A perfect day for a Luau ...

The first week Josh and I moved to Destin, I was asked to shoot this amazing Luau for our new church down here !! It was so much fun. The church wanted to have a head-shot for each woman and their gift to them was a 5x7 for each lady from Amandasuanne.com. How awesome is that?

There were about 250 woman at the event, and yep I did 250 head-shots while shooting all the fun things going on! Talk about a long day. It was seriously worth it though, I met tons of amazing woman and found my self smiling a lot because there were so many cool moments....

Here is a little peek at some of the head-shots I took!

After the sun went down, these two ladies performed a beautiful Hawaiian dance to the song "Shout to the Lord" it was so beautiful and really spoke to me.
