Jasiel + Raquel

Surprise Engagement Photography

The clouds were here all day leading up to the couples shoot with Jasiel + Raquel. We were hoping that they would clear in time for sunset, but as we made the drive to the windward side, the cloud cover remained. The soft, filtered light made the couple glow gently, surrounded by the picturesque backdrop of jagged mountain peaks and calm coastal waters. A slight drizzle passed through, turning the light a yellowish hue. As the sun lowered, the colors of sunset finally made an appearance, complementing the vibrant haku (flower crown) that Raquel wore. These two then sat and played on the beach before walking back to the car in darkness.

And of course there's always a lot of goofing around during our sessions.
