One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer in Hawaii is how many intimate weddings and elopements I get to be a part of. There’s something so pure and magical about two people alone on a beach pledging to love each other forever. Gets me every time. As everyone knows, Hawaii is one of the most beautiful destinations on the planet. This allows opportunities for breathtaking wedding photos. However, we can always do better! So I’ve put together five tips to make your small wedding or elopement more photogenic!

I want my couples to completely trust me to authentically capture their weddings, and part of that is getting to know them before their day. But because I live on the small Hawaiian island of Kauai, many couples I shoot for are not local, instead they have hired me online to photograph their dream destination wedding. Destination weddings can be tricky, because often I won’t get to meet my bride in person before the big day. This creates a challenge because I want you to enjoy your time, as well as get the great photos you want. Hawaii is one of the most popular places for destination weddings, because of this I have put together a list of 4 things to consider before your Hawaii wedding.

I’m truly impressed each and every time I photograph Bri and little Miss T. Every year, for the past three years, I’ve been given the wonderful opportunity to capture a few meaningful moments between this mother-daughter duo. The bond between these two is infectious, plus, who doesn’t love a fun day at the beach? Check […]

It’s been said before and I believe it to be true – Kauai is for lovers. The romance is thick in the air. This is why so many people travel here to fall in love, be married, honeymoon, and pop the big question! I am all about the love vibes and you can imagine my […]

You know what I’m afraid of? Mango sap, snakes, and poison ivy. You know what I’m NOT afraid of? PDA. In fact, I am all about it, especially when I’m photographing a gorgeous and super in-love couple like Brenda and Scott at Moloaa Bay, who were constantly stealing kisses and wrapping themselves up in each […]

The topic of discussion for today is none other than a Poipu Beach Day themed family portrait with Bri & T, super fun gals from Kauai. If the names or faces look familiar to you, it’s because I’ve photographed this duo before.  I was stoked when I got a call from Bri saying she wanted […]

Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. Lihue is gorgeous. My clients are always so wonderful to work with. That’s true of my session with the Amos family, too! I met up with them where they were staying at the Kalanipu`u Resort in […]

You don’t have to ask me twice to head to Anini – my happy place – for an photo shoot! That’s where I photographed Dave and Ashley, and it was an absolute dream session in every way.  Ashley made this fantasy date happen as a surprise for her hubby to celebrate their 10 year anniversary […]
