Dave was a pleasure to work with. It was nerve racking picking a photographer for our destination wedding, but Dave made me feel comfortable and at ease. He delivered all the types of photos that we asked for and was such an easy going person. He was very professional and extremely prompt at returning calls/emails. I give Dave my highest recommendation.

Words cannot express our gratitude to Dave. He must be an angel sent from wedding heaven! Aside from being a great photographer, he is a wonderful person! We found Dave through browsing the vendor albums at the Wedding Café. Once we viewed his albums and saw the packages he offered, we knew he was the wedding photographer for us. In his photos, he captured those unforgettable, joyful moments and emotions. It was as if we were at that wedding as a guest. So you could imagine how ecstatic we were when Dave said he was available on our wedding day!

Although it can get stressful during the wedding planning, when you sit down with Dave, you know everything is going to be okay and there's no need to stress. Dave helped us with our wedding day timeline such that our 3-hour coverage package captured our entire wedding--ceremony, reception, and family and couple photo shoots. (Mind you, we were flexible with our reception agenda and chose not to have the pre-ceremony/getting ready shots.)

Since our wedding venue was not at the beach or near a "picturesque" backdrop (e.g., mountains in the distance), we wondered if that would affect our portrait-style shots. That was not a concern to Dave. He said as long as he found the right lighting, it wouldn't matter the backdrop. He was right. Our photos were beautiful--from the "candid" photos that showed the sheer joy in our and our family and friends' faces to our portrait-style photos. When we shared our photos with family and friends, many couldn't believe the shots were taken at our wedding venue, a restaurant in the middle of town. We received nothing but wonderful comments of how beautiful the photos turned out.

Dave is an amazing photographer and has a great eye for capturing great shots. He captures the pure love and joy that is in everyone's hearts into his photos. Thank you, Dave!

Dave and Michelle were a joy to work with from the start. We first met them at the wedding cafe and right away they made us feel comfortable with their service and professionalism.

We hired Dave for our engagement and wedding. The engagement shoot was done at Sandy's beach and the pictures came out perfect. Dave gave us the DVD with all shots the next day. Great service.

For our wedding at Halekulani Dave made the pictures look natural and captured all moments with grace and his unique vision. The results were just amazing. All processed DVDs were ready for us in 10 days after the wedding. He also put all our pictures online for our friends and relatives to view.

We could not have happier with Dave's professional approach and how accommodating he was to all our requirements. Would highly recommend Dave for any event.

Dave Miyamoto & Company Photography is a company that I would recommend to everyone who's planning on getting married in Hawaii! Dave, as well as his wife, Michelle, were very responsive, flexible and very friendly, and of course, the quality of Dave's work is impeccable. Dave did our engagement shoot, as well as photography for our wedding, and all the images were perfect! We couldn't be happier that we chose Dave Miyamoto to cover our wedding. We really got our money's worth, and we will forever cherish the moments that Dave captured during our special day!

Wow!! Dave and Michelle Miyamoto are fantastic. We had our wedding vows renewed on the beach of Waikiki at 8am. Dave took absolutely beautiful photos and we had fun, a lot of fun. Michelle is fantastic so full of the Aloha Spirit and helpful. We had a split session and met Dave and Michelle on the North Shore in the evening for Sunset Photos, just beautiful. We have wonderful memories and photos and new Ohana (family) in Dave and Michelle, to help us remember the recommittment we made to each other. Thank you Dave and Michelle.

Dave and his assistant took the most amazing photos at our wedding. He kept me smiling for 7 hours(which is hard to do when you don't like having your photo taken). I would highly recommend using him for any event you have planned.

We are absolute fans of Dave and Michelle Miyamoto!!! They are the most friendly, efficient, warm and talented husband/wife team. I was planning our destination from Los Angeles, and Michelle made the entire process painless. She responded to my emails immediately, and everything was done in the most professional fashion. Did I mention how much we LOVED our photos and slide show? The wedding photos were delivered to us 2 days after the wedding, and we received the wedding slide show a week after we arrived home (and that's because this picky bride wanted to sort through the 1000 photos Dave took of our wedding, otherwise, we would have gotten it faster). In all, we would highly recommend Dave & Michelle Miyamoto, you will not regret it!!

My only question...who WOULDN'T hire Dave to be their photographer?! Not only is he SUPER talented but he is simply an AMAZING person. From the moment you meet him and experience the warm smile and his Hawaiian vibe...you will immediately relax knowing he and his team will take fabulous care to photograph your event. Weddings are stressful in and of themselves, but Dave brings a sense of professionalism and fun that is unmatched by any others I have seen. My family and friends RAVED about what a great guy he and his assistant John were. The best part...I didn't always know he was there. He is able to take those intimate photos we all want...without ruining the moment for you and your guests. I would hire him again..in a heartbeat! Oh and his wife Michelle...AWESOME!! Make sure you book Dave..you wont regret it :)

Dave Miyamoto and Co (including wonderful Michelle), absolutely ROCK. My husband and I got married on Oahu, but planned our wedding from California. From the moment we met Dave and Michelle, we were happy. They were laid back, honest and committed in understanding what we wanted from a photographer. We got married at the Halekulani, and although the backdrop was amazing, Dave and John seemed to capture everything (even the small tears down my face).

Their turn around time with the photos and their touch-up capability far exceeded anything expected. They sent a beautiful album and all of our family and friends constantly make comments about their wonderful photos.

The photos, their commitment to their clients, and their overall personalities are incredible. We highly recommend their services! Thanks Dave and Michelle for capturing our moment, which we will cherish forever! Mahalo, Barry and Mari

Dave and John are the two coolest most awesome photographers you could ever want!!!
You need to book him! I am only just going through the photos and he captured everything we missed! Singing, dancing, the awesome food and true emotion of our day!
Dave and Michelle answered every crazy phone call and question I had. I planned my wedding from the UK, and he let me call at whatever time I was available even thought it was an 11 hour time difference! He also booked me in and changed my appointment with an hours notice for my pre shoot! (Which ladies you should totally have!)
He knows the best locations and times of day for shoots, and truly never ever gets a bad photograph! And John is so much fun too! My friends think they are two of the most fun people you could have attend your wedding, let alone work one!

And the price is great!! He even did an extra photo album so we could show our friends in the UK who couldn't fly out!

In April I went out to try and find vendors, and Cake Lava suggested for a fun and real look to my wedding that I should use Dave. I am sooo appreciative. I have some of the beautiful shots of our wedding because of Dave! He truly is the best!
Thanks guys!

Dave and his crew are super talented and just a lot of fun to work with. I think the quality of his work speaks for itself..as the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words so just browse through his galleries and you'll see just how wonderful of a photographer he is. Michelle and Dave were super accommodating throughout the process, from when we first came to speak with them to the very last interaction. And Dave and crew were fantastic during the D day itself..professional, on time, laid back, creative and fun! Everything you'd ever want from a wedding photographer!

Dave and his assistant John were extremely easy to work with. He's extremely responsive when it comes to answering my questions and returning email and voice mail messages. He has a very laid back attitiude, and I think that helped our wedding party feel comfortable in front of him. Dave's photography prices are very competitive, and you get what you pay for. If you're looking for very good photos that capture your wedding, then Dave is great.

We used Dave for our wedding at the Outrigger reef on the beach on Sept 8th, 2012. I had done some research and saw his web page, everything looked great! I asked the person at the hotel to book him. Him and his assistant were very friendly and there was no issues the day of the wedding. We received a disk of all of our photos the next day and I was very excited to go through them only to realize.... He had taken 50 photos of my groom and his family and 2 with me and my family! The photos of my groom and his family didn't have me in them, I was told " I could go away while he takes them". I thought this was strange at the time but brushed it off. As a photographer, your job is to find out who the family members are and make sure you get the right people in the photos. I wish I would have made a list for him, it would have made things straight forward and I would have had more photos taken with my family.

Aloha Kylee,

We certainly appreciate your feedback above based on your wedding day photos ( 9.8.12). Dave and I ( Michelle - General Mgr.) reviewed your photo session in our archives the moment we received the WeddingWire review. Dave and Assistant Paula were happy to capture such a beautiful day for you.

In reviewing the shoot from start to finish, Dave and Paula captured what was their "standard" shot list, as they do for all weddings, according to groupings, timing of coverage purchased, family, bridal party, friends, extended family, and photos of you and your husband alone on the beach. All were absolutely lovely :)

Dave makes it a point to ask out loud at the end of his session, "is there any other shots to be taken, that I need to photograph before we are finished?"....Again - this is a standard procedure, as Dave was not provided a separate shot list from a Coordinator, or Family Member at all.

Being that this was a direct booking through Outrigger, and it was not a conventional booking with us directly ( in which in that case - a pre wedding consult would have taken place as another standard procedure), Dave and Paula shot what normally they shoot for any important Event, and Wedding.

Please note that the package itself only included (1) photographer. But to enhance the perspective, Dave brought along our 2nd shooter Paula, at no charge to you.

We certainly hope your wedding day was a wonderful experience. Again - we enjoyed working with you, and we loved your images as well, as you all were a wonderful group. We wish you all the best..! :)

Aloha ,
Michelle, Dave, Paula
