Hi Im Kela and I am embracing a new age of portrait and wedding photography in which I am determined to capture the beauty in the realness and authenticity of the moment. It is not about poses or plastered on smiles, it is about feeling something when you see a photo and thinking to yourself "wow I can tell how genuinely happy I was in this moment." I believe real and beautiful moments in time are the most worthwhile images one can take. Mahalo"

"To me Photography can be many careers rolled into one and at all times I am readily available as a counselor, psychiatrist, comedian, and an artist. When I'd laid down the foundations of my skills in shooting, I began really focusing on the people and letting the shots just happen, rather than trying to stage and press each and every shot. Instead of referring to a palette of colors or a repertoire of canned shots, I relax and laugh with the people I'm privileged enough to work with. It's my firm belief that this is the real route to capturing -- As cliché as that word is when dealing in photography -- the real fundamentals of who a person is. Remove the aspect of a performance from it, forget about the matte black machine between you and them, and the honesty comes through in the shot. To me, that's what makes my photography what it is. The root of how, and why, I do what I do".

I've been working as a photographer professionally for 9 years now. I started my photography career in the action sports industry of Southern California, photographing surfing and clothing-lines for some of the industries biggest names like Volcom and Hurley. I love to travel and my adventures led me to Hawaii where I fell in love with the island of Maui and its people. 5 years ago my wife and I got married and moved to Maui the very next day! Since then we have made a beautiful life here raising our two children and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us. Growing up I took in as much art and information as I could about photography. I learned from any photographer that would let me tag along and I took every photo class I could find. I went on to graduate from Cal State Long Beach with a degree in Digital Media Arts. I feel very fortunate to make my living capturing memories for couples and families here on the island of Maui. I feel very blessed to have been apart of so many peoples lives that I would have never met had it not been for photography and being able to capture memories that they will cherish for years to come has been the most fulfilling experience! I am thankful everyday for this opportunity to follow my passion for portrait photography!
