Engagement Photos | A Sunrise in Waikiki

Engagement photos at sunrise in a quiet Waikiki is the romantic setting Febe & Shigge were looking for when they contacted me about their session. Waikiki is rarely quiet.

Maximizing Reception Events Most of the time, the reception timeline is planned out by the DJ and the wedding planner, if you have one. However, this is usually planned without the ending coverage time in mind for the videographer and photographer. Now, I will say that I have stayed well past the time I was […]

Family, sparkles, pasta, buncha crunch...these are a few of my favorite things

Growing up, I always thought I would be a teacher or nurse, or something along those lines since both of those occupations run deep in my family. But, that all changed when I was unexpectedly left without a photographer just 2 days before my own wedding. I knew right then and there that I would do everything in my power to not let another couple feel that same level of stress. For the past 14 years, I have worked to create an environment that allows my clients to actually enjoy their photography experience!
