When we first met Lei had been living on Maui for only a few weeks. We contacted her via Instagram, noticing she seemed graceful and confident in her water photographs, and approached her to model a wedding gown for us underwater.
From there, a friendship grew. We eventually photographed her wedding day and then, nearly five years after first meeting, we found our story came full circle as just weeks before our departure from Maui to return home to the Sunshine Coast. She joined us again on Maui and we photographed her just before sunset, this time underwater in her own wedding gown.
