Secret Beach - Koolina Family Portrait Photography

Hi Tony,I really want to thank you for taking such wonderful pictures. Everyone that has seen them loves them and compliments your work. I'm so happy that you were able to capture our family in such a loving way. Our son was born just two days following our photo shoot and I was so happy. We have given your website to some people already that asked about your work and will tell many more about you. We will be contacting you when Keith gets back from Iraq to have some family photos taken. Thank you once again and have a great and happy new year.
With much love, Lorraine and Keith Pugh - Honolulu HI

Hi Anthony, WOW!!! What can we say? The pictures turned out better than we could have hoped for! We were not expecting to like them all, but they all turned out beautiful, and we could not be more pleased. So many people have commented on how beautiful the pictures are and we are truly grateful that you were the photographer that we selected. Thank you for the time that you took with us to make sure that our photos were spectacular. You are truly an artist that captured the love that we feel for each other in a way that we will always cherish. Nina and David - Lugoff SC

Hi Anthony, We happily receive the photos, discs, and the chocolates! Thank you very much. The beach /sunset photos of Melane and Chad's wedding day are exquisite; real treasures - we all just love them! So many many good shots of everyone and the settings at Keiki Beach Bungalows; Thank you so much! Louise and Ron - Kamloops BC Canada

Aloha Anthony, Thank you so much for being our wedding photographer. The images that you captured are beautiful. We've gotten many compliments from family and friends. We could not be happier with your work. All the emotions, love, happiness from our wedding day will forever be remembered through your pictures. Thank you again. Thi and Benjamin - San Francisco CA

Anthony, I am in awe of the photographs. These pictures are BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!! You captured exactly what my husband and I feel for each other and I am so thankful for you. Our session was magical and we're already planning another photo shoot with you in a few years. I'm so incredibly excited to share these memories with friends and family and to have your magic hanging as art in our home.

Dear Anthony - You did a wonderful job with our photographs; and we are very happy with them. We enjoyed the photo session with you in Oahu very much. Don't know if you recall, but when you had the four of us getting situated with our backs to the water for a photo on Eternity beach, a wave came in and we all got wet before you could take the shot, and we then had to resituate ourselves for the shot - we all thought that was hilarious. Turns out that that particular photo is the one we liked the most, and I'll always remember (i.e. in a good way) getting wet for the shot whenever I see the photo on our living room wall. I was amazed at the location of the rock sea cliff with Diamondhead in the background. You would certainly have to be very familiar with the island to find that place, and the setting was gorgeous. We had not had professional photographs taken on vacation before. My wife and daughters were a little skeptical when I told them I had booked the photography session, but they really enjoyed it, and we will now always have beautiful reminders of that particular trip with the framed photos. I am sure we will be back in Oahu in the next year or so, and would like to arrange for another photo session with you then. You were very professional, and the photos were excellent and exceeded my expectations. Again, thank you for your wonderful services!!! Mushlitz Family - Lewiston ID

Hi Anthony! Aww, thanks so much for the beautiful images they are all worth blowing up! Just a matter of which one... They were so beautiful and artistic you definitely captured "the moment"... Darrell has not seen any of the pictures yet except for the one of me kneeling on the beach and he absolutely loved it! I think thats my favorite one of all. Thank you, thank you so very much! You did such a great job we couldn't thank you enough! ~ Julie- Kapolei, HI

Big Mahalo to you Anthony, On behalf of all my family in Japan, I would like to thank you for the fabulous photos. You are absolutely right about the location, Lani Kai. It's the most beautiful beach!!! (though we could've done without the wind). But I was surprised to see only a few hair issues despite the strong wind. We are very happy that we chose you. You were very patient with the kids and the girls' hair issues not rushing through to finish. We all appreciate it. You are a great photographer, I hope you keep having fun and enjoy life doing what you love making others memories more memorable. After all the fun time is over, all we have left is the photos of the past to look at. You made our past look like it was in paradise. You made all our children look like angels. Amazing!! Good luck and God bless, Emiko - VA

Hi Anthony, Thank you for the lovely pictures. You've done a fabulous job and it was a pleasure working with you. Great experience and memory. Keep up the good work, you're really a talented photographer. Allyson and Dwayne James - Honolulu, Hawaii

You've captured really awesome shots and for that I'm so grateful, my friends and family enjoy them also. I will be lookin forward to working with you in the near future...Thank you Thank you so much! Maururu Roa!!! Kristy Ann - Honolulu, Hawaii
Anthony, On behalf of Eve and I, you the man! The pictures look great and the experience we had that day still brings Eve and I smiles and laughs. The wind, messy hair, crowded beach, rambunctious Abby and your positive attitude made it all worth while. Thanks for the great pictures, but most of all great memories. I'm definitely referring you to all of our friends and family. We're definitely going to call you again the next time we set off for Hawaii, hopefully by that time we will have another addition to the family! Cheers and Aloha,- Kenny, Eve and Abby - San Francisco, Ca.

Hi Anthony, The pictures arrived on the following day you sent them. THANK YOU so much for sending them by express mail. We really enjoyed looking at each and every picture you took. We love them all!! Each one is a favorite one and it'll be hard to choose a few to enlarge!! Capturing our feelings and emotions in a picture is worth more than a million words!! This was exactly what we both wanted so we can treasure them for a lifetime. The time we had there in Manoa Valley and at Sandy Beach will always be a memorable one! Thank you Anthony for all your hard work and time in dedicating yourself in what you love and sharing it with us. Again, we will definitely recommend your professional services to all our friends and we will be contacting you in the near future for more of your exceptional artistic photography service for our wedding day!! Lots of Aloha!, Rey and Lyn

Dear Anthony, God's abundant blessing on you and your wife in 2007. I know it was a difficult job for you to work with my " high maintenance " family, but I must tell you the photos you captured of my three sons is a priceless tresure for Scott and Me. Thank you for giving of your gift and striving to always do your best. You are a very special man and world is better with you in it!! The Thorp Family - Scott, Angie, Scottie, Victor, Holden

Hi Anthony, We are very happy with our pictures! The images are very much what we expected and they are representative of everything we loved about the pictures on your website. If anything, I would say that our expectations were exceeded. Thank you again for taking so much time with us, and for being so patient and making us feel so comfortable. The photos are once-in-a-lifetime images and they mean a lot to us. You were truly able to capture something that isn't reflected in any other pictures we have. We have too many favorites to name and are currently trying to decide which images to get prints of to display as art in our house. All of the pictures are also very flattering - in addition to the emotion you were able to capture, I think you also brought out our best physical traits. While I would agree that some of the images are better than others, I definitely think you were overly critical in your assessment that we have "some" winners! I understand that you probably have different criteria in assessing your work, but to me all of our pictures are priceless! Thanks again for everything, and have a happy New Year! Adam and Barbara Kline - Norman, OK

Dear Anthony, Thank you for your, highly-professional, work with me on photographing portfolio pics. Your ability to coach me as well as the quality of the photos gave me a great deal of confidence in the project. Amazingly, my agency called me for an audition within three weeks of submission of the photos, I was really surprised! Perhaps the best thing about working with you is that you showed how much you cared about me as a person, not just a subject for photographs and that soulfulness came right through in the shots we did.Thanks again...I owe you one (or two or three...) Robert Montgomery - Kapolei, Hawaii

Aloha Anthony! We received the pictures this week and they are amazing!! You did such an awesome job capturing images from our wedding day. We have gotten soo many compliments on your work. Your photos depict the love we have for one another and they bring back great memories. Our sincere thanks for your kindness and hard work to make our day that much more special. Not only are you an extremely talented photographer, you are also a wonderful person and we are grateful we had the opportunity to meet you. We look forward to keeping in touch with you as we will definitely use Ed and Lien Campbell, Modesto, CA

Aloha Anthony, I received the pictures and disk. My mom was so pleased with them. My sister cried tears of joy when she saw the pictures of her and her family. We can't wait to print larger prints and frame and mat them as Christmas gifts. Thank you for your lovely work. Rebekkah, Whittier CA

Hello Anthony, Thank you so much... We received the photos and we agree... there are definitely some we'll be enlarging and framing. We'll definitely be recommending you to any friends/family planning a trip to Hawaii. Peace to you! Sera and Joe, Ontario, Canada

Our deepest gratitude for the outsanding photographs you shot of our family. You managed to capture each one of us at exactly the right moment. When one looks at the pictures you took, one can definitely see our personalities and feel the love and sincerity in our hearts. The location was awesome and your patience, kindness, understanding and laughter made the photo session fun and relaxing for each of us. every time we look at our photos, especially the ones openly displayed in our home, we will have you to thank. Again, you have given us a portfolio of lasting memories and for that we will forever be grateful. God bless you, Candace, Butch and Gregory, Torrence, CA

You are wonderful Anthony! There really were some winners in the bunch! Thank you. I think the thing that is most special about your work is that you don't sell photographs, you sell art. You treat every picture like it's your last, and you never settle for anything less than beautiful. I could feed off of your creativity, and I felt relaxed the whole time. Infact, I had a lot of fun the whole time. The "art" you gave me had feeling and meaning (which is just what you were photographing for), and I was really glad to be a part of it. Thanks again for your artistic Sarah, Davey NE

Anthony: Just a note to let you know we received our photos yesterday, and we're very pleased! Thanks so much for all of your hard work and most of all your patience. The four of us had a lot to overcome to get the quality images you captured, and we appreciate the fact that you worked with us instead of just taking quick snapshots. If we're ever on the island again, we would be glad to commison your services again. Mahalo!!! The Ellisons, Tennessee

Hi Anthony!! I just wanted to say Thank You!!!! Over that past two years of working with you I have learned sooo much... not only about the technical aspects of photography, but about making everyone feel comfortable, and making every shot count. It's all about the energy, and you always give 110%. You have a great eye, and treat every photograph as a work of art. Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement! Thank you for letting me borrow your cameras and lenses!!! I really appreciate the time that I have spent working with you, and everything that you have done for me. I'm going to miss you, and I can't wait to work with you again in the future!! Aloha, Allison Allison Jackson, Boston, Ma.

It is not hard to tell you love doing what you do. You finished work is the proof. Thanks again for a great experience

Hi Anthony! We received our photos today and we were so pleased! To be honest, I wasn't expecting to get that many fabulous photos because of my little boy's meltdown, but I was pleasantly surprised! I just wanted to thank you for your communication, patience, and beautiful work. We're very excited to share the photos with the rest of the family! Mahalo! Amy Besnard ,Chico, Ca

We had such a nice time and have memories to last forever. But I do have to share something with you that makes our photos more special. We had no idea at the time- but you actually photographed the "three" of us, yes, "three". Just four days after we returned home, we discovered that our first baby is on the way. So now we have even more reason to cherish our photos! Thank you for the experience and your kindness will always be remembered. Molly Herrick, Marshall, Minnesota
