Working as a wedding photographer in Hawaii is amazing. The scenery is truly breath-taking, and I feel honored to be in the presence of Love with my camera. Primarily I do wedding photography on Kauai and Maui, but since the flights between islands are short and inexpensive, I can photograph your destination wedding on Oahu, the Big Island, or wherever you're planning to exchange vows, kisses, and rings. At your wedding, I can take pictures in either a "photo-journalistic" style while unobtrusively capturing candid expressions, or I can easily and effectively give direction to help pose the bride, groom, and other important guests. Usually I do some of both. I'll definitely be available for your input, ideas, and questions long before the ceremony. (Even for non-photography related stuff -- if I can recommend you a minister, restaurant, hairdresser, or any local info to make your special day more smooth and exceptional, I'm happy to do so). I take great care of the people who hire me. I realize this is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and I arrive prepared to do the best possible job for you. I scout wedding locations in advance for lighting and shot ideas. I carry four different types of lenses in my camera bag (over $12,000 worth of equipment) to give you the widest range of photographic possibilities. After the wedding, I still have a lot more work to do to make your images look their absolute best. I freely include any necessary post-editing on the pictures, such as basic color adjustments, retouching, cropping, and sharpening (this process typically takes about a week as I carefully examine the hundreds of pictures I've taken), and then I will give you a CD with all the high-resolution images on it. I also can post your pictures in an online gallery so you may easily view and share them with friends and family. For your peace of mind, I should also mention that I carry a million dollar liability insurance policy (which some venues and hotels require for wedding photographers), and I have my D.L.N.R. permit for legally photographing beach weddings in Hawaii. (For all other wedding locations, I'm happy to negotiate traveling worldwide).|
Private photo-shoots with couples can also be arranged before or after the big day. This is a great way to celebrate, relax, and create fantastic pictures without the flood of emotions that occur during the wedding. In Hawaii, we can have a fun, photographic adventure on a beautiful, private beach, by a secluded waterfall, amidst the reflections of lava-rock tidepools, surrounded by fragrant flowers in a tropical garden, or any location you like that will allow us to take inspiring pictures.
