MAHALO
Thank You...

Hi, I’m John Lyons, I photograph elegant, classic & timeless weddings for stylish & fun couples.

As a devoted husband and father who loves love, my family and my friends, capturing the moment when you start your own family is deeply meaningful to me.

Your Wedding Photos

YOUR FIRST FAMILY HEIRLOOM

I believe that the printed photograph is your first family heirloom.

I love weddings, family and friends coming together to celebrate not only your love, but the beginning of your family. OHANA, the Hawaiian word for family, guides everything I do.

When I photograph the reception venue at a wedding, I’m always profoundly moved by the “memory or tribute table” – the beautifully decorated display near the entrance with wedding photos of the parents, grandparents, and other important family members, some still living, some gone.

On your wedding day, I know that the photos I take of you will be placed at a similar table at your children’s, grandchildren’s, even your great-grandchildren’s  wedding.

This is your legacy. This is your first family heirloom.

No Keia La, No Keia Po, A Mau Loa

From this day, from this night, forever more.

~ Hawaiian Proverb

OHANA

Ohana means family – and so much more. It’s the people in your life who bound together by genuine compassion, culture, support, loyalty and love for each other.

My Ohana – my family, my friends, my community – is the most important thing to me. I value their love, loyalty and support more than anything.

When I am trusted to photograph your family – your Ohana – I am truly honoured.

MAHALO

Mahalo can simply mean thank you. But like Ohana, it’s true meaning is much deeper. It’s a spirit of gratitude, respect and even admiration.

Every day I am grateful for my family, my friends, my health and the health of my family. I have a career that I am extremely passionate about and that almost every weekend I am trusted to document the beginning of a brand new family.

How important are these two words to me? Well, I have them tattooed on my arms – so everyday I, and the people around me, can see what is most important to me.
