Love & Adventure
Elopements are a beautiful thing. The word means "secret departure", and it has always been a very popular way of getting married. Elopements imbue romance and adventure, chance and wonder. Dylan and Bryanna wanted to take the leap and venture to Maui with their closest friends and family, and to find the perfect location to exchange their wedding vows. It didn't take long for them to decide on having their wedding ceremony at Twin Falls on Maui.
Dylan & Bryanna live for the adventure. The unbeaten path. We walked around Wailele Farm and found areas and trails that lead away from the main tourist destinations. This was their elopement, the secret departure and moment alone.
As we made our way back to the ceremony location. We took an unexpected turn down a trail that had incredible lighting. There's a lot of effort made when hiking through brush and climbing down rock steps. I am grateful that his couple were willing and agreed to take full advantage of the landscape for photos.
Life takes you to unexpected places, love brings you home.
“Wow. I really am speechless but here I sit, trying to formulate the right words to convey my pure joy. The photographs Aaron captured during our elopement detail every tiny emotion we felt that day. It gives me goosebumps because these photos bring me straight back to each exact moment. He lightly guided us into certain poses, because like most people, we’re not models and just total goobs; he also brought us to the most magical places to create a very intimate feel at a very busy waterfall. Mahalo!”
Thank you Dylan & Bryanna for choosing to work with me! It was such a pleasure getting to know you and your family. Thank you for your willingness to explore and find the unbeaten path to take these incredible photos. I still get inspired by you guys and from our interaction during the photoshoot. I hope that these memories are cherished and bring you joy for many, many years! - Aaron Najera
