Interstellar is a science fiction space movie that stars Matthew Mcconaughey, that guy from the Lincoln car commercials; and Ann Hathaway, that girl who looks rather strange and doesn’t have a car commercial yet. Before Gravity 2….I mean Interstellar, was released this weekend, critics had begun singing praises, some […]
If there’s one thing that couples come to my page for is to view wedding photos. Lots of it. I know I tend to ramble on about a lot of non-wedding related stuff. You know, movie reviews, my obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles, my opinion on well…everything. […]Read more...
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be writing a serious article regarding the subject of Ebola: in Hawaii, in my lifetime, and how it could possibly affect your Hawaii wedding plans. Unfortunately, this is not a drill. While the chance of Ebola coming to Hawaii, […]Read more...
This summer was crazier than normal. I believe I planned and photographed over 100 weddings over the course of the entire summer! I did 30-plus weddings just in the month of July. Talk about burnout. I don’t think I’m ever doing that again. If I do, I don’t […]Read more...
OCTOBER 18, 2014 UPDATE: It’s raining a bit here in Hawaii, but that didn’t stop our wedding at Sherwoods. We had a break where we were able to do the wedding grab a handful of great shots. Here is just a taste of the pictures we got today. No re-shoot […]Read more...
THE MONKEYPOD KITCHEN If you’re getting married at the “Secret Cove at Ko olina,” or anywhere on the west coast of Oahu, The Monkeypod Kitchen should be on your short list of restaurants to dine at. The restaurant is perfect for small sized parties, say 30 people and below. While […]

Waimanalo Beach…and the Pacific Ocean. EXPENSIVE WEDDINGS IN HAWAII One of the more common questions I get asked on a daily basis is, “How can I save money on my dream wedding?” If you’re looking for an answer worth a pot of gold, you’re not going to find one. I […]
The Knot ripped me off, and it wasn’t pretty. In December of 2013 I was approached by The Knot, via an anonymous phone call, to advertise on their website. The Knot offered me an overkill of web advertising opportunities, most of which was quickly read off a script, and most […]
OTHER STUFF I WRITE ABOUT
About three weeks ago I got an call to plan a surprise vow renewal on August 7th during sunset at Magic Island. August 7th was a special date for my client as it was the exact date which he and his wife exchanged their original vows. Now putting together […]
I saw Guardians of the Galaxy twice, and both times, it didn’t disappoint. The second time was much better though, because I ate five hot dogs. The entire movie is all around awesome, balancing perfectly the right amount of comedy, action, light drama, and talking trees. The movie stars Chris Pratt […]
Latest Track UPDATE AUGUST 6TH: It looks like a Hurricane will hit the Big Island, weaken, then miss us (Oahu). So it looks like we’re in a for lots of rain. Lets pray that it doesn’t take a turn north. That’s what happened with Iniki. It strengthen and then […]
Every now and then I get a call from a hotel asking me if I am willing to shoot photos of a family on the beaches of Oahu. My answer to them is always, “Sure!” I have no problem at all doing it. I know there are […]
I had the opportunity to attend an early screening of Lucy yesterday (July 23, 2014), for free, and I still feel as though I got ripped off. I didn’t have any special connections to get into the screening. I just printed out a ticket, showed up to the theater early […]
There’s no doubt that I am a fan of snapshot photography. Most of the pictures you see on my site are taken with a very high performance snapshot camera, the Canon G1x, and a high powered Nikon Flash. But I’ve always wondered if I could get great shots with […]
Looks like we may be in for some very nasty weather. Last week, we got hit with the remaining storm cell of Tropical Depression Fausto. Luckily, the storm didn’t across the entire island and my couples and I were able to run away from the rain. I have a […]
For some reason, everyone and their grandmother (I’m not kidding, many of my brides are grandmothers) wants to get married on Oahu in the month of July. I’m booked almost to the brim, but I can more than likely take on a handful of jobs if you’re willing to be […]
June 28, 2014 – Pupukea Vow Renewal – Close to Sunset Close to sunset shots look great. Vow renewals, when there are kids involved, are always interesting. Probably the most difficult shot of the day is the simple family shot. June 27, 2014 – Pupukea – Sunset This was […]
