Erin & Steve: The {Final} Post!!

As most of you already know Rich and I had the pleasure of shooting Erin & Steve's wedding at Olowalu Plantation House in Maui last month. What an incredible day!

It was an honor to capture this special day for such a wonderful couple, both with equally amazing family and friends. Erin has more friends than anyone I know and to see so many people travel so far to witness this event speaks volumes as to who she is as a person.

I can't tell you how nervous {and excited} I am to post these photos. I hope you all {Erin & Steve especially} enjoy them and I'm dying to hear what you think! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day! XOXO

















Erin goofing around...






I LOVE this one....






Boys will be boys...






The ring shot.






















We almost had some parasol casualties due to the wind.








Another favorite...




I love their height difference - isn't Steve so cute here?












...and they lived happily ever after.

Wow Swel, these are terrific!!! Love the long shot of the reception, with the beautiful evening sky (with single star and all), and the candid black/white group shot, oh yeah and the Erin and baby shot, too many favorites - as others have said, can't believe this was the Clark's first wedding shoot... Very Proud Swel and Rich..
