Absolutely Loved Photography was the best! We are not from Hawaii so we were solely going off of a list of recommended vendors given to us by the hotel but as soon as we got to Anna's website, we instantly fell in love with her pictures. Anna was friendly, prompt with her emails, and professional. We didn't do too much research on other photographers but her prices seemed reasonable. Anna is also very prompt in getting you pictures. She sent us a preview of some of her favorite photos when we got back from our honeymoon. We are so happy we were able to work with Absolutely Loved Photography and would highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer in Hawaii. It sounds like she is well-known and has a great reputation in Hawaii for taking amazing photos since our DJ, Florist, and our hotel all knew her and had only the best things to say about her.

Stephanie and Anna graced us with their time and professional talent to capture precious moments throughout our wedding. My husband and I found them through our wedding venue and were very pleased by the quality of their service. Punctual, creative, accommodating and perceptive, both Stephanie and Anna took photos that were meaningful and personal. They made us feel very comfortable throughout the whole process and had a lot of creative suggestions for shots to take and were open to take pictures that we wanted as well. Highly recommended!

Stefanie and Anna did both our engagement and wedding photos, and I cannot say enough about them. They are so kind, professional, and made us feel so comfortable throughout the process (even my husband who hates having his picture taken). Romantic, timeless photos that capture the feeling of the moment perfectly. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks for everything ladies! xo

First off, weddings can be expensive, but you can manage your expenses by choosing which vendors you want to spend more money on. Absolutely loved was one of our more expensive vendors, but my husband and I decided that our media (photo and video) would be where we wanted to splurge for our wedding, we knew we wanted memories we could look back on forever. Once I saw the work of this company and met with Stefanie and Anna in person, I knew I had to have them. They create beautiful art! We had them shoot our engagement photos, which definitely helped to establish a bond with us and them, plus it gave us some practice with the poses and being in front of the camera. I fell in love with our engagement photos, and I can't wait to see our wedding ones! Stefanie and Anna even chose to stay a little late at our wedding to take pictures of a surprise we had for our family. They are the sweetest ever and I only wish I could bring them with me everywhere!

We were so excited to have Stephanie and Anna photograph our Wedding! They are a great team and very professional. They both had great suggestions and tips, and really took their time to discuss everything in both consultations. I like that they took the time to get to know us. Since our wedding was very recent we have only gotten a few images, but they are already amazing! I can't wait to see the rest!! Thank you both so much for being there!

I chose Absolutely Loved Photography because I was in search of a very specific style of wedding photography. For me, the best type of photographs captures moments in their purest sense. The sample shots available on their website and Instagram account are pure magic and you could tell that Stefanie and her team have an unique artistic ability.

I showed my, now, husband the samples and he was also very impressed, especially when we compared the photography to other wedding photos we have seen. Our only concern was the price, which to be fair is completely on par with other top wedding photographers on the island. When we contacted them, we told them how much we loved their photography but that we were also concerned about the price. We were encouraged to come in and meet with them, and we initially met with Stefanie, who was amazing from the start. She showed us more samples and then took the time to work with us to create a sample timeline that would capture everything we wanted, within a set time frame, which would accommodate our budget. Wedding photography is an investment and, while I know everyone has a different budget, my biggest advice is to invest wisely in this aspect of your special day. A picture, good or bad can last forever, and when you look back on you wedding day I think it’s important to have images that take you right back to specific moments; Absolutely Loved Photography provided this for us.

On the day of the wedding, Stefanie and Anna were just too wonderful. They arrived early and stayed later than scheduled. They made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, which enabled us to get the most natural shots possible. They were also so patient and wonderful with our dog and captured some very special images of our family, and him alone. Words can’t really express how happy I was and continue to be with our decision to use Absolutely Loved Photography.

Anna & Stefanie were absolutely wonderful to work with. Our wedding was a destination wedding (from Texas), which made things a little difficult when it came to looking for the best scenery to take photos. I have never planned a wedding before and I did not know much about timelines, locations, or pricing. Anna & Stefanie worked with me when it came to price and timelines, and I am truly grateful. Our photos of both the ceremony and reception came out perfect. We only had about 30-40 relatives travel with us from Texas and practically everyone is photographed! Also, they were nice enough to stay a longer than they had to and took more photos for us. These are memories we will cherish forever! My family really enjoyed their company as well. They are very nice, friendly and professional. You can see that they are really passionate about their job! Thank you Anna & Stefani! <3

We arrived for our toes in the sand beach wedding in the midst of 2 hurricanes about to converge on Oahu... they fortunately did not, but Stefanie was so empathetic to my concerns about the rain possibility that she kindly agreed to come to the location 2 hours before we had planned. That relieved so much pressure for me... The sun was out and the photos were amazing! She and her son Lucas captured all of the moments so beautifully and naturally and they both had such warm and calming energy which was really wonderful to be around, especially on a big day like that.


She also got the thumb drive of our photos to us incredibly fast so we were able to put together a slide show for our reception 10 days after our ceremony. I just can't say enough really about their talent and also the easy way the afternoon flowed. My husband and I are still patting ourselves on the back for making the decision to hire Absolutely Loved, lol. But really, it's one of the most important moments in life so to have a photography team there that makes everything seem (and most importantly look!) so natural was a huge, huge relief.

I'll wrap up here by pasting my email to Stefanie shortly after received our Flush Mount Album:


Dear Stefanie,

So we just poured a glass of wine and opened up our album that arrived today. It's absolutely beautiful! We love it! We keep going through it, then starting again. You did such a great job from start to finish and we are so happy that we found you to photograph our beach wedding...we honestly couldn't be happier. We didn't know exactly what the album would look like but now understand what "Flush Mount" means and it's awesome!

Thank you for everything, Stefanie.

Much Aloha,

Shannon & Teddy
