A Bohemian Holiday Shoot

Though I'm behind on blogging, I had to share this holiday shoot while it was still in season! We teamed up with Opihi Love Boutique Rentals & Event Design to create a bohemian bridal shoot with holiday inspiration. Melissa of Opihi Love is incredibly talented and offers an unbelievable inventory of unique decor and rentals. If you are planning on getting married on Maui and want a wedding with great personality, she's the gal to call. Of course the stunning couple and other incredible vendors helped a bit as well....

Patrick & Erin: A Swiss Alps Wedding

As I seem to subtly state in each blog post these days, I am terrible at keeping up on blogging. We have SO many fabulous weddings this year to share but are fighting for the opportunity to do so. We've been excited to share this wedding we shot this summer in Switzerland for some time now and the day has finally arrived! These two were married in a tiny little village in the heart of the Swiss Alps in an ancient church and yours truly (that'd be me and Jonathan) travelled halfway across the world to capture the nuptials.

Let me just preface: Erin & Patrick are adventurers. We were particularly pleased with this trait of theirs when we heard the predictions of rain. To say it rained a bit, is beyond an understatment. We are not talking of a dainty sprinkle or a dusting of rain, but rather torrential downpour. DOWNPOUR. Nevertheless they were troopers and even allowed us to photograph them outside amidst the disagreeable (to put it nicely) weather. I haven't quite been able to piece together why these photos don't reflect the floods pouring down from heaven--- but trust me, they were there. Yet, I quite feel the rain added a rustic romance to their day... what do you say?

Ben & Michelle: A Lilac & Lemonade Grand Wailea Wedding

Ben & Michelle were one of the most genuine couples we've ever met. From the start, their overwhelming appreciation for art and beauty confirmed we were a match made in heaven. Michelle is "that" girl with the infectious smile and Ben's disposition would win anyone's heart. Perhaps we are partial, but I'm not sure it's possible to look through these images and not fall in love with this couple.

 Here's to a fabulous team of vendors:

Jennifer & Joe at the Haiku Mill

You may recognize these two from their engagement session a few posts back. This beautiful couple planned a destination wedding in Maui to celebrate their new life together. Their traditional ceremony was followed by a Chinese Tea Ceremony with the exchanging of tea, jewelry and lucky red envelopes. We loved the incredible honor upheld in this tradition of serving their elders tea. The entire day with three dresses, two ceremonies and one couple was nothing short of enchanting.

Mary & Justin: A Stunning Haiku Mill Wedding

Mary & Justin's wedding this summer was a wedding we thoroughly enjoyed. Their adorable little family of three had such an amazing connection. From the romance of the Haiku Mill and the bride's elegant gown, down to the red lipstick, there was not a detail we weren't smitten with. As you will soon see, the Bride & Groom were certainly the stars of the show.

Amir & Laleh: An Upcountry Maui Bridal Shoot

Have I mentioned we love shooting ethnicity & exotic beauties? These two Persian lovebirds could not have had a sweeter disposition.

We were truly honored and enjoyed every second of it.

A Marie Antoinette Inspired Shoot at the Haiku Mill

A while back we had the opportunity to work with an INCREDIBLE team of vendors on a Marie Antoinette inspired bridal shoot. Outlets like this allow us all to come together, meet some incredible talent and best of all to use our creativity without limits! This shoot was so much fun to plan and it came together just perfectly in the secret garden setting of the Haiku Mill. One of our favorite parts of this shoot was the floor length tiered pettiskirt--- it was love at first sight. Another highlight was the cake made entirely of flowers! And how incredible is that hair? We are planning our next styled shoot and can't wait to share our next creative vision with you all. But for now, enjoy some eye candy...

A huge thanks to all the vendors involved:

Ryan & Stacey: A Haiku Mill Wedding

Another beauty at the Haiku Mill. We've decided it is absolutely impossible to not have an insanely beautiful wedding at that venue. This adorable couple were completely in love and had their reception at the Haiku Mill after being married in a Catholic ceremony. The bride's lovely veil was actually hand made by her talented brother or brides"man".  Take a look at all of their lovely details!

Tyler & Lori: A Northshore Maui Wedding

Tyler & Lori said "I do" in a bird sanctuary nestled among the majestic cliffs of Maui's Northshore. The wedding and reception was frequented by highly trained doves who perched upon demand and even took flight into the sunset upon cue. Meanwhile the peacock we discovered proudly unfolded its beauty before us and flaunted until we had our fill. Did I mention that the Bride was incredibly beautiful? Tyler, you weren't too bad yourself. Yet another magical day in the books of Tamiz Photography that left us breathless...

JJ & Carly: An Olowalu Plantation House wedding

JJ & Carly had the most adorable wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House.

Towards the end of the evening they had their friends and family write a special note on paper lanterns and release them into the air.

Creme De La Creme Part II

Recently we were referencing our post Creme de la Creme Part I, and as we searched for it's sequel we realized we never featured Creme de la Creme Part II! At first we decided it has been too long to go back into time---- and then we reconsidered and decided that this much beauty can't not be shared. Creme  de la  Creme is a luxury bridal show in Vancouver held at the Four Seasons Resort and hosted by Countdown Events. Everything about this event is dripping with beauty, glam and elegance. We are fairly certain that even their trash cans are diamond studded. One of the highlights of Creme de la Creme, is the bridal gown fashion show featuring all the latest gowns with Bisou Bridal & Blush Bridal. They even had a guest appearance of world renown florist Preston Bailey (which if you haven't seen his work be prepared to DIE). Such an incredible experience to be apart of --- we felt like paparazzi. If you live in Canada be sure to check out the show as it is an annual event that will far exceed your expectations. Perhaps we will even see you there :)

Michael & Elizabeth: A Local Maui Engagement Session

We were THRILLED at the opportunity to shoot a local engagement session. A vast majority of our weddings and sessions are from destination couples; we love to be able to serve so many cultures, walks of life and people that have a hunger for travel and adventure. HOWEVER, shooting a couple that is local to Maui and wants their session somewhere other than the beach (I'm not gonna lie, the beach can get a tad redundant), was so refreshing and inspiring. We traveled upcountry Maui which in my opinion is one of the most beautiful places that Maui has to offer! On top of it all they are completely in love! AND on top of THAT the light was amazingly beautiful and incredibly romantic. Have I mentioned we love our job?

Darren & Tabitha: A Day After Session at the Haiku Mill

Though I can't share their GORGEOUS wedding with you yet, Darren & Tabitha were the most lovely couple you could imagine. Documenting their love was so important to them that they scheduled a "day after" session at the Haiku Mill--- and we loved every second of it.

This unbelievably beautiful couple is one of our 2012 weddings lined up at the Haiku Mill. Better yet, they are coming all the way from Australia! We are thrilled to be able to capture the love that is so evident between them and can hardly wait for the wedding day.

Speaking of Australia... We are pleased to announce that we will be taking a side trip to the land of Oz on our way to Fiji and will be accepting one wedding during our stay. To find out more info, check out Polka Dot Bride who officially announced our coming!

First Features of the New Year

Alright, I know we've been M.I.A lately so I'll just apologize up front. Our lives have simply been spiraling rapidly out of control... no biggie! We have a busy year ahead full of many adventures and are trying to prepare for it all as best we can! I promise we have several weddings to share in the very near future, but for now we thought we would share a couple features.

We have the most wonderful Australian bride who will be bringing us out to Fiji to shoot her wedding. Though we've never met, we are already kindrid spirits--- you really can't help but to love her! She has decided to document her journey as she plans this destination celebration. Check out her blog post featuring us on Polka Dot Bride
This wedding was one of our favorite to date and we LOVE how beautifully Style Unveiled documented the event.
Lastly we were featured by the popular web design company Showit. Showit is what we used to build our customized website and we just love all they have to offer. Check out the video at the time 12:40 to hear their thoughts on our website. It's also pretty entertaining listening to them trying to pronounce our name. Come on people, its TUH-MEEZ.
