From start to finish Simple Hawaii Wedding and their staff had amazing communication and made sure everything fell into place! My husband and I love our officiant, Auntie Tutu, and how she spent time getting to know us as a couple and made sure our ceremony was perfect. My flowers were beautiful, and our photographer and location were perfect! Mahalo! – Steve & Tina Bonanno

Experience and Accolades

Our Big Island wedding photographer, Karma Hill Photography, is an award-winning professional photography team. Karma Hill Photography has been on The Knot’s Best of Weddings list every year from 2017- 2024 and is part of the Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame. With 154 reviews and a 5-star rating on Google, customers attest to their amazing photographic quality and exceptional customer service.

About the photographers

Owner and founder Karma Hill has personally trained our wedding photography team on the Big Island on the challenging Hawaii lighting and the intricacies of wedding photography. Capturing the perfect moments, posing, and engaging couples and guests for the most authentic and beautiful images. Their airy, dreamy, cinematic style will have you looking back on your wedding photos with love and awe. Each team member embarks on extensive training on morning and sunset light, so whichever time of day you choose, your photos will be delivered in the signature style they are so well known for.

Photo Editing Process

In addition to their outstanding photographic quality straight out of the camera, Karma Hill Photography employs a team of professional editors trained in the most advanced editing technology. Unlike a one-person operation editing photos while sipping wine and watching Netflix late into the night, their professional full-time office staff ensures meticulous editing to enhance every detail. Our editing team goes above and beyond by removing distractions like beachgoers or signage so all you remember is your perfect day and love for one another.

Sneak Peek of Your Wedding Photos

Karma Hill Photography will craft a Sneak Peek of your wedding photos within one week of your ceremony. Having a ‘Sneak Peek’ of your wedding photos allows you to easily share highlights with family and friends or post them on social media. Typically featuring around 20 photos in a timeline-style presentation, this preview offers a delightful glimpse into your special day before the full editing process, which typically takes about a month, is completed.

Dedicated Coordination Team – Hawaii Wedding Planning

Unlike many other Big Island wedding planning companies, we have a dedicated team of planners whose sole focus is organizing your wedding and coordinating all vendors.

Some wedding companies try to handle numerous roles such as officiant, planner, photographer, and florist. We, however, have dedicated team members specializing solely in wedding coordination. We believe that making this task one function delivers the highest quality experience and service to you.

Thanks to our extensive wedding planning team, we have backups for every aspect of your wedding planning needs. In the rare event of an illness or emergency affecting an officiant or photographer, we have a roster of exceptional professionals ready to step in at a moment’s notice.

With over 20 years of experience coordinating events in Hawaii, our dedicated team offers unparalleled expertise and attention to detail.

Below are just a few of the tasks our coordinators handle for you:

Venue Selection Assistance

Our team will contact and book Big Island wedding venues or assist with beach location selection based on your preferences and expectations. We will help you create the vision of your dreams in paradise!

Create a Timeline

Our coordination team will craft a timeline that ensures you arrive at the location optimally for the best lighting and weather conditions. This is particularly crucial for sunset weddings, as timing must be precise to capture stunning beach photos before darkness sets in.

Guidance Through the Marriage License Process

Navigating the legal requirements for obtaining a marriage license can be daunting. Let us simplify the process for you by providing step-by-step guidance and ensuring all necessary paperwork is completed correctly and on time.

Ensuring Proper Permits and Insurance

You can relax knowing that your wedding venue is fully compliant with all local regulations and adequately insured. For beach weddings, we’ll take care of obtaining permits and having the proper insurance coverage to ensure your celebration proceeds without a hitch and fully complies with state regulations.

Expert Vendor Coordination

Our experienced team excels in coordinating vendors to ensure flawless execution of your wedding vision. From photographers to florists, we’ll liaise with each vendor, manage timelines, confirm them prior to your day, and oversee setup to guarantee a seamless and stress-free experience.

Access to Trusted Professionals

Access our curated list of preferred vendors, including top-notch hair and makeup artists. We’ve carefully vetted each professional to ensure they meet our high standards of quality and reliability, allowing you to choose the perfect team for your special day confidently.

Day of Wedding Coordinator

With each of our wedding packages (excluding the Just the Two of Us Package), we provide an on-site coordinator to ensure your ceremony runs smoothly. Having an on-site coordinator is paramount to managing the flow of guests and vendors and ensuring the wedding couple knows where and when to go, stand, and make your ceremony smooth with zero stress to you!

The wedding coordinator arrives at the location before our couples and their guests to ensure everything is as it should be and can promptly address any issues or changes, such as ceremony setup, beach conditions, or weather. Additionally, they manage the flow of people, including vendors such as photographers, musicians, and florists, directing them to their designated areas.

The day-of wedding coordinator also serves as the project manager for the day. If unforeseen circumstances, such as road closures, could hinder vendors or supplies from reaching your wedding, they can swiftly communicate with vendors and our office-based team to adjust plans and ensure the wedding proceeds smoothly.

Onsite coordinators also provide extra eyes to ensure everything looks perfect. They can assist in ensuring the couple looks their best, safeguard belongings during the ceremony on a public beach, and handle tasks like holding the bouquet or leis and assisting with a wedding dress or veil during couples photos.

Having an on-site coordinator is invaluable in alleviating stress by managing tasks. They allow you to fully enjoy your day without worrying about the multitude of details that need attention during the ceremony.
