Serving California + Hawaii

documenting intimate moments and energetic connection between adventurous lovers


...and the raw beauty of the land surrounding them, Noel shared her promises with her beloved confidently. 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.

"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."

"I had the BEST experience with Raizah! I’m currently in the Palm Springs area and she truly captured the heart of Palm Springs and stole the heart of my partner and I. She captured our personalities in EVERY photo she took and never failed to make us smile and laugh and feel like we’ve known her our whole lives. She truly is the best photographer I’ve ever worked with and I’ve developed a new life long friend in the process. I know anyone who gets the chance and privilege to work with her will see how talented and amazing she is right away!"

"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!!!"

"After almost 4 years of marriage my wife and I had no pictures of us together. My wife found Raizah and it was the best decision she could’ve made. She was responsive and made excited and comfortable to have our pictures taken. Her energy was contagious and we loved the results! Highly recommend her!"
