Couples commission me to be their personal image maker during their entire wedding experience, not just the wedding day.
There is simply nothing like the warm feeling of owning a full collection of images that remind you of your loved ones. It’s beautiful.
Mike and Jocelyn met at Columbia Business School. They live in Manhattan but couldn’t resist the opportunity to get married in Jocelyn’s breathtaking hometown.
Everyone who made the trek was richly rewarded for their trouble. Mike and Joce planned a full week of outings and activities including an unforgettable lu’au.
This remarkable event shows what is possible in your photography collection.
