From the moment I spoke to Shiho and George, I had a great feeling about their personalities and especially after reviewing their portfolio, I told my husband I wanted to get them for our wedding! The process of booking them was really easy - both Shiho and George was friendly and very responsive on our email and phone conversations. My husband and I met with George at the Wedding Cafe two months before our wedding and talked about what we wanted for our wedding day.
George is very professional and has been in the business for many years, which started out as a hobby for him. On our wedding day, George introduced us to his assistant, Morgan, who was also a photographer and was very helpful throughout the busy day! George was really easy to work with, VERY patient, very accommodating in regards to our wedding program and gave great instructions for our photos. It really made us feel less awkward doing the poses and we had a lot of fun taking the pictures, even in the humid weather!
We had a last minute cancellation in our photo location and George suggested taking photos at Nu’uanu Valley Park, which turned out to be a stunning location for our wedding pictures. The weather holded up too, and only drizzled right when we’re about to finish (so lucky!). At the wedding venue, George also suggested we took a couple pictures around the location. Those pictures looked so breathtaking, with the lush greeneries and mountains as our background! It looked so unreal and postcard perfect. I personally LOVE the editing, it made my photos looked more whimsical, magical and timeless! George delivered high-quality, beautiful pictures that captures our genuine, raw emotions of that day. My husband and I are so thankful we got Eclat for our wedding photography, we had such an amazing experience and highly recommend their photography services.

Eclat Photography captured the moments in my wedding beautifully! George is very professional, friendly and easy to collaborate with. His photography styles range from soft to dynamic and he works well in any conditions and situations. He moves quickly so he didn't miss anything during my wedding and reception. He made our guests laugh/smile with his quirky "smile!" face. We received our photos on digital cd within a week. They have worked in the wedding industry for many years and has a wide range of clients from small, destination weddings from Japan to large local Hawaii weddings. I definitely recommend them!

George from éclat was extremely accommodating, professional, and very personable. His down-to-earth personality made us feel comfortable and relaxed. He is very creative and has fantastic composition. He took photos of the Waianae valley behind us and it made the whole scene look magical! He is very patient and a lot of fun to have around. Best of all, he made us look good!!! We definitely recommend éclat to anyone is looking for an excellent photographer!

George and Shiho are very easy to work with and they really makes you feel comfortable. Pictures came out beautiful and I would love to work with them again.

I had the most amazing experience with éclat photography! The pictures came out beautifully and I couldn't have asked for a better photography company!
James · Married on 05/19/2012
George and Shiho were a pleasure to work right from the start. All our requests starting from before the wedding,during the wedding, and after the wedding were completed in a timely manner and with great professionalism. George was a great photographer to work with and entertained our guest to the fullest. He spoke Japanese, English and Chinese which was a huge factor since my family speaks only Chinese, my friends speak only English and my wife's side speaks only Japanese. Shiho-san was a great point of contact to fulfill any of our wedding photography needs. I strongly recommend Eclat Photography to anyone getting married in Hawaii

George is a true artist and the very definition of professional. We were lucky that he was available for our wedding, which was actually on a very popular date, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. George and his second photographer, Kayoko, had their ideas, which came out excellent, but they also listened to us, so that was great that they could bring our own visions to life. They were full of energy and original ideas, so we never got tired of taking the same pose. Plus, we received our photos back in a reasonable amount of time, which we appreciate because our family and friends were requesting to see them. All in all, I highly recommend Eclat Photography to any couple.

George was so awesome on our big day! He made sure not to bother us too much (like some photographers), but as soon as he saw a moment the needed to be stopped..He did so.. such amazing photo's!! He's great because he knows when to shoot from a distance and when to shoot up close and personal..Good balance of style..Either documentary for the natural moments and then extra flash and light tricks to get those 24karat sparkly images... Thanks George & 'eclat!!!

We first met George at the Bridal Expo. If youve ever been to a Bridal Expo, you can understand how many choices you have for everything from decor and flowers to food and photography. We kind of had an idea of how we wanted our pictures, more artistic and not so boring. Georges photos were so amagzing and he was polite, even right from the start. His communication was always in a timely manner and he was always on time for meetings. I was lucky enough not to know what kind of pictures I wanted but George and his team got those shots anyways. (favors, chairs, desserts) My husband got several great shots with this groomsmen, many of them getting ready, one with them jumping in the middle of the street, one of them posing in the stairway, and one of them just walking down the busy street. More shots like that with my bridesmaids would have been great. After the wedding, it took a few weeks for our pictures to post but most of them were amazing and it takes a little longer to get the actual album but the wait is totally worth it!

Eclat Photography was the BEST vendor out of all the vendors providing service at my wedding. George Wang, the principal photographer has a true artistic eye and is flexible and in terms of price, is the best value for what you get! My husband and I had him do our engagement photos, the wedding and he offered to also do a post wedding shoot since it had rained on our wedding, for no additional cost. I highly recommend him, and he's such a nice and down-to-earth guy to boot!
Jubie · Married on 02/06/2011
George is very professional and will go out to check the locations to make sure he knows them well. He is very client oriented and is a pleasure to work with. Each time we look at our photos, it brings back all the fun memory. Also, We LOVED our engagement photos! George takes so many photos, he is fast & make us feel really comfortable while taking those photos!
George is skillful capture the "moment". He is insightful and sensitive photographer that you will be happy you hired. In addition, our wedding slides & song that is creat and select by George, it's just amazing. Highly recommended!!!

I am from Hawaii but live in LA, CA. I had a list of top 3 photographers that I narrowed down based on reviews and website and made the final decision to go with George with Eclat Photography with my husband after looking through websites. BEST DECISION EVER!!! George was amazingly responsive via email (despite the time difference), when we made it out to Hawaii to meet with him he spent a long time talking to us about what we wanted for the wedding the feel etc etc. He made planning a wedding from the mainland extremely easy. Day of the wedding, George and his partner arrived early, was amazing and felt like part of the bridal party! I look at our final pictures now and can't believe how great he framed pictures, made everyone look beautiful, got shots that are so artistic and creative - LOVED THEM ALL!!! I am so happy that we decided to go with Eclat Photography, George and his crew. Best decision and easiest decision ever for the wedding! My husband and I are so extremely pleased.
Nancy · Married on 08/07/2010
We believe that pictures are the most valued items from the entire wedding day, and my husband and I could not be happier with the images George & Ken from E'clat Photography was able to capture.
They were unobstructive, professional, in control, and top of all friendly, caring, and patient ! They are just AMAZING ! Not only were we impressed, but our bridal party (local & foreign) mentioned that E'clat made the process so fun and easy, and they managed to always put a smile on our face.
They went above and beyond to take care all of us, (especially the bride when I had a little wardrobe malfunction), and was very understanding with our last minute changes and requests! It wouldn't have been the same without them supporting and guiding us all the way through! The results they gave us and the numerous comments we got about how excellent they were is a testament to their skill and attitude. They've been fantastic every step of the way, and we cannot say enough wonderful things! Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts ! Love Lance & Nancy
Sean · Married on 07/10/2010
Eclat photography is absolutely great! We had George took our engagement photos, then George and Ken took our wedding pictures. All pictures turned out beautiful and really captured well the moment. George and Ken were very professional, very friendly and very easy to work with. We were very pleased with our decision to pay a little more and went with George. Couldn't ask for more.
Joy · Married on 06/26/2010
Eclat Photography has one of a kind wedding pictures. They really captivate "your day's events". I was very pleased with the outcome of the pictures and the promptness of giving the pictures was quick! George Wang makes you feel comfortable when we took our engagement photos and the day of our wedding. They are very amiable people (George,Shiho) to work with. They are open to ideas and suggestions. The quality of the pictures is reasonable for the price. They are very prompt on the day of the wedding! My husband and I couldn't ask anyone else better to take our memorable events. Looking back at the pictures that he took reminded me as if it was the day of the wedding :) Brings back fond memories for the years to come! I was pleased with the overall quality of the company. I would highly recommend!

Thank you so much George, Shiho, and Staff! We wish you all the best and success!
Chan & Will · Married on 02/06/2010
I absolutely loved working with Eclat Photography. My husband and I are from HI but were living out of state and chose Eclat solely based on their website and a recommendation from a mutual friend. It was risky but their work is amazing!We fell in love with their style of pictures and felt no other photographer in HI could capture what we wanted for our wedding day. George and I kept in touch through email as I did not have a chance to meet him until 4months before the wedding. His responses were very timely (usually within a day) and every question I had was always thoroughly answered. His wife Shiho, also kept me on track with contract deadlines, payments, etc. The Eclat team is very organized and I was never once worried about them missing any details. When it came the day of wedding, George captured all the perfect shots without being distracting during the ceremony and reception. Eclat offers multiple packages that can be personalized to your needs. It can be pretty pricey, however, we are very satisfied with the final product and would recommend Eclat Photography to all couples marrying in HI.

During our initial consultation with George and Shiho, we just knew they were the right fit (we actually signed the contract on the spot). They were so easy to work with and made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. George and Ken did both our engagement shoot and wedding photos and both came out amazing. Our engagement shoot was so much fun, George and Ken were willing to do whatever it took to get good shots and the pictures definitely showed it. On our actual wedding day, they were great from beginning to end! Our entire wedding party loved working with them.
It's important to find a photographer that you can feel comfortable with since they will be with you throughout your special day. You want someone who will make the experience fun and memorable, and also provide excellent photos. We have absolutely no regrets choosing Eclat Photography for our wedding!
**The albums are also AMAZING

eclat is absolutely wonderful! they are totally professional, easy to work with and do their best to provide everything a bride could desire on her wedding day!!!
Lee · Married on 08/01/2009
If you want exceptional photography, Eclat is the company. His wife Shiho was also present at our wedding, and she is so sweet and works wonders with George in creating romantic looks and stunning photos.
Alison · Married on 06/26/2009
We worked with Eclat for both our engagement and wedding photos, and George and Shiho (and Rachel!) took amazing care of us. George has a talented eye and knows how to capture both the energetic moments and the subtle emotions. Being shy, we were a little self-conscious about taking our photos in public (Downtown Honolulu, Waikiki, Magic Island, Makapu'u, and various beaches), but George's professionalism and personality made us completely comfortable. We absolutely love the photos and know that they captured us. The whole experience was perfect.
Julienne · Married on 03/28/2009
George Wang and his associates are extremely talented and fun to work with. Their work is fabulous and I would recommend them for couples who are looking for a creative documentary of their special day. Thank you eclat!
