Ku'uipo means Sweetheart.
Every single moment of this day, so genuine, so real.
Don't let the perfect smiles and pearls fool you though, these two know how to celebrate.
Congratulations Karen and Chaz- may every blessing you received this day carry you onward for decades to come.
Thank you Kym Vitar, as always, for your assistance, vision, and friendship.

This was one of those weddings. The kind where you walk into a room and you can feel the energy holding people up. Where everyone you encounter is so genuine, so real, that you can't help but be excited.
Erica and Chris had their family and friends join them in Sint Maarten. I was just lucky enough to be asked to join them. Seashells, turquoise water, rainbows, and tears of joy. That pretty much sums it up.
Congratulations Erica and Chris. Here are just a few of my personal favorites from your incredible day on the island.
Location: Sonesta Maho Beach
When you travel halfway around the world to document your high school best friend's wedding, a lot can happen. Missed flights, cancelled flights, unintentional 5 hour bus rides, lost luggage, thunderstorms, emergency room visits.
But somehow, when it was time for Katie and Eric to marry each other, the stars aligned. The skies cleared. The rainbow appeared. Not even joking.
Katie, to me, is the embodiment of the idea that positive energy brings positive events. To see someone so special to me experience such an event, with so much love beaming through the clouds, was something I will never, ever forget.
Katie and Eric, thank you for creating this day. And congratulations on creating the life you have together. We love you.

It's that time of year!
Every year on the day after Thanksgiving, I allow my friends and clients to purchase a certificate for a FULL SESSION to be used in 2016, at a super discounted price. Gorgeous family photos at $125 off the regular price? Score! You can even choose to receive the paper certificate, and give it as a gift to a family or someone you love! Best. Present. Ever.
HERE'S HOW TO SCORE THE DEAL: This year's Black Friday deal will be available on Friday November 27th at 9:00 am PST. I will post a photo on the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/intuitiveimagesphotography) and you must comment on that photo with your email address for the Paypal invoice. If you prefer not to post your email address, you may comment "Me!" or "Mine!" or something to that effect and then email email@example.com to receive your invoice. If you comment on the post, but do not provide your email address in some form, you will not get the deal. All invoices must be paid by 9pm that day, Nov. 27. Any unpaid invoices will be cancelled and given to the next person on the waiting list. (Yes, there will be a waiting list!)
As for the terms of the session, it is for a full portrait session. That means you get an hour of shooting, on location, for up to five people, and you get all your final edited images in high resolution in a beautiful online gallery. This year, these sessions must take place within 15 miles of Orange County, and all sessions must be scheduled by October 31, 2016. (They don't have to take place before that date, but your date must be on the calendar by then.) It cannot be used for newborn or wedding photography, and it's limit 2 per family.
There will be a VERY limited number of certificates available. Last year, I bent the rules a little, and allowed more people to purchase this deal than usual, and some families had a tough time getting a date for their session. So in order to better serve everyone, I have to stick to my guns this year! I can't tell you exactly how many of the certificates there are, but they will go QUICKLY! So please, please be ready- I don't want those of you who wait and wait for this deal wo be disappointed!
Enjoy Thanksgiving with people you love, and I'll see you on Friday morning!
(tip: Facebook can choose to not show some followers everypost in their news feed, so if you are interested in this deal, make sure you are FOLLOWING the facebook page, and have chosen "Get Notifications" underneath the "Like" button!)
Crop top wedding gown, a shave ice bar, a bouncy house- what else do you need to start a marriage? Whatever your answer, these two had it. Congratulations, Alex and Paulette. What a kickoff.
