Chris is THE BEST - BOOK THIS IF YOU HAVE TIME - OMG!!!! You will NOT regret booking this experience. Our photographer was Chris and he did go above and beyond to make our first trip to Hawaii memorable. He took us to places that we wouldn't have known about; he brought the most beautiful dress for my daughter to wear, and made her feel like a princess. My husband and I are a little older and couldn't make it to the lower water falls areas but he took us to a smaller waterfall for spectacular shots. Our favorite spot was Poipu beach. Then he had a very quick turn around on getting our photos back - we love them all. There were lots of other things that we liked about Chris - he gave us food recommendations; history of some of the trees and plants and he spoke to the Asian residents in their language and had the whole group laughing and cutting up. This was one of the best things we've done to make this trip memorable. You won't regret it. And I am very "picky"

Way more than just pictures… truly an ADVENTURE!!!!! - First of all, Chris, our photographer, was waaaaayyyy more than just our photographer…. He was one of the most knowledgeable guides, food experts, and took my family on one of the most memorable adventures we’ve ever had!!! (And photographed the whole thing while we were at it!!!). Not only did we get to see beaches that there was no way we would find ourselves on vacation, but we trekked through beautiful scenes and adventures through great hikes that landed us at the most beautiful waterfall I’ve seen up close and personal! My kids (both teens) had an absolute blast including a stop to get traditional Hawaiian shave ice during our glorious tour. Chris was absolutely delightful, great communication (I contacted him the day before to make sure we were prepared in terms of outfits for the photoshoot). He was very thorough, very friendly, treated us like we were his family he hadn’t see in ages! I HIGHLY recommend this! Don’t even hesitate you won’t regret not only the experience, but the photos that come along with the experience!!! Best thing we’ve done on this island!!! And I have the photos to prove it!!! :-)

Fun with kids - This was our first trip to Kauai so wanted to explore the island with my two young boys. This experience exceeded expectations! Our photographer/guide Elijah took us all over and was so knowledgeable about the flora and fauna native to the area. My sons were fascinated by the landscape explored and the plants like the Hila hila that we saw. So awesome!

BEST decision we ever made! - I can't put into words how much this shoot meant to me! We've never had family photos done and this was the 1 request I had for my family. Elijah was our photographer and from the second I picked up his phone call the day before the shoot, until the last photo was shot.. he was AMAZING!!! He had all the ideas for great poses and made sure we were comfortable and if we had any needs that weren't met. Location was exactly what I was imagining. I can't say enough about our experience!!! DO IT!!!! This will be the memories I look back on as my kids get older!! Thank you Elijah!!

Fabulous experience - Jen was a fabulous guide. She took us to beautiful locations and allowed us the freedom to choose what was best for our family. She was patient and friendly. I would highly recommend her for families, couples, and any level of adventure you are up for!

More than a photo shoot! - Both Chris and Eli were amazing to work with. Chris was was very responsive when we had to reschedule our shoot and Eli met us at our hotel on time and took us to some of Kauai's most hidden gems. We knew Eli was the right guy for us as soon as we said we wanted to jump into the ocean for photos and he jumped in with us, he is not afraid to get wet or dirty for the perfect shot. My personal favourite location was a private 120 foot waterfall which had Eli not setup ropes to hike down, myself and my fiancé would've never attempted. Not only is Eli a great photographer with tons of experience, he is super fun and would consider him a friend. Me and my fiancé are spontaneous and we enjoyed not knowing all the details of the shoot prior but if you’re unlike us, reach out to the team and I’m sure they will give you the details you’re looking for. PS thanks for the amazing recommendation ;)

Photographer is great, don't do the "10 minute scramble" - We absolutely loved the photographer! Great photo pose suggestions, he was super friendly, and all the edited pics turned out great. The places we got to see were beautiful as well! Our favorite spot was the beach! A word of caution: We were offered the opportunity to do a short hike at the beginning of the tour what was described as a "10 minute scramble" to a waterfall. The waterfall was beautiful, but unfortunately it was so steep and muddy to get to it took our group almost 2 hours. At this point our hair and makeup were ruined, we were covered in sweat and mud, and we only able to make it to 1 more spot for photos which was a huge bummer. The waterfall was gorgeous, but if we could do it again we would have skipped this portion or left it for the last stop.

Great session but still waiting for photos - I really don’t like giving negative reviews and really, really hope someone reaches out to me about the second portion of our Adventure photography session. Our photographer @portraitnani was excellent. He took great care with our family of seven which ranged from a 3 year old to a 74 year old. He found locations that suited a range of mobility concerns which took extra time but we never felt rushed. He educated us about the local and finished off our excision at a local Hawaiian Ice shop. :) Sadly, it’s been two weeks and we haven’t received any photos. I like doing behind the scenes shots so captured a few of him capturing the family and, again, he was great! Rated things lower because as of this review there are no professional photos to which to rave about. :( Again hoping we get the photos so I can update this to the 5 star review that the photography deserves.
