The Way it Felt To Be There

I am more interested in the feeling you get when you look at an image than making sure its technically perfect.  In fact, my love of imperfection is not just in photography but in my whole imperfect life.  Four children, two dogs, two wild cats and my husband are where I call home.   We live on Maui and love our casual life here. Its messy, its chaotic, with a large share of challenges, but I grateful beyond measure to be living it.

My aim with photography is to capture the feeling between you and your loved ones — whether that is your groom or bride or children or parents.  There is nothing that means more to me than a photo where you are taken right back to how you felt in that moment it was taken.   I love combining you with the light and the love and creating images that reflect your connection and your spirit and bring you joy. I love shooting weddings and families and people of all kinds and telling their stories through images.    I love to be creative and focus on the feeling of the image  for some images and for others I favor a simple beautiful portrait.  Just like life, its all a mix, but what you walk away with is a complete story of your wedding, event or family that feels like how it felt to be there.

I photograph with film (you know the made by Kodak type of film) to capture the color and light as it is.  The film is developed and scanned and you receive digital images that you can share online and email to friends as well as print beautifully in large prints.

My work has been published in national issues of The Knot, Destination I Do, Pacific Weddings, Wilding, Click, Wedding and other international magazines. My wedding work has been recognized in our industry’s awards, Top Knots by PDN and is regularly featured on sites including Martha Stewart, Style Me Pretty, Brides, 100 Layer Cake, Once Wed, Wedding Sparrow, Grey Likes and many more.
