashing waterfall, Maui will be the spot you want to check out. So many choices of easily accessible waterfalls to choose from. Couples who want a more desolate secluded location where you are unlikely to run into anyone should go with either of the two smallest islands of Hawai'i , Lanai and Molokai. Both these islands are the least populated and has more opportunities for a more island country feel. Having a #molokaielopement could offer the plenty of chances to really unplug and take in the moment.


STYLING, WARDROBE and HAIR & MAKE-UP

I cannot stress enough the importance of leaving your styling and make-up up to the professionals. The money you save from having a large wedding can be better spent making sure you both look your absolute best. Capturing those epic landscape elopement photographs will be stunning with a hand selected dress that fits your scenery. Choosing an elopement package that is #allinclusive and includes your styling (Hair&Make-up,Wardrobe,Floral Artist) is the best route to go for a stress free elopement planning. After shooting lots of elopements I have curated some great all-inclusive elopement packages for my clients. Feel free to connect with me today to learn more.


PHOTOGRAPHY

This is the one moment in your life that you will definitely want quality photographs. If you are looking to be able get your elopement captured in a large print, canvas or wood print to hang in your home, you will need a professional photographer. Any photograph that is needed to be enlarged for prints will need the quality of DSLR cameras with high pixels that are used today by the best #hawaiielopementphotographers. Lower level cameras and even the best phone cameras on the newest iPhone will not be able to produce the details needed for large printing. Also when it comes to having an adventure elopement where you expect to spend sometime hiking to your elopement location, you will want a knowledgeable and fun photographer to spend the hike with. I always make sure to offer pre-scouting for my clients elopement locations along with having a great time being in nature. I love sharing my insights on the island because it truly is a magical place. This can be a moment you can look back at for generations to come with a stunning large art print above your fireplace or living room.


PLANNING

When it comes down to it, one of the main reasons Hawai'i elopements are becoming so popular is because many are forced to downsize their event due to Covid-19 and of course there is the ease of plannig. An elopement has fewer moving parts than a large wedding with little to no guests. The stress that gets lifted by not feeling like you are hosting might be your best wedding present yet! Whatever you decide to do you will want a professional helping you along the way with suggestions and one and one experiences with the islands. I love helping my couples plan their elopements to make it special and uniquely them. Connect with me today to learn more about my Hawai'i Elopement All-Inclusive Packages. I can't wait to hear from you:)
