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).

Engagement Session in Hawaii Kai Oahu

As a photographer, I am blessed to be able to catch a glimpse into the love and life of a couple or family. I am always seeking that raw and unadulterated love that is shared between couples on a daily basis, and Sai and Alana was one of the most tangibly visible examples of that.

Fate brought Sai and Alana together about 5 years ago, when both were young and working at Aloha Salads.  They immediately felt an intense connection and have been inseparable since. Years later, their romance has only grown in intensity, evidenced by tender moments, and stolen glances that made me consider giving them a moment alone. ;)

The location of the shoot, a ridge hike and beach park in Hawaii Kai, recreated their first date together. While the ridge hike had a breathtaking 360 of Hawaii’s mountains, ocean, and sunset, its main attraction was sentimental. We finished up with an amazing sunset at their favorite beach park where they often go to spend time together. Couldn’t be happier for this couple.
