My whole family was getting together in Hawaii for my mom's 80th birthday and I wanted to capture the memories with a photo session. I found Best Hawaii Photos online and Pasha was quick to respond and very personable and professional. He was attentive to our needs (both my parents have difficulty getting around) and he knew the best spots right near our Hale Koa Hotel for some lush greenery shots and beach shots. It was a wonderful experience and we have many beautiful photos that we will cherish for a lifetime! I highly recommend Pasha! More...

Pasha took some great pictures of our daughter’s Shichigosan (Japanese celebration of children) celebration. He is a talented photographer who is also a wonderful father, so he was able to capture precious moments of our daughter and our family. I couldn’t be happier with all the wonderful pictures he took for us. The celebration was really special for us so it meant a lot to us that Pasha was able to capture all these beautiful memories. Thank you Pash! I highly recommend him. Very dependable and great to work with!!! More...

Pasha was absolutely wonderful and so accommodating for our family photos while we on vacation in Hawaii. I emailed him months prior to set up the session and he was quick in replying and setting up the appointment and working within the location and budget that we desired. I shared with him exactly the photo arrangement that I was looking to achieve and he worked diligently to carryout that vision. Now I have wonderful photos to display in our home of a very memorable trip. Thanks again! More...

I recently visited Hawaii with 4 other fremilies and we had Pasha do our photos (recommendation from another friend). They came out amazing and Pasha is the coolest guy! ! He helped us with different poses, showed us different places to go see close to where we stayed and even gave us little tidbits of the island life.  The turnaround was super fast and his edits, amazing! I've since recommended other friends and will definitely look into photos again our next trip out! Thanks Pasha! More...

Pasha was awesome. I am from Los Angeles and after seeing his wonderful work from our close friends, Pasha was referred to us to capture our family vacation along with a special 10 year wedding anniversary celebration. Pasha was very flexible and was able to use our backyard beach in Kailua to capture the moments. It wasn't an easy task, but Pasha was able to accommodate and capture pictures for a party of 29! He did a fantastic job. And since we were still in the middle of our vacation, he was very hardworking in delivering us an initial set of online pictures for us to enjoy during our trip. Communication was excellent and he made the entire process from shooting, choosing pictures, and delivery a breeze! I highly recommend Pasha for your photo shoot needs and look forward to working with him again on our future trip to the islands. Pasha, Mahalo! More...

Pasha have done a splendid job for our anniversary wedding. Compared to many other professional photographers he charges a much lower price, but delivers a much higher quality (and quantity). Pasha was very artful in choosing proper shots and accommodating our preferences at the same time. Throughout the photo shoot he remained focused on capturing the best shots. He often checked the photos on the spot and modified our pose, lighting, and angles as needed. While the service fees were already reasonable, he made extra efforts and spent extra time to take more pictures with a sunset background.Pasha is courteous, professional and yet very friendly. Completely focused on satisfying his customers, it is very clear that he is deeply passionate about his job. My wife and I are very happy and thankful for his service and, without any hesitation, recommend him for capturing important moments of your life. More...

My wife and I wanted to have our wedding renewal photos done in Oahu, Hawaii during our vacation. This was the first time us visiting Hawaii, so we had to arrange things via phone. After extensive online search for photographers and locations, we found Best Hawaii Photos, LLC, DBA company site (we worked with Pasha). Pasha explained the whole process (different packages...etc) on the phone and recommended locations, and time of day. He was so patient and awesome, he answered all of our questions and helped us in providing cake table and other tools at no cost. Pasha suggestions about places where we can do the photo-shot were so great and beautiful. We ended up with Beautiful photos, he is very talented and he made our renewal photos more than amazing! Thank you Pasha for everything and thank you for the wonderful photos! We are very happy. More...

Pasha was awesome. I am from Canada and was going to propose to my girlfriend. I wanted a photographer to capture this moment. I came across Pasha and his reviews and decided to email him. Pasha was so helpful in suggesting ideas and where to pop the question. I wanted to get rose petals and leis to make the moment special and Pasha offered to pick them up for me and set up the location at magic island for the special moment. He went above and beyond through the whole experience and was so easy to get in contact with email and text. The photos turned out great and were available to us the very next day!! I highly recommend Pasha to anybody in need of engagement or wedding shots!! - PJ More...

P - Photography is in his bloodA - Attention to detail S - Superb talentH - HardworkingA - All you need for your event!The event is my daughter's 18th birthday (Filipino Debut) and the setting is at Duke's Waikiki, beach front, sunset till 10:30 pm.  Our original photographer cancelled on us 10 days prior to the event so we have to scramble for a replacement.  We sent out inquiries here at Yelp and Craigslist and only 3 replied back, 2 of them quote us through the roof.  Pasha is the cheapest quote and we were a little skeptical because he's not even half the price of the quotes we were getting.  I said F it we'll take him we got not much choice this time.  Pasha had a wedding to cover that day but he's available at night so he accommodated us.  I want to say that he really surprised me because this is the third wedding-like party that we have celebrated in the family and we were impressed how professional and hardworking Pasha is considering the amount that he charge his customers.  We had photographers in the previous events we had that up-charged us, offered us expensive prints that you can get somewhere at half the price and gouge us for the release of digital copies (especially the RAW ones).  Pasha never did this to us.  Not only that, he uses every minute of his time and even encouraging people just to capture great photos.  I asked him a couple of times just to chill out and rest for a bit but he said he's fine and just continued working.  A couple of days after the event we got the digital copies of the initial photos and he kept on updating the link until he finishes.  He did everything in less than a week!Stop looking and hire him now before he changes his mind and start charging like the rest LOL.  For so many years my hobby was photography so when I say he's got the eye and the attention to detail you can count on it.

Pasha did an amazing job shooting our son's first birthday party.   Often times, you miss out on all the wonderful memories because you are so busy running around and Pasha was able to capture not only posed pictures of all our guests but awesome candids.  Our son, who is currently in heavy stranger-danger mode, even allowed Pasha to get some great photos of him.   At the end of the night, I was completely surprised when my boyfriend proposed to me and am so happy to have pictures of that moment that we will treasure forever.  Our pictures were not only great but delivered to us digitally so quickly.  I am so happy with the outcome and will definitely call Pasha in the future.

We were visiting Hawaii with our 5 kids and emailed Pasha about taking family photos.  He  emailed me right back to set up the time and worked around everything we wanted.  He took the best family pictures we have ever had and we wish we could fly back to Hawaii every time we want pictures taken!  My teenagers all even enjoyed the experience.  I feel so lucky that we found Pasha!

Pasha!!! He was absolutely amazing, super professional, down to earth and very prompt. We had our wedding yesterday and he had sent me the link the very next day for my husband & I to view and download all our photos which was 300+ photos. He's even edited them and everything. He has a great eye for shots and just so great to work with. Definitely Pasha is staying in my contacts because we will be using his services in our near future. Thank you PASHA!!! More...

Pasha was awesome! I am so happy I decided to go with him.  He came for my son's 1st birthday party.  I wasn't going to book a photographer because I only saw very expensive ones and thought it would be way too much.  I checked out craigslist and came across an ad that Pasha had posted. I was a little skeptical because of all the scams on Craigslist but I decided to try it out and I'm glad I did.  Pasha was so professional, friendly, patient and came to do his job.  Soon as he arrived he started taking photos on the spot.  He was everywhere taking photos, i was so happy!  When he was done he took a few more photos of my family and I because we barely got any because of how busy the party was.  He was so nice to stick around and take some of us before he left.  We were so appreciative and he sent me the link to all my photos the very next day.  I loved all of them and can't wiat to share it with our guests.  Thank you Pasha for helping us celebrate our son's 1st bday!! If you need a photographer, I highly recommend Pasha...he is awesome!! More...

He shared over 300 photos with me! I am very happy with his service. I hope to use him in the future. Thanks Pasha!!! More...

First and foremost, the event was for a 1st Birthday party and we we're scrambling to call in vendors for the event. We tried every other vendor but nonr could match our photographer. Pasha was really nice, appreciative, flexible and he took his time to take pictures. We werent there when he arrived at the event but we heard from my brother that as soon as he checked in, he started taking pictures.He didnt ask for us at all. He went straight to work taking pictures of our guests. When we arrived with our son we saw him taking pictures of almost everyone and when he saw us, thats when we became his main audience. Pasha did an awesome job with the birthday party because our guests, friends and family were asking about him. How he was there yet he wasnt there. The way he took pictures was in a form where he didnt bother anyone nor was he in the way. He took great pride in his work by taking multiple shots with requests from our guests all the way down to individual shots inside and outside the banquet facility. We really appreciate his work and the way he handled himself throughout the event go so far as to stay until it was finished. When we recieved the pictures he took, we were astonished as to how many shots he took. We expected to get maybe around 200 shots but it was 5x more! All really really awesome shots!!! Again Pasha did a great job and we hope to have him again as our event photographer. Thank you so much!!! More...
