Tracie & Bill take "The PLUNGE" in Maui
Aloha from Maui,
Last Wednesday at high Noon, the day before their wedding, Bill & Tracie took taking “THE PLUNGE” to a whole new level. They carefully climbed up the Black Rock Cliff on the coast of Kaanapali and LEAPED into the warm, crystal blue, Puget Sound as our awesome, Hawaiian friend, Wilmont Kahaialii, blew loudly on his conch shell. The spectators on the beach AND in the water cheered loudly for them. I loved how Tracie, who was a little hesitant with the 35′ foot cliff, was the first to leap.
It was such a fun spectacle to be part of! Congrats Tracie and Bill.
Here are the images from my shortest shoot ever (10 minute tops!):

Thanks Nicole!! We LOVE the pictures!!!! It was a great experience even though I’m deathly afraid of heights! I would do it another million times and the conch was awesome! By the way–Bill wanted me to jump first because he knew how freaked out I was 🙂

Wow! Totally Awesome and Way Cool pictures! Nicole, you are the bomb! Tracie and Bill are like the totally coolest and hottest couple ever!!! When they got up to the cliff and met me, I told them they were crazy!!! But, they kept their courage and forged ahead in spite of what I said. I was honored to blow my conch shell and offer a chant as part of the Magic everyone experienced and witnessed on that day. Way to go Bode’s!!!
