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!

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.Sent on 12/31/2019

The absolute best photographer!
It was wonderful working with Kyler to plan the details for our wedding in Hawaii, and although we are located on the mainland, Kyler was always available to answer our questions via phone calls and through e-mails. He was also very attentive to our requests, and closely worked with us throughout the process to make sure everything would run smoothly the day of the wedding.Sent on 11/03/2019
When the actual day of the wedding arrived, Kyler and his team made the photo experience quite enjoyable and fun for us and our bridal party. We received the post-processed photos a few weeks after, and we were extremely pleased to see how perfect all of the photos looked to capture and remember our special day.
It was a joy working with Kyler and his team, and we highly recommend their services to anyone seeking amazing quality and utmost service. We look forward to having another photo opportunity to work with Kai-Photo Hawaii.

Best wedding photographer
Kai-Photo was the absolute best! They have done 3 weddings for our family. They knew where to get all the best shots at each venue and how to cue us into the perfect pose. They were friendly, flexible, and professional. Would absolutely recommend to everyone.Sent on 08/01/2019
