"Speechless. Its a word that is not usually associated with me...but...going through the images you created from this past Kukahi (and last year too), I find that words are hard to come by - that would suffice to describe what you've captured. I see the beauty and grace of the movements - passed down from the dim past....reflected and emblazoned into the here and now. Your ability to see that through a lens, reveals much about the power of intuitive on-the-spot observation within you. You've honed that talent down to your very core. This a hallmark that we Kumu Hula admire greatly. As I enter into the last few years (if that) of my career - and doing these kinds of concerts, I am grateful to have crossed paths with you. The images youve captured - encapsulate my 30 years of teaching....and thousands of years hula. When our time here on earth is "pau" (finished), these and the works you and I created will remain."

"Amazing artist. So kind. Very generous and true genius."
- Jennifer M. (Professional Photographer), Dallas, Tx.
"Yesterday we experienced one of the most memorable and positively the best photo sessions hands down...We've made a friend for life! Quite simply put, his attention to detail, positive charisma, extreme talent and sheer vision is unparalleled to anyone we've worked with ever. I'm very much about the little details having worked alongside Hollywood creatives for many years and my wife had a vision of what we wanted to capture in her baby bump pics; Anthony mastered and captured everything we could have possibly dreamed it to be. Thank you Anthony! You're an ultimate professional, truly talented and absolutely the coolest to work with! Looking forward to capturing many more family moments on Maui in the years ahead...Many Thanks and Much Love, Lauren & Mike"

"Anthony did such an amazing job on our wedding pictures! We not only received our pictures quickly, every picture was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. He was easy to work with, fun, and has the artistic eye for beautiful shots! You won't be disappointed in choosing Lumiere. Thank you again Anthony for the lifelong memories we will cherish forever!"

"Awesome guy who does outstanding work, highly recommended!"
- Magnus D. (Professional Photographer), Oslo, Norway
"I absolutely adore Anthony! I had Anthony do my professional photographs a year ago to promote and market my business as a yoga teacher. The entire shoot went very smoothly and he made me feel very relaxed and comfortable within this two hour photo shoot. He is professional, talented, and a kind gentle soul. The perfect combination in my books for a successful business! I have used most of the photos that we did together and am looking forward to our next session. Mahalo Anthony the best of the best!
- Tenya M. (Yoga Instructor), Maui, Hi.

- Jordan C. (Structural Steel Detailer), Bend, Or.
"Anthony and Paula were unbelievable! Such a pleasure to work with and the shots turned out better than I would have ever hoped for. They instantly make you feel comfortable and obviously know what they are doing. This was great for me as I need a lot of direction. The photos completely captured the essence of our wedding; the beauty, the people and the joy! I could not recommend them more. Honestly."
- Amanda & Cyrus, (Producer, Human Interface Design at Apple Inc.), San Francisco, Ca.
"Anthony and his assistant were absolutely FANTASTIC to work with!! They showed up on the day of the wedding and instantly made us feel comfortable and excited! They were professional yet fun and all of our guests commented on how great they were. The pictures turned out absolutely stunning, I cannot recommend them enough!!!"
- Stephanie C., Los Angeles, Ca.
"Talented, Professional, Engaging and Personable!! We love the compositions and editing for the photos. The communication during the session and after has been stellar! Highly recommend."
- Troy C., Playa Del Rey, Ca.
"Anthony did a photo shoot for my family on vacation in Hawaii and we could not have been any happier. The service was amazing and after 5 mins of talking I can tell he knew exactly what we wanted. My mom and g/f were so pleased with our pictures we are talking about flying him out for my wedding! Thank you again Anthony the amazing service!"
- Adam Z., Orange County, Ca.
"We had a mini family reunion a few weeks ago in Maui and based on a friend's recommendation we hired Anthony to take some family photos. WOW. Exceeded Expectations. We had three generations there, and we all got photos together with spouses, with just our family, with all the family, etc. Anthony was working so quickly and seamlessly that it seemed more like a social event than a photo shoot. I have to say, that might be why we all look so happy in the photos :)
He is a gifted photographer who worked equally well with my 4 year old and my 73 year old dad, bringing out the best in each of us. Love. My Christmas card is going to kill it this year. Yes, he showed up on time with all of his equipment set up and ready to go. He brought a variety of cameras, lenses, and lighting. He delivered the photos as promised. I know, details count! Thanks so much for capturing our rowdy bunch."
