➢ Oahu has a wonderful range of great photo locations. There are world famous beaches, mountains, cliffs, parks, tropical gardens, the lava rocks area and much more. So don’t be boring with your photos, get creative and find some stunning photo locations around Oahu! we have listed a huge number of locations great for any wedding or portrait session.
What should we wear to our photo session?
➢ Always wear what’s comfortable and what you you feel really good in.
- Wear something suiting the personality, but also flattering fit, that complements your natural shape from all angles. For example if your do not like the size of your tights or upper arm, I would cover them (three-quarter sleeves, longer dress or pants), rather than hoping for good angle. At the end your want to feel really comfortable during the session and not worry about constant fixing, covering up during the shoot.
- In general light pastel colors photograph well. No logos, busy patterns, big letters, etc.
- Avoid very dark colors.
- It might be windy usually on the beach, so it will be good idea to have options for hair, bring a brush, hair clip, etc.
- Accessories are great. Hat, necklaces, etc, 1 or 2 signature touches without going overboard.
- If you can see through your clothing be sure to bring the appropriate underclothing to wear beneath it.
- The camera will see the wrinkles, so it's best to pick fabrics that will not get super wrinkly during car trip etc. Or have it on hanger in the car and change on the location is another idea.
- Short skirts or dresses are fine, however will limit the posing options, another reason to have an optional outfit for different kind of posing.
- You can also take a look on our galleries on the website to get some ideas.
Am i allowed to bring props to a session?
➢ Yes, you may bring what ever props you like or feel are meaningful to the session.
Can we request special shots, such as jumping, writing in the sand, etc.?
➢ Yes. If you’ve seen any specific photos in my portfolio or online that you like, we are happy to try to recreate them with you. If not, we’ll just do our thing and pose you ourselves.
Can we bring our pets(s)?
➢ Yes. I love when my clients include their pups – they are part of the family!
Do you offer touch ups on our photos?
➢ Yes! Touch ups are included in your session price.
