“Mel was wonderful to work with on our anniversary trip to Oahu! Communication was always positive and quick leading up to our trip. I researched many photographers in the area before ultimately deciding on Mel and I am so thankful I did! She was so pleasant, helped us feel more comfortable behind the camera and I love the 30 minute photoshoot she offers as we didn’t want to take up a lot of time during our vacation! Several photos were emailed to me very quickly for our sneak peek which I loved, her work speaks for itself! Highly recommend MW Photography to capture your special moments!”

“OMG these are stunning! I’m so excited and overjoyed with how beautiful these are and how well the poses came out. You are amazing and we’re so happy we went with you!!”

“Omg, Melena, you did the most amazing job. We just looked at the sneak peek and you completely blew me away with how amazing each picture was. Thank you so so so much. I knew from your Instagram they would be nice, but I am completely impressed and so happy.”

“I absolutely love them! Thank you once again for capturing these beautiful pictures! I am eternally grateful to you!”

“All I can say is WOW!!! These pictures are so much better than I expected! Can’t wait to see the rest! A million times THANK YOU!!!”

What To Wear

Don’t know what to wear to your photoshoot? To enhance and contract the beautiful colors Oahu, Hawaii has to offer, I recommend wearing colors such as blues, pinks, whites and pastels. Make sure it’s something you feel comfortable moving and walking around in! Outdoor photography on the island of Oahu, Hawaii tends to stay pretty windy year-round so I always recommend coming prepared with hair ties, clips, whatever you might need to keep your hair looking good throughout the shoot. If you want to get into the ocean at the end of the photoshoot to get some fun water shots, I definitely recommend bringing a towel!

As a photographer in Oahu, I know of lots of things to do and see around the island. Some of the top things to do on the island are on the way to Sandy Beach Park! There is Hanauma Bay which is great for snorkeling, there is Halona Blowhole, which is amazing to see, there’s Sea Life Park and the drive itself along the coastline is so beautiful! It is definitely my favorite part of Oahu. If you have a photoshoot at Waialae Beach Park, I recommend bringing a bathing suit and towel because this beach is great for swimming!
