We have a secret - we might be a bit rough and weathered on the outside, but inside we're all ooey-gooey for lingering glances and passionate kisses! And we have a particular soft spot for surprise proposals. Oahu couples photography covers all the ways we express our love and commitment to another person - from engagement portraits, vow renewals, anniversaries and surprise proposals to romantic honeymoon's. Couples photos sessions are on location, at the beach, a local park, urban street or any other beautiful setting you would like.

Deposit & Session Reservation
A deposit is required to reserve your romantic couples photography session. However, the deposit is 100% refundable if canceled more than 72 hours before your scheduled session. The deposit can be paid on our Booking page.
Oahu couples photography session locations can be nearly anywhere on Oahu (we also serve ALL the Hawaiian Islands!) We know lots of wonderful places, yet we're always open to new adventures and new ideas. A small travel fee applies for Hawaii couples photography sessions on the neighboring islands of Maui, Kauai and Big Island. Please see our Maui Family Photographer page for couples portraits on Maui.
Refunds & Weather
Refunds are NOT given for anything beyond our control - like weather, wind, sunburns, rain, wet clothes, etc. Rescheduling due to weather is at our discretion only - but don't worry, we want awesome photos just as much as you do so we'll always do our best to work around inclement weather. In fact, we like slightly disturbed weather...it makes for more beautiful images! Worried about less than perfect conditions? Read our blog post!
After The Session
After your session, your Oahu couples photographer will lightly edit all your images for maximum beauty and then upload them to an online gallery for viewing and print ordering. We will then schedule a personalized Review & Ordering consultation with you. During the consultation (in front of your computer), you'll be able to view and select your prints. Once you've decided on the prints and sizes you'd like to order, we will do a final touch up edit on your selected images before sending them to the printer.
Besides the usual prints, there are many other great products that you may enjoy, such as custom print collages (see image below), canvas fine art, albums and photo books.

"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.
