Aloha, and welcome to Julia Bach Photography, Hawaii Photography Blog

Not every photographer is lucky enough to call Hawaii his or her studio. The Islands provide some of the most dramatic and beautiful backdrops for a wedding, family portrait, or event. From lush tropical rainforests, to expansive sunsets, being a Hawaii photographer on the island of Oahu is certainly living Aloha (the breath of life).

Bride and Father of the Bride enter the Photo of the kiss during a wedding ceremony at  Saint John Vianney Parish to begin her wedding ceremony

I haven’t had many opportunities to shoot weddings in Kailua and Kaneohe, Hawaii. I felt so privileged to be a part of Kristen and Ryan’s wedding, and to be able to capture the majestic beauty of Kaneohe Bay and Hawaii’s famous and tragically beautiful Ko’olau mountains.  Kristen and Ryan’s wedding took place at a beautiful Catholic church, Saint John Vianney Parish in the heart of Kailua, and their reception at the YWCA Kokokahi on Kaneohe Bay.  The surroundings were incredible. Even though the east side of Hawaii quickly looses its sunlight in the early evening, somehow the warm sunlight was able to trickle through the Ko’olau Mountains and illuminate the passion and joy that this amazing couple has for each other. Their joy, happiness and quiet gentleness to each other was so easily captured in camera.
