    "I recently decided to surprise propose to my girlfriend while on vacation in Hawaii and hired Bodhi to take surprise photographs of the proposal (on a beach on the North Shore) as well as staged pictures during the sunset after we were finished. I live in California, and Bodhi was willing to talk with me on the phone multiple times to recommend specific perfect locations, the best times for sunset pictures, how to best set up the "sneaky" element of the pictures during the proposal, etc. He was beyond accommodating and a joy to work with. The pictures turned out beautifully. Incredibly professional and artistic - you can tell he really knows what he is doing and has mastered this craft over the years. You can also tell he loves his job - it shows in every picture he takes." -Matt H.
