You Should know that I think everyone should get sandy and wet.


I like eyes that are squinty from laughing.


I think that hair blowing across your face can be awesome, and I love your smile even if for some reason you don't.


I live for color, give me all the colors of the sunrise, palm trees, every shade of the ocean, rainbows and sunset! We are here because we love Hawaii and Hawaii is a rainbow of color!


I am interested in love and laughter, hide and seek and toddler meltdowns followed by sweet, snotty snuggles, getting splashed too much by waves and covered in sand, and smiling until our cheeks hurt because we're having so much fun.


I am more interested in real than in perfect. Because actually, real is perfect; and if you think so too, then you're my people.

I cannot recommend Michelle enough! She shot both of my sisters' weddings and I was lucky enough to book her for mine :) She was endlessly patient and hardworking with an amazing attitude despite many, many changes in plans. She is amazing and took incredible pictures that we're going to treasure forever.
