Nostalgic Images for every celebration. Adventurous and exciting photoshoots, dreamy photographs, high quality print store.
Be at ease during our time together. I get along with people from all walks of life, all ages and origins.
Dance if you want to. Sing if you want to. Cry if you want to. Laugh when I ask for your serious Vogue face. Don't smile and look at the camera, but close your eyes and breathe deep into the moment.
Find presence and offer it up to the divine, and your images will be authentic and raw.
Nervous in front of the lens? I'll offer up modeling tips, cues, and feedback to keep you confident throughout the whole shoot so you suffer no awkward "I don't know what to do with my hands" moments.
So, why choose me?
Whats the process like?
Photographer, mother, renaissance woman.
Turned on by vintage vibes and muted earth tones, inspired by in-between moments and marvelous minutiae. Join me and find yourself in more than a photograph, but a scene of timeless nostalgia.
Hawaii is one of the most popular destinations in the world for weddings, elopements, honeymoons, and family vacations.
With seemingly endless options for photographers and videographers in Hawaii, the process of choosing the best photographer for you may seem daunting.
When you book me for your shoot or elopement, you receive a luxury experience in a casual package. I see the art in every movement, every wisp of windblown hair and every open mouthed laugh. You will see it too.
For all session photography, you will receive a link to a custom online gallery of 100-300 proofs generally within a week of the shoot. You then get to pick the images you want me to complete.
Depending on the season your gallery should be complete within 3-6 weeks of the shoot.
For events such as elopements, weddings, and births, you'll receive a sneak peek within 24 hours, and the final gallery within 2 weeks. All the best images from the event will be curated and delivered to create a storytelling gallery that leaves no moment behind.
There is so much to be inspired by in this volcanic paradise. Endless opportunities to co-create art with the 'aina. Lava rock tide pools-filled with sea foam, stormy Mauna Kea skies, dazzling Kona sunsets, lush green jungles filled with monstera & wild ginger. Whether our time spent together is out in this playground of an island, or tucked away in your cozy nest, we can create timeless photographs for you to cherish for the rest of your life.
"Let me start off by saying Susanna was friendly, fun and amazing! You add that with her work quality and WOW! It was such an honor to have Susanna cover our wedding day. Thank you so much again! If you're debating on a photographer and you stumbled upon Susanna look no further. Still speechless at our photos."
"I had my first photoshoot with Susanna and didn't know what to expect. I immediately felt like she was my friend and I was able to open up and get beautiful photos that I will cherish forever. She made me feel powerful and beautiful. She was so encouraging, comforting, and has a great sense of humor. Epic experience! Thank you so much! I would refer anyone I know visiting the Big Island to Susanna for photos. You will get top quality images and a fun adventure too!"
"Susanna has an eye to capture anyone at their best, while making the whole experience very fun, memorable and unique. It was fantastic to spend time in a gorgeous nature spot while interacting with kind and knowledgeable local professional! Highly recommend"
"We took our Honeymoon photos while on the Big Island with Susanna and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Not only was she so flexible with our schedule but she also was very knowledgeable of photography which gave us comfort knowing we would get everything we wanted out of our session. She has a way with how she works with couples that made us feel so comfortable we forgot we were taking pictures. Highly recommend Susanna for you photos whether it's for a couple or family she rocks!! Thank you again for everything!"
"Don't look any further because Susanna is the best! She was great every step of the way. From her playful and kind personality to the mastery of her craft- she made our renewal of vows so memorable for us and our ohana. Mahalo nui, Susanna! Best believe we will contact you again for future family pictures!"
