Story-telling through bright, vibrant and warm photos! I love bringing out authentic emotions that go with the bright colors Hawai'i displays.

photos you can feel

“Jy was so kind and professional before during and after our photoshoot. She truly made the whole process effortless and enjoyable and not to mention stress free! I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and I really appreciate how she took the time to learn everyone’s names and note down the small things that were specific to each person such as the direction in which one person’s hair was blowing or recognizing that my toddler was scared to get too close to the water. Those small things and Jy’s kindness truly made a big difference. She worked so well with my toddler and that was my biggest worry and she was amazing. I honestly wouldn’t change a thing and she will now be our go to photographer when we visit Oahu and you bet I will be telling all of my family and friends about how amazing she is!.”

“Working with Jy was a fun and great experience!  She was prompt in her responses, professional, organized, clear and flexible with my uncertainty with how long we'd need her and subsequent pricing. She was also very patient with all my questions, which was very much appreciated. I'd done my research on her social media and website with the quality of her work, and even heard recommendations for her from others who had worked with her at weddings. Jy has a great personality, easygoing, makes you feel comfortable (even when you feel awkward like us!), and does her best to make sure she captures the photos that YOU want. I'd highly recommend her for anyone looking for a professional, fun photographer who will make every penny of this investment into your memories WORTH IT..”

“Jynessa is fantastic to work with. She is very responsive and answered my inquiries quickly. She was very transparent with her pricing and communicative with the whole process. Leading up to the session, she made sure to check in the day before and also to confirm location and if we had any questions. She directed us throughout the session while also allowing opportunities to see what natural photos would come about with our little family. Our daughter warmed up to Jy so quickly. It was a shame we didn't get any photos of them holding hands too! The photos came out wonderful; almost dream-like, soft and light. The entire album was beautiful. We would definitely book again if we are in Oahu again.”

“Jynessa is fantastic to work with.”
