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.

We hired Sheri Lynn to shoot both our photos and film for our 1/6/17 Kahua Ranch wedding about seven months out. From the initial moment of contact Sheri Lynn was invested, she made me feel like I had just hired and old friend, so nice and personable. Then on our big day both her and her husband Phil were on site ready to go well in advance. They were so in sync with shooting and getting all the money shots you dream of having from your big day, it was incredible. I’ll be honest I was more focused on my wedding than what she was doing most of the day so when I got the photos of the ceremony I felt like I got to see it from a whole new perspective, it was awesome. Sheri Lynn provided ample input and guidance for different shot ideas making everyone feel extremely comfortable and confident. She was also sure to document the little details of the ceremony and reception that I would have never thought to ask her to shoot. She’s got skills. Something that was extremely important to me to have pictures and video footage that captured the emotion of the day and the Kelilina team did just that!! I’ve been watching my highlight reel on what seems to be repeat in awe of how well everything was captured and tied together. I felt as though she paid attention to our personalities and used that during the editing process to make a film and that captured us. In addition to her amazing on site skills, the editing time was extremely efficient and on par with was is stated on her website. Sheri Lynn makes you feel as through your wedding is the most important item on her plate and she truly puts her heart into each aspect of the process. I have already received so much amazing feedback on her work. My recommendation for prospective clients is that if you’re on the fence, don’t be, you will not be disappointed when you choose to go with Kelilina Photography + Films. I feel so fortunate to have joined the Kelilina Photography + Films family.

Sheri was incredible to work with! She beautifully captured the highlights of our day and preserved our memories so we can relive them over and over again. So creative with the video and shots that captured the emotion through our ceremony and first dance. My Tip is to keep her through the entire event!! I wish we would have opted for longer because I know that would have preserved even more memories to cherish- she's awesome!!

We hired Kelilina Photography + Films for our destination wedding in June 2016. It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Sheri and Phil. Leading up to our wedding day, communication with Sheri was great. She was always quick to answer any of our questions and walked us through how the day will go. The day before our wedding we were able to connect with her and do a day of walk-through to find some great spots for pictures. We appreciated this nice touch because it allowed us to bond with Sheri before the big and scope out possible photography locations. We received our photos and films exactly when they said we would (within two weeks!). Sheri and Phil were very professional throughout our wedding day, but also made us feel like we had two good friends capturing our day. She was able to capture so much more than the smiles and portraits and instead our photos reflect the true beauty and emotion of the day. We could not be more pleased or feel more blessed to have had Sheri and Phil apart of our day. We cannot thank you enough Sheri and Phil!

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!
