So happy with the experience!-Wid & LizView Photographer profile
Kazumi was a fantastic photographer. She has a great eye for composition and does a great job giving direction. She helped us stage and photograph a newborn and a 3.5-year-old on a beach - no small feat.

The photos are stunning, and the editing looks very natural. Highly recommended!-BrentView Photographer profile
Had to book a last-minute proposal shoot in Kauai due to a change in travel plans. Matched with Elijah, and he was awesome! Gave me a ton of location recommendations and worked with me to make sure the proposal was a surprise.

Pictures came out amazing, and he gave us great direction on how to pose, where to stand, etc. He even got a few aerial shots for us. Also suggested a few local spots to celebrate, which were fantastic.

Highly recommend for any photoshoot you have planned on the island!-EvanView Photographer profile
Kazumi was wonderful! She did such a great job putting our multigenerational family at ease, while still giving us helpful direction.

The setting was beautiful and Kazumi did an amazing job capturing the natural light. We received our photos quickly and couldn’t be happier.

We all loved Kazumi and would absolutely book her again!-SarahView Photographer profile
Kazumi did a fantastic job! We were on a family vacation to Kauai and she was able to capture beautiful photos of my family of 6 in a short amount of time.

She was extremely kind and patient. I definitely recommend her!-EmmaView Photographer profile
Kazumi was fantastic!! She was so sweet, we had the best time during our shoot and our photos turned out gorgeous!! Totally recommend booking with her :)-KeileighView Photographer profile
I can’t say enough great things about Kazumi. Kazumi is a professional who feels like a friend. She made my fiancé and me so comfortable in front of the camera, which is no small task. She gave the perfect amount of direction while still allowing the shoot to feel true to us.

And the photos, I mean, wow. A friend of mine said the photos looked like they were taken out of a fairy tale, and they do! Could not be happier with this experience, and it’s all thanks to Kazumi!-GabrielleView Photographer profile
We had an amazing experience with Kazumi. She has a true talent and has exceeded all of our expectations.

Kazumi helped us relax and brought our playfulness and energy out of us to capture these beautiful moments for me and my husband.

We are so happy we decided to do this post wedding shoot and so grateful to Kazumi for making this experience unforgettable.-LarisaView Photographer profile
Kazumi did a wonderful job on our honeymoon photoshoot! She was so professional, kind, and efficient.

We ended up at the wrong location (our fault and not through any fault of Kazumi's, her communication was excellent throughout), but she still managed to get a ton of awesome pictures during the shorter timeframe. Would highly recommend her!-AimeeView Photographer profile
Our photo session with Kazumi was amazing! She was very responsive and reliable.

During the photo session, she had great energy and worked well with our kids and the grandparents.

We loved the final photos. She knew how to use the light and surroundings well, making us feel at ease. Would highly recommend her!-ChristinaView Photographer profile
