About Your Kauai Wedding Photographer

Aloha! My name is Hanakapi’ai (pronounced Hana-copy-eye) and I love photography! A little about me personally, I was born and raised on this beautiful island called Kaua’i. I spent my free time frolicking, adventuring, and exploring the lush jungles and exotic beaches. I went off to college in California and returned five years later with an incredible husband. We now have four adorable children and we are loving life!

I began taking pictures when I had my first child, nine years ago. Being that I have the memory of a goldfish, I wanted to make sure to capture my precious moments, so I set to the task of learning the camera.

My knowledge grew, but another occurrence led me to further push myself in photography. My husband is a minister and he began to receive frequent requests from off-islanders to officiate their wedding ceremonies. Many of these couples had very simple weddings and didn’t even hire a photographer, so I would offer, and I began learning and growing by leaps and bounds.

The third occurrence that allowed me to really flourish in my pursuit was when a college friend, who is one of California’s top photographers, came for a visit and took me under her wing. She taught me how to turn my photos into magic and here I am today!

I would truly enjoy working with you to capture your special day in a dreamy way!

Maggie B. Atlanta, GA

Hanakapi'ai was absolutely wonderful! We eloped to Kauai, so we wanted to make sure we had pictures of our ceremony for all of our family to see...and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out! She was so easy to work with and was really intuitive to the style that we wanted. She was also really timely in getting all of the photos to us. I'm so happy that we chose her and have these beautiful pictures to look back on forever!

Jill B. San Diego, CA

I was visiting Kauai with my fiancé for vacation and we wanted to get our engagement pictures taken while on island. After researching several photographers, Hanakapi'ai was my favorite by far. The photographs she presented on her website were beautiful, artistic and thoughtful. Luckily, she had availability during our stay!

I would happily work with her again and would recommend her to any of my family and friends. I only wish she lived in San Diego, so that she could also photograph my wedding!

Thank you Hanakapi'ai (and Nathan)! 🙂
