While most of my trip to Oahu was spent in Honolulu, I did manage to break away from the crowded city for a day to photograph the Mae family up on the North Shore. After a beautiful drive up the coast on the Windward side of the island (with a few stops for photos, of course) we made it to Turtle Bay Resort with just enough light left for a fun family photo session. Although it was cloudy and a bit windy, we had a great time and came out with some fun photos.

A big thanks goes out to my buddy (and aspiring photographer) Mike from Hawaii Kai for helping out with the shoot….and for the ride up the coast….and for being a tour guide….I owe you man!

The girls are ready for their closeup….

Now for something a little unrelated to wedding photography, but very cool nonetheless. Last year I worked on a story for The New York Times about the rehabilitation of Micheal Vick’s fighting pit bulls at an animal sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. You can view a multimedia piece with all the photos here.

Well, to my surprise, one of the photos used for that story was picked up by National Geographic and has been published in the April edition of the magazine, on newsstands right now.

Here it is:

And here’s the original photo. Lucas was one of Vick’s champion fighters, the scars were a real telling factor of how brutal the dog fighting can be. I remember hesitating a bit when they invited me into the cage to photograph him, only to find out Lucas was one of the nicest dogs I had ever met….

Okay, so I’m a bit addicted to blogging. Here’s a few more shots from paradise….
