My husband and I have been to Kauai several times but this time our daughters and their families joined us. I knew I wanted to have professional portraits taken. I looked at several photographers and read reviews. Dana with Garden Island Photography has a short (3-4 minute) video that helped me make my decision. We had 10 people, 4 of them teens and children. Our 5 year old granddaughter is especially hard to photograph and get a good picture that shows her personality. Dana corresponded with me several times before our trip. He suggested locations and times of day for what I wanted. He offers several packages and length of sessions. The day we took pictures was windy but he still managed to get great group shots, individual family shots, couples, and individual of each grandchild. He took pictures of the 5 year old as she played and got beautiful, natural shots. Dana edited the pictures I chose and continued to edit until I was satisfied with the results. Thank you Dana and Garden Island Photography for great memories captured in photos!

Thank you B, for taking the time to write this thoughtful review. I suppose you could tell, but I really did enjoy meeting your family. I'm glad you had the opportunity to get them all together! It was a pleasure to serve you all, and I hope our paths will cross again, in whatever context that may be.

We had a family photo shoot with 21 of us, 12 adults, 9 children and teens including a baby. I was very happy with the photos. Dana got some wonderful shots of each of the children, a great group photo and some fabulous candid photos as I had asked for. He was very communicative beforehand by email, asking for everyone’s name making sure he knew exactly what we wanted. Highly recommend!

We loved working with Dana and love the photos he captured. He did a wonderful job asking ahead of time what we were looking for in our photo shoot and has an eye for detail. He has many excellent options of locations to choose from so by using the great content on his website we were able to select a location that was perfect for capturing a memory of a wonderful trip to the beautiful island of Kauai. Very happy with his work.

We wanted family photos as this was the first time we had done anything like that before. Found Garden island photography on this site. Contacted Dana (the owner) who was very helpful in choosing the site. I originally wanted to go the north shore which is my favorite part of the island, but we had a two year old that doesn’t do well in the car on long trips . We were staying in Poipu . We ended up going to shipwreck beach which turned out great ! Dana was so easy to work with. I think I changed my mind about the location 3 or 4 times and he was always very accommodating to me. Very professional. We got the file with the pictures in 2 week as promised. The pictures are outstanding! He got so many great shots of all of us. I would highly recommend him . When we have our next grand baby we will be sure to use him again . Thank you Dana !
