Specializing in weddings and portraiture in Hawaii, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Chicago and destination weddings, Kelilina Photography's style continues to be an 'artistic photojournalistic' in that we shoot very candidly, capturing moments as they happen while also getting a little more creative at times to get those more dramatic shots.

Wedding photography to us is not just documentation, it's art and emotion captured for you, forever.

The most important part in finding the right photographer for you is knowing you'll be comfortable enough to relax and enjoy your day. I strive to be that person.

Sheri was everything I wanted in a photographer and more! She showed up early on the day and did a great job making me feel at ease. She even ran out to the store to get a needle and thread when she found a loose ribbon on my dress!
She was so professional and fun to work with and the finished product is beautiful! I am so happy with how everything turned out!

Sheri was amazing! She photographed my wedding and I couldn't have been happier with her performance! She lives on the Big Island and flew to Oahu and drove all the way up the North Shore. She has all pictures edited two weeks after the event where as most other photographers take 4-6 weeks for editing. The rights to all of the photos were released to us and she sent us an 8GB thumb drive with all our photos so we can go and print them wherever and whenever we want! She even took so many more pictures than I ever realized. I had sent her samples of photos that I liked and she made sure to incorporate as many of them as she could. They all looked fabulous!

Sheri was phenomenal. We had portraits done on our honeymoon and Sheri did a beautiful job. She is so sweet and nice - the kind of person you'd love to just hang out with. My husband doesn't really like doing portraits, but even he had fun!

We had a 2 hour session with Sheri. She flew over to Maui and scoped out the area before the time of our session. She found a little rainforest area with an amazing tree a few miles up the road from where we were staying. We did an hour there and then went to the beach. Her pictures are beautiful - she captured our personality as a couple wonderfully and the gorgeous scenery of Hawaii. We didn't get a single picture that we disliked; they are all absolutely beautiful. I actually have our 2 favorite pictures on canvases hanging up in our home.

My husband and I are planning on going back to Hawaii in a few years and are planning to have another portrait session with Sheri. I highly recommend Sheri - you won't be disappointed.

Sheri was absolutely AMAZING!! We flew in from California to have our wedding in Kona so we didn't get to meet Sheri until the day of the wedding. But few weeks before the wedding Sheri emailed us and introduced herself. She told us a little bit about herself and showed us pictures of her work. We were able to give her a description of how we were as a couple to help her get a feel of our personalities. She even asked us to show her samples of pictures that we would like taken. The day of the wedding went flawlessly! She made us feel so comfortable and everything felt so natural. She was very open to any picture opportunities that we wanted to take and had great suggestions of things for us to do. We never felt rushed or forced to do anything we didn't want to do.

Sheri has an incredible eye for detail. When we finally received the sneak peek of pictures, we could not have been more thrilled! She took pictures of the tiny details that we would never have thought of and created such a wonderful memory for us. Looking back at the pictures makes us want to get remarried all over again! My friends and family all appreciated her patience, professionalism, creativity, and her overall service and personality! We are highly recommending her services to anyone in the area. We will definitely be contacting her again when we are back in Kona. THANK YOU SHERI!

We had planned a last-minute wedding and Sheri was able to work with us to get our day captured for us. She asked in advance about what styles of photos we wanted, and also came up with great ideas of her own. She was great to work with, and we'd definitely recommend her!

Sheri photographed a surprise vow renewal I planned for my husband's and my one year anniversary - let me just say that Sheri is the best of the best. Not only is her work beautiful, she's just so sweet, which made working with her a dream. She's thorough, professional and so incredibly thoughtful - she even went out of her way to suggest locations, florists and our officiant! We just received our photos today and love every.single.one. They're better than we could have ever hoped for! Sheri perfectly captured one of the most special moments of our life, and thanks to her, we'll have the most amazing photos to cherish for the rest of our lives. We can't thank you enough, Sheri!

I most definitely recommend Kelilina Photography :)
