One of the things I love about the photography community is the tight network of friends you can make along the way. Last September, I attended a Boheme Workshop in Greece, and one of the creators/teachers was the fabulous Tahnee (of Celsia Floral and Once Wed fame). It’s funny because while we met in Greece, Tahnee is actually from Australia, but lives in Canada, and now we got to meet up for a photo shoot in Hawaii. Truly global friends! :)

This past June, Tahnee and her family happened to be making a trip to Oahu for her mom’s birthday, so we met up for a little photo shoot on the beach!

Tahnee’s one of those lovely people who’s so warm and welcoming, happily chatting it up with you and making you feel like you’ve been friends for years even if you’ve only just met. And she’s incredibly talented! From floral designer to social media genius, she wears a lot of hats in the wedding world. Tahnee’s husband Jono is her perfect match — smiling, silly, and personable. These two together are a photographer’s dream… During our session, they just laughed and played, allowing me to simply act as a fly-on-the-wall and shoot.

So glad to know these folks ♡

Oahu, Hawaii Elopement Photography: C + J Tie The Knot

These two newlyweds came all the way from Canada to celebrate their (secret) elopement, and I was lucky enough to document a part of their international love story here in Hawaii.

C & J are high school sweethearts whose love story spans over a decade, and I don’t know about you, but I think such a beautiful love story deserves a beautiful back drop :) With that in mind, we headed to the southern tip of Oahu, shooting their sunset elopement photos at two picturesque spots near Honolulu: one was a unique set of cliffs on the edge of the ocean with a swirling rock formation, and the second was your classic Hawaiian beach, complete with soft white sand and deep black volcanic rocks creating little tide pools.

Every time I look at C & J’s photos I swoon. It’s so easy to see the deep connection that these two have and I wanted to make sure to translate that love into their photos ♡

If you’re looking for an elopement photographer on Oahu, Hawaii, I’d love to chat about photographing you and your sweetheart! Whether you’re planning a large destination wedding or an intimate elopement, contact me and let’s talk about your love story :)

For this real couple’s shoot at the recent Boheme Workshop in Messinia, Greece we had two words in mind: Intimacy and simplicity. I wanted to show that engagement photography can be romantic and sexy without being too over the top. And today I’m so honored to have this shoot featured over at the international wedding blog, Hochzeitsguide!

Check out the full post here.

Inspired by both Goddess Gaia, the Greek goddess of the earth and devotion, and Goddess Eros, the goddess of love, we chose to cut out the frills and focus solely on the authentic connection that Alex and Catherine — a global couple with roots in Romania and Greece — have for each other.

Alex and Catherine have so much natural, subtle chemistry. You could see it in the way they moved together: he would move his hips into hers as they embraced, she would reach for his hand as they walked, or (when they thought I wasn’t looking) they’d snuggle close and whisper, smiling to each other as they did. It was such a joy to photograph them.

I hope this shoot inspires other madly-in-love couples to trust that their love alone often makes the best photographs.

It’s official! After two years on living on the road, I will be heading back to the States at the end of the year! The last stop on my international adventure is Puerto Escondido, Mexico in November, and from there David and I plan to visit my family in Las Vegas, Nevada and Salt Lake City, Utah over the holidays before making our way back to Oahu, Hawaii in January 2016!

Then we plan to stay put in Hawaii for a while. Like, for the foreseeable future…which is a big change from our monthly country moving schedule. I’m so excited!

I can’t believe we’re going to be starting “real life” soon! Car payments? Retirement savings? What are these adult things you speak of? It’s been so nice to have our extended honeymoon, but we both feel like it’s time to start settling down. So Hawaii it is! Poor us, huh? ;)

In the meantime, our move home means that I’m now accepting bookings for 2016 Hawaii weddings! Whether you’re traveling thousands of miles across the ocean for a dreamy destination wedding or planning a casual wedding in your own family’s backyard, I’m your gal for Hawaii wedding photography!

If you’re not ready to book your wedding vendors just yet, I’d love to be your Hawaii engagement photographer. Check out this pretty couple’s session I recently shot in Germany for an idea of my style, then read a rave review from another one of my lovely couples.

So if you’re looking for a photographer in Hawaii, I’d love to chat! Message me with a little information about you and your sweetheart through my contact page or send an e-mail to alexisrosephoto@gmail.com.

Hanna + Daniel: Engagement Photography in Bad Urach, Germany

Hanna + Daniel: Engagement Photography In Bad Urach, Germany

The best part about travel is the people you get to meet along the way. And here in Germany, our current monthly country home, I had the pleasure of getting to know Daniel and Hanna: newlyweds, world travelers, and fellow wedding photographers living in Stuttgart.

These two are some of the most genuinely sweet people I’ve ever met. I had been on a search to find models for a photo shoot in Baden-Württemberg, and when I posted a link in a wedding photographer’s Facebook group saying as much, Hanna immediately sent me a message. Turns out she and her husband grew up right in this area and were now living just an hour away! Even though they’re already married, she offered to pop on down to Bad Urach for a day to let me shoot them in a faux-engagement session. And since they’re photographers as well, they even offered to shoot my husband David and me (I mean, talk about being above and beyond awesome!)

So on a warm Sunday evening, David and I met up with Daniel and Hanna out in a beautiful field near Bad Urach Waterfall, dressed in our best and ready to shoot.

Hanna and Daniel are a photographer’s dream couple: they’re always laughing and smiling with each other, and it’s clear that they are genuinely in love. It was such a joy to capture those moments — a touch of the arm here, a loving glance there — on camera. And the fact that it all happened outdoors with the softest, most beautiful evening light? Couldn’t have been better for a natural light photographer like me.

Thanks, Hanna and Daniel, for letting me document a little piece of your love story!

Sneak Peek: Hanna + Daniel in Bad Urach, Germany

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of getting together with Hanna and Daniel — the sweetest husband and wife photography team based here in southern Germany — and setting up a faux-engagement photography shoot out in the gorgeous fields of Bad Urach.

Here’s a sneaky little teaser just to pique your interest…

Janny + Philip: Engagement Photography in London, England

Janny + Philip: Engagement Photography In London, England

Who says Paris is the only city of love? I’d say London, England is pretty darn romantic. My husband and I moved to London on New Year’s Eve 2013 and spent the next four months calling a little shared flat in Westminster home. Since the biggest thing on my agenda at the time was planning my own destination wedding in Hawaii, I had a lot of free time to kill and a photography portfolio to build. One day I decided to ask on reddit whether any London couples would like some engagement photos taken in the city.

These globetrotting lovebirds got back to me.

With roots in Malaysia and New Zealand, Janny and Philip are traveling the world together and spending a few years living in the U.K. before their wedding. You can tell instantly after meeting them that they’re best friends. They were bubbly and lovey-dovey throughout the entire shoot, allowing me a little look into their lives together. Isn’t that the best part about documentary engagement photography? You get a sneak peek into how people act when it’s just them two.

We must have walked a few miles around London that spring day…wandering around downtown in search of the best light, the best locations, the best moments. In the end, I think we got some pretty romantic, sun-drenched engagement photographs…just the way I like ’em ;)

These days, I still love hearing about all the new adventures these two go on: from a recent trip to Norway to an upcoming trip to NYC, they are some nomadic sweethearts who I’m proud to call friends.

Thanks, Janny and Philip for being my FIRST couple and thanks for giving me a peek into your love story. Cannot wait until your big day!
