We are fine art, Hawai'i-based and worldwide destination wedding photographers and cinematographers. Our style is an artistic photojournalistic in that we shoot very candidly, let the day unfold before us like a story, while at times getting a little more creative to capture those more dramatic shots. We want the viewer of our photos to feel like they are there in the moment. A bride should look back years later and be able to smell the perfume of her bouquet, or feel the tear that ran down her cheek as she first set her eyes on her groom. 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.

My wedding day fell in the midst of a hurricane/4 day rain storm/historical flooding. I had rented a bus to bring the bridal party to several specific areas with great backdrops for pictures. Because of the rain and flooding, all of these places were blocked off. It went from being a picturesque outdoor wedding/reception to an indoor ceremony/reception in a day. I was really bummed because I would not be able to capture the beautiful wedding day moments at the places I had imagined. However, Sheri (and Phil) did not disappoint. In fact, she completely exceeded my expectations! ALL of the pictures are AMAZING and I have several shots that PERFECTLY capture the uniqueness of my wedding day. I wouldn't trade those for anything. Don't even consider anyone else. Book with Kelilina Photography NOW!

We had our anniversary photos taken by Kelilina Photography on our vacation to Kona. We were hesitant to hire someone by looking at online reviews and photo gallery, but choosing Kelilina Photography was the best decision! Sheri was very easy to work with, responsive with her communication, delivered her photos by the date promised, and took beautiful photographs! We could not be more pleased! If we ever travel back to Kona, we will definitely have Sheri take our photos again!

On our recent trip to Kona, Sheri did a multigenerational shoot for our family of 18. We were VERY pleased with the photos. There were many great photos to choose from and she managed our large group with patience and flexibility. As well, Sheri was a great communicator throughout the entire process and returned our photos by the deadline promised. I would highly recommend Sheri to my friends and family and would not hesitate to use her again when we return to Kona.

Sheri was amazing! We hired her to be our videographer and words cannot say how happy we are with the video of our wedding. Just like that day, so was that video, absolutely perfect and more than we ever imagined. Her work is just beautiful!
Sheri went above and beyond for us and stayed a little longer then planned and was able to capture all of those butterflies in your stomach, smile on your face moments. She was so sweet and easy to work with before, during, and after our wedding. We can't wait to work with her again, which we already started planning our family photo shoot!
We most definitely recommend Sheri with Kelilina Photography!! We cannot thank you enough, Mahalo Sheri!!

I cannot recommend Sheri highly enough. She recently shot our wedding on Kona (March 2015) with her husband Phil officiating. We wanted a low stress experience (second wedding for both of us). They both could not have been more accommodating and helpful with arrangements. Everything came together beautifully and the pictures we received were amazing. Sheri is truly an artist and has an amazing flare for lighting, and capturing the moment. Everything looked very natural and not staged at all. When we returned she went out of her way to rush us a few preview shots to show family, and the thumb drive we received with all of our pictures came in a beautiful local wooden box. A nice touch. Thank you so much!!

I found Sherri Lynn online, planning a wedding across the ocean in Kona. She was extremely professional, had great follow-through and kept me in contact the whole time. On our wedding day, she had such a great attitude and kept us smiling and relaxed the whole time.

During the ceremony, we didn't even notice she was there, and when we did family photos afterwards, it was very relaxed and very fast.

We received the photos in time for our reception in California, and everyone was blown away at the quality.

The photos are incredibly beautiful and romantic, and my husband and I still look at them often. A good photographer is an absolute must for a destination wedding, and we were lucky to have Kelilina Photography. Thank you!

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.
