A little about me

Becoming a mom at the age of 19 changed my whole perspective on life. I picked up a camera the first time to capture fleeting moments of my little new babes. My kids helped me see the world from a fresh perspective. I’m an ambitious dreamer and a hard working mama at the same time.

I pour my heart & soul into my couples + work and cannot express my gratitude for getting the opportunity to capture huge life events.

I have served over 150 weddings throughout the years & feel so honored + valued to be apart of life changing moments all around the world. Over the years I have built friendships, amazing relationships and connections which is what I truly what I seek for.

I'm not the photographer for everyone and that's okay.
If we vibe, count me and my team in.

My Philosophy

From start to finish we will give you an extraordinary & one of a kind experience. My entire team is born & raised in Hawaii and truly embody the "aloha" spirit. I'm also huge on energy and as long as we vibe together-we're the perfect fit. My team is ready to take care of you from start to finish.

Your wedding day is the most important thing to me, nothing else. I work hard to make your day as seamless, STRESSFREE and memorable for YOU. I am indebted to my couples who hire me to be a part of their day from far & wide. My goal is to tell your one of a kind love story.

Being immersed in the wedding & elopement industry for almost an entire decade I know what will make your day stressfree, fun and flow seamlessly.

We got you.

After shooting over 150+ weddings & elopements, trust me I know a thing or two.

My style speaks to modern, boho and romantic couples, that’s where we thrive. My couples commonly describe my work as timeless, a style that will never be just a "trend" but live on for decades to come in their home.

Me & my team take a very limited amount of couples, weddings & elopements because we pour our absolute heart & soul into each one of our couples, so reach out in advance to avoid dissapointment. 

We want to make sure we're the right fit for eachother-so as long as we vibe, count us in! I pride myself of being sought out years in advance so if you'd like us to capture your big day get in touch. Some couples reach out to us weeks in advance for an elopement or years in advance for weddings. Regardless, always shoot your shot for a once in a lifetime experience!

“Every wedding, every shoot, I see the world through a whole new lens. Your story will be different from the last, and this ignites my passion all over again.”

Regardless of forgetting your heels at the hotel, or only remembering to write your vows the day of or even being an hour late, we've got your back. Weddings & elopements can be hectic but we are there to support you regardless and have your back. We're there to make your day seamless, capture the good moments and everything in between.

Here's the process of working with me & my team:
1. Go through my website, pricing details, about us and past work to make sure we're the right fit. Make sure you read through the details and that we align with your vision.
2. Reach out-please inquire using my website and give me as much details as you possibly can, share with me your story, your journey and details of your big event. Check your inbox as you can expect a response within less than 24 hours.
3. Make sure we vibe-we'll hop on a call, chat about life, catch up like long lost friends and make sure we're the perfect fit for each other.
4. Count us in-after our consultation call you will receive a proposal for a contract & retainer. Once that's received your date is officially saved!

Rain, hail or shine, I won’t miss a beat.
