Meet your photographer


To be completely honest I’m pretty stoked that we may be working together to capture one of the best days of your life - AND, I don’t take the honor lightly. I believe that photography is one of the most important parts of your big day. And it
really is an investment.
When everything is over, the cake has been cut, the honeymoon is over, aside from massive amounts of love for each other the only thing you have left is the
photographs from your day.
My goal when I get behind the camera is to capture photos that transport you right back to the day that your
adventure started.
Oh, doesn't that seem absolutely beautiful.
Let me tell you more about who will be behind the camera on your wedding day. I just love, love. I live for capturing breaktaking moments I love capturing authentic moments
and want my images to speak to the souls that are free spirited and ready to push aside posed, cookie cutter photography. I got tired of boring photos and wanted to create some- thing out-of-the-box, fun, and extraordinary.
My passion is capturing my clients connection in their photos - wether it be with your family, your fiance, or your children.
Every wedding I shoot holds a special place in my heart.
After it is all said and done, I’ll have witnessed and captured your very own love story. I’ll have had laughed and cried with you during every special moment

"At Sky and Reef Photography we DELIVER POWERFUL CONSISTENT IMAGERY, focusing on a mix of Candids and Posed, with EXPERT LIGHTING, all topped with a CREATIVE and ARTISTIC STYLE. 

We continue to push our craft and knowledge, staying ahead of the curve, learning new techniques like Aerial Photography angles using drones."

1. Candids + Posed

Let's face it. Most of us are not trained models and have absolutely NO idea how to stand, pose, and act in front of the camera. I hear from so many couples.

“We feel awkward in front of the camera” Let me tell you a secret. I feel the same WAY!

We are all just normal humans trying to look DAMN good in your wedding photos.
Our team is here on your wedding day to politely let you know you have lipstick on your teeth, your hair is out of place and to make sure your dress is draped perfect for those formal or epic photographs.

We're kinda like your glam squad. We got you!
I come from 16 years of dance and I have taught Pilates and Barre classes. I have studied the body, posture and posing and I am here to train you to and your partner to look effortless in front of the camera. If an engagement session is added to your package you will learn tricks to look leaner and longer and develop confidence to look your best on your wedding day even during those candid moments! Hooray!

2. Powerful Emotional imagery 

Sky and Reef Photography images are representations of genuine human experiences and emotions captured in a way that is creative and engaging. I want to not only show what one of the important days in your life looked like, but how it felt to be there. Through my photography, I have the privilege of telling your story. I strive to show timeless details through authentic and powerful emotional imagery.

3. Expert lighting

In photography, lighting is EVERYTHING!

Tara from Sky and Reef Photography has trained with some of the top studio, school and mentored with artists in Los Angeles to understand and manipulate lighting. Our studio has the equipment and gear to take on any lighting challenge that comes our way to create breathtaking  and beautiful imagery. 

4. Artistic Style

One of our goals at Sky and Reef Photography is to take photographs that you want to hang on your wall. One of the biggest compliments throughout the years is walking into someone's home and seeing the images that we have created hanging in their homes or their parents homes. It makes me want to do a happy dance. 

We take our inspiration from the outdoors, fashion and relationships. We are a curator of candid and I will do just about anything to get the shot. I have been know to get chin deep in water, climb on rocks, lay on the ground to get the best wedding photos for you!

6. DRone Photography

For every hour we spend at your wedding and event, you can conservatively multiply that number by four to estimate the total time we spend on you. So for an 8-hour wedding, that’s at least 64 man-hours. Our service includes as standard; meetings, wedding day timelines, liaising with other suppliers, pre- wedding venue visits and of course, all that careful, post-event image editing. All this means you’re paying for so much more than an on-the-day-of service.

a unique perspective of your day

With Hawaii’s specular landscape that includes mountains, turquoise waters, and sandy beaches aerial photography is the new must-have for your wedding day. Sky and Reef Photography is happy to announce we are offering drone and aerial photography in 2019.
The advantages of using drones for wedding photography are numerous as drones offer a truly unique perspective on weddings that traditional
photography just can’t deliver.
