Gay Wedding Hawaii: Your Go-To Photographer (LGBTQIA+)

Do you and your partner plan to tie the knot in Hawaii?

Since Hawaii’s Marriage Equality Act of 2013, the State of Hawaii has provided for legal same-sex or same-gender marriages, and Honolulu-based wedding photographer Kris Labang has been capturing the cherished moments between LGBTQIA+ couples in love with great pride.

A legal marriage ceremony on the beach at sunset is a fantasy for many gay and lesbian couples, so why not go for it? You can choose a legal elopement, a small ceremony with only your inner circle, or even the whole big Maui wedding of your dreams.

The only thing more important than celebrating a beach wedding in Hawaii is preserving those memories for yourselves, your children, and even your grandchildren!

Kris Labang, a master of wedding photography both traditional and non-traditional with two decades of experience, will offer gay and lesbian couples a set of visual memories to last forever.

In addition to his stunning photography, Kris is also known for his local networking among the top wedding professionals, so he can also advise you with suggestions about LGBT-friendly vendors such as wedding planners, officiants, florists, and more.
