Aloha, lovely souls! We are Matt & Tamao, a passionate husband and wife team dedicated to turning your special moments into timeless memories. We’re not just photographers and videographers; we’re storytellers, memory-makers, and believers in the magic of every unique love story.
We bring a unique blend of creativity, professionalism, and a personal touch to every project. Our journey is driven by the desire to capture the warmth, the laughter, and the pure, unfiltered love that binds us all.
Matt and Tamao did such an amazing job filming our wedding. They had all aspects covered during our day and were great at giving instruction, as needed, to get the perfect shot. The end result was a video that perfectly encompassed our Kauai dream wedding. Thank you again for all your hard work and creating such an amazing piece of art!
Went above and beyond to make sure our engagement was captured flawlessly! So thankful for the Aya team. Consider them friends after the time we spent with them…and we had never met prior to the shoot! We are thrilled with the end results.
I can’t say enough amazing things about our experience with Tamao and Matt. Not only was the video incredible and everything we hoped for, but the journey along the way was also equally as perfect. Anytime you spend a lot of money on a service you want to make sure it’s worth the cost, especially as everything little thing adds up with weddings. I can say without a doubt that it’s worth every penny. They are extremely talented but the best part is that you can tell they love what they do and they truly care about their clients best interest. Those 3 combinations are the perfect recipe for an EPIC wedding video you will never forget. If you’re on the fence because it’s an added expense and you’re thinking you might be happy with just photos… put that to rest and at least take a look at their portfolio and chat with them!
Our photographer was so much fun! She gave such good direction and optimized every moment she could to get the perfect picture! We felt so comfortable with her and appreciated the experience!
WOW, WOW, WOW. I am going write a short review first with my lengthy review underneath (for some who want quick reviews and some who like detailed reviews because Tamao really deserves both!).
Tamao was an absolute delight to work / collaborate with! She was extremely responsive, very kind and patient when helping us decide where to shoot and so flexible with her schedule!
I have never done a professional photo shoot before where I am the center of attention and where it is so intimate, but she put us such ease! I was really nervous and started to completely freeze during the shoot but somehow she was able to perfectly capture the two of us!
Her prices are also reasonable compared to a few other photographers I reached out to with her similar style of photo shoots. I highly highly recommend Tamao!
Our experience working with them could not have been better!
These guys are fantastic. Our wedding was canceled last minute and they helped us plan our dream elopement in less than a week! They took us to some incredible local spots we never would’ve found on our own. Everything about our elopement day was magical, and we cannot thank these guys enough.
We were hesitant on getting having a video of our ceremony (and afterwards done). I am so glad we decided to go through it. A super cute husband and wife duo, they make an amazing team. What I thought was going to be awkward, they made so incredibly fun and special. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the video was when we got it. I have watched it a million times. You can tell so much effort and thought goes into detail and they do an amazing job. Very talented! Don’t for one second try to talk yourself out of doing this! You will not regret it.
We were totally lost and going crazy trying to figure out wedding plans for a covid wedding, and then I met Tamao (over the phone of course). She addressed our concerns about traveling to Hawaii, calmed our fears, and helped we us realize our dream of getting married in Kauai. On our wedding day, her and Matt were extremely helpful, accommodating, and very professional. They made feel comfortable and the cameras disappeared. This was a HUGE win because my husband usually turns pink and stiff in front of a camera. They coached us the whole time, played music, and encouraged our love to be seen through the lens. We loved that they were a hubby & wife team! They worked together so well too, so efficient, kind to one another, and encouraging of us. Best of all, our wedding video and pictures authentically captured forevermore. Literally everyone, including acquaintances, that watch the wedding video cries, it’s THAT good. I cannot stress this enough, if you are lucky enough to hire Tamao and Matt for your wedding/special day get the video, you will cherish it always and forever. My deepest appreciation for Tamao & Matt for capturing the best moments of our wedding day.
