I found a photographer I wanted for my February 2014 elopement but when I realized our schedules wouldn't match, I was bummed. I asked him for recommendations and he suggested Rebecca. I now think it was a fateful set of circumstances that led us to have her and Nick shoot our intimate wedding.
It's a bit daunting to think of sharing your wedding day, especially one that you've decided to keep so intimate, with strangers. We spoke with Rebecca over the phone and felt so relaxed chatting with her about us and our journey to marriage. When Rebecca and Nick arrived to shoot the wedding we immediately felt like we'd known them for years. That's just the type of people they are.
I can't put into words how amazing our wedding was. We had the greatest time getting married and taking shots all over Waipi'o Valley. Rebecca has a great eye and knows exactly how to set up a shot to take your breath away. The first set of pictures she sent us while we were still honeymooning knocked me out. I had to have my new husband pull over so we could digest the shots pixel by pixel, bite by bite. I sent the pictures to a few loved ones and everyone was amazed at the quality of shots. They really look like a magazine shoot.
Rebecca and Nick understand photography. Not just the technical aspect but the emotional one. You need to have the couple be as relaxed as possible to capture those magical, natural moments. As I look back on the pictures (it's honestly hard to pick a favorite) I remember all those little moments of playing, laughing and frolicking in the ocean with my new husband. All of it was captured in those photos.
We feel incredibly lucky that we had Rebecca and Nick as our photographers. They allowed us to be ourselves and made our day so special and fun. We hope to do another session with them as our family grows.

Shortly after meeting Rebecca, my husband and I knew that there was no other option for choosing someone to capture our wedding day. Leading up to and during our wedding, she was absolutely a joy to work with. Rebecca and her husband, Nick have an eye for "the shot" and the proof really is in the pictures. The light, love, happiness and feel of the day are captured in literally every image that she returned to us. The only issue I had was picking which images to frame, there were way too many to choose from.

Rebecca and Nick were truly amazing to work with. So easy, so unbelievably kind and sweet, and so professional. I searched high and low for the perfect photographer, and interviewed several until I decided on Rebecca. She called me and my fiancé to get to know us, and answered all of our questions patiently. What I found so incredible about her was that, as a Hawaii-born girl who also lived on the mainland, she completely understood how to capture the natural beauty of Hawaii....but layered with a sophisticated, luxurious feel. Not only that, but she and Nick knew how to capture the emotion of the day. Some of the shots she took of my mom and I dancing our "first dance" were among my favorite. SO many of our friends and family echoed that thought when they saw our photos. They mentioned how amazing and "perfect" yet how REAL the photography was. I will say this too--she makes EVERYONE look good in front of the camera! Young, old--doesnt matter! Everyone looked absolutely radiant in our photos. I would hire Rebecca and Nick again in a heartbeat. In fact, I've already told her that when my husband and I return to the islands with a family, we will hire them for our family photos!

I used Rebecca Arthurs for my wedding in Hawaii and she is fabulous. Both her and her husband worked together to get different angles and amazing shots.
Rebecca is really easy to talk to and open to any suggestions I had for things i wanted for my photos. After seeing her photos I truly felt bautiful on my wedding day. I would use her again in a heart beat.

We couldn't have had a better experience. Rebecca and her husband Nick were fantastic through the whole process. Not only are they incredibly talented, they are awesome people, a very down to earth couple. They were both so relaxed and flexible the day of our wedding and leading up to. We felt like they were guests at our wedding we had known forever. We had our wedding at the Regatta Place in Newport RI, it was a beautiful day and Rebecca and Nick documented our day exactly as we want to remember it forever.

I have said it from day one, Rebecca was the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. Her photos are something out of a magazine! I cannot tell you how many compliments we have received on our engagement and wedding photos. She is an absolute dream to work with. She always answered my questions leading up to the wedding, was very flexible, and accommodating throughout the whole process. If you are looking for a photographer who thinks outside the box and gives you the feeling that your wedding photos should truly be a piece of art, she is your choice! We really appreciated the uniqueness of the images she captured and feel so thankful that we will have them to enjoy forever. Go with Rebecca, I can guarantee she will not disappoint and would recommend her to anyone.

I cannot tell you how happy we were with Rebecca!! She was extremely easy to work with, she was very flexible, extremely professional the day of our wedding and we loved hearing her creative ideas. The one comment we heard from our wedding party and guest were you didn't evern know she was there, but she caught every opportunity for a photo! She made a somewhat stressful day very calming for both my fiance and I. We were so please with the work she created I would highly recommend Rebecca Arthurs Phototgraphy!

Rebecca was the photographer for our wedding on January 19, 2012 at Lanikuhonua in Oahu. I found Rebecca Arthurs Photography by looking through vendors on the knot. I went to her website and instantly fell in love with the photos. I was so glad that she was available to shoot our wedding. We had an absolutely fantastic time taking pictures with Rebecca. Initially, I had thought that I only wanted a few shots of us and our family and that Rebecca could feel free to shoot whatever else she wanted as it happened. Instead, we ended up spending the better part of an hour just taking pictures and I loved every second of it. Rebecca is so easy to work with and although we have only seen a few photos so far (we just got married a week ago) the pictures are amazing! I absolutely love them and cannot wait to see more. I would highly recommend Rebecca Arthurs Photography to anyone. Thank you for everything Rebecca!!

My husband and I got engaged on 10/20/11 and we had a trip pre-planned to Kauai during the first week of November. He had the idea of eloping, which I LOVED, but it didn't register that he meant in 10 days. The two most important things on my agenda for this wedding were the DRESS and a phenominal photographer, after all I needed great pictures to show everyone back home.
Well we got more than we ever hoped for with Rebecca. Working with Rebecca was a blessing, we got very lucky since we were able to book her on such short notice and her style was exactly what I was looking for. Classic, clean, TIMELESS, her photographer eludes to an era of elegance and beauty.
Rebecca as a person is delightful. She's fun, easy-going and we laughed throughout the day. Mind you Rebecca was VERY important since I didn't have a bridesmaid, she always made sure I looked my best--- she's fantastic!
Our pictures were amazing! I have to say I was unable to choose a favorite she there are so many that I feel in love with. My family and friends were mezmorized by our photos...the comment which we received most often was that our pictures belong on the cover of a bridal magazine.
I truly can't wait to go back to Hawaii and have another photo shoot with Rebecca in the future.
Thank you so much for our beautiful memories.
Love William and Patrycja Lenkin

It was extremely important for me to find a wedding photographer that was able to truly capture every moment of our wedding day. I can't even begin to count how many hours I spent searching for the right photographer. Several times I thought I had found the right one, only to speak with them and realize they weren't what I was looking for. I sent countless links to my sisters who would give me lukewarm responses, only solidifying what I already knew... I was settling on photographers that I wasn't happy with because I was tired of looking. Then I stumbled upon Rebecca and was immediatly in love with her work. If you take a few minutes to take a look at her blog, you can see that she truly is an artist and has a real passion for her work.
From the moment I met up with Rebecca on a snowy evening in a coffee shop in Rhode Island, I knew I was going to be happy with her. After talking to her for only a few minutes, I felt as though I had known her for years, and she truly understood me and what I was looking for in a photographer. She expressed a genuine interest in every aspect of our wedding, and I knew I would have a great time working with her and Nick.
In the midst of wedding planning, my husband and I were also moving to the mid-west. I was worried about having to do the remainder of the wedding planning from 1,000 miles away. Rebecca was amazing and accomodating, she was able to meet up with me when I was back on the east coast for brief whirlwind wedding planning sessions. We drove around and checked out where we would be getting ready, the Church, locations for photos, and reception. She has such a creative eye and was able to see things that I would have never noticed. Some of the best shots of the day resulted from locations she had picked out while driving around with me.
On the day of the wedding, they arrived promptly and were extremely professional. She was always right there when I needed her, but was never in the way, and was able to capture moments that I will be able to remember for a lifetime. Even my dad, who was extremely worried about the dreaded hours of family photos, was VERY impressed with how quick and painless Rebecca made the process.
Rebecca and Nick are an incredibly talented team of wedding photographers who I would recommend to anyone. Everyone who has seen our photos has commented on how beautiful our pictures turned out.
Thank you Rebecca and Nick for helping to make our day such a success! Hopefully we will be able to work with you guys again someday.

Rebecca is every bride's dream. Her photos are ethereal and emotional and beautiful. She is so easy-going and an absolute pleasure to work with. My husband and I did an engagement with her as well as our wedding and I have not a single complaint. I was just going through our photos this morning and I am still blown away at the beautiful job she and Nick did. I had been looking for a photographer with a specific style to his/her photos, and once I came upon Rebecca's blog I knew she was perfect. We pulled our wedding together pretty quickly, and I was so thankful she was available for our special day and so happy to be on board.

Rebecca Arthurs Photography is simply fantastic! Rebecca offers the most professional, stress-free, and joyful experience a bride could ever ask for on her wedding day. No matter what the moment holds on your big day, Rebecca will capture the beauty in all of it! She has so many innovative/creative ideas and you can really tell that she captures the personality of each individual couple in her photographs. Viewing our pictures for the first time after the wedding, basically brought my husband I to tears! Rebecca caught the moments and details in the most stunning and captivating ways. Best money spent on our entire wedding, hands down!

My husband and I could not be happier with having Rebecca and her husband Nick as photographers on our wedding day. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. They didn't just capture our expressions but the feeling of the entire day. Working with Rebecca beforehand was incredibly easy. She was super accessible via email (my preferred mode of communication) and flexible in adjusting her photography packages to meet our needs (which she already has such a good variety to begin with).
It was a rough week for us leading up to the wedding with hurricane Irene and all its disappointments, Rebecca was one of the only vendors who did not try and make drastic changes to our plans, charge us more $$$, or reveal to us a million different worries that week. She was 100% reliable and thankfully our photos are an easy reminder of what a beautiful day it was for us and we'll cherish them forever.

Pictures are so important to me, so the very first thing I did when planning my wedding was to research, hours upon hours, finding the very best photographer I could find to capture the most important day of my life. I knew exactly what I was looking for. So when I saw Rebecca's photography, it blew me away! I knew I had to have her. My husband and I are so fortunate to have had Rebecca and Nick there with us to photograph our entire wedding weekend (rehearsal dinner,day of and next day brunch). Rebecca is brilliant and exceeded all expectations. It is pure talent to have the eye she does to create such beautiful works of art. Honestly, I cannot tell you how many people have said, "where did you find your photographer? She is absolutely fabulous! I have never seen anything like that; It belongs in a magazine!" Rebecca is so easy going and the second we met her, my husband and I both knew we would get along perfectly. We felt so comfortable working with Rebecca and her huband, nick. By the end of our wedding weekend we felt as if we could consider them friends. Both her and her husband are the sweetest couple and are willing to do whatever it takes to capture the story behind each image. What I love is that my wedding photography feels unique to my day. She is not like a lot of photographers who just snap identical pictures from one wedding to the next. Your pictures will feel special to you. She is so willing to work with you if you have something special in mind. She is inventive and loves exploring new photo ideas and techniques. That is what makes her such a fabulous photographer. She thinks on the spot to create new photos specific to the scenario and couple she's shooting for. I cannot say enough wonderful things about both her and her husband. After looking at her photography, no convincing is necessary. You will know you have to have her too. Any time I can create an excuse to have her there in the near future, I most certainly will! If you have already booked your upcoming wedding with Rebecca, you are so lucky because you have booked the best photographer! If you have not yet booked with Rebecca, that should be your number one priority! Trust me!

A photographer is such a critical part of a wedding - not only do the photos last for a lifetime, but the photographer is also by your side (along with your new husband!) on one of the most important, stressful days of your life. In both of these essential roles, Rebecca is incredibly gifted. Her photos speak for themselves - they are beautiful, creative, and thoughtful. She is very willing to work with you to ensure she gets the shots that are most important to you, but she also has the ability to see and capture unplanned, special moments in a very touching way. In addition to her obvious talent as a photographer, Rebecca has the perfect personality - she is sweet, considerate, and friendly. She helped guide me through my wedding day calmly, giving me advice to help keep me organized and timely. She was unobtrusive, yet managed to be everywhere in time for the perfect photos!! She went out of her way to make sure that my wedding day was as stress-free and positive as possible. I truly cannot say enough good things about working with Rebecca. I would recommend her to absolutely everyone I know, and I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

I couldn't have imagined a better photographer for my wedding day. An absolute JOY to work with but even more important a truly amazing photographer. Everyone at our reception (since we had a private ceremony) was commenting on how wonderful she was even before seeing much of her work. After they saw the pictures, they were blown away. I love her artistic style which is why we wanted her as our photographer. Her pictures are inspiring and different. Each picture really makes me relive the moment and I love them all. Also, she was very prompt at getting the pics to us. I've had friends wait months and she only took a few weeks. Overall a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to anyone!! We loved her so much we hope to stay in contact. How many people can say that about their wedding photographer??

Rebecca was a pleasure to work with! She did an amazing job shooting our ‘day after’ wedding session. We were surprised how fun the session turned out to be and we are SO happy with the photos. Rebecca not only takes beautiful pictures, she works with you to create a lovely album story. She is creative and is able to use the surroundings to create wonderful imagery. She is very easy to work with and passionate about her work. A talented photographer that is able to capture candid moments to create beautiful photos.

Just WOW! very talented and unique. All the pictures she has taken of us have its own story to tell. LOVE THEM TO THE MAX.
She made us very comfortable in front of the camera and We were excited to be her model :) Her personality shows that she care about us and she wants the BEST of everything for us. Now that's AWESOME service.
Unique, Talented and Genuine Relationship - I'm giving her 100 stars. No doubt about her.

Where do I begin? Becca and Nick are unbelievable photography couple. I have never worked with 2 people who are so passionate about their work and would do anything to make your day perfect! My pictures are amazing and was speechless the first time I saw them! They are a piece of timeless art and will be displayed in our home for the rest of our lives! Not only do they take great pictures, they are an extraordinary couple! They both make you feel as if you are among friends just taking pictures! I would highly recommend Becca and Nick for any of your photography needs!!

Rebecca and Nicholas are quite the dynamic duo! We were so elated to have them both shoot our Wedding Day. The pictures are nothing less than perfect! They have a natural eye for a truly artistic picture and can really bring the love story out in each photo. We loved getting to know Rebecca through our engagement session (in which the pictures were incredible) and kept in contact with her all the way up to the wedding. Rebecca is very professional yet somehow makes you feel like you are working with a good friend! Both she and Nicholas couldn't have been better for the big day. We are so excited to work with them again for our next big life adventure! I highly recommend both of these wonderful talented photographers. Thanks again to both of you!
