Patrick and Kelsi were great to work with. I am not always the most comfortable in front of the camera, but they were really great about coaching me through things and making things feel natural and comfortable. They also helped me pose and made subtle adjustments to make sure the photos turned out perfect. This was even more impressive as the photos we took were arial, and I was in a harness leaning back off a cliff edge! While this was a bit of a scary feeling, they made sure that everything was safe and clearly were experienced with the set up. Overall it was a really great experience, and I would highly recommend working with them!Mar 13, 2018Verified
I sincerely do not know where to begin. In one word, AMAZING! I organized a surprise engagement to my fiancee in Oahu, HI. While living in DC I knew no one in the state of HI but alog came Kelsi and Patrick. -SERVICE- They were like old friends who were helping me pull off this elaborate proposal plan. From sending outfit suggestions to picking up my shipped props, buying more props for me, coordinating with other service providers and their staff, setting up the props in difficult conditions; Kelsi and Patrick made me and my fiance’s day exceptionally amazing! I felt like they were my long lost friends at the end of it all. -QUALITY- Their photography, videograpy and quality of work, including their professionalism is all that you want in a service of this nature, and then some! I am no expert but just go on their website or instagram and see for yourself. In this era of social media they were respectful of our wishes to remain private, but also catered to those modern needs by releasing a highlight package in less than 48 hours. The results were stunning to say the least. On top of it all I felt like their pricing was exceptionally reasonable for the amount of work they do for you! -PROFESSIONALISM- Kelsi and Patrick’s professionalism is just amazing. My fiance is never comfortable with photographers but Kelsi made sure she was comfortable and made sure it was her day and the focus was on her as it should be for a girl on a day as such! They are just amazing people and feel like great friends that you never had in a far away place! In conclussion, nothing I write or say here can truly exlpain how great they were. If you ever bump into their service, HIRE THEM! That is he best decision you will ever make! Cheers. Mario and DilaniSep 10, 2018Verified
I am super happy with my experiences with Pilialoha! They are very professional, down to earth, and easy to work with. Patrick and Kelsi were great at coaching me during the shoot and using the natural environment in creative ways to achieve awesome shots. They seemed to capture me in unexpected graceful moments and I was surprised by how beautiful the photos turned out. I would definitely recommend Pilialoha and would return to them again!Nov 18, 2017
Pilialoha Photography was all around WONDERFUL for our engagement photoshoot. Kelsi was so prompt and responsive with our planning emails and definitely listened when we told her we wanted a romantic forest shoot. Patrick has an amazing eye and took some incredible photos, playing with the light filtering through the trees and the natural beauty of our surroundings. Patrick and Kelsi are very professional, and because they are a couple who work as a team they give the whole experience a really comfortable, fun feel. I was thrilled with the shoot and was so excited to get photos back within the week - and they far surpassed my expectations. I'm blown away and can't recommend them enough!May 16, 2018
I cannot say enough good things about Pilialoha Photography! Kelsi and Patrick are so great at what they do. They helped us decide what location would capture our relationship and what we love about Hawaii the best. They made us feel so comfortable and helped us pose in a way that looked natural. The fact that they work as a team really makes it a great experience. Kelsi even made me a haku to wear! I am very impressed with the whole process and absolutely LOVE how the photos turned out. They really listened to what we were looking for in our engagement photos and made it happen! Their communication from start to finish was incredible. We had the photos back within a week! I 100% recommend using them!!Mar 11, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We think that everyone should have access to stunning portraits and therefore do our best to offer affordable pricing. We create a customized package for every customer and offer several add-on options from underwater photography to aerial add-ons and stylized shoots. We would like to note that there will be an additional 7.712% tax collected and require a 20% deposit to secure your session date.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, we first exchange Q&As with each customer to discuss their vision for the photoshoot. This includes your ideal location as well as your preferred styles. Kelsi will usually schedule a phone call for portrait and couples photography and an in person meeting for weddings. Once the location is decided we'll email you an online client contract and invoice. From there we'll send you a "what to expect" and get ready for your session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In college, Patrick enrolled in multiple photography courses, including two black & white film and darkroom classes. As an avid scuba diver, he initially fell in love with underwater photography, but quickly branched into landscapes, lifestyle, and adventure photography.
