I'm Keith. I obtained my degree in Studio Art from UNCW where I drew, painted, designed and focused in photography. Fresh out of college I married Bimini, my high school sweet heart/surf partner, and began work as staff photographer and photo editor for a surf, fashion, art and music magazine. I got to travel a bit then. It was fun. I merged photojournalistic style into wedding work and opened a studio all before moving to the beautiful garden island of Kauai. Spending time with my family, in the ocean and traveling are important to me. I have a two year old daughter whose beautiful eyes demand every free moment's gaze. She loves climbing rocks and Star Wars as much as I do. I've had the opportunity to work with notable actors, bands, models and athletes. I'm passionate about working with people. I'd be happy to work with you on any of your photographic needs.?

Awesome wedding photographer
Keith did an amazing job shooting my wedding in Kauai. He had lots of great suggestions for fun, artistic shots he wanted to capture, which was perfect since my wife and I aren't big on taking pics in the first place - his expertise was definitely appreciated.Sent on 02/10/2019
Keith is also really good at being nonintrusive while still managing to capture awesome photos. He was very respectful of our time while we chatted with our guests, and would also pop in throughout the night with shot suggestions based on the lighting as the sun set. Best part, he got us our wedding photos pretty quickly, within about 3 weeks, and they turned out fantastic.
Can't recommend him highly enough, thanks Keith!

The BEST Wedding Photographer on Kauai!
Our wedding planner suggested Keith on a list of preferred vendors she works with. After visiting his website and instantly falling in love with his work, deciding to work with Keith for our destination wedding was a no-brainer. From the moment he arrived on site, he had my (now) husband and I relaxed and so excited for the big day ahead. My husband is not a fan of getting his picture taken, but Keith made it such an enjoyable and fun experience for both of us. We didn't have to try - he just captured the magic and beauty of our perfect day. The pictures turned out far more beautiful than we could have ever imagined, and he had a sneak peek back to us within a week. We are so grateful to have such amazing photos to remind us of our wedding, forever. Your search for THE best photographer on the incredible island of Kauai ends with Keith!Sent on 11/11/2018

Keith photographed my wedding in Kauai, Feb 28th 2018. The weather was a bit dreary and it had started to rain. He was able to recommend a back up location for the ceremony that was absolutely perfect and out of the bad weather. You would've never known he was there as he was completely out of the way during the ceremony, but captured the most beautiful photos of us and my children. He was able to capture every special moment and facial expression while keeping the photos so incredibly artistic. He has an incredibly artistic eye. As an artist myself, I am super picky, but he did not disappoint! He took a dreary day and made the photos look so airy and bright. He was punctual, laid back and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera during the more "staged" photos. His editing time was super speedy and I was incredibly happy with his work. He is the definition of a true professional photographer! I would highly recommend him for your photography needs! He is a pleasure to work with!Sent on 03/23/2018
