Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Shot on Pa’ako Beach (AKA, Secret Cove, Wedding Beach) Makena, Maui. This is the most stunning and smallest beach that I have ever seen, this was shot on the 16th May, the day before my 50th birthday and the day before our vow renewal ceremony to celebrate 25 years of marriage, and what better place to do it.

This place is pure magic, i was taken there by Sharon and Jacob Mau, ( Sharon Mau ) the night of our ceremony, on the night Randy Jay Braun came along as a witness.

Pure magic! the only frustration was that I wasn’t allowed to take my camera, got to wait and see what JJ shot JJ Preston

And here is a plug for Maui Wedding Planners they rock!

Shot on a Nikon D700, 17-35mm Nikkor lens, Cokin ND8/2 grads, warming filter, sky processed in photomatrix and photoshop.

Hi, Kia Ora from New Zealand, i have recently moved to Papamoa in the Bay of Plenty. I have spent the last thirty years taking photos, I love capturing images, especially ones that only I saw, only I was silly enough to get up at that time to catch the sunrise, photography is a wonderful thing, capture an image and you preserve the moment forever, miss it, and its lost forever.

Hope that you enjoy these images.
