You are unique. Your laugh, your smile – is distinctively you. Your story is one of a kind and your photos should be too. You don’t want just ordinary photos. You want pretty, but you want unique.  You want WOW!  Your photographs need to capture your special moment in time so well, that you can feel that moment all over again every time you look at them.

Whether you want to elope, have an intimate wedding or just want special photos of you and your loved one(s), I'll work with you to create the kind of images that tell your unique story and show your one of a kind personality. We’ll keep the process easygoing and fun. When you are relaxed, the photos will show your true personality and genuine smiles. None of the fake "camera smile" that you get when people are uncomfortable. Whether you need to capture your engagement photos, a surprise proposal, wedding or just a family gathering, Beyond the Box Photography will give you the best photos and the best experience possible.

Hawaii Destination Wedding Photographer


If you two could do anything you wanted for one whole day... what would kind of day would you create? From the time you got up, until you went to bed... what would that day look like?

What would the view be outside? What season would it be? Where would you want to explore? What activities would you want to do together? What would you eat & drink?

Full blown wedding or elopement?  Bridesmaids? Groomsmen? Destination? A beach ceremony at sunset or mountain top? 

Start with these questions when you start planning your big day. This ONE day will be a memory you relive over and over. 

The day that starts the adventure that you’ll have for the rest of your life deserves its story told. It’ll be your anniversary every year. However you envision your perfect day—every moment of your wedding is beautiful and deserves more than an hour or two of “quick pics.” 

As your Big Island photographer, I get to know you as a couple and will help you bring your dream of this day to reality.  I am a resource during your planning process and will help guide you through the biggest adventure of your lives. And when that big day arrives, I will capture your story creatively so that you can relive those memories every time you look at your photos. 

Every elopement and wedding includes:

  • ALL edited photos at High Resolution delivered via digital download
  • Location Scouting and Customized Recommendations
  • Timeline and Planning Guidance
  • Online Gallery
  • Highlight Reel
  • Customized creation of any prints, products and albums you may want.

Let’s get in touch with each other and create an amazing adventure together.

As a Hawaii elopement photographer, I can offer unique & customized location suggestions if you need ideas! There are endless stunning spots to elope on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Hawaii Destination Portrait Photographer


There are moments in everyone’s life that we want to remember.  Engagements, anniversaries, that first maternity photo or even just that super special vacation.  When you go to look at those photos years from now are you going to go digging around looking for your vintage iPhone from 2018 and a power charger so you can relive those memories and end up crying instead because you can’t get the phone to turn on?   I hope not.

Most of my clients are going to be able to see their photos in their photo books or on the framed photos hanging on the wall.   Before you know it, everything has changed because that is just the nature of life.

People put a lot of work into finding a wedding photographer because they have to. They know that day only happens once.   But the same is true for every occasion, even every day. Our children are only young once. We have a 10th anniversary only once. We aren't getting any younger. They aren't getting any littler. It's all flying by at a breakneck speed.   

Standard Portrait Session

These are the sessions we do at a park, a beach or a family home.  Someplace beautiful or meaningful that you get to dress up in something flattering and comfortable. With the sun shimmering all around us, you hang out. I tell you what to do. 

Even the guys do OK with this because I'm not into super corny shots.  If you can walk, spin and tell your right from your left, you can do this. 

I fall over things just to get a real smile. I do this for you. Not because I'm clumsy or anything. 

Prices start at $479 for a full session and $325 for a mini session.

Adventure Sessions

For engagements, couples, and anniversaries.  Typically not a session that you take your great grandma to.   

These are epic photoshoot adventures.   We hike somewhere really awesome (maybe the lava field, a mountain top or a secluded beach).   We have a great time taking one of a kind photos.  I will still tell you what to do.  And I may still fall over things to make you smile – but I promise not to fall in hot lava or off a mountain. 

Prices start at $679

Hawaii Conceptual Portrait Photography

Concept Art Photography – 
because everyone has a story to tell.

Whether that story is based in reality or from the depths of your creativity it doesn’t matter. This is no way near a typical photo session. It is telling your story visually – creating art.

 Your Concept Art Photography session will help you take your concept or theme and turn it into a creative session that will showcase it. From finding the perfect location, creating storyboards, and wardrobe design, I will help every step of the way to create the perfect visual story. These concept art photography sessions are tailored to each person and the story that they want to portray and tend to be a whole lot of fun! This is a creative experience you will never forget!


Prices will vary based on the complexity of the project. Contact me to discuss your creative vision.
