A few days after the Sunset beach ceremony, I met up with Isabella and Ryan at Waimea Bay for some underwater pictures.  I still can’t believe she jumped off the rock in her dress!  It made for some fun photos and they are a beautiful couple.  Often these kinds of sessions are called “trash the dress” sessions, but I think there’s got to be a better phrase out there- anybody know one?

    Gorgeous couple, love his tatoos! Lately I have heard “Rock the Dress” which sounds so much better!

  6. Oh my gosh! I love it. I’ve also featured this on my blog as part of a post on dramatic TTD shoots.
