Hi I'm david, your Kauai, Hawaii Photographer


About Me

Aloha. I’m David, a professional Kauai photographer. All of my photo packages come with beautifully edited photographs—I typically spend 6-7 hours post producing a 1-hour photo session) making my subjects look their best. This can include slimming and beautification (if desired) and removing other beachgoers and objects like beach debris that tend to make the photos look like snapshots rather than portraits. I've been a pro photographer for 30 years.

We wanted some beautiful photos to capture our honeymoon and David definitely delivered! We had a one-hour photoshoot in Hanalei Bay and David was so kind, truly let us express ourselves, and had so many creative ideas for the photos. The photoshoot was fun and peaceful and the photos are even better! We love our photos. David really understands light and framing. Couldn't recommend him enough! -Mafalda

A photographer back home suggested we capture our vacation with a photographer! This was a family picture shoot. We have not taken one in years - and I really want to capture a very relaxed moment as we have way too many things going on through school and work at home. The photos and they are WONDERFUL. Especially loved the ones of the kids individually - WOW. The one on the log with the pier is my favorite! Thank you, again and again. -Malinda

We were on our Babymoon and wanted to remember this special time in our lives. My husband and I were on our Babymoon and wanted to remember this special time together. We decided to get some pictures at our favorite beach. We are so glad we decided to get photos. Our photographer, David Marsh was easy to work with and captured some amazing photos. You can tell he was very experienced. My husband and I were really impressed with his top-notch skills and the whole experience overall. Thank you, David and Local Lens for capturing this special time in our lives. -Amy

We wanted nice professional photos we could print and display at our house. David was very punctual. He took extra care and time to make sure he got shots that he was satisfied with. He was very patient and friendly with us. Shooting a family with a young toddler can be difficult but he was amazing! The photos turned out beautiful and he got them to us in just 2 days! -Van

To capture the entire family all together. I have adult children as well as one still at home, so when I get them all together I want to take advantage of getting as many photos as we can. So we hired David through local lens while on vacation in Kauai, and I couldn’t be more pleased! The process of finding him was easy through local lens and communication was great. But the best part was David. He was absolutely amazing! Encouraged us to try new poses and combinations of locations we wouldn’t have thought of. He highlighted the beauty of our surroundings while keeping the family as the focus. He was creative, happy, and really seemed to love what he was doing. Our photos turned out beautifully, and I couldn’t be more pleased! -Sheila
