Sandy and Ryan are some of the most authentic people I have ever met. After you have spent 30 seconds with them, they are exactly who you think they are…. and I absolutely loved that about them. Not only are the authentic, they will both give you the shirt of their back. These are the stories I love to tell. I was able to witness who they were from day 1 and it continued right on to their engagement session when I was able to photograph them sitting in the exact same seats they were sitting on for their first date.
I guess it should not have been a surprise to me that I was able to experience these same things on their wedding day. Every time I turned around Sandy and Ryan where asking if we had everything we needed and if Sandy and Ryan were busy, it was their family or friends who were asking us.
Sandy and Ryan, while you are enjoying Hawaii, I hope these photographs remind you of, well, you. It was honor to be a small part of your day and I thank you so much for being so genuine and authentic, you made my job easy!
