This was one of my most memorable weddings I have shot. This couple was from Japan and hardly spoke english. They were so polite and nice. Just after I met the couple the wedding coordinator from the Four Seasons Resort on Lanai told me that the bride had stage 4 cancer. She was not expected to live for over a year. Now to me the photos of this wedding were more important than ever. We went a bit over the top and I asked them if they wanted to do some out of the box shots. We had so much fun and they loved their photos. It was two years after the wedding that I got word that she had passed away. The groom sent me a note telling me how much they loved their wedding photos and how she looked at them every day. I was so honored to be part of their special day and to be able to tell their story.
