Waimea Plantation Cottages

A dreamy destination wedding at Waimea Plantation Cottages.

This gorgeous wedding brings together everything that I love about being a wedding photographer – pristine beaches, gorgeous sunny glow, and tropical vibes. If you’ve been dreaming about eloping in Hawaii – let me tell you I am 100% in support of that decision! I’ve truly never seen a place so lush, beautiful, and romantic. If you haven’t ever heard of the island of Kauai, you’re missing out on something amazing!

Take a trip down this romantic and tropical-inspired wedding editorial shoot on the gorgeous south side of the island. Waimea Plantation Cottages are an amazing 43 acres of tropical paradise!
