behind the camera

Hi. I'm Kanoa.

My name is Kanoa and I am a travel wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Orange County, CA. I'm a mama of 2 and have been with my best friend for almost 10 years. I established "Kanoa Photography" in 2020 but have considered myself a photographer since growing a love for it at a very young age. I love creating organic and artful imagery as well as the beautiful relationships that have come from making true connections with my clients. There's truly no better career in the world.
