Amber chose the perfect time and place for my sunset time photos! She is really good at capturing great moments. She took a lot of photos for me and suggested many varieties of different posture & background options! I love all of the photos she took for me! I will definitely recommend Amber to be your personal photographer!
Anyone who has been married will tell you that the wedding day is stressful, for a number of reasons. Fortunately, Michael was a breath of fresh air and a calming influence as his style of photography is professional as well as fluid. My wife and I are goofy, love to laugh, and we wanted that reflected in our photos. We also wanted the "serious" shots as well. Michael was able to accommodate all of our wishes and did so with ease. Our final portfolio is incredible! It encompasses the entire event from getting ready to the final songs on the dance floor. Looking through our photos I am able to truly relive my wedding and the loving moments shared with my wife and our family and friends. 5 stars across the board, Michael and Vivir are the way to go.
Melissa is incredibly skillful in everything she does. She was so patient with my son and his friend as they were getting pictures and goofing off. She really captured the most amazing shots and delivered them in a way that is timeless. I am so thrilled with everything she sent us. Her turn around time is the best I've ever experienced. I will definitely be using her as much as possible for my newest addition in July. Thank you so much Melissa!
Although she won’t be available for the date I need, she was so helpful in finding me other options locally! This is always something I respect in service based businesses, as they are obviously more concerned with client experience than being on “the top”. Beating competition the kind way makes her SUCH a great photographer to find! Not to mention her photos online are gorgeous!
Ashley was amazing to work with. She responds promptly to any questions. This was the first time our family had ever had professional photos done and Ashley made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Ashley was able to get both of our boys to cooperate and smile at the same time! A HUGE thank you to Ashley for capturing our family's special moments at the beach. We will cherish these photos for years to come! Highly recommend having her help capture your special moments.
Working with the team at Hawaiian Creative Weddings was great. We planned our wedding in just 6 weeks and I'm so grateful they were available! There was initially a slight miscommunication about the exact location the day of and I was a bit worried on the phone, but after meeting them where we were set up they were extremely kind, professional, and made our special day beyond perfect. We got the Hawaiian package with music and photos. We loved the conch blowing, lei exchange, Rev. David gave us a touching ceremony, and the music was that extra beautiful cherry on top and it made our attendees cry! The photos were beautiful and I received them just a few days after. I would 100% recommend them and loved everything about our wedding day. You won't be disappointed! :)Thanks again!
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.
Bodhi did the photography for our commitment ceremony in February, and it was a pleasure to work with him. All of our pictures came out beautifully, and the post work he did is perfect- not to mention how quickly we received our pictures! Bodhi is incredibly flexible, and was so easy going in dealing with the weather (frequent rain showers) and our requests, numerous as they were. He has great vision and was able to tell us what would and wouldn't work, and got some amazing shots of us. I would recommend him for anything. We can't thank you enough, Bodhi- you are a phenomenal photographer and we are so thankful for your time with us.
Will has been absolutely fantabulous! From our initial contact on Yelp, through the photography and delivery of the pictures and video, Will exceeded my very high expectation. He was professional, responsive, punctual, and made us feel very comfortable. I highly recommend Will to capture your treasured memories.
Michelle Scotti was great to work with, very happy and easy-going with our 9-month-old daughter. We did a family shoot on the beach, and the biggest issue we had is that there was no way to only pick out 10 photos! There were so many great ones to choose from that we had to buy the whole suite. I would definitely recommend her!
