Family Photos

We were lucky enough to hire Kristin to do a family photo shoot this summer. The photos came out beautiful! For a group that is not particularly comfortable in front of the camera, Kristin had us feeling at ease and the images captured that. I would HIGHLY recommend her!

2nd Honeymoon

Kristen did our 2nd honeymoon photo session while we were in Kauai. The location was Shipwreck Beach. She did an awesome job. Highly recommened

Swell Photography

Kristin did a great job photographing our family of eight adults and an easily distractible two year old. Her suggestion of location was perfect, and her methods of capturing a two year old's attention resulted in some gorgeous photos. Our biggest "dilemma" will be deciding which photos are our favorites!

Hiking Wedding Photography

Kristin is wonderful to work with! I hired her for my wedding ceremony, which took place along the Kuilau Ridge Trail in Wailua County. She responded promptly to any questions I had via email and is so kind, friendly and professional in person. Our photos turned out amazing and really captured the beautiful memories of our hiking ceremony. I am very lucky and glad Kristin was recommended to me and I would recommend her to anyone planning a Kauai wedding in the future. Thank you Kristin!


Thank you so much for your beautiful work. We have never had such great pictures taken. We will always cherish them!


The pictures look great and the edits were perfect, thank you, you far exceeded our expectations, I had no idea that such edits could be done and come out looking like the picture was taken like that, definitely a skill. Again, I can't thank you enough for your professionalism and the great pictures you produced.

Swell Photography

Visited Kauai for the first time and wanted to take my engagement pictures during my vacation. I initially found Swell Photography on Pinterest and contacted about eight photographers. I choose swell amongst all the Kauai photographers because the price was very reasonable, included free download of the pictures and touch-up. I truly felt comfortable when Kristen (Swell Photographer/owner) called me after my initial inquiry email to answer any questions, locations and ideas, she exemplified the Aloha spirit.

When we arrived in Kauai, the weather was not in my favor on my booked session. No worries, Kristen accommodated my request to move the session. Additionally, my fiancée and I decided to bring our wedding gown and suit to Kauai, so we can take pre-wedding pictures instead. If your getting married, take as many pictures in your wedding dress because the day of the wedding is not enough time.

So I choose to take my pictures 1 hour before sunset on the South side at Mahaulepu Beach. Kristen got pictures with the mountains behind us, sail boat, black rock, sand, oceans and etc. All the pictures turned out perfect without touch ups but I did get some touch ups with my hair and people in the background.

After sharing my pictures on FB, received positive comments and likes of the pictures. I highly recommend Swell Kauai photography for Kauai family portraits, Kauai engagement session and Kauai wedding photography.

She's as good as it gets!!!! :)

Kristin took our honeymoon photos -- and they are FANTASTIC! I can't say enough about her work, but her photos speak for itself. She gave our photos 2 weeks after our photoshoot -- that's amazing.

Kristin made our photoshoot so comfortable, fun, and memorable. If you're looking for a photographer for your honeymoon, look no further. My family and friends rave about our gorgeous photos. We love looking at these photos too because we are taken back to our good times in Kauai.

Family Pictures

We had holiday family pictures taken with Swell photography last year and this year.The pictures came out amazingly beautiful capturing magical natural beauty of Kauai in the back ground. Very professional and fun photo sessions. I highly recommend Swell Photography!


Kristin did a fantastic job at balancing our large family including two small babies. We had a wonderful time and the stunning photos will be the favourite souvenir and reminder of our family getaway.
