Allegra + Jonas {sneak preview}

When: March 2009
Where: Leeward, Oahu
What: Engagement Photo Session | WARNING: Image heavy post! :o)

I absolutely love love love shooting destination lifestyle portraits. In this case, it was also an engagement portrait session - so double bonus! Allegra was recently visiting Oahu from California for business, and of course this was a great opportunity for a small holiday also with her fiance, Jonas. They are not tying the knot until next year, but decided to get their engagement photographs done here in Hawaii.

It was hard to pick only a few to show as teasers because they both have a smile that would brighten most anyone's day, and before I knew it I had processed more than the usual number of preview images. (I should thank them though for being cooperative and smiling at all my corny jokes). Allegra and Jonas also were up for me trying some new off-camera lighting techniques after sunset. Yeah yeah, I'll admit it...I'm a fan of the inky blue sky in those shots.

Besides having stellar smiles, they both have amazing tattoos. Especially check out Jonas' tatt on his back - I'm ashamed to admit I was so busy composing the shot that I did not notice until later that it is an ambigram. How groovy is that?!?!
