We absolutely adore film for its rich tones, soft grain and nostalgic feeling it evokes. We shoot film as much as we possible when photographing weddings and portraits. But t film does have its limitations and for that reason we always have a digital camera on us at all times during our shoot. The difference in the style or look between digital and film can be quite noticeable especi when looking at agetting our digital images to look like the film we shoot.
Over the past decade we have had the honor of photographing some of the most beautiful weddings in Hawaii & across the globe.

I, grew up on the Big Island and spent most of my days playing barefoot in the wild or near the surf on the lava lined Kona coast. I've had a lifelong love affair with Hawaii since before I can remember.
Growing up off the grid with no TV, the stories the uncles and aunties in our community told became my entertainment. I became captivated with stories and great storytellers and Hawaii has some of the best. Photography has allowed me to tell stories and I enjoy the fulfillment of capturing a life-long story within one day.
When Im not behind the camera, Im an avid surfer, brazilian jiu jitsu black belt & competitor, full time dad & husband.
I, grew up in Peru, moving around from the highlands to the jungle, to stark contrast of metropolitan city of Lima. While moving around was challenging, it forced my family to create a strong family culture and traditions that live on today. My childhood memories are filled with frequent family gatherings at my grandmother's house, with her delicious home cooking served on her special china at her x-large dining table. I loved hearing the adults sharing their childhood stories, I think this is where my appreciation for family history started and also my love for dancing, everyone danced the night away at our family gatherings.
Being surrounded by black and white photographs of my family members in suits and dresses, along with my mom's timeless style has made me a lover of all things classic.
My appreciation for family gatherings, traditions and the classic aesthetic has a big influence on my photography and what I work to capture. I feel incredibly privileged to be able to make family history for our clients thru our photography.
