Since creating a second life in Kauai, my shooting has suddenly become more dynamic! Engagement shoots are one thing … but proposals photographed guerrilla style from the bushes is a whole other monkey! The angst I feel! the things I get to see!!!
My first shoot ever accompanying one of Ann’s dinners was an honor that included a mess of excitement, adrenalin and everything that goes along with keeping a surprise a surprise and making one of the most important days of a person’s life EXCELLENT! Ruben thought of everything, a trip to Hawaii, the convertible, and of course….a surprise catered dinner for 2 on a private Kauai beach quietly protected by reef. A romantic Tikki lit table on a bed of sand dotted with lava rocks topped the day off with fine wine and a 4 course dinner of salad colored with edible flowers, lilikoi grilled shrimp, and as if a reward were necessary…. finished with grilled pineapple atop rum buttered banana confit comforted by a pillow of coconut ice cream, live fudge and raspberry decadence, chef’d by the amazing Ann Eu.
…oh…. and their own personal paparazzi…..
