who do we think we are!?

we are a spaz, an artist, a comedian, and a yesman. we'll let you decide who's who.

here's just a handful o' things...you guessed it, about us.

* words with "oo" in the middle of them make us laugh.

* we are san diego natives.

* our kid is gonna drink your milkshake.

* never let april try to tell you a story. trust us.

* we love all 3 star wars movies. that's right, there are only 3, and a cool bonus fight scene with kim's favorite character... darth maul.

* david surfs. kim gives him crap because he's a longboarder.

* rain can do awesome impressions of her grandma.

* rubios fish tacos rule!

* kim is deathly afraid of sharks but loves to watch shark week.

* we ARE ready for some football.

* april's jokes are far from 100 percent awe and then some.

* rain gives the cpu on madden beatdowns that rival a ninja's fury.

* every one of us without a Y chromosome is extremely loud.

* i don't know what we're yelling about!

* things we love...hawaii, disneyland in december, dogs, the beach, and my good friend Baxter here.

* david really does speak. we've heard him.

* april doesn't drink, but you'd never know it by the voicemails she leaves.

* rain loves to swim and her cannon ball makes freakishly large splashes.

* kim's recipe for a good movie... explosions, explosions, and car chases that end in explosions.

* our math shows that the bird is equal to or greater than the word.

* we're fluent in movie quotes and sarcasm.

* david is an olympic pocket dialer.

* fact: bears. beets. battlestar galactica.

* april was not born in april. or was she?

* rain was born while it was raining.

* we love almost every kind of music. almost.

* we haven't proven it yet, but we think kim may be a robot.

* david loves to fly. kim does not.

* rain holds the world record for number of teeth lost in one year with 83.

* if you don't love everything by disney and pixar, april will fight you.

* we think YOU are what willis was talkin' bout.

* kim has a summer home on robot pirate island.

* you wouldn't know it by looking at him, but david can run really fast.

* we still love "that's what she said" jokes.

* your destination wedding? we want to go to there.

* it is impossible to offend us. it's as if we were abandoned as babies and raised by a nomadic tribe of truckers and sailors.

* poop Read less

If you haven't booked them yet, BOOK THEM NOW.

We love these guys. We first saw their work when a friend of ours got engaged and had them as their photographers. We weren't even engaged yet, but we followed their blog and knew when a special ocassion comes, we would want them to document that event. Their photos were magazine quality, yet so real, and it was amazing to see how much of an eye for photos they have. We loved their work so much that we had to book them before we booked our venue. That's how good they are.

When it came to the engagement and wedding shoots, you can tell this couple are doing photography for love, not for money. Our two hour engagement session ended up being all day, as they shot and shot pictures and (camera lovers as we are) me and my now husband loved every photo they took. They can capture emotions like no other, and can tailor your pictures as you like them. For us, we wanted our photographs to reflect our personalities (enter lightsabers) and they sure turned out awesome! Our wedding at Bali Hai was captured so amazingly, and again they took extra time (didn't have to) to take pictures of us even after the wedding.

We are so happy with how our photos turned out, and we are so lucky to have Ohana document our special day! Just think of it this way, you really only want to get married this one time, and you would want to have absolutely beautiful photos to remember your special day by. If you book Ohana, not only will you not be disappointed, you would be extremely happy you did.

Ohana came highly recommended from several of my wife's coworkers who had used them in the past. Ohana was the first vender we interviewed, and we knew as soon as we left the meeting, that we had found our photographer! It was a great feeling to be able to cross an item off our long checklist. David and Kim were very professional, responsive, timely, their work product outstanding, pricing competitive, and most of all they were a blast to work with! From the onset of our engagement session, David and Kim made us feel very comfortable and relaxed doing something that we usually find uncomfortable. They were fun, energetic and had a keen eye to incorporate normally overlooked aspects of our selected photo shoot setting to create an incredibly diverse album that everyone loved, especially my wife and myself. By the time the wedding came, we knew we were in good hands (and eyes) with David and Kim. We barely noticed David and Kim (in a good way) during ceremony and reception, yet they captured everything including some of the most amazing moments from incredible angles that were absolutely STUNNING! David and Kim, "Ohana" were everything we could have hoped for in a wedding photographer and we would recommend them to anyone looking for the complete package in a wedding photographer. We are grateful to have selected and worked with Ohana and would not think twice about doing it again. Thank you Ohana.

Who would have thought one photographer could be that much better than another. Just point and shoot...right?
Wrong! Ohana proved us way wrong. Choose Ohana, but be ready to go beyond the usual, the mundane.... be ready to take your photo session to the edge! Ohana will make you look like you are models on a photo shoot. You'll have wedding pictures that could be in a magazine. They do not settle for ordinary and neither should you. We love love love Ohana, not only because they are friendly, creative, and fun, but at the end of the day, they feel like family! Go with the best--OHANA!

David and Kim were the first people my husband and I booked after we saw one picture that they had taken at my friend's wedding (yes they are that good!). It was the BEST decision we made. They are super nice and creative. My husband and I get anxious easily when we take pictures but they made it fun with their easy going personality. Everyone that saw our pictures were blown away on how AMAZING they turned out. We LOVE them and we definitely plan on calling them again for future shoots!

We knew we wanted to go with Ohana photographers after meeting with Kim and David. They are so warm and personable that it's hard not to like them right off the bat. They responded quickly to emails and our first experience working with them on our engagement shoot was phenomenal! David had gone early to scope out good places to shoot and they were able to direct us well. My husband and I loved feeling like models for the day and the pictures turned out wonderful!
On our wedding day David and Kim had my whole wedding party laughing and having a good time. They worked well with everyone and made us feel great about how our wedding turned out. I would definitely recommend Ohana Photographers to anybody getting married! In fact they will be doing a friend's wedding this June and I look forward to seeing them there!

Ohana Photography made saving for our wedding worth every penny. (:
David and Kim are fun, professional, creative, talented, just full out totally AMAZING! Their work speaks for itself!
This was the hardest review to write because I wasn't sure how I would be able to convey how much we loved our engagement and wedding photos.
We are sooooooooo happy!
I would have every single photo printed and hanging on our walls at home if possible lol!
Through their photography they captured our personalities and the love we share for each other. David and Kim made us feel comfortable and we had so much fun with it. Our photos are crazy awesome!
It was my dream as a girl not to have the princess poofy dress but beautiful wedding photos. As young as I can remember I always had a camera in my hand, so having the photos they created of my wedding day was more than I could have ever wished for.
David and Kim thank you both for capturing a day we will always remember.
We love you guys! (:

Let me start by saying I am SO happy that we hired Ohana Photographers for our wedding. I was really stressed out because I wanted to make a good choice. I figured we would have the pictures for the rest of our lives and so we wanted them to be fantastic! So, we did our research and met with Kim and Dave beforehand. I instantly got a good feeling from them. It sounds silly, but I just felt really at ease after talking to them and looking at some other weddings that they'd done. I really liked that they listened to what we wanted and they offered some great suggestions based on what we were describing. After we hired them and went over everything, I never really worried about it anymore because they had great communication and I just knew they were taking care of us. My family and my friends were so impressed with the pictures and I got so many compliments on them. We've sort of made them extended family because they were with us on such an important day for us. I can't recommend them enough. Whenever anyone asks me if I know a good photographer.....I don't hesitate, I tell them to call Kim and Dave at Ohana.

Ohana Photographers are the BEST! I know, lots of people say things like that, but I truly mean it. If you want to have a fun, professional, amazing experience, these are the photographers to have! My now husband Paul and I were lucky enough to have our engagement session at the Santa Monica Pier. A perfect location suggested by Kim of Ohana Photographers. I knew we would get some fun and beautiful pictures there, but I really had no idea. I'm not the most comfortable person in front of a camera and neither is Paul, but we had nothing to worry about. David, Kim and April made us feel so comfortable that we hardly even felt like we were being photographed. We had so much fun, it was like spending the day at the beach with some wonderful friends. When we saw the actual photos I almost cried! Beautiful! Amazing! Wonderful! Those are just a few of the great adjectives I can think of to describe them. I was truly pleased. The colors were amazing, the "realness" of the pictures were outstanding! I don't really care for every picture to look posed. Not these! Oh and I can't forget...SEXY! We took some fun and sexy water pictures that turned out fabulous! I never would have thought of something fun like that. Paul and I are so happy with not only the beautiful pictures that Ohana Photographers provided us with, but with the wonderful experience they provided. They are professional, fun, kind, AMAZING! I would highly recommend them to EVERYONE! You will NOT be dissapointed!
