Aloha, I’m Mark Holladay Lee. I’m a husband, father, surfer and photographer. I didn’t realize how much I would love being a professional photographer until I became a father while living in New York City. All the creative energy in that city combined with all the emotions of becoming a dad, lit up my passion with the camera. I was able to learn from some great photographers while living in the city, but my earliest learning with the art, goes back to childhood when I watched my mother work as a photographer. I remember how she crafted a darkroom in whatever house we lived in and decorated our home with pictures from our family travels. She gave me my first camera and first studio lights.

Fast forward several years and here I am living in Hawaii with my family, enjoying every minute of combining my love of people with my love of creating art. I not only photograph people with studio lights, but I photograph in the ocean, from a helicopter, at the beach, in the mountains, and other incredible locations throughout Hawaii. I may sometimes act as a fly on the wall, documenting a moment as it naturally unfolds. Other times I may be actively posing a large group of people in a formal setting. Many times I am capturing life with my family, freezing memories that bring us so much joy to look back on. I would be honored to capture your memories with artistic images that I guarantee you will be thrilled with. I look forward to meeting you!

    Mark Holladay Lee is a special soul out to make the world even more beautiful one stunning photograph at a time. My Husband and I had the pleasure of being captured in the most joyful time of our lives by Mark; at our wedding he was “the fly on the wall” but also very interactive in an light, airy wonderful way. he alows for a very natural procession and comfortable experience. Mark also photographed us under water at Waimea Bay on the North Shore of Oahu (a fabulous spot). safety gear was available and this was also a very unique and great experience. i thank my lucky stars that we chose Mark when i think back on all the choices i had in photographers and how im sure that none of them would have made our day as perfect. you will never go wrong with Mark and he will never go wrong with you. Mahalo 🙂

    Are you available between 28 Jan and 6 Feb to take family photos in the northshore? We are hoping to get photos in a natural setting i.e beach and there would be 6 adults and 2 kids (3 & 1).
