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 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."

alyssa & troy

"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."

genni & chris

"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!"
