When you combine beautiful, fun people with a scenic setting like Hawaii… you get a cinematic masterpiece. I’m proud to say that Amy and Rob’s Sandbox Love Signature Film is one of the best we’ve made.
Sandbox Love was lucky enough to be picked by Amy and Rob to capture their multi-day wedding event in Hana, Hawaii. Amy and Rob rented out the whole Travaasa resort for 5 days to create a feeling of intimacy for their wedding guests. The first day Vitalie and I arrived in Hawaii, we couldn’t help but start shooting immediately. On the drive to Hana, we decided to take the long way around, to get a bunch of scenic island footage. We checked in at Travaasa and met up with the wedding party at their Thursday night Luau which was an event I’ll never forget. Hula dancers, fire dancing, and a dance party right on the ocean. It was a rager.
The next day was a beachside chill sesh. Amy, Rob, and their friends got together to enjoy the sun and relax. Equipped with boogie boards, shaved ice, and frisbees…there was plenty to do. Definitely a day activity done right. That evening was the Rehearsal Dinner back at the resort where the main hall was decked out in candle light. Our cameras really couldn’t get enough of the beauty. And of course, all the other events were blown out of the water by the Wedding Day. You can tell from the film that every single detail was perfect.
It was said at the Rehearsal Dinner that Amy and Rob have surrounded themselves with loyal, wonderful, caring people. And we could really feel it while we were there. Everybody we met welcomed us into the experience of the wedding, which allowed us to get moments we wouldn’t have got otherwise.
We also got to work with an ALLSTAR wedding staff for this. The event was put together by Marianna Weiman-Nelson who owns Special Occasions in Beverley Hills. I’m incredibly impressed by the staff there (Tabitha and Bill). We also got to work along side one of the world’s best photographers, Jose Villa, which was an absolute pleasure. Lastly, we have to thank the people of Hana who must be some of the sweetest, most accommodating people I’ve ever met. You really don’t find people like that anywhere else.
