First things first, lets get to know each other. I think it's really important to make sure that we get along well. One thing I will always tell my clients is to choose the vendors who they have the best connection with, since you will be working and spending a lot of time with them on your wedding day. And you want to find someone who makes you feel comfortable. But really my ultimate goal is to leave our experience as friends more than just your photographer.
If you are ready to book, we can talk about which package will fit you best. I have a list of pre-made packages for you to look through - but - if you are working with a budget please let me know and we can talk about creating a custom package for you that works best for the both of us.
Now to my favorite part (so far). I highly recommend doing engagement photos since it's a chance for us to work together before the wedding - and get the camera jitters out of the way. A lot of people worry about being awkward in front of the camera, but truth is it takes everyone a minute to get comfortable. Once you realize its all about hanging out with your best friend & love of your life, that's when the magic happens.
The people in the wedding industry here in Hawaii are the absolute best. I've met some of the kindest & most talented people while working in the wedding industry for over 8 years. I also know weddings like the back of my hand at this point, so if you have any questions about timelines (especially how much time it takes for certain photo portions of the day) I would be happy to help however I can.

We’re so lucky to have found Amber from Schyne Photography. She is such a blessing and joy to work with. On your wedding day I feel like everything goes by so quickly and she not only captured time and precious moments but she did it with ease and love and without skipping a beat. She made my husband and I feel super relaxed during our time with her. She took us to one of her many favorite places to shoot and she was kind enough to drive to even drive us there, she even snapped a couple of Polaroids for me when I asked her to!
She is on time, talented, and makes you feel comfortable and has an eye like nobody else in this world. The light & moments she captures in photos are like nothing I’ve ever seen before and I’m so thankful we found her.
I highly recommend Amber Schoniwitz. She’s such a wonderful person to be around and talk to. (Also, she sends “sneaks” early photos) I know how impatient we all can be at times … We absolutely will be using her again for all of our photography wants and needs.
Thank you again Amber. You’re the best!
Backyard wedding, Honolulu, Hawaii
Our day was filled to the brim with joy and butterflies. Getting married was the best choice we made, but choosing Amber to capture our day is a close runner up. She is honestly magic! We felt so comfortable and so secure with her. Her presence was that of the sweetest support and warmest encouragement. She helped us be ourselves and capture how we feel for each other with ease and delight. It was so simple and so fun having her there to guide us and cheer us on. Amber gave us ease and reminded us that the day was ours.
We loved to see our bond unhinged through every photo she captured, so much so that the decision for our maternity and newborn portraits were made effortlessly, yet with so much trust.
She has captured every major milestone in our married life. She has become a cornerstone in our family. Seeing our love and life through her lens has made these chapters that much sweeter.
South Side O'ahu Engagement
Working with Amber felt like hanging out with an old friend! She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and knew exactly how to pose us to get a beautiful shot without being pushy! She is so down to earth and truly talented. My friends and family couldn’t believe our photos - they are so special to us and there is no one else we’d rather have as our wedding photographer!! We’d recommend Amber to anyone!

Amber was awesome! She communicates well, which is nice during a busy and stressful period. She was very accommodating and worked really well with our videography crew. They made us feel so comfortable and Amber's vision of our shots was so creative, which made our pictures come out beautiful. We can honestly say that you will not regret hiring Amber and her crew.
We at Modern Elopement have extremely high standards and expectations and Amber with Schyne Photography always delivers. She is professional and curtious and truly cares about our wedding couples. She is prepared and always over delivers. Her full galleries are consistently beautiful and she pays attention to the details when shooting and editing. We highly recommend Schyne Photography to any bride.

I know investing in a photographer for your wedding is a huge decision, one that should not be taken lightly. I would love to talk to you more about what package would work best for you. You can choose from a list of pre-designed packages, or I am more than willing to work with your budget and personalize a package that would fit you best.
