“Christian is amazing! We loved our wedding pictures! He is very patient, creative and fun to work with. My husband does not like taking pictures, but felt really comfortable working with him. He will guide you and provide direction if your not sure what to do. There was such a variety of pictures in the end. I definitely got more than I expected. If you get the opportunity to work with Christian, your going to love his work. He’s so good. My biggest confluct right now, is choosing which pictures are my favorite.”

“We had the pleasure of working with Christian from Kahahawai Photography during our wedding this June in Kauai. Christian was a complete professional, provided a warm & friendly experience and captured every moment for us! He even went out of his way to snap photos off site so we could capture shots that we really wanted in the Hawaiian garden. The photos turned out amazing and we even received our link one week after our event. He is very in tune with “the moment” and always made us feel special and accommodated every request. Thank you KP for capturing our special day!”

“I can’t say enough great things about Christian and Kahahawai Photography!!! I contacted Christian on short notice to take photographs during my proposal to my future wife. I had very little details at the time which made me nervous, but Christian’s calm and professional demeanor made the process virtually stress free. He continuously contacted me via email offering suggestions for location, and time of the proposal, as well asking what angles I preferred, and what type of shots he would be willing to get during sunset. I really appreciated his honesty about how the photos would turn out shooting into the light, and other technical aspects which I had not considered. Once we developed a plan for the shoot, he arrived on time, and met with a friend of mine to coordinate some of the last minute details. I hired Christian for one hour, and when he quoted a price, I was a bit shocked. However, I cross checked his price with hourly rates for wedding and event photographers, and his price was right on par with the others. He ended up spending more than an hour with us taking “secret” pictures of the proposal, and then staged pictures in various locations around Shipwreck Beach. When he sent us the finished product both my fiancé and I were blown away with his work. He is without a doubt worth the money, and with his personality and patience, I can hardly see a way that any customer would be unhappy with his services. He truly represented the Aloha spirt during my proposal, and if he lived on the mainland I would hire him for my wedding. Thanks for everything!!!!”

Plainly put, “Christian is beyond amazing.” He is professional, courteous, friendly, creative, and incredibly talented (etc. etc. etc.). We are SO pleased with all that he did/provided in his photo package + I would say he has gone “above and beyond” to make sure we felt comfortable, had the best backdrop & positioning, and took the shots we wanted, and then edited/returned to us in a timely fashion. I would recommend him to ANYONE needing professional photography services.

“Kahahawai Photography No Ka ‘Oi (The BEST)

DISCLAIMER: I am not your typical bride, I never had big dreams and visions of some elaborate extraordinary day with the giant wedding party, 5 star dinning, spectacular flowers and a symphony orchestra. I also hate taking pictures.

But there was a couple of things that I knew I would not compromise on was getting married on Kaua’i, the island that I grew up on and still consider home and making sure I had photos to one day show my children. (My parents have one picture of their wedding and I always wished to see more) So I was beyond grateful and happy to find Christian with Kahahawai Photography, a Kaua’i based business. #alwayssupportlocal

From the get go Christian was very prompt and timely in answering questions and giving me wedding package options. I also saw his website and he has a portfolio that spands many kinds of photography from birds to brides! I knew if he could make a plant look amazing, I knew he could do the same for my wedding.

The day of the wedding he was on time and was like a ninja in the background. He was so quiet and stealth that he did not distract me or the ceremony but was able to capture such great images with unique compositions. But most of all he made everyone feel super comfortable. He also took family photos, bride and groom pics and some candids.

We got married on Friday the 13th and thought it would be funny to take pictures with props- mask and machete. Christian totally supported our crazy idea and made it come to life beautifully. Some my fave pics are with those funny props juxtaposed against a beautiful beach and sky background.

All in all he was very professional and super easy to work with. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to capture our special day.

I highly recommend Kahahawai Photography! Mahalo piha Christian :)”

“I highly recommend Christian for every bride getting married on Kauai!

The quality of his work is amazing. I had a hard time picking favorites, and could only narrow it down to 100 “favorites.” His turn around time was reasonable, and he even sent us samples to hold us over.

Multiple guests commented on what an amazing job he did covering everything as to not miss a detail.”

“We struck gold!!! Being that my husband and I eloped last minute, we hired Christian on a whim a week before we arrived in Hawaii! Not knowing his work, or hearing/reading reviews, we hired him with fingers crossed! We had a tiny ceremony at Tunnels Beach in the morning. Christian met us there on time with his also amazing and delightful assistant Jen! After meeting the both of them, I was put at ease. We instantly felt comfortable and loved the both of them! He is polite, professional, and so pleasant! During the ceremony it was if he wasn’t even there taking photos. He was discrete and respectful of our space. Amazingly, he captured us so intimately that you could even see my tears! I couldn’t believe how detailed his photos were, being that it felt like he wasn’t even there! After the ceremony we took photos on the beach. He was full of great ideas and gave great direction. He made it fun! He was even open to our ideas too. He took his time and made sure we got exactly what we wanted. We never felt rushed. A few days after our wedding, we got an email with a few photo proof samples. I burst into tears of joy! I couldn’t believe our photos were so beautiful! He captured everything so perfectly and blew away my expectations! Our hallway at home is full of the photos on display. We are going to cherish these photos forever. We plan on visiting the island every year for our anniversary. We are definitly hiring Christian for yearly family photo shoots on our visits. I would absolutely recommend hiring him if you are searching for a photographer for your wedding. You will be so happy that you did. XO Tawnya McMahon

“When my wife and I were looking for a photographer, it was very difficult to find one that we were comfortable with. One of our close friends referred us to Kahahawai photography and it was absolutely one of the biggest help. Christian was very professional and we created a relationship with him that made taking photos a breeze. It is definitely a key ingredient. If your not comfortable then its much harder to capture your precious moments. I recommend anyone looking for a photographer to call Kahahawai Photography and take them up on providing you with your memorable moments. My wife and I will forever be indebted to Christian and his company. Aloha, The Smiths

Hi this is Mitchell/Leianah. We just wanted too say that we saw Christian’s work online and we instantly loved it!!! We gave him a call and asked him if he would do our wedding photo’s and he said yes!!! So we talked about everything we wanted and he was so… passionate too help us with exactly what we wanted. The day off our wedding he was totally on time and was taking pictures from every angle off our wedding and even went out off his way to catch everything!!! Couple days after he was already doing our editing on our wedding pictures. Then after that he called me up and said he mailed us our wedding CDs, Kahahawai Photography Rock!!! The day we got our CDs we went down to take a look and his work blu us away. The photos came out exactly how we pictured it in our minds and we instantly loved it. We where totally in love with his work and didn’t expect anything else but he surprised us with a wedding book off our wedding and that totally jus maid everything worth it.
I Mitchell and Leianah would totally recommend Kahahawai Photography to do our pictures again he totally works with you from the beginning to the end. If you guys want a photographer that is willing too work with you on every single thing PLEASE GIVE KAHAHAWAI PHOTOGRAPHY CALL!
