“In the short term, it would make me happy to go play outside. In the long term, it would make me happier to do well at school and become successful. But in the VERY long term, I know which will make better memories.”

– Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes: It’s a Magical World


Weddings are full of incredible moments of tears of joy, laughter, and hours of fun. It’s a time everyone takes a break from their long term goals to enjoy what makes the best memories. My goal is to capture those memories in a beautiful, artistic, and compelling way.

I was born in Hawaii, raised in California. I broke my foot filming while skateboarding. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. I moved back to Hawaii to be near my family. Photography has always been a passion. Cooking. Fashion. Web design. Music. Cinema. I am a huge fan of bright colors and just raw visual impact. I am really moved and intrigued by a broad range of things and photography links all these together.

There are not a lot of jobs where you can meet so many wonderful people. Where people bring you in to the most cherished moments of their families. Capturing these moments is what makes everything worth it.

Photography allows me to go play outside.
