Payton & Joshua | Kahana Bay - Oahu, HI


candid beach photoshoot

There aren't a lot of things that get me up at 4 in the morning.. actually, the only thing that does is a sunrise session 🤣 For a lot of my clients that are visiting from out of town, sunrise ends up working out for them, since they are usually ahead of Hawaii time! Payton and Joshua were visiting from Canada, and wanted to take some fun engagement photos to highlight their trip! I was so excited because I could tell they were ready to get a little splashy (my favorite) and have some fun. When your clients are this cute it makes the 4am wake up call worth it.

So the story behind this shot is a little funny. I kept seeing photographers do this pose nicknamed "you spin me" and I had wanted to try it out for a while! Thankfully they were super up to it, since it involved me hanging on Joshua's back like a spider monkey while they spun around 😂 If it were me being photographed, I would have looked like a fool, but Payton looked so graceful!! I'm sure if anyone was watching us during this moment we probably looked like a bunch of crazy people hahaha.
