It’s not every day we feature an underwater wedding shoot on Polka Dot Honeymoons, but this one, with it’s ethereal mood, Stu & Malia Photographers sent this shoot our way after capturing Jess & Ka’eo’s wedding in Fiji.
Photographer Malia explains. “Living in Fiji and being surfers and wedding photographers we have always seen the beauty that is under breaking waves in crystal clear water! So we’ve wanted to get a bride and groom under the waves for a while now. This type of shoot takes a special couple who are not only strong swimmers, but also comfortable in the surf! As soon as we were booked to shoot Jess & Ka’eo’s wedding, we knew they were the perfect couple! Both grew up in and around the ocean and have the deepest respect for it, and love to surf!
Jess and Ka’eo are both from Hawaii but live in Fiji part of the year managing Tavarua Island. They love the ocean and love to surf. They had a beautiful wedding on Tavarua with their closest friends and family. Once their friends and family left Fiji, we were able to wait for a perfect day with just the right conditions for our shoot. We met Jess & Ka’eo out at Cloudbreak for the session so they arrived in style from Tavarua on a Jetski! ” To complete the shoot, the team worked with Lisa Gowing to choose a gown that would embody the romantic, dreamy feel of the shoot.
