Gordon first held a camera in his hands at ten years old. Instantly charmed by the magic of the Kodak Brownie inherited from his grandmother, he became infatuated with this tool that would later be instrumental in his life’s work. While at Trinity University, Gordon studied portraiture and opened his first photography studio and within months shot his first wedding at the young age of twenty two. After graduation, Gordon traveled the world in his 20's for adventure and knowledge and wound up it Tokyo where he was hired as a TV commercial producer. Producing and directing commercials gave Gordon a skill he would put to good use later directing thousands of wedding couples from around the globe.
Gordon spent his childhood on the beaches of Galveston, a resort island off the coast of Texas. After visiting Hawaii, Gordon decided to upgrade his island lifestyle by moving to Maui in 1997. On Maui, Gordon Nash established one of the first wedding photography & planning studios in the Hawaiian Islands. Today, Gordon continues to approach every photo shoot with vibrancy and excitement.
Named the "Maui Wedding Mogul" by Rangefinder Magazine, today Gordon works diligently in his wedding studio that has stood for photographic excellence for more than a decade. Gordon’s work has appeared in numerous magazine and books such as Nikon World, Rangefinder Magazine and multiple photography how to books published by Amherst Media. Regularly Nikon publishes his photos in various catalogs to advertise their wide range of digital cameras and lenses.
Mixing fashion, magazine editorial and photojournalism styles, Gordon photographs weddings at all the major resorts in Hawaii including the Four Seasons Lanai, Fairmont Kea Lani, Marriott Outrigger and Makena Beach and Golf Resort. Gordon is trusted by his clients to always raise the bar on his photography and produce portfolio quality images at every event. Capturing every precious moment for newlyweds is Gordon's life's work and he is devoted to his couple's by continually sharpening his photographic skills and techniques to bring them images that surpass their high expectations and industry standards.
