Experienced in Hawaii Wedding Photography and Fine Art
I shot my first wedding in 1998 and have had hundreds of happy customers since then. I have a 4 year college degree in photography, I have shot hundreds of weddings here on Oahu and all the neighbor islands. When I am not shooting weddings I work on my art. I've been living and breathing photography since I got my first professional camera in 1993. It's not just a job for me-- it's a passion.
When you search for a wedding photographer you will find prices all over the map. My approach to business is to provide a solid value at a reasonable price. All of the prices are upfront without any hidden cost. I shoot every wedding personally and work hard at every wedding I shoot. The foundation of my packages is my decade of experience shooting weddings but I think you will find that the album/print packages include a generous amount of prints at a reasonable price.
Experience and value are nothing if you don't like the photographers style. I've been in the wedding business long enough to see many trends come and go. My approach to wedding photography is to avoid the trends and focus on a classic style that will look as good in 60 years as it does today. I really focus on capturing the real emotions of the day. Nothing cheesy or overdone here. I like to shoot a lot of candid and photojournalistic style photos. I still take all the family group shots and have no problem posing the two of you together. I like to keep my posing natural-- like something you would have done on your own-- adjusted slightly so it looks perfect for the camera. My goal is to capture the true beauty of the day.
Full High Resolution Files on DVD
If I were hiring a photographer, the first thing I would want to know is whether the negatives/original files are included in the package. These pictures are going to be meaningful to your children and grandchildren. You need to have the means to make another album if anything were to happen to yours. The main reason photographers keep the original (high resolution files) or negatives is because they are planning on making money from reprints after the wedding. I'm a photographer-- not a salesman. Every one of my packages has everything you will need included-- no upselling later.
Look forward to hearing from you,
Here's a few quotes from some email I got permission to put on the website.
"We really enjoyed meeting you and having you as our photographer. It’s quite a gamble when you make arrangements from afar and we were very happy with you. You are very professional, fun, and everyone felt at ease. Truthfully, I have never liked getting my photo taken but it was a special day and you made the photography fun." --Karen Kelley
"I am so happy with these! Oh my gosh, some of them had me laughing out loud (IE: jumping on Beau's back and the hammock photos) and others are really sweet and genuine. We cannot thank you enough for making this day special for us. We will truly never forget it! We will certainly recommend you whenever we get the chance for friends/relatives visiting Hawai'i. --Valerie Crawford
Adam definitely added his unique sense of creativity and style to our wedding photos. He was able to capture the most important day of our lives perfectly. We cannot wait to show our family and friends. We would highly recommend Adam! --Steve and Erin
