Some couples decide to have a “first look” before their wedding ceremony. Usually, this is done in a private area, away from guests, and is an intimate moment shared just between the bride and groom. I absolutely love photographing these first look moments, especially when a groom sees his bride for the first time. I […]

The best parts of life aren’t staged. When you think back to the times in your life that you were the happiest, was someone telling you where to stand? Of course not.

I visited an old-time friend this week on the Big Island. It’s been 15 years since we’ve seen each-other and what a great felling it was to see her again. She was like a big sister to me in high school and still feels like a big sister. We’d cruise around in her little white […]
