Hawaii photographer Richard Wainscoat is an artist who specializes in digital outdoor photography. We provide a mix of photography styles but prefer photojournalism because it lends itself to capturing the special spontaneous moments of a wedding or family photo shoot.

Richard is an award-winning, internationally published photographer. His photo credits include Wired magazine, Outside magazine, Honolulu magazine and the New York Times. Richard’s photographs also grace the cover of several books. Richard has a doctorate in astronomy, and is also an expert astrophotographer. His professional training has provided him with broad technical expertise in digital imaging.

Whenever possible, he prefers to shoot outdoors, where the breathtaking Hawaii scenery provides an elegant and natural background for photographs. Richard likes to take advantage of the best lighting conditions that mother nature provides.

We use professional grade digital single-lens reflex cameras that yield image resolution similar to medium format film. We use a variety of professional quality lenses and we always bring backup equipment. We edit photographs for exposure and color when needed.

Richard lives in Kailua with his wife, who is also a professional photographer and serves as a second photographer at weddings. They have lived on Oahu for 20 years and would be happy to share their expertise of island locations with destination brides. Richard enjoys travel and is available for photographing destination weddings.

Richard will take great care to capture the special moments of your wedding in an artistic and sensitive manner. He makes an effort to get to know his clients on a personal level so that they feel comfortable around him. His goal is to capture your personality and spirit. Richard understands how important your wedding is and will do whatever he can to support you. If you hire Richard, you can be assured that you will receive the highest quality images and service at the most reasonable rates.
