Kristen Hook Photography

After honing my skills in photography in the corporate world for a couple of years, I couldn’t resist the beckoning call of home. I moved back to my hometown of Kailua, Hawaii to open my own business.

Kristen Hook Photography was created in November of 2010. From the beginning, my business specialized in wedding photography, engagement photography, and family photography with a creative flair.

While weddings have become the bulk of my business, I also shoot commercial photography, lifestyle photography, product photography, as well as stock photography.

That Special Something

I love to capture the unlimited beauty in and around the Hawaiian Islands. Growing up on Oahu gives me an intimate knowledge of the island that I am happy to share with my clients to help them get the best pictures imaginable.

Clients tell me my photography has a fresh uniqueness and a keen sense of style. It’s my hope that my love for photography and sense of humor and fun shine through every image.

When I’m not behind a camera, you can find my enjoying the beauty that I spend so much time photographing. I enjoy water surfing, paddling, bike riding, running with my black lab Kona, or hanging out with friends and family on the beach.


“It's been 2 years since we had our photos taken by Kristen and I'm still in love with the photos! She did an AMAZING job. She was so nice. It was great! I have our photos all over the house and I always remember that day and it makes me smile, thanks to Kristen!”

“Kristen was absolutely amazing! Some of the pictures came back looking fake because they were so absolutely perfect… they looked as if they came straight out of a magazine! When I got my pictures back it was like she had read my mind! All the special shots that I wanted she had captured, and much much more! If you want an awesome photographer, Kristen is your girl!”
