We chose Adam as our wedding photographer because he was also the wedding photographer for my sister's wedding 8 years ago. I had worked with him and seen his work so it made it easy for us to decide who we wanted. We really enjoyed working with him for our family photoshoot... Read More and our wedding because he's such an easygoing, friendly and professional guy. The colours in our photos were amazing and we're really happy with the turnout. The BEST part is that we got our wedding photos in TWO WEEKS! It's unheard of, I know. All our friends were shocked by how fast he got them done. Also, it was really sweet of him to rush a "few" photos for us to use in a slideshow for a wedding banquet we had back home the week after our wedding in Hawaii. By a few, I mean 100 photos. We're looking forward to working with him again in the future when we have even more additional family members!

Adam photographed our wedding on July 12,2016. Every aspect of the experience was absolutely wonderful! Adam is a very nice guy to work with. He was laid back, sweet, and funny.

We got our pictures back and I had no idea that they could look so beautiful! He framed the shots perfectly from unique perspectives and he made it look effortless the whole time he was photographing. If you are planning to hire Adam for your photography needs, I would recommend it 110%. I am so thankful for how well he captured that day with my family and I will cherish those pictures for many years to come. Every single one is a work of art.

Amazing Photographer, Great Guy Too

My wife and I had Adam shoot photography at both our wedding and also a pre-wedding beach photo shoot. Both were well done and have timelessly captured memories of our special time in Hawaii. Adam recommended a beach that was quiet along the North Shore and was absolutely... Read More stunning. He was flexible, easy to work with and also really easy going as a person. He also speaks Japanese! We found with many vendors in Hawaii that they take a long time to reply, but Adam was exceptional. He replied within 24 hours to nearly all our questions and his timely responses made it much less stressful for us as we planned our destination wedding. His photography skills are unquestionably great and also, he gave us all the originals to play with. Many photographers are very strict about only selling you the ones you choose, charging you a fortune, and never giving you the rest. We are thankful that Adam was so open about it. We would highly recommend Adam to anyone in Hawaii for their wedding or other photography.

It was so great meeting and working with Adam well-- my husband and I thought he was so professional yet easygoing, and we appreciated how patient and friendly he was to not only us, but to our family, the wedding party, and other guests.

The sunset photos were absolutely amazing, and we also really appreciated Adam staying extra at the reception when we were running a little behind during the program (without charging us extra).

Planning a destination wedding can be stressful but Adam was wonderful to work with from beginning to end! He was prompt with replying to emails and answered questions thoroughly. His web site is very informative and easy to work with. He was even able to suggest other vendors...

He was great at organizing all the family mer so people weren't just standing around. He also took my husband and I, and the wedding party to other location. He had the photos edited and online within two weeks for us to view and download. His work is fantastic and I am so glad he was able to capture all the wonderful moments of our wedding day.

What can I say about Adam Palmer that hasn't already been said? We looked and researched long and hard when trying to choose a photographer for our wedding on the windward coast of Oahu. It was difficult making a decision without actually being able to meet with anyone,... Read More being that we did not live on the island. Based on reviews, his portfolio and pricing, Adam seemed to be exactly what we were looking for. He made everything easy and was extremely laid back and easy to work with. He arrived early and left late. The pictures that he took were nothing short of amazing. The staged photos that Adam took were excellent but where he really shines is in capturing moments. The photos he took allow us to relive the memory of the great day we had celebrating our wedding with friends and family. Along with his amazing eye for photos, Adam is an all around great guy and was a fun presence to have at the wedding as well. I strongly recommend Adam without any hesitation. My wife and I will be returning to Oahu in the future and will be making a call to Adam to take more photos when we do. Amazing quality, value and service. 100% in my book!

Hire Adam!

My husband and I strongly recommend hiring Adam as your wedding photographer. He was highly recommended by one of our friends who hired him a few years ago for her wedding, and we are so happy we heard about him! Our experience with Adam was outstanding. From our very first... Read More contact til the big day, he was very prompt in communication (responding to emails, phone calls, etc.). On our wedding day, my husband and I felt so comfortable working with him, and when we took shots together it felt really natural (vs feeling posed). Adam is incredibly laid back, but still really professional at the same time, and obviously an experienced photographer. We truly feel that he captured all the special moments in our day - once we received our photos, we felt like we didn't even need the videographer we hired! We also really liked that all his packages included full photo rights. Besides giving you a cd of all images, he'll upload your photos at full quality to his website. We shared the link with our friends and family and got so many compliments!

Adam was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish. We chose Adam because of his prices and reviews. We liked that on his website he stated he believed that the pictures should be the bride and grooms not his and that he gave all rights to the pictures and even gave... Read More you a disk. He had several packages to choose from,we just went with the basic 2 hours of shooting, no editing or prints. The day before he sent me a text reconfirming which was great! On the day of he was there even before we were, and he started shooting immediately and didnt stop for the entire 2 hours we had him booked. A few weeks after the wedding he posted the pictures online for us to view and download if we'd like, and shortly after the high resolution disk came in the mail. I still look at the pictures every night, I just cant get enough of them. He did an amazing job and took wonderful pictures. He made sure to ask us what kind of pictures we wanted. We gave him free rein and I'm glad we did because shots I would have never thought of he took. He is a talented photographer and I want to get married all over again just so I can use his services another time. I highly highly recommend Adam

My husband and I hired Adam Palmer as our photographer after looking at websites and our budget. We decided to go with Adam and chose the basic package due to our small budget. I was given recommendations for other photographers and saw other photographers work around the... Read More island and honestly was a little sad that we couldn't afford the "fancy" photographer. I couldn't be more happy with our choice. Adam was excellent! He was happy, fun, and professional and made the daunting task of taking our wedding photos feel very relaxed and natural. He was great about responding to all my questions and concerns through email and by phone. Sometimes he was so quick, I forgot there was a five hour time difference between us! Our wedding pictures are everything I had wanted and more. We have great traditional photographs of us and our family and friends, and nontraditional pictures that are more like great art than pictures. I am totally impressed with this guy, and will look him up first when we go back to Hawaii with our family. I am so happy that we went with Adam, and was even told by one of our vendors that the other photographer we had considered could be a b*** and we would have a lot of fun with Adam. We recieved our picture disks and now have full copyright rights to reproduce the pictures any way we want. We also have the option to purchase our pictures online off of Adam's website. Adam was a joy to work with and we are more than happy with our wedding pictures. I would recommed him to anyone wanting professional photographs in Hawaii; you will be more than happy with the results!
