Showing everyday women how breathtakingly beautiful they really are is our passion! Alluring, gorgeous, beautiful and creative are just some of the words to describe our wedding, boudoir and portrait photography. We blend together the perfect amount of story-telling, details, candid and editorial posed images to create a look that honestly reflects the beauty of your day, your soul and spirit. In addition to our award-winning photography in San Diego and Hawaii, we also provide full service destination wedding packages on Oahu, HI for those that are seeking simple elopements with amazing imagery.

Our ultimate goal is not simply to create great images, but to serve and bless everyone we work with through a fun and genuinely heartfelt experience that will change the way you see yourself in a positive way. With over a thousand weddings served, more than 35 weddings & photography awards to our credit and having appeared on TV and prints around the world we know how to make, not only brides, but all woman look and feel beautiful both inside and out.

We accept a limited number of weddings each year so that we are able to give each couple the care and creative energy that they deserve. We also have a full studio in San Diego dedicated to beauty portraits and boudoir as well as do marathon runs in Hawaii. Our goal is to focus on quality, not quantity that is why we limit ourselves to just 20 photo shoots per month and limit the number of weddings we accept.

I had my wedding on September 25th, 2013 at Paradise Cove with the help from the Romance Specialists. They were awesome! Dawn was really helpful and I liked how she was on top of her game. Dawn is also very organized, calm, funny and most of all patient. She is also very easy to work with.

It was also very nice to have Janice, my on-site wedding coordinator. She made sure the ceremony started on time which was great!

Overall, the big day went smoothly. Much thanks to Dawn and the Romance Specialists

I would recommend this company to every bride. They were amazing! We live in Las Vegas NV and decided we wanted to get married in Hawaii. Destination wedding.. Where to start right? I was so easy. We had a few phone conversations to discuss what I wanted. Dawn and Janice made it happen. So simple, so easy, and so perfect. If your looking for a great destination wedding use the Theromancespeialist.com you will not be sorry. Jeff and Emily Dages 4/13/13

I found Dawn through reviews on wedding wire and I must say she did not disappoint! When we first started to explore planning our wedding with the Romance Specialists the website was very informative, the packages offered a lot of flexibility with options to customize, and the images / video was reflective of the quality of the work we received:) I spoke with Dawn on the phone a number of times and she was accessible, professional, flexible, and super funny!! Once we got to Hawaii meeting with Janice the wedding coordinator on site, speaking with Pastor Joffery on the phone, and then meeting with Dawn was all very easy and helped to ease my mind as they were all so friendly and willing to add the personal touches we wanted to our wedding.
The day of the wedding went pretty seemlessly - our only issue was that the weather turned on the North Shore where we were to be married but Dawn was great - she kept us calm, offered other options and in the end Pastor Joffery was onsite and assured us the weather was great and no changes were needed in location - Wheew! We were married at Papa'iloa and the location was breath taking and offered a lot of diversity for our photos. Pastor Joffery was amazing and the ceremony he gave was the perfect fit for who we are as a couple. Our photographers offered a wide array of photos - there were so many great shots to choose from we added images to our album and bought the disc! We will forever be grateful to Dawn and her team for giving us our dream wedding barefoot on the beach and would not change anything. Our flowers were gorgeous, the music provided by Sean at the ceremony set the perfect mood, Pastor Joffery was warm and humourous, our photo / video services by Dawn, Keoki, Karis and Priceton were everthing we could have dreamt of and more;) I would recommend the Romance Specialists without question - Dawn truly is the First Lady of Romance and her moto "Fly to Hawaii and Get Married" truly is what happens.

We planned our Hawaiian wedding this past November with The Romance Specialists and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! The entire process, from planning to the actual wedding day, was smooth and practically effortless because of Dawn and her team. Our seemingly endless questions were answered promptly and thoughtfully and we were able to work with them to customize the ceremony to fit our needs and wishes. Communication was excellent, and we received emails and calls leading up to our wedding day with reminders and last minute arrangements.

The day of our wedding we met Jofrey our officiant, Karis, our photographer and Sean, our ukulele player. They immediately made us feel comfortable and at ease. All three were so friendly, but also professional, and truly set the tone and helped to make our wedding day so memorable. We are especially happy with our wedding pictures, which are amazing, and look like something out of a fairytale!

Our simple beach wedding was perfect and stress-free, and we highly recommend The Romance Specialists to other couples!

If you are planning a destination wedding The Romance Specialists are the way to go! I started planning my wedding a year ago and worked with Dawn over the last year. She was always so fast to respond to my emails and calls. She is very organized and really cares about her brides. She was always so kind to me and made sure that she understood every detail I wanted so my big day was perfect...and it was!!!! We had so much fun and it was so full of love and laughter. Janice and Kathy were our on site coordinators and they are amazing! Janice was on top of everything for me that day and thought of everything. I was told that as the guests cried during the ceremony she was handing out tissues (even as she was tearing up herself). I enjoyed having them at my wedding and couldn't have done it without them!
I also want to thank Dawn because they found out I was going to try and make my own bouquet and she ordered me one last minute. It was a perfect wedding day gift!
I'm so happy with The Romance Specialists and highly recommend them!

We used The Romance Specialists for our wedding, and we definitely recommend them. In particular, we appreciated their professionalism and prompt communication. We chose to have the wedding at Waimanalo Bay. The location was gorgeous, and not too busy even though it was a weekend. The minister was excellent, the ceremony was very touching, and the photos look amazing.
