Aloha! I’m Ikaika, a destination photographer focusing on all things love. From the cliffs of the Na Pali coast to the sands of Tulum, I capture beautiful moments of adventure, laughter, romance, and companionship. With a BFA in graphic design and years of commercial photography experience around the world, I transitioned to wedding and portrait photography in 2015 simply because that’s what my heart said to do: capture authentic moments with wonderful individuals in amazing locations.
My goal is simple: capture authentic life-long memories so you can truly live in the moment. From scouting locations to coordinating with vendors to developing inspiration boards with you, I work to make sure I’m seamlessly in the right place at the right time to capture each moment so you can simply enjoy. So go ahead, kiss under the Costa Rican stars, dance in the Hawaiian rain, enjoy yourself; I’ll make sure you can relive those moments forever.
Before the big day, I take time to get to know you as a couple. We’ll discuss your inspirations, destinations, and likes/dislikes either in-person over some coffee or via Skype, with the goal to know exactly what you are looking for so you can be hands off and worry free. Every couple is unique, with their own story and romantic journey. I’m ready to capture yours.
As equally important as what my services DO provide for you is what they DO NOT provide. I have a very calm demeanor, a strong work ethic, and an innate ability to work intimately with small or large groups. By working closely with you and all involved, I will not provide any unnecessary hassle, uncertainty, or stress, guaranteed.
To book a date, a signed agreement and a deposit is required. Once your date is confirmed, together we’ll fine tune your photographic itinerary with a questionnaire, a Pinterest board, and an in-person or Skype/Facetime meeting.
Because each wedding or event is very unique and different, pricing will vary. Please reach out via email or phone for a price estimate that would best fit your needs.
