Teresa and Tui Auva'a



















What an amazing Family! I don't think anyone who has ever planned and executed a wedding for themselves or for a loved one is likely to forget how much work, time, blood, sweat and tears go into this special day. I often find myself counting my blessings on a wedding shoot that my only responsibility is to push my camera button...over and over and over again. I was hired to cover just a few hours of the wedding events, and it wasn't until Teresa thanked me and mentioned that I was still shooting that I even realized I'd been there for much longer than I'd planned. I truly honestly deeply enjoy what I do.....I'd have kept going all night were it not our anniversary too! (BIG SIX BAYBBEE). I have to mention something that I found comment worthy about this wedding .  Everyone got along very well. Both the Brides family and the Grooms family seemed to hit it off, so much that it felt like they'd been family for years. THANK YOU AUVA'A's and CLARKS! It was a pleasure!

I come to your site several times a day just to see if you have posted new stuff! This Bride looks absolutely gorgeous and I bet she is just thrilled that you took these pictures for her. You captured all the right moments in all the right ways. Great Job Oms. Love you!!
