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. 

Get to know me better here.

I am a big big advocate for strong and healthy marriages, and absolutely love the excitement of weddings. Being married is seriously one of the biggest blessings ever, and I love getting to be there for couples, and documenting the beginning of theirs!

Amazing locations + couples in love + adventure is my photography love language and makes my heart SING. If you are honeymooning, celebrating an anniversary, road tripping and just want a session documenting the epicness of your trip, or just celebrating LOVE for LOVE come at me. Lets face it- you are (and should be!!!) picky about who you partner up with, and you found your amazing person!!! So let’s go celebrate.

“Emily is hands down the best photographer to work with! She did my engagement shoot, family photos, and wedding photos, and all of them turned out more amazing than I could have imagined.”
