More about Between the Pine »

Since 2018, I’ve photographed over 150 adventure elopements and weddings, including 10 in Kauai. My work has been featured in The Knot, Green Wedding Shoes, and PNWonderland, and I also won Junebug’s 2019 Elopement of the Year.

After capturing so many elopements, I know the ins and outs of working in Kauai. Drew and I went on our honeymoon here back in 2016 and have been coming back ever since. This islands landscapes, the rich Hawaiian culture, and endless adventure keeps pulling us back to this island. 

I’m Mollie: adventure wedding and elopement photographer, founder of Between the Pine, hiking fanatic, and snack queen (just ask any of my couples about my famous homemade chocolate-chip cookies).
