Photography by Hawaii Wedding Photographer Brandyn Fidel. Brandyn's photojournalist approach provides memories that will last a lifetime.

"Photography has brought a special purpose and meaning to my new life. After graduating from college, I quickly realized a 9-5 desk job was not the lifestyle I wanted to live and photography was my calling. It has opened a door that many people don’t a have a spare key to and enabled me to awaken that sense of creativity and passion that seemed to be lost after completing grade school. Wedding photography is my passion now. To stop a moment in time by recording it in a photograph that symbolizes the union of two lives is truly a breath taking experience. And that’s what I do best, I’m a storyteller. When I’m not on storytelling, I’m spending quality time with my beautiful fiance, playing with my two pugs, surfing, or doing some freelance photography."

Brandyn was absolutely awesome. I like researching my purchases. From new cars, to clothes, shoes, electronics, etc... and it was no different w/ wedding vendors. I searched through every single wedding photographer on Oahu and chose Brandyn.

He has a great photojournalistic style which we wanted and his prices aren't insane like 2 others that we were considering. I felt like his pictures measured up to the other (much more expensive) vendors - Frank and Christie. I would have totally booked either of them if I hadn't found Brandyn's site off of wedding wire. I always believe in shelling out the extra $$ if the quality is great, BUT there is nothing and I mean NOTHING I like more than getting a good price on quality product. It's the one satisfaction I long for doing all my hours of researching and I really hit the jackpot on our wedding vendors.

Brandyn is a super laid back local guy. I met with him on a trip back to Hawaii a few months before the wedding. He answered all my questions w/ ease and also agreed to do a family shoot for us as part of the package since we had already done our engagement photos the year before. He was prompt to reply to emails and all of our scheduling questions and was easy about the whole thing.

He showed up exactly on time on our wedding day w/ his assistant Jason and shot for 8 hours. We got our photos within a month and they are amazing. I am so happy with the end product and I know I made the right decision hiring Brandyn.

I would recommend Brandyn in a heartbeat to anyone!! Not only did he provide us with the photojournalist style of pictures we wanted, he was professional, friendly, accommodating, and generous. We get glowing reviews on our pictures from everyone who sees them. Brandyn promptly returned emails and phone calls, and even followed up with us after the wedding. We were so impressed that he provided us with all of our photos on CD and our photo book within just one month. When I asked if we could do a photo booth theme with partner photographer (since we were having a small wedding), he said he was working on something along those lines and provided it for free as their trial run. Brandyn was quick with all of the pictures, including the the posed pictures, and captured so many beautiful moments without it feeling intrusive. He also agreed to take photos of our rehearsal dinner rather than doing engagement photos, which came out great, too! Don't think twice and book him!!

I found Brandyn when he and two of his friends started their own photography business. Both our engagement and wedding photos came out beautiful and memorable. His photojournalistic style was EXACTLY what we wanted for our photos. He managed to capture the essence of our big day without us having to settle for just the "posed" photos.

My family and friends RAVE about his photos.

Along with his fab photos, Brandyn was professional and personable from beginning to end. When you're spending 12 hours with a wedding vendor - don't you want it to be someone you want to hang out with for an entire day?

As uncomfortable and stiff as my husband and i were on all of our shoots, (engagement, day of, & trash) Brandyn still did a great job and got great pictures! I was blown away by our photos and so was everyone that saw them! Brandyn is a wonderful person to work with and made us feel so comfortable! It almost felt like he was a guest at our wedding..who just so happened to have a camera! With his eye for detail, the quality of all of his photos, and most of all how friendly he is.. BOOK HIM! Picking Brandyn as my photographer was one of the best decisions i made for my wedding :)

Brandyn and his team shot our engagement session and wedding, and Brandyn, Travis, and Jason were awesome! My emails and phone calls were always answered promptly and they were always cool, accommodating, and flexible with our requests. They always arrived early and prepared. Their photojournalist approach produced amazing images. They captured all of our emotions, all the little details, the beautiful scenery of our beach wedding, the colorful decorations, the Chinese lion dancers at our reception, and more than we could have ever asked for. They were enthusiastic and thorough, capturing all the moments and details beautifully. My husband hates taking photos but felt comfortable with their mellow and laid back style. They respected our guests and were polite and professional. Everyone who sees our photos is awestruck with the unique and artistic angles and high quality of the photographs, and a few of my friends cried watching the slideshow they made for us. I have highly recommended them to all of our friends, and one of my girlfriends has already booked them for her wedding. We are really happy when we look at our engagement and wedding photos and are so thankful we found Brandyn, Travis, and Jason!
