"Our extended family of 20 people traveled from Utah to vacation in Hawaii. While we were there we wanted family pictures on the beach. Bodhi was amazing!! He was prompt in his communication before the shoot, he was on time, knew right where to go for the best backdrop, patient with all the little kids we had and was very professional. He was fun, kept the little kids excited and got them to smile. He was kind and we all felt very comfortable. We will definitely use Lightness Photography again. Thank you, Bodhi, for an amazing experience!" -Maxfield Family
