Congratulations on your upcoming special day!

I know how important it is to find the perfect photographer who takes the time to get to know you and guide you through all the little details, so that you can relax and cherish every moment.

When I married my husband 11 years ago, I was on your side of the lens (if only I’d known then what I know now!), so I know how it feels preparing for your special day—especially if you’re not local to Hawaii. That’s why I’m proud to deliver a photography experience that ensures you are cared for throughout the planning process, relaxed and comfortable on the day, and absolutely thrilled with the final editing. Because you deserve nothing less! 

riginally from California, I moved to Maui with my husband 9 years ago. And my goodness, I can't even begin to describe how much we LOVE living in Maui! The island inspiration, combined with my new “Mom” status, led me to photography, and I’ve never looked back since. It’s such an honor to document love stories here in paradise, to be The Knot’s 2021 Pick for The Best of Weddings, and the choice Hawaii photographer for couples who adore classic, timeless photography that tells their own, unique love story.

words from past clients


I am so thankful I found Jenny’s work on The Knot! I absolutely love her style of photography and our photos look like a real life fairytale! I am so impressed with her work and she truly is a Wonder Woman behind the lens! She is very detail oriented which any bride can appreciate - she was making sure my dress, veil and hair were always in place! Throughout our session she made my husband and I feel so comfortable. She was able to capture our natural being as well as some gently guided poses. I highly recommend going to multiple locations and following Jenny’s recommendations. It was our first time in Maui so we had no idea where we would want photos taken. I simply told Jenny where we would be staying and she made suggestions from there. Working with Jenny was so easy and fun! I cannot thank her enough for our gorgeous honeymoon photos...we will love them forever!!

My husband I had our honeymoon in Maui 2 days after our wedding. I had done some research on finding a photographer in Maui to capture us as newlyweds in the most picturesque of places. There were so many options to chose from but we decided on Jenny because we love her light, airy, romantic aesthetic. We went with the Love Collection and it was one of the best investments we've made. This is a honeymoon splurge that I know my husband and I will be able to look back on and cherish for years to come. My only regret is not adding on the 1 Minute Highlight Video Reel as I know that would have been just as beautiful as the pictures!

Jenny was a DREAM to work with! I wish I always felt comfortable in front of the camera as I do when Jenny is shooting! She asked us which side we preferred (a big deal to me, I definitely have a side that I like more), she has multiple cameras (so it takes less time from you and you're not having to hold your poses awkwardly as she changes her lenses all session long), and she was very prepared (she brought clear umbrellas for us to use in case it rained during our shoot). Additionally, she helped us prepare for the shoot by letting us know how we should dress, how we should style our hair, etc. Jenny is the utmost professional, responding quickly to emails and she was very timely with the delivery of the photos. I couldn't ask for more!

Look no further! You have found the best Hawaiian Islands photographer. Jenny was accommodating, prompt, gave helpful tips and had great ideas/poses for our wedding portraits. We get compliments ALL THE TIME on our photos. They’re breathtaking and make me cry! She captured such beautiful memories for us. We eloped so the 3 people that were there (minister, Jenny and her assistant) were special and shared a special time with us. Mahalo Jenny we love you!
