For Kyle and Renee’s wedding photos, we experienced the Pacifc island of Guam’s varied landscapes: We swam in the clear ocean and went down into a cave, then finished the session along the island’s famous limestone clifs. They’re an adventurous couple who love having fun together hiking, exploring and taking advantage of all the world has to ofer. To get to this spot, we drove down a remote, narrow road on the other side of the island. Once there, we walked along a dirt path through the jungle to a secluded cave.
Then we headed of to catch the last moments of sunset from the clif line along the northern peninsula, where the ocean stretched endlessly before us. The site is almost indescribable: Green vines cover rolling hillsides, and as the sun cast a golden glow, the only thing you could see was blue and green for miles and miles. It felt like Kyle and Renee were the only people on Earth at that moment. The magic of this place took our breath away.
