PhotoHawaii is dedicated to capturing the tender and fleeting moments of your once-in-a-lifetime celebration in compelling, timeless, images that you will treasure forever. Award-winning photographers Chris Douglass and Peter Thompson use dramatic lighting techniques, artful composition and professional editing skills to tell your unique story filled with emotional moments from start to finish. 

By taking the time to get to know you before the big day, Chris and Peter will be sure to capture all the moments that are truly special to you and incorporate the details of your personal story - from the special earrings your grandmother gave you to the guests who came halfway around the world to be with you.

With more than 8 years of portrait, editorial and wedding photography under his belt, Chris takes a more candid and photojournalistic approach to capturing your special day in an effort to tell your beautiful story as it naturally unfolds.  Chris doesn’t think of himself so much as a photographer, but as a storyteller.  Through the lens, he sees moments full of love, celebration, dedication, courage, commitment and faithfulness that are meant to be remembered forever.  In a split second, so much life is happening all around us.  Those tales are the ones he aims to tell that cannot be put into words.  

By leveraging more than 20 years of experience in editorial and advertising photography, Peter is uniquely qualified to capture the moments that matter with all the emotion of the day itself. His engaging personality and relaxed manner put family and friends at ease for photographs that are truly a reflection of you.

Chris and Peter work hand in hand with your wedding coordinator to ensure that they will be in the right place at just the right time, allowing you to enjoy the day as it unfolds.

The goal is to ensure that every couple's dream is realized and that turning the pages of their custom-designed wedding album transports them back in time to that special day. "Years from now," says Peter, "I hope when you look through your album, you will still feel the warmth of our Hawaiian sun, the soft Hawaiian breeze on your skin, and still smell the fragrance of your bouquet.”

All of your photos will be available online for your friends and family to view and purchase, and every image you select is lovingly edited, color balanced, and artistically enhanced by PhotoHawaii's award winning in-house graphic designer.


Fresh yet timeless, a PhotoHawaii storybook album is a custom coffee table-style book in which every page is a work of art, enhanced by backgrounds and details from your wedding. This archival-quality album is sure to be treasured for generations to come.

For more than 15 years, PhotoHawaii has worked with Hawaii's most exclusive resorts to record happily ever afters against the stunning backdrop of Hawaii's natural beauty. Chris and Peter believe it is a privilege to be a part of the happiest day of your lives and would be honored to preserve those memories for a lifetime.
