who we are

Aloha! I'm Erin and I photograph super rad families and weddings on Kauai and worldwide for people who cherish real life (including fights, saying sorry, and getting dirty), who find moments of connection meaningful and precious, who are touchy-feely, and who can laugh at the craziness that comes from being a part of a family who deeply love one another.

I'm not into super posed, forced moments, or controlling every hair into place, but if you're all about letting go, being real, and loving on your family with big hugs and togetherness, then I'm your girl.

I'm not for you if:• You're going to freak out or get upset if your kids get wet or dirty. I specialize in capturing real, authentic life, which includes a lot of dirty moments, especially when kids are involved. Let them play and be themselves! Those ones will mean the most in the future.
I'm not for you if: •Your group is large (more than 15). Since I focus on capturing the interactions between people, I've found that the expections of posed images of multiple groupings that happen in really large sessions take away from the purpose of the type of session I offer.
I'm not for you if:• You want your session to be mostly posed, everyone smiling at the camera photos, (I'll of course take some of those for Grandma or Christmas cards). Shots with people looking away from the camera very often end up being my favorites.

I found Erin online and absolutely loved her photos so I was super excited that she was available for our photo shoot. She is very easy going and listened to all of my suggestions and requests and was so comfortable to work with. She even brought a little surprise for my son and found ways to make him come out of his shell. What I think made a big difference is the fact that the 3 of us really connected with her. The photos exceeded our expectations, they are beyond beautiful and will cherish them forever. So happy to have hired her and would definitely contact her again if we are so lucky to make it back to Kauai. She truly is one of a kind!

I feel like I discovered a gold mine when I found Erin as a photographer! I have used her services several times, and each time I am amazed at her talent. The way she is able to use natural lighting, her familiarity with the best photo spots on the island, and even her suggestions for color combinations for our outfits, always produce the perfect results. (And I actually hang up the photos she has taken on my wall!) Her professional, yet calm and friendly personality really sets the tone and makes everyone so comfortable throughout the whole process.
Erin turns casual moments into magic with her camera!

We cannot say enough great things about Erin! She kindly agreed to photograph a special moment for our family while on vacation in Kauai and we were blown away by the images we received from her. Her eye for capturing the right moment is a true gift. From our initial correspondence to our online proofing session to receiving our images and beyond, Erin is a caring soul and a true professional. My family is so thankful for Erin and the talent she possesses. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and look forward to working with her the next time we are in Hawaii. Thank you Erin!parents kissing two children playing Kauai beach Shipwrecks

"Every photographer has a style or signature. Erin's style sets her apart from the rest. Her unique and raw style is true and simply genuine.  I absolutely loved my intimate, In-Home maternity photo shoot with Erin. Her eye for the perfect composition sets her apart from typical photographers. She made me feel comfortable, confident and relaxed throughout the whole process. She was able to incorporate, enhance and embody all of my requests for location, poses, and outfits, given the allotted time. I have never felt so empowered. She artistically captured the growth of life in the most eloquent way possible.  I also love that she shoots in Film. This allows her to be present and fully involved in the photo shoot because of the need to capture the perfect shot. I highly recommend Erin and cannot wait to do family photo sessions with her in the future."

"If I could give Erin more than 5 stars I would! We first met Erin in 2013 when my mom, my sister's family and my family wanted family pictures taken while we were on vacation in Poipu. We LOVED working with her! We had a large group and Erin was so patient. She took her time and made sure everyone felt comfortable.She made the little ones feel at ease. She didn't rush us and made sure we got all the shots we wanted. Her artistry shines through on her photos!

We were so impressed with Erin's work, when we returned to Poipu in 2015, we knew without a doubt we wanted to work with her again. She did not disappoint. The emotions that come across in her photos are so beautiful. Kauai is such a magical place to visit and now we have tangible photos to remember our trip by. I can't wait until we go back and get to see Erin again!

From the first contact online to seeing your proofs, Erin is a professional and a delight to work with. She returned emails and answered questions all very promptly. I highly recommend Erin Gregerson Photography!"
