Playful surf session in Oahu, Hawaii || Tysee + Rick

I’ve been puuuumped to get this session up on the blog to share with you all because it entirely lit – me – up. Capturing the unique stories of the people we meet in this crazy world brings life into what we do. So when I crossed paths online with Tysee & Rick, a fearless traveling duo, I couldn’t wait to meet & photograph their love in Oahu, Hawaii. We ran up & down the most picturesque dock I’ve definitely ever seen, splashed in the crystal clear water with their surfboard, and walked along the iconic Hawaii shoreline with Jurassic Park mountains in the background. To have Tysee & Rick in front of the camera was a dreeeeam. Other than being incredibly beautiful people, they are so full of life & laughter & a love that’s carried them all over the world. These two met in Thailand, moved to Australia, traveled back through NYC where they eloped two days after Rick proposed, and now live in Oahu where they surf, hike, bike, play on palm trees, and adventure all around the island. You can catch more of their baller life together over on the ‘grams here: @marriedandabroad.

So here’s to living a life that chooses adventure over comfort, new over the same ‘ole, and love over material things.

Windy Elopement Inspiration on the Cliffs of Oahu

On the southeastern shore of Oahu you’ll find a swirled terrain of cliffs surrounded by crashing 20-foot waves. All-at-once you’ll feel the peace, awe, and power of Hawaiian nature and agree that it’s the ideal spot for an earthy elopement. Mary & Travis are true champions for adventuring through the cliff lines dressed in their finest – between Travis’ suspenders & Mary’s geometric headpiece they entirely rocked it. ROCKed it. And all while barefoot! We wandered through the ribboned red lava formations that reminded us of the Grand Canyon (the version of the GC that has crashing waves spraying on the layered rock and an uninterrupted view of the vast Pacific, of course). We altered our course based on the beautiful movement-creating winds, scrambled straight up the cliff faces, and huddled in some of the swirly coves. You might even see some aerial drone shots in there :)! This adventure was one we won’t forget – thank you Mary & Travis for letting us photograph your love ♥.
