I was in a tight spot with needing a last min beach photo shoot that was brought to my attention 4 days before leaving Hawaii to go back home to Texas. I found a marketing tool online that would send my request to different photographers and within the same day Donna inquired what exactly I was looking for. She then set up at a time the following day at a jaw dropping affordable rate to proceed with my shoot. I had no intention to actually geting it done on such late notice but what do you know, my fairy God photographer to the rescue. :-) she drove me to an enchanted, quiet beach in Honolulu and I immediately felt a warm connection and huge heart along with an amazing assistant. They worked so professional and precise as well as uniquely painting one of a kind pictures with light, water and earth. I followed they're guide and let the creaters create. Ive not done many shoots so i had nerves beyond nerves. These two lead me to resemble a pro. :-) I never thought I would ever feel so comfortable and have so much fun. I thank you guys! I'm coming back to see you as soon as I can! Not only did I find a photographer, an artist, and a talent given with passion and not price, I found a friend. :-)

Hello My Name is Theresa. In 2014 my family planned a 50th Wedding Anniversary event for my Mom & Dad. They were going to renew their Wedding Vows on the Beach at Sunset in Hawaii. It was to be an event for all our family and friends to remember for a life time. This required an amazing highly experienced photographer. (Donna Welch). I live in Los Angeles so for me to find a photographer in Hawaii I had no choice but to search the internet . After a long search I found " Thumbtack" and viewed the photographers on their site. I contacted about 5 photographers. Donna Welch was the final photographer I contacted and spoke with. She was to be the one to capture this once in a life time event for our family and friends. My choice could not have been any better. :) Donna was the utmost professional. As all weddings go... we were running about an hour behind schedule...meaning we were losing the light rapidly. This being said... Donna was still able to capture every special and intimate moment on film. Memories we will cherish forever. What a blessing. A special thanks to Donna from the entire Family.

Donna was so fun to work with as she made everyone in my family feel at ease. From "Grandma" to a special needs autistic teenage son, Donna helped bring out each person's personality during the shoot. It was such a wonderful and positive experience which resulted in BEAUTIFUL photos that captured the fun, the mischief, respect and love within our family. We will cherish our pictures forever. We visit Hawaii almost annually and we're so excited to have found Donna as our new "family photographer." I highly recommend her for anyone needing family photos! You will love her as a person and as a professional. BTW, I own a PR agency and have worked with dozens and dozens of photographers in my 25+ years. Donna is as skilled and as talented as they get, with a heart of gold, to boot!

Jon is absolutely FANTASTIC! He photographed a week long international company event for us. Our attendees traveled from all over the globe to Hawaii and we tasked him to capture various images including business, social events and island activities. Jon’s skills are excellent and were appropriate for each of our events. He beautifully captured the expressions, emotions and engagement of our attendees. His photography portrayed the story lines of each event during the week. Jon is well rounded and his attention to detail is impeccable. He is very versatile in the types of images he captured, including individuals, groups and surrounding environment all done beautifully in candid detail. He was extremely informative, in addition to photography services, he also made wonderful recommendations, for entertainment, advised us on traffic for our afternoon of activities and was responsive to calls/emails/texts. He was very timely and professional, working from early morning until after our late night events. His courteous, respectful, and passionate demeanor made it a pleasure to work with him. More importantly, he understands the importance of not disrupting an event with his photographs. He blended in and was part of our global team. We would recommend him time and time again!

Jon photographed our wedding at Waimea Valley and was absolutely fabulous! He came to our house early to take pre-wedding photos. He brought a second photographer to the ceremony and reception to be able to get multiple angles of all of the important stuff. For the portrait portions Jon had a great balance of suggesting photos for us to take and letting us decide what we wanted. After about three weeks we got a link to the full batch of edited photos. They are completely amazing! Jon edited many more than we originally agreed on, we were blown away by the quality of his work. The unedited photos were really great too and we were so happy to be able to go back and relive our wedding day. We highly recommend Jon for wedding or any other photography needs. He is on time and professional and so great to work with.

Jon was an absolute pleasure to work with and his photos turned out amazing. I have worked with a lot of photographers in my career as a PR consultant for hotels and restaurants and he is a gem. I have often times had to wait weeks for the edited images and he had them for us in no time. Five stars all the way!

Steve was awesome! We decided at the last minute to hire a professional photographer to get pictures and hopefully a video of our son's birthday. It was extra special since we were having it during our family reunion. Steve not only took incredible pictures he made a memorable and touching video showing all our family having fun together. Everything he made for us was so much better than we ever hoped for! The pictures, video, and his relaxed professional personality were the best. Thanks Steve!

I was looking for a photography for my sister-in-law's wedding and found Kristina on the internet. My eife and i looked at some of her works on her web skte and liked it. Sent her an inquiru and the price was super right so we settled on using Kristina for this big occasion. It was probably the best decision I made in my life (other than marrying my wife...). We communicated thorugh tezt before the wedding date and Kristina reached out for a final confirmation the day prior to the wedding. In the day of the wedding, we were running behind schedule but Kristina was easy-going and flexible to adapt to our slightly different schedule. When we arrived at the church, Kristina was already there, dressed professionally, with her camera and lenses in hand and ready to fire the camera off. Since we (the bride) were late to the ceremony, the priest commenced the event immedistely as we arrived. Without a word, Kristina automatically found various positions and angles and started shooting away. After the ceremony was over, we went across to the beach. Kristina was taking pics for our entire group along the way, then a lot more pictures at the beach. It only took Kristina 2 days to edit and upload the hundreds of pictures thst she took for us. And honestly, the pictures came out very wonderfully and professiinally done. Just go to Kristina's site and look at Gomez Wedding pictures and you will see what I am talking about. So my conclusion: of you want professional quality work at amateur prices, Kristina is definitely the go-to girl. My wife and I are expecting a baby girl in a few months. We will knock on Kristina's door again and beg her to be our photographer for our new family!

Hiring Kristina was one of the best decisions I've made on my trip to Hawaii. From the beginning, she was very responsive and knowledgeable about the best locations. Throughout our shoot, she had great suggestions about poses. I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted at first but after giving her an idea, she seemed to have read my mind. In the end, the pictures far exceeded my expectations. My fiancée and I were floored with how beautiful they turned out and it was exactly what I was hoping for. She is also very personable, creative, and fun to work with. It was apparent that she loves what she does. I highly recommend her as a photographer, she truly knows her stuff!

Danny shot our engagement photos, and we couldn't have been happier! We had a great conversation before the date where we discussed what we wanted and he gave us potential ideas. On the day-of, we were both a little nervous and I was worried we wouldn't have time to do everything that we wanted, but Danny had such great ideas and even stayed extra time to make sure we had the shot that we wanted! He was also very encouraging and helped us relax, making the photos look more natural. We underestimated how important that would be in a photographer!

We hired Danny for our engagement shoot in Hawaii! Coming from California, we didn't know what were good locations for a photo shoot, but Danny was really helpful with making suggestions! He was patient, friendly, and creative. We got a few of our photos and the ones we have seen turned out beautifully! Would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer in the area. Can't wait to see the remaining photos!

We are not local to Hawaii so searching for a photographer in the area was quite the challenge. We must have searched and sifted through a couple dozen photographers online before we narrowed it down to a few that we really liked. Meeting in person with each photographer would have been ideal to get a better sense of their personality and how comfortable our family, more specifically our 4 year old daughter, would be with him/her. However, given our circumstance, that was not an option. We needed to book someone before we arrived for our family vacation. We waited for each photographer’s response and was instantly drawn to Amber. Her email was so sincere and genuine, not to mention professional and timely. She offered some great ideas for our family shoot and went above and beyond to make it special for us the day of our shoot. What we appreciated the most was her flexibility. The weather during our time in Hawaii was less than favorable and Amber was more than willing to reschedule the shoot last minute to accommodate for a day that didn’t call for rain in the forecast. Amber is personable, easy to work with and made us all feel like we were old time friends. She was also amazing with our daughter. We love the images she captured for us and will forever cherish them. We are so thankful we found Amber.

Amber did a phenomenal job and I could not recommend her more!

Brock and Tina have provided the best professional photography sessions I have ever experienced. They have shot engagement and wedding photos for my wife and I, and I can't express how many compliments we get on their work. RockaFish has also provided their services at several parties and events at our home with fantastic results. Brock and Tina don't only take great photos, but provide a relaxed and fun atmosphere. You aren't standing awkwardly in front of a photographer you barely know. They make it a priority to get to know their customers and develop a relationship long before your photo session. They really do bring out the best in you. If you work with RockaFish Photography, I promise you will get amazing photos and an experience you will never forget. P.S. Also make sure to order their prints from rockafishphotography dot com. They are awesome!

I took a few photos recently with Arielle and my two (moderately well behaved) dogs, which turned out wonderfully. She worked with us, held a toy to hold my dogs' attention, took a few snaps and before I knew it we were done. Arielle is an excellent photographer with a keen eye for location and a natural charisma that makes the process move along easily. Not only does she shoot professional quality photos, but she is extremely personable and easy to work with as well. Thank you Arielle!!

The photos were amazing! I hired Christian for a prom photo shoot for my friend and I. Though I was a little hesitant at first, since it's always a bit awkward when you don't know the person behind the camera, Christian was super nice and made my friend and I feel comfortable from the get go. We wanted a fun, classic, and fancy vibe but didn't exactly have a clear idea, even so Christian understood what we meant and was able to capture everything we wanted. On top of that he even edited and sent the photos to us that same day. 10/10 would hire again and recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality photographer.

I cannot say enough great things about Pilialoha Photography. Everything from the booking to photo delivery was seamless. Kelsi worked with me to find a wardrobe that matched my style and personality to complement the unique shooting location we chose. Patrick made me feel completely at ease during the shoot and Kelsi helped pose me and made sure my hair and wardrobe looked great in each shot. The photos were delivered quickly via an online portal so that I could easily download them into my own photo library for future printing. Their level of professionalism throughout the entire process is unparalleled and the quality of their photos is superb. I couldn't be happier!

Dana and I are friends. I've seen her grow over the last few years as a photographer and love her work. So when I wanted to do a photo shoot with my husband before we left Hawaii she was top of my list. I can't lie, my husband doesn't like having his photo taken. So it was extremely helpful for us that Dana had posing ideas ready for us. She also gave us lots of direction and helped us adapt ideas I had to work for us. I was even more happy with the photos than I thought I could be. I highly recommend Dana if you are looking for beautiful photos.
