Ka Palapala Po’okela Awards

Mahalo to the Hawai’i Book Publishers Association who hired us to photograph the 2010 Ka Palapala Po’okela Awards. The awards are presented to recognize and honor the best of Hawaii book publishing. It was a beautiful event, with dozens of Hawaii's most talented authors, many local celebrities and wonderful entertainment by Keith and Carmen Haugen and Frank Uehara and Pa’ahana. And we couldn't leave out Collins Kawai, one of Hawai’i's most excellent chocolatiers who made over a thousand delicious chocolates for the event.

More photos to come, and the whole shoot will be available on our smugmug website very soon. I'll post again here with a link to the gallery as soon as they're up. Congratulations again to all the winners!
