Courtney & Payton’s Love Story

When booking with me to capture their Kauai elopement, Courtney shared with me their love story! 

“Payton and I met at a wedding – I had flown back to Missouri from Seattle, WA to attend! I knew that night that I was going to marry Payton! We chatted over the phone for a few months until Payton visited me in the PNW. We had so much fun hiking in the mountains, adventuring, and exploring the state. Lots of prayer and direction from God on our next steps! After a year of long distance dating, I moved back to Missouri. He then later proposed underneath a waterfall at Dogwood Canyon in March and 6 months later – we are escaping to Hawaii to tie the knot.”

And their elopement doesn’t just look breathtaking; it was an incredible experience!  

The Best Locations Your Kauai Elopement 

For Courtney & Payton’s elopement, they had their ceremony at Hanalei Bay, celebrated afterwards on a boat on the Na Pali Coast, and took more elopement photography at Waimea Canyon. These are definitely some of the best locations for your Kauai elopement! Can you see yourself eloping here?  

Bonus Tip: Do a Day After Photoshoot!

If you are wanting a variety of elopement photos, you should do a photoshoot the day after your elopement as well! Courtney & Payton wanted to celebrate their marriage with their 10 guests without feeling rushed through wedding photos, so they took more elopement photos the next day at Waimea Canyon. Isn’t that a great idea? Not only will you get an amazing variety of photos, but you will have the opportunity to create more memories as you explore together as well!
