Frequently Asked Questions

03. Can I have RAW images?

No, I spend more time editing then I do shooting you two! Editing is such an art to me and I love it, I deliver all edited JPEG images on an online gallery with full access for you to download. My editing is all over my Instagram and website so you should expect the same edits for your gallery.

For couple sessions the turnaround time is 4-6weeks. For weddings and elopements it is 8-10 weeks! I hate leaving you hanging so I always send 5-10 sneak peeks the week after your session, because who likes to wait?

09. What Happens if we need to Cancel or Reschedule?

Your deposit is nonrefundable in any case. Why? because once you secure your date with me, I have already said no to other couples for your date that you secured. If you want to reschedule there is a rescheduling fee of $100 to secure your new date + your retainer.

10. What happens if the Weather is Bad and Rainy?

I am all about communicating & preparation. Whenever you choose your locations we will come up with a plan B that will most likely not be raining. Hawaii is always windy, to be honest but it makes the best photos, Hawaii is also bipolar with the weather, it could be raining for 5 mins then clear up for us. I am always down to get rained on unless its dumping and damaging my gear, this is why I communicate 2 days before our session to see what we want to do and also the night before and the morning of! I am very flexible and will make anything work for you guys!

11. Do you offer Mentor Sessions?

I wanted to find someone that was able to shoot real photos and make it feel more like us than a staged photoshoot. After our engagement shoot in Maui we were so in love with all our photos, we felt like you captured us; our goofy, always seem to be laughing side. Having never met and only talking via text, email and a one-time phone call I couldn't believe how easy and natural it felt to be shooting with you. There was no awkward tension, we felt at ease and comfortable around you, which was so huge as my husband is usually slightly socially introverted. Seeing him open up and feel so natural was so amazing for me. For us it just felt like an instant, organic connection with you! So when we found out everything could work out for us to have you share our wedding day in Jasper with you, we were so relieved, and beyond excited! We were so beyond happy with our engagement photos that it is no doubt we are obviously in love with our jasper wedding photos; the natural light, airiness and easy flow and nature of them are incredible.

Thanks for Adventuring with us! Love Lauren + Cody

"...For us it just felt like an instant, organic connection with you!"

We pre-booked the shoot before arriving on Maui. Of course with my luck, the day of the engagement shoot we woke up to rain (the only day out of our entire trip that had unexpected rain). Tehani messaged me that morning to check-in and even offered to move the shoot to the following day to avoid the rain. She was still down to go for it with an umbrella in hand, but obviously wanted the best for us and to make sure we were happy with the whole experience. In the end, we decided to chance it… I had seen photos from one of Tehani’s previous shoots in pouring rain which still turned out amazing so I had no worries. Luckily it wasn’t raining by the time we got up to the trail, just foggy and a little muddy which we didn’t mind at all. We had a lot of fun as we were shooting. Usually, neither of us feel comfortable in front of a camera, but Tehani guided us through the whole thing. Everything felt natural and not awkward at all. A few days later Tehani sent us some teasers and we were so impressed with how well they turned out!! 

Love, Ashley + Charlie

When it comes to professional photography at your wedding in Maui, do not let anyone tell you it’s not worth it to spend money for quality! Tehani absolutely blew us away with her talent and attention to detail. I came across Tehani Bella Photography before I got engaged on Maui and I instantly knew that I wanted to have Tehani shoot my wedding one day. Although I knew she would be excellent, she absolutely exceeded all of our expectations! She made us feel completely ourselves in front of her lens and was able to capture such genuine and raw emotion in our photos. Especially the Olowalu wedding property We can’t thank her enough for being such a big part of our wedding day!

Thanks for caring about the details of our day! Ashley + Cory
