And I am so dang glad you are here. I'm a portrait and destination elopement photographer based in Oahu, Hawaii. Basically, I'm an island girl who wants to go on an adventure with you!  I love "talking story" and getting to know people. Especially those "how we met" stories. What can I say, I'm a romantic. If I'm not out adventuring with you I'll most likely be with family and friends, reading a good book, making trouble to my dog, or watching some Japanese anime. 

Hi friend!  I'm Kristen Iwalani...




Matt + Glenda

"We absolutely loved our session with Kristen! She made us feel so comfortable and relaxed right away. As people who aren't the most comfortable in front of the camera, Kristen provided tons of guidance and encouragement to be ourselves. The music she had playing in the background also helped as well with setting the mood! She thought about everything! You could tell she put a lot of thought and time into making sure the lighting, backgrounds, and angles were perfect! She also took my ideas of what I wanted and made them to reality. We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out.

I highly recommend her."
