ku’u lei: island chic engagement inspiration

Highlighting Oahu’s beautiful and lush Ko’olau Mountain Range was a must for the second inspiration shoot in the Ku’u Lei series. Conceptualized and photographed by Chelsea of Bit of Ivory Photography and Orchestrated Stylized Shoots, it’s a lightly stylized love session with two of my dear friends – Jose and Nick – modeling for it!

Vintage lawn games and a hat were used as props and helped convey the casual island chic vibe we were going for and with the clouds rolling over the mountains, this shoot truly couldn’t be any more stunning! Did you notice Jose’s amazing Hawaiian Islands tattoo? I just love it.
