About Us

Keoni and John met while working together in Hawaii as photographers aboard a dinner cruise ship which also did whale watching tours during whale season (the best part of the job). They both started down their own paths of photography, shooting numerous weddings, events, and fashion portraits. After a few years Keoni decided he wanted a change of climate (sunny Hawaii to rainy Seattle??! Must be crazy!!). In 2013 John, a Seattle native, and Keoni decided to open up a photography studio together in Seattle.

Keoni was born in Hawaii on the island of Oahu, and is blessed to be a dual citizen of Switzerland and the USA. He is an adventurer and passionate world traveler who has visited numerous parts of the world including Indonesia, Israel, Europe, Japan, South America and most recently New Zealand. Keoni has developed his photographic style through shooting for various magazines, newspapers, and studios which has given him a unique blend of photojournalism and fashion.
John was born and raised near Seattle, Washington. In 2006 he moved to Oahu to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa, but returned to Seattle after graduating. He is an avid automotive enthusiast, and loves to cook. John has spent time shooting auto sports, fashion, photojournalism, and weddings. Most recently he has taken up food photography, and has shot for several local Seattle restaurants
