here’s some answers for ya
Can you describe your style?
I love to capture real movement, emotion, and dynamics! Expect a ton of movement on your session, and to get a little goofy. Please dress comfortably!
What I and/or significant other is really awkward in front of the camera?
Ohhh my goodness, no worries at all!! 99% of people (my husband and myself included!!) aren’t used to being in front of the camera, and it is my job to make sure you are comfortable and feeling great throughout our session. I GOT CHU. Just come ready to enjoy and have fun, and not take yourselves too seriously, and we will get some amazing shots!
What images will I receive in my gallery? Do you release RAW (unedited) files?
All of the images I deliver are hand selected and edited by me, and I don’t release any unedited files. I have heard the analogy about going to a restaurant, and asking the chef for a raw chicken and vegetables- which, of course, defeats the purpose of going to a restaurant! I hope that you are booking me because you have seen and enjoy/trust my work!
do you travel?
I do!! The outer islands are a quick and easy hop from Oahu. Travel fees will apply, unless I am already planning a trip to that location. Please reach out for details on your date/location!
we are visiting oahu and have no idea where to have no idea where to have our session? Also, wardrobe- - halp!
All of my packages include location AND styling guides, and I am available for further consultation if you would like more help choosing. Locations- Hawaii is amazingly gorgeous and has so much versatility! Flip through my social media accounts and website to help give you a feel for different locations I shoot in, and we can talk more about options once you are booked! Wardrobe- take a peek at my style guide once you are booked, and I've had many clients send over pictures of different options if they aren't sure!
what time of day do you shoot and how long are your sessions?
I love to shoot outdoors, and typically shoot in the golden hour, about 45-60 minutes before sunset. Sessions are typically between 40-60 minutes for a couple's or family shoot, and elopements and weddings of course all vary!
Are we a good fit?
YES, if you love the raw/imperfect/movement/adventure types of photography! I try to capture you exactly as you are, so that you can remember little details about whatever stage you are in. The majority of my sessions are outdoors, hence expect to get a little dirty/sandy/windblown on our shoot which will make for really fun and playful images!
I am ready to book! How do I get started?
