Kristen Hook Photography Reviews

Kristen Hook Photography

I don't get it. She's super friendly, great with kids, takes excellent photos, and is an utmost professional. Wow. Superb! We had 15 family members out in Hawai'i and wanted family photos--a bunch of them. You know, the whole group, smaller family units, just the grandkids, just the granddaughters, etc. She was very helpful in knowing the local terrain, timing of the sun and locations. She made everyone feel at ease (which made for some great fun shots--included). To top it all off, my brother is a professional photographer, and he gave an enthusiastic thumbs up for her work as well, both the final pictures and during the shoot. In short, she's fantastic and you should book her now. You won't regret it.

Our family celebrated my husband's 70th birthday in Kailua this spring. We arranged for Kristen to do a photo shoot on the beach to capture the cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Kristen made this experience so fun and totally painless, to the surprise of several! She was great, professional and captured amazing photos - I was so pleased. I would recommend her for any occasion!

I honestly couldn't say enough great things about Kristen! We were getting married and had never been to Hawaii, and Kristen was so helpful with recommendations and planning for our engagement and wedding photos. She helped with suggestions for locations with pictures and links, what time of day, recommendations for where I could get flowers, and even drove to the other side of the island to accommodate a sunrise engagement session with the wedding back on the other side of the island later that afternoon. She made us feel very comfortable during each session considering how nervous we were and the pictures are phenomenal! I now follow her work and can't wait to go back for family photos on the island.

Kristen is amazing! We were only in the area for a few days but she willing to go out of her way to schedule a last-minute engagement shoot for us. Her photos all came out beautifully, and she did a great job of capturing our personality! She also was very good at quickly getting us comfortable with the whole process, and there was a good mix of candids and posed photos. I highly recommend her! Thank you so much, Kristen!

Kristen made a family-reunion photograph session over Christmas vacation seem like a breeze. She is easy-going and so fun to work with. She offered great tips for colors to wear (and not wear). She suggested appropriate props to help with levels. The day before our session, when we started to second-guess our chosen beach location, she quickly identified a new location that was beautiful. The weather wasn't great, but Kristen captured the 15 of us in great light. She made it fun, and I think we have some terrific family photos. I would use her services again.

I have an engagement photo session with Kristen in Oahu during raining season(1 week before Christmas). Thanks a lot, I hire Kristen, She save my engagement photo from bad weather! She is a warm heart and talented person. She knows very well about the weather, all the beaches, and traffic condition. We first have some photo at the Waimanalo beach before the rain is too heavy. Then Kristen guides us to other beautiful locations nearby before the clouds and rain reach there. Despite the bad weather, I receive 500+ beautiful photo in a THREE HOURS photo session! The quality of the photo is high. If you are not very familiar with Hawaii, and your time slots for the photo shooting is quite limited. Kristen is a very helpful and talented photographer.

We hired Kristen to do family photos while we were on vacation in Hawaii. We were quite a large group with a few babies and a few school aged kids. She did such a great job and was so easy to work with! She sent us all the photos, including the bloopers and we loved them! Everyone was really happy with how they all turned out. I would definitely recommend Kristen!

What a pleasure it was to work with Kristen during our time in Hawaii. My fiancé and I got engaged in Oahu and were able to book a session with Kristen a few days later. The session was a blast and Kristen's flexibility and easy going personality allowed us to be who we are - which made for amazing pictures! Within a few weeks, Kristen had all of our digitals edited and sent back to us. We are thrilled that we chose Kristen to capture our special moment. Thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!

I don't normally provide reviews but Kristen took such amazing photos of my family I feel that I have to share for those families looking to have pictures taken! My family and I were traveling to Oahu for vacation and I wanted to get updated pictures done. With no referrals my only option was to google. Kristen came up on my search and I saw she had great reviews so I contacted her. Leading up to our trip she always responded to my many questions in a timely manner. On the day of the pictures she didn't disappoint. I never once felt rushed or stressed and she made us all, especially my young boys, feel comfortable, which made for many beautiful pictures! I am over-the-moon happy the results. When we return to the island I will definitely be contacting Kristen to take our pictures again!

We did a postwedding / trash the dress shooting during our honeymoon in Hawaii. She was opened to our ideas and brought really nice one too. Photos came out perfect and very quickly. We could not ask for more. I discovered Kristen on facebook and I really recommand her. You won't be disapointed.

I'm so glad I came across her page and decided to book an engagement session while my fiance and I were in Oahu for a vacation. Kristen was very prompt and professional and made the whole process easy and fun! Our pictures turned out amazing and exceeded my expectations!!

I don't write reviews often. I am very particular, and will not take the time to write something unless I am absolutely moved by a product or service. Kristin is it. Not only was she professional, friendly and on time... she made my husband-to-be and me extremely comfortable throughout the entire event. Her eye for the 'perfect shot' is amazing, and she was able to capture those 'Harry Benson' moments, which showed the essence of our personalities. Kristin made our wedding day most memorable, and beautiful. I would absolutely use her again, and highly recommend her for your upcoming event.

Kristen helped us pick locations and times of day specific to the overall feeling of photos that we were trying to achieve. She was creative and she made the shoot fun! We could not be any happier with the finished photos and the overall experience.

Kristen Hook is pure talent at its best! She photographed our family after our daughter was born at 5-weeks-old, and again when she was nearly two! We are a family of four and my six-year-old son is a ball of energy. Kristen demonstrated the utmost patience and expertise as she chose the perfect location, the perfect shots, and captured the sweetest moments. She provided a link to all 400+ photos, and I truly loved them all! We will continue to use her services for years to come.

Kristen Hook is an amazing, talented photographer! We feel so honored to have worked with her. She was professional, yet relaxed, and genuine. Our wedding photos are gorgeous! She captured all of it, including the special quiet moments to the "I do's" and everything in between. Every picture she took was perfect - the color, clarity, angle, and light. She has an artist's eye and it's reflected in our wedding photos. Thank you so much for making these memories last a lifetime!

We are from Germany. We have booked a blessing package for our son on Oahu - including a photographer. To our luck we had Kristen Hook. She was very open, friendly and heartily. It was very nice to work with her. She took the mood well during the blessing without "disturbing" the ceremony. We were much more surprised when we saw the pictures. These have become very beautiful, impressive colors and "light games" and we are very happy to have this great memory. We really hope we can do a shoot with her again.

Kristen was perfect for our large and chaotic family. She took advantage of photo opportunities as they came up for family groups, was very patient, and sent us back amazing photos. I was really impressed that as we neared the end of our time, she was more than willing to go to yet one more setting to catch some posed and candid shots, she was very generous with her time. She did a great job with the kids, and she did a great job with both posed and candid pictures. We got everything we wanted from our session with her. We got back over 200 pictures that were beautiful and fun, close ups and far aways, lots to go through and save. Thanks so much Kristen!!

Kristen was everything I could have dreamed of in a photographer for my wedding. She was very calm and collected, which made me (as a bride) so much more comfortable. Her photos were absolutely stunning, more than I could have imagined. I researched photographers for 3 weeks before deciding, and I know 100% that I made the right choice. She was able to get lots of glamour shots, and was willing to partake in my silliness with funny photos I wanted. She truly listened to our wishes, and gave amazing advice on how to get the best shots. Would recommend 10/10 times.

Kristen is AMAZING! Every photo is better than the next! Extremely professional, organized and so creative. She has fantastic ideas and makes you feel completely comfortable. We live in St. Louis, Missouri and decided to marry in Hawaii. I planned everything via email with Kristen and she has just been a dream to work with. My husband and I could not be more pleased with the outcome! We will ask Kristen to do our anniversary photos when we go back. LOVE HER!

Jeff and I had an amazing time shooting maternity photos with Kristin on Kailua Beach and in our backyard. She is a genius with lighting techniques, different posses and playing with different background and foregrounds. She gave us so many incredible photos that we have shared with friends and family and feel grateful that she perfectly captured this amazing time in our lives. Thank you Kristin. Can't wait to work with you again in December and after the baby arrives!

Kristen is a darling and an absolute joy to be around! She's VERY adept at her work and super flexible. She can adapt to all sorts of weather conditions, is unfaltering in her passion and commitment to her work even if she is faced with adventurous terrain and locations. Lastly, she did not fail to capture the magic of our wedding day and for that we be forever grateful! :') Aloha from Marc & Ishika

Kristen did the photos for my husband's 80th surprise birthday party. We flew his entire family out to hawaii from all over the country and it was no small feat to make all of the arrangements for the shoot with all of us. There was a fair amount of anxiety and craziness involved with everything going on and Kristen handled all of it with perfection; she brought such professionalism, calm and kindness to the process that we all felt so comfortable in no time. The photos that she took brought us to tears, laughter and everything in between. In addition, she did an individual family photo shoot that was a special gift that really touched our heart. We can't thank you enough Kristen for the gift of memories you gave us!!!!

Kristen was a super star! We had a wedding on an island off of Oahu, and she kayaked out there with all of her camera equipment. She got excellent photos of the whole ceremony and of all of my family and friends. We had such a great time and she was amazing to work with and the photos turned out fantastic.

Kristen did a great job helping me surprise my now fiancee on the beach at sunrise. It was a great photo shoot and the photos turned out awesome. I enjoyed that she let us keep all the pictures she took rather than picking and choosing which to give us. You won't be disappointed!

Kristen was great from beginning to end! She was open to our crazy idea of travelling around the island to take photos in multiple locations (jungle, ocean, mountain). Our Wedding photos came out awesome and she captured so many cool angles. She is easy going and open to all kinds of visions and she captured the most important day of our lives! I can't wait to work with her again.

Kristen was the photographer for our recent wedding. We heard about her from good family friends and since we aren't located in Hawaii we went based on the recommendation. We couldn't have been more pleased. Kristen was amazing! She was early and even captured shots I didn't think she would have time to do. She was flexible and always willing to try what I was suggesting. She made all our friends and family feel comfortable. In the end we have the best photos and it is amazing to go back and look at them and relive that day. Thank you Kristen for everything!

I love Kristen Hook's work. I have been using her for the last 7 years to photograph my studio and instructors. She is very professional and knows how to get a great photo. She recently took photos of my Grandson and I for Pilates Style Magazine article they did on us. And she also did my daughters wedding pictures . She is awesome and glad I can call her and know the pictures will be awesome as well...

Kristen is a pleasure to work with, super easy going, and very helpful in helping to plan a shoot. Our first time working with Kristen was for our wedding 4years ago. We wanted a simple ceremony on the beach and she was full of ideas as to where, when, etc. for the best photos. I couldn't be happier with or location and how our pictures turned out! Since then she has taken the most adorable pictures of our two boys. We absolutely recommend Kristen for anyone who is looking for a photographer for any occasion!

We were very pleased with Kristen. We had family photos taken on Waikiki beach, and she did a great job. She met us on time, and she chose scenery for us that turned out very nice. She was also very personable and a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her.

We have used Kristen twice now, once to photograph our wedding and once for family photos. She is super flexible & easy to work with. Her work is outstanding and she is very professional and experienced. The turn around time to receive our pictures back was quick and the website she uses makes it super easy to pick and choose the pictures we wanted.I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer and I am planning to use her again in the future!

Kristen was the photographer for my wedding in July. She did an amazing job with the photos. We had a large amount of people we wanted photos with and she was patient with us as we figured out all the different combinations of family pictures. Kristen was punctual and really personable. I felt like she was a more of a friend taking pictures than just some random stranger. She had creative ideas for poses and used a couple different cameras to get the best shots. The pictures were ready within 2 weeks of the wedding date. We had the option to download them all ourselves, order a cd, and we could order them right from her website if we wanted. I would definitely recommend Kristen Hook for wedding photography. Thank you!

It was such a pleasure to work with Kristen! She has a way of making everyone feel relaxed, and has a great intuitive sense on the essence or energy of the wedding and the people involved. Although we just met on my wedding day, she was able to capture, not only the essence of our personalities in the pictures, but also of the loving energy that was present that day. She also has a way of bringing out the fun to catch great spontaneous shots! Kristen is talented and has a gifted eye for beauty deeper than just the surface. I would definitely recommend her services as a wedding photographer; and I would definitely use her services again for my other events in the future.

I absolutely loved taking pictures with Kristen Hook. She did an amazing job at staying in contact with me in the beginning. She did an amazing job at shooting the photography. My Fiancé and I both love the pictures. She was able to go with the flow and take whatever pictures we wanted. At the same time was able to give us ideas about what pictures look good. I would highly recommended Kristen Hook to anyone who was looking to take pictures in Hawaii.

We can't say enough about Kristen! She was amazing! She was exactly what my daughter and her fiance were looking for from a wedding photographer - professional, unobtrusive, relaxed, very friendly and extremely talented. The photographs were absolutely stunning - very natural and wonderfully evocative of the mood of my daughter's and new son-in-law's wedding day. These photos will be treasured by our family forever! Thank you, Kristen, for capturing every precious moment of the day!
