Fun. Fresh. Modern. Style
I skillfully combine photo-journalism, fine art, and contemporary portraiture to help you remember the story of your wedding day as you want to remember it: one filled with love, family, and friends.


History

I photographed my first wedding in 1999 and have never looked back. I love to watch the excitement and joy of each and every bride and groom. I've been in business for 15 years and hold a degree in fine art photography.
Philosophy
I'm a good listener. A key element in planning for a successful wedding photography experience. I learn what your needs are and use my experience, technical skill, and artistic abilities to be sure you get exactly what you want. If there is something that you do not see on my website, please ask. I am more than happy to be flexible in meeting your requests or designing a custom package to fit your specific requirements. LETS HAVE FUN!

Please call me at 808.492.2991 to set up a consultation.
Available for services on Kauai, as well as, all of the Hawaiian islands, Portland, Seattle, and Mexico. Read less

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Negatives, Prints
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
I photograph your images digitally and this leaves many possibilities for the use of color, black and white, and special techniques with the use of Photoshop and Lightroom. Black and white images can boldly capture the mood and emotion of a special moment. Color images can impress upon your memory your flowers, your dress, your cake and all the details of the joy and happiness of your special day. Hand-coloring or other special techniques can make one or more images stand out and can be framed as a beautiful piece of art.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have photographed in all types of lighting situations. Low-light. Bright sunlight. Mixed lighting. I know my equipment. I don't rely on post production to 'fix' everything. I get it right from the beginning.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I have used film for over 30+ years. I have photographed digitally for the past 11 years. I am comfortable and proficient with both.
How many photographers do you work with?
I photograph alone but if you would like a second photographer for your wedding, I have some very talented and dependable resources from which to choose from at an additional cost.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. I have a contract that guarantees that I will be at your event. I also work with a small group of other photographers that would be able to fill in for me if a disaster were to strike. I have not missed an event during the 14 years I have been photographing weddings. I will be there and give you my best.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I put all my energy into each event I photograph, so I have chosen to only book one wedding per day. However, I will occasionally photograph one wedding on both a Saturday and Sunday.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes. Although I am devoted to being "your" photographer, I do have a select few photographers that I can call on if disaster were to strike.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I bring Nikon professional camera, flash, batteries, and lenses. Plus lint brushes. Sewing kit. Safety pins. I am a girl scout: I am always prepared.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. I have a back-up camera, flash equipment, batteries, and lenses. I try to be prepared for everything. I always tune up my equipment at least twice a year so I know that everything will be in good working order.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Depending upon the needs of my client. I am flexible and I am willing to work with you based upon your particular circumstances. Just as each couple is unique, each wedding is unique. If you don't see it, please ask.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I will charge by the hour or half hour depending upon the situation as it arises. $150/per half hour.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I usually like to take a break when everyone is eating during the reception. If its an all day wedding I do like to take a meal break. I always let the bride and groom know if I need to step out for a couple of minutes.
Do you charge for travel?
I will travel to all of the Hawaiian islands. Costs are not included.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Your edited wedding photographs are usually online for you to view anywhere from 3-4 weeks depending on the season.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
You and your wedding guests may view your photos online in a password protected area of my website. At your wedding I provide a card that contains my website address, password, and username so that all of your family and guests have the opportunity to view your images. This really works well for family or friends that live in other areas.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Your images will be available for online viewing for 6 months.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
I do include a select number of carefully edited prints on a jump drive as part of my basic package. You may purchase prints and other products from my online ordering system.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes unless the bride and groom need privacy considerations. I will issue limited publishing rights to the bride and groom but I will retain the original copyright.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes I have a password protected area on my website that provides the opportunity for you, family, and friends to view your images.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I work with a variety of vendors. I design the book myself with input from the bride and groom. We will discuss what options are available on a case by case basis.
When will the client get the final album?
The final book will be ready on a case by case basis depending on its complexity, how many pages, and how many images are included. There is design time. I send you a proof of the book for your approval, and then there is time needed for final preparation and printing.
