Between the guest list, designing invites, and the dress fittings, let's face it, planning for your big day can be a bit overwhelming. With the hundreds of things on your check-list you're looking to get done, there's an underestimated yet essential key to your wedding that you'll be thankful you were well-prepared for. Your professional wedding photography

 

The artists of Coral by Pacific Dream Photography are here to provide you with a team of professionals to ensure we give you all the preparations needed for a collection of memories you won't soon forget. 

 

Collect Ideas with an Open Mind

If you're like a handful of ecstatic bride-to-bes, you've most likely started your Pinterest board to start browsing for your wedding inspiration. While looking for decor, color palettes, and dresses, pay attention to the photography you come across and notice if something catches your eye. Getting ideas can beneficial, but keep reminding yourself that they might not turn out exactly like you had envisioned. Be open to trusting your photographer! Ultimately, the professional photographer you hire knows what will look best, but chances are they're willing to try an idea for a photo that you might have your heart set on. 

 

 

Make a Shot List for Your Photographer

Bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, grandma and grandpa, there's typically quite a variety of wedding party and family members that you'd love to capture group photos with. Sit down with your future husband/wife and create a shot list together to establish the photos you know you'll be wanting for the day off. It's okay to mix up combinations while in the moment (chances are you might get some photo bombers here and there from your wedding party), but make sure you have a flexible outline of the priority shots you won't want to miss. Go over the list with your photographer before the big day and rest easy knowing you won't miss a memory!

 

Take Your Couple Portraits Privately

It's the day that you two have been planning for months now and you wouldn't want any stress on your face to show through the photos! If time permits, pull your soulmate aside for a quick walk with just the two of you before you begin your portraits with family and friends. Bring your photographer with you and let them capture you two privately without the pressure of by-standers watching. By doing this, you're both allowing yourselves to sink into being present together. The photos will feel more carefree, effortless, and natural and you'll be thankful for having those few extra moments of privacy on your big day before returning to the fun and excitement!

 

HAVE FUN!

Here at Coral by Pacific Dream Photography, we would love to capture your special day with the same enriched beauty that your perfect day will hold.

CAN WE JUST SAY WE LOVE WHAT WE DO!

All of the Hawaiian Islands have those little things that make them so special. Each Island has it own unique feel from the next one. I think that is what I love so much about what we get to do. We have the greatest jobs in the world. We get to live on these beautiful islands and hang out with people on the most happy day of their life and tell their beautiful love story. This is another one of those amazing days with a great couple on the Island of Kauai at the Sheraton Kauai

Beautiful wedding at Andaz Maui at Wailea

This was such a fun wedding for our team. We had two photographers and two videographers covering Ben and Christy's big day at The Andaz Maui. There were so many fun and touching moments at their wedding. From the first moment Christy's father saw her in her gorgeous wedding dress. All the way to the end with the heart felt and amazing toast from everyone. We love when we get to work as a team to help tell the story of Ben and Christy's destination wedding on Maui, Hawaii. Thank you for letting us be apart of your big day.
