Any excuse to put on the dress and twirl around in fields while someone like Lehua Noëlle snaps away is a good excuse to me. Day after sessions are just genius. You’re married, you have zero stress and you have a gown that just needs to be worn at least one.more.time. So why not get some gorgeous pictures out of the deal? That’s just what this adorable duo did, and the result is one pretty as can be full gallery!

From Lehua NoëlleChris and Mel were married in Hawaii, but this is actually a “day after session” a few months after their wedding ceremony. We went to the North Shore of Oahu to a few places that held special meaning for them. It was a very casual session, which was really great because there wasn’t any pressure — this was all post-wedding. They were definitely really relaxed, and we just enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and celebrating their love. I know that had fun getting into their wedding attire once again — I could tell there was quiet excitement in the air.
