Hawaii Jungle Swimwear Editorial


When I found out film photographer and kindred spirit Rachel Thurston was shooting an elopement in Maui, I decided to pull together a shoot for the fun of it/ creative fulfillment/ possible publication. Within a three day timeframe we found a model (Maya) and scooped up a few bikinis from Zara and decided to leave the location till the day-of (weather is always an issue). It turned out to be a rainy Haiku day but we still piled into my truck and took the bumpy dirt road to my friend's waterfall above Twin Falls. Maya brought her best friend Kirstin and they splashed around in the fresh water pool. Pose inspiration boards pictured above.
