Pa'ako Fairytale  by Ken Wright

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Shot on Pa’ako Beach (AKA, Secret Cove, Wedding Beach) Makena, Maui. This was shot on the 16th May, the day before my 50th birthday and the day before our vow renewal ceremony to celebrate 25 years of marriage, and what better place to do it.

I don’t know this couple, all i new was the next night that would be us, fetched a lump to my throat, just seen the shots from our service, very choked up.

This is the perfect location for a wedding, couldn’t recommend it highly enough, check out Maui Wedding Planners they rock! and check out JJ Preston

and if you are up for it here is a sneak peak at our service Ken and Karen

Shot on a Nikon D700, 17-35mm Nikkor lens, Cokin ND8/2 grads, warming filter, processed in photomatrix and photoshop.

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i have recently moved to Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.
