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.
From what Michelle has told me, this was only her “second” shoot she ever did. I find that kind of hard to believe because from the photos and working with her, she did such a good job! I think she lowkey does hella shoots but doesn’t want to admit it lol. But say I was to give her the benefit of the doubt, then this “second” shoot that she had with me and the crew went well beyond our expectations. See how everything went by clicking on her photo above or clicking here.
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!
We finally had the same day off and I always wanted to shoot this outfit on her because I really liked the look of this jacket she got recently from Brandy Melville. I paired it with her Calvin Klein top she’s wearing and originally I wanted her in joggers/leggings, but she pulled the style together with some black denim. I even had her style her hair like this. So credit all goes to me her loving boyfriend lol. But I have to say that she’s getting even better and becoming less camera shy every time we shoot together!

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!
