Toby Hoogs Photography is based in Kailua-Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii, and has been voted the Best Photographer in West Hawaii for the last seven years in a row! Toby has over 20 years of experience as a photographer and during his career, he has had the privilege of photographing more than 1,800 weddings!

Toby and his wife of 11 years, Renee, specialize in high-end weddings, portraits, and lifestyle photography, all with an emphasis on outdoor settings and the natural beauty of the islands. Toby Hoogs Photography also provides videography and a full complement of related services.

Toby was born and raised in Kailua-Kona. Developing a natural aptitude from an early age, he shot his first wedding at just 17. He then studied photography in New York City, before returning to the islands in 1992 to continue building his photography business.

Toby uses the most advance and state-of-the-art-equipment. Combining a vast and diverse array of experience, with an organic flair for capturing sponteneous instances as they transpire, Toby brings a refined, yet comfortable, photojournalistic approach to each project.The consensus from Toby's many clients is that his laid back, friendly, and unobtrusive personality relaxes his subjects, so that the energy of the present flows with ease. The magical moments that unfold are thus real, not contrived, and are recorded as they truly happen.

Toby's creative skill produces memorable photos tailored to the style of every event, and each couple's unique vision and personality.

Although based on the Big Island of Hawaii, Toby regularly shoots weddings on the other islands, the mainland United States, and has traveled to Australia, Central America, and Africa. His past editorial and commercial clients include: The New York Times, National Geographic, The Food Network, The Outdoor Channel, Martha Steward Magazine, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine, Pacific Weddings Magazine, etc.

Toby Hoogs was very professional and personable the entire experience. He honestly did more for our wedding then being just a videographer and photographer. He helped plan the set up and location planning since we had no idea of where we should go, being that this was our first trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. I would STRONGLY recommend Toby and his team to help with your wedding. Our photos came out flawless. Toby helped us to get in the perfect poses, captured our emotions and made us feel at ease. Toby met us at our hotel, took photos there and followed us to our wedding site. The day was perfect and Toby helped to make it this way. Our photos came out perfect and the flash drive that Toby sends your pictures on has a very unique and creative touch.

We found Toby by searching on line when we started planning our wedding. When we also finalized our wedding planner, she raved about Toby so we knew we were on the right track. We ended up meeting Toby to shoot our engagement photos and we knew we made the right choice. He is an incredibly talented photographer and such an easy going guy. Our engagement and wedding photos was such a blast - he made everything flawless. Recently we received the link to view our photos and we cant wait to get a hold of our album and they are truly amazing. Toby, words cant describe how thankful we are for making everything possible for us. We will cherish these photos forever! Remember what we told you in Hawaii, you guys are welcome to visit us any time! It may be Peru now...but who knows where we end up next :)

I recently got married on the 16th of June in Hawaii and used Toby at the recommendation of the Four Seasons. My husband does photography for the movie industry and was in charge of picking our photographer. Pictures were incredibly important to us so we could look back and remember our wedding. Based on the framing, lighting, and creativity he saw in Toby's pictures we selected him. We were blown away by how awesome he and his wife were on our wedding day. Toby was extremely professional and did a great job at coaching two nervous about to be married people into smiling and "relaxing" for the camera. He periodically let us review the pictures he took to ensure we saw things we were happy with so we could adjust if necessary. Shortly after the wedding we had proofs in hand. We only had him for about 2.5hrs which in hind sight, I should have added more time. But he got every picture we wanted. His wife was great at helping me throughout the wedding as well. I can't say enough good things about Toby and his crew. We are incredibly happy with our pictures! Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Our videographer was Todd and he and his assistant did a great job! They were on time, friendly, and professional. We ordered a full length video and short version. We are so glad we did the short version! It's totally worth it - you'll watch the full length wedding video only a handful of times (if that!) and friends/family want to see something shorter. They did a great job - very beautiful video. They used modern equipment (all digital) and spliced in sound perfectly. Would definitely recommend!

I can't say enough about Toby to describe what a wonderful person and photographer he is! Toby is in one word, amazing! He captured the true spirit of our wedding on film. His style and personality made even the shyest of the group feel comfortable. When I first called Toby, I was worried about the time taking pictures would take and how that might possibly take away from the flow of the reception or our time with our friends and family. But, Toby even helped me figure out how and when to do things to make sure that didn't happen. My husband and I truly enjoyed all the little special moments that he helped to create. I waited in anticipation for our photos to arrive; when they did, I couldn't have been happier. I put the disk in the computer, put it on slide show, and giggled and oohed and ahhed for two hours as I watched and remembered our wedding day. So many of the pictures were just a delightful surprise and I wondered how in the world he had gotten that angle or where he was when he got this shot or that; he seemed to be everywhere at once and they were all so gorgeous! Toby made the memory of our wedding come alive and we will cherish our pictures always! I cannot recommend Toby Hoogs highly enough; as I said before, he is just amazing! If you are planning a wedding in Hawaii and you can't get him, change the date so that you can!
