    We cannot say enough good things about James and Bev and their work!
    My fiance and I planned a pre-wedding honeymoon back in march in Hawaii and took the opportunity to have our engagement pictures taken over there. I was a little apprehensive with working with someone without even meeting them beforehand but both James and Bev are amazing. Initially we had no idea on where to take the pictures, it was our first time visiting Hawaii, and they not only helped us to pick a location but had the most patience with me about changing places and time and everything. Bev is such a sweetheart, she was the one I had the most contact with, either through emails or text/phone calls and James is the artist.
    Our pictures turned our amazing and everyone we show them to love them. We couldn't be happier and more in love with the photos!! If you are looking for an amazing high quality and professional photographer in Hawaii, James Rubio is the perfect choice.

    Bottom line, James is fantastic. From our first conversation to our last, James has been absolutely amazing. Friends and family will always compliment your photographer and their work because that is their job. However, we've received hundreds of compliments from family, friends, strangers on social media and even from printing sources on the work that James (&Tracy) &Bev have done. It's truly a testament of genuineness when people go out of their way to pay you a compliment. We had nearly 800 photos from our 6 hour wedding session and from our day after underwater session, and EVERY.SINGLE.ONE of the photos are awesome. As the bride and groom it's easy to say that we are a little biased because it was our wedding, so each photo has a special meaning, but that being said, each-photo-has-a-special-meaning. James was able to capture the true emotions and energy of our wedding to create those special meanings. People will always want their standard shots, stare at the camera, smile on 3, and you should get those, but trust us when we say "just have fun and let James do the work." Our favorite photos are of us looking at each other laughing, having fun, living. On our first conversation with James, I asked him about underwater photos. He had done a few sessions but said that he would deliver and boy he was not wrong. I followed him on instagram and saw that since our convo he had been practicing and snapping some amazing pictures. Don't be shy to ask him for what you want and be upfront. He is absolutely willing to take on a challenge. Despite salt water, tides and treading water with my dress and train flowing, James was able to capture our adventurous side and deliver some extremely romantic pictures with some AMAZING light. We can't say enough about James and his crew. His down-to-earth, wholesome personality & his insanely talented abilities made such a positive impact on us, not to mention, we have 800 amazing photos that capture that special moment forever

    James and Bev Rubio are the only choice you should even consider for your Hawaiian wedding photography. Check out James' portfolio! James is an incredible artist. My husband and I had a very small wedding in the Waipio valley on the big island. James and Bev answered all my questions in a timely fashion and worked with our wedding planner to give us exactly what we wanted. James was willing to hop in the Jeep and go down to the black sand beach for photos after the ceremony. He knew all the right spots to get the best shots. Our pictures are priceless. We had no concerns regarding the time it took to receive our photos. We received an email with a photo montage set to music that James put together for us. Then we received a thumb drive with all of our photos. James and Bev also gave us a private link for family and friends to view the photos and purchase those they would like. We just couldn't have asked for a better experience or a better photographer.
