Capturing Life's Little Moments.

James Edens, Professional O'ahu Wedding Creative
Wedding Photographer based in Honolulu, Hawaii
Thank you for stopping by, James has always felt so formal to me, so most people know me as Jimmy. I'm a local wedding photographer in the state of Hawai'i and have been working professionally over the last 6 years. Its been 14 years at this point since I moved to O'ahu and I'm still blown away by the fact that I get to take photos for a living, even more so for weddings. My job is my passion. And my passion is documenting weddings in a way that can be seen, felt, and never forgotten with the photos my couples receive. I prefer to capture people the way they truly are. Candid is one way of putting it, but I prefer the word genuine. It's all about capturing the moment as it happens in utmost sincerity. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me thru the buttons on the top or bottom of the page, otherwise you can email me at I look forward to hearing about your wedding day and the memories you're hoping to create. Cheers!

James was amazing to work with. I would book him again in a heartbeat and definitely recommend his services. He was easy to communicate with pre wedding, and was very professional at the wedding. He made us feel at ease when taking the photos. My husband hates smiling and posing for photos, and even he like the experience and how the photos of him came out. I appreciated all the little things he did to make the photos magnificent and our wedding day enjoyable.

Jimmy photographed our elopement and we couldn’t be happier with the experience he provided. It felt like we’d known him forever by the end of our shoot, which helped us not feel so awkward and resulted in photos we’ll cherish for the rest of our lives.

If I could give James more than 5 stars I would!!! Highly recommend! We used his services for a maternity photo shoot. Working with James was comfortable and easy throughout the process from initial conversations all the way through editing final photos. He was patient with my many questions, took into careful considerations my preferences, and was thoughtful in his approach to capturing our maternity shoot in just the right way-- and we LOVED the outcome! As a longtime Hawai'i resident, he had key knowledge of the best spots on the island for what we had in mind and knew how to work with the landscape and the lighting. My husband and I both agreed that we are very happy we went with James and that we had quite a bit of fun doing the shoot!

It was such a pleasure working with James! He was referred to us by our friends, who had previously worked with him for family portraits on their Hawaii trips. We were a group of 20+ people so you can imagine it being quite chaotic trying to wrangle a group that size for photos. But James was friendly, patient, and kept it light with the youngsters, all while maintaining his professionalism and capturing great moments. He also provided good insight and recommendations about places to go and see while staying on the island. We just received the edited photos from our shoot and we are happy he was able to capture these moments for us. Thanks Uncle Jimmy!

James did our wedding photography at Halona beach. His energy for our sunrise wedding was impressive! He had such attention to detail fixing my dress, my hair, and even our poses. The wind was not in our favor that morning, but he managed to work with it and was able to capture breath taking moments of our big day!
