We understand that finding the perfect photography team for your wedding day can be challenging. You want the assurance that they are trustworthy, as well as personal and authentic with a seamless vision and execution. Look no further, we got you covered.

We are Kyler and Grace, the husband and wife team behind Kai-Photo Hawaii. We appreciate art, music, travel, and epic culinary experiences. We love all things WEDDING and we are extremely passionate about what we do.

We understand that for most of our clients, this is their very first time planning a wedding and we know that it can sometimes be overwhelming. We are here with you on this exciting journey and welcome any questions that you may have along the way.

Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience to each of our clients from the very beginning to the very end - not just on the wedding day. In fact, we were recently awarded The Knot's Best of Weddings Hall of Fame for consistently exceeding our client's expectations year after year.

Our style of photography is a mix of photojournalism and guided posing. We prefer to capture important moments as they happen naturally, but we have the expertise to control and direct situations when needed. We seek to artistically capture every moment from your wedding in a way that allows you to relive what you experienced on that wonderful day. With the exception of group photos and few a fun artistic shots, we strive to be as unobtrusive as possible, letting you enjoy your day while we capture the candid photos you’ll love.

Communication is incredibly important to us, and we make every effort to respond to all inquiries right away. In most cases, you'll receive a reply within a few hours. If we are photographing an all-day event, you'll typically receive a reply later that evening or the very next day.

When it comes to photography, we notice the little details. From the initial planning, photography on the wedding day, editing your images, and designing your custom heirloom album - it's the little details that make a difference between something good and something great. And all of this is in addition to our award-winning imagery and commitment to excellence. Give us a call or email us to set up a consultation to see how we can be a part of your special day. We look forward to hearing from you!

    Truly Amazing!

    We love Kyler and Kai-Photo! I wish we could give them more than 5 stars because they truly deserve it.

    We worked with Kyler in 2019 for our engagement photos after our family recommended him. We absolutely loved all of our photos and working with Kyler was such an easy and enjoyable process, that we were so excited to work with again for our wedding.

    Due to Covid-19, we had to postpone our wedding from October 2020 to October 2021. Throughout the two years that we have worked with Kyler, he has been nothing but professional, personable, extremely responsive, and always willing to answer our questions and offer his expertise when we need it.

    Words can't express how much we have enjoyed working with Kyler and how wonderful he is. He traveled from Oahu to the Big Island for our wedding and arrived on time and ready to go. He was so great with directing all of us for pictures, whether it was myself, my bridesmaids, or any of the guys. He was also so great with our 5 year old flower girl and ring bearer. I know that it can sometimes be challenging to engage young kids in photos, but Kyler knew exactly how to engage and interact with them during the photos that they were included in. Overall Kyler made the entire day and all photography so enjoyable and effortless for us, and I think it really shows through on our photos.

    We absolutely LOVE all of our photos and could not have asked for anyone or anything better! Kyler is very detail orientated and made sure to take the time to help us pose, direct us, or remind us to fix our hair or leis when needed. He was extremely attentive and was open to all of the things we wanted to do/incorporate into our wedding photos, such as going back to the same beach where we did our engagement photos to get a few in our wedding attire. He even helped us redo our photography timeline about a month out from the wedding, and we can't thank him enough. It turned out to be everything and more than we could have hoped for.

    Kyler is wonderful and I recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer, whether it's for an engagement, wedding, or even a family photoshoot! His work is amazing, he is kind and so easy to work with, and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed

    The Complete Package :)

    Deciding to go with Kai-Photo Hawaii for our engagement and wedding photography was a decision we will never regret. Leading up to it, we did a lot of research, contacted a handful of photographers, and met with a few including Visionari and Mike Pham Photography. It was hard to decide because there are so many highly recommended photographers out there. We hired Kai-Photo because after meeting Kyler, we felt that we found someone personable, exceptionally skilled and truly dedicated to their art, genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple, and easy to work with. We aren’t camera people, so having a photographer we felt comfortable around and could trust was incredibly important to us. On top of all of that, we don’t know of anyone who does panoramic crystal albums the way Kai-Photo does.

    From the first time we contacted Kai-Photo and throughout the months that followed, Kyler responded quickly and meticulously answered all of our questions. We were planning our wedding by ourselves in a short span of time, so having someone who communicates well like Kyler really helped to diffuse some of the stress. The way he gave us information, suggestions, and timeline deadlines in manageable chunks showed us how organized, knowledgeable, and experienced he was. Kyler worked with us to create a wedding photography timeline that would get us the shots that we wanted in the amount of time we had, suggested efficient ways to get photos with all our guests in the amount of space we would have, and even offered to look at our reception program for us when we mentioned that we weren’t sure if the timing was right. Talk about going the extra mile, and we found that this work ethic also showed in the photos that Kai-Photo took and processed for us.

    Kyler worked around our schedules to do a two-location engagement photo shoot that told our story, even accommodating that the locations were farther apart than what would be normally recommended for the time constraint. This was our first experience with a professional photographer so we were nervous, but Kyler was able to help us feel comfortable. He balanced giving us solid directions with asking for our input regarding special poses or backgrounds. It ended up being a super fun experience, and it was neat that Kyler was getting excited about the photos and wanted to show us sneak peaks of shots he got. He sent us the link to our online gallery in less than two weeks, and the photos were amazing! We loved the variety of special moments captured against the vibrant scenic colors and creative lighting setups.

    Kyler and another photographer, Kristy, came to our wedding. They were both friendly and professional as they met our family and wedding party, which helped everyone to feel at ease. Kyler’s attention to detail really stood out to us; he caught little things like the bottom button of one of the groomsmen’s jackets that shouldn’t have been buttoned, or fixed how my dress fell to show off its intricacies. Kyler and Kristy blended in seamlessly during the ceremony while getting their shots; we hardly even noticed they were there and yet they captured so many of the moments that we want to remember. Even when things happened outside of “the plan” like family members not all present for family photos, waves coming onto the shore where we were going to stand, guests asking to snap photos with their cameras, and my last minute request to take a few extra photos with my bridal party, they handled it calmly and with grace. We received our processed photos just about five weeks later and are thrilled with how they came out. The link to the online gallery has been great to share with family and friends, and we continue to get compliments about our engagement session and wedding photos. We feel so fortunate to have found Kyler of Kai-Photo Hawaii and would hire him again in a heartbeat.
