How do I know we’re a Rae wedding couple?
I would describe my ideal couples as people who are madly in love and want to express that feeling in photographs. They think that love and family is beautiful and value gorgeous, clean portraits of their loved ones. My work is airy but still retains vibrancy that shows off the beauty of whatever landscape you choose for your wedding day.
Can you help me with outfits, my timeline, etc?
Yes I would LOVE to answer questions about what I recommend for outfits for portrait sessions and I’m even working on having a wardrobe of my own to offer for maternity.
- I’m very knowledgeable about wedding day timelines. I have done hundreds of weddings and can help iron out how long what will take and how long we should have set aside for incredible photographs on your wedding day. View my sample wedding day timeline HERE.
I’m visiting the island! Do you have recommendations for where/who/what/when/why in Hawaii?
We get many destination weddings and sessions here in Hawaii and it can be hard to plan from afar. That’s why it’s so worth it to hire a local photographer. I would love to help with choosing the best location, recommend other vendors, and more!
How many photos come with my wedding package?
I average 500-600 photos with an 8 hour package, about 60-70 images per hour.
What time should our portrait session start?
My portrait images are created using gorgeous natural light, so I book sessions during sunrise or sunset time for amazing lighting to ensure your your session light is flattering and beautiful!
What type of equipment do you use?
I shoot with two cameras, two Nikon camera bodies with two memory card slots each to save duplicates of your wedding images on each card! (Talk about making sure your images are saefe!) My favorite lenses are the 35mm 1.4, the 50mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.8, as well as my long lens the 70-200mm 2.8. I also have flash for darker moments like receptions. I use Photoshop and Lightroom for hand editing your images!
Do you have a second shooter?
Yes, I have a few! Second shooters can be added on to your package to ensure that all aspects of your day can be photographed and we don’t miss anything, as well as a great backup.
Do you travel?
Yes! I’m currently based in Oahu, but I am booking on the other islands including Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. I also take weddings in and around LA and California, and I love to book a few weddings in Nashville and Huntsville, AL a year.
How long does it take to receive my images?
Turn around time is an average of 4-6 weeks for your wedding day with a blog preview first, and 1-2 weeks for a portrait session.
