Adriane & Clyde
Kingdom Hall Wedding
Its been a busy summer so far with lots of weddings on the books but a certain aspect of Adriane and Clyde’s wedding was something I was looking forward to. The alarm on my iPhone went off in my bedroom, it was 3:00am. With my gear already packed in the truck the night before it took me a few minutes to get ready and out the door I went. Makakilo was the destination I was heading to where Adriane and her bridesmaids were getting ready.
It was my first time photographing morning prep before the sun had even come up and I’d have to say I actually enjoyed it. Not because I had the gear for low light situations but because controlling light without the sun lighting the whole room making everything flat was just great all around. Nevertheless, I was there to capture moments first and foremost.
Hanging out with the ladies and videographer Philip Lemoine from SVP Studios made it a fun and memorable morning. Heading out a few hours later we made our way over to the old Ewa Railroad Station and Museum for Adriane and Clyde’s first look and then explored some surrounding spots for their couple photos. We’d eventually make our way over to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovahs Witnesses where Adriane and Clyde would tie the Knot.
We ended the day off with a bang at Hawaii Prince Golf Course…literally! Clyde decided he wanted to crash the reception by accidentally knocking over a tall glass vase which shattered all over the dance floor…he received cheers and huge applause for that. In all it was another great experience sharing this day with an amazing couple.
