Documentary Vow Renewal Photography on Maui

Updated: Jan 8

Love at first sight…It’s a cliche that doesn’t actually fit into many people’s love story. With Brandon and Melissa, however, it is exactly how he describes the first time he met his now-wife, Melissa. The two met at a mutual friend’s house in 2002 when they were just 19. Later that night, when Brandon got home, he told his female roommate about the amazing woman he met who he hoped would one day be his wife. Turns out, that roommate was Melissa’s best friend!

With some plotting between Brandon and his roommate and much persistence on Brandon’s part, Melissa and Brandon were soon dating and fell in love. The pair dated for several years while Melissa was in college. They got pregnant with their first child, daughter Mackenzie, when Melissa was 22. At 23, once she had graduated college, the couple sealed the deal and married. In 2010, they completed their family with the addition of son, Cole.

As the couple’s 10-year anniversary approached, they knew they wanted to celebrate in a big way. They both were very proud of what they had accomplished as a family and wanted their kids to see them renew their vows.
