A Ko'olau Ballrooms Hawaiian Wedding

With the backdrop of the Ko'olau Mountain Range, Karli and Max exchanged vows in front of their family and friends with a beautiful Hawaiian wedding. What started out to be a typical sunny day in Hawaii turned quickly to epic rain! Not allowing it to dampen her day, Karli was totally okay with moving her ceremony indoors. After family formals were finished, the weather cleared enough for us to head outside for portraits and catch some waterfalls wedding shots. This gorgeous Hawaiian wedding is definitely a dream!

1. Language

Of course, loving their work is one thing but actually being able to easily communicate with your photographer on your wedding day is imperative. You'll be with them all day and you'll want to be able to communicate the photos you want so nothing is missed. Schedule a Skype or FaceTime session or even a phone call with your destination wedding photographer before booking them for your wedding day to ensure communication and language won't be an issue.

2. Photography Style

There are so many styles of photography out there from vibrant colors to muted, warm or cool tones, posed or spontaneous...and the list goes on. No one style is better than another -- the best style is the style YOU love.

Browse not one wedding, but many of their weddings. Browse full wedding features to ensure you love the variety they have to offer. And most of all, make sure you love their work.

Ask for bride referrals and ask for vendor references and talk to as many people as you can to ensure you're booking someone reliable. If someone has 100 amazing reviews, then most likely, you've found a good one.
