Eye Expression Photography bio picture

    Welcome to Eye Expression Photography's Blog. We are passionate about telling your story, whether a wedding, a family portrait, or another special event in your life.

Portraits can be fun

Portraits can be fun is the mindset that I try to bring to my portraits.  I keep my families and couples moving from place to place and try to vary the poses and activities.  I find that this keeps everyone’s interest and allows folks to get loosened up.  We usually try to do some walking, standing, sitting and even some silly poses like holding a boat.

Wedding Photographer Hilton Waikoloa

The Hilton Waikoloa is a wonderful place for a wedding.  There is so much variety on the grounds from a chapel, waterfall, large open grassy areas, beautiful ocean views, palm trees, plants and flowers.  This couple was married on the Bay Side Lawn.  They had a bamboo arch and rose petals scattered on the grass.

The cake cutting and champagne toast were done right after the ceremony outside the chapel overlooking the ocean.  The couple even did their first dance on the patio of the chapel.

Candid Moments during a Family Portrait Session

There is an option during your family portrait session and that is to capture candid moments.  Some families prefer to only capture posed images and some families like the idea of also capturing some fun moments during the shoot.  If you are interested in candid moments just let me know before the shoot and I can be on the look out for moments.

This family wanted in particular to capture some moments between their daughter and her grandmother.  During the hour shoot there were a few times when grandma and grand daughter were looking for shells together.  Knowing in advance that they wanted these moments capture helped me to keep an eye open for them and they also tried there best to put them in a good position for that to happen.

Big Island Wedding Photographer at the Royal Kona

Big Island Wedding Photographer Eye Expression Photography captured this beautiful wedding at a private home Hualalai mountain just off Kaloko Drive.   The bride got ready at the house and then the ceremony was held on the back lawn.  It was an intimate and beautiful ceremony site.  Orchids were placed on the stepping stones and around the ceremony site.

Photos of family and the bride and groom were taken at Old Airport Beach Park, one of my favorite locations in Kona for portrait and wedding photography.

After photos on the beach everyone headed to the Royal Kona Resort for the reception. Mele’ uhane provided the music and did a wonderful job as well.
