For those living in Hawaii, have y’all heard about AMMDI aka Aloha Made Me Do It? Wait why am I even asking that question?! Of course y’all heard or seen that brand at least once. If you’ve been living under a rock or just play games all day and have no clue what AMMDI is, it’s a local lifestyle brand from Hawaii making waves through social media and even possibly a store near you! Reason I’m bringing the brand up is because of this woman right here! Kerah is the HBIC of that brand! She’s currently a fashion major at HCC (Honolulu Community College) and has plans of transferring to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) in LA to expand her knowledge and skills in the fashion world.
I first met Kerah through my partners, Brandon (BSV) & Kalen (kshotz), on one of AMMDI’s swimsuit shoots. Prior to that, we only chatted lightly through instagram after she saw some of my shots I did with other girls that were sporting one of her 1 piece swimsuits. Then the team and I helped a bit with another shoot for her line and after that I thought, “why haven’t I ask Kerah yet to shoot?” So I asked her one day and she was down for my ideas and here it is!
Wanna see what we cooked up for this shoot? You’ll definitely wanna see the video too! Click on Kerah’s photo above or click here.
She might look familiar to you or she might not. If you really have no clue who this eye candy is, let me give you a hint. You might’ve seen her working at district night club, as one of the dimes (if you weren’t already shit faced drunk to even notice lol). This is Katie Daly. Young lady on the come up with ambitions in the fitness world. Yup, you heard me! I said, “in the fitness world.” So if y’all need some tips or training in the gym, she just might be your next personal trainer! Check out the shoot the team and I did with her along with Tony, @tonez79, and his 79 Monte!
This is Michaela, aka Kayla. A 21 year old college student who moved to the island from Fairbanks, AK to take up political science at UH. Although amazing at what she does when she’s in front of the camera, off camera, not only is she smart, but she’s hella friendly, easy going, and over all a chill person to hang and make conversations with. I typically found her through instagram, basically the biggest directory out there when looking for someone to shoot with lol, and just dm’d her to schedule something. Some months down the line, here you are checking up on what the team and I curated from the shoot we had with Michaela this passed weekend. I’ll let her feature do the rest of the talking.
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!
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!
