Ryli + Blake | Eternity Beach Bridals
AFP Getaway Styled Shoot #1
Remember how I promised a whole lot of tropical photos on my blog for the next little bit? I’m just over here following through on that promise. Ryli and Blake were our models for the very first night on the #AFPgetaway. They were so wonderful and drove all the way from the North Shore on Ryli’s birthday to be our stunning “bride and groom”. Everything about this shoot was just so fun, and these two were made to be in front of the camera. We did this session at Eternity Beach which is just outside Honolulu. It was extremely windy during our shoot and the sea-spray made our lenses keep fogging up, but we still were able to get some killer shots. These two lovers were so willing to follow direction as we made them walk barefoot all along the rocky shore, twirl and dance, and do some low key rock climbing for us to get the shots we wanted. I think it’s safe to say everything they did was worth it, and we had such a blast shooting with them for this mock bridal session.
Earlier in the week I found out our florist fell through and we were scrambling to try and find a solution to our missing bouquet situation. I knew I wanted Ryli to be holding some tropical flowers during our session so I was determined to figure out a way to make it work. The morning of the shoot I headed to Paiko, a trendy flower shop in Honolulu and picked out several flowers myself for the bouquet. Between that and some foraged greenery we found on the side of the road (thanks Lynzee for being my drive by leaf stealer), we were able to assemble this bridal bouquet. It actually fit what I was wanting perfectly and I was pretty proud of our little creation! Maybe in another life I’ll be a florist. 😉
This was such a great way to start off the week at our AFP Getaway and it definitely set the bar high for the rest of the shoots to follow. A huge thanks to Ryli and Blake for being so wonderful to work with! Now scroll through a little bit of pretty and don’t be embarrassed to “oooh and ahhh” out loud.
