John Pierres Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    What started out as a 10th grade school project for biology class has turned into a career that has allowed John to travel the world and make a living doing something he loves. As a graduate of the famous Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Calif., John has a delicate focus and understanding of light and how it can flatter a subject. Initially starting his career doing Commercial /Advertising assignments, John later moved into Weddings and Family Portraits. When asked what he is most passionate about he simply said, "My passion and desire is to make people look their best while allowing them to be themselves. My career in photography has given me the opportunity to meet people of all walks of life and have so many memorable experiences. We are all so different, yet so much the same!"

Aloha Everyone and thank you for following my posts …Yup, I’m bad as it has been a bite since my last post. Recently Jeff, Lyndsay, and Kennedy were back on Maui and this time they we accompanied by Jeff’s parents and his Grandfather. It was so awesome to see 4 generations all here enjoying Maui. Below are just a few of the many amazing images, captured from little Kennedy’s point of view, on another beautiful day in paradise.

I love these mages and what the eyes say to you! Sometime they are covered, but you can still tell what they are saying about their Maui Wedding Day.  Fell free to contact me with any questions as I am happy to help, and a giant Mahalo for checking my blog out!


Aloha from Maui,

I had the sweatiest couple last weekend that chose to have a morning wedding. The colors of the ocean at that time of day are always so vivid, and we were blessed with lighter winds. After their wedding vows they went off and had a awesome breakfast, plus enjoyed the rest of the day watching whales and checking out Maui. What a great way to start your day! Here are a few of my favorites:

Aloha to all,

As promised I am posting more images from my daughters and mines recent trip down under to Australia. We had so much fun thanks to my many Aussie mates that dialed us in and helped us about! So, I just had to throw this one is of the wedding couple below. There were actually two couples within 50 yards of one another and what was challenging for them is that there is construction, lots of tourists as well as locals walking all around them, and its about 100 degrees and high humidity! My hats off to the photographers and their assistants!

Some really cool buildings to take pictures of and the mix of architectural styles were just paces away.

Really cool older rocker just jamming away on the street…

Sydney’s Circular Quay at night was really impressive.

Kicking back with my daughter Serena

Really fun to pet the locals!

Here we are in a typical tourist photo on the way to the Blue Mountains national park :-)…  The other side of that fence is close to a 400 ft drop straight down! Just standing there was scary.

IF you look to the far right of this image you can see itty bitty people at another look out.  Helps give it all some scale to how grand it is up there.

There was a really cool rail train car (supposed to be the steepest in the world) that took you down to the canyons floor where you could walk around.

Down in Melbourne we found all these really fun brightly painted beach shacks.  They are individually owned and super popular although not cheap.

This is the view from a house we stayed in in Lorne.  Lorne is a super quaint little town with awesome trails to hike and yummy restaurants.

A few of the locals on the deck checking in for a snack.

The tides there really swing up and down a lot.  This is at low tide (really different erosion patterns on the rocks) and when the tides in they are all under water.

Downtown Lorne off in the distance …fantastic beach walk with Serena, Wally, and Jan!

Part of the Great Ocean Road War Memorial. It’s 151 miles of the most scenic coast line there is and was made by the returning soldiers from WWI and dedicated to the soldiers that did not come home. No heavy equipment in those days! Amazing!!!

Aloha and welcome back …Mikelle & Joey recently tied the knot on a gorgeous day in Kapalua Maui.  Family and friends were treated to a warm still afternoon with beautiful light.  I love the light in the images of the kids walking in as well as the bride and her dad entering the beach. Below are a few of my favorites.  See you next time and Aloha-
