Here’s our Lorraine aka Frenchie and Cory’s 14×10″ Queensberry!  Queensberry’s wedding albums have a very distinct style and are known around the world as the premier wedding album maker.  Their attention to detail is impeccable and their service second to none.  I’m proud to be able to offer these exquisite albums and you would be very privileged to be the distinguished owner of one of these works of art…

Cherish and Glenn | Oahu Wedding Photography

Share

One thing we do know how to do well in Hawaii is throw a party. So when we plan a wedding it’s pretty certain that we are 1) gonna dance and 2) gonna get drunk! Cherish and Glenn have been through pretty much all the formalities and they even have a 3 year old beautiful little girl! So after a very long engagement, Cherish and Glenn decided they should tie the knot this year. But when it came to the wedding, they wanted to break all the traditions. We had a beautiful ceremony at the Crystal Chapel in west Oahu, and the reception was at the Honolulu Country Club. Glenn as emotional as he still is, tried to hold it together during the ceremony procession promising not to shed any tears, but momentarily lost it. The garter toss of course, to the women, married. And the bouquet toss, to the men; the money dance was a fantastic break from tradition with Zsaleigh (their daughter) in a traditional Samoan dance. The kissing requests and mimic games were all different! There was so much love and warmth in the dances especially when Cherish was honored by all the “men” in her life that replaced her late father during the father daughter dance… we were all moved. I love weddings…

On wedding album design

Share

I approach all my album designs in relatively the same way.  I want impact and story.  If a viewer that has had no relation to the day can be inspired by looking through the album or even make it through the whole book without skimming, then I’ve done my job.  This is a tall order.  We have more connection to the day then we realize and want to include all the shots that generally won’t enhance the story or make an impact but they might mean something to us.  Editing our spreads and making sure we don’t scrapbook our wedding album is the top priority.  We want to be efficient with the images and give reverence to the great moments by isolating those images and support the story with details.  Materials and color become secondary to the images but still have to support the overall theme of the day (colors, texture, etc.).  Size is a budgetary issue;  The album should fit the budget of the couple and be relative to the overall budget of the wedding.  I always recommend saving a bit for expanding the wedding album after the event, For example, extra spreads that can hold all the moments that complete the story of the day.  Remember one important thing when you’re planning an album – they are not for us… we design and make albums for the generations that follow us.  We show our children the celebration that perpetuates the family and hope they give the same high acclaim to their own relationships in the future.

Denise and Ya | Destination Wedding, The Kahala

Share

Spiritually we’re brought together for reasons we have no control of. Call it gravity, cosmic connections, soul mates, whatever you choose. Our destination wedding couple Denise and Ya have found that connection in life and a few clues to perhaps why they should be together. We know that our soul mates make us more capable, happier, and indeed healthier and Denise and Ya had a slogan that they call “better together”.  It’s true. and we feel it with them!  When two families come together like this it warms my heart so much and I always feel thankful that we’re here together with the ones we love, in the right place at the right time. there should never be any confusion. It is so true at weddings.

Trinity and Justin | Destination Wedding Hawaii

Share

Trinity and Justin serendipitously came to us from California where Trinity is a loan officer and Justin is in the auto business. We talked a bit about the photos they wanted and discussed spending a morning out on Kaneohe Bay to take pre-wedding pictures on the sand bar.  Now, of course for that we needed a boat and a ride out there.  We got lucky with Pahia who responded to our ad and chartered his boat for us!!  I wasn’t sure what we we’re gonna come out with being that the one day we had on the sand bar was all we were gonna get. We were so fortunate to have great conditions out in Kaneohe Bay; the drama with the red dress made it so unique!  Very dramatic, colorful and somewhat surreal…  Trinity and Justin are gorgeous!  I have to thank Art Phothisantikul for coming out and helping!! Thank you Art!! Knowing that we would probably run out of time for portraits on the wedding day, Trinity and Justin booked a post-wedding portrait session the day after their beautiful Turtle Bay wedding with their family and friends out on the north shore of Oahu. The session and the light we’re so beautiful! We had a chance to get to know each other a bit more and took some amazing portraits… That location is Aiea Loop Trail which is where the post opens and the first series of images are from.  This post is a little longer than normal because it includes the engagement sessions so I apologize in advance but I wanted to lay out these photos as I would for an album.
