Stormy Couple's Session On the Cliffs | Hawaii Engagement Photographer | Ola + Michal

If you're planning on a couple's photoshoot, anniversary photos, or an engagement session while visiting Hawaii, you'll definitely want to see the magic Ola + Michal created cliffside. These two just have so much fire, for once I was thankful for the humidity! haha

Sunrise is Underrated, Clouds = Mood 

I'll be honest: I'm so not the best at mornings. I'm more of a night owl than a morning bird, but when it means we get really rad light I will always suck up the early alarm clock. It's all the more reason to get coffee afterward, right? Plus, I love that sunrise is sort of the underdog when it comes to light. Everyone loves that golden hour, but really there's so much beauty in the morning. On this day, we were up before the sun and wandering down by the cliffs.

I also can't say enough how much I love a moody sky. Clouds create such texture and it's a completely different feel. Cloudy skies evoke emotion like no other. I just love the way these two embraced the clouds and focused on each other.

I love the way Ola + Michal braved the cliffs together. They weren't afraid to get close to the edge and see what was on the other side (some crazy crashing waves, by the way). It makes my heart skip a beat, but adventurous souls like these two are what inspires me!

We even got photobombed by a fishing boat while we were down there!

I don't know about you, but when it's cloudy I definitely want to snuggle up. I think it's just a part of those feelings a gray sky brings out. Ola + Michal took advantage of the weather by getting cuddled up close.

After hanging out by the cliffs, we ventured down to the river for a little fun. I love having two locations for a shoot because it lends to so much diversity. With the cliffs, we got the ocean and this dramatic landscape. With the river, we got the lush green and tropical vibes Hawaii is known for.

Sunshine, rain, gray skies, it doesn't matter when you're together. I seriously love capturing connection no matter what the sky is doing, so always know that we'll still get out there and have fun even if it's moody out.
