No long intro’s for this one.

Big shouts to @keeeraah (you’ll find out soon who she is) for choosing us to be a part of this project!  Here is a few nice words she had for the crew and I.  “Huge thank you to Sean, Brandon, Kalen, and Jaysen for being a part of this project with us and helping us make this vision come to life!  Also, for helping me down the hike lol.”

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!

Sunny Fae is hella bubbly and all around just a nice girl to be around.  If I was to describe her personality, the best way I could sum it up would be, if she was to work retail, you’d remember her from the get go, and she be the type of employee who would have hella awards on customer service lol.  Sorry but that’s the best way I could think of putting it lol.  If her looks don’t already kill you, her charm would definitely make you feel some type of way!

Met Kayla through instagram and asked her if she would like to shoot with me.  She kindly replied and we set something up fast too!  We shot a street/urban style shoot with as minimal clothes as possible to give it that gritty, yet sexy vibe to it.  My idol in photography is @estevanoriol and I’m hella influenced by his work which is how I got the idea and tried to emulate it.

Shot this with my girlfriend the day before we went shooting at that park with the trees.  So it was the 18th when we shot this.  This shoot was a laid back type shot in her room.  I’m trying something new with the bokeh added in.  Hope you guys like the way it turned out because I did!
