What is Your Pricing?
I don’t publish my pricing online, collections start at $3000 and weʻre happy to customize a collection that suits your needs. As many of our couples choose to fly to Hawaiʻi for their wedding, we’re also available to document your family outings, rehearsal dinner, or any other soiree you may have during your stay on our amazing Hawaiian islands.
Do You Travel?
Absolutely, Oahu I’m asked to travel to Maui, Kauai, Hawaii (Big Island), Lanai often and have photographed weddings in New York City, Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles and San Diego. If you’re looking to have your wedding outside of Oahu, there are travel fees involved such as air fare, hotel, car rental and some meals. In general, we arrive two days before your event and will leave the day after. Just depends on the time zones in which are are traveling to.
What Kind of Equipment do You Use?
I photograph with Canon gear and equipment. From the Canon 5d Mark iii and L Series Lenses. I love my 70-200mm IS L, 50 1.4mm USM. Being a fine art photographer, Iʻm a film shooter as well. I use the Pentax 645 system and my favorite film is Fuji 400h. Some clients just love the way film looks that you can not get with digital. I promise I have more in my bag, prepared for almost any situation.
Do You Work with a Second Shooter?
When you book me as your photographer, I am the one showing up on your wedding day to photograph. I usually bring an assistant with me to help with lighting, carrying equipment, wrangling guests for family formals and making sure I don’t fall into those pesky holes kids dig at the beach. Yes, I have fallen into them! Sometimes couples who are having a large wedding have the need for a second photographer which, I totally understand. Please let me know when you inquire that you’re interested in having a second shooter in addition to an assistant so I may quote you accordingly.
How Many Images Will I Receive?
Depending on your coverage and the way your day unfolds, I average about 60-80 images per hour. It takes about four to six weeks for your images to be ready and uploaded to the web gallery. If you need images for thank you cards, we can provide a few for you.
Do you edit your images
Yes, all images go though a hand selected process and are edited. I’ll go over each image again, selecting a handful with some extra attention to them (that is why it takes 4-6 weeks). If your collection comes with an album, all images are crafted for printing. Blemishes removed, hairs fixed etc.
Do I Receive the Hi-Res Files?
Yes. The images that appear in your gallery will be provided on a USB flash drive with a letter of consent allowing you to print at a lab of your choice for personal use. The web gallery includes print and product offerings and when you order prints from us, we guarantee their quality and color.
Can I Receive the RAW Files?
RAW images are not available to view or for purchase. Part of the reason you hire us, is that we process them (the RAW FILES) into beautiful images that you trust us to create.
