Michelle was great to work with. Was very communicative beforehand about the shoot, offered a lovely place to do the shoot and took some amazing photos. I'm super glad I found Michelle to capture my Maui experience.

Johnny was so incredible to work with! We purchased a family photo session for my mother for Christmas. There are 11 of us, 6 adults and 5 kids so we are a large group to work with. Johnny was organized and had a clear vision for the photos. He was able to organize all the kids and capture some incredible group photos, which is just what we wanted! We are very happy with the photos we received and highly recommend booking with them!

Michelle was amazing!! Before our family shoot with our 4 month old recently, I inquired about logistics and she responded frequently within an hour. She also reassured me about best time to shoot for the baby and that there wouldn’t be direct sun on our baby at the beach where she recommended we shoot. She also communicated via text the day before and recommended tweaks in the schedule in order to capture the beautiful pink clouds at sunrise. Basically she was very thorough, delightful and chill to work with, and punctual! It will probably take a couple or so weeks to get the full gallery but she already sent us a sneak peak with some photos a few days after the shoot which was awesome, since we were so curious how they turned out. So thankful we went with Lokahi. Bonus: it seems easy to book through the website with the proposed open time slots.

We vacationed on Maui the week of Christmas and at the last minute, I decided that I wanted to take some family/maternity photos. There were many photographers and companies to choose from; I combed through and selected my top 5. disclaimer: I am extremely picky when it comes to photos, editing (or lack thereof), photographer personality and skills. Lokahi Photography was beyond amazing to work with from start to finish. Read my long explanation below for all the deets!! One of my top choices had great pricing, reviews, and photo quality. But what set Lokahi Photography apart and made me choose them over all the other choices was their customer service and ease of communication before even hiring them. After my first conversation with Michelle, I knew that she was the right fit for us, and that she would be wonderful to work with. She spent time answering my 100 questions about location, pricing, weather, best conditions for photos, timing, working with kids, the whole 9 yards. She helped me pick the best location, based on my criteria and what I wanted my photos to look like. She also helped me select outfits that would best fit the location and theme. We texted several times, changing the date and time, based on weather constraints. Her flexibility was so appreciated! On the actual day of, to our surprise, both Michelle and Johnny showed up to work with us and take our photos! Such a welcome surprise to see both photographers! It made things so much easier - navigating the different spots and working with my young kids (2- and 4-yr olds). Not only was it an extra pair of hands, it was a highly skilled additional photographer! Michelle and Johnny worked together to find the best spots, angles, etc. Michelle paid attention to important details, such as the way my dress was positioned, the wind blowing strands of hair into the flowers I had. These are the types of details that I have seen ruin photos. A good photographer won’t just click away, they will look at their subject and position them in the best ways possible to enhance the photos. Aside from their great personalities while taking the photos, they also worked with me to make sure that the finalized, edited photos looked exactly how I wanted. They sent me some proofs (as I explained earlier, I’m picky and wanted a soft, dreamy type of feel to the photos) to make sure the colors and feel was what I wanted. I LOVED working with this company! I couldn’t have been happier with the entire experience from start to finish. I so highly recommend them.

Our experience with Michelle could not have been better! She made us feel so comfortable, found wonderful locations for our photos and edited them beautifully. She truly captured the most beautiful memories of our very favorite place. Thank you, Lokahi Photography, for our priceless photos. We can't recommend you enough!

Michelle is wonderful. She was accommodating and patient with our small children. She went above and beyond to get the shots we wanted. Family pictures usually stress me out, but I enjoyed every minute of this photoshoot. Thank you Lokahi Photography!

Michelle was TRULY incredible! Her demeanor, ease and kindness with which she conducts the shoot makes you instantly comfortable. She went above and beyond to make sure we were getting the shots that we wanted/had envisioned and had such an eye for every photo. She is an artist and it was the most joyous and easy experience. We could not recommend Lokahi Photography enough. Book the photoshoot with them, it’s worth every penny and more!

Such a great experience for my family and I with Johnny. The process was so effortless from booking, email, text, phone call correspondence; To picking the location, which we trusted his taste and experience; To the actual day of the photo shoot. He was so thoughtful and went above and beyond to make everyone comfortable during the photography session, and the photos looked so great! We absolutely will recommend Johnny, and his wife Michelle to our family and friends (whenever they travel to Maui). Our experience with them was much better than photography session with a resort, which locations for shooting are limited. With Lokahi, we were able to be right on the beach and water. So the pictures and background are much more stunning than just resort photos.
