Your Vacation Photographer in Kauai: Meet Kazumi

Kazumi is often in NYC and Tokyo. Please inquire.

In Kauai, there is no travel fee between Hanalei Bay to Shipwreck Beach on Poipu; beyond there, Kazumi must charge $40 and up depending on distance. 

***Please note: Kazumi will be unavailable October 11 - November 20, 2017.

I am passionate about capturing the true beauty in each person. Since I was little, I have believed that everyone is beautiful. I specialize in family portraits, maternity and weddings here in Hawaii. I have also lived in Japan and NYC, where I mostly concentrated on fashion and editorial. My work has been published in many magazines in Asia and Europe.

Three Things

  1. I wanted to be a photographer since I was 6, but I also wanted to be a ballerina. I realized around age 21 that I have more gift for photography than dance.
  2. I couldn't live without a good sleep. I sleep very well - and each morning makes me happy!
  3. Some my friends said I have a power to relax others, but not about getting bored with me that they said (I hope!). Oh, also many of my friends say I am an alien. I don't really know why....

Favourite Place to Shoot in Kauai
There are so many great spots here, like Poipu beach and many beaches on the north side. Not many people enjoy the east side, and I love Kealia and Papa'a beach!
