Want to Take Your Engagement Photos in Hawaii?


Engagement photography is a special way to capture the unspoken magic that defines you as a couple. Whether you live in Hawaii or are planning a vacation or destination wedding, I’d love to help you commemorate your engagement with photos you will cherish for a lifetime.

My goal is to help you relax and have fun with the process, so your engagement photos reflect a natural state of joy and bliss. I’m a professional engagement and wedding photographer and I’ve shot hundreds of happy couples. I will work with you to capture your unique style, personality, and story.

As a native Hawaiian, I know the best locations near Kailua and around Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, and throughout the state. I can help you find the perfect spot for your engagement photo session.

You deserve perfect engagement photos you can cherish forever. I can help.

My Approach to Engagement Photography

“I prefer to take a photojournalistic approach with photography, which allows me to capture pure love and emotion through the camera’s lens. When it comes to engagement photography, it’s all about celebrating the love and magic of a couple before their big day.

Hawaii is simply the most amazing place for photography in the world. There are so many options to choose from to get mind blowing backdrops for fantastic engagement photos.”

-- Kristen Hook

Frequently Asked Questions


“How many pictures do I get?”

All the pictures! You’ll get every photo I shoot during your session, that way you can choose the ones you love the most. If you need help narrowing things down, I’m happy to tell you which ones I think are best, too!

“When’s the best time to take engagement photos in Hawaii?”

There’s really no bad time to visit Hawaii. We have a bit of a rainy season in Oahu that lasts from November through March, but the rain here mostly comes in intense spurts rather than all-day downpours. I can help you choose photo locations you’ll love, as well as backup locations in case of bad weather.

“I don’t know anything about photography and how to pose. Can you help?”

No problem! I’ll help take the stress out of your photo session. I love helping couples feel comfortable and at ease, so you get natural looking photos you will cherish. I take plenty of candid photographs to capture your relaxed moments, while I also assist you with poses that capture your unique style and personalities.

“I’m not from Hawaii, can you help me pick a place to take pictures?”

Absolutely! I grew up in Hawaii, and I love sharing the perfect places to take engagement photos. As a native, I’ll take you to spectacular locations that you won’t find in a guide book, so your photos will be extra special.

“Do you do offer wedding photography services too?”

You bet! I love taking photos of couples for their engagements, and then continuing to capture their love at their wedding too. An engagement photo session is a great opportunity for us to get to know each other, so when your wedding day comes, we’re already well acquainted!
