Oahu, Hawaii
destination weddings + love stories

BREATHTAKING IMAGEs FOR adventurous COUPLEs, WEDDINGS and elopements

If you've chosen Hawaii as the backdrop in which to tell your love story, you're in the right place. Hawaii, and in particular the island of O'ahu, is known for being one of the most stunning places in the world. But navigating an entire island to find the perfect and most scenic spot for you can be overwhelming.

Fortunately, you'll have me as guide! With extensive shooting and travel experience within O'ahu, I am able to offer insider location knowledge to help you find your ideal getaway experience, and even sneak away from the tourist crowds. 

I'll help you make the most of it!

No matter your reason for visiting, you deserve photos that capture the extraordinary Hawaii magic you're about to experience.

I'm so excited for you to feel the indescribable beauty that Hawaii offers. I'm thrilled you've chosen to give yourselves this once-in-a-lifetime gift. And I'm stoked to lend my experience and skills to create a unique photo adventure just for you.

You'll have access to Oahu's hidden gems that only locals get the chance to experience.

Kind Words

She made our first couple shoot effortless.

Jake + Claire

Kara was absolutely amazing!! My boyfriend and I did our very first couple shoot and she made it so effortless. We had so much fun that he is already wanting to do another. So grateful that she woke up so early to meet us at sunrise at such an amazing spot. 

We are so lucky to have you capture all of our special moments!!!!!!

Sorry it took me all of 10 minutes to respond to these sneak peeks, I was too busy gushing over them to everyone. But seriously, I’m already so obsessed?!?!?! I truly cannot wait to see everything else. You are amazing and we are so lucky to have you capture all of our special moments!!!!!

You made me feel so comfortable
which NEVER happens.

Oh my gosh I love our photos!!! We had a blast too. Garrett even said as we were going home “she’s really good at her job.” And he had fun which is always a plus! You made me feel so comfortable which NEVER happens.

Kara is FUN. I gained a friend when I thought I was just getting a photographer.

Kara is FUN. She'll make you feel comfortable, she'll help you feel non-awkward, and she's really easy to talk to as a person! We wanted a photo session in a beautiful place with someone who made us feel comfortable, so we wouldn't feel like we were doing something significant with a stranger tagging along. It felt more like a group date, and that was perfect. Kara's just great :) And I'm glad I gained a friend when I thought I was just getting a photographer.
