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!”
Maui Wedding Photography-John Pierre’s
Aloha Mai Maui,
Hot summer Days here in the islands this year! Thankfully, we have had an abundance of gorgeous days and a cooling ocean we can easily jump into 🙂 This is one of my favorite couples-Alex and Maxine were so cute… you could feel their love and excitement for their child to come! The beach was amazing that night as we had light trade winds and cooler temperatures. Below are a few of my fav images:
Brady 50th Anniversary Portraits on Maui-John Pierre’s Photography
Recently the Brady Clan returned to Maui to celebrate Jim & Barbara’s 50th Anniversary. I was very honored to photograph them again as I had originally been contacted to do their 40th Anniversary 10 years earlier. First off…My how the kids had grown 🙂 as some were just toddlers 10 years ago! We did the session on a beautiful green lawn behind the house they were all staying at in Kaanapali. We had a sunny, warm summers day with just the right amount of trade winds to temper the afternoon, and the lighting was fantastic. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session which are below!
Lindstrom/Piyathilake Maui Wedding-John Pierre’s Photography
Aloha from Maui…Recently in Wailea, Kerri & Hasi were married at Gannon’s Restaurant grounds. They were blessed with a large turn out of family and friends to partake in their loving memories. Leaving the hustle and bustle of New York, the city itself no less, was quite a pleasant change for everyone. They were so excited to be getting married on Maui with its gorgeous backdrop views. The weather was perfect, the sunset amazing, and Gannon’s out did themselves with their food and service. All the while DJ Dan played the tunes and entertained! In the end we pulled out all the stops for a Sparkler Finale 🙂 Enjoy some of the select images I’ve shared below of their fantastic day.
Aloha & Mahalo,
Torkelson/Rogers Maui Wedding Photography
Aloha and Mahalo for stopping by my blog today! Recently Tyler and Aviana, along with about 28 guests both family and friends, came to Maui to exchange their wedding nuptial vows. It was a beautiful evening for Maui and photography with light winds and crashing ocean surf. They were all so excited, and it was so fun to work with them all. Below are several images from their Maui wedding event which I hope you will enjoy viewing. Aloha
Callow Maui Photography Session
I recently had the pleasure of meeting the Callow family while they were here on their Maui vacation. We gathered together early one morning in order to beat the trade winds as well as the strong Maui sun and were graced with a pristine day. As with most sessions involving young children, patience and creativity was the rule of the morning and the hour we spent together. Below are just a few of the many moments captured…
Aloha & Mahalo for taking the time to enjoy my images 🙂
