Do you want to absolutely fall in LOVE with your wedding photos, and, get this, have fun whilst having them taken? Do you want your wedding to actually be MORE fun BECAUSE of process of taking photos? Do you want to end up with REAL and EMOTIVE moments that bring the happy tears, and hit you in the feels? Wedding photos that make you remember and take you right back to that moment in time? Then you probably need to hire me... like right now...
MY SHOOTING STYLE
As your Hawaii destination wedding and elopement photographer, I am a high energy, super fun, kinda artsy-fartsy, little bit weird girl who puts my whole heart and soul into everything that I do. I am always taking photos, with my phone or with my camera and I enjoy observing and noticing and capturing and documenting. I am at my happiest when I am documenting others, doing things that they love, with people that the love.
To me, you are a super model. Even if you don't feel like one or aren't willing to own that yet. We are going to rock the CRAP out your photos, but, being that I am THE MOST AWKWARD PHOTO SUBJECT EVER, I realize that having a camera in your face can be stressful, so as your Hawaii destination wedding and elopement photographer, I give a ton of instruction so that you don't ever have to worry about what to do with your hands (or any other body parts for that matter). The end result is you not only falling in love with your photos, but falling in love with the photo taking experience itself.
My end goal, as your Hawaii destination wedding and elopement photographer, is to deliver to you, a gallery full of carefully curated images that poignantly speak the energy and love of your day. A living memory of the anticipation, the overwhelming feelings, the sweetness, the love. You're gonna feel your photos... over and over and over again. You're gonna wanna hug me... and hire me again and again and again... it's true.

why do it?"

I'm definitely the Hawaii Wedding Photographer for you if:
You love photography. Like, more than most people. And you recognize that I’m going to be with you ALL DAY on your wedding day. So you want us to be a good match.
You're more interested in quality than quantity. You'd rather have 400, UNIQUE, SUPER-SOLID, EMOTIVE PHOTOS, than 1000 photos that are mostly repeats of each other.
You want to have fun. You love to laugh and you want photo taking, and your wedding itself, to be a fun event
There’s going to be a time when say “I want to do a weird one”. And you’re going to be like... YESSS! We’re weird too!
You want your photos to look and feel like candid moments, even if they aren't actually candid moments.
You are happy to let it all go and have fun on your special day. You've planned and prepared and on your special day you want to let it all go, let it unfold exactly as it was meant to be, and enjoy it no matter what. I am a recovering perfectionist, so I can help you with this process if you need. :)
You’re REAL. And you appreciate that I am too. Because this is what results honest, emotive photos.
I'm definitely NOT the Hawaii Wedding Photographer for you if:
You’re more concerned with the number of photos you get than their content.
You want standard, posed, formals and that's it. I mean, I do some posed formals, of course, but that's not what the majority of your gallery will be. I aiming for real, fun images that show true connection.
You don't really like the person you're marrying. It will show in your photos and you will.not.like.what.you.see. Not fun. At all.
You are hell bent on publishing. I get published all the time, but not because that's the end goal. I want to capture all the true beauty of your day in a way that’s right for you… not shoot to impress a magazine editor..
You want fake skies or dinosaurs photoshopped into your photos. I don't do fake and I have no interest in making your wedding look different than what it actually was. I reserve my bomb photoshop skills for making my family members puke rainbows (true story... check my instagram).
You want me to tell people to say cheese. I LOVE cheese, but I’m not going to say that to elicit a fake expression. I do cheese with wine. Not photos.

“Everyone absolutely loved her amazing energy!”
“We cannot believe how AMAZING our photos are. Not only did she capture the emotion and excitement in the air but everyone at the wedding absolutely loved her amazing energy! If you are looking for photos that can impress even the harshest of critics look no further, she is the best in the business!”
She was easy-going, funny & made us feel very comfortable
“My husband & I loved working with Trish so much. She was easy-going, funny & made us feel very comfortable - she was great at directing us but also keeping everything laid-back & natural… All the photos look amazing - both the 'formal' posed shots as well as so many great candid ones - we have received so many compliments & will treasure our photos forever. Trish was also very quick to respond to emails & give advice /suggestions if we asked - very much appreciated.”

“An incredible artist and so easy to work with”
“Trish is an incredible artist and so easy to work with. I absolutely adore our wedding photos. I have been told our pictures “look like they’re from a movie”, “should be in a magazine” and “are like a fairytale.” I asked for romantic and dramatic. That’s definitely what she gave us, and I could not be happier with the decision to hire her for our photography.”
