Alvarado Photography went way beyond my expectations. My
family traveled to Hawaii in July 2012. The main reason for our trip was to
visit friends & family and to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. I
decided to hire a professional photographer to take outdoor family pictures at
Ko Olina because we were married there. After googling Hawaii Photographers I
contacted Alvarado Photography. I was really impressed with their gallery and
that they had experience taking pictures at Ko Olina. Jess replied promptly to
my initial e-mail. She was very professional and efficient throughout our
communications. Jess suggested we schedule the photos from 6-7pm, but I was
apprehensive. I was a concerned about the lighting at that time, but Jess
reassured me that it would be alright. She was RIGHT! I love the fact that we
were able to get daylight shots and sunset shots. They both turned out
beautiful! My husband was concerned that our children (4yrs and 7yrs) would not
cooperate. But Jess and her assistant came prepared to work with kids! They did
a fabulous job getting them to smile. Their smiles were happy and genuine. We
were very impress with how they kept our kids engaged. Her assistant even kept
them occupied while we took pictures of just my husband and me. We love ALL of
pictures that Jess presented for us to choose from. They made the process of
taking family pictures stress free, and we recommend them to any friends and
family. We will to call them again the next time we are in Hawaii!!! ALOHA and
MAHALO from Missouri!

A trip to Oahu 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!

get the pics taken and the whole way through the booking process, she was
brilliant!

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!!!!

Absolutely loved John and Jess! From our very first meeting
they were very easy to meet with and accommodated to our work schedules. They
were so professional and ALL of the pictures they took on the day of our
wedding came out beautiful. It is going to be so hard to pick our favorites!
They were both early on the day of our wedding. Communication was smooth and
effortless. We did not have to worry about one thing with the two of them. They
did a wonderful job picking the perfect places and poses for all of our
pictures. Their prices were very reasonable when compared to photographers on
island. I have already had friends interested in their services. We would
recommend them to anyone who asked.

We found Alvarado Photography through the internet and had
John and Jess take our son’s first birthday pictures. We liked their website
and their prices were not over the top. Their work was amazing from the start.
They took us to a spectacular location, a beautiful hidden beach we had not
seen. They were professional and came very well prepared. We felt very
comfortable with them and our son loved them. They were very sweet with him and
made him smile easily for the pictures. We loved their ideas for pictures and
the two of them work great together as a team. They obviously know what they
are doing and their equipment is superb. The pictures came out incredible; we
are in love with every single one of them. We are so happy we went with them
and will definitely have them do our future photo sessions in Oahu. We highly
recommend them; they are professional, punctual, energetic, creative, great
with kids, and amazing photographers.

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.

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.

Alvarado Photography provided us with a wonderful family

great job capturing the 2 sisters. Jess was extremely professional, but was
also great at putting us at ease. I am extremely happy with my finished product
and I highly recommend them for any type of photo session.

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!!!

We had a wonderful time with Jess as she caught the intimate
nature of our beautiful Hawaii wedding. She was excellent to work with and the
pictures turned out wonderfully. We couldn t have asked for a more perfect day.
Planning our wedding from Canada was a little nerve wracking especially doing
it in only 4 months. But Jess was fantastic from the first contact email
through alvarado s beautiful site to the arrival of our final proofs. She is a
talented professional and is highly recommended. Thank you for capturing our
love!

John and Jess took our Family Photos and they did an awesome
job. We have a 23 month old son and 6 month old daughter and they had a blast.
They took over 200 pictures and not one frown, no crying. They enjoyed playing
with them so much, my Husband I probably could have left an our kids woudln t have
noticed. I was excited top see these pictures during the photo session and I
was far from disappointed when they were available for proofing. The photos are
beautiful, it was hard to choose between them. We wil cherish these photos for
years to come and fully intend to use them again the future!

It is difficult to find a photographer from a distance, but
Jess was such a great communicator. She was quick to respond to emails and she
made me very comfortable during the booking process. Then when we got to Hawaii
and met her she was so nice! She had such an amazing eye for posing us to get
the best picture possible. She made my husband and I feel very comfortable
during the session. She even went longer than the time we paid for to make sure
she got all the specific shots we requested. She went above and beyond and the
pictures turned out amazing. We will treasure these photos for many years to
come!

different photographers before I chose Jess and John. I was blown away by their
talent that shows in the photos they take and ours did not fail to satisfy.
They are the perfect team, its like they communicate with each other
effortlessly. Visit Oahu and have your pictures done with them. You won t
regret it and have a precious memory forever.

If you need a photographer, choose Alvarado Photography! We

ourselves. They know how to give direction but also let you do your own thing.

Alvarado Photography did an amazing job on my wedding day.
They were very affordable (the cheapest I found in Hawaii) and had great
results. They even gave us some extra time during my wedding at no additional
cost. They gave great direction, which was very important for my husband and I
since we are not the most photogenic/body conscious people in the world. We
were pleasantly surprised on how good we looked in our pictures, and I have to
give all the credit to Alvarado!

Amazing Experience with AP Alvarado Photography shoot our
wedding photos in Oahu. We had two different locations (Waimanalo Beach Park
and Makapu’u Beach)and we think it was great idea from Jess to get two
locations. Jess was always there, if I had any questions and it was really easy
to do everything over the phone. Jess and her friend made the photo shoot
really fun and easy on us. They were joking around and made us feel comfortable
and special, but professional in every way. Our two hours session was great
experience, we really enjoyed that and had a lots of fun. Our family and
friends loves our photos and we are very happy we choosed AF. We definitely
call you again on our next visit to Oahu. We highly recommend Alvarado
Photography to everyone, who is looking to get awesome photos and memories.
Thank you for everything. R&P

I can't say enough great things about Alvarado Photography!!
Our family wanted to commemorate our first trip to Hawaii with professional
photos and after searching online we decided to book with Alvarado as their
portfolio pictures were gorgeous and the prices were very affordable. I mainly
dealt with Jess by email contact and she was extremely professional and
helpful. She was always prompt in her responses and she really gave us great
ideas as to where on the island we should choose for our shoot. On the day of
the shoot we met at Ko Olina and had a great time with both John and Jess
making us feel totally comfortable. Our pictures turned out great and we will
definitely have a difficult time picking out our favorites. I would highly
recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone and would definitely use them again in
the future without hesitation!!

My wife and I have traveled to Hawaii several times for both
work and pleasure. But this last time was particularly special because we took
our 1.5 year old baby boy with us for his first trip to paradise. We thought
that it would be perfect to have his 1.5 year portraits taken on the island,
rather than some stuffy studio back home. But, of course, we procrastinated,
and didn’t start looking into it until near the last minute. After a bit of
internet searching, we came across Alvarado. The price looked right, and the
photos on their website looked perfect. After an email and a phone
conversation, we were sold. They were very accommodating, and choose a perfect
location on a beach in Honolulu (though they offered other more distant
locations). The location was great, because you could get two very different
backgrounds (Waikiki and Diamond head on one side, sandy beach and ocean view
on the other). We met Jess at the car, and walked down to the beach to meet her
husband John, who does most of the shooting, while Jess does the logistics.
They were both wonderful people, friendly, accommodating, and quite skilled at
what they do. Although we were primarily interested in portraits of the baby,
they threw in many great family and couple photos as well, and the one hour
photo session included the option for us to change clothes (which we did). They
were really professional the whole time, and even brought toys and bubbles to
get the baby to smile. Finally, after our shoot, we were extremely pleased with
the photos that we were able to view and choose online once we got home. They
did a magical job, and we couldn’t have been happier. We’d use Alvarado again
in a second. They were great!

My fiance and I recently became engaged and decided to get
our pictures taken professionally. After looking for a couple weeks we decided
to go with Alvarado Photography. Thank God we did! We were immediately
contacted by Jess. She was very friendly and helped us choose a photo package
and location. We met them at Ko Olina beach on a Sunday. It was pretty busy
near the beach area because of a wedding, but Jess and her husband had no
problem setting us up for some great poses. We will be heading back to the
mainland soon and were happy to capture some good times here on Oahu. I would
definitely recommend them to everyone. Great quality photos, fair price,
friendly/professional service, what more can I say?

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.

My partner and I were looking for a photographer that had
beautiful work that was romantic, beautiful and timeless. Some websites we saw
that were affordable were poor quality and downright cheesy! That’s why I was
so excited to find Alvarado Photography! We were having a very small ceremony
but wanted beautiful pictures and Alvarado Photography offered hourly packages
that met our needs perfectly. Since we were travelling to Oahu for our ceremony
we only met them the day of our ceremony but Jess was friendly and
professional. He and his lovely wife put us at ease and worked seamlessly
together. Our officiator ended up being late but Jess adapted easily to changes
in plans and things were calm and easy for our special day. When we got to see
our proofs for the first time, we couldn’t believe how beautiful they were! We
couldn’t have been more pleased and now have the most beautiful keepsakes from
our special day 

Stop searching. If you've found Alvarado Photography, you

with the best engagement and wedding photos I've seen. We were nervous during
our first session but, they got us to relax immediately. Even my husband, who
never smiles, has some great shots with a big grin on his face. I can't thank
them enough for capturing some of our best memories.

There aren't words to describe how wonderful Jess and
Johnrey Alvarado are. They truly love what they do and it shows in their work.
We searched high and low looking for a wedding photographer and when we found
Alvarado there was no question. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully.
They are professional, fun, amazing photographers and wonderful people. They
went above and beyond to make sure they understood what we wanted in terms of
our photos and even called me the day before to check up on me and make sure I
was okay before the big day. The day of our wedding was so amazing and Alvarado
really made us feel at ease. They also moved so quickly and kept us right on
schedule. When we got our wedding photos back I cried. They were more beautiful
than I ever expected. Trust me, I did my research and when it comes to
photography, Alvarado is the BEST on the island for amazing photos and
wonderful people :) We look forward to working with them in the future!!!

We used Alvarado Photography for our family photos and are
so pleased with our photographs. I found Alvarado Photography online, and was
quickly impressed with their portfolio, professionalism, and their quick
response to my inquiry. Prior to our photo shoot, I was a little apprehensive
because our toddler can be a bit camera shy, and I wasn’t sure what kind of
photos we would end up with. Our son was immediately comfortable with Jess and
John and they were able to capture several awesome shots. They took their time
when photographing our family and let our son take breaks when he needed it
without putting pressure on us to stay on schedule. Our experience was
enjoyable and we love our pictures! We definitely recommend Alvarado
Photography and look forward to using them for our future photo needs!

When looking for a photographer I had very high
expectations. I'm very big in to photography and having photographers who were
very good at just capturing the moment was a big deal to me. I came across the
Alvarado's web site while googling photographers in my area, I instantly fell
in love with their portfolio. They were the first I looked at so I explored
onto other photographers web sites to see what else was out there, but came
back to theirs because really no one else even came class to comparing to their
talent. I was in contact with Jess the whole time and she was always prompt at
getting back to me, and so kind. My wedding day came and they were there to
capture every moment from me getting ready all the way to the end of the
reception, they captured the moments so well! The editing of the photos and the
angles they used where outstanding! Their creativity and detail was amazing!
they exceeded my expectations, and I would recommend them to everyone.

Alvarado Photography were truly a pleasure to deal with . We
were a little apprehensive planning our wedding in Hawaii, from Canada but when
we found AP online and got to know John and Jess over email and phone we were
certain we made the right choice for our wedding photographer. Jess and John
were so genuine and helpful and we felt very much at ease with them. John and
Jess were also very accomodating, as we changed the time of our picture
session. As for the pictures- they are fantastic. Excellent quality and very
inventive using the beautiful settings in Hawaii at our wedding site. We would
highly recommend Alvarado Photography, they are true professional's and very
reasonably priced. Jeff & Peggy

Alvarado Photography is amazing! John and Jess are great
people and excellent photographers! It was the first time my wife and I got our
photos taken professionally and all of the pictures turned out amazing. The
experience was very fun, and not once did we feel uncomfortable. All of their
work is phenomenal. It was an awesome experience and I definitely recommend AP
to anyone and everyone on Oahu!

Me and my husband came to Oahu, Hawaii to get married from
England. We had searched the internet for local wedding photographers and came
across the Alvarado website. Their galleries really impressed us so we made
contact with the company. There is an eleven hour time difference but we were
able to communicate with ease. We arranged the time and date for the session
and waited. We got back in touch shortly before our journey and again upon our
arrival. We met John and Jess on the day of our wedding and they instantly put
us at ease. They make a fantastic team, they were full of ideas and were
totally in control, they are true professionals. As promised our wedding photos
were 5/5 STARS Posted in Yahoo! Local on 
their website one month after the date of our wedding. We've decided to
have them all as we can't choose! The quality of the photography is excellent.
We have pictures which capture exactly what we wanted - our intimate wedding in
an idyllic setting. Thank you so much John and Jess for capturing our wedding
so beautifully x

Alvorado Photography is THE BEST on the Island. Both my
fiancee and I were initially hesitant to get engagement photos done, because
we're pretty shy and reserved, but all of those worries melted away when we met
Jess and John Rey. They were willing to help us pose and kept us laughing the
entire time. After viewing the photos, I have family members wanting to book
with them as well. If you're looking for an inexpensive, romantic, and timeless
engagement photoshoot - here's your place.

More than satisfied! I flew my girlfriend to Hawaii to visit
me. While she was here I proposed to her, we thought it'd be amazing if we did
our engagement photos here. Jenn found Alvarado Photography LLC online, and sent
them a message. We heard back from Jess within 24 hours, and were able to
schedule an appointment within a few days before Jenn went home. John and Jess
were awesome to work with, and the pictures they took were phenomenal, and the
price was perfect. Thank you for helping to make our engagement unforgettable!

More than you could expect! My now fiance and I went to Oahu
to enjoy some time away from home. He proposed to me while we were on our trip
and we decided to get our engagement photos done while we were there, as there
was no way we would ever get a comparable beach scenery here in British
Columbia. Having booked on very short notice, Alvarado Photography was AMAZING.
I emailed Jess to inquire about how much notice they would need to book an
engagement photo session. She emailed me within 24 hours and provided me with
dates and times to choose from. I asked her many questions in numerous emails
as I've never been to Hawaii before and not knowing much in Hawaii I was a
little skeptical. I then Google Alvarado Photography and also found them on
Facebook. I read through all the reviews and felt 100% comfortable to go ahead
and book the session and make a 50% deposit online. I had no doubt in my mind
that our photos would turn out great, as I fell in love with their work
instantly. The pricing was amazingly so reasonable that it did not make any
sense not to book a session. Jess and John were always so accommodating
changing our session from a morning shoot to sunset; I had a lot of questions
about what locations we should shoot at, what we should wear... They were
really helpful and it helped that they always responded so quickly. They made
it super easy to book and make payments online. When we got to the photo shoot
at Bellows Beach it was a bit grey out and I was worried that the pictures
would turn out dim and the ocean water would not turn out as blue as I would
have liked. Also it was super winding and did not know what to expect as I felt
like my hair was always wrapped around my face and I'd probably look funny. I
was so wrong they must have done a great job editing everything because none of
my worries showed in any of the photos. The photos were ready to view on time
within 2 weeks and they turned out absolutely breath taking. It had turned out
more than I could ever expect. I am beyond happy and they have captured one of
the most memorable days of our lives. I could not express how extremely satisfy
I am with their quick and professional service. I wish they didn't live so far
away as I wish I could have them shoot my wedding and every other important
event in life! Thank you so much John and Jess, we could not thank you enough
for the amazing job you did! I highly recommend Alvarado Photography to
everyone! Especially people traveling to Oahu from outside USA or not familiar
or have not traveled to Hawaii. You don't have to worry about whether you are
booking with someone legit or not and spend your time enjoying your trip rather
than worrying about getting scammed! They are super professional and will
answer any and every questions or concerns you have!

Amazing pictures! My family and I wanted to get family
pictures taken, and we are amazed at how great the pictures turned out. John
and Jess did a great job with making us feel comfortable and at ease during the
session. They did a great job at keeping the attention of our 4 year old son.
My husband and I discussed on our way home, how easy the process was and were
hopeful to have a few good pictures. We now have our pictures and love every
single one, they all turned out great and look wonderful. You won't be
disappointed with AP: easy to communicate with, easy going photo session, and
beautiful pictures at a very reasonable price. I will recommend AP to all our
friends on Oahu and will use them again in the future!

there are always a hand full that you don't like or care for. But i must say
that the pictures we received for Alvarado Photography were all amazing in
their own way. It was a pleasure working with them, they worked with us with

Having your pictures taken by Alvardo Photography is a must!
I found Alvardo Photography online, while I was searching many Oahu
photographers to take me and my husband one year anniversary. Our 30 min
session went so well!. I loved working with John and Jess, super nice couple,
with wonderful ideas. Having never gotten engagement photos taken, I was so
pleased with how our one year photos turned out. Just go to the website and you
will fall in love. And the great thing was that it only took TWO weeks to get
our photos ready for online proofing. Awesome experience!

Many thanks to John and Jess for helping to make our August
2011 wedding so memorable for us! The Alvarado Photography website caught my
eye when I was searching for photographers in the Honolulu area. The locations,
attention to detail and re-touches were very impressive. My first point of
contact was Jess. She was SO helpful and so patient with all my questions and
concerns. Living in Arizona, we had no idea where to hold our wedding in
Hawaii. After listening to how I pictured my wedding site to be, Jess suggested
the Secret Beach. I had a good feeling about her so I felt comfortable taking
her recommendation. We’re so glad we did because the site was absolutely
amazing! John was a true professional. With so many visitors walking about on
the beach, shooting that day was a challenge. John worked around them and our
pictures came out so beautifully. We are very impressed and so very thankful!
We highly recommend John and Jess to anyone looking for professional
photography with amazing attention to detail!

Several months later, my boyfriend proposed. After a few months, my fiancé and I began to talk about engagement pictures. Immediately, I showed him my friend’s pictures on Facebook and we then Googled Alvarado Photography. We just KNEW they were the photographers we wanted! The day of the photo shoot was so much fun. They were professional yet easy going which helped keep us relaxed during the shoot. The results of the photo shoot were excellent. Alvarado Photography captured us in a way that we will cherish for years to come. Thank You Alvarado Photography- Katie G. & John K.

Shannon Perez 5/5 STARS AP did an amazing job with our wedding pictures. The weather that day was gloomy, wet and windy. However, there is no way you would have ever known through our pictures. Jess and John were so easy and fun to work with. We were able to book everything via email with short notice for our weekday shoot. My favorite part about the shoot was getting wet! They had so many ideas for crazy/fun poses. I will definately use AP again whether we make a trip to Hawaii again or if they come out to San Diego! I can't brag enough about them, I wish they lived closer!

Jess & I exchanged many emails and she was so helpful and professional throughout the entire process. Both John and Jess were so friendly and made us feel very comfortable during the shoot.

Courtney Kendrick  5/5 STARS  My husband and I booked a sunset photosession with Alvarado Photography for our family. We hadn't had any family photos done yet, so this was a must before my husband deploys. Jess and JohnRey were more then willing to make sure this was a wonderful experience for all of us, we're new to the island so I took a leap of faith and put the location strictly in their hands, and did not view before hand.  We got to the location- and it was AMAZING. I couldnt have picked a better one if someone asked me to! After the shoot on the way home, my husband and I chatted about the wonderful experience we'd had and hoped that we'd at least have taken one decient photo. Now that they are done I cant decide which ones to pick! Theyve all turned out so wonderfully! I have already begun recommending them to friends! We can't wait for my husband to return from Afghanistan and get our next set of photos done!!! :-) :-)

Sean Testa "4/5 STARS"  We hired the Alvarados for a photo shoot while on vacation this past July - it was a big group (16 people from 4 different families and that included 4 kids under 5 years old). It takes some organization and coordination to wrangle a group that large. Jess and John were great. John took photos while Jess helped to arrange and compose all of the different people into particular shots. I was pleased at the variety of shots they managed to get - it wasn't just the same pose with different people in it when they took photos of the individual families. As the parent of a toddler, I also appreciated that they were prepared with a few 'tricks' to evoke a smile when the little ones got cranky. When my son reached his limit and would no longer cooperate, John astutely suggested a quick walk on the beach, which turned out to be some of my favorite photos. I was impressed how quickly they were able to change direction and roll with whatever situation arose. They were also very generous with their time - they stayed over the allotted time to get the last of the pictures completed and we really appreciated that. It was a great experience all around. Our pictures look great - everyone in our family is pleased with the results and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend John and Jess.

During the shoot they made us feel comfortable and they were open and accommodating to our ideas. Our pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL! It’s amazing how they took a shoot that took place in a single location and made the pictures look like we went to 5 different locations!

Julius Quiaot 5/5 STARS On our visit to Oahu, we decided to take professional family portraits. We found Alvarado Photography through a few Google searches, and after viewing their online portfolio and getting a sense of their photographic style, we pretty much knew we wanted them to take our portraits. Contacting Jess and John Rey to set up the photo session was easy - they were very prompt responding to my messages and answered all the questions we had. The photo session itself was great - Jess was great organizing us, getting us to try various poses, and getting my little one to smile and look at the camera. John Rey was there with the camera to capture every smile (and you parents out there know how difficult it can be to get a rambunctious toddler to focus). Previewing the proofs and selecting the final shots was easy too, and their website is well-organized and clean. I'd gladly recommend Alvarado Photography for capturing those special moments! Thanks Jess and John Rey!

We absolutely enjoyed working with them and highly recommend them! My husband and I just received our online proofing and we are so happy with the quality of their work more than I imagined it would be! It is going to be very difficult to narrow down the photos!

We were looking for fun, beautiful pictures that captured our wonderful time in Hawaii, and what we got was even more wonderful that we had hoped for! Jess and John Rey were so helpful and personable from the first time we spoke. They have taken the time to find locations that really capture the beauty of Hawaii, and even suggest the best time of day for each location. They had spots picked out all along the beach that made for beautiful backgrounds. Jess and John Rey not only allowed us to pick some of our own shots, but also had so many wonderful ideas! They were really great with our children too. They were very patient with them, and allowed a lot of time for them to play while taking great pictures. John had great ideas for photos of us as a couple, and Jess played with the kids nearby so we could relax and be ourselves. Those turned out to be the best pictures we have as a couple. It was the best experience we have had getting family portraits, and we have had many great ones!

We scheduled a short family photo session with Alvarado Photography hoping to capture some special moments outdoors with our 19 month old son.

As soon as you meet thehusband-wife photographer team, they make you and your family feel at ease. As we are expecting our next son soon, I would definitely use them again for family photos.

Jennifer Zamora Hilario 5/5 STARS My husband, almost-3 y.o. daughter, and I recently went on vacation to Hawaii and were looking for a family photographer to take photos of us on the beach. Boy are we so glad we found Jess and JohnRey of Alvarado Photography! They were so pleasant and easy to work with and made the experience fun for all of us especially for my daughter. She does not warm up easily to people she doesn't know, but she definitely did with Jess and JohnRey (definitely work well with children!). They have a very natural way of shooting photos and encourage a "just be yourself" approach to taking photos, which is definitely our style. Our photos turned out beautifully and are so happy with them! We were a little scared during the photo shoot because we encountered some stormy weather, but Jess and JohnRey did a wonderful job in these conditions. They are very much the consummate professionals!
With high regards,

Karla Pharathikoune 5/5 STARS  Bottom line up front: very affordable, easy to work with, and pictures turned out awesome.  We researched photographers on Oahu months before our vacation and chose Alvarado Photography over all others and have not regretted our decision at all. Jess and John was very responsive to all our questions which aided us tremendously in our vacation planning efforts. On the day of our photo session, they arrived on time and within a couple of minutes made us feel like we were family and not just another client. Throughout the session it was very apparent that they knew what they were doing; even got our four year-old to follow their directions which is a feat by itself. As promised, our pictures were provided to us on time for our review. Since we live in Missouri, this was done via web which made the selection process very convenient; their website was very easy to navigate. Given our experience with Jess and John, we will definitely be going with them again on our next vacation to Oahu and would recommend them to anyone.

Jesse Butterfield 5/5 STARS We were searching for awedding photographer who was affordable and easy to work with, and I'm really glad we found John and Jess at Alvarado Photography. They were excellent and really took control of the situation to get the best pictures. The pictures were so good it was extremely hard to pick out our favorites. We strongly suggest using them, you won't be disappointed.

Bonnie Singleton Johnson 5/5 STARS My family and I enjoyed working with Jess & JohnRey of Alvarado Photography. They were a great team that worked well with each other as well as with us. They were professional, but kept pace with the goofiness of our family. They were open to suggestions while still sticking to what they knew worked well. It felt like friends were taking the pictures instead of two photographers trying to get a job done. Not only were they themselves great but the pictures turned out so well that we had a real challenge picking only 60 for our final CD. If we are ever in Hawaii again I will definitely use Alvarado Photography again, I strongly suggest using them.
Sincerely,
Bonnie and Randy

Jennifer Crawford Whitehead 5/5 STARS We are so happy we went with Alvarado Photography for our family photos while vacationing in Hawaii last month.

They took beautiful photos that gave our family a lifetime of memories!!

Heather Sweetapple 5/5 STARS We were going on a family vacation to Hawaii with our toddler and a friend had suggested doing some family photos while there. I started looking into photographers in the area and when I found Alvarado Photography online I knew I found what I was looking for. They photos speak for themselves but along with that, John and Jess are great people to work with. From the moment I first contacted them to inquire about setting up a session they were nothing but professional and great to work with. We recieved our proofs two weeks after our session and were blown away. They really have a gift for what they do and you can tell they love their job!

Sabrina Nelson Tow 5/5 STARS I spent a lot of time online looking for photographers. Hawaii has a HUGE selection, but we wanted it to feel special, not just cookie cutter kind of photos. JohnRey and Jesse were very professional and friendly. They compliment each other very well. They were very patient and came prepared to work with an 18 month old. They are understand that an 18 month old won't always cooperate and they followed our son's lead. The results are very beautiful and classic photos. You really get a lot for the price! JohnRey and Jesse are wonderful! We will definitely be going back to them!

Theresa Hubiak Miller 5/5 STARS  Every year around my son's birthday, we take professional family pictures. Having just moved to Oahu in March from Florida, I really wanted to find a photographer that could both capture the personality of our son and our family, while also featuring the stunning scenery of our new hometown. We were so lucky to find that Jon and Jess could do both! Jon takes truly beautiful pictures, and Jess does a great job keeping the subject matter engaged (no easy task when they are three years old), and directing the pictures to ensure they would turn out the way we wanted. I am thrilled with how our pictures turned out. Jon has a true talent for capturing the beautiful locations, as well as some special family moments. I highly recommend Alvarado Photography to anyone living in Oahu, or even just visiting.

Lori Stinson Brown 5/5 STARS I also did lots of research before choosing Alvarado and am so pleased with my choice. Since we had not been to Oahu before I was unsure of the "best" beach for our family photo session. They were so patient and sent many suggestions along with photos they had taken at those locations. After all that work I ended up having John & Jess meet us at our bungalow which they were more than happy to do. John took tons of photos. All of them great! It made picking our favorites a very tough job. Thanks for helping us capture our time in Paradise.

Ashley Nalley 5/5 STARS I spent quite a bit of time researching before I decided to book a session with Alvarado. My boyfriend had just return from a year long deployment and I wanted to have some amazing pictures while we were spending our vacation in Hawaii. John Rey and Jess are such wonderful people and take amazing photographs. We were able to pick our location on Sandy Beach and have a mini session. Any time I had questions or concerns they would always respond in a timely manner. The pictures turned out better than I could have dreamed. They will be memories that last a life time.

Pami Hettinger 5/5 STARS My husband and I enjoyed our time with the Alvarado. They made us feel really comfortable in capturing our special moment. They were fun to work with and always had a smile on their faces. They even captured our special moment when we told them that we were pregnant and this would be our couple session/first pre-baby photo and they did such a great job. Thanks guys for making our special moment a memorable one to remember.

John Tessier 5/5 STARS  We did lots of research before deciding on Alvarado Photography. We scheduled a photo session with Alvarado Photography while on vacation in Hawaii last month to finally take our wedding pictures on a beautiful beach.
Both John and Jess were friendly, creative, and professional. They made us feel so comfortable and it showed in our beautiful photos. My husband and I felt like we got married all over again. Your photos are wonderful!
Thank you John and Jess for creating and capturing such beautiful memories.

We will use you again when we come back. We also suggest everyone else use you guys over the other photographers out there….

Thank you,
John and Jessie Tessier

Jennifer Shroads Helms 5/5 STARS   I was fortunate enough to have met the Alvarado's through some friends of mine. So I knew that I wanted to do a different kind of gift for Fathers' day and our 10yr anniversary, but I needed to keep it a secret since he is on a remote tour. He is serving a years duty in Greenland. However, he does get a mid-tour break and we will be able to give him a wonderful gift. I found the prices to be very reasonable. I already knew what wonderful work they did since I had seen there work through our mutual friends. They were able to get my 4 year old daughter to have fun, laugh and enjoy the shoot. I love the way they are able to capture true emotion through their photography. We are looking forward to another photoshoot with them in the near future. TRUE PROFESSIONALS! Thanks Alvarado family!5/5 STARS

Paris Anderson 5/5 STARS My extended family of seven used Alvarado Photography to have family photos taken on the beach. John and Jess were both extremely professional. When I asked a question prior to our shoot I was responded to in a timely manner. John and Jess had a variety of poses for us and also took our ideas into account; the end result was beautiful photos! They were very patient with our large group which included a 16 month old. We will definitely use Alvarado Photography again the next time we visit Oahu.

Kevin McIntyre 5/5 STARS When choosing a photographer it is tough to find a great product at a great value. Alvarado photography absolutely delivered in both areas WAY beyond expectation. They have a way of working with a client that makes the process fun while always delivering a product that is beyond expectation. They are both extremely talented artists and know how to get ANY photo you need. I would recommend them to anyone looking to capture memories that last forever. Mahalo, Alvarado Photography you gave my wife and I way more than we paid for!

Micole Ogletree 5/5 STARS  I booked Alvarado Photography to take photos of my husband, dog and I before he left for deployment. We also had good friends visiting the island, so we added an extra hour for them as their wedding present. We did some photos of just couples and some photos all together and they all turned out amazing! John and Jess were wonderful to work with; they are an excellent team. John takes the photographs, while Jess works with you on poses. She also handles the business end (emails, payments, etc.). They were both very professional. We were able to view our edited pictures 13 days after our shoot. It was hard to pick which ones because they were all so wonderful!! I would definitely recommend them to my friends, especially since they were so military friendly. If you want amazing photos and professionalism - go to Alvarado Photography!5/5 STARS

Uriah Lyford 5/5 STARS  THEY ARE TRUE PROFESSIONALS. John and Jess were GREAT! We had AP shoot our wedding. John wasted no time (the bride was running late) and took pictures we requested while we waited for her. They turned out amazing, they did great color effects on our pictures and they are all GREAT quality. He got all the shots we wanted plus others we didn't even know would mean so much to us. We are recommending them to all our friends and plan on having them take more pictures of us when we visit Hawaii!

5/5 STARS We have now used Alvarado Photography twice for our family pictures and I could not be happier! Our last session was also a vow renewal and they really helped to make our day a very special event! When we first moved to Hawaii I was doing research for a photographer and could not believe some of the prices, when I came across their wedstie and saw their amazing work I was literally speechless! I can't wait for our next set!!! Thank you guys again for helping to make our pictures so special!
