Just had lunch with my family at a waterfall inside of the Bamboo Forest. Located on the Road to Hana, this spot is just one of many that I would recommend visiting when you come to Maui. I have always wanted to hike around and take photographs of waterfalls that captures the motion of falling water and hope that this image becomes just one of many more to come.
My good friends Ariel and Jenna recently flew me to the mainland from Maui, Hawaii to be their wedding photographer. It was my privilege to work at their event as it was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended. Their wedding was at Eagle Rock Lodge which is located on the McKenzie River just outside of Eugene, Oregon and is an amazing venue that really allows for the creation of some beautiful wedding photography. I also was able to bring my crew from Eugene to help out with the wedding video production and now that the photos are done I am turning my full attention to the editing of their wedding video. Here are some of my favorite images, but come back soon for a short video promo of their event.
Just finished up a maternity shoot at Baldwin Beach here Hawaii. The beach located on Maui has changed dramatically over the past 2 months, and now more than ever it makes a great backdrop for portrait photography at low tide. As a photographer I am always looking for something different in a background in order to make my portraits unique and memorable. This location is exactly what I look for as it provides beautiful depth and texture and also gives that Hawaiian feel that photographers on the islands are always looking for.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to shoot a lifestyle portrait of professional artist Ryan McVay. As a surrealist and abstract painter he wanted to update his image with a photograph that was different than everyone else and that would attract peoples attention in his home town located in Maui, Hawaii.
As a professional photographer I understand that it takes the right location and lighting to create photography that everyone enjoys, so we looked all over the island of Maui for the perfect location. Hawaii has so many different landscapes to choose from so this was not an easy task, but we knew what we were looking for and when we found the right spot we both knew that we had struck gold.
Using a bunch of random car parts that were sitting on the side of the road in the middle of the Haleakala desert we assembled what local residents call a Maui Cruiser. Kind of perfect for an artist and painter that specializes in surrealism.
Take a look at the final image and let us know what you think!!!
