July is Almost Gone!!!

I can’t believe how fast time is going by! Part of me feels like Grace has always been with us (because I don’t remember what it was like without her), but the other part of me feels like she just got here!
She is rolling over, trying to sit up, and she LOVES to have a conversation with you, her toys or even herself!
Brooklyn is growing too. She just graduated and will be going to a new school soon-photos coming soon!
We all want to grow up so fast as a kid, but then once you do grow up, get out of college, make a career for yourself and settle down-when you want time to slow down- it really flies by!
We always say if only there were only more time in a day, since I’ve had kids I’ve often wished for more time in a min!!

this is her typical face if she’s not smiling or crying…it’s the “thinking face”

smiling at my friend

Brooklyn LOVES her baby sister…she was so excited to take pictures with her. typically she wants nothing of studio type shots- but this time she couldn’t get enough!

what a ham!

Ok so I have been a bad video blogger… promise to get better. We are testing some new things on the blog right now so please pardon any craziness in the near future. But hopefully some great new things will come out of it! Stay tuned!

Let Freedom Ring….

Well since today is the 4th of July and it’s all about freedom, we figured today would be the perfect day to announce our annual FREE Wedding Photography contest! As some of you may know every year we take a stock photo trip or two and we always so INSPIRED by the different surroundings we talk about how cool it would be to shoot a wedding in one of these great locations around the world! Being on this little group of islands is AWESOME, however these islands are small and after shooting here for quite some time we have pretty much covered every area of the island regularly requested for weddings. As every city has hot spots so do we and while we enjoy shooting in a familiar place, sometimes we just want something different- even if it is a different place in Hawaii! Hawaii has a lot of really cool urban areas- but you wouldn’t know it because no one dares to shoot there- most of the brides we encounter want the beach or a pretty park- understandably because it is beautiful! But we are looking for something not only attractive to the eye, but different and so to get it we are willing to give away free wedding coverage and not just in Hawaii but anywhere in the world!
Yep that is correct two free wedding photographers to cover your event anywhere in the world! So what is the catch you say?
Here is how to enter:
1. -Send us a recent color snapshot of the two of you via email
2. -Send us your love story, we are all about who, what, when, where, why and how- so please tell all the more we know the better your chances! Funny, Sad, Happy, just inspire us!
3. -Why you feel we should choose your wedding over others
4. -Tell us about your wedding plans: date, location, any other details associated with the event
5. -And of course your contact information: email, address, phoneRules:
1. All entries must be submitted by email to

by Aug 30, 2008 , any entries received after midnight (12:00am) HST on Sep 1, 2008 will not be accepted.
Entries that are not complete will not be accepted (we must have all of the above info to accept the application)
2. Location and Date must already be set- winners subject to available dates only from January 1, 2009-Jan 1, 2010.
3. Winners cover the COST of travel and accommodations for time necessary to fully document the event (average3-4 days)- we do the rest.
Airplane tickets, a hotel and meals while working. That’s it. We don’t need the red carpet treatment, simply get us there and a room where you are staying or nearby where you will be getting hitched and we are all set! Whatever extra time we stay (or if we come early) will be out of our own pocket!
4. Winners will be announced on October 1, 2008 and notified by phone and email.

Here is what is included in our free services:
1. As with all of our events winners will get a private online gallery and ordering site along with 4×6 printed proofs of their choice number determined by hours we shoot, Unlimited number of images shot by both Cassandra and David Dieterle, full resolution images on disk.
2. Here is what is different… time restrictions don’t apply in the same way they do for our other events! “In other words, we will be at your disposal for the rehearsal AND all the way through the wedding (times and dates for these will be discussed and finalized weeks prior to your event.) So if you want to do engagement, bridal, rehearsal, and wedding AND the day after the wedding, you’d like to go out and get some “extra” portraits (on the beach…under a waterfall…in a sea kayak…top of the Eiffel Tower) without having to worry about your dress, we are THERE!!!”
There are no strings attached–you won’t be charged tax, forced to buy anything else if you don’t want to, or anything like that. This is solely an opportunity for us to give a deserving couple something that we hope they will treasure. Feel free to send this entry to your deserving friends.

Val and Malu

Val and Malu hold a special place in my heart! I photographed Val quite sometime ago before we ever planned on taking on weddings. She was beautiful then and as you can see nothing has changed! Always a great time with old friends! Can’t wait till the big day!

Couldn’t resist splashing!
