An Investment in Art



Kai-Photo's style of photography is journalistic, fun and candid with very minimal traditional posing. We like to capture important moments as they happen naturally during the wedding day without any pre-planned ideas or taking control. Photographs should not look forced or fake. Our goal is for you to feel relaxed while we record the true emotions, expressions, happiness and joy of everyone who has gathered together to celebrate your big day.



Your wedding day is just as important to us as it is to you. Our goal is to provide the highest quality service, attention and breathtaking imagery to last a lifetime. We provide an average of 40 to 50 hours of work for every wedding including consultation (via email, over the phone or in person), the actual photography time on your wedding day and processing your photos individually. All of this to create a set of timeless images for you to share with generations to come.



We encourage you to look through our blog to make sure you LOVE our work. It is important that our clients appreciate photography and have a passion for quality photos. With our many years of experience, we can capture the essence of the event and tell the complete story of your wedding day. ~ Grace & Kyler

I got married at the Moli'i Gardens in May. Planning a destination wedding is very difficult. Especially if most of the vendors in Oahu take forever to respond. But that wasn't the case for Kai-Photo. Grace and Kyler responded right away and even managed to create a timeline for me. Aaron and Mako were wonderful photographers! They took fantastic shots and even managed to get the kids to hold still for photos! All the photos turned out fantastic! They sent me a few photos for our thank you cards, and within less then a month, we were able to view all our photos online! We're so glad we picked them as our photographers. Thank you Kai-Photo!

OVERVIEW: Kyler and Grace of Kai-Photo were a great value for service. They were prompt, thorough, and professional with all of their communications. And the photos looked amazing - we still looked quite natural and like ourselves, but more polished. Thank you for making my wedding a success and capturing so many album worthy moments.
DETAILS: We found Kai-Photo via the web and this company was highly recommended by several venues and other vendors. Grace, the booking manager, replied to all my emails within the same day (though usually within the same hour); she was very organized and pleasant. We also communicated with Kyler since the planning stages; he was not only helpful with advice for photos but also for planning our wedding in the early stages to fill in where our wedding planner was a bit amiss. Not at all part of his job, but he was the consummate professional and was quite helpful anyway. Grace arranged for us to video-chat with Kyler so we could discuss specifics. After hearing his recommendations, we emailed Kyler a list of photos (with lists of specific family members and friends & certain preferred shots). He was very accommodating and offered his valuable expertise on what would work logistically. And then on the day of the wedding, my groom had to change hotels; Kyler's team came through yet again with a creative plan to best utilize our time to get the groom's shots in along with all the other wedding shots he suggested and we planned. Kyler and his second shooter that day (unfortunately I don't remember the man's name) helped us and our guests look our best. And our photos came back even sooner than expected.
BOTTOM LINE: Wedding photos are in general expensive, but Kai-photo delivers a high quality service at a competitive price. This is an investment that I'll enjoy for times to come. I recommend to book Kai-Photo while they are still available for your event!

Kyler and his staff did an amazing job on our wedding photos. Kyler is very detail oriented, thoughtful, professional, and takes the time to make sure that each photo is perfectly framed and lighted. My husband and I are two of the most unphotogenic individuals you will ever meet and I have to say the Kyler made us look pretty good. Thank you so much, we will treasure these photos forever!

Awesome photographers! I am from Alabama but got married on Oahu. We chose Kai after checking out LOTS of portfolios online, and we are so glad we did! We got 90 minutes of coverage with a destination package, and Kyler managed to get every photo we wanted and more. We were so excited to get such top notch quality photographers at a reasonable price. We got preview photos within a week and they are wonderful!

We had a destination wedding in Hawaii and we had Kyler as our photographer as part of a packaged deal with the venue. I was nervous since we didn’t pick who our vendors would be, but we were assured we were in great hands and that all would be fantastic even planned sight unseen.

The venue was exactly as we had hoped and Kyler did a fantastic job at Getting so much of our special day with photos we can cherish for a lifetime. I really appreciate that he got so many of my husband’s family before I arrived (I am late for everything and this day was no exception) and I adore his attention to detail in his photos, he focused on things I would have never known to ask for but would have missed not seeing later.
I also appreciated the way he handled our family and me and my husband during the private photos as I’m not the most publicly affectionate and my husband is not the most photogenic, but he got us shots we love. If you are in the market for a creative photographer, you can't go wrong by hiring Kai Photo!

We recently had a destination wedding in Hawaii. It was a packaged deal, so we were not sure who our vendors would be prior to the event. The venue was perfect and beautiful. Kyler did a fantastic job at photographing/capturing the beauty of this special day with photos we can cherish for a lifetime. Kyler was prompt and paid great attention to detail in his photos. Kyler, incorporated different angles and focuses which allowed for some excellent creative shots. We were most pleased with the private photos that we had requested to be taken on the beach that Kyler so graciously made time for us to take.

Kai Photo did my wedding back in July, and I was very impressed! The pictures came out beautiful, and Kyler was so nice & professional about everything! He was very patient with the families (trying to get them to make a straight line was like herding cats), and they were EXTREMELY accommodating for any modifications to the original plan.

We even did an impromptu session at some of the more interesting backgrounds on the properly, and the pictures were absolutely amazing. They scoped out the best places for picture taking, and I have to say, Kyler really has an eye for making pictures pop!

I was really nervous; since I didn't schedule an engagement session or anything with them, the wedding was the first time I was going to be working with them. But Kyler was so professional about everything, it put me at ease. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend them to anyone planning their wedding, but book early because they fill up fast!

There are so many wonderful things to say about Kyler and Grace. Every interaction we have had with them, from our first phone call all the way through getting our photos, has been marked by their professionalism and their obvious care for their photography.

We were completely blown away after our first phone call with Kyler. We had already fallen in love with his photography, but that phone call cemented the fact that we wanted to work with him. He discussed his photography style, talked us through a possible timeline for the day to ensure we got in all of the photos we wanted, and even started giving us some tips on how to make the most of our photography. We also loved that the photos would come with a photo release so that we could get the photos printed anywhere. It was clear that Kyler was both thorough and knowledgeable, and - as I have come to realize is characteristic of all of the time we spend with him - it was such a pleasure talking with him that we had no clue an hour had flown by when we got off the phone.

The day of our wedding, every one of Kyler's actions emphasized how amazing he is. He arrived early, and worked to help us maintain the photography schedule we had created so that everything ran smoothly. He quickly adapted to changes that came up in our plans, including when the venue had another ceremony going on in a spot he hoped to use for some pictures. Aside from the moments when he had to come to the rescue of something, we found that he was unobtrusive and let us keep our attention on our day while he captured all of the important moments.

We've now received and admired the finished photos. All of the pictures were absolutely gorgeous! From the posed shots of us as a couple, to all of the candid pictures showing the little things that we missed, the collection of photos truly captured our wedding day. We have been truly impressed with the quality of the work that Kyler did and are so glad that we chose Kai-Photo for our wedding.
