Susan & Chris’ Hilo Wedding

Here’s a Hilo wedding I photographed last year, before I launched this blog. I still enjoy looking at these photos, and the memory of creating them with Susan & Chris makes me smile. 🙂

The morning began with wonderment…

Yep. Still does. 🙂

Susan & Chris are from Kentucky, an Interior Designer and a Veterinarian respectively. But all of that went out the window on their wedding day. They had a sense of intimacy with one another that surprised even me, and it was obvious that the only thing on their minds was each other.
