Being able to photograph these two that I’ve known since high school days was such a SWEET & EPIC MOMENT! Alohi recently got drafted to the LA Chargers in the NFL team and I wanted to capture his time with his girlfriend while home in Hawaii!

I worked with them helping pick out the best outfits, location suggestions, timing and more to make everything work flawless for this STUNNING shoot! It makes me so happy to see high school sweethearts doing life together and growing with each other. I couldn’t be more stoked for their journey ahead!

I always love to help my clients decide on what to wear, best locations & more. I always serve my couples best and guide them on the entire process from start to finish. Not just for photos but everything leading up I share guidance all along the way. Planning for a shoot is such a big moment and want to make sure my couples are taken care of the right way!

So many of my couples plan their photoshoots months in advance and I know they cherish these moments for YEARS TO COME! So plan ahead always, and if you need guidance + support to plan your next photo shoot, I GOT YOU COVERED!!!

“The whole process was easy going and exciting. You were very easy to talk to when we had questions and we loved your pamphlet you had emailed to us in preparation for the shoot! This was such a great way to let both of us know what to expect and how to coordinate our outfits. Through the whole shoot, you made us feel so comfortable! We both weren’t sure how to actually take photos, but you guided us so well at the same time helping us to be natural. We loved how you played music to set the tone and how you wanted to capture our love as naturally as possible!

We didn’t have to feel awkward posing just do whatever felt natural for us, which was our favorite part! We left the shoot feeling great about our experience. Following the shoot you sent us sneak peeks so quickly it was amazing!! We were both so in love, we got the rest of the pictures shortly after. Thank you for making this shoot feel special for me and Alohi. Overall it has been such a great experience working with you as a photographer. We have all known each other since high school and being able to catch up and see you working your magic was awesome! Don’t be surprised if we’re back again!!!”
