Maui Newlywed Photographer - Kathy + Kyle by Aubrey Hord Photography

 A few teasers from a newlywed shoot with clients Kathy and Kyle!  The photo session was a wonderful wedding gift from Kyle's brother, Sean. 
 I love "stolen moments" with couples.
 It even got a little steamy! Woo hoo! We love working with couples in love. It makes our job easy.

 Congratulations you two and all the best in your future adventures together! 

A hui hou,

Lara Jade Lighting Workshop comes to Maui

Aren't we lucky! One of London's hottest fashion photographers, Lara Jade, hosted a Lighting Workshop on Maui that was fantastic and filled with amazing imagery to shoot. Here is a peek at what we did over the weekend.
The lovely model Uilani Davis below on Day 1. First image above is of model Brittney Baker. 

Lara is a super talented young fashion photographer (only 21yrs old!) with a great head on her shoulders and a wonderfully warm and positive attitude to go with it. 
 Below is the lovely Lara Jade.

She's amazing with models and has great vision for shoots. She recently moved to the Big Apple of New York City and is getting snapped up for fashion shoots all over the world. We were so fortunate to have a chance to work with her! 
Hair (Day 2) was by Ry-n (above in rock star mode on location). 
I am honored to have been a part of the two day shoot and workshop with beautiful models, stylists, hair stylists and only a dozen fellow photographers from around the country. It was a small enough group to have constant contact with Lara and to ask questions as well as share information as pros. 

Lara Jade Workshop was organized by Matt Alvarado and Lara Jade

Kaanapali Weddings - Ashley + Josh by Aubrey Hord Photography

Ashley and Josh's tropical Maui wedding was held at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel on the Molokai Lawn with a beautiful ocean view and Maui sunset. It was a perfect venue and day for a destination wedding on the island. The bride wore a gorgeous strapless mermaid gown with a white orchid in her hair and some fabulous open toed sequined heels (wow)!

 The boys wore matching cream suits with white shirts and slippers (of course!).
The colors Ashley chose were a delicate pale pink and soft cream with rose petals in the aisle. 
 As the sun set and the moon rose over the West Maui Mountains, the couple shared their first dance with the palms swaying above and the moon up in the night sky. Thanks to the hotel staff, coordinator Madie Rabago and the photography team with me for the evening, Sasha and AnnaMarie!

We took off on an adventure a couple days later with the couple down to Makena Cove on Maui on the south side of the island for a little romance. We had beautiful weather and picture perfect conditions for shooting with the black lava and the blue water. Thanks to AnnaMarie for assisting on this one. She did some 4-wheeling to help me get great shots!

 The two were good sports and tried the juice from a fresh Maui coconut to see if they liked it. Ummmm,  judging from the photo not so much!

 The rings along with the the couple's favorite bible passage. Looks like a marriage full of fun and romance! Congratulations and best wishes to Ashley and Josh!

Thank you so much for inviting Aubrey Hord Photography to be a part of your day! We were honored! 

A hui hou.
