March 2010 Update

We just came out of the production of Soul Surfer – the movie about Bethany’s story. Noah and I were associate producers and Noah got the opportunity to do some set photography :)  …Tim, Noah’s brother, worked as a “Camera PA” – assisting the camera operators. Hana (the Bethany’s puppy) had a small role as Bethany’s dog Ginger.

Noah’s parents, Tom & Cheri, also spent time on set, and hanging out with the actors who were playing them – Dennis Quaid & Helen Hunt. Chris Brochu, who plays Timmy, spent a lot of time with our family hanging out and surfing, singing and adventuring. Ross Thomas, who plays Noah, is a great guy who we got to spend some time with, too. We absolutely love and adore AnnaSophia Robb, who plays Bethany. She and her parents are so sweet and fun to hang out with.

Spending so much time with the cast, crew, and producers really made us all feel like family. Our work-days were long – 12 hours/day, and 6 days/week. Then there were get-togethers about once a week outside of work!

Now we’re home and moving back into the love shack! We’re looking for a place to rent soon. And also considering buying a home with my parents…

Our wedding photographers, Chris+Lynn, were featured in a book about professional photography, Visionmongers.


More of our Wedding photos have been featured on our photographers’ website – – look under FEATURED for “Destination Wedding: Kauai“.  Also, check out the PORTFOLIOS: “C+L=Beauty” & “C+L=Fun” & “C+L=Love” & “C+L=Vision


April 20, 2011 - 6:26 pm Natalie Holland - The movie was amazing great job we all cryed and were very touched by the movie.


Happy New Year!

We just wanted to update you all with what’s going on in our life going into 2010.

We are finishing up a few of Noah’s photo jobs and he is transitioning into working on the movie about his sister, Bethany, which is in pre-production right now. The film, Soul Surfer, will be starting production (filming) in February. Noah and I will be living on Oahu while the movie films, and a little before that to help with preparations for production. We will be moving over there in about a week.

Becky is trying to wrap-up some of the major Bethany assisting work and get ready to work on the movie full time, while still maintaining the assisting.

Thank you cards from the wedding are slowly but surely getting written & sent. We are about half-way through the alphabetical list! It’s been a joy to sit down and think of all the ways our friends & family have impacted us and blessed us :)

Anyway, God is making himself known to us in new ways and revealing our inner need for Him on a daily basis. It’s like, just when you think you have everything together, God makes you realize you don’t, and you realize you don’t even want yourself to control anything cause it’ll turn out way better when He does it!  We want Him to motivate our and every thought and action this year. Which will be challenging, for sure, as we are both slight control-a-holics… Haha!

May God bless you and change you this year to be more like Him!


Married Life

So we haven’t done a post in a long time, sorry!

It’s officially been 6 months of marriage bliss! From entertaining to working to traveling and having a lots of fun in between, the past 6 months have really flown by.

We spent most of June in French Polynesia on our honeymoon (enjoying the beautiful islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora).

In the end of the month we went to Oahu for a week to help out with (and attend) a Mike Larson Photography Workshop. We both learned a lot from Mike’s experiences and business integrity and wisdom. We’ve been implementing some of his strategies and ideas into Noah’s photography business model, and have been able to pass on a lot of wisdom to other photographer/small business owner friends!

In July, we settled into the “River Shack” (or, as our friend Nate refers to it, the “Love Shack”!) – a small cottage on the Hanalei River which sits on land that Noah’s family owns. They are kindly and generously letting us reside there until the end of the year! We also spent lots of time catching up on work, getting new photo jobs, and entertaining friends!

August was, like July, full of work and (for Becky) baby shower planning for friends! Tis the season!

The following month we went on a surf/photo/video trip to Sumatra, Bali, and Grajagan (G-land) in Indonesia with Noah’s sister, Bethany, and brother, Tim. We got some great waves at Padang Padang on Bali – and had fun exploring the islands! Watch a short surf video of Bethany from the trip! Becky was mainly filming, and Noah was mainly shooting still photos of Bethany.

We have also been helping to pioneer a non-profit organization called Friends of Bethany Hamilton. It received official non-profit status from the IRS in August, so we’re finally getting the ball rolling, and it has been fun! We’re working with the other board members on an official logo design and branding, creating PR materials, and designing the website better. We have already sent out about a dozen Encouragement Packages to recent Shark Attack Survivors and Traumatic Amputees. They include (usually) Bethany’s book, Soul Surfer, and documentary DVD, Heart of a Soul Surfer. We’re still working out all the kinks of getting this organization on it’s feet, but we’re off to a good start, and we have some great ideas and plans for the future! Please offer your suggestions, feedback, and ideas for the organization, and help us out in any way you can!

In late September, we found out that Becky’s grandpa, Geoff Humphries, had passed away. It was very unexpected. So we flew out to California for his memorial service and burial on Oct 10th. He was a wonderful grandpa, and he will be missed. We were very happy that he had been able to join us for our wedding earlier this summer!!


The trip to California allowed for us to visit with both sides of Becky’s extended family, and also Noah’s grandma. And we got to see many of Becky’s college roommates, including Kate who had just given birth to a darling baby girl, Presley!

AND we were blessed to attend one of Becky’s good friends from high school, Emily Kantorak’s, wedding to her now husband Chad Sterbens. It was fun to see a lot of Becky’s cherished friends from Chino at the wedding!

The rest of October was a whirlwind! We were working hard. Noah got a job working with Kevin and Emily Durham, the founders of This Iz My Story, filming Bethany’s and local surfer Jesse Guglielmana’s testimonies. The video stories will be posted when they’re done being edited. But this is a cool organization, so check them out! We had a really great time working and hanging out with Kevin and Emily and became instant (and eternal) friends!

Now, heading into November, we are working on updating Noah’s website, creating flyers for portraiture and weddings, business cards, selling some photo/computer equipment, and taking care of general business. Noah has a few photo shoots booked and a few in the works. If you’re on island and want to book a PORTRAIT session for the holidays, please give Noah a call at 652-7667!

We had so much fun surfing this past weekend. Thank you God for that fun swell!

AND we just got word from our wedding photographers, Chris+Lynn Photographers, that they are going to create a sample album from our wedding photos for their studio!!! They said our wedding was their favorite of the year (probably cause we pretty much planned our wedding around photography!)! But, seriously, what an honor!!!

We are also very excited that Noah’s sister, Bethany, has received a wild card entry into the Gidget Pro CT event at Sunset Beach on Oahu. And, since this will be her first CT event entry, we’ll probably head over there to watch!

Well, that was long, but you can get an idea of what our life has been like!

God bless!
Noah & Becky

Honeymoon Tahiti, Postcard 1

Iorana from Tahiti on the honeymoon of our dreams!!!

Since the waves at teahupoo were meant to be big, there were quite a few surfers we knew on our flight down to tahiti, so that was kinda fun :)

When we landed in tahiti on sunday night we were greeted with flowers and then rented a car & went to the hotel.

the next day, Sunday, we drove out to teahupoo to check out the waves and say hi to friends. everyone was asking how Tim & “Betany” are doing :) We bumped into all the chopo boys.

Then monday morning, Noah surprised Becky with a flight to bora bora!! The bora bora airport is on a small “motu”/island, just big enough for a landing strip.  so when we arrived we were greeted by a lady from our hotel with leis, and driven by boat, actually mini yacht, to our hotel.

It is SOOOOO beautiful & we are having a blast…. staying in an over the water bungalow!!!!!!!!!!!!! its awesome, in the short time we have been here its been incredible, picture perfect. so relaxing and tranquil. we are excited to spend the next 5 days here!

until the next postcard from paradise…. bonjour, n+b

Wedding Live webcast

The live webcast went off without a hitch last night, 115 people tuned in to watch us getting married. That’s just darn cool. I hope my grandma Dotti and cousin Pat got to watch it. The webcast was for those two special people as well as all our family and friends who couldn’t attend.

Thank you Tine Howard and the crew at Hawaii Stream for making the webcast happen.

January 18, 2009 - 8:04 pm Kilinoe - oh my gosh, this brought tears to my eyes! i don't know why, but i'm so overwhelmingly excited for you!! maybe because we've been waiting sooooooooooo long and it's finally a reality with a date and everything! nothin but love for you!

January 23, 2009 - 3:55 pm The Spy - Congradulations for sure! But, I gotta admit, photo documenting a marriage proposal and making a wesbite out of it is right up there with proposing while skydiving as far as the level of flamboyancy goes. I'm not impressed. I think the marriage proposal would've been much more special if it was done in space.

January 23, 2009 - 4:12 pm admin - haha

March 3, 2009 - 11:28 am Mark & Sage Gauthier - Congratulations, you guys. We're so happy for you

Video of the proposal.

Here is some more documentation of the proposal. My good friend John McClure was kind enough to leave work early and get the clips of our special day. He also throws down some good interview questions and captures Becky’s cuteness. 

Leave a comment below. Let us know what you think of the day you have all been waiting for. Maybe you can comment on Becky’s reaction or her interview responses or my babbling.

In Christ, Noah and Becky

We love our dads… Becky’s dad, Bruce, sang a beautiful song that he wrote for Becky during the reception. And Noah’s dad gave a nice toast!

Our beautiful families!

Our love began when we met at a home bible study on Kauai. We began dating officially in February 2004. Did the “long distance relationship” for 2 years while Becky finished college in California. Noah would find every excuse to visit Becky in California, and Becky would return to Kauai for christmas & summer breaks. Our love stayed strong when Becky moved back to Kauai after graduating in 2006. We’ve enjoyed getting to spend time together for the last 2 years here on Kauai, and having the opportunity to share in each other’s passions of Photography and Filmmaking.

(BY BECKY) Noah was on Oahu for work, so I flew over to celebrate the New Year with him! We planned to go on a date (dinner and a movie) on January 1st. So, all dressed up, we headed down toward Haleiwa. Noah had been wanting to show me a photo shoot area at Sharks Cove. So he suggested we stop there on the way to take a photo of us with my camera. So we pulled over and walked out onto the lava rock. It was a beautiful night, nearing sunset time. As Noah was “setting up the camera” I turned to go sit where we would be posing for the shot. He told me not to sit down yet. I turned around and there he was on his knee, holding a ring in his hand, with the hugest smile in his face. I thought for a second he was joking and said “Are you serious!?” He said he loved me and asked me to marry him. I said “Yes! Of course!” Then he put the ring* on my finger and we hugged and kissed. I was in shock and Noah was super shaky from excitement/nerves! After dating for about 5 years and anticipating this for a few months, I couldn’t believe it happened so fast!

Then out of the corner of my eye I see this photographer, Ramona, pointing her camera at us, and up walked Noah’s buddy, Big John, with a video camera – they had been documenting the whole thing!

We’re both super stoked! We ended up doing a photo shoot with Ramona then eating dinner at 8:30pm.

The ring (photo on homepage) is very special to me since the stones come from a ring I inherited from my Great Grandmother, and NOAH DESIGNED this ring specially for me! Local jeweler, Jim Saylor, created it.

We hope to blossom Noah’s wedding/other photography as a team. And we’d also love to be involved with more film, tv, and music video projects together. We plan to live on the north shore of Kauai. But our future certainly is not limited, and we’re open to whatever God has for us!
