Aloha mai kākou,

we're so happy you're here.

We've been together since we were 14 years old. Recently married & now call Oregon our (forever?) home. Aside from photography, we both have 9-5s in the non-profit sector. If we aren't at work or taking photos – we're at home hanging out with our pup, kona bonah. You might see him at your session? :)

We both grew up in a small town called Wai'anae on the Island of Oʻahu. We are both people of color (clearly lol) and we value art that offers the representation of other people of color. Through the art that we create specifically we prioritize providing opportunities that are equitable to all.

Meet Our Team


Photographer/Social Media Manager

Main photographer here! I have almost 8 years of photography experience under my belt and I have been shooting professionally for the last 4 years. I love creativity. I love capturing what's in the moment and making sure that the photos reflect our couples. My wife also says I'm kind of funny so no awkward sessions here!


Editor/Logistics Manager

9 times out of 10, you'll be communicating with me! I focus on ALLLL the details. My editing style includes a ton of earthy tones and grain – while still trying to preserve the original colors in the photo. I also take a different approach to editing so that our full galleries feel like a story of  love! If this is your vibe, let's chat!

One of our main goals at Shotsbyjxn is to create a safe space for everyone – this includes while we are talking through text/email/dm and while we're out during our session. We really value the experience of others so our clients will always be our priority!
