Client Testimonials

  • Book her!! Ranae loves what she does and loves working with her clients to get the most incredible photos. My husband and I recently traveled to Hawaii for a babymoon and booked Ranae for our maternity shoot. She was professional, interactive and went above and beyond to get the most amazing photos. We had a call before the shoot to discuss what we were looking for, attire, style, etc. and to get to know one another. I had talked to a few photographers on the island and she came across as the expert that I wanted taking our photos. She worked with us longer than we had booked her for and was able to put together a sneak peak within 24 hrs for us before we left the island. Having just seen all of our gorgeous photos I'm over the moon! Book her. You'll be happy you did.

  • I booked a wedding package through the Royal Kona Resort, and Ranae was one of the choices of photographers available. All it took was one quick look at her photos in her portfolio, and I was already in love. To me the photos were the most important part of the day, as I will be looking at them for years to come. She made me look beautiful, my guests looked wonderful, and of course my groom looked so handsome. I couldn't ask for anything better! Although I do regret I didn't pay to keep her there longer! Even my sister was lamenting that she wished she had had Ranae for her wedding! Needless to say, I'll be recommending her right and left, as well as planning on using her in the future!!! Mahalo nui Loa.

  • Ranae was an amazing photographer. It took me a long time to decide who I would want to use as a photographer, but I am so happy I went with Ranae. From the minute I saw her page, I fell in love with the quality and the color of her pictures. She had very vibrant beautiful photos. Once I was trying to decide who I was going to choose, Ranae was the only photographer that actually called to get to know me and what I was looking for even before I had booked her. I knew she was the one I needed to have to shoot these photos that I would have for the rest of my life. She was such a pleasure to work with on the day of. Her shots were incredible and I will definitely keep her in mind if I ever need a photographer on the Big Island again. Highly, highly recommend!

  • To bad they are not 6 stars because I need it an extra one. My now husband dislikes pictures, I don't mind regular cell-phone pictures, but when I'm infront of a big camera I get as stiff as a tree. Well, Ranae somehow made us feel comfortable. She was fun, but professional and by the end Christopher and I were ever dancing and being goofy. We felt like we knew her for years. I can't thank her enough for capturing our special day and making us feel comfortable. to us Ranae will be remember as the Hawaiin photo Goddess.
