After receiving a recommendation from a friend of mine, my husband and I decided to look up Alvarado Photography and their work. We were so impressed that after just five minutes of looking them up online, we were emailing AP to schedule our maternity pictures. We emailed Jess back and forth for a while setting up which time, date, and location would be the best for us. Her opinions helped out so much in our choice. We chose the North Shore location, and can assure you that we were not let down! We drove up to the North Shore and by the time we got there, the weather had turned too sour to shoot that day. Jess was so understanding and sweet, and we rescheduled a new shoot within the next couple days via email. During the shoot, a week or so later, we felt so comfortable and never had to fake a smile! Jess was easy and funny to work with and worked so well interacting with my husband and me. We felt very relaxed and at ease the whole time; you can definitely tell from the pictures! She let me rest and take a break in the middle of the shoot (I was 38 weeks pregnant), and was very caring of our safety around the rocks and ocean. The pictures turned out absolutely incredible, and we got them in a very timely manner. The photos were so well done, we couldn't help but love them all! For the price, professionalism, and care, we absolutely recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone looking for amazing pictures!

We were in Hawaii on a family vacation in June to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary, and we wanted to find a photographer who could take photos to celebrate the occasion. We found Alvarado Photograhy online and we are so happy we chose them for our photos! From the very beginning, Jess was quick in responding to questions via email and phone, and she was so friendly that she put our kids and us at ease on the day of the photoshoot. She suggested a hidden cove at Ko'olina that was just breathtaking, and she knew lots of different poses that felt really natural and captured our personalities and the beautiful scenery perfectly. Every photo came out stunningly beautiful!! We would definitely recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone visiting Hawaii, you will not be disappointed! We only wish she was here in California so we could book Alvarado Photography for all of our special occasions! Her work is absolutely beautiful!!

My wife and I visited Oahu for the very first time to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and we wanted better photos than just from a camera phone. I goggled photographers in Oahu and as I came across Alvarado Photography website and I was in total awe of the photos I saw there. So I e-mailed Alvarado Photography to see if they were available on a specific date and time and they were. From the very first e-mail I received the utmost professionalism, every email I sent was responded to quickly and I was provided easy driving directions to the location of our photo shoot. The photos came out simply amazing, I could not be more thrilled about how the photos came out. My wife and I are extremely happy that we choose Alvarado Photography.

Choosing Jess from Alvarado Photography was just the beginning to a fun, exceptional experience. My husband, two daughters, and I visited Oahu in March for a family vacation and decided to have a photo shoot for our Christmas photo. I decided to go with Alvarado Photography after researching online for professional photographers at an affordable price. The initial email correspondence was prompt and professional. Jess even recommended a few photo shoot locations. Our 1 hr. photo shoot took place at 8AM at Magic Island Beach. Jess made my family and I feel so comfortable during thephoto shoot. Magic Island Beach offered two different backgrounds, diamond head and the beach. She incorporated a variety of shots from family photos, photos with my husband and I, photos of my daughters, jumping photos, walking along the beach, and solo photos. Jess made us laugh during the entire shoot, making the hour fly by so fast because we were having so much fun, even at 8AM! During the shoot, Jess accommodated for outfit changes and we did not feel rushed at all. As the shoot came to an end, Jess informed us that in two weeks the photos would be up online for us to see. Sure enough, our photos were up online in two weeks. The photos were magnificent! My family and I couldn't decide which photo to use for our Christmas photo because Jess captured so many great moments! As we looked at the photos online, we couldn't help but remember what a great experience we had with Jess. Jess is a genuine professional and it is clear that her passion is photography. Thank you, Jess!

My girlfriend and I visited Oahu recently (March 2013). Since she had birthday a few days before we traveled there, I needed to get a birthday present. I decided to surprise her with a couple photo shooting from Alvarado Photography at the Ko Olina lagoon. The photo shooting turned out to be the best present ever. We both love the photos and had a lot of fun during our shooting. From start to finish, Jess responded to all my e-mails really quickly and made it very easy for me to get all formalities, which are related to the shooting, done. Since the weather during this period of time is changeable on Oahu, it was very important to me that we had the possibility to reschedule the shooting during our stay. Jess stayed really flexible and called us two hours before our shooting to check if the weather was good. The shooting itself was fantastic! Everyone who has ever done a couple shooting before will know what it means to find the right pose, in order not to look like puppets on the pictures. Jess was really creative and professional in this context. She took us to different spots, helped us to find the right poses and took great authentic pictures! The overall atmosphere was so relaxed and we felt really comfortable during our shooting. Retrospective, I would love to do it again and it was definitely worth the money. I can highly recommend Alvarado photography! Thanks for the great pictures!

We recently used the Alvarado's for the second time, and I just can't say enough great things about them. We had the first shoot done when we spent a week on Oahu last year. This second time, we were fortunate enough to have spent 6 months on the Island for work at the University. We loved the work Jess and John did the first time, when our son was 1.5 years old, and we wanted to get our photos again to commemorate our stay when he was almost 2.5. We scheduled a shoot just before Christmas, and although they were very busy with Christmas card portraits, the found a spot on the schedule for us. Unfortunately, that morning, our son came down with a terrible stomach bug, and we had to cancel as Jess and John were in the car driving to the shoot. They were very understanding, and we rescheduled for a few weeks later, after everything slowed down.
We decided to do the shoot at the same place we did the first one (Ala Moana beach), which is a perfect spot where you can get shots with Diamond Head and Waikiki in the background one direction, and the open ocean in the other direction. Jess and John were fabulous. They were cheerful and ready to shoot when we arrived, remembering details about us and our lives from our hour together over a year ago. They were great with our son (again), getting him to smile, play, and have a great time even though he started out being a bit shy. They got great candid shots, great posed shots, and I even liked some of the more corny poses they had us do. At the end, as they had packed up the equipment, a rainbow appeared over the water, and John grabbed his camera again to get a shot of us walking towards it. A beautiful conclusion to another wonderful session with the Alvarados.

Well be back on Oahu again next January, this time with the newest addition to our family--a baby girl due in March. You can be certain well be giving Jess and John a call as soon as we land to schedule another family shoot!

Jess at Alvarado Photography was amazing to work with! This was our first visit to Hawaii and we were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We couldn't have picked a better photographer to help us remember our wonderful vacation! Jess was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. I liked that she really took her time with us and asked if there were any specific shots we wanted. The pictures came out Amazing & I would highly recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone wanting photos taken in Oahu.

WE LOVE ALVARADO PHOTOGRAPHY! They made us feel so comfortable. They felt like they were part of our family. They knew the exact poses to place us in that would result in the perfect photos.

I will admit, I found them on the internet and at first I was a little worried because I only contacted them by e-mail and sent them a deposit. Through the process I found them to have the highest integrity and attention to the details that made me confident that I made the correct decision. They are thorough communicators and I knew they would be there on my wedding day.

The end result is that they were very punctual, professional, caring, organized and artistic. I refer all my friends and family to them and I have no reservations in recommending Alvarado Photography for professional photographs. We plan to use them for family photos and anniversary photos in the future.

Thanks John and Jess! You are the best!

I highly recommend Alvarado photography to anyone who wants to create beautiful memories for themselves, with family or friends and for any occasion! I have worked with Alvarado photography for 3 photoshoots now (first: solo for my 21st birthday second: with my best friend at the beach and third: with my family for christmas cards) and I have been extremely pleased with our photos and the photo shoots every time! Jess and John are very professional, polite and they always know exactly what poses, looks and directions to give to get the pictures to turn out amazing!! Even on an overcast day at the beach with my 8 month old son and dog running around and lots of "background distraction"...we were still able to have a successful photoshoot within an hour's time. They are truly beautiful photographers and you can really tell that they are passionate about their work and they care about the people they work with. I will definitely be working with Alvarado Photography for more photo shoots again in the future.

When my husband and I decided on a destination wedding we were stressing ourselves out with all the details and who was the best vendor... We booked Jess and John based only what we had seen of them online and boy am I glad we did. They were very professional and showed so much attention to detail. They were always available when we had questions, before, during and after the wedding. I would recommend them to all of my family and friends, the final product was amazing!

We were looking for someone to take family pictures for us. A couple of coworkers suggested that we call John and Jess since they had done pictures for their family. Jess was very friendly, responsive, and organized and we were able to quickly coordinate a time. When we met with John and Jess we knew immediately that we had made the right choice. They were very patient and friendly and were able to put our two little children at ease. They loved the little animals that Jess had brought. Throughout the photo shoot our kids were happy and engaged. The end result was great!!! John is a very talented photographer, the pictures looked very natural. The only problem we had was deciding which pictures to choose. We will definitely be calling them the next time we are looking for family pictures.

My husband and I decided to get pictures taken while we were on our honeymoon in Hawaii during September of 2012. I looked at a few different Oahu photographers online and Alvarado Photography caught my eye. Not only was the photography done very VERY well, but I really liked the variety of the scenery in the portfolios. Every picture was beautiful and the backgrounds were so different! This told me that the photographer knew the island well and after seeing the package pricing (which is very affordable, especially looking at other photographers) we decided to contact Alvarado Photography for more information. I received a prompt response from Jess and after a few emails we decided to go with Alvarado Photography to do our pictures. She gave me great recommendations on which beaches to choose from and I really appreciated that since we had never been there before and had no clue. She also helped us out by giving us detailed directions to the beach that we would be shooting at. Payment of the deposit was easy because she sent me a paypal invoice.
Once we were in Hawaii, Jess left me a message the night before our appointment. Not only was she giving me a reminder, she also included how much time we should give ourselves to get there. We chose Ko Olina beach because there were so many different landscapes in the sample pictures we looked at (Jess included photo #'s from her portfolios to give us an idea of what the different beaches looked like). We met Jess in the parkling lot and she walked us down to the most secluded beach area I saw while we were in Hawaii. It was beautiful.. We took many pictures in several different settings and it was exactly what we wanted. Jess was very personable, made us feel comfortable during all of the posing and even my husband had fun!
We finally made it back home after an amazing honeymoon and I could hardly wait until I got the confirmation email for proofing. The website was easy to log into and manuever. I can't express to you how happy I was going through the proofing for the first time. The pictures turned out so well, she did such a terrific job helping us capture memories that will last with us the rest of our lives. I had a hard time narrowing the pictures down to the 40 available for the package we had chosen, they really were that good.
Overall, we had a wonderful experience with Alvarado Photography. From start to finish we received exceptional service which isn't easy to come by these days. I would definately recommend Alvarado Photography if you are considering (if you aren't, you should be!) having pictures made while you are visiting the Oahu.

The pictures turned out great & we had such a great time taking them :) Thank you so much Jess for all your hard work! I would highly recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone that is visiting Hawaii.

We are so grateful to have found Alvarado Photography. My husband and I have always wanted to take family portraits in Hawaii, and we were very blessed to have another opportunity to vacation in Oahu this August. We were very impressed with Jess's prompt replies via email and very professional coordination. She was very accommodating when we had to reschedule our photo shoot 2 days prior to our originally scheduled date. She was so patient with our kids, including our 17 month old boy who didn't seem to want to smile. She brought toys for the kids and even had a cute camera prop to draw attention to the camera. It took about two weeks to view our pictures, and they were definitely worth the wait. I was so pleased with how the images captured the natural beauty of Hawaii and also the best candid expressions from my kids. Overall, it was a great experience, and I will gladly spread the word to friends and family. Thanks Jess for giving us wonderful pictures and memories for years to come.

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, my husband and I decided to do a trash the dress photo session. I looked online for a photographer, and when I saw the butt shot (hands on each other??s butt, staring off into the horizon), I knew Jess was ??the one.? Her photos showed couples who were comfortable, relaxed, and having a great time. She helped us choose a gorgeous location on the North Shore, maintained good communication throughout the planning process, and was flexible as we suggested a few exciting photos (like the kissing in the sand, ??Pearl Harbor,? shot that caused our friend to literally fell over when she saw it). The price was very reasonable, and most importantly the photos are AMAZING. We couldn??t be happier. I whole-heartedly recommend Jess for your memorable outdoor photos.

Working with John and Jess was the highlight of our trip to Oahu. A vacation would not be complete without some amazing photos. It's hard to get just the right shot on your own, ask people to take a picture of you, etc. so there's one easy solution to that. Hire Alvarado Photography to capture your memories. Working with Jess and John was great, from our first e-mail to our location shoot, to previewing our photos, everything was handled professionally. The package is a great value too. We've got memories that will last for years and thank John and Jess for being a part of them. Mahalo!

When my husband and I booked our 25th Anniversary trip to Oahu, Hawaii, I thought it would be great to book a professional photo shoot at sunset. Reluctant to pick just anyone, I completed extensive online research. There was only one photography company that stood out as being proficiently responsive, adeptly creative and very easy to book, and that was Alvarado Photography. They presented such beautiful options and thorough examples of locations for our sunset pictures. Jess was very friendly and precise with every detail of our session - and we had an absolute blast! Without hesitation, I enthusiastically recommend Alvarado Photography for any special occasion, or simply to chronicle your visit to Hawaii, we are extremely delighted with our pictures!

When my husband and I booked our 25th Anniversary trip to Oahu, Hawaii, I thought it would be great to book a professional photo shoot at sunset. Reluctant to pick just anyone, I completed extensive online research. There was only one photography company that stood out as being proficiently responsive, adeptly creative and very easy to book, and that was Alvarado Photography. They presented such beautiful options and thorough examples of locations for our sunset pictures. Jess was very friendly and precise with every detail of our session - and we had an absolute blast!

Alvarado Photography is awesome! Our good friends visited Hawaii in 2011 and had the most beautiful family pictures taken. When we came to Hawaii this year we made it a point to get a sitting with Alvarado Photography. We had the best experience with John and Jess, who also brought along their assistants who kept our young kids entertained. They were extremely professional, friendly and super easy to work with! Our pictures are so amazing and now we can see ourselves in Hawaii every day. If you live in Hawaii or just want to capture your vacation memories we would highly recommend John and Jess. Thank you for capturing our incredible family vacation! See you next year! Da Clemente Family!

We chose Alvarado Photography for our destination wedding on Oahu. From the start, they were great to work with. Throughout the entire planning process, they were very responsive and made the planning process easy. Their price is very reasonable compared to most photographers on Oahu. Jess was able to incorporate photos we liked and ideas and helped us get the exact shots we wanted. Even as obstacles arrived prior to the wedding, they made everything we wanted work. They even brought in an extra photographer the week before the wedding to help us get the receptions shots we wanted before we arrived at the venue. During the entire wedding and reception, they worked very hard to get every shot. We received our proofs of the wedding pictures in a timely manner and absolutely loved all the shots they took. We would use Alvarado Photography again in the future for more pictures next time we visit the Islands. Jess and John Rey were so nice and we were happy to have them be a part of our wedding day!!!!

If I could give them 10 stars I would!!! If beautiful photography of both your family and of the island is what you are looking to capture, you will absolutely not be disappointed with Alvarado photography. Highly recommended!!!!! Very professional without the pushy feel, our photo shoot felt "like a day at the beach" :) very comfortable & relaxed and the outcome was exactly what we were looking for. We will definitely be doing business with Alvarado photography when we visit again! :)

We highly recommend Alvarado Photography. Jess was wonderful! We were able to schedule a family session last minute before we moved off island. She returned emails promptly, monitored the weather in case we needed to change our location, and fit us in on a time constraint. The photos came out amazing; even our 8 month old was happy and smiling.

After much searching online for a good photographer, I stumbled upon Jess and John Rey s website, Alvarado Photography. I immediately fell in love with their perspective on their clients. They fully utilized the natural lighting and had fun/quirky poses in multiple locations. I quickly called to further discuss the details. The were extremely prompt in getting back to me via phone after I had left a message. The day of the session was absolutely awesome! Our chosen location was at Ko Olina at sunset. It was gorgeous! They were very professional, but fun at the same time. They were able to snap many candid moments, which happen to be some of my favorites in our set. Overall, we had a really great experience with Alvarado Photography. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer who can truly capture the moment without forcing it.

Jess and John Alvarado were very easy to work with. It was a challenge to find and plan a photoshoot for our family of 15 while on vacation to Oahu. But once I selected the Alvarado's they were extremely easy to work with. Jess was very patient and prompt answering several emails before our trip. Once on the island, they were very adaptable in moving locations at almost the last minute due to weather. They were very knowledgeable of Oahu locations and natural lighting for optimal results. Our photo shoot was fast, easy and fun and we couldn't have asked for a better location. We owe the results entirely to the Alvarado's expertise and creativity.

We recommend them highly for your family photography!!

Go with Alvarado Photography and you won't be disappointed! John and Jess did an excellent job for us on our engagement and wedding photo shoots. The pictures are beautiful and we are very pleased! Working with them was very pleasant. They were calm, confident, and decisive while also being very accommodating. Our wedding package included a mini engagement photo shoot, and we feel like they went above and beyond for that. On our wedding day, we had a very tight schedule, and although there were concerns that we might not have enough time to get all the photos we wanted, John and Jess did a great job of keeping things moving. We were able to get in nearly all of the important shots that we wanted, and they turned out great! The communication we received from them was great, too. We feel that we got a great value and had a pleasant experience with Alvarado and strongly recommend them.

We love our photos!! We had our family portraits taken by Jess and she definitely took her time with us and our 2 daughters. I had called and researched all the photographers that appeared on Google when searching for a photographer in Oahu and she was the best and most responsive. Jess was really good about listening and capturing moments that we were looking for. Alvarado's portfolio is amazing. I have already recommended them to friends and will continue to do so! Thanks Jess.

Alvarado Photography in a word is...INCREDIBLE! I researched different photographers throughout Oahu, and Alvarado had the best value for our money. They're communication was very prompt throughout the time leading up to, during and even after our session. John and Jess helped us pick a spot with a breath-taking view for our family shoot and were able to relate to our children (ages 8 and 5) very well....(did I mention they even brought toys to entertain the kids while my husband and I were getting our picture taken???) My expectations were pretty high for this "once in a lifetime" shoot, and AP's services FAR EXCEEDED them all!! They were prepared for everything! I would recommend them to EVERYONE and ANYONE looking for a photographer!!!

I hired Jess with little more than a week notice. From the start she was very helpful and quick to respond to my messages and even worked with me regarding the booking while the payment was processed. Jess was very professional, delightful and helpful. Despite the small nature of my wedding and short notice Jess went above an beyond to ensure my wife and I received the photos we wanted. I would definetly recommend her to others and the picutres came out amazing too.

We cannot speak highly enough about Alvarado Photography! They were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! My Family and I were heading to Hawaii for the first time from Australia and we wanted to capture our adventure. Organising a photographer from several thousand miles away was a bit daunting, but Alvarado Photography made it so EASY. From the very first email I sent Jess she was an absolute delight to work with. Emails were exchanged frequently and promptly with all questions answered and many suggestions given. When we finally met Jess and her husband John at stunning Lanikai beach, a little stressed and late due to getting lost, they made us feel at ease straight away. They were absolutely fantastic with both our girls (aged 3 and 4) playing with them while taking outstanding photos. We all had a wonderful time which is shown by all the smiles captured in our photos. Even though we started shooting late they continued to shoot for longer than the scheduled hour to ensure that we got all the photos we wanted. We are absolutely thrilled with the photos that were taken and can??t wait to show them off to our friends and family. We would highly recommend them to anyone. Alvarado Photography offers the best of everything ?? professional and friendly service; amazing high quality photos and the best prices around! Thank you so much Jess and John. We will be back and when we do we will give you a call!

John and Jess are awesome! The photos are beautiful; we will cherish them forever. The photo shoot was stress free, even with a 23 month old and a 6 month old. And they respond quickly to emails and are a delite to work with. We only waited 2 weeks to view our photos online, vice the 6 to 10 weeks we have had to wait with other photographers. As long as we are in Hawaii, these are the photgraphers that we will use, period!

What a great experience we had having Alvarado Photography take our family pictures! Jess was incredible and made the experience relaxed and fun. Our pictures turned out so great, that we had a hard time choosing between them. There wasn??t a bad photo in the bunch!

I would highly recommend Alvarado Photography! Jess did an amazing job on our photographs. It was our 10 year anniversary trip and we wanted to capture the memories. Jess has such an eye and knows how to pose you to get the best shot possible. She also has really great lighting equipment to get the best lighting possible. She was really accommodating and asked us if there were any specific shots we wanted to capture. She made sure to get all the shots we wanted and then some! It was a fun experience and we will definitely use her on our next trip to Oahu. You will be so glad after your session you chose them as your photographer.

Alvarado photography made my wedding day go easily and smoothly and their photos commemorated my special day perfectly! They were patient and organized with getting all of my "must have" photos taken care of. They gave great direction and so my pictures turned out great (which is hard to do since my husband and I are not photogenic at all). They are the best deal in Hawaii: you get two photographers and they cost less than any other photographer I could find on the island!

I'm originally from Hawaii and visit every year. This year I thought it would be fun to get our family photos taken so I hired Alvarado Photography after seeing all their beautiful pictures and amazing prices on their website! Our shoot had to be canceled due to bad weather but they found away to reschedule our shoot before we had to leave the islands! Jon and Jess are very professional and worked well with our kids. Our photos turned out so beautiful and I'm so glad I have these wonderful photos to remember our trip forever!!!

My husband and I are beyond ecstatic with our decision to choose Alvarado Photography! We have been together for almost six years and have been married for two and a half years and this is our first professional photography session. My husband is not keen on taking pictures, but once we were done he mentioned how he had 'fun'! For him to say that, that's huge!!! So far, our family has nothing but great, positive comments (i.e. pictures look amazing, y'all look like y'all had a blast, etc.). I would recommend anyone and everyone to go with Alvarado Photography to capture your 'timeless' moments on the lovely island of O'ahu.

I stumbled across their website and service while looking for things to do on Oahu Hawaii in tripadvisor. We had not thought about hiring a photographer for getting our family portraits until we had read some of the posts and reviews online.
We visited their online site and were impressed with the samples posted in their galleries. We also found their prices fair. We contacted Alvarado photography via email and received a prompt response that very same day. Jess was just such a dear to work with that scheduling a session was simple and seamless. She was very helpful, professional and polite. I was given a list of available dates, ideal times as well as possible and popular locations to take photos.
We had a lot of fun during the session. Based on their recommendation and samples that were shown, we chose Kolina beach. The view and sunset were absolutely stunning. We were laughing and surprisingly at ease considering my husband hates taking photos. The couple worked well hand in hand. Jess walked us through the poses while john took all the shots.
My husband and I would like thank Jess and John for their beautiful work. Our family and friends have said nothing but great things about our pictures. They truly made our stay in Hawaii memorable. We feel the best way to thank Jess and John is to share our experience.
