Blenda Montoro, what can I say, she is simply amazing! We are from Northern California and found her by reading reviews and checking out her website! Besides getting married to my husband, the photos was one of the most important pieces to our weddings. I would day dream what kind of photos she would take for us and she made that vision come true. She was so sweet and professional, I immediately was comfortable with her as well as my husband who is pretty camera shy.

If your having a destination wedding or live in Hawaii she would be a great photographer to work with. She will want to get to know you more over the phone if you are not nearby, which was great, I felt her personality immediately and is very good at explaining what she does and wants to hear your love story. I highly recommend her, and once you see your photos and every time you see your photos at home, you'll fall in love all over :-)

My husband and I were planning a decent size wedding in Southern California until we realized how much it was going to cost us and our guests during the peak of summer. Yikes!! We quickly changed tracks and decided to do a much smaller wedding - destination style. :) With 6 months to plan, along with our extremely busy work schedules, we had to book things quickly. As I searched for contemporary photographers, I came across Blenda's video on youtube and fell in love with her contemporary, chic style and HAD to book her! She was pregnant at the time and was already booked for the year. After speaking with us, she decided to squeeze us in her busy schedule (we got married on a Monday!) and the rest was history!! Blenda is the sweetest, most loving photographer you'll ever meet!! She and her husband are an awesome team together and worked well with our coordinator and videographers too. Our only regret is that we wish we had more time to spend with them before the wedding - they are such a great couple and have the most adorable son!! :)

Blenda was absolutely amazing to work with. We wanted photos that were creative and captured the moment, not overly-posed wedding pics. She took time to talk to us before we came to Kauai, to get to know us, our story, our families. Blenda took the most incredible pictures, captured the moments, and got amazing group shots without letting them look overly-posed. She was so fun and warm, and allowed my camera shy husband to feel comfortable and loosen up in front of the camera. After the group shots, she took my husband and I to some special places in Hanalei, to take more intimate shots. These are my favorite. We are so thrilled by how the photos turned out. Our family and friends are still in awe of our photos. I would recommend Blenda to any of my friends, she is wonderful!

We LOVED Blenda!!! She took the most beautiful photos that truly captured the spirit of our wedding. She knew exactly what we wanted and she delivered. I really liked her overall vibe, too. I felt very secure in her hands, and I just knew the photos would turn out perfectly - and they did! I wasn't even nervous about the fact that I had never been before been to Kauai or met Blenda in person before the big wedding day - it all turned out perfectly, just as we dreamed. 5 stars!!!

To me, the most important service in a wedding is the photographer. Photographs last a lifetime, so selecting the right photographer to capture my once-in-a-lifetime moments was crucial.

Words can’t describe how wonderful of a photographer Blenda is. Blenda has a very creative way of capturing the beauty of every single moment - we knew she was the one who was going to bring out the best in our wedding! From the start, Blenda was great to work with - very personable and easy going! She is very professional yet silly and fun and her personality really helped us to loosen up and feel more natural taking pictures! Blenda made me and my husband (and our kids!) feel so comfortable and it was like we knew her for years. She was caring and considerate, creative and attentive. She was very efficient and took the time to talk and email a lot ahead of time so she could deliver just what we wanted. She was very familiar with the island, and knew all the perfect spots for beautiful photos.

Her pictures are phenomenal, especially her ability to capture the colors and lighting to perfection on film! The moments she captured of us and our wedding party were truly magical - straight from a magazine! I love that the photos do not look staged, fake, or cliche - she created lovely images that capture the beauty of our location and the excitement and romance of the wedding day. Because she uses film, the lighting and colors of the photos are more natural and real. It barely takes any editing time afterward because she works hard to get the shots on film during the photo shoot. So we got the photos quick too! We have gotten compliments on our wedding photos like you wouldn't believe; many of my friends and family have told us that they've never seen better wedding photos taken.

I would recommend any couple who is getting married on Kaua’i to contact Blenda from BLENDA MONTORO PHOTOGRAPHY. You won't be disappointed!

It's rare that I willingly give anyone five stars but the fact is, Blenda earned them. My wife and I eloped to Hawaii and Blenda was really more than a photographer - she was a guide to the island and put us in touch with hair, make-up and even a wonderful man to perform the service. We did two shoots - an engagement session and wedding and I highly suggest other clients do the same. Blenda knows her world and can direct you to fantastic spots to get photos and we always felt warm and secure with her. She makes you feel like a friend and that makes for significantly better photographs - when we got married a few days later seeing her again was wonderful. It was a family affair for us and without her, her husband Raymond and even her baby...the day would not have been nearly as special. The photos are gorgeous. There is enormous pressure put on the professional's whose job it is to capture 'once in a lifetime' moments like weddings, but Blenda's smile never wavered and her photographic eye was great. She was open to suggestions, always gives you choices and is respectful of your desires. In short, she is great!

The lovely and talented Blenda Montoro Photography shot our engagement session on the Wailua River on Kauai. Our photos turned out beautiful! They captured not only our love, but the beauty and vibrant colors this island has to share. Blenda makes shooting effortless and eases you into every shot, feeling comfortable and natural. We loved working with her and cannot say enough wonderful things about her talent and professionalism.

Being my first professional photography experience, I don't have anything to compare my experience with, but have been very happy.

I planned my wedding in two weeks from California! And was when the only person not on Hawaii time was Blenda. She answered the phone when I called, helped me find an awesome officiant (my first choice turned out to be a nightmare), helped me find a location (awesome)...and was flexible with her time. She was very professional!

She wants to know about you and your story...and puts her heart into her work. When I learned about her background and training, I was impressed...and I would call myself a tough customer. We happened to hit it off, credit to her warm personality; I hope Blenda will be a friend for life. I fell lucky to be connected to Blenda through this experience.

Regarding the work: she put together a very creative portfolio. Many of the photos did not need retouching, editing, or effects for them to be awesome as they are. I had a hard time when it came down to choosing 50 photos for her to edit. When I posted them to Facebook, I got lots of great comments back.

I would book Blenda early as I know she books up. Aloha.

If I can give Blenda more than five stars I would! She was highly recommended to us by a friend and I immediately, absolutely loved her work. She is an amazing photographer and person as well! From our first email to our phone conversations, I felt like I was talking to a longtime friend, she truly made me feel at ease. She has a great soul and infectious smile. Working with her has been a pleasure, she took her time with us and even showed us some of her shots as she took them. Our entire family kept talking about how detailed she was. my husband and I feel truly blessed to have had Blenda. We highly recommend her and plan to use her again in the future..maybe for baby portraits??!
