Mahalo Dedication for Christian Gausin

ALOHA…!!!

It is difficult to place together a blog post that can possibly put me into tears but this is a post that needs to be given to person that deserves it by one no other.

There comes a time when a person comes to someone’s life and makes a difference.  Such a person can make life great and can also make life bad.  When that person gives you the positives then you have found a gem.  Christian Gausin is one of those rare gems of a person that me and the team at TWP have found.

Christian also known as Chris, Gauser and P-Lover became one of the most decorated teammate in TWP’s long history.  Ten years ago I was set to retire from Photography and then another gem Matthew Callueng made Wedding Photography FUN again.  Chris on the other hand made TWP Wedding Photography more than just fun, it made TWP Strong – TEAM STRONG.

As my Journey in Wedding Photography continued in my early 30’s, I realized that having a strong team is important to get through the whole year.  Me and Matt had long conversations on who we could recruit.  During the summer of 2011, Chris has been one of my long time followers.  Eversince 2009, he gave comments and even left me private messages giving me countless compliments on TWP wedding photography.  I just can’t believe this guy is always liking all my posts.  He is a friend of Matt and Tony.  Finally, I asked Chris myself to join us in a shoot.

Marcia and Wil’s Engagement began Chris’ career in helping TWP create amazing photographs.  Chris was dedicated, strong, and always cheerful.  For a big man, he was a bundle of joy and never moody.  In some cases, he doesn’t act his size.  I loved his energy and most specially the positive vibes he gave to the team.

Chris is a Hard Worker and Never Missed any Weddings or Shoots for FIVE YEARS.  That’s RIGHT – FIVE YEARS.  He later got other Jobs during times when TWP was Slow.  This showed me that despite some of the Challenges and Hardships we faced, he stayed with me and the team.

Wedding Photography – ALL Year is a Grind.  There are times that I’m not 100  Percent.  During the Seasons 21-23 – we photographed 40 Weddings and 40 engagement sessions per year plus maternity and family photos as well.  Chris made every shoot and every wedding day easier for everyone.  Chris always wanted to be there even when he is also not feeling well.  He is more than just loyal – Chris is OHANA….!!!

Chris became our Lead Lighting – and Support.  All of the photos with Filled Lighting is mostly because of him these past 6 years.  He also became a Mentor to Clarence, John Rondina, Patrick Recendez and Dr House when they got aboard.  He carried all the heavy gear making it so much more easier for me.  Chris’ knew the STRESS that I go through during the Wedding days.  He understood the system that I have implied to him and the rest of the team to photograph a successful wedding.  He endured with me some of the most difficult situations so that we could just get the money shots.  He worked side by side with Matthew to get the very best reception lighting – making sure all the reception banquets are well lit from Front to Back.  Chris was more than exceptional, he was a Captain…!!!

Chris was able to travel with me pretty much almost everywhere.  We had lots of long “Kuya” (big brother) talks in the Van.  We had lots of personal things discussed during trials as well.  We talked and supported each other.  Best of all, he is family – he is Ohana.  Each time we are together, makes the work so much easier and fun.

Another Amazing thing about Chris is how in the World ALL the LADIES LOVE HIM?  I tell ya, all the ladies at the weddings can’t get enough of him.  The moment Chris speaks to the leadies, he seemed to have a way with them.  I have seen with my own two eyes how we would MELT, literally MELT the HEARTS of so many Ladies at the weddings.  He is Charming and Sweet.  He loves to Dance, maybe that is why too.  Best of all, he is a Gentleman and he is professional with them.

Chris loved all the Ladies – yet, he loved wedding photography as well.  I have seen first hand that he always wants to a part of every wedding and every shoot.  He was a mainstay and a rock – making sure all the gear worked and nothing was missing.  Yes, there were times something dropped or something is lost.  We were never perfect but Chris makes sure that all the negative things that can happen during the wedding days never happen.  This is why TWP became one of the BEST wedding photography Brand that hundreds of ALOHA COUPLES have chosen these past 10 years.

CHRIS – FROM ALL of Us here at TWP and the ALOHA COUPLES – we wish all the Very Best in your new Chapter in Life.  Remember what I have always told ALL of YOU GUYS… Once TWP will ALWAYS be TWP.  You will always have a home here at TWP.  You are welcome here anytime.  When you do come back in town and you want your SPOT – it will be waiting for you.

Thank you Christian Gausin for ALL you have done for Me and My family.  I became a Successful Wedding Photographer and you were a big part of it.  This dedication was one of the most difficult things I had to do in my professional career as a photographer – to say see you later, NOT GOODBYE – BUT SEE YOU LATER to one of the most Genuine and Nicest person I know.

You Broddah have given me the JOYS of what Wedding Photography is all about.  Its all about the Bride and the Groom.  TWP will never be the same without you MAN…!!!  Again, from all of us here from TWP – Myself, Matthew Callueng, Darren Kyle Ramos, Justin Baron, Clarence Gonzalez, Patrick Recendez, Joseph Aquino, Jon Racasa, Matt Rondina, John Papa, RJ Edrosa, Jonathan Garcia, Daniel Palma and ofcourse my Lovely Family Che, Jayden Allen and Jered Alden —- Plus the rest of the Ohana and Aloha Couples….

MAHALO NUI LOA – CHRIS….!!!!!   WE Will Miss You Broddah…!!!  WE LOVE YOU….!!!  SEE YOU LATER – P-LOVER….!!!
