My Approach to Wedding Photography
“Your dream destination wedding in Hawaii shouldn’t be stressful-- it should be the perfect day you’ve always wanted, a day to share and celebrate your love! As a local, I’ll help you however I can, beyond simply taking photos. I can offer my expert advice for venues, locations, places to stay, and much more.
As a wedding photographer I take a photojournalistic approach, capturing love and emotions through my camera’s lens. When it comes to wedding photography, I’m most inspired when I have free creative control. Capturing the moment of love is so magical and it allows you to think out of the box.
Hawaii is simply the most spectacular place for photography I’ve ever seen. The variety of settings and the area’s natural beauty will just blow your mind.”

Frequently Asked Questions
“How many pictures do you take and how many will you send to me?”
During the course of a full day of photographing your destination wedding, I’ll take hundreds of pictures (or even more). However, unlike other wedding photographers, I’ll send you every image I take! You can choose your favorites and have them printed or share them online-- it’s up to you!
Of course, if you’d like my help, I’m happy to help you select the images I think look the best.
“When’s the best time to get married in Hawaii?”
There’s really no bad time to hold a destination wedding in Hawaii. Here in Oahu, there’s a bit of a rainy season from November until March. However our rain showers are brief but intense! There’s hardly ever a truly “rainy day” in Hawaii. When we plan your photo shoots, we’ll choose a few backup locations in case of rainy weather.
“I don’t know anything about photography and how to pose. Can you help?”
I love helping brides, grooms, and their families and wedding guests feel at ease and comfortable. In addition to taking plenty of candid photographs, I’ll take posed and unposed portraits and will help everyone look their very best.
“This is my first time visiting Hawaii. Can you give me any tips on how to plan my destination wedding or where the best spots are to take pictures?”
Yes! I grew up in Hawaii and I know the best places to take wedding and engagement pictures, including some spectacular locations that you won’t find in a tourist book. Just ask!
“Do you do offer any non-traditional wedding photography services?”
Of course! I love trash the dress sessions and non-traditional weddings. I’ve even photographed weddings in the ocean and one where all of the guests swam and kayaked to a tiny island!
