Blissfully In Love – Sheng & Jennifer’s Big Island Trash The Dress Portrait

October 12, 2023


Join us on an adventure with Sheng and Jennifer, a couple whose love for travel and tropical destinations brought them together. From exploring bustling cities to immersing themselves in vibrant art scenes, their shared passions have created a deep bond. After a unique underwater proposal in Okinawa, they knew that their dream wedding should be an intimate elopement on the beautiful island of Hawaii. And what a romantic celebration it was! The day after their nuptials, they booked a Big Island Trash-the-dress portrait session with our sister company, Karma Hill Photography!

While Sheng and Jennifer had a wonderful wedding celebration, they wanted to capture an extra special, fun, and playful moment the day after their ceremony. Their adventurous spirits led them to jump right into the water and “trash the dress.” With Jennifer fearlessly diving into the ocean with her new husband, the waves and sand became their playground. The pure joy and love on their faces were evident, capturing a truly carefree and romantic moment!

Carefree Newlywed Bliss

Having a portrait session in the ocean right after getting married is nothing short of romantic. As the waves crashed around them, Sheng and Jennifer felt a sense of liberation and freedom. The stunning blue sky reignited their love and made them feel like they were on cloud nine. The ocean became a symbol of their journey, reminding them of the vastness of their love and the endless possibilities ahead!

The connection between Sheng and Jennifer was palpable during their ocean portrait session. With each splash and laugh, their bond grew stronger. Being in the water allowed them to let go of any inhibitions and fully embrace the moment, creating a magical memory that they will cherish forever…
