At Sky and Reef Photography, we focus on getting a mix of both candids and posed. We are about having fun and getting those once-in-a-lifetime shots that last a lifetime. Our photos are bright, vivid, true to life color, which showcases Hawaii's natural beauty. Ultimately, I am here to make you look Damn good in your photographs.
The atmosphere at Haiku Gardens is magical and is such a hidden gem in Oahu for your locals and destination brides alike. Haiku Gardens is located on the east side of Oahu, in Kanhoe. The venue showcases a breathtaking botanical Garden and a beautiful, open-air Tahitian Chapel.
In the center of the venue, there is a gazebo afloat in a pond filled with koi fish. The foliage makes you feel like you are in a tropical jungle and serves as some epic photo spots for both you and your guests. The venue is like a built-in photo booth, every single angle of this place is its good angle. At the top of the venue, there is a great restaurant called Haleiwa Joes and I recommend the tuna poke. As you sit at their beautiful wooden tables you can see the mountains and the clouds. This place is perfect if you are looking for a botanical garden with all the amenities.
What really set this venue apart from so many others in Hawaii is it is not at the beach and because of this, couples get so many amazing versatile photos of themselves. The ambiance of this place is serene. With all these unique and different backdrops you will never get tired of this venue. It offers so many creative approaches from a photographers perspective. Haiku garden truly delivers Hawaii beauty in this private and secluded garden paradise.
