I'm based on Oahu, and available to serve all of the Hawaiian Islands. I'm also available for commissions on the mainland, or anywhere around the world! My passport is always ready and I'm well accustomed to fitting copious amounts of camera gear in even the smallest of overhead bins.

Reach out through the contact form above! After we've chatted (via email, phone, or video) to ensure I'm the perfect fit, booking is easy! I ask for a retainer and a signed contract, both of which can be done securely online.

01. we love your work! how do we book?

As soon as you know your dates! Weddings and elopements can book months in advance. Portrait sessions too! Since you'll likely be in Hawaii for a very limited time, let's get your session on the calendar! Booking last minute? I may still have openings, so reach out to inquire.

02. how far in advance should we book?

All of my clients receive a comprehensive location guide detailing my favorite spots to shoot on the island! Still not sure? During the planning process I ask you to fill out a questionnaire and with that information I can make recommendations based on your vision for your photos and where you're staying.

03. where should we do our photos?

For weddings and elopements, I work closely with you to help plan a perfect timeline for your day. For portrait sessions, I always suggest shooting at sunrise or sunset for ideal lighting conditions. Not sure if sunrise or sunset would be best for you? Read this blog post.

04. when should we do our photos?

YES! Though I'm based on Oahu (the most populated island in Hawaii with Waikiki and Honolulu), I island hop frequently and am familiar with all the islands. Check out this page for more info! I'm also available for weddings and sessions in my home state of Minnesota. I travel there frequently (which means no travel fees for you!) and book 5 weddings per year in Minnesota/Wisconsin.

I'm also available for travel worldwide. Contact me for more information.

05. do you travel to other islands? to the mainland?

My most frequently asked question! Visiting my home island of Oahu? Click here. Headed to the garden isle of Kauai (my fav!), click here. Check out my Maui trip planning guide here. And last, but definitely not least, click here to learn about the Big Island.
