Wonderful wedding photo experience

Christine took the photos of our
beach wedding. We are extremely satisfied with the result. She managed to capture the essence of the moment. We are both reserved and not at ease in front of the camera but Christine made us feel comfortable. She is friendly and easy going. She was always quick with her replies. This was reassuring as we were planning the wedding from afar. Thanks Christine for a wonderful experience!

Absolutely amazing!

I chose Christine (Kilikina Photography) for my wedding photos. After messaging multiple photographers, Christine responded warmly and very promptly. For me, this made a difference and helped in my selection process. Her price range for photos is humble and reasonable. As a bride planning her destination wedding from a far, Christine exceeding my expectations. She made herself available to talk and answered all of my questions, provided suggestions and became a friend.

Words honestly cannot express how impressed I am with her professionalism, communication, and warmth. I felt assurance with her and my anxiety was soothed having someone to talk to about my wedding, locations for photos, ceremony, and the island; while being far away and feeling out of control. When I met Christine in person she was very sweet, calm, and professional. She met my needs in her photography and was there to support me. I felt confident and comfortable with her. She had my husband and I's best interest in mind with planning/shooting the photos, and helped me with my dress.

I really could not have asked for more in a photographer with her kindness, skill, peaceful presence during my ceremony and after for photos. When I received my photos I was astounded. She did an absolutely spectacular job. She is without a doubt skilled in photography and chose amazing angles, shots etc. to capture the moments of our beach wedding and us as a married couple post ceremony. She has a great eye in her work and will capture the most beautiful and perfect pictures. When choosing a photographer in Kauai please choose Christine! I would 100% recommend her as your photographer, you will not be disappointed.

Even better than we imagined

The photos came out gorgeous, not only because Christine clearly has an eye for both taking photos and editing them, but also because she created a wonderful rapport with us. It was nice to have her as part of our special day and the resulting photos will make us smile for years and years to come! I can't recommend her enough!

Christine is wonderful!! We have worked together for years and not once has she been late for an event or hand to cancel. She is very reliable and her photos are beautiful.
