  1. #1 Donna Welch Photography

    (83 reviews)

    Denise E.

    Donna was fantastic. We had three families in the session, with small kids. She was great with the kids, including one who did not want his pic taken. The photo book was great and we received the pics in a timely matter. I would highly recommend Donna!

  3. #3 Oahu Pro Photography

    (26 reviews)

    Michael B.

    Middle price range, but upperclass service and results. Bravo Bodhi. This guy loves what he does and it shows. He was so quick with the results, and to be honest, since this was a destination wedding for us, we had no idea where to go. I touched base with Bodhi and he suggested a beautiful location. He had several locations on his website, and this was the one that he felt strongest about. We were a little worried about the weather because we didn't have any backup dates available, but Bodhi reassured us and he was right. The skies were spectacular in Honolulu. He got over 180 great shots for us, so God only knows how many he actually took. He had them up for us to review in 2 days. It was amazing. Believe me, my wife is photogenic, but he actually made me look good. Lots of great close-ups that we never would have thought about. Even some fun photo-bombs with the cool pastor after the ceremony. He is not only a professional photographer, but also a genuinely nice guy. I can't recommend him highly enough!

The photos are top quality and he was extremely proffessional on the day. We're just thrilled that we found Nalunani Photography to capture our special day. Thanks for everything and see you again next year!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Noel Morata Photography

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I love working with clients who are looking for something special or different than the typical presentation. If they have seen my work, then they get a chance to see what type of visuals I can create with a client and develop a look and feel that is specific for that special occasion, portrait session, or event. It's also great working with new clients and helping them create something with their own stamp and story, and I am there to help bring out the best of a photo session that really has an impact and a personal touch. I love to connect, make a difference, and share those special moments through my creativity and experience.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I've always been an independent person and not a corporate type. It has been a natural transition from being a creative person to developing a business that supports the creative process and building a successful business. Part of that was from constant learning, sharing with mentors and having a business background that makes this viable and ongoing direction to create. I love being independent and still working with clients that like my work, creativity, and customer service.

    Donna Welch Photography

    (83 reviews)

    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.

    Creatrix Photography

    (10 reviews)

    I found out about Jenna and Creatrix Photography through Living Social and decided to purchase the package so we could have some beautiful documentation during our trip to Oahu! Throughout the entire process, Jenna was engaging, attentive and professional, suggesting places for the shoot (over the phone) and interacting with our 16 month old like a pro(during the photography session)! She is a natural with a great eye and aesthetic and the rare ability to truly engage and get to know her clients. Our photos were ready for viewing in a short amount of time and each one turned out beautifully. We were visiting from Seattle but if we did live on Oahu we would definitely utilize her talents in the future and suggest that you do so as well, if you're in search of a great photographer! Thank you, Jenna! It was our pleasure to work with you.

  • Lifestyle Photograpy

    Guy Vaught Photography

    (8 reviews)

    Guy is a tremendous photographer and someone that consistently demonstrates caring for his clients. You can tell by the portrait, family and model photography that the people he works with are incredibly comfortable around him and the images are treasured by them for years to come. His lifestyle photography is interesting and it is different than much of the coastal photography out there. Guy sees beauty in things we day day to day and appreciate but often take for granted. His rusty bike lock image is a work of art! It's brilliant. If you have ever surfed the North Shore you know that the surfing community bikes down to their favorite north shore waves. The lock is a reminder to anyone who has ridden a bike to the north shore to surf and his image reminds us of how special the north shore is and how the culture of the north shore includes rusty bikes chained to fences with rusty locks. His landscapes are terrific with palm trees swaying in the wind, Waikiki under night lights and sunsets to die for. Whether you are outfitting a new home or office and need the soothing affect with work from Guy that gives us working environment reminders of the beauty of Hawaii or needing to do a family or model shoot, this "Guy" is your guy! He loves what he does and his passion is clear as day in every thing he does with that camera including delivering a finished product to art collectors and those hiring him on a private shoot that develops happy customers. Work with this "Guy"! He will deliver beyond expectation and with aloha spirit may very well become a friend!

    David Murphey Photography

    (3 reviews)

    We were looking for a wedding photographer to shoot our ceremony at The Royal Hawaiian hotel in Dec 2012. After contacting 3 photographers recommended by the hotel, we did not feel confident in the final photographer's ability to deliver. Unwilling to settle, I performed a Google search for photographers and happened to find Thumbtack. I put in a request for a wedding photographer with just 2.5 weeks to go before our date. David was quick to respond and professional. He provided costs upfront and was very responsive with all of our questions. I was very excited to learn that his work had been featured on The Royal Hawaiian's website and he was familiar with the hotel property. Additionally, we also learned that David does a lot of commercial work for large companies such as Disney and Lexus! David was the only photographer we contacted that would bring an assistant for our short 3 hour shoot. We are so glad that he did because his assistant was doing some crazy things manipulating the lighting and our pictures came out wonderful! David provided our photos via website within 2.5 weeks of our event. He only needed to provide us with 120 photos but he took so many pictures during the event that he threw in an extra 55 photos and we are so grateful. During the shoot, David directed us in a lot of different poses, and since we not naturals at modeling, we were afraid the photos would turn out stiff or awkward. We are amazed at some of the photos and how natural everything looked. We will also be ordering the 50-photo album from David. Although we thought the price for this was very steep, David explained to us all of the work that went into designing and touching up the album that we felt it was worth it. David also told us that since he would be providing us with a high-res disc of all the photos, we could also design the album ourselves and have it printed at a lab of our choice. I had read online about a DIY album and do feel that it is worth it to have a professional do this as this will be a keepsake for life! Because of his openness, I did not feel that he was pushy or trying to sell us on this expensive album. We have learned that the whole album process takes about 4 months. This seems like a long time but I am sure it is standard in the industry - I can't wait to see our final results!

    Marcia Campbell Photography

    (1 reviews)

    Marcia was such a pleasure to work with for our wedding, from planning, to day of, to finalizing our album each step along the way was so easy. We planned a destination wedding and I was nervous, particularly about the photographer. I knew that we had one shot and that this would be what we would have to hold onto our memories. I LOVE LOVE LOVE our photos. They really are works of art, I have shown my online album to family and friends and everyone is amazed at the angles and creativity with which she captured the day so perfectly. Everytime I look through the pictures I see something new that sparks a new memory of the day. Marcia was so patient, fun, and unobtrusive, yet blended so well and worked with our kids and family so easily. She made the day so relaxed and how she is able to see what she sees and captures in her pictures is amazing and so artistic. Definately worth the money and the album that she put together for us saved me so much time and work! She took many pictures and picked the best ones for our album, I only had a few minor edits! She took the time before we arrived in Hawaii to talk with us on the phone to get to know us better and then once we arrived she took the time to sit and meet with us to get a feel for our likes and dislikes based on exampes of her work. She also took the time to do a site visit of the private estate where we had our reception to get a feel for the lighting at the time of day and evening and to get a feel for the location. I would recommend her for ANY occasion!! Thank you Marcia!!!

Around 1996, I started photographing some friend's weddings, and after that, I noticed that I had a good eye for it, and after a few years, I was shooting weddings for some agencies and wedding planners. I love photography, and I love shooting portraits, action sports, weddings, special events, etc. For the last 15 years, I've been working as a photographer, and I have had lots of happy costumers during those years!

    Dawn E.

    Jon took photos of our family of 6 as part of our 25th wedding anniversary celebration in Hawaii. He spent almost 2 hours with us at Ko Olina taking many different types of photos - staged and candids using the beautiful sunset as our backdrop. He provided us with a portfolio of over 150 photos mostly color but some black and white as well. They were all wonderful and many made us laugh. He caught many of the small moments from that night. He was extremely easy to work with. Everything that was stated upfront was true - there were no surprises. I would highly recommend Jon! Well done.

He was incredibly punctual, professional, and the quality of work was exactly what we were looking for. Bernie worked with us for 4 days, and provided a very personal touch to the convention. On top of his kindness and professionalism, he delivered top-notch photos at the conclusion of each day. We highly recommend Bernie for events of any kind, and would certainly hire him again in Hawaii!

    Derrick did a mother/daughter photo shoot in the Honolulu area. He was able to get us scheduled right away. He spent a considerable amount of time trying to get a variety of shots and backgrounds. The weather wasn't ideal so he suggested we meet again another day at a different location at no additional cost to us. Derrick went above and beyond and even created a CD when I had trouble downloading the pictures. He was easy to reach, great to work with, extremely professional and early to both of the photo shoots. My mother and I were very pleased with the photos he took and will hire him again. Thanks for capturing our time together so beautifully, Derrick. It was such a pleasure meeting and working with you and we look forward to seeing you again!
