My fiancé and I had to cancel our previous engagement photos due to covid so I booked this session with Ranae to make up for it and she was absolutely fantastic! Neither one of us had ever done anything like this and I must admit were a little awkward in the beginning but she made us feel so comfortable and gave us such great guidance that it felt very natural and comfortable. She had interesting stories to tell about the islands history along the way and overall just an amazing experience! We had way more poses and backgrounds than I expected and I can’t wait to see the final results although I feel I know they will be incredible just by how I felt taking them.

Ranea was an absolute delight! The photo tour was great because she very fun to hang out with. She shared stories, local tales, and more places to explore on the big island. I enjoyed the time on the beach with her. And the photos were amazing! Would highly recommend!

Ranae is amazing and extremely talented. She completely exceeded all expectations. She was quick to respond and squeezed in a time that worked for us even though she was booked up for the week. She had clear instructions on what to expect for the day, and how to meet up with her. I am very awkward when I know I’m being photographed and Ranae made me feel at ease and captured amazing shots where I somehow looked natural. The 6:30am start time was a little rough, but completely worth it for the views. The early shoot let us capture sunrise and have the beach to ourselves. Ranae adhered to all COVID guidelines. I plan to use her again for sure! Great value and speedy with getting photos back too.

This whole experience was incredible; just so easy and fun!!! Ranae is wonderful! Very knowledgeable of the area and professional, while also being incredibly sweet and comfortable to work with! She was careful with COVID safety precautions and made the whole process easy and fun! This was a maternity photo shoot with my husband and I, and she was very thoughtful, kind and patient in helping us pose to get the right shots! I can’t say enough how comfortable the whole experience was, and even being in the beginning of my third trimester she made me feel so beautiful and cared for! I enjoyed every minute! I highly recommend this for anyone considering doing professional photos in Hawaii!!! The entire experience was a dream, and I cannot wait to see the results!

If your wondering why Ranae has you meet so early and it might put you off because its so Damn early here is why... The spot is amazing but its also very popular so the earlier the better for those amazing beach photos... plus lets not forget those beautiful sunrise colors!!! I was also lucky to have a nearly full moon so both moon and sun was captured in my photos. She is also very good at directing you to get that perfect photo, definitely worth every penny :)
