Its simple... I love what I do...
Some people just look at my job as simply being a photographer, but I see it as much more. I get the privilege of being invited into the most important day of your life. I get to celebrate with you. I get to become part of the family. I get to laugh and cry with you. I get to help you when things feel stressful. Truthfully I love being a part of your big day. Then on top of all that I get to use my creative side and capture all the beauty all the details all the laughs all the love...
I was raised in the Northwest. Grew up loving the outdoors and adventure. After college in Southern California I set out filming documentaries around the world. That experience allowed me to see the world differently. I began to see all the beauty that surrounded me in a different light. Shortly after my wife and I moved back to the Northwest and it is there I fell in love with photography and discovered the ability to capture a story in a single shot.
Five years ago my wife and I and now our three kids moved to the island of Maui. The ocean has a tendency to always pull me back to it. I now have been shooting weddings for the last 10 years and have loved every moment of it.
My wife and I run an organization called Village Of Hope supporting foster children and those people involved in the foster system. I have always had a passion to love people and bring support to those in need. We have been foster parents for the last 8 years and have had the chance to be apart of some amazing kids lives.
Whether it is shooting photos, surfing, enjoying a great cup of coffee with a friend, working with children I feel so blessed to call Maui my home and to get to do what I do.
