Born and raised in Hawaii, John started his photography career as a mall Santa photographer. He had fine art aspirations, but quickly realized that breaking into that world as a broke (but ambitious) 18-year-old was about as likely as showing up in Hollywood and immediately booking an Oscar-winning role.
From crying toddlers, he went on to taking tableside photos at a fancy seafood restaurant (he was literally the guy who would interrupt your romantic dinner to ask if you wanted to buy a photo, pre-smart phone), and then worked at the Hyatt Maui doing beach family sessions. He shadowed photographers, and eventually opened his own photography studio, JMC Photography Maui.

9 Reviews for Lili & John
From the start, they were so helpful in easing my stress and helping to make sure my day would go smoothly. They graciously helped me work through my timelines, something they didn’t even have to do!
Not only are they so talented and professional, but they made us feel like family instantly and they were so fun to be around. Not to mention, they were so efficient with pictures which meant we actually got to enjoy our reception!
We love you John and Lili and we can’t wait to use you again!!
