When I get ready to photograph your Hawaii wedding, details are so important to be aware of. I send out a questionnaire for you to fill out and ask if there are any special details or circumstances I should be aware of. Maureen let me know that she and Phil were going to bring their […]

When I met Maureen at our initial consultation, we started to discuss pre-wedding photographs aka the engagement shoot. She asked if I would be open to photographing her nine year puppy Sadie. She’s a cancer survivor and not sure how much time she has left. Of course I obliged and super stoked to have done […]

This week’s images is from a very recent wedding (well vow renewal actually). Marie + Cedric were married 10 years ago in Montreal and they are just as much in love today as when they were first married.

I’ve noticed that my couples are super nervous because they’ve never had professional images taken before (except the cheesy high school senior portrait).

I can’t believe that I haven’t posted this wedding yet so please accept my humble apologies! Arlene and Kendall met in college and started dating straight away.

Giving someone a lei symbolizes the love and affection you have for them.  As a Hawaii wedding photographer, I’ve seen this tradition many times and it is always a very memorable experience.

A little fact about me before we get started on today’s image. I LOVE shoes! So much, that I actually use to work for Bally of Switzerland way back when as an Assistant Art Director… My office was near where all the product was and we drooled daily over the fabulous pairings. One of the […]
