We had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with our good friends The Kozama’s. They were celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary and Marcelo’s Birthday! A lot of happiness, excitement and love poured out of these images. We were talking later that evening about how fast time goes by, and I mentioned in our last blog about my parents how photography is an incredible way to capture those moments you want to hold onto forever. The saying I chose above captures the feeling this photo shoot had… you can see it in their body language and eyes how much these two love each other and how devoted they are to one another. We can’t forget the third member of the Kozama family, Brother! He wanted to be in all of the shots!
The location where these photos were taken holds a deep meaning to Ocean Allies and also to Christy and Marcelo. Kapalua or Honokahua are rich in Hawaiian Culture and history. Hawaiians believe that from such a place ancestor spirits continue to lovingly watch over the land and its people. The area is now carpeted with lush grass and bordered by native naupaka bushes. Also at the site is a portion of the 16th Century Alaloa or King’s Trail, a footpath that once encircled the island. While shooting at these locations you can’t help yourself from standing in awe of your surroundings.
Thomas and I are so thankful for the friends and family that we have in our lives and look forward to helping them solidify those memories through images that can last a lifetime.
Hau`oli la Ho’omana’o, Happy Anniversary Christy and Marcelo!!
