Amazing Experience! Kyler had to deal with two very cranky 5 year old, and he did it like a Pro! Thank you

Kyler of Kai Photos worked with us through phone and email consultation to help us select the service that would best suit our family. On the day of the wedding, Kyler arrived on time. He was pleasant and professional, and created beautiful images of a wonderful day. He sent an email with a link to view the photographs very soon after we returned home. We are very pleased with the quality of the photographs and the variety of images he captured.We highly recommend Kai Photo as a company to trust with special moments of your life. More...

Kyler was our photographer for our July 2018 wedding, and we could not have been more pleased! He was very professional and friendly throughout the entire process, from the planning stages before the wedding, to the actual day, and afterwards as we chose our wedding album photos. I was nervous about planning our wedding from afar as we live in Australia, but Kyler was very receptive and quick to return my emails. We even had a facetime meeting, which gave me a good feel of what it would be like to work with Kyler. We worked together on making a timeline for the day and everything went smoothly. The photos Kyler took were fantastic, and we had many compliments from friends and family about them! Thank you, Kyler, for being part of our big day and helping capture special memories that we will have forever. More...

Kyler was extremely easy to work with from the start. He was quick to respond to emails and questions that we had (which was reassuring from so many miles away!!!), and the beach location he suggested for our family of 9 was beautiful. Our group doesn't *love* having our photos taken, and he made the process easy and painless. And most importantly, the photos turned out beautifully!!!!! We are thrilled with them. Thank you!!!!!

We had the good fortune to find Kai-Photo while planning a trip to Hawaii. From the first contact there's literally nothing I can think of that would have improved the experience. I'm sure we've all had the experience of filling out an online form and then getting a response back days later from someone who clearly skipped most of what we entered.. Not here -- Kyler responded to our initial web inquiry quickly and with all the right details. That initial reply included a link to a quote with exactly what we wanted including a specific time and location. What could have taken a half dozen back and forth emails was instead accomplished with one very efficient interaction.Exactly as he promised, we received a confirmation a couple of days beforehand with day-of contact information and an invoice for the balance due. On the day of we used Kyler's excellent directions to find the location with no problems and we found ourselves well-prepared based again on his detailed instructions. The location itself was the most beautiful stretch of beach we'd seen on Oahu but secluded enough that we pretty much had it to ourselves for pictures.Of course the most important thing is the photos themselves and Kyler was kind enough to share them regularly with us on the large bright beautiful display on the back of his camera so we could give any feedback and make sure we liked what he was shooting (we did!). Since we'd of course be back home before everything was wrapped up and delivered and therefore there are no "re-do's", this little touch was very reassuring. I've been an avid photographer for 30 years and I was still blown away by the quality and colors in what he was capturing. Really beautiful!I passed along to Kyler afterwards that my kids shared with me what I consider the holy grail of teen/pre-teen compliments -- that it wasn't nearly as boring as they expected it to be. That too is a reflection of Kyler's attitude and professionalism. He did things like make time for the kids to beach-comb while he took some grownup pictures and then offered them some opportunities to pick their own poses including goofy phases, sword battles and jumping in the air.If Kyler called me desperate for feedback on how he could have made the experience better for us I'd literally have nothing to offer. I can't say enough good things about our decision to use Kai-Photo. More...

Very creative photographer. The quality of his photos are stunning (even under low lighting) and very detail oriented. The poses he suggested were nice and "post-worthy". He's very easy to work with, takes care of everything (very instructive), and very accommodating. There was never any moments of frustration, only fun and laughter. Thank you for documenting our important day. We would definitely come back for future photo engagements. More...

We met Kyler a few years ago when we hired Kai Photo for our wedding in 2015. We loved his work and were very pleased with the photos that came out. Fast forward 3 years later, we decided to do a family photoshoot/maternity mini session with him, before the arrival of baby #2. We would’ve asked him to do our maternity photos for baby #1 in 2016, but we ended up going with a photographer on Kauai while we were on our babymoon there. Kyler is very easygoing and gave us his honest recommendations on what he thought would be best for our photoshoot. He recommended several spots and went with a beautiful location on the east side of the island. He had suggestions on different poses for us that captured different parts of the landscape, which I really liked. He was also very good with our super active almost 2 year old boy, who was uncooperative for most of the session. (Kyler has two little daughters himself so he knows how it is to work with the kiddos/toddlers). It is usually a struggle for us to even get a smile out of our son for photos, and I’m surprised Kyler was able to capture several shots of him smiling for the camera. He also was very patient with our son and receptive to his needs, such as giving him time to explore his surroundings or suggesting he take a snack break, etc. Lastly, I like that Kyler is attentive to details so if my hair wasn’t in the right spot or the flower in my hair wasn’t showing, he would have me fix/adjust it. We are soooo happy with the photos that came out for this photoshoot and will definitely use Kai Photo again in the future! More...

Awesome experience taking family portraits during our week long vacation to Hawaii! Being a tourist and not knowing the area, just loved how Kyler was so thoughtful in recommending to us the perfect backdrop that was also very family friendly for my three young kids. And our pictures turned out great - the touch up, the lighting - were all fantastic. More...

Absolutely Amazing !! For a destination wedding than is a less then month , I came across Kia photo via multiple searching from many search engines . Kyler was the first person to respond within an hour and not mention how detailed and accommodating he was to our goal and budget. He truly takes the time and answers all your questions in a very polite and sophisticated manner. He delivers what he promises and more ! If ever had the option to come back to Hawaii we definitely will take him up on more sessions. Thank you for all your hard work!! More...

Six years later, these guys were able to provide me with a download link to the GORGEOUS wedding photos they took for me. Six years later, the photos are still stunning. The Kai team managed to capture all of the amazing moments! Every single picture is perfection. No joke. Plus they got the coolest pics of the fireworks display at the Hilton while my new husband and I looked on. Truly incredible! I wish I could have Kai photo take all my family's pictures! More...
