Mahalo for the Rainbows

I served as the photographer at my cousin's Aloha Open House to celebrate his wedding that occurred in Hawai'i two weeks ago to his beautiful bride.

The couple requested that my shots be candid and not posed so I had a fun and energetic evening taking shots of all the guests just enjoying themselves.

Midway through the wonderful open house, the clouds opened up and rain just poured down. The wind was blowing it sideways at some points. The cloudburst lasted about 15-20 minutes and then the evening sun peeked its face out to reveal a double rainbow in the eastern sky.

Ironically, the wedding card that I had purchased for them was a musical card that had the Hawaiian version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in it. This is my favorite shot from the entire evening. It says so much without any words at all. I know that their marriage has been blessed already and will continue to be blessed for years to come.
Pin It!

  2. Don't you just love these impromptu 'happenings', it really does feel like some sort of extra blessing. How special to be such a part of the wedding too, I'm so with them on candid photography. Good luck to them both! :)
