About Toby Hoogs Photography

Toby Hoogs Photography is based in Kailua-Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii, and has been voted the Best Photographer in West Hawaii for the last seven years in a row! Toby has over 20 years of experience as a photographer and during his career, he has had the privilege of photographing more than 1,800 weddings!

Toby and his wife of 11 years, Renee, specialize in high-end weddings, portraits, and lifestyle photography, all with an emphasis on outdoor settings and the natural beauty of the islands. Toby Hoogs Photography also provides videography and a full complement of related services.

Toby was born and raised in Kailua-Kona. Developing a natural aptitude from an early age, he shot his first wedding at just 17. He then studied photography in New York City, before returning to the islands in 1992 to continue building his photography business.

Toby uses the most advance and state-of-the-art-equipment. Combining a vast and diverse array of experience, with an organic flair for capturing sponteneous instances as they transpire, Toby brings a refined, yet comfortable, photojournalistic approach to each project.The consensus from Toby's many clients is that his laid back, friendly, and unobtrusive personality relaxes his subjects, so that the energy of the present flows with ease. The magical moments that unfold are thus real, not contrived, and are recorded as they truly happen.

Toby's creative skill produces memorable photos tailored to the style of every event, and each couple's unique vision and personality.

Although based on the Big Island of Hawaii, Toby regularly shoots weddings on the other islands, the mainland United States, and has traveled to Australia, Central America, and Africa. His past editorial and commercial clients include: The New York Times, National Geographic, The Food Network, The Outdoor Channel, Martha Steward Magazine, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine, Pacific Weddings Magazine, etc.

    I can't recommend Toby enough. He was absolutely amazing as our wedding photographer. You can see how absolutely passionate he is about what he does. It definitely shows in his work. I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. Not only did he take amazing photos at our wedding as well as the reception, but he went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly and that I was comfortable. Because we had a destination wedding, it can be hard to choose vendors. Before we even booked Toby, we asked if he would FaceTime with us so we could "meet" and get to know him. Talking to him through FaceTime, you could feel how passionate he was about his photography. He answered any and all questions that I had and never pushed me to book him. I felt that he knew what he was doing and I could tell he truly loves what he does and that won me over. I booked him and after that, it got even better. He met with us once we got to the island and talked with us about everything that would happen on wedding day. He truly put me at ease and made me very confident in my decision choosing him. I was worried about him being a male, would he pay attention to my hair being out of place, or an unflattering position. I was blown away! Every time he took a picture, he would make sure my veil and dress looked absolutely perfect and that there wasn't a hair out of place. I couldn't believe how perfectly he paid attention to every detail, and I couldn't have been more comfortable with him taking pictures. I pretty much forgot he was there (no offense Toby!). He took so many pictures and I couldn't be happier with the result! I wish we lived in Hawaii so he could photograph all the important moments in our life. Thank you so much Toby! You are truly amazing at what you do!!!

    Toby Hoogs was very professional and personable the entire experience. He honestly did more for our wedding then being just a videographer and photographer. He helped plan the set up and location planning since we had no idea of where we should go, being that this was our first trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. I would STRONGLY recommend Toby and his team to help with your wedding. Our photos came out flawless. Toby helped us to get in the perfect poses, captured our emotions and made us feel at ease. Toby met us at our hotel, took photos there and followed us to our wedding site. The day was perfect and Toby helped to make it this way. Our photos came out perfect and the flash drive that Toby sends your pictures on has a very unique and creative touch.

    We found Toby by searching on line when we started planning our wedding. When we also finalized our wedding planner, she raved about Toby so we knew we were on the right track. We ended up meeting Toby to shoot our engagement photos and we knew we made the right choice. He is an incredibly talented photographer and such an easy going guy. Our engagement and wedding photos was such a blast - he made everything flawless. Recently we received the link to view our photos and we cant wait to get a hold of our album and they are truly amazing. Toby, words cant describe how thankful we are for making everything possible for us. We will cherish these photos forever! Remember what we told you in Hawaii, you guys are welcome to visit us any time! It may be Peru now...but who knows where we end up next :)

    If James Brown was the hardest working man in show business then that makes Toby Hoogs the hardest working photographer in the event photography business. He is deeply committed to his trade and it shows in how he approaches each event. Toby is rarely seen resting. Instead he is constantly searching for the perfect photo opportunity. This dedication translates into absolutely beautiful work. We have had the honor of working with Toby dozens if not hundreds of times of the years and it is always an absolute pleasure. We would highly recommend him for your next wedding or special event.
