Big Island Family Photographer | Jim Dierking | Family Photography in Kona, Hilo and Hawaii bio picture
  • Aloha!

    I'm a family and wedding photographer based on the Big Island of Hawaii, available from Kona to Hilo, Oahu, Maui and beyond!

    Having been born and raised here in the islands, I love to create photos that show a real sense of "Hawaii", with a genuine feeling of love, playfulness and aloha. I love rich colors, deep moments, and laid-back sunsets, and would love to document your adventure here in Hawaii!

    Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you -- I'd be happy to hear from you!
