Best experience! - highly recommend!
WOW, WOW, WOW. I am going write a short review first with my lengthy review underneath (for some who want quick reviews and some who like detailed reviews because Tamao really deserves both!).
Quick hits review:
Tamao was an absolute delight to work / collaborate with! She was extremely responsive, very kind and patient when helping us decide where to shoot and so flexible with her schedule!
I have never done a professional photo shoot before where I am the center of attention and where it is so intimate, but she put us such ease! I was really nervous and started to completely freeze during the shoot but somehow she was able to perfectly capture the two of us!
Her prices are also reasonable compared to a few other photographers I reached out to with her similar style of photo shoots. I highly highly recommend Tamao!
I reached out to Tamao a week before Christmas asking if she by chance had any openings for a week after Christmas over the New Year (to do a wedding photo shoot).
She was so responsive and so patient! She was able to fit us in over the holiday time (which I really appreciate she fit us in so last minute). I annoyingly ask a million questions and since I had never been to Kauai, I was overwhelmed with locations for the photoshoot. We really wanted to capture the sunrise or sunset so she provided two great options laying out pros and cons to both. We originally decided to do the sunrise location. However, the day before the photos, I asked if there was any way she could change to the other sunset location and this was literally within 24 hour notice. She said it was absolutely no problem!
She was a complete professional! I thought my husband would be really awkward because he is extremely camera shy and I thought frankly I would be much more natural because I take a lot of photos (and a lot of photos with my friends), but I froze! I don't know why but I just froze during our photos and was so nervous! She totally put me at ease!
She was so friendly and kind, extremely professional and honestly just really an awesome person in general. I say she is awesome as a person because she went out of her way to send me lengthy descriptive texts of suggested places to go and dine at AFTER the shoot was done.
I learned that "Aloha" means so much more than just hello or goodbye. Aloha really means mutual regard and affection and extends warmth in caring with no obligation in return. The word Aloha really does perfectly describe Tamao (and her daughter who accompanied her and was also just so sweet).
The photos came out so wonderfully! Since I asked her to squeeze us in last minute over holidays, I thought it would be weeks and weeks before I got the photos back (and I was willing to be patient), but she reached out less than 2 weeks later that the photos were ready! Since I eloped, my biggest decision to make was the photographer and I am SO happy I went with my gut instinct and went with Tamao! Her prices are extremely reasonable (I had reached out to a few other photographers). I highly highly recommend her!!! If you have the budget, I would look into booking her and her husband for videography! I did not book it because we eloped, but her wedding videos (on insta) look amazing! Stop reading anymore reviews and reach out to her and her husband already!!

1 Million Stars!
I can't say enough amazing things about our experience with Tamao and Matt. Not only was the video incredible and everything we hoped for, the journey along the way was equally as perfect. Anytime you spend a lot of money on a service you want to make sure it's worth the cost, especially as everything little thing adds up with weddings. I can say without a doubt that it's worth every penny. They are extremely talented but the best part is that you can tell they love what they do and they truly care about their clients best interest. Those 3 combinations are the perfect recipe for an EPIC wedding video you will never forget. If you're on the fence because it's an added expense and you're thinking you might be happy with just photos... put that to rest and at least take a look at their portfolio and chat with them!Sent on 03/11/2020

AYA productions is amazing!!! Our experience working with them could not have been better!
These guys are fantastic. Our wedding was cancelled last minute and they helped us plan our dream elopement in less than a week! They took us to some incredible local spots we never would’ve found on our own. Everything about our elopement day was magical, and we cannot thank these guys enoughSent on 12/18/2020
