About Me

There's no such thing as a perfect image-only a perfect moment says Joe Buissink, one of American Photo's Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to view my website. Modern Contemporary Wedding photography is Story Telling. Being a part of the couples journey in life, observing, creating and capturing moments that will be personal and timeless.

These past few years, I've been associated with a group of talented photographers here in Hawaii. Jose at Picture This Photography, Dave at Dave Miymamoto & Co., Russ at Russ Ramos Photography. They have all helped my development as a photographer, and as I continue to grow and evolve, I will always be grateful for their inspiration. As Wedding photographers, we are all different, whether its technique, shooting styles or even the equipment we use. But we all have a similar goal, we want to capture those romantic and timless images, those special moments.
