Hawaii based couples, elopement and micro wedding photographer for couples wanting an intimate and honest experience.

Hello and welcome

I’m Emily! An Oahu, Hawaii based couples + elopement photographer.

Congratulations!! You’ve found your person. Its not always easy or guaranteed, and you need to celebrate your way! It’s a huge thing.

Your wedding day will be your anniversary for the rest of your lives. Some questions you should ask yourselves when in the beginning stages of planning your celebration is-

  • How do I want the day to feel?
    How do I want to feel?
  • What do I want to experience?
  • What parts will stand out to us 50 years from now, and what pieces won’t be important?

Elopements and micro weddings are a beautiful and seamless way to remove all the noise and distractions and stress and extras that come with the larger traditional weddings. 

Everything that isn’t important is stripped away, so that the things that really matter can shine. The distractions are taken out.

You feel safe, and seen, and valued on your wedding day. 

You and your partner. 

Maybe a small group of people closest to you. 

And an environment you both love. 

The memories that you will create together in the space will be focused and filled-you’ll be able to really soak in the celebration of what you and your partner are doing-not distracted by wedding day chaos and details.

Every bit of your day is done intentionally. 

Do we sound like a match? Get in touch! I cannot wait to meet you.

You want a stress free + meaningful  experience for your wedding day, and I want to help curate that for you.

The memories that you will create together in the space will be focused and filled-you’ll be able to really soak in the celebration of what you and your partner are doing-not distracted by wedding day chaos and details. Every bit of your day is done intentionally. Being married is seriously one of the biggest blessings ever, and I’d love to celebrate and document the beginning of yours.

Let’s go somewhere beautiful together and explore and document your love. We’ll collaborate and design up something perfectly unique to you!

Lets face it- you are (and should be!!) picky about who you partner up with, and you found your amazing person. Let’s go celebrate-whether that’s a just because session, engagement session, anniversary, or documenting your trip and season together.

Having taken professional photos once before, we were familiar (and not too happy) with photos that made us look “posed” and stiff, so we really wanted more natural photos that felt more like us. When we came across Emily’s gallery and photography, we immediately fell in love. Her photography captured couples so naturally with breathtaking scenery as the backdrop. Emily somehow figured out how to bottle up a beautiful memory and a feeling of happiness. That is what she gives you, and frankly, it is priceless.” Alexis + Freddy
