I loved this set! Reply Frank Amodo is the photographer. Reply Thanks, Libby! I've updated the post to include credit to Frank and a link to his website. Stunning work. Reply The bride is gorgeous! I love her hair and and, of course, her tattoos! ps- This looks like the same location as Sun & Jin's wedding on LOST. It is soo beautiful! Reply You're right! I totally LOVE Lost. This was a beautiful and serene looking wedding! Reply It is. It's Valley of the Temples on Oahu. It is a beautiful picturesque Byodo-In (I think). I like the temples back in HNL, there are lots of different ones… if you like that type of thing I would look around a bit, because I bet this one will be very very busy thanks to Lost (I am a fan too). Reply Holy. Crap. Reply Gorgeous photos. Reply beautiful ! somehow her ink matches the whole theme ! Reply So happy to see a groom in Air force 1s, you see alot of Converse around these parts, but AF1s are CLASSIC!
