Cathy + Ben. A Kauai, Hawaii Wedding.

One of the best reasons for being a wedding photographer is the relationship you build with your clients.  So many are MORE than clients, they are friends that I can email or call at anytime and grab a bite to eat with.  It's a wonderful feeling when a family asks you to come back to photograph the wedding of another member of the family.  Thats exactly what happened with Cathy + Ben's wedding.  Last fall I got to photograph the wonderful wedding of Cathy's sister, Kristine, in San Francisco.  I guess I did something right because a short time after Kristine received her pictures, Cathy emailed me to ask me to photograph her wedding.  Not only was I excited to be with their family again, but Cathy and Ben live in Kauai and they were having the wedding there at a beautiful botanical garden called Na 'Aina Kai.  From the moment I arrived I felt welcome and at home.  What a wonderful feeling it is to be remembered by so many family members.  Throughout the wedding, and related wedding events, people were coming up to chat with me about Kristine's wedding.  It's such a great feeling as a photographer to be recognized for that. 

So please enjoy a few of my favorite images from Cathy + Ben's wedding!
