Hawaii elopement photographer


We're Patrick & Kelsi

a husband & wife photography team

So you don't mind getting muddy, sandy, or dunked in the ocean? That's cool — because we don't mind either. In fact, we'll put our heads together and help you plan the dang thing! We're scientists, sailors, and adventurers ourselves. We've trekked to Everest Base Camp, the Salkantay Trail to Machu Picchu, and dove with sharks in the Maldives. We love roughing it in the forest or experiencing true luxury at amazing resorts (and everything in between). We would love to help your throw tradition to the wind and plan something EPIC.

We started our photography business in 2016 when we were both in graduate school, and it's truly blossomed into something we love. It's now my (Kelsi's) full time gig while Patrick finishes his PhD in Marine Biology. We've been honored to be apart of so many beautiful weddings and still tear up during your vows, laugh with you as we explore something epic, and are truly honored to capture these memories for you to remember.

What's an elopement?

Eloping has come along way since drive thru Elvis weddings in Vegas. Eloping is the intentional decision to make your wedding day about the two of you - instead of the performance and production that comes with a large wedding. After photographing over a hundred couples, we've found that the smaller the event the happier the couple.

The sky is the limit when it comes to creating your Hawai'i elopement day, so whether you want a simple ceremony on the beach with up to 25 guests, a private horseback ride on the North Shore, or helicopter ride to the top of Hawai'i's peaks, we'll be there from start to finish. Just let us know you're vision and we'll provide a custom quote.

Frequently Asked Questions

Testimonials from real couples

"Making the decision to elope is not easy for some people. My partners and I especially. There’s a lot of pressure that comes with getting married and a lot of things and people to consider. But since the world wanted to throw us a curve ball my husband and I decided to run away to our favorite place and get married on a beach. Of course when you’re the only ones there, you want to make sure the moments are captured exactly how you want them to be. And that’s exactly what Kelsi and Patrick did. from start to finish they were there to help us make decisions, pick the perfect spot and to just over all make our day run as smooth as possible. They are a light hearted and down to earth couple that will be willing to take on whatever your day brings (while still making it picture perfect) we felt comfortable and relaxed on our wedding day thanks to them. And we recommend them to anyone who is looking to get married in Hawaii . Can’t wait to work with them again, hopefully for our baby moon shoot one day!"
