A mutual friend of ours introduced us just a few months ago (thank you Alex!) and it was literally love at first sight. We clicked instantly and knew we would be long time friends. We've been inseparable ever since and it's been one of the many gifts I've been given here in Seattle in just a short amount of time.
We've become so close in fact, that she invited me to shoot a wedding with her in Hawaii where she spends half her time (other half in Seattle). I bought a ticket immediately and flew off to meet her in Maui.
// There was no way I was going to leave that island though without shooting this gorgeous woman amongst the water where she grew up.
A princess born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii who has not only stolen my heart, but also every person that sees her walk by. That face, that body. Girl, stop it (jay k, don't stop).
Cheers to friendship and finding soulmates of all calibers no matter where you are in the world. Chelsea Abril, everyone.
