Aloha, my name is Matt Tonokawa.
Hometown: Kailua, Hawaii
For those not from Hawaii, 'Chee Pono' is a Hawaiian expression of joy - likely heard from locals who just caught a clean barrel or hiked to the top of Mauna Kea.
At a very early age, I was given my nickname 'Tono.'
At the age of 18, I fell in love with capturing special moments and sharing the joy of these moments with others.
Thus, CheeTono Photography was born.
