We’ve never been afraid of a little cloud cover, but when rain threatened our original shoot location for Vinhphu + Young’s Land, Sea + Sky trash the dress session, we followed the road until pavement gave way to loose asphalt and lava rock and we found ourselves in the shadow of a gorgeous Haleakalā, shrouded […]

We recently posted a question on Instagram asking what you wanted to know about our post-processing, and we got such a huge response I thought it would be easiest to keep all the answers in one place before they poof out in our stories and are lost on a highlights reel! Accompanying this post are […]

I thank our landlords every night under my breath. They trimmed the trees lining our home when we moved in, giving way to a sweeping view of the West Maui Mountains – it’s out of this world. And when the setting sun lights up the sky at the tail end of the day, I find […]

This sunset family portrait at the beach has all the elements we dream up – a walk on the beach, a splash in the water… a casual wave from Owen Wilson? Doesn’t hurt I guess to throw a sly celebrity encounter into our beach portrait packages, we like to go a bit extra at Love […]

It’s earth day, hurray! I feel as if every year Mother Earth heaves a sigh of relief on this day. “Ah,” she says, “they finally listened.” But then she scrolls Instagram 24 hours later and reads it’s now National Donut Day. “Hey, what the f*&%?” Does anyone remember that episode of Mad Men – Don […]

When you roll down to the beach for a sunrise session on Maui, you’re met first with darkness before the sun slowly rises behind Haleakalā and casts a sweet, soft palette on the sky. The beach is empty and the crow of roosters and hens foraging in the grass is coupled with the soft lapping […]

“Can I take my break?” I asked, covered in frothed milk, ground coffee beans sticking to my forearm. I wasn’t a natural born barista, that’s for sure. The shift manager peered at me over the espresso machine, his eyes darting to my friends in the corner. “Make it quick, we’re busy” he said. There wasn’t […]

I don’t know what I love the most. The creamy pastel skies, the West Maui Mountains aglow with sunset light, the laughter of guests heard between crashing waves at cocktail hour, their voices fading as we whisk the bride and groom away to the jetty just before the sun sinks over the ocean… Olowalu Plantation […]

Yesterday our daughter turned five months old. The middle-of-the-nights I used to spend texting my friends in Australia to stay awake as I fed her, the power naps she’d take on Adam’s chest as I had some quality time with our son, even the memory of the way her birth went off without any major […]

We had this idea – I don’t know. Sunrise, moonset, the still of morning coupled with those silky pastel skies – nothing needed to be perfect, but everything needed to happen at just the right moment. We’d been wanting to shoot with Kyera for ages, and finally the stars aligned. She hopped over to Maui […]
