Check it out by clicking on her photo above or click here.  Not only is it filled with tons of awesome photos, but also the sick video coverage my partners brewed up!

Don’t forget to follow us on instagram and show some love!  We give that love right back!

Linked up with @msjazzminerie one day after she hit me up to shoot mentioning she liked my style of shooting.  Before, when I first started photography, I thought shoots at the beach were the best things to do, because I mean we live on an island and it’s not that hard to find a nice beach to take pictures lol.  But as I grew more with my photography, I thought beach shoots were so cliche.  Typical.  Basically what you assume to see when you hear of photographers from Hawaii.  I decided I wanted to stray away from the beautiful beaches (don’t get me wrong, shooting at the beach will turn out beautiful pictures) and showcase the streets of Hawaii instead.  Going for a more urban look now days.  I still shoot at the beach here and there but my niche now is the streets.  Check out Jazz’s photo set by clicking here or clicking her photo above.  Don’t forget to follow her and myself as well on instagram!
