The Karma Hill Photography Team

I cultivated an amazing team of professional Hawaii Photographers in Maui and Oahu who share my vision of lovely light captured moments and amazing service. 

No matter which one of our photographers is behind the camera, the images and experience will be amazing! We are one of the few photography teams in Hawaii with a full time professional editor on staff who is an expert in the field.  Each image we edit is professionally reviewed before it gets released to our clients to ensure it fits with our brand and quality standards. We all have a passion for beautiful photos and we look forward to capturing your special moments on Hawaii! 

Karma

Hi! I'm Karma (yes that's my real name). I'm the owner and founding photographer. I have been married for 16 years to Steve, the love of my life and business partner. We moved to Maui from Seattle in 2006, I still can't get over the fact that we get to live here! I am a mommy to two amazing little boys and I love being the queen of my household. I love bargain shopping for clothes, then spending way too much money on food and wine. I am addicted to staycations and island hopping, my second favorite island is Oahu (AKA the island with dim sum and Nordstrom Rack). Chocolate, Target, gel nail manicures and binge worthy Netflix series are my guilty pleasures. I am totally un-athletic but love trying new fitness trends. I couldn't get by without my iPhone and I have to lecture myself not to Instagram and drive. I love my job, I love the people I work with and I can't wait to learn more about YOU!

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT FROM OTHER MAUI PHOTOGRAPHERS?

Our Philosophy

When I first started Karma Hill Photography, I was a one woman band. I did everything: marketing, answering phone calls, shooting, editing, taxes, you name it! I quickly realized that my quality of work went waaay down when I was burning the candle at both ends and editing into the wee hours of the morning. So I cultivated an amazing TEAM of professionals to make sure that each business area was given the attention it needed to be the best. With a full time photo editor, office manager, marketing team and some awesome accountants, our team of Maui photographers get to do what we love the best, which is capturing amazing images for our clients!!

With a full time in house professional photo editor, your Maui photographer is not sipping wine at 2 in the morning while post processing your photos, you get an EXPERT in post processing. Our editor carefully perfects each photo and completes the magic by always removing distracting people and objects from the background, making sure your skin looks its best by removing shine, blemishes and softening lines. You will never look better than in a photo by the Karma Hill Photography team thanks to the teamwork of our photographers and our post processing geniuses using our proprietary editing techniques!
