My husband and I live in the Bay Area in California. We decided to have a destination wedding in Kapolei, Hawaii. As much as we searched all over the internet for a good photographer, we found L'Amour Photography though my cousin who was mutual friends with Eric and Wendy. We were in love with my cousin's engagement photos taken by L'Amour Photography and decided to look them up on the internet. Behold we found our photographers! We loved the quality and magnificent views of all their photos. L'Amour Photography is the best photographer that we are so glad to have chosen for our wedding. Eric and Wendy are absolutely a lovely couple who have been so fun and wonderful to work with. From the first time we met Eric for our engagement photos he was already outgoing, comical, and with such a talent as a photographer. Eric has made our experience so much fun and memorable. On our wedding day he made our day enjoyable and also kept up with time and coordination. Pictures were constantly taken from every detail of the wedding to the joy and fun our guests were having till the end of the night. It was awesome! The memorable photos were especially the candid moments. They are open to hearing what you want for your wedding and will carry it through above and beyond what you expected it to be.
We would HIGHLY recommend L'Amour Photography for all couples out there about to get hitched. They are truly an awesome, fun, and also professional and outstanding photographers that you won't regret having! Mahalo to Eric, Wendy and the staff of L'Amour Photography! You've captured a lifetime of memories for us. THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

I just used Eric for my 6/29 wedding and am BEYOND HAPPY!
I met Eric about 10 months before my wedding on a scouting trip to Oahu and I knew then i would like working with him. He was fun and easygoing and the photos he showed me were amazing. Well, the pics he took at our wedding were amazing too!
We actually used Eric for our Welcome Dinner, Wedding and a post-shoot "trash the dress" shoot (which was sooo great!). Within 4 days of our wedding we had a link with a sample of the photos and a day or so after that we had low res copies to post on FB for all our friends and family to see, who couldn't come to the wedding. That was amazing to get those so quickly.
And what can I say about the photos? AMAZING!!! I am so happy at what I have seen. Eric and his colleague John are so talented. I gave them a VERY detailed list of photos I wanted and they got them! They were beautiful and creative and just stunning. He even got us in the water, swimming with turtles.
Picking Eric as my destination wedding photographer was one of the best choices I could have made in my wedding planning. He really captured the day and all the events and was just fantastic! I found his rates to be reasonable too - actually now that I see my photos - i think I got a deal! :-)
I highly recommend L'amour Photography for your wedding. Entire staff were awesome to work with! The pictures were amazing and i cant wait to see more. I was worried about planning a destination wedding, but the staff were great, really trusting, and i had had nothing to worry about. I liked that their prices were on the their website. They take beautiful pictures, and im totally happy that i booked them for my wedding! Thank you to everyone at L'amour =)
The best vendor in my wedding. Me and my bridal entourage enjoyed every moment with them! They are so professional and yet soooo funny. The pictures that they took are priceless. Something I would be proud to show my great-grandchildren.
We wanted a destination wedding, even if it meant just the two of us on the beach. Our goal was to have an easy going and relaxed wedding so we could enjoy it with out worrying about the millions of details that could and most likely go wrong. With a destination wedding comes with relying on kind and honest, complete strangers from the internet. Our relationship with l'amoure photography began with surfing the internet and sorting through pretty much every photography company in Hawaii. When we came across l'amoure's website, we fell in love right away and where relieved to have finally found what exceeded our expectations.
Making arrangements through e-mail and over the phone was nerve racking to say the least, we have never met any of the people we dealt with and had to rely on articles like this one to make decisions on who we would go with. When dealing with people from hawaii we had to realize that the lifestyle of the professional people there was very laid back and relaxed which is the exact opposite of how we where feeling with trying to plan a wedding over the phone with people we had never met.
Once we arrived in Honolulu we met with Eric from l'amoure and with in seconds of meeting Eric we felt completely relieved and had full confidence in who we chose to capture our perfect day.
Just the beauty of hawaii would make any wedding perfect but working with Eric has raised the bar for perfection and professionalism. The way Eric and his partner worked together to capture our day and work with constant weather and location changes made all of our family and friends stop and watch in amazement as our two photographers operated in what seemed like a choreographed performance. To this day when ever I talk to some family members they still mention how impressed they where with Eric. Not only the photography but the way he interacted with our family and friends, he kept the whole mood of the day upbeat and fun for everyone.
We cant say enough about our experience with l'amoure, most people look back at their wedding and say "never again" but we often say we want to get married over again every year because of how well it went and how much fun we had. Our wedding was beyond what we had dreamed about and allot of that was due to Eric.
Thank you for everything,
Booking L'Amour Photography was, hands down, the BEST DECISION I made for my wedding day. Planning a wedding from California was a daunting process, but Eric went above and beyond to make it enjoyable and stress-free at every step of the way.
After looking at the photo galleries on their website and Facebook pages, I could immediately see that the quality and artistry of L'Amour Photography's work far exceeded anything I could ever dream of. To my surprise, Eric's talent was equally matched by his dynamic personality. From the first email to the in-person consult to the wedding day itself, he was highly involved, respectful of my decisions, and willing to collaborate in a number of areas. He voluntarily provided suggestions for other vendors (e.g., hair/makeup, DJ), who I ultimately booked, and also helped make my wedding fun and fabulous!
As soon as Eric and John arrived at the hotel to begin shooting on my wedding day, they immediately put everyone at ease and created a positive space that brought out the best in each of us. L'Amour Photography also set up a photo area during the reception, complete with props, an iPad where you could see the pictures immediately after they were taken, and customized photos for the guests to have as keepsakes. The photo station was easily the hit of the reception and our guests are still talking about how much fun they had, even weeks later!
As if the team's incredible photography skills weren't enough, thanks to Wendy's professionalism, our online photo gallery was up and running two days after the wedding! She immediately contacted me to let me know that she had posted the first set of pictures and emailed me the digital prints. All of my friends and coworkers who have seen them can't stop raving about how phenomenal the pictures turned out!
Eric and his team at L'Amour Photography were definitely worth every penny - thanks to them, my wedding was absolutely perfect and now I can relive that special day through their beautiful photographs!
Fantastic. The photos all turned out amazing and Eric was able to get my photos back to me within a few days so I had them before I left the island. Everyone who's seen our photos has raved about how great they are.
Eric and Wendy did such a great job. Our pictures turn out better than expected, and I had high expectations. It is even better than the portfolio pictures that we have seen on their website. It took us almost half a year to find them. Both of us are pretty picky when it comes to photographers. We picked them because their portfolio pictures are not all cookie-cutter like. They are very capable of diverse styles, and able to capture different personalities. When we showed our guests the pictures online, they said the pictures made the wedding look even better than what they remembered. They said that every single picture was a postcard material.
Not only were our pictures great, they also made every single step of the process such a pleasure for us. Starting from the very beginning, from my first contact with Eric, he was very prompt with email replies, something that you don’t always find in Hawaiian photographers. He is also very good with phone calls, in case, I didn’t get a hold of him; he always calls me back the same day. Communication was so great it put some of our other vendors to shame. They are also extremely accommodating. We had couple special requests due to our special traveling circumstance and they were totally obliging.
During the wedding, they were very easy-going, considerate, fun, dedicated, and just great to work with. They are very non-intrusive to the wedding. They also kept an eye on the time when our wedding coordinator was busy dealing with the cater. We really appreciated that. They were able to capture all the special moments without us having to do pose for them, or do anything over. They are also very great at capturing emotions. My mom never smiled for pictures, but they were able to capture her dancing with my step-dad smiling. This is so rare and wonderful. Everybody loved them. During the trash the dress, we forgot to bring a towel, and Eric let us used his towel while he just shake off the water on him. So sweet.
All in all, they did such a great job I wanted to recommend them to everyone. It took me half a year to find them, and I hope I would help other brides find them easier.
Wendy and Eric were great! We would recommend L'Amour to anyone who is getting married in Hawaii. If you're a bit apprehensive because of their prices just know that you are paying for quality. I sound like I work for them the way that I'm promoting them, but they really were great to work with. Aside from excellent photography (which you have to see http://www.lmprophoto.com/gallery.htm) they were excellent at managing our time on the wedding day. We sat down with them and had coffee the day before the wedding and gave them our time line and they pretty much stuck to that. Wendy will work with the Bride and Eric with the groom and they are always communicating with each other via radio so that everyone can get where they need to be on time. This was great since we didn't want to see each other until the time of the wedding. We invited them to our reception and they even took photos for us there, which we hadn't even asked them to do. Very fun people to work with and you'll end up with great group photos, portraits and creative shots that will help you remember your special day forever.
to start wendy and eric are fabulous... they are very fun and kind and no when to be unscene..... they were amazing and i would recomen their amazing photography for any ocassion you have coming up. please check their website or on fb. lmprophoto.com their work speaks for itself for sure...
