This Free Spirit Takes Kauai - Day 1 & 2

Helloooo friends!! Wow I can't believe that my trip to Kauai has already come and gone!! It was so incredible to be able to get out of winter--even though you guys had killer spring-like temperatures while I was away--be able to soak up some much needed heat + humidity, and catch up with one of my best friends! I've been trying to make an effort this year to document my personal life more than I have in the past, and in doing so, I tried to shoot with my DSLR almost everyday while on vacation. Originally, I wanted to post images from each day as they happened as a sort of "follow us around" blog series, but seeing as Meg didn't have internet at her house ;) I wasn't able to stick to that original plan. kaihla_tonai_intimate_wedding_elopement_photographer_0742

Instead of sharing all of the images in one post, I thought I'd break them up into one or two day segments to give my trip a bit more fluidity. As always, these are a mix of DSLR & iPhone snaps that were captured while in Hawaii. I'm gonna let the images do most of the talking, but if you have any questions about what you're seeing, leave a question/comment down below and I'll explain/answer! Since I got into Kauai at 3PM the first day, I crammed day 1 & day 2 together in this post; much like every day over there, it consisted of beaches, beer, photoshoots, and unbelievable sunsets. Feel free to check back every day thisΒ week for a new post with more images!!
