Tesoro Photography is all about capturing photos of moments you treasure.

But who are we?


Melissa Pearce

I first fell for photography when I was little, shooting snails and rosebushes with my little 110mm camera. As I grew older, I realized it was people I really loved to photograph. After high school, I studied photography at the University of the Nations in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I worked at a film and print lab for a year and then I spent the next two years working as a lead photographer for a local studio, where I predominantly shot weddings and designed albums. I married my husband, Randy, in 2006 and we had our first little cuddlebug in March of 2008, and our second in June 2009. (Phew, I know that was fast, but we wouldn’t trade them for anything!) I LOVE being a mom. I also LOVE sushi, stationery, fast lenses and my Lord and Savior, Jesus. I grew up speaking English and Spanish, hence the name of our company, “Tesoro,” which means “treasure.”

I have been interested in photography for a while, but of course, when I met Mel, I really got into it. I have been her assistant and second shooter for a couple of years now, and she tells me I rock.
