Katie & Mika: Kauai Wedding at Plantation Gardens

Mar 28, 2014  |  Posted by: Megan Stay

It is always an honor and a privilege to photograph friend’s weddings. I absolutely love to photograph and tell love stories, so when a friend asks me to do that for them I am over the moon excited to celebrate with them in such an important way.

I’ve known Katie since kindergarten. That’s 25 years, folks! Not too many people have friends for that long, but I have quite a few that I can count up to 25 years of friendship with. Katie is one of those people that will always make you laugh and is the most kind and thoughtful. She met Mika when they were in college together in San Diego. And lucky her, he’s from Kauai!

The two have been inseparable for years, but wasn’t able to meet Mika until we arrived for the wedding festivities in Hawaii! He’s as great a man as Katie deserves, and more. They are such a great match and I’m so very glad that we were able to attend the wedding and photograph it. I was definitely not used to such high humidity. With the heat and being 6 months pregnant I was a little slow moving but with the help of my fabulous assistant husband, Sir Luke, I was able to capture a gorgeous day filled with sunshine, a little rain, and lots of love.
