Frequently Asked Questions


+ Where are you located and do you travel?

I live in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, but I love to travel! Count me in for a visit to any of the outer islands or internationally. I am in Europe or Asia at least twice a year, so if the dates align, I just might be in your area. Feel free to inquire.

+ How do I book/start the booking process with you?

Please click here for a request to book. I will be sending a questionnaire to gather some information which will help me prepare for our first conversation.

+ What is your photography style?

My style and vision is elegance meets adventure. While trends are fun, I want your images to stand the test of time, so you will look back and still see yourself classically and elegantly captured in the moment.
I want your session to include all of the playful, sweet and sultry glances and document your time in a setting that you will treasure for a lifetime. Affection encouraged!

I can direct you to ensure that we capture the content but also will get candids so you will have a mix of posed and unposed looks to create a more natural variety of images.

On another note: I will scale any mountain that interests you to capture that jaw dropping backdrop. I also realize that you may want to be in a show stopping landscape without breaking a sweat. I completely understand this and have a number of locations that can make you look like you are dangling from a cliff. We can get these easy, yet gorgeous adventure images with ease and they are are literally a 5 minute walk. I even encourage heels! (If that is your look).
I can happily suggest multiple locations to cover all desires.

+ How many hours of coverage will I get?

The packages vary according to your needs. Typically for general sessions it is one to two hours. But if we need more time for more locations or custom ideas, I am happy to accommodate and tailor a package to meet your special requests.

+ Do you have professional referrals?

Hair and Make up, Florists, an Airstream, custom design arches or other props? Yes, we can! I have a list of preferred vendors that I have worked with and can easily recommend if you’d like to add a bit of artistic or architectural glamour to your day!

+ Do you offer videography?

Yes! I have a team of videographers on speed dial who will shoot in a consistent style with mine to capture your day.

+ What if the weather is bad on the day of our session?

It can rain in our tropical environment. We can discuss this depending on the situation.

+ What should I wear?

I can send you a style guide that will help you decide on the look that you’d like.

+ How long will it take for us to see our pictures?

I will deliver the full gallery in 2-3 weeks.

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.
