Is Karma Hill Photography the Right Hawaii Photographer for You?


Last Updated on June 5, 2019 by Karma Hill

Photography that’s appealing to you involves your style and personality and the lens in which you see life through. Finding a Hawaii photographer that matches your own personal taste will ensure your photos are everything you dreamed they would be and enhance your photography experience.

Our Hawaii Photography Style?

We have a distinctive photographic style at Karma Hill Photography on all the Hawaiian islands we shoot on.

We specialize in bright, airy photos, with a more “styled cinematic look”. If you are in the market for moody dark images, or only candid photos, we won’t be the right fit for you (and that’s just fine).

We specialize in shooting gorgeous images that won’t go out of style and avoid ultra trendy editing that will look dated a few years down the road. Just as instagram filters change, so does what’s trendy in photography editing. We believe your photos should be timeless.

We adore the beautiful natural light and awe-inspiring backdrops here in Hawaii and want all our photos to feel bathed in it. We love natural connection and emotion and do our best to foster that in every photoshoot.

We give you just enough direction to let the scene feel natural and unstaged while capturing your best angles in the perfect light. One of our favorite shots to capture is the epic wide open scenic photo highlighted by subjects in a prearranged location within the photo. This way we achieve the iconic and mesmerizing Hawaii photography look you were drawn to, with you as the featured models.

A Team Approach to Hawaii Photography

Even though the company is named after the owner “Karma Hill” she never dreamed her true-to-life style would create such demand.

Today, Karma Hill Photography is a professionally trained team of photographers working together towards a common goal of capturing amazing images in our signature”styled cinematic look”.

Karma says,

“It is amazing how we made our own creative community working together towards a common goal of capturing amazing images in our signature style.

We are so lucky to have the opportunity to learn and grow from one another which we know makes us better artists than a singular photographer can do alone. Our entire photography team works closely with each other to keep our style streamlined, cohesive, consistent and constantly improving”.

There is great peace of mind that comes with knowing there is a team of photographers working with you on your photo shoot.

If you hire a one-person operation and they get sick or have an emergency, it can lead to a stressful situation for you. We have actually covered for other photographers who had emergencies because they trust our extremely skilled and talented team and know we have the capacity for handling even last minute photographic needs.

Our Personal Touch Sets Us Apart

Our team of Hawaii photographers are kind and caring. Our style of service is to provide support and direction, not to be bossy or controlling while running a shoot or taking wedding photos.

Our passion during a photoshoot is for creating a fun, safe, and relaxed environment that allows our subject to let their guards down and reveal deep emotional connections, then capture them through photography.

If you are looking for a strong type A personality who will order everyone around, we aren’t going to be the best fit for you.

So many of our married couples and families return year after year for us to photograph their maternity shoots, family portraits, senior portraits, and vow renewals. We’ve been blessed to be able to watch families grow with new additions from behind our lens and embrace us as part of their Hawaii family.

It’s part of our core values as a photography company to grow with our clients and it’s why so many of our clients choose us year after year for all of their Hawaii photography needs.

Our Favorite Photography Spots In Hawaii

A quick peek through our site, and you can see that we’ve got our favorite spots to shoot scoped out!

Our photographers scour Oahu and Maui for ideal places for photo shoots–that means beaches that are not only beautifully laid out, but ones that tend to have fewer crowds and predictable weather. From bright tropical morning colors to soft pastel-hued sunsets, our team can help you figure out the ideal time of day and the perfect location for your shoot.

We know the islands well and can organize your session to work around your schedule and where you’re staying for the best match possible.

Bringing All Elements Together

From locations to color palettes, it’s important to know beforehand what your vision is! Pinterest and Instagram can be valuable tools to look at different styling, lighting, and settings to get the best idea of what you want for your portraits or wedding photography in Hawaii. One of the best resources to see just how a shoot by one of our Hawaii photographers will look like is our blog here: Karma Hill Photography Blog.

If you feel we’d make a great match, we’d love to work with you! Check out our home page to find what type of photography you are looking for under our portraits and weddings sections on our home page here: Karma Hill Photography .

We really seek to provide an environment that you will feel confident with anyone from our team of Hawaii photographers. We always do our best to make you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera so we can perfectly capture the joy and beauty of the moment. For us, it’s not just about creating a gorgeous final product, but about the relationships, we get to build along the way.

Warmest Aloha, and we hope to see you soon!
