    "Kelsi and Patrick are the perfect wedding photographers and you MUST hire them for your wedding."

    Kelsi and Patrick ARE AMAZING!! I don't even know where to start. My first contact with them let me know they are the photographers to go with. They offer so many options at affordable prices. Communication and responsiveness was very clear and immediate. They provide you with an amazing questionnaire that helps you to navigate through the process along with extensive information on their website. Our initial meeting with them put us at ease knowing we were in the most capable hands ever. They literally think of everything and make sure you have the most beautiful photos and best day ever. They even helped me to find our floral, make up, and DJ vendors. Kelsi and Patrick are the perfect wedding photographers and you MUST hire them for your wedding. They will NOT disappoint!!

    "Such a pleasure!"

    was looking to surprise my wife with 5 year wedding anniversary pictures since we eloped and weren't able to get any at the time. I didn't know what to do or where to begin. So glad I found Kelsi and Patrick! They did not make it hard at all! They were very professional, energetic and fun! My wife and I were able to be ourselves, have fun and get the best quality pictures we have ever seen! If you're looking to hire someone who makes you feel comfortable and catch the feeling of your relationship, you should really think about Kelsi and Patrick! You will not regret it!

    "I can’t say enough great things. Hire them! You won’t be disappointed."

    Kelsi and Patrick are the dream team especially for destination brides. They were very responsive and timely with the sneak peek photos and our engagement photos. We were so impressed with their talent and personalities that we hired them for our wedding months later. And again, they were punctual and amazing to work with. They came to our walkthrough the day before the wedding and made sure we felt comfortable with everything. We were running behind schedule on the wedding day and they were able to adjust things so that we didn’t have to sacrifice on any of the photos we wanted. I wish they lived locally because we would use them all the time! They are reasonably priced too! I can’t say enoug

    "They have provided us with photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives."

    They were like old friends who were helping me pull off this elaborate proposal plan. Kelsi and Patrick made me and my fiance’s day exceptionally amazing!

    Kelsi and Patrick’s professionalism is just amazing. My fiance is never comfortable with photographers but Kelsi made sure she was comfortable and made sure it was her day and the focus was on her as it should be for a girl on a day as such! They are just amazing people and feel like great friends that you never had in a far away place!

    In conclusion, nothing I write or say here can truly explain how great they were. If you ever bump into their service, HIRE THEM! That is he best decision you will ever make!

    "This couple don't just take photographs, they truly capture moments."

    I can't say enough good things about them because everything about the photoshoot was an experience I get to KEEP IN MY HEART FOREVER, and well I have photos that will last for a lifetime to share with my loved ones.

    I loved the service, the experience, the end results which are basically pieces of art. Everyone close to us that sees our photo session pictures can't stop expressing how much they love them. I am so thankful for them for giving me this unique way of remembering so beautifully this day that meant the world for me. THEY MAKE ART.

    "Absolute perfection."

    Working with Patrick and Kelsi was AMAZING. My spouse and I wanted to make our elopement an adventure and get married on a remote trail with a mountain vista. I suspect other photographers would have told us we were crazy or encouraged us to pick a road-side vista. But Patrick and Kelsi were totally up for the adventure and were essential in making our dream-elopement happen. They helped us find a location, hiked in the 2 miles with us, and captured our intimate elopement in the most beautiful spot. We also adventured with them for some pre-elopement photos - again, to a spot that blew us away and exceeded our expectations. They were very comfortable to work with, very responsive, creative, and personable. Their work is worth every dollar and then some. Having them as our photographers was the best decision we made. They truly went above and beyond in every aspect of our elopement."

    "I wouldn’t have wanted to book with anyone else."

    Patrick and Kelsi were so amazing to work with! They made us feel so comfortable throughout our whole shoot! We were able to get sneak peak photos the morning after our shoot and the rest of our photos turned out gorgeous! I wouldn’t have wanted to book with anyone else.

    "This couple deserves more than 5 stars, they are beyond excellent!"

    They are the sweetest people, they have everything organized and ready, while making you comfortable in front of the camera quick! The pictures are stunning due to their natural talent and hard work. They listen to your vision while exceeding all expectations. I cannot talk about them enough. Use them for your special day and/or event, they will capture those precious moments!

    "Absolutely INCREDIBLE experience!"

    First dance photo at Hawaii Wedding Reception at Kualoa Ranch

    Kelsi and Patrick are an awesome team. I have never had photos taken of me professionally, so I was a little nervous that I would be “awkward” or not know how to pose. Those worries were eased when Kelsi and Patrick suggested poses for us. We purchased the wedding package where we took engagement photos included. They are very good at what they do. They have a skill that is so unique and they were able to catch us in candid and fun moments. I don’t think I stopped laughing and smiling the entire time because we had so much fun! My fiancé and I wanted to incorporate a surfboard because we both love the water. Patrick went in the water with us and suggested poses and at one point, we had a turtle swim under us! (We didn’t know until after our edits came out). For those of you like me, who sit counting the minutes to see the photos, don’t worry because they send you a sneak peak of a few pictures just a few days later! And then the entire gallery is out really quickly! I am looking forward to our wedding photos, and I plan to stay in contact for future shoots I may want to have! Thanks Patrick and Kelsi! You two rock.
