My approach and style

warm | nostalgic | moody | vibey

Pretty sure "vibey" isn't a word but we'll go with it hehe. Sometimes it's hard for me to categorize my work. It's moody and inviting. Nostalgic and minimalist. Epic and understated. I edit with warm, desaturated colors and look for the best lighting situations. I love grain and old film vibes. So if you're a fan of the imperfectly perfect, you're in the right place.

Candid Directing

I'll admit, I made that up. Here's the thing, everyone says they only want candid photos, and those are my favorite as well...but when you are in front of the camera, you're going to want some direction. Posing gets a bad rep and sounds stiff, boring, and generally blah. Instead I'll prompt you with ideas to invite REAL emotion, while being conscious of your angles and the best light. Trust me, as your Honolulu photographer, I know how to get your good side 🙂

subjects > landscapes

Being an avid traveler, explorer, and all-around lover of nature, I take into account the emotional connection my clients have to the location we choose to shoot at. That being said, people and connection matters more. So while I'll always highlight the stunning vista we find ourselves, your photos will have a clear subject: YOU.

Style and scenery

Another truth bomb, I'm that girl that will hike to the top of a mountain with a wrinkly dress in her backpack to take an epic photo at the top...yup that's me! I am admittedly a lover of beautiful things, both style and scenery! But "style" means so many different me it's as simple as something natural and effortless.
