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.

At-Home Date Night Ideas

Kauai Couples Photography, Kauai Photographer Keri Cooper

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.

4 Things to Consider Before Your Hawaii Beach Wedding

"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!"
