An exclusive photography adventure event for couples and families

Oahu & Big Island
adventure Photography

Hawaii is one of those dreams that so many of us have dreamt of for years. As travel becomes safe again, why not consider visiting Hawaii to celebrate life, commemorate an important moment, or just because!

Travel can be challenging. That's why I've put together an entirely comprehensive guide for travel, stays, and even places to visit. But it doesn't stop there.

Keep reading!

I'm a wedding and elopement photographer based in Indiana. Over the past few years I've begun to challenge the the way that portraits, weddings, and elopements were captured.

I believe that we shouldn't feel the obligation to only have our portraits taken during times of celebration. We can do it just because we want to do it. But why stop with just photography? Why not celebrate the return to safe travel by visiting Hawaii and join me on a Hawaiian adventure around the island of Oahu or The Big Island?

I'm Nate!

Your Oahu Adventure

Currently, Hawaii requires a negative test before arrival. As 2021 sees more vaccinations and a downward trend of the COVID-19 virus, restrictions may lift further. Currently, a negative test avoids any quarantine requirements.

"What COVID precautions are you taking?"

That is up to you! Both islands are perfect and beautiful in their own ways. Oahu is more western and perhaps more family friendly. The Big Island offers a bit more rugged adventure and more authentic Hawaiian feel. Both are amazing locations and I'll be on both islands.

Which island is best?

I have compiled location stays and recommendations for any inquirers. This is delivered in a digital PDF document along with a more thorough breakdown of this Hawaii photography adventure. There are hotels and private rentals all throughout both islands to suit any budget or need.

Where should I stay?

I'm offering two photography options. Half and full-day adventure coverage. While both islands are finite in size, travel times are taken into consideration and our times together will not be spent 100% being photographed. Think of me like your personal tour guide to both islands. Half-day is 3-4 hours, full day is up to 8.

how much time will we have?

Hawaii feels unattainble for many mainlanders because of travel cost. I've added up the travel cost for 2-4 people flying to Hawaii and you can expect to invest between 3000 - 5000 for a week to visit the islands.

Hawaii is expensive. How much is travel?

Don't you worry! Along with stays, places to eat, and a style guide, I also include a list of fun excursions on both islands that you are budgeted in the total travel cost to visit and stay in Hawaii.

what do we do before or after our adventure?

Yes, of course! However, elopement and wedding photography is a different cost due to the nature of the work. I'll be happy to give you a customized quote if you are interested in eloping on either island!
Learn more about that here!
