Meet your photographer

E Komo Mai! 
After growing up on the Leeward Coast until I was 13, I am so happy to be back here on the Island of Oahu! I am a mother, military wife, Navy Veteran, Starbucks lover, runner and a Disney fanatic! I believe that tomorrow is not promised to anyone, so it is my job to document these incredible moments in your life. These images will be passed on to your children and grandchildren, and I take pride in documenting your legacy!

From customizing packages, to being available to help with anything you may need (photography or not), as well as taking care of any stressful moments on the wedding day, I’m there to serve you to the best of my ability and document your most memorable day.

When I'm not photographing a session, you can find me laying at the beach, taking in the smells of the ocean, relaxing with a book and a drink with an umbrella in my hand!! I love running, and recently completed my 20th half marathon!

My husband is my rock. He has been my biggest supporter and fan, and none of this could be done without me. My daughters are my everything. They gave my life meaning, and being their mother will always be the best thing I will ever do in this life.
