    1000% Recommend!!

    Words cannot express how amazing Hanakapi'ai is! She was a pleasure to work with before our wedding day, very responsive and had no issues when we had to reschedule our wedding date. Then on my wedding day she was beyond incredible. The moments she captured were absolutely amazing and she went un-noticed while capturing all of these moments. When we received our photos back we were speechless. She sent sneak peek photos in less than two days, sent our full album in two weeks and we have received an overwhelming amount of compliments from guests and family that could not attend on how beautiful the images are. This was truly the greatest experience with a vendor and I would recommend anyone getting married in Kauai to choose Hanakapi'ai as your photographer.

    Can’t say enough about Hanakapi’ai!!!

    You will not regret hiring Hanakapi’ai as your photographer! She did the photography for our wedding day- leading up to the wedding day she was very responsive and detailed and answered any questions or concerns I had. I really wanted to try out the rustic/bohemian style of photography for wedding pictures and she went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make sure everything was just right. She sent me different variations of edits to help achieve the look I was going for and never made me feel that I was burdening her when I wanted to tweak the edits a bit more until they were perfect. She did an incredible job achieving the rustic look I was going for which goes to show her talent in being able to cater to any photography style ! I cannot wait to see the final pictures and being grateful for Hanakapi’ai that she was able to translate the emotion from our wedding day so we’ll into pictures that we will cherish forever. Also I need to mention she was almost 8 months pregnant and she was still getting on the ground lying down to capture the perfect shot!!! Crazy! Such a treasure to work with :). Hanakapi’ai, I wish you all the best with your growing family and career!
