it's time to color

outside the lines...

If you've made it this far in my website, I'll bet you're no boring couple. You don't sweat the small stuff and live life to the fullest. You seek adventure. You don't care if your clothes get a little dirty, if your face gets a little sweaty, and your hair is flying crazy in the wind.

You love adventures and awe-inspiring views; but you also love tender, sweet moments shared between you and your partner. You'd could wake up for a 6-mile sunrise hike or be just as happy sleeping in because you binge watched Netflix all night. Your favorite moments are the ones shared together.

As your Oahu couples photographer, I'm here to capture those moments. Big and small. Epic and understated. Your love is worth documenting and celebrating.

professional editing.

Let me guess, you think you're awkward in front of the camera. Trust me, 99.9% of people think they are too. Until they see their photos and they look like models, just sayinggg.

I know how to pose and prompt you without sacrificing story. There will be times I will pose you to get your good side and capture you in the most flattering light; there will be times I will just let you be and enjoy the moment. I also love incorporating movement in my sessions so we will run, play, and laugh. A lot.

Even if you live on Oahu, you might not know where the best spots are for your Oahu photography session. Not to worry...I do! Based what we discuss and what you write in your discovery questionnaire, I'll make some recommendations for locations. Keep in mind, your outfit determines the mood of your photos more than the location does! So in addition to location scouting, I provide a detailed client guide which goes over all your styling questions!

Editing is where the magic happens and I give each and every one of your photos the attention it deserves! I never withhold images, you get all the beauties that meet my artistic vision. I also store all galleries online for viewing and downloading so you know your memories are safe 🙂

discovery Questionnaire

As soon as you book, my first priority is to get to know you a little better! Cameras are inherently intimidating, and the more we know about each other the better...especially if I won't be meeting you before your session 🙂

Vendor Recommendations

There's no reason you can't go all out for your couples session. I love connecting couples with vendors to elevate your experience (think private chef, beach picnic, hair and makeup, dress rentals, boat or helicopter ride...)

Exclusive welcome Guide

Along with your questionnaire, I will send out the ultimate welcome guide that is exclusive to my couples. This guide is jam packed with anything and everything I could think of to make your session run smooth including tips on styling, what to wear, how to prepare, and so much more!

Location scouting

Along with the welcome guide, I'll send a list of some of my favorite locations on the island. We can stick to the list or be spontaneous! I do encourage couples to think of a place that might be special to them...maybe a favorite coffee shop or even just at your house! Seriously some of the sweetest and most intimate photos I've taken don't have a crazy backdrop at all.

unlimited clarity calls

Regular communication and check-ins leading up to your session so nothing gets missed and you are prepared!

travel included

No matter what side of the island you choose, I'll be there for no extra charge (yep, even though gas is almost $6 haha). Only thing not covered are high-end experiences (helicopter, boat, etc.)
