I love traveling with my couples to capture their love wherever it may take them, including the Big Island. I’ve got a few reasons to bring an elopement photographer from home, (that’s me!).

We Love the Adventure As Much As You Do!

First, being a Big Island elopement photographer and elopement photographer in general – I live for the adventure. I love to travel and if you choose a Big Island elopement, I’m your gal!

I Specialize in Elopements As an Elopement Photographer

Next, as an elopement photographer I specialize in this kind of event! Not only have most of my couples chosen elopements, I’ve taken the time to truly hone in on the meaning of an elopement. From the epic adventures and romantic love stories – being an elopement photographer is more than just taking pictures. It’s being alongside your couples for once in a lifetime journeys together. This also means that I know how to location scout from afar and are very good at finding new and exciting spots. We’ll also be just as excited to explore as you are! It’s also a pro to hire someone from somewhere else because I know how to navigate the permitting process as well as practicing Leave No Trace. Places as beautiful as Hawaii deserve to be treated with the utmost respect and practicing Leave No Trace best practices is a great way to do that!

You’re Both Already Comfortable With Me!

Since we’ll be working together during the planning process, and potentially during an engagement session, you don’t have to worry about getting along with someone new. We’ll have discussed your vision, your story and ultimately your dream Big Island elopement. As an elopement photographer this will be something that I can help guide you both through. Whether we’re location scouting, crafting the perfect timeline, or just planning fun activities. I’m here to make the planning that much simpler, and with the relationship already built you can trust I know you and your vision through and through.

Lastly, as a Big Island elopement photographer you can trust that I know all the best things to do while on the island. I’ve taken the time to location scout, and investigate all the incredible offerings the Big Island has, so I can simplify things for you. If you’ve chosen an elopement in general, you’re choosing to focus on the meaning of it all, your love. Doing away with the stressful planning and focusing on your relationship. As your photographer I vow to make it even easier. I’ll be your listening ear, your travel agent, and elopement planner to ensure things go as you want them to.
