Honolulu, Hawaii


Lindsay and John approached us a couple of weeks back in regards to some sunset photos for their engagement photography, and naturally, we were all about it. Shooting sunsets provides the most rewarding yet challenging things we deal with as photographers. That being, extremely finicky yet super prime light in very small windows. In the blink of an eye, the sun dips below the horizon and goodbye light! It’s always fun seeing what sorts of different looks we can accomplish with different couples.

Working with these two was awesome — having a good report with my couples is of the utmost importance, and once I can establish that, I can breathe and have fun with it, which is when I feel as though I do my best work. Of course, everything I just said above holds true for how my couples view me, so it’s always a two way street! With John + Lindsay this was completely effortless. We are blessed to seemingly always work with such amazing couples, and just downright awesome people. Thanks you two, enjoy your wedding, we look forward to seeing you two at some point in the future!


Guyton & Chelsie Galdeira celebrated their wedding day at the beautiful Luolu Palms on the North Shore of Oahu. They had everything planned out to be stress free, fun and perfect which is exactly how the day turned out. From the decorations, to the live band and the whole Hula show everything that they did had a lot of thought and preparation put into it. Congratulations to the two of you and we wish you the best!


We met Cody and Tes over a year ago, when we all sat down to discuss the possibility of us capturing their Engagement and Wedding Photos and Videos. It’s hard to imagine that it has been that long, and even harder to imagine the amount that┬áhas changed in that time for us as photographers.

Through the entire process, Cody and Tes were receptive to our input, gave us great ideas of their own, and were nothing but an absolute pleasure to work with. Although much has changed for us since we first met Cody and Tes, their simple and casual approach to all of our shoots always translated to a great product, one that we were proud to display for everyone to see. It’s couples like Cody and Tes that make us step back and realize that we are the lucky ones. To be entrusted in capturing these two individuals’ biggest day never felt stressful — it felt right.

Congratulations you two, thanks for being the most important part of Pure Media Hawaii.

Jeffrey + Anya celebrated their wedding day at the beautiful Ocean Crystal Chapel. It also happened to be Easter, and we were treated to a beautiful sunset after they said their vows. Congratulations to you both!


We were really excited at the opportunity to shoot down around chinatown with Shandon + Jermaine, being that the setting provides us with a different backdrop than what we normally shoot around. We love beaches — don’t get it twisted — we just love new perspectives and fresh setting equally. We were treated to as good of a sunset as we could have asked for as well, with the water giving some gorgeous reflections of the sunset over Honolulu Harbor. We look forward to working with you both on the video and eventually on the wedding day, thanks again for being so flexible!


A grey and rainy morning thankfully gave way to a gorgeous sun and perfect shooting conditions on this day a couple of weeks ago. This family of 3 — Makani + Naomi and their little one Elia — embody what a family unit really means. Thanks for having me around to witness the awesome chemistry that exists between the three of you.


Davon and Robin approached us somewhat last minute — and thankfully we were available to capture their intimate wedding day. Thankfully for US, that is. These two are completely and entirely meant for one another, that much is clear within a few minutes of spending time with the two of them. It’s couples like Davon and Robin that make us look at the people we are lucky enough to call our clients in awe. Thank you two so much for reminding us that true, exceptional, unfaltering and unconditional love is what makes the world go round. We wish you two nothing but the very best in all of your travels, experiences, and endeavors together.
