ELopement & Small Wedding Photographer

Serving Hawaii + California

documenting intimate moments & energetic connection between adventurous lovers

WITH THE SUN'S GENTLE GOLDEN RAYS AS THEIR WITNESS...


...and the raw beauty of the Hawaiian Kingdom, Noel shared her promises with her beloved. Their devotion to each other was palpable- every touch, every look, every word exchanged between them was electric. Their bond was strong, a sign of the strong foundation they had built.


At that significant moment, I felt my path unfold. I knew that I wanted to craft bespoke elopement days for my couples, documenting their love and passion undistracted by the world's chaos.


Today, I specialize in taking photos of free-spirited couples who want genuine, natural moments documented as we explore and admire the Earth together. The search for elopement photographers is vast, to see more about my unique approach, click the button below.

"We could not have been happier having Raizah as our elopement planner and photographer. We booked 14 hours of coverage with her. From the start she offered great ideas and locations and made the little planning we had to do super easy. She's punctual but also very flexible which allowed our elopement day to flow more naturally and helped alleviate any stress. Raizah was even able to adjust her plans last minute for us due to a boat tour we had booked being rescheduled. Her service is top notch. But best of all, Raizah is more than just a great photographer and planner, but an even better person. Quickly after meeting her it was obvious that she truly cared about my wife and I and was willing to do whatever it took to make our big day special. Looking back, my wife and I cannot think of anything that could have made our elopement any better, and a big part of that is thanks to Raizah. Thanks again Raizah!!!"

"Every time when we review our photos, we recall the complete storyline of the day, special moments we experienced together, and the natural emotion we expressed during the day. Raizah also guided us for couple interactions like doing a small dance, so we can relax more and our posed pictures are more natural. I’m also very impressed that she carried heavy 3-4 cameras for the best pics, and also a tent for us to get changed at our destination spot. We could feel her tremendous care and support for us to enjoy the most of our big day.


The whole elopement is an adventure to us, and we are glad to have Raizah’s help to plan and go through the journey with us."
