Creating Memories From The Heart For The Heart
Capturing the emotions from a couple’s photo session has to be my most favorite style of photography.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so starting a life together with couples photo session should be next on your calendar. I enjoy capturing the love & emotions of a couple on a deserted stretch of sand at sunrise! The sounds of the gentle waves washing on shore and the wind blowing the fresh ocean air are so invigorating & calming. This is what I hope to bring to your couples’ photo shoot! My top priority for your session is to keep it light & fun for everyone!

We don’t know how to pose, it’s our first time taking pictures by a professional, these are the very first words I hear at the start of every photo shoot, individuals or couples. Don’t worry, I got you! I’ve been posing people for the last 12 years, follow my prompts & we’ll get some amazing fun pictures that I promise you’ll absolutely love! All you have to do is enjoy the moment!
Let’s get in touch, tell me what you hope to get from this photo shoot, a beautiful sunrise or sunset at the beach. Do you love a more forestry backdrop? I’ve grown up near & around these shorelines. Shhhhh, I have secret sunrise spots I’ve found while exploring locations to capture a colorful sunrise image or two for myself.

Iphones & Android phones are great for taking quick snapshots, but a professional Oahu photographer can capture your personality & moments, but most of all seeing you at your best! I can help you with posing in a flattering way & with the help of a flash, if needed, I can add depth & dimension to all your portrait images.
How much advance notice do I need to schedule a couples portrait photo session?
I prefer four weeks’ notice prior to your Hawaii photo session, but depending on my scheduling & if I do have a date open, at minimum two weeks.
What should I wear?
For many of you, this will be the first time in front of a professional photographer’s camera lens & your anxiety levels will be high, so my advice to you is to wear something comfortable.
