THE CUSTOM PORTRAIT EXPERIENCE
Forget about those awkward tripod photos, or always being on the other side of the camera. When you look back at your photos from Hawaii, we want you to be right there in the frame, enjoying life with the people you love the most. We offer fully customizable portrait photography sessions to fit your preferences - down to the last detail.
Before your session, we’ll review examples of lighting styles and poses so we can match your photoshoot to your preferences.
During your session, we’ll give you a sneak peek of your images so we have the chance to switch things up if you’re not feeling something
After your session, you can choose a simple digital collection delivered online, or enjoy an optional in-person design consultation at our studio

COMPLIMENTARY DESIGN CONSULTATION
Save yourself the guesswork and let our team design a custom photoshoot for you, all the way from the planning stages to hanging beautiful images on your walls. When you book a session with Ola Collective, you have exclusive access to our design team and optional archival, museum-quality print products to preserve your memories for a lifetime. We’ll set up a time for you to view your proofs in-person, usually the following day. Together, we’ll fine-tune edits to your exact preferences and create a mock-up of your wall art. From there, we finalize your order and your products are hand-crafted to order and delivered to your doorstep, ready to hang!
When should I schedule my session during my vacation?
We recommend scheduling your session for the beginning of the trip, before you get sunburned!! The Hawaii sun is very harsh, and despite the best of intentions, you may find yourself a little red by the end of your trip. Not only that, but if we experience bad weather, we will have a little time to re-schedule for a better day.
How far in advance should I book?
While we welcome last minute bookings, we encourage you to book ahead to ensure you have a spot reserved during the time you are here, especially during holidays or summer. We are also happy to assist in planning your session and outfits so you can pack accordingly before you leave for Hawaii.
What if the weather isn't looking good for the date we booked?
Not to worry- we have lots of experience navigating the finicky weather in Hawaii. Our photoshoots take place on the driest side of the island, and in many cases, clouds can add an extra layer of depth and beautiful colors. We keep an eye on the weather and will check in with you 6 hours before your session if it is necessary to reschedule. Please note that we do not reschedule on account of clouds or wind, but if we get rained on during your session we are happy to cancel or reschedule at no cost to you.
When will my images be ready?
If you select one of our ready-made digital collections, your gallery will be delivered to you with all our standard edits via an online link 1-2 weeks after your session. If you request a complimentary design session, your proofs will be ready for your in-person viewing within 24 hours after your session.
What if I need to cancel my session?
We ask that you kindly give us at 12 hours notice if you need to cancel, in order to inform our photographer and release them from the time they have reserved for you.
I want to book a session, what's next?
