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! (:

Ohana Photographers are absolutely AMAZING! They shot our wedding in early August 2011. The location was in upstate New York and they traveled from the west coast for our big day. Even with being thousands of miles away they were great at following up with us (pre-wedding) and assuring us that everything will go smoothly - and it did! Their work was very impressive and we are very satisfied with the results. They are hands down the best part of our wedding. They are also extremely friendly and creative. We had so much fun shooting with them and all of our guest had nothing but good things to say about them. OHANA is the best!

There are no richer colors or moments realistically captured in any other wedding photo's I have EVER seen than with Ohana. They are in every aspect of every memorable action- YET, you never feel it. Their prescence is completely oraganic within the wedding- but not a single shot is missed! Now that we've gotten their 'skillz' and talent mentioned, we can't end without mentioning how ABSOULTELY AMAZING THEY ARE AS HUMAN BEINGS (or maybe they are reptiles from another planet with wicked eyes for the still artistry of life...), you will be kept at ease even if the day is falling apart around you (trust me- I know!) because of their soothing aura's- it almost feels like they have been your friends for many years. If it wasn't such a hassle the first time, I would get marrired every year, just so that they could come take more pictures of me and hang out! You will not find a better photographer on this planet.

We have been blessed to met one of the most NICEST, TALENTED and GIFTED people in our lives. They have made of the most imported events in our lives memorable. They have been able to work around our hectic schedules of work, kids school hours and activity schedules. They've made the process of planning our wedding and well as the wedding day so easy for us. They were able to bring to life the ideas of pictures I've wanted for our wedding day even though I was having trouble describing what I wanted. When we saw some of the pictures they've created for us, I literally cried. I don't consider myself pretty much less beautiful, but I have to say they made me look gorgeous. Needless to say, they are one of the best things that has happened to us!!

The photographs taken for my wedding were phenomenal. I couldn't have asked for better pictures. I was more than pleased with the price, quality, and all aspects of ohana photgraphy. The engagements photos were just as awesome. This company has real gift in finding the perfect spot for photos to take and how to make them look their best. I have no complaints about my entire experience with Ohana Photography.

Oh man, I don't even know how to begin writing a review for Ohana Photographers! From the beginning my husband and I knew that our photography was the most important aspect of our wedding and we agonized over who we should hire to shoot our big day. It took approximately 2.5 seconds of looking at Ohana's amazing gallery to know we wanted to meet with them and just a few short minutes into our client meeting we knew they were perfect for us. We were a little hesitant to book without David for our wedding but that was before we knew how awesome April and Kim are!

We went with their complete package, an engagement session with album, wedding day coverage with a couple extra hours and album and a day after session. From the beginning, they went above and beyond to make our photos the best they could be, including being open to all our crazy ideas and suggesting even better ones. They were in constant contact and helped us pick out props, suggesting new ones when they saw links we'd like. They even brought extra props for our engagement session, taking the time to get to know us so that everything would reflect us both individually and together. After looking at our engagement album, several people have remarked that it somehow reflects us perfectly.

Which brings us to their albums. We've only received our engagement album thus far but it is absolutely breathtaking. The photos really pop on the smooth, high quality paper and the finish on the cover feels lovely to the touch. They laid the images out perfectly and we're really happy we added some extra pages. We can't wait to order our wedding album next and we'd love to order one of their gorgeous canvases if we could find room in our budget.

In addition to their amazing talent, David, Kim, April (and Nely!) have incredible creativity and could always see the potential in a shot that others might have overlooked. They were both fun and professional, a rare combination, and we trusted them completely with out photographic memories. They never made things awkward or weird when we were posing, the poses never felt stiff or forced and we laughed our way through most of them. We would recommend them to anyone and everyone and hope that everyone's experience with them is as wonderful as ours was.

Oh man, I don't even know how to begin writing a review for Ohana Photographers! From the beginning my husband and I knew that our photography was the most important aspect of our wedding and we agonized over who we should hire to shoot our big day. It took approximately 2.5 seconds of looking at Ohana's amazing gallery to know we wanted to meet with them and just a few short minutes into our client meeting we knew they were perfect for us. We were a little hesitant to book without David for our wedding but that was before we knew how awesome April and Kim are!

We went with their complete package, an engagement session with album, wedding day coverage with a couple extra hours and album and a day after session. From the beginning, they went above and beyond to make our photos the best they could be, including being open to all our crazy ideas and suggesting even better ones. They were in constant contact and helped us pick out props, suggesting new ones when they saw links we'd like. They even brought extra props for our engagement session, taking the time to get to know us so that everything would reflect us both individually and together. After looking at our engagement album, several people have remarked that it somehow reflects us perfectly.

David at Ohana was everything that we could have wanted in a photographer for our wedding. We contacted him last minute and he fortunately had an opening. He was timely, had great ideas, was professional yet fun and the pics turned out wonderful. We continually receive great feedback from people - even months after our wedding.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, than Ohana photography is worth a billion - okay, a trillion!!! They are fun, edgy, and artful group to work with and did a wonderful job capturing all parts of our wedding. Definitely, my wife and I will use them again (and again) for future memories/moments.

We absolutely LOVED working w/Ohana Photographers! Like, LOVED-Loved. Why? This is why:

Quality of Service: Excellent. You can preview their work on their website and more (books, canvases, etc) during the client meeting, and honestly, what you see is what you get. You have to like their style in order to be happy. Don't book them only to ask for something different on your wedding day, because not that they can't do it, but because that ain't cool. Personally I loved their style of work which is exactly why I wanted to go with them. And in the end I loved nearly every picture that they took. Can you imagine how difficult it would be for me to pick pictures for an album? OMG, they would end up hating me.

Responsiveness: A++. David and Kim get back to my emails, like, 2 seconds after I sent them. How awesome is that? It's like having a phone conversation without using up your minutes. Plus, I can easily converse w/them this way during work, at work, without my boss knowing, but yet she's right there sitting directly in front of me! Okay!

Professionalism: Yes. This family team is probably one of the coolest photographers you'll ever work with. They're easy-going, easy to talk to, make you feel so comfortable like you've known each other for years, and they still capture amazing work in the process. Not like if you're asking you're friend to take pictures and are goofing off at the same time, and they don't come out w/anything good because they were too busy joking around w/you. They're professional when they have to be and are fun when they don't have to be. Every single one of them are talented, and hilarious! So much fun working with them!

Value for Cost: Of course. They were flexible w/our budget and came up w/a solution w/what we were looking for. Their output was so awesome, now that the wedding is over, we don't mind spending more on their products because it's really THAT good and we feel that they deserve it.

Flexibility: Yes, absolutely yes. As all weddings do, things didn't go as planned or on schedule, but David, Kim, and April had no problem adjusting. Problems or missteps happened here and there (like my stupid false eyelashes coming off during pictures, argh) and they were very understanding when some things took longer than others.

All in all it was a wonderful experience working with them and we do plan on working w/them again in the future for other events, because that's how talented they are, how much we love them, and how much we think they're worth it. :)

OHANA was the best decision we made!!!

I had very high expectations for my engagement and wedding pictures. I knew what I wanted and was not going to settle for anything less. That being said... we booked David and Kim before we even had a venue. We knew that they were perfect for us and we were right.

Not only are they fabulous photographers, they are wonderful people who have endless ideas (and kept us laughing the entire time). They were able to catch sweet moments as well as our goofy ones. They captured us!

I promise that you will be thrilled with the quality and the care they put into their work. David and Kim are awesome people who take even more awesome pictures!!

I could not even begin to say nice enough things about Ohana! While we only used them for our engagement photos, we were so happy with every aspect of our experience. If we were getting married on the west coast, there would be no question who our photographers would have been.

We met David and Kim in downtown San Diego and they immediately made us feel at ease (which was definitely a feat considering I was very nervous about being photographed). They guided us through the whole shoot and the three hours flew by! They were both so creative and even came with some additional props to put into the photos that were specific to the little bios I sent to them earlier that day. We had so much fun!

We got our cd of pictures really quickly and they were AMAZING! There were so many to choose from and they were more unique than any other engagement photos I have ever seen. We have gotten so many compliments on our photos and we couldn't have asked for them to turn out any better.

The only negative thing that I could say about Ohana is that it made our search for a photographer for our ceremony and reception on the east coast impossible - no one can compare! If you have any doubt - trust me, you will not be disappointed with Ohana!

David, Kim and April are three of the most creative, artistic, talented Photographers on the planet! We happened upon their site by a huge stroke of luck, and we have been blown away by every aspect of Ohana Photographers! They are incredibly personable and very professional. They were able to catch so many moments during our wedding that we would have missed without ever drawing attention to themselves or taking away from what was happening. They have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. The pictures that we received are beyond anything that we ever could have expected. They took the time to get to know us as a couple an were able to catch many moments that were significant to us that otherwise would have been overlooked. Words don't do justice to the beautiful work that they produce. If you haven't yet, be sure to drop by their site and check out the pictures!

When you consider the different vendors you need for your wedding, you may or may not realize that your photographer(s) are one of the most important - if not THE most important of them all. Days, weeks, and YEARS after your big day, people may not remember what you wore, how the food tasted, where you were married, etc - a good photographer can remind them of these things. However, a GREAT photographer will go above and beyond this, and allow not only you to RELIVE these moments, they will allow those who weren't even there to live them with you. Old friends & relatives who couldn't make it, new friends who were never there... even your children and your descendants down the line. A GREAT photographer will make it possible because they were able to catch the "moments" - much more than the simple photos your uncle could have taken. Ohana Photographers will literally capture time for you. With Ohana Photographers, you not only get one photographer - you not only get a team of photographers - you get a FAMILY of photographers. That's what "Ohana" means. That's what Ohana is. They are not the GREAT photographers that everyone wants, as I mentioned above... they are PHENOMENAL photographers that everyone NEEDS. When I say that they know what they're doing, it doesn't mean they know about cameras, or equipment, or lighting, or angles... because they do - but that's elementary for them. That's not why you want them - you can pay good money for that many places. What they "know" is people. What they "know" is family. What they "know" is how to capture you, your friends, your family, and all the things you're all about on your big day. They know how to capture all the precious moments of your wedding others would miss. They will make every effort to get to know you. They will ask you about yourself and even send you a little survey to fill out. DO IT. This is part of the process - this is how they get ideas and inspiration to shoot you. They will put you at ease and they will make sure you are comfortable. They will work with you and do almost anything you want to do - and they'll make you look good doing it. I'm not going to say much about their quality - if you're here reading about them, then you've likely seen their work and know what you're getting. If you haven't, get over to their blog and take a look. Oh, and I suggest having a seat and grabbing some tape. The seat, because you're going to be there for awhile looking at all the masterpieces - think about it... you don't run in and out of a museum. The tape is to put over your mouth - it'll serve double duty: 1) keep you from blurting out expletives of amazement (I'm serious, I STILL do this) and 2) it will help keep your chin off the floor because your jaws are going to drop. Want to know what you're going to get, go take a look - I don't need to convince you. They are professional, but they are laid back. They know how to have fun, and they do - make sure you have fun, too. THAT is important because no one wants those stone cold emotionless statue portraits. No one wants to see photos of people who don't want to be photographed because they're grumpy or dead serious. If you do, please look elsewhere. That's not what you're getting with Ohana. If you want Ohana, and they choose to work with you (trust me, it's a privilege), then you're going to have amazing photos that make people smile or laugh. The subjects are only part of that - the photographers who know how to have fun know how to find it and capture it. That's what you get from Ohana. I could go on and on, but I won't. I think you get the picture (<-- pun intended) from what I've said so far. We not only got to work with them on our wedding day, but the full day after - I cannot tell you how amazing they were. Beyond being professionals, they are caring, sincere, patient, and REAL people. As a testament to this, I can tell you that multiple guests from my wedding told us for months after our wedding how much they loved our photographers. When I said "yeah, isn't their work amazing?", they clarified that it wasn't just their photos they were talking about, but them as people. It was evident to everyone at the wedding - and they remembered it. So much so that within a year two of our guests chose them for their own wedding. So we got to see and spend time with them again. All the things I said above? They became more solidified once I was on the sidelines and got to watch more closely as Ohana worked and interacted with people, and they all fell in love with them, again. Should you consider Ohana Photographers for your wedding? Sure, if you care about your wedding day. Seriously - I mean that. If you actually want to get married - if you're actually excited about it & if you want everyone to remember it... if you consider it one of the most important days of your life, then Yes - you need them there.

No recommendation can do justice to the work done by David + Kim. They are true professionals but most importantly artists. I typically cannot stand to have my photo taken but Dave + Kim were able to capture the magical moments of our wedding while at the same time making me + Jeff look absolutely fabulous. They both always went above and beyond and couldn't have given more of their hearts, souls and talents to us. Dave + Kim are such sweet people and their personality and love of what they do truly comes out in their work. In addition to being supremely fantastic photographers they are just simply good, amazing people. Thank you thank you for being part of our special day and capturing it in your amazing way. I truly wish I could get married again just to be able to work with David + Kim again.

Our wedding photos were truly magazine worthy. They captured the true beauty and fun of the day!
What I love most about Ohana, is they really capture the personalities of the couple. If you look through their pictures you'll see no two photo shoots are the same. They take pictures from new and fun perspectives that really make the event come alive.

I cannot say enough positive comments about Ohana. From our first meeting with them to the day of our wedding ceremony and the night of our reception, Ohana (David, Kim, and April) met our expectations and exceeded them!

I had a feeling deep down inside after Jane and I first met with Ohana that they would be the ones to capture our special moments. And I do not know how to explain it really, I guess all I can say is that it was fate that led us to pair with Ohana.

Very professional, extremely talented, creativity soars, they all have a special eye in finding and capturing poses and using the locations and environments to complete and frame each picture. They can definitely make the average or not-so-good-looking person look like a model in the photographs that they take.

I mean, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then ALL of the pictures that Ohana captured of our engagement sessions and the wedding are worth a billion words! Just take a look at the beautiful photographs that they took of us in Ohana's blog and you'll see what I mean. I can only describe so much, seeing is believing, and after looking at their works of art, you will indeed believe. We did, and we will be more than happy and will not hesitate to recommend Ohana to anybody. We hope to work with them again in the near future, which will hopefully be for new babies!

We got everything and more with sharing our very special day with Ohana. We could not have been any happier. Thanks Ohana, from the bottom of our hearts, for everything!

Mahalo,

Garie, Jane, Giericko & our little angel Jhovani.

i have to say that Ohana PHotographers was my favorite vendor for my wedding. Since day 1 of us booking them they kept us informed with new and creative ideas for our wedding and reception. they also gave us great referrals to other vendors that we booked and were also very happy with. They were a huge help. They were with me ( us ) all day and kept me calm while taking my picture. I was a bit stressed and they really kept me relaxed. My pictures came out better than I imagined and we were all so thrilled with how much we loved them. Our family raved about how they were always polite and helpful whenever they were around. For instance, we almost forgot our bouquets in the getting ready room, but Kim had grabbed them and ran them out to us in the limo. Total lifesaver! She even had mints in her pocket when I needed one. Gotta be fresh for the kiss! This is the kind of phenomenal service they provided me. I would recommend them to any couple getting married. We love OHANA!!!

I LOVE MY WEDDING PICTURES...and my engagement pictures too! We had a really tight budget and even with the bare minimum package they made sure that our experience with them was excellent. We have one of our engagement prints up in our new apartment and friends have said that it looks like art! David and Kim were so much fun and made us so comfortable in front of the camera. They went out of their way to do our engagement session at USC and made our wedding a picture perfect day at MOPA/Balboa Park. Ohana caught who we are perfectly through their lenses!

To say that these photographers were fun, awesome, talented and the best photographers I've ever met would be an understatement.

I worked as a wedding planner for just over 2 years and worked on over 100 different weddings. I had met my fair share of photographers. Nice ones, talented ones, mean ones, and just plain old BLAH ones. When I first met Ohana (as a wedding planner) they blew me away with their professionalism and ease to work with. While being an incredibly FUN group of people they also were SO easy to work with - they asked questions of the venue before arriving and made sure that they were never in the way of the ceremony, food service or any other activities - they were like ninjas! When they sent me photos to use for my portfolio I was BLOWN AWAY!! Holy cow - if you haven't visited their site already to check out their work go do that now... I'll wait.

GREAT STUFF, right?? Well, I also happen to be on their home page. That's me sitting on my husband's shoulders pouring him champagne. Yup, you guessed it... in the 100-200 photographers that I met in wedding planning I chose them. They were by far the best. And they were not the most expensive (which was helpful!)
I don't know how else to convince you.

Our engagement shoot was the MOST FUN DAY OF OUR ENTIRE ENGAGEMENT. Seriously - my husband and I are both really fun people that got together with some really fun photographers and took some REALLY fun photos! They have a great way of making ANYONE gorgeous and making you feel that way in any shoot.

Seriously - Do yourself a favor and at least meet with them and check out their portfolio of photos! You wont be disappointed.

They catered to our every need and made the photography by far the best thing we spent money on for our wedding! The photographers were the nicest people we've ever met, they always put us at ease even when we were stressed with other wedding planning aspects. The quality of the photos was second to none, they captured our love on film (nuf said!!!) and every picture looked like it could have been from a bridal magazine. They take your creative ideas about the wedding photography and expand upon it... you always feel like you are in the drivers seat. When we were with Ohana we realy felt like celebrities and they felt like part of our own Ohana.

Ohana Photographers are just the perfect wedding photographers. The photos on their site and blog speak for themselves. I think aside from the great pictures they take, what sets them apart is how nice, friendly, accommodating and professional they are. Half way through our engagement session photo shoot, we felt as if we're hanging out with our best friends and were having so much fun, while they were shooting so many great pictures.
They also captured so many great moments at our wedding and took such beautiful pictures. They took exactly the style of photos we wanted and asked for and added their own creativity and brilliant ideas to get so many great photos. We are really happy that we chose them as our wedding photographers and we have become big fans of them and their photos and would highly recommend them.

Best photographers ever! They were accommodating, understanding, suggestive, fun, friendly and most of all professional. It's hard to find someone with all the above qualities at once, especially for a once in a lifetime event.

My husband and I are not big picture fans, but Dave and Kim helped us smile and laugh and have a good time during the craziness of a wedding. The engagement and wedding pictures really captured our relationship and personalities.

We and our friends and families were extremely impressed. I strongly recommend Ohana Photographers to anyone and for any event

All I have to say is LOVE them!! I had the most amazing expirience with Ohana, they are awesome. I looked all over for photographers but I did not want anything cheezy posing all over the place with fake smiles.....then I came across Ohana. His work is incredible! I was recomended by a coworker and I will be forever grateful. The negotiation process was easy and flexible. We first did our engagement session and the pictures looked as if they were out of a magazine. I had SO many compliments and everyone wanted to know who took our pictures. Then at our wedding, they were on time, very professional and had a great attitude. They were NOT in our faces nor pushy and we just had a super fun time with them. They stayed until the end of our wedding and took TONS on pictures. My whole family and friends loved Ohana and how great they were with all our guests. I was so HAPPY to see that the pictures that we will have for the rest of our lives of our wedding turned out absolutely amazing!!! I seriously can go on and On about how great they are but if you want pictures that are insanely gorgeous......OHANA!!!!

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!

I can't say enough about Ohana Photographers. I'm usually not very comfortable having to take pictures, but it was my wife's....I mean, our biggest day....and so we went with Ohana based on a friend's recommendation. I have to say, they put me totally at ease. They were also fantastic with our 6-year-old niece who was our flower girl. They had great, fun personalities and seemed to really understand what we wanted to accomplish. They had lots of experience and knew exactly how to get the traditional pictures my wife wanted and they also knew how to capture the more "crazy, fun" type photos I wanted with my groomsmen. We were extremely pleased with the pictures we got back and have gotten numerous compliments on them. Our wedding was pretty big. We had more than 200 people there and we've got great pictures to remember it. We even managed to stay within our budget. I just want to say that we highly recommend Ohana to anyone looking for a professional photographer. They are simply, the best.

David, Kim and April of Ohana Photographers has an ability to take images that simply come alive! I recommend that you visit the website and look at the different effects that they capture! I fell in love with them the first time I visited their website. Their personalities shined through and were even more fun in person!
The emotions that you can draw from the photos is what every one is looking for when remembering personal memories of a special event. The color and depth that the images have are outstanding.

The wedding photos look like they are from an advertising clip. They look like that perfect wedding photo that every bride is looking for. Ohana captures the bride in "Her" moment, her dream day forever preserved.

From a 70th Birthday Party, Family Reunions, Just a Day in the Sun, to a "Newborn with Family" photo shoot Ohana delivers uncompromisable quality every time.

David, Kim and April of Ohana Photographers has an ability to take images that simply come alive! I recommend that you visit the website and look at the different effects that they capture! I fell in love with them the first time I visited their website. Their personalities shined through and were even more fun in person!
The emotions that you can draw from the photos is what every one is looking for when remembering personal memories of a special event. The color and depth that the images have are outstanding.

The wedding photos look like they are from an advertising clip. They look like that perfect wedding photo that every bride is looking for. Ohana captures the bride in "Her" moment, her dream day forever preserved.

From a 70th Birthday Party, Family Reunions, Just a Day in the Sun, to a "Newborn with Family" photo shoot Ohana delivers uncompromisable quality every time.

I cannot say enough about this family business and how happy I was with the results!

Thanks you guys! I'll be calling you for maternity photos! *fingers crossed!* Read less

Ohana Photographers (david, kim and april) want the best picture of you (your family and guests) that they can get. They toil and trouble shoot until they create utter MAGIC that lasts a lifetime. All I can say, "They shoot the most wonderfully beautiful photos that I am so very proud to show my colleagues and friends, and I wouldn't mind a bit if they published them." They are much more than just photographers, they are artists in the highest degree. If you need photos, ABSOLUTELY get Ohana Photographers, they are the best (period.) They worked well with every one of my vendors and felt like part of our family. They're just awesome! We recommend them to anyone for any occasion!

I cannot say anything but WOW! when it comes to Ohana Photographers! They made my wedding day extra special! Everyone involved from Ohana Photographers was kind, professional, fun...down right amazing!!! I couldn't have asked for better photographers. Not only did they accomodate me with my traditional requests, but they came up with some great ideas I would never have thought of. My entire wedding party and all my guests had so much fun participating in all the photos. I have never felt comfortable in front of a camera, but the Ohana Photographers really made me feel at ease and helped me to open up and really show my happiness in the pictures. I look at all my photos now and can't help but smile! I continue to get comments from people at the wedding on what a remarkable job Ohana Photographers did and have had some of my friends who are getting married ask if I'd mind if they used them also. "I wouldn't mind at all! You'll love them!" is how I always reply. If anyone is looking for fantastic photographers who not only give you amazing pictures, but also do whatever they can to make your experience wonderful, Ohana Photographers are the ones for you! Thank you to Ohana Photographers!!!

We absolutely loved our photos and our photographers! The pictures were something that all of our guests were talking about and still do today. The photographers cared about what we wanted and did their best to do just that. I felt like they really cared about the quality of our photos just as much as we did. I would definitely recommend them without a doubt!

They work well with different styles from fun beachy pictures to vogue wedding portraits. When I saw the pictures that were taken for my engagement and wedding I knew I had made the right choice by using SD Ohana!

Photographers were creative but listened to us and added their professional interpretations of our wants. They allowed us to be playful in all aspects of our photos. If you are looking for flexible, prefessional, and responsive photographers, my wife and I highly recommend them. Our time with them made them feel like part of our family, not just the wedding.
