Couple’s Portraits – K & E at Pounders Beach – Laie, HI
I’m mainly a family photographer, but I love it when I get inquiries for couple’s portraits! Kim and Elgin are one of the coolest couples ever and I had a great evening photographing them.
To celebrate their anniversary, Kim and Elgin booked a trip to Oahu and wanted to capture the special moment with a session. Kim and discussed locations in detail and with Elgin’s input, we decided that Pounders Beach would be the perfect option. Pounders, which is located in Laie, Hawaii on the northwestern shore of Oahu, had the perfect mix of perfectly blue water, a strip of beach, and mountains.
Kim kept their outfits very neutral and soft in colors, to emphasize on the scenery. I mentioned about how it’s typically a bit breezy or windy at the beaches in the evenings and she used that to her advantage by wearing a dress that flowed well in the wind.
Their laid-back and fun personalities made the session so fun and easy to shoot! I was, for the most part, just following them around and they needed little to no direction. I absolutely loved this location and I hope to use it a few more times with future sessions. The drive is totally worth it!
