We're back from Hawaii! Thanks to all of our clients and prospective clients who have been patiently awaiting our return. We had such a great time and feel much more refreshed and ready to tackle the next wedding season! Stay tuned for more photos from our trip, including pics from northwest Maui, the Road to Hana, Haleakala, and whale watching. The photo above was taken at a lu'au we attended on our second night.

Our Amazing Race All-Star

We just found out that Dustin-Leigh, one of our brides from 2006, will soon be appearing on her second season of The Amazing Race, airing Sundays at 8:00 p.m on CBS. Dustin first participated in the show for Season 10 — which aired in August 2006, just a couple of weeks after their wedding — and teamed up with Kandice, one of her bridesmaids. Dubbed "The Beauty Queens" because Dustin was Miss California 2005 and Kandice was Miss New York 2005, the girls competed well, coming in fourth place and just barely missing the final stage.

This season they'll be competing in The Amazing Race All-Stars, racing against ten other teams who are also veterans of the show. We are so proud of Dustin and wish them both all the best of luck! She was one of the sweetest brides we've worked with and it's been so much fun to watch her journey. You can read about the girls and check their progress at www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race11.

We're about to head off to a much-needed vacation in Hawaii, but don't forget to tune in to CBS this Sunday!

Hannah and Mike's Engagement Pics

Over the weekend we spent a couple of hours taking engagement photos for two of our very dearest friends. Hannah and Mike will be getting married in April and we're can't wait to take part in the wedding!

Hannah and Mike recently moved back to the Pacific Northwest from L.A., so we decided a tour through downtown Tacoma would be a fitting celebration of their return. Mike and Hannah are a very fun-loving, energetic couple, as you can see here. We got so many great photos, it was hard to pick our favorite for the blog (so we went with Mike's favorite) ... you can check out the full set at www.wallflowerphoto.com/aoyagi
