My name is Trish. I'm a wedding photographer + lifestyle family photographer based on Maui, serving the world + specializing in R A D N E S S O N F I L M.
I like my photos to be like my life; clean is great, but a little bit M E S S Y I S R E A L and that's where my sweet spot is.
L A U G H T E R is my favorite. Will Farrell, Mike Meyers, Saturday Night Live. These are my guilty pleasures. Oh and baked goods. And cheese...
I have a gift for making people feel completely at ease in front of the camera. I find this odd being that I, myself, am THE MOST AWKWARD PHOTO SUBJECT... EVER...
I am H O N E S T + R E A L. So are my photos. (I'm also a little nuts. But in a good way)
Favorite things: my kids, the color blue, B E A U T I F U L L I G H T, margaritas, high heeled boots, and jeans that make my butt look amazing which they don't seem to make anymore.
Pet Peeves: Monsanto, judgmental people, bystanding, anyone chewing a banana or bagel with cream cheese, directly in my ear, with their mouth open.
You've worked hard to plan this day just right. You've carefully decided who will be there to celebrate with you and you've dreamed and imagined this day over and over. Having stellar photos is a must, and in order for that to happen, you need to trust me. Here's why you totally can:
- You will look amazing in your photos. End of story. Ever seen a photo that you super love? But then you see your face, or the way your standing, and you're like... ugh... no... never sharing that one. That will not happen when you hire me. I can feel what looks right. I can feel when you are truly being you. And I know how to pose you so you look your best. I'm not interested in just taking photos. I'm interested in taking photos of YOU that YOU WILL LOVE. I have been told, over and over, that I'm magic because people finally have photos of themselves that they love.
- You will be able to relax and have fun. Before your wedding, I connect with you and get all of the information that I need to make sure that I'll deliver what you're expecting. From the special details that you want captured to your group shot lists, to what is most important to you. I make sure I'm completely clear on what you want so that you can relax into your day, and I can take things from there. I keep things on time and I have a natural knack for working with people. I'll direct and move you and your guests in a way where you get the shots you want whilst we're all are having fun.
- You will love your photos AND the process of having them taken! Just so you know, I don't take every client that comes to me. I genuinely care more that we're a good fit than just making another booking. But if we are a good fit, it's gonna be rad...
- You will be covered. Cause I'm paranoid and am blessed/cursed with foresight. And because I can make the best out of any situation. I've been doing this for 10+ years so any kind of nightmare situation you can imagine? I've lived through it. I literally had a wedding where all 4 of my film cameras died, one after the other. It was THE WORST. But you know what, that client had no idea. Because I kept shooting and kept pulling out backups because I am prepared. And I didn't cry (even though I may have wanted to) because I am a professional and I'm there to rock your wedding no matter what. So, gail force winds? We're gonna make amazing photos. Down pouring rain? We're gonna make amazing photos. You can trust that I will make the absolute best of any situation that comes up and I will genuinely enjoy the process of doing so. It's just who I am.
