Narrating the love story of your wedding day through artful, emotive, timeless photography.
Well hello there and welcome. Starting out my career in NYC as a graphic designer and art director, which had taken me from ice cream and beer to the fashion world, working on some of the top brands. All of which taught me about composition and working under pressure. After a life changing trip, I decided it was time to explore the world and have an adventure.
I tell you this as it helps me, help you capture your own story with care, creativity and emotion.
Aussie Boy meets Canadian Girl. They decide to marry…but where? They decided on a destination wedding in Hawaii on the famous North Shore at Loulu Palms Estate. It’s a spacious property with places for you to get ready, catering set up, scenic ocean ceremony and walk across to your tented area and enjoy your reception […]
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 […]
I can’t believe how far behind I am on posting recent shoots! I loved photographing Nicolle and Brock for their engagement session up on the North Shore. They wanted bring their boys and make an evening out of it. The thing about going up to the North Shore is that I find that people who […]
Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m passionate about movies. I love a good story, drama and the action that a good film captures, as well as the perspectives that documentaries reveal to me. It’s really where I get a lot of my inspiration for my photography…the lighting, the drama, the action! This form of […]
Photographing Hawaii weddings includes many aspects of your day, especially when you hire a wedding photographer to for all day coverage. Asking a group of people to pose in front of the camera and act happy on demand isn’t always as easy as it looks.
Her vision, she told me, was in a park with lots of greenery and in downtown Honolulu to have the contrast of nature and urban living. My suggestion was to head over to Chinatown where on a Saturday, is pretty quiet since it’s mostly a Monday – Friday hub. So with my trusty assistant Kelli to watch over traffic, we head to the middle of the road for this image.
When I first met Amber, I just knew I had to photograph her one day. We quickly became friends through a photographer’s group here on Oahu and I think it’s because we not only have a passion for photography but, also the gift of gab!
One of the best ways I get to know my couples is to have a photo session before the wedding. Typically we call this an “Engagement” session since it happens before the wedding. It ‘s a great idea on many fronts and I’ll get into that in a later post…
Mallory always wanted a beach wedding and what a better place to have one but on the North Shore of Oahu. Mallory and Chris Flew in from Florida and Mallory was so excited to be staying at Turtle Bay Resort where the movie “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” was filmed.
I love rings…I love jewelry! It’s one of my favorite detail images to capture. I’m not one to photograph them on your hands, I have an issue with chopped off body parts. It’s a rule I learned while attending School of Visual Arts years ago and still keep that rule in my back pocket. I […]
