When your best friend is saying I do, the first thing you do is jump on a flight to photograph their breathtaking Kauai elopement at Tunnels Beach. The moment Kelly told me they were heading to Kauai, Hawaii, I knew their elopement would to be special. They followed her parent’s tradition by kicking tradition out the window. Why not head to their favorite place for private vows?

We started at the parking lot and met their officiant at the beach! Then, he performed a beautiful ceremony filled with honor and hawaiian culture. It was so incredible with the perfect backdrop! After their vows + a few portraits, Kelly and Alex changed into their bathing suits and we went for a little swim. The only request from Kelly for this day! Afterwards, we headed to a little hold in the wall bar for bottomless mai thais + local music. We’ll keep those pictures for our own memories 😉
