Finding the right photography location in Hawaii

Finding the right photography location in Hawaii

You were meant for me and I was meant for you ... so you've gone and got engaged to this super person. You have found your other half! Now where will you document this memory??

If you are thinking Hawaii ... there are so many spots that can portray your monumental love for someone. So let's start with a few questions. If you are traveling to Oahu, which area expresses your style most. Do you like adventure? Mountain peaks? Crashing waves and and a seemingly endless beach?

Or do you prefer a more quirky documentation of a laid back city scape? A cafe scene or more industrial vibe?

Although, Hawaii screams blue water, white sand and palm trees, there are other cute but offbeat choices as well: Rustique Laundry mats, Old buildings in Downtown Honolulu, Aloha Tower, Vintage Coffee shops, Pineapple plantations, ... and the list goes on. Let me help you to find the perfect location for you!

Michelle Jost Portrait

michelle Jost PhotographerI am a photographer focusing on elopements, engangements, couple sessions and adventure shoots, located in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii.

My specialty: Featuring you surrounded by stunning landscape scenery in beautiful unique locations. I enjoy capturing emotions, smiles, ceremony tears and moments of surprise.

Prior to relocating to Hawaii, I traveled the world and documented cultures, cities and all that places had to offer. I have always enjoyed photography and the memories that it provides. From chic staircases and hotel bars to a person taking a break on a Parisian or Korean street corner exhaling a puff of smoke to those charming European cobblestone streets and elegant Thai and Japanese temples. All of these moments were very special and the magic of photography has allowed me to savor each of them.

Combining my love for style, adventure and travel I continue to capture sweet moments for couples and individuals that wish to celebrate themselves and their closest friends here in Hawaii and around the world.

I look forward to being part of your unique day and to provide you with images that will always remind you of your magical moment in that time.
