Want to know what working with me looks like?! I’m happy to oblige! My experience is about making your time with me about YOU. This means getting to know you so that you not only feel comfortable with me, but also trust me to capture some beautiful moments. I thrive when couples are down for fun, being a little messy, and embracing whatever comes our way. Prom poses are so high school - just real, raw, and candid moments here! I absolutely love shooting outdoors and my heart is set on fire when I get to capture the love my couples have in a beautiful, scenic environment. Does this sound like you and your boo?!

Here’s all the nitty gritty details for ya'

Will You Photoshop Us?

I'm very passionate about NOT using Photoshop to alter someone's appearance. I will use it to remove temporary blemishes (i.e. a pimple that will disappear soon) and people/things in the background. You are all BEAUTIFUL and DO NOT need to alter your appearance.

What Happens If The Weather Is Bad?

Unless there's a storm advisory, I am all about embracing the rain! However, if you are adamant about shooting in some sunshine I can do my best to reschedule you at the next best available date.

For any shoots outside of Oahu, airfare, travel, lodging (if applicable) fees will be applied. A custom quote will be given and I will strive for the best deals so that travel expenses are minimal.

Do You Help In The Planning Process?

Absolutely! I love helping in the planning process and I want to make this as easy for you as possible. I am here for timeline, outfit, location, basically anything that you might need assistance with.

Do You Photograph Families, Seniors, Etc.?
