not that we ever need an excuse to go to hawaii, but when morgan contacted us and asked if we’d be on oahu when she was we got all smiley and pulled up hawaiianair.com with the quickness. the dates all worked out and we were on oahu the same time as morgan and her man mike. we met up near the beautiful evil empire known as the turtle bay resort to catch some shots of them enjoying the awesomeness that is oahu’s north shore. for everyone that goes to oahu and never leaves downtown waikiki, this is just a tiny peek into some of the beauty that you’re missing. morgan and mike can testify. it’s pretty sweet.
let me add to that by saying it’s pretty sweet… just the way it is. without the addition of any more hotels, condos, or malls. (hint hint greedy developers.) we saw a hand made sign while driving on the north shore that pretty much sums up our feelings about it.
“nuff hotels already!”
if you want to “keep the country country” so future generations can enjoy at least a little bit of unspoiled oahu, please contact the defend oahu coalition and ask what you can do to help. and that’s all i’m gonna say about that.
getting back to our lovely couple, morgan and mike had us smiling behind our lenses throughout our session with them. morgan is not only beautiful, she’s also a talented photographer. if you have a minute or two, surf over to her site and say hey.
thank you so much mike and morgan for asking us to do your portraits, and for bending to our will a little.
moms, dads, and grandparents should put a picture of mike and morgan in your head right now from when they were 7, then just go ahead and skip this next sentence.
mike and morgan, maybe next time we’ll get you to ditch the shirt mike, then have you both roll around in the waves and steam up the ocean like the lava hitting the water over on the big island.
welcome back parents of all ages. you didn’t miss anything important. we were just discussing how we couldn’t believe that a gallon of milk cost $7 in hawaii, and a gallon of gas cost $3.25. good thing cars don’t run on milk.
ok, i’ve rambled long enough. let’s get on with the morgan and mike show.
i love these shots.
morgan wasn’t lost at the lost tree. we knew exactly where she was.
mike had us all rolling. i think this series had something to do with how he became the beautiful butterfly that he is today.
here’s my favorite shot of the day. thank you trade winds.
this is what a wave looks like without 50 surfers on it. take note southern california.
thank you again for having us out mike and morgan. the time shared with you was a great part of our trip. we hope you enjoyed your trip and got to see everything you wanted. no matter how many days you spend in hawaii, it never seems to be enough. not sure if you got a chance to see bishop museum mike, but if not , you have a reason to go back. i love that place. sorry morgan. don’t kill me. tell you what, mike and i can go to the museum all day, and kim will take you to the beach all day. how’s that for a win win for everyone? so, when are we all going back? aloha!
