We are headed to Hawaii for vacation in mid-June. We just got engaged in April and thought it would be fun to get some engagement photos done while we were in Hawaii. We’ll be in Oahu and Maui.
Any recommendations on a reasonable good photographer – I was thinking ~$300 for a few digital photos we can use for our Save the Dates, etc.?? I’m looking for someone who has that eye for detail and cleans up the photos afterwards.
Most the photographers from where I live throw in the engagement session with the wedding package. We’d really like to get it done in HI to do something different but it needs to be affordable.
Any suggestions are welcome!
Thanks so much!

Honestly the best thing you can do is google “Hawaii Wedding Photographers” and find someone you like. Definitely keep in mind, the average cost of an engagement session from a good professional is in the $500 range. Not to say you won’t find it cheaper but definitely look at their portfolio.

If you are going to Maui, there is a great photographer name Kaua http://kauaweddingphotography.com/ I am using him for our upcoming wedding, and my friend has just received her package from him and the photos are unbelievable. They did an informal day shoot with him and she said they went to amazing sites in Hana that only locals would know. She said felt more like a day trip with a new friend than a photoshoot. Have fun!!

My FBIL and sister are actually living in Honolulu right near Waikiki. They are a photography team starting out and are looking for clients to build up their portfolios. They have done a couple engagement shoots and a wedding. Their work is actually really good and because they are starting out, I bet $300 would be possible. PM me if you are interested in his name and contact info.
