Bridal Portraits, Trash The Dress
Choosing Glen to be your wedding photographer may be the best decision you will make. Being a former wedding photographer myself, I wanted us to have the best of the best. After looking through www.photographybyglen.com and seeing his stunning photos, we knew he was gifted. Then, reading one positive testimonial after the next, we knew we had found our guy. With expectations high, we asked Glen to Photograph our wedding. Let me tell you, Glen greatly surpassed our expectations from start to finish. During the wedding, he knew exactly what to do, whom to photograph, and how to go about posing large groups of people. Glen brought a professional, yet easy going and comfortable feel to the entire photo experience. He went the extra mile in so many ways; from adjusting the collar of my shirt, to making sure that the photo sites were free from anything that would take away from the beauty of the scene. He took pictures of literally everything that was important to us, he noticed the small details. Glen had our photos ready for us way faster than I had ever expected. When it comes to your wedding, you need the best. Glen gave us the best. Thanks Glen!! It was a delight working with you :)
Glen was an absolute pleasure to work with on our wedding day! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. We didn't give him too much direction on what we wanted, but he far surpassed our expectations in coming up with poses and photo ideas throughout the day. He was very organized and brought a fun, easygoing atmosphere to the day. We were both amazed at how fast he delivered our finished photos. Thanks, Glen!
Easy to work withReviewed on 10/19/2015 Gunner H
Glen was super easy and accommodating. Hindsight being 20/20, there were probably some pictures that we would have liked that he didn't take, but that was our fault for not asking. price was right and the turnaround for getting the pictures back was super quick. Easy recommendation.
Glen was amazing! We got so many beautiful pictures it was hard to choose which ones we liked the best! Glen is so much fun to work with and has a great eye for truly amazing photography. He is very reasonably priced and provides all the photos to you in just a few days. I would recommend Glen to anyone getting married on the Big Island, hands down the best!
Glen shot my surprise engagement shoot. He was absolutely unbelievable. His kindred spirit, professionalism and graciousness is one like no other. His photos are absolutely breathtaking. He has an eye that is able to capture the real feeling of that moment and makes sure it will last forever. Many of Glens photos will be permanent staples in our house!

Great PhotographerReviewed on 4/23/2015 Angela D
Glen is a fantastic choice for any photography needs. He was very responsive from the beginning, helped me choose an officiant, was prompt, took LOTS of photos, provided us with a CD of over 300 pictures (for a 1 hour ceremony). Not only all that, but you can tell he loves what he does. He was very enthusiastic and outgoing the entire time. He made the whole event more enjoyable. Very nice guy. highly recommended.
Glen Dohie - Excellent!!Reviewed on 3/15/2015
Glen was the photographer for our wedding on the Big Island in Hawaii last Sunday. Not only is he a talented artist, but he is fun to work with. He had our photos ready for us to pick up on DVD two days after our wedding! We are very pleased with our photos and the excellent service Glen provided.
Fabulous Photographer!!Reviewed on 2/28/2015
What a great experience having Glen as our photographer! We all enjoyed his spontaneous creative energy and fun demeanor. We had a sunset beach wedding and Glen totally captured our evening. We have so many fabulous pictures that gather all the joy and emotions of our special day. Absolutely and without any hesitation, we recommend Glen to take your pictures!
The BestReviewed on 1/15/2015
Glen was a fantastic photographer for our beach wedding. He was there when we arrived and was great in showing us where we needed to be positioned for the best shots. He also went out of his way to have our photos printed and given to us before we left the Island a few days later. Our wedding package was organised by another vendor that turned out not to be the most professional wedding vendor so we were very, very lucky to have received such professional and caring service from Glen. I would not hesitate to recommend Glen's photography to any other future bride or groom.
Best Wedding Photographer Ever!!Reviewed on 1/03/2015
Glen was a perfect choice for our wedding photographer. He couldn't of done a better job. My partner and i just had a small wedding at a private rental property and wanted someone snap a few pictures to remember the special day. In an hour, Glen managed to capture over 450 photos of us, our family, and friends. It was an incredible value for what he charged us. He then managed to edit our photos and have them in our hands in less time is than a week after our wedding. The quality of the photos was over the top. He had a great personality and I would highly recommend his service any day. Thanks again Glen for capturing this very special day for us.
My Wedding Day Photographer Nailed It!Reviewed on 10/15/2014
If you want pictures for your wedding then ask your guest to take the picture for you. Everyone has a camera these days. If you are considering a photographer then you want someone who not only knows how to take the pictures but to let the pictures tell of story with the essence of the joy, love , hope and dreams that it represents. You have come to the right page. Photographer Glen was the photographer that I choose for my wedding. I looked on websites and was totally confused. God lead me to him and I have the pictures with the essence of joy, love, hope and dreams. Glen was able to capture the excitement of the crowd, the sacrament of the ceremony, and the expression of our faces as well as guest reaction. He took many pictures but was not intrusive. He climbed trees and kneeled for different angles. I had a traditional Hawaiian Wedding. He pictures showed the story of the Hawaiian legend. He slowed down the shutter to capture the droplets of water that was blessing our rings...amazing. Prior to the ceremony, Glen took the time to take snap shots of our individual uniqueness. He was able to capture the moment when the individualism disappeared and the one became two on camera....wow. He is an experience photographer who waits for that precious moment to arrive. We have pictures of the vitality of life, with loving arms embracing our beauty with the beauty of the background, the beach we choose. When the spirit of God shone in our eyes...well, Glen captured that too. He allowed my guest to be free and creative to express their joy. The memories are remarkable. His heart is behind the camera and it shows. Let me tell you a story. Tom Brady, New England Patriot Quarterback and Wes Welker was his receiver. They were unstoppable and they had a perfect season. When it was time for renewing their contract, Welker wanted more money than the budget allowed. Brady said Welker could have some of his salary. Bill Bilichick, Patriot Coach, said no. He said Welker heart was not in the game. It is focus on the money. Welker now plays for Denver Bronchos with the same salary that the Patriots originally offered. Glen is like Brady. His heart is the game. He would take the pictures just to play. If you need an expense photographer, go some where else. If you want pictures, ask your quest. If you want a photographer who wants to be there and snap the soul of the existence of one of the most important days of your life---then call Glen.
Amazing Photographer!Reviewed on 10/14/2014
My husband and I got married on the beach on the Big Island of Hawaii 10 years ago and Glen was our photographer. From the moment I contacted him about setting up a date for our destination wedding he was outstanding to work with! We emailed occasionally before we arrived in Hawaii and talked when we arrived to confirm times and date. He was easy to schedule with and does know so many people around the island that can help you with your wedding planning! From the moment we arrived on the beach, he was there, ready for us. We ended the night with a private family meal at the Hilton in which Glen stayed, was part of our family and continued the photographic journey. Our pictures were ready within two days and we were so overjoyed with the quality and beauty! Glen is so very pleasant and humble as a person and his passion for photography shines through in your pictures! He's very thorough, always snapping pictures when you don't realize it and they turn out amazing! Photography by Glen is very reasonably priced. We will be celebrating our 10 years in Hawaii and can't wait to use him again! Thank you, Glen!
for Glen Dohie PhotographyReviewed on 9/07/2014
April 23rd 2013, Glen Dohie took the most beautiful Photo's of my Daughter, her Husband and their son. We had a beautiful wedding at Honokohau harbor on the beach by the water. His photo shoot was precious and will always be cherished. His calm presence and smiley demeanor helped to keep the party at ease. He was also able to put us in touch with the gentleman who presented the vows. All in all, we could not have been more pleased. Thank-you Glen. Dr. G. L. Robson and family.
our Photos in HawaiiReviewed on 8/27/2014
I first met Glen via FB, it was his photographic flare that led me to the wedding officiant. Both were like a gelled team. I became a friend of Glen via FB and got to see his work over some 8 months building up to our wedding. In this time Glen even helped me find a make-up and hair stylist. The day of the wedding was dull and overcast...... but not the photographs. Far from it they were brilliant, vibrant and well exposed indeed. We were married on a Saturday and had a disc of +500 shots by the Tuesday. Glen is very professional and funny with it. I think he is also now a friend as he had such a magnetising personality. Thanks to Glen we have many memories in the form of colourful photographs for life. Andy & Leighsa (England)
Excellent Work!Reviewed on 8/27/2014
Glen is personal friend of ours that we've known since 1987. He took our wedding photos over 25 years ago....before the digital age! Even then, Glen put his creativity to work capturing the memories of our wedding day that will last a lifetime! Recently, on a family vacation to Hawaii, our friendship with Glen and his wife was rekindled. Now with more than 25 years of experience under his belt, Glen again put us in front of his camera and took family photos and special photos of our high school senior. We would've been content with the very first picture he snapped - it was perfect - however, he sent us home with a disc full of wonderful portraits that truly captured our special family vacation. Glen is full of creative energy and he knows all the great spots on the Big Island to get that perfect shot. It is evident that he LOVES his job! He does "excellent" work! When you work with him, you'll know what we mean! Glen is a great guy....with or without a camera in hand.
Truly a Dream Come TrueReviewed on 8/14/2014
You know how you spend so much time and effort to plan the PERFECT wedding? You want your wedding photos to show what an amazing day it was for you to remember forever. Glen does this. He is the best photographer I've ever worked with, and I've had professional photos for many occasions in my life. Glen is a true artist and he holds himself to a higher standard. He will make you laugh and smile constantly and he is very helpful with poses and creative ideas that make for remarkable photographs. Not only does he do an amazing job photographing before, during, and after the wedding ceremony, but he is also very skilled with the photo-editing process. I highly recommend Glen's photography. You will love the results!
AMAZING WORK BY GLENN!!!Reviewed on 8/04/2014
We cam to Kona from Australia, and we married on the beach. Glenn made our day so special and through his beautiful photos we will relive every moment of our Wedding. Glenn is a great guy with a warm and enriching personality, it was as if we had known him for years. Thank you so much for being a big part of our Wedding Day. Christine and Michael Australia
You Made Us ImmortalReviewed on 7/29/2014
Glen Dohie is truly a savior! With a botched, to say the least, first wedding on the Big Island, HI in 2005 my husband and I decided to renew our vows on August 18, 2013, in hopes of erasing every bad memory of the first ceremony. I was hesitant to plan and book vendors from so far away again, but I let God take the wheel, so to speak, and set out about planning our special day. Glen came with wonderful reviews from the minister that performed our original ceremony and, as we loved him so much, we started our photography search with Photography By Glen per his suggestion. Other photographers were researched, but none of the other sites seemed to offer what we wanted or were so overpriced that they would never be in the running. Photography by Glen had an ample library to review, reviews were on point, he presented himself as down to earth and laid back and was the ONLY photographer to call us back! We exchanged several emails and phone calls over the next eight months before our ceremony and each time I needed a question answered I always started with Glen; even when the questions were completely out of his photography expertise. He was so willing to help and I used almost every vendor he suggested! He knows his stuff and can be trusted...and we haven't even started to talk about his greatest talent...PHOTOGRAPHY! There is something very special about Glen Dohie. He just has a great sense of knowing who you are. We finally met in person the day of the ceremony on a beach that he photographs on often and it was like we had known each other forever. He walked us through the site and asked if we had any special shot requirements and then gave an outline of how we would proceed. He picked a beautiful spot for our vows and the resulting pictures were amazing! He was invisible before and during the ceremony and he captured some of our sweetest moments and we did not even know he was there! Sunsets on the Big Island are spectacular, but Glen's pictures made even me more beautiful than those amazingly beautiful sites! Glen made us and our day immortal in the wonderful pictures he took for us! We still cannot get enough of looking at them! I cannot believe we get to live these memories forever! Every time we return to the Big Island we will call upon the masterful Glen Dohie to immortalize our love and life at the same spot with his amazing photographs! Thank you so much Glen...we love you and are proud to now also call you a friend! Glen is professional, honest, trustworthy and very hard working and not using his talent would be a mistake! We had our first glimpse of photos within 24 hours and within 48 hours our CD was personally handed to us with all edits done! I am an amateur photographer and I was blown away with the quality of his work! I just cannot say enough about how spectacular he is! If you are looking for the best...you found it Photography by Glen!
Awesome Airport Vow RenewalReviewed on 7/12/2014
On our most recent trip to the Big Island of Hawaii, Glen did a photo shoot for our wedding vow renewal (a surprise to my wife) at Old Kona Airport State Park. It was a sunset ceremony that provided a gorgeous backdrop to this occasion. I first contacted Glen by email which he promptly replied to that provided all the details of his services. I then spoke with Glen by phone (from the Chicago Area), to etch things in stone. I called him upon arrival to the Kona area to confirm that all was good to go. On the day of the ceremony, Glen was scouting the site location prior to our arrival. He had the instinct to not approach us (keeping the surprise) until my wife was distracted with the scenery, then I told him it was us and that the surprise was still on. Our photo shoot was a total of an hour and included the ceremony itself as well as several photos that told a storyline all the way to sundown. He provided us with a DVD and all the photos that we were free to copy without having to go through him once we left the island. He even included a blank photo album for us to put together with all of our favorites. We just looked at all the photos of which we are very pleased with each and every one. Glen did a superior job on all aspects of his assignment and we highly recommend him to anyone who visits the Kona area. Sincerely, Tim and Judy Grutzius
Photography by GlenReviewed on 7/09/2014
We were married November 9, 2013 and Glen Dohie was our photographer. He provided over 300 photos and they were everything we had hoped for and more. He is very easy-going, creative, and knowledgeable about how to get the best photos. He is personable and truly seems to enjoy what he does. If we had to do it all over, there would be no hesitation to have him photograph our wedding again. Words can't express how thankful we are! ...and my wife says she agrees with what I've written, which in itself says volumes more than what I've said!
Pictures that bring Love & Life!Reviewed on 7/09/2014 Joy T
Glen Dohie is an extraordinary photographer! Not only did he have great energy to do the job, but his positivity was contagious. For me, as the bride, that was a huge help on my big day! We got our picture DVD's very quickly and Glen was able to capture the love and life that filled our day! My husband and I were especially blessed to see each emotion and moment reflected genuinely in each photograph. We can easily relive the moment when looking at our wedding pictures. To be able to do so is a tremendous blessing! Prior to our wedding, Glen had also taken our engagement photos and our son's senior pictures. We've been pleased each time and will definitely use him for future family photos!
great photosReviewed on 7/09/2014
Glen was recommended by the officiant I hired and I am glad we used his services. He was friendly, confirmed everything and got to our wedding location before us. He took tons of photos and made us both feel great about being in the spotlight even though neither of us were used to it. A few days later he dropped off a CD at our hotel with all the pictures (which were already edited so they are all good) so we can share them online and get prints and albums made.
Glen is full of positive energy, very professional and a great photographerReviewed on 7/09/2014
We really love our pictures by Glen Dohie! I think my wife's father said it best - "The composition, color, majestic backgrounds, and natural emotion of the wedding that you were able to capture in your still photographs just blew me away. My wife and I felt as if we were there. I know that Lisa and Billy will cherish these photos for the rest of their lives. Thank you." Glen is great with "framing" your shots so that the sun is in the right place or the other scenery is well positioned. He is very efficient with his equipment and will get plenty of photos so you won't miss anything. Glen is a professional with a kind heart and it shows from the minute he shows up for your photo session until he hands you the disc with your edited memories. He would always be out top choice for a Photographer on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Wedding renewalReviewed on 6/30/2014
We renewed our wedding in 2012 in Kona Hawaii and I found Glen through google listing. I choose him primarily because he was a good fit for my budget but I was later amazed at the quality of work I received with the photos he took of my family. We got quality pictures without paying a lot of money for it. I recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a talented photographer in the Kona area.
