capturing your story and moments...

HI FRIEND! I'm Kristen Iwalani...

And I am so dang glad you are here. I'm a portrait and destination elopement photographer based in Oahu, Hawaii. Basically, I'm an island girl who wants to go on an adventure with you! I love "talking story" and getting to know people. Especially those "how we met" stories. What can I say, I'm a romantic. If I'm not out adventuring with you I'll most likely be with family and friends, reading a good book, making trouble to my dog, or watching some Japanese anime. 

Wanna know more?

"We absolutely loved our session with Kristen! She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed right away. As people who aren't the most comfortable in front of the camera, Kristen provided tons of guidance and encouragement to be ourselves. She also took my ideas of what I wanted and made them to reality. We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. I highly recommend her."

"You are amazing! From the beginning to end, you had helped me planned this whole session in a short period of time. I couldn't have done it without your help. Derek, being the uncomfortable one, told me the photo shoot exceeded his expectations. He felt comfortable the whole time and we both had so much fun during the whole photo shoot.​
