Hey there, fellow photography enthusiasts! Let me tell you about this amazing place I recently discovered in Haleiwa, Hawaii - Waimea Valley. It's not just a park, it's a dreamy outdoor venue that's perfect for weddings and other special occasions. Trust me, the verdant botanical gardens and the array of indoor and outdoor spaces here will leave you in awe. It's truly a photographer's paradise! When it comes to facilities and capacity, Waimea Valley has got you covered. There are so many options to choose from! You've got the Amphitheater, the Main Lawn, Puhula, the Upper Meadow, and the Waterfall - all of them offering breathtaking backdrops for your special day. If you prefer a covered space, you can go for Hale Ho'ike or the Pikake Pavilion. And for those who want the whole celebration indoors, The Proud Peacock is a fully indoor option for receptions. Oh, and did I mention that this venue can accommodate up to 300 guests? Plus, they've got convenient parking and wheelchair-accessible features, so everyone can enjoy the festivities without any hassle.

“I purchased a photo session for my daughter-in-law as a baby shower gift, to be used for maternity or newborn photos (she chose maternity). The photos are magical - they perfectly capture their love story. Leah is a talented photographer who brings out the very best, and is so easy to work with. Both my son and daughter-in-law thoroughly enjoyed their session. If you're looking for a photographer, look no further. You won't be disappointed.”
