"Bodhi was so fun to work with and he produced the most amazing photos for our Hawaii wedding!! I should preface this review by saying I usually take terrible pictures, but Bodhi managed to get the best shots of me that anyone has ever taken. He really knows what he's doing! And he had everyone laughing and smiling the whole time which made the photos even better. He is really, really talented. We had such a blast working with him!" - Elena & Jeremy
