We just got back from Kauai, where Jeremy and I had our wedding and honeymoon.
From the beginning of our courtship, we had envisioned an intimate and private beach ceremony, and that vision became a reality on Feb 12.
Finding the right beach was a little stressful. After driving around the island, we were lead to Moloa’a beach based on Emily’s suggestion. Hidden behind a row of swanky houses built high off the ground, “It’s perfect”, we thought. Interestingly, it was here that the opening beach scenes of Gilligan’s island were filmed.
All photos were taken by the wonderfully talented Emily Helen. Being photographers ourselves, we were extremely picky when it came to finding the right photographer. We even considered flying in one of our photographer friends from Seattle. After searching through dozens and dozens of photographers on the island, we were ecstatic to have found Emily – we were certain that she was the best photographer on Kauai.

The main reason for delays of new posts in SimplyTina is due to an overwhelming amount of photos to sort through, select and edit. I don’t mind the time consuming part, but it’s the emotional detachment that I have a hard time with.
I get terribly attached to my photos, and narrowing them down is kind of like choosing your favorite child and throwing the rest of your children away (in a fire). Ouch!
It’s been a few weeks, and over a cumulative of 20 hours, I’ve finally narrowed the 3300 some images from Kashgar down to 200, then again to around 50 photos. This is the first of three posts showing them.
In this post, I wanted to showcase two photo essays on Kashgar taken during the trip. Enjoy!
Posts covering Kashgar has been spread out into the following:
- Video: Glimpses of Kashgar
- Kashgar: In Pictures (Current Post)
- Kashgar: A Colorful Celebration of Life – Part 1
- Kashgar: A Colorful Celebration of Life – Part 2
- Roadtrip: Karakul Lake via Karakoram Highway
