Ahola James & Bev,

WOW....Speechless. We are absolutely blown away. We were definitely anxious waiting for the pictures, but it was no doubt well worth the wait!

You are very talented to be able to portray us as a couple in such a unique, fairytale kind of way.
We are just thrilled with your work.

We cannot really describe how content we are. You are so amazing at what you do... I can see why you do this for a living. You have a special talent, and it's wonderful to see such beautiful photographic memories, that will stay with us forever.

James you were very great to work with. We loved your energy and positive disposition during the shoot. Your energetic spirit and eye for creativity set you apart.

We cannot thank you both enough for a fantastic experience!

With thanks,
Ashley & Jason

James captured our day flawlessly! Our whole event was born out of finding a random photo by James Rubio on a Google search of Hawaii rainforests. I'm serious, we weren't planning a wedding, just a vacation! I was instantly in love with the magic that his photo conveyed. I knew that we needed to get married again and James needed to be our photographer! Although I never did get my rainforest photos, our wedding renewal on the beach was just as beautiful as I had hoped. James and Bev were wonderful to work with, professional and very sweet. His energy on our day was great. I felt like he was as excited to be there as we were. He gave just the right amount of direction while also letting us do our thing. My ONLY, very minor, complaint was that it took a long time to get our photos, but it was ABSOLUTELY worth the few extra days. Truly. Our photos weren't something we wanted rushed anyway. We are already planning our return to the Big Island in 2018 for our family photos in the RAINFOREST. Cant wait! Mahalo!

James and Bev are a dynamic team to work with. From the first question I sent, a great bond was formed and Bev was able to walk me through all of my questions politely and courteously (and believe me, there were a ton of questions)!

Once we decided to book with them, both James and Bev made an effort to find out what we liked so that we could tailor our shoot the way we wanted. James went above and beyond to capture exactly what I wanted and our engagement pictures are breathtaking to look at.

I would absolutely recommend James to everyone going to the Big Island for a photoshoot and I hope to work with him again!

James and Bev are the best!!! Bev walked us through all the logistics beforehand. We had never met either in person until the day of our wedding (we live in California. They're based out of Hawaii) and we couldn't be happier with our pictures and the entire experience. They really captured the moment and we can relive the excitement and all the feels through their work! Throughout our wedding day James and his second shooter, Leiko were accommodating, professional, and respectful. James was really easy and fun to work with and we always felt at ease. Nothing felt scripted or too posed and he got amazing shots with us just being ourselves and having fun with our friends and family.

Bev and James were absolutely amazing! I truly can't even desrcribe how perfect they made our wedding day. Our wedding was short notice and they responded very quickly getting dates together right away. They both were very kind, professional, understanding, amazing and helpful! On our wedding day James showed up and captured every moment from start to finish. My husband and I had never had photos taken before and were worried how we would look, pose etc... James just made us feel so comfortable and just be ourselves and enjoy the moment. The photographs were more beautiful then I could have ever imagined. Looking at our photos still puts the biggest smile on my face and brings tears of joy to my face every time. He truly has such a beuatiful eye for photography! I would recommend Bev and James to everyone! I can't even describe how beautiful, amazing, wonderful, perfect the photographs are.

James and Bev are a dream team to have worked with for our destination wedding on the ethereal and beautiful Big Island! Our ceremony was small and sweet, so James was our only photographer. Bev, however, was diligent and easily accessible with any messages and questions we had, all the way up to our wedding day. James was so fun, welcoming, and really helped us feel comfortable with every photo he shot. Nothing was rigidly posed and we felt as natural as could be, riding the high of such a perfect day. The results show and we are so very in love and pleased with everything James and Bev provided for us. The masterful artwork produced speaks for itself, but you couldn't ask for a friendlier pair to have involved on your special day. We felt so lucky and blessed to have such a caring and talented team to capture the magic of that day. So much love and a big, grateful MAHALO from Mike and Amy Jutras!

I cannot say enough good things about James! He was truly the best investment of my entire wedding!My best friend found him for me, and from the moment I actually clicked on his website I was enthralled in his work. Not any other photographer moved me, like James' work. His work provoked emotion and a feeling of connection with the subject in EVERY SINGLE one of his pictures. I couldn't find, not one, session that I didn't absolutely love! I knew that I had to have James as my photographer. He was the first person, after my planner, that I booked. It was the greatest choice I made and I'm so happy we did. Great quality work, VERY professional and his wife Bev was such a great help through everything. They worked with all of my needs and was very understanding about all the traveling that my wedding required. I'm forever grateful to James and his second shooter Leiko. They did an amazing job and I couldn't be happier to say he was my photographer. Everyone always compliments on how gorgeous our pics are and how they look like they should be in a magazine, and each time I hear that type of response it just solidifies the fact that I made an incredible choice by choosing James Rubio Photography!!!

If you're looking for a photographer that you can TRUST to capture your wedding day in it's full glory, this is the man you want to hire. Being a wedding photographer myself, Jame's work never stops short of taking my breath away. But his beautiful work isn't the only reason we went with James, his level of professionalism and easy going personality makes him a pleasure to work with and have around on your wedding day. When hiring vendors like a photographer that will basically be with you every moment of your wedding day, it's so important that you not only live their work, but enjoy them as people as well, and James was a blast to have around on our wedding day.
