A trip to the Hawaiian islands is about disconnecting to reconnect to the ‘āina (land) in a fresh, new way. It’s about freeing your spirit, learning about Hawaiian culture, opening yourself up to new adventures. It’s about stepping outside your ordinary, day-to-day and resting in the most authentic parts of yourself.

And to ensure that your photography experience is inspired by these realities, I have placed three words at the heart of my mission: spontaneity, emotion, and serenity.


SPONTANEITY

Unguarded human connection is one of the most beautiful gifts we can give to one another, and because of this, I live for opportunities to document it in action. To ensure that you feel comfortable and free, I create space for you to be vulnerable (and have a blast!) during our photography session. This way, your true personality and unique connection with your love will be sincerely showcased in every photograph we take. 

EMOTION

From the way your eyes lock to full-on butterflies you get while laughing together, the artful documentation of your connection allows for emotions to shine and shift like a kaleidoscope. By getting to your story before our session, we can create an experience that best reflects the emotions that feel true to who you are. Let’s create photographs you won’t just see; you’ll feel. 

SERENITY

Finally, by creating a “no pressure” atmosphere during our session, we will find moments of calm in the chaos, while celebrating the beauty of simply existing together. There are no right or wrong ways to tell the story of your love, and leaning into the mystery is where the magic happens. So let’s get creative, try new things, and embrace the tranquility of the islands we love.

No! when visiting a special place like Maui, it's important to respect the Hawaiian culture and only go to places that are pono and legal. I have lived here for 10 years, and take Hawaiian language + culture classes at the university, as well as volunteer and immerse myself in indigenous community projects.
