A little about me.......I am Canadian. I love dill pickles. My favorite time to work is late in the evening. I have a high tolerance for hot, spicy food. I spend all my money on home renovations and camera equipment. We have a little girl, named Avalon, I was never very good with kids until she came along and showed me how to be. My husband can fix anything and is an amazing cook. I volunteer for Hospice of Kona by gifting family portraits to patients and their families during their most fragile time. I live in paradise. I love meeting new people. I love weddings. I have the best job in the world. My photography style is very casual, I'm usually photographing people outside working with available light and the Big Island's beautiful scenery, but I also like to light my subjects for dramatic sunset imagery. I'm flexible and I like input from my subjects, this is what ultimately brings out their personalities in the images I take of them. I enjoy posing people for fun, original pictures, but I also try to take a lot of impromptu pictures that capture the joy and emotion of the moment. I am committed to living up to the gift I've been given in serving couples and families in Hawaii and all over the nation.
If you’ve booked a 3 hour session or longer, you will probably meet Hannah, Braylene or Rick!
Braylene Jones also helps me out from time to time as a lighting assistant. A busy lady and talented seamstress, Braylene designs clothing, swimsuits and home decor for her etsy shop, Ships in the Night. She really likes spaghetti…..a lot!
Rick Mount and I have recently partnered to form LoudMount Productions, wedding cinematography. Rick is originally from Philly and he makes a mean Philly cheese steak. When not shooting video (ie: playing) with his drone, he spends his free time with his little girl, Rosie, fulfilling his duties as a roller derby husband, and reigning in his rambunctious puppies, Gumbo & Gidget!
See some of our highlight Wedding Films . Let us know if you’re interested in having Rick and I film your wedding!
