Eddy is awesome. He is so nice. I wanted him to shoot our wedding after I saw pictures on his page from other weddings at Lanikuhonua. They were so beautiful. He did sunset pictures on the rocks near the venue, I just had to have pictures like that.
Eddy is super helpful, offering help with setting up timelines for the day of (over a month before the wedding). He responds to emails quickly. I met up with Eddy and my planner Jenn, the week of the wedding (because of my busy schedule). He is very pleasant and easy to talk to. On the day of, you don't really notice the photographers taking candids and pictures in the background. He worked with my budget. & I think he stayed later than I paid him for too.
The week after my wedding, Eddy sent me an email with 72 pictures in my dropbox. They are soo beautiful. I am so happy with the pictures so far. I look at the pictures every day. My mom and family also love the pictures. I have to wait a couple months for the rest. Im so excited, I can't wait!
I would recommend Eddy to anyone that wants beautiful wedding pictures.

If it was possible to give MORE THAN 5 stars, I would give it to Renai photography. My husband and I planned a destination wedding in Hawaii from Philadelphia. Eddy was by far THE MOST helpful vendor we had. He went above and beyond his responsibilities as a photographer. He gave us advice on all the different vendors that we needed for our wedding and pointed us to the best vendors and venues on the island. He helped us make a timeline for our wedding and he was instrumental in keeping us on time through out the wedding day. He must have had multiple weddings scheduled ahead of us... but we never felt that he was too busy for our questions and concerns. He was probably one of the rare Hawaiian vendors who responds to emails the same day or the next day. Since I was hiring vendors without meeting them, I asked him for a Skype meeting which he happily granted. That first meeting sealed the deal. He was very professional and detail oriented when asking us about the plans for our wedding. His portfolio was jaw droppingly amazing! At the same time, he was so humble and so friendly, and easy to talk to. I knew that I would be very comfortable being photographed by him. After we hung up from our Skype meeting, I felt very assured and confident in Eddy. I knew we HAD to hire him. We hired him for our engagement session, day of wedding photography, and trash the dress. The way he captures light and the natural beauty of hawaii's sunsets are incredible. For our engagement session, he had 1 assistant, Tiani who was very pleasant and great to work with. For our wedding, he had 2 second shooters Nick and Derick both of whom are amazing photographers as well. Above all, he really is a genuinely nice person. On the day of the wedding we were so comfortable with Eddy that it didn't even feel like we were being photographed by a photographer but by a friend.

Whether you've just begun your search to find a photographer or you've been searching for months, STOP HERE! Eddy is fun, professional AND he's a great photographer. If we could, we'd give him 10 stars. He is very talented and captures beautiful photos especially at sunset. We would recommend Eddy to anyone for engagement photos and/or wedding photos.

EDDY EDDY EDDY! All I can say is if you want the best, you MUST go to Eddy @ Renai Photography! My husband and I live in San Diego but had our wedding in Oahu and fell in love with Eddy’s work. Due to the distance, our main contact was through email in which he got back to us in a prompt manner which helped out a lot, especially since I planned our entire wedding myself. Because we did not have an actual wedding coordinator, we were so grateful to have Eddy who kept us on schedule throughout our entire reception. Seriously, words cannot express how amazing he is and I say that from the heart. He is such a down to earth guy, yet, extremely professional. He even met up with us the week of our wedding at our venue to run through possible photo opps. Just when we thought he couldn’t get any better, as soon as we got back from our honeymoon, he already had several photos for us to view! I could not imagine having a better photographer than Eddy for one of the biggest days of our lives. Thank you so much! Love, the Aquinde’s <3

Working in the hospitality industry, I am seldomly impressed by quality of service. However, Eddy's professionalism and his eagerness to help just blew me away. My original wedding date got moved up by three months and it was Eddy who coordinated with my videographer and venue to find a date that all three were available. I found it just amazing that he was so willing to help as i am living in Las Vegas and knew how difficult it would be for me. He also worked with me in my budget so I can have my engagement shoot (in Las Vegas), wedding day and trash the day/sunset session. He also was so willing to meet with us several times to get to know us, know what we wanted and to go over the timeline of the day. Although a quiet man, he made it so easy and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, I am very camera-shy so he never forced us to do any poses that we were not comfortable with such as kissing. To top it off, his photos are unbelievable. Although I have not recieve my wedding photos yet, we constantly get comments on how wonderful our engagement pictures looked.

Eddy, thank you for helping our special day become a dream come true. I hope you know how great you really are!

When we began our wedding planning, we agreed that we needed to be very selective when deciding on a photographer. We wanted the photos of our big day to capture all our unique and special moments. We most importantly, wanted a photographer that we were comfortable with. We met with a few photographers and immediately knew which one we wanted. Eddy Fong of Renai Photography was everything we wanted in a photographer. He was personable, friendly, easy going, flexible, and so creative! He takes amazing and unique photos! Eddy was great throughout the entire process, communicating with us regularly, and helping us create a timeline that will work for our big day. On the day of the wedding, Eddy arrived early and stayed until the very end of the reception. Throughout the day, Eddy kept us on track, making sure everything went smoothly and on time. We were so comfortable with him and trusted him so much that we felt as though we hired an old friend. We could not have asked for a better photographer. We truly recommend Eddy to anyone!

Experience, Professionalism, Quality and Wonderful Service! This is what a you get when you hire Eddy as your wedding photographer. My wife and I had no idea what we were doing when planning our destination wedding in Hawaii. On the first day we met Eddy, he reassured us, walked us through what to expect on our wedding day, suggested vendors and created a rough draft of a time line for us to use. He was flexible, patient, and willing to go above and beyond to make our wedding planning experience a much easier one.

One word describes his pictures, GORGEOUS! My wife and I were seriously thinking about not hiring a photographer and only relying on family and friends to take pictures for us. That would have been a huge mistake. Trust me, I'm all about value and worth, and Eddy is definitely worth every cent and more. The last thing I wanted was to pay for photos that a family member or friend could take. Eddy's shots and edits are far from being amateur-ish. Eddy was able to capture moments, angles, and expressions that none of our family were able to obtain. He was our very own private paparazzi for a day, capturing million dollar shots that will last a lifetime.

It has been several months since our wedding. The food has been consumed, the flowers have died, the music has stopped and the guests have all gone home. All that is left from our wedding are the memories, pictures, and videos. We spent a lot of money on food, decoration, and entertainment, but in the end, only the pictures and videos will stay with us long after the celebration. If there are couples contemplating if they should hire a wedding photographer, my recommendation is that it's A MUST. Find other places to cut the budget. If you are a couple who's getting married in Hawaii, you're in luck, Eddy and Renai Photography are there.

There are no re-dos or restarts on your wedding day. Once a moment flashes by, it’s gone forever. In a day filled with countless special moments, often occurring simultaneously, couples need to hire someone who has the talent, skills and know how to capture them. Eddy did this for us, and I’m confident he can do it for anyone reading this review. Giving five stars isn't enough for the wonderful pictures captured by Eddy.

Best of luck to all the couples that are planning to get married. I know it can be stressful and tiresome. But rest assured, if you hire Eddy and Renai Photography, your wedding pictures are definitely something you do not have to worry about! Hire him! You will thank me later!

I cannot say enough amazing things about Eddy! I love love love LOVE his work. He was extremely helpful in the planning process (timelines, little things I may have forgotten, etc) and always easy to get in touch with. He was amazing the day of and took a million pictures and they're all extremely creative and fun.

Everyone who has seen Eddy's work so far cannot stop talking about them. Our families and guests were super excited to see his teasers and I can't wait to see more. I would hire Eddy again in less than a heartbeat.
