SUMMER ’15! Wedding Photos…well not all, just a taste

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 […]

Steven Says: THE KNOT SCAM:  Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

THE KNOT SCAM: Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

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 […]

Guardians of the Galaxy, A MUST SEE! (No Spoilers)

Guardians of the Galaxy, A MUST SEE! (No Spoilers)

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 […]

Movie Review: Lucy – What the…Really? What a dumb….. (No Spoilers)

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 […]

Wedding Photography With A Cheap Camera

Wedding Photography With A Cheap Camera

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 […]

July 18, 2014 Weather Update: Looks like Rain!

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 […]

JULY: Booked up…but there are exceptions….

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 […]

NOT RENEWING FOOTBALL SEASON TICKETS THIS YEAR – MEANS…

NOT RENEWING FOOTBALL SEASON TICKETS THIS YEAR – MEANS…

The “current” UH football experience consist nothing more than watching a bad coach lose his temper, falling asleep in uncomfortable seats, eating overpriced stale pizza, and paying for small expensive parking stalls.  At one time, great football play trumped everything else.  But Junes Jones, our former coach who took us […]

MOVIE REVIEW: Spiderman 2 sucks. Give Lone Ranger and Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter a Try!

SPIDER-MAN D’OH! I’m a huge Spider-man fan.  I don’t read the comics, but I love the cartoons;  and I love all of the movies…well, all except this one.  It really brings me to a great dismay to say this, but The Amazing Spider-man 2 is an average-to-bad movie.   I was on the fence with […]
