My speciality is Creative Portraiture for families. Another term for this is photo beautification. I make people look amazing, a process that can include body toning, shadow correction, background enhancement, element swapping from one photo to another, and so much more!
Kauai Mornings are usually cooler. Kauai sunsets with a colorful sky are amazing. Bottom line, l produce dynamic photographs that my clients love at all times of the day.
An umbrella is a great looking prop in a photo shoot so having one with you is an awesome idea. Rain is commonplace here in Kauai. But it's not common to have persistent rain. Five minute showers are typical. We get used to them, and gray skies tend to be moody and dramatic. I will shoot in the rain unless it's really bad and then I'll call it a day.
My favorite photo locations are all along our north shore, Kilauea to Ke'e. But I do shoot all over our island.
The time it takes to edit a group photo of eight or ten or fifteen people versus two or four takes much longer. Eyes closed, distracted, blowing a fly out of face, multiplied by as many faces in the shot. It only takes one fly to turn an average 6-8-min photo edit into a 30 minute or even longer edit. With big groups I also need to take way more photos during the session because I might need to borrow the open eyes from one photo and superimpose them onto another photo where her eyes are closed, and I might also need to replace the gaunt expression on Grandpa with a fun expression and make it look as if the photograph was taken that way. So yes, extended family fees are modestly higher.
Not without a second shooter, a licensed drone flyer. Add-on fees start at $500
You might want only a single Kauai family photograph or a few but when I turn up for a photo session, I'm yours. I don't double book. So you'll receive more photographs than you think you'll need, but you might just be thrilled!
From under $500 - $6900 (that’s a big spread but I do all sorts of shoots). Email / text for comprehensive fee / options menu email@example.com
To hold the date you pay up front a deposit, $100 for Kauai photography sessions up to $600, $150 up to $1000, $300 over $1000. Your balance is due on or before the shoot day. It’s very important to make your balance payment timely to ensure a speedy turnaround, typically 2-5 days to get your edited photos/ video.
You'll download your Kauai photography full resolution digital images from a private gallery I will make for you, linked to your email. So it's very important once you book to give me your email address and your mobile phone number.
Typically 2 to 5 days for 1-2 hour sessions, 1-2 weeks for multiple hour events.
I'm sorry no for a couple of reasons. First, I do not give my clients unedited photos, and thus for me to supply proofs would require editing all the photos which can easily amass to hundreds of photos. Also, the back and forth for choosing would make the speedy turnaround I'm known for impossible. Thank you for your understanding.
Even if you know how to work with Raw files, my images are complete once they've been edited by me. So I do not part with RAW images. I thank you for your understanding.
Shared ownership. You and me. You have the right to print, sell, publish, etc. When you post on social media I would appreciate being tagged.
Kauai surprise proposals? Absolutely. You can either tell your significant other you're having a photo shoot and you'll pop the question during (couples session fee); or arrange with me a rendezvous spot where you'll propose and I'll just appear and take photos (surprise proposal fee).
I'm flexible on swapping dates, times, when I can. I’ve also cut back deposits for hold-the-date. If it's a total rain out and I call it, you get the deposit back. For a cancellation due to "unable to attend" if I'm able to rebook the time, I'll refund the deposit.
