If you want a stress free fun photo shoot with all the best shots choose Cheryl and surf city images to do your photos! We just got our wedding photos back and they are stunning! She makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She genuinely cares about making sure you get all the best shots. Our sunset photos brought tears to our eyes. Thank you Cheryl!!! More...

I took off to Hawaii with my best friend a day after we both graduated from undergrad and postgrad schooling. Graduating or even getting as far as I have has been a miracle.. and my family needed photos as proof and bragging rights to share with the world.Cheryl planned the whole day for us with extra attention to things I wasn't even thinking of. Things like: When it was best to take photos and where to catch the perfect lighting from the sunrise and the sunset. This was my fault, but I had a cracked black pepper stuck between my two front teeth!! She was able to flawlessly edit them out through the photos though (saved.. wouldn't have enjoyed mom n dad sharing THAT with the world)! In two other photos I really loved a fly had landed near my lips too.. oh boy.. but again.. Cheryl worked her magic and it was as if the fly never existed. I was thoroughly happy and having FUN during the photoshoot. I have the photos printed and hanging around the house :). I'd recommend Cheryll and the whole experience she brings with her (she's a fun lady!). I really want to get underwater photos taken by her and plan to in the near future. More...

Cheryl is a true professional, her patience, attention to every detail, and her amazing skill in using any lighting was unprecedented. We had a family session booked with her (including our 1 year old) and she exceeded all of our expectations. It is literally impossible to take a good family shot with toddlers but Cheryl did an outstanding job. Highly recommend, and we would go to her for any occasion.  Last but not least, she was prompt both with her email correspondence as well as producing the final product. More...

Too many great things to say!  Cheryl is professional, punctual and very detail oriented. She scouts out the best place for pictures for each day by weather and beach conditions. We had an amazing time with her. She felt like family to us by the time we finished our photo shoot!!  She's the best!! More...

Cheryl was fantastic to work with for a couple's photoshoot at Kona beach. She went above and beyond our expectations. We had booked for 30 minutes but she was with us over an hour and taking great care and vision in clicking each photograph. She also sent us all the pictures in a very short period of time. Overall, an overwhelmingly positive experience and highly recommended for photoshoots on the Big Island! More...

Working with Cheryl was the best decision we made on our vacation! She took the time to get an idea of what we wanted and then produced my favorite pictures of us to date. We did an underwater shoot and Cheryl thought of everything we'd need to be comfortable. If you're getting pictures done in Hawaii I could not recommend Surf City Images more!! More...

Cheryl did an awesome job of working with me planning a proposal with me to surprise my fiancée at the beach.   She came up with some great ideas, communicated along the way and we worked out everything to a T! When the time came, everything was flawless and she was there to capture the moment beautifully and providing some classy and romantic pictures that we will forever be thankful for.  She is very nice and accommodating for all our needs and definitely knows what she is doing.  We got along so well we did another photo shoot with her later in the week and she captured some more beautiful moments.  Thank you Cheryl for helping us make it a trip of a lifetime to Hawaii!

My daughter and I went to Kona for our birthdays and celebrating the two mile stones. We decided to have our pictures taken while we were there. We were lucky to have found Cheryl the owner/photographer at Surf City Images. Cheryl set up photo shoots at the beach, Kona Coffee fields and the surrounding areas. She coached us where to stand, sit and pose to obtain the best lighting and "our best sides"!  Thank you Cheryl, for capturing our special "birthdays" and making both of us look beautiful. Cannot wait to come back and have you photograph us again. More...

If you find yourself in the beautiful setting of BI - having pictures taken by Cheryl of Surf City Images is a must!!!  All the selfies and nice pictures on my Nikon does not compare to the amazing family photos that Cheryl took of my family and I.  The professionalism and ease starts before you get to the island.  Cheryl and I discussed scheduling a time, outfits, colors and so forth.  We were lucky the weather was cooperating and took our family beach photos within the first 2 days we were there.  When we met up with her, her friend and her had a wonderful surprise set up for us.  We started with a Hawaiian ceremonial attribute which was so touching. She then went along with what we wanted and was completely open to any and all suggestions as well as giving us good ideas as well.  She was amazing with my 5 year old and was so patient during the entire process.  What really set her apart from other photographers, that I have worked with in the past, is this wonderful passion for photography itself and how much she enjoys it.  She was just as invested in the pictures as we were and throughout the shoot was ecstatic with how some of the shots were coming out.  Her enthusiasm was justified by the totally amazing moonlight beach photos (National Geographic quality) of my family.I can't thank Cheryl and her friend enough to making this photoshoot experience not only found but so incredibly rewarding.  MAHALO CHERYL!!!**Cheryl's pricing is a steal....I spent time researching and everyone else quoted me 2-3x her price.
