It is never too late to have a perfect Kauai wedding. Rachel and Corey were married 10 years ago and invited me to capture their beautiful vow renewal at Shipwrecks beach. The couple renewed their vows in a circle of greenery and tropical flowers, by Rachels best friend Ariane. They were joined by friends and […]

When I was young girl growing up in Kansas I used to play office in my Grandma’s family home office. I had my own phone and important paperwork. I loved being a businesswoman, even at the age of 4. I remember a photo that was framed in that family room. It was a photo of […]

We hiked to a clearing on Kapaa and set up blankets and pillows. Bri and T cuddled up on their forrest pallet, reading books, finding shapes in the clouds and giggling. The flower crowns, or haku’s were made for them especially for this sweet portrait session. I love that Bri set this special day up […]

"The quality of the finished product
SURPASSED MY EXPECTATIONS.
Keri was awesome the day of the wedding, she took the initiative and was creative with her approach each time. When I look back through the album, it tells a beautiful story of our wedding."

"The work you did to make sure we got great shots and where we wanted them went far above anything we expected. It was great to have you there and for you to be so enthusiastic, especially since you were our only guest at the wedding."

"Keri was more than just a wedding photographer; she provided personal support on my wedding day. Her relaxed nature and sweet personality calmed me down considerably on that huge day. My husband, who is very shy, and I felt that she was both professional and personal!"
