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.

Chances are, you want to be seen + documented in a real way. I’m here to create that for you.

You’re looking for:

  • Nothing pre fabricated
  • No list of standard prompts
  • No stress

In a world full of instant gratification, distraction, and mass production, I want to invite you into a space that we can slow down together, be inspired on location, and create something really special + meaningful.


I would love to collaborate and capture you in a way that will allow you to experience both-“Wait, wha?? Is that us??!” And at that same time- “Aw!! This is totally us.”

I offer an elevated, inclusive experience–every one of my packages comes with:

  • Custom location recommendations;
  • Curated vendor list;
  • Styling expertise, based on location, weather, lighting, and photographic quality;
  • Posing prompts, ensuring you and your partner never feel awkward in front of the camera;
  • Variety of shots, from sweet and romantic, to silly and joyous. 

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

Get to know me better here.

She listens to your ideas and brings your vision to life. She also edits her photos meticulously without sacrificing quality or authenticity!”

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.”
