a little about me...
Hi! I’m Raizah, pronounced (Rye-zuh), a California Girl living in Maui.
I’m an elopement & intimate wedding photographer who is passionate about documenting adventurous lovers!
My life path number is 5, and if you’re into numerology, you know that means I LOVE my freedom and make no compromises when it comes to it! My love for traveling began when I graduated College, moved into a tiny camper (13 ft) with my beloved and traveled across the western US & British Columbia.. we even made a cheesy YouTube travel channel! We volunteered (woofed) on 15+ organic farms & communities and fell in love with the land and how people were implementing environmental stewardship principles.
I graduated from Cal State Monterey Bay with a Bachelors in Environmental Studies in 2017 and grew deeply in love with the Big Sur Coast and hidden gems of Monterey. Rumsen land will always have a special place in my heart!
I have a calling to help children and fundraise money for an orphanage in Uganda & in the future, I will be stepping deeper into philanthropy work! My dream is to live in a small community with my own lil’ piece of land and to build and live in an Earthship (kudos if you know what that is!).
I honor and respect the earth and all of her creations with deep reverence and will always be an advocate for the voiceless!
Being out on the land with two lovers to adventure with on their special day- is my dream job & sometimes I have to pinch myself to remember that it’s real!! I’m so excited to get to know you and to steward an epic wedding day for you & your beloved! <3
more than just a photographer
I'll provide you with vendors & accommodation recommendations, trail references (if you're into hiking), permit info, tailored timelines & officiant assistance!
it's your wedding day!
You deserve more than a couple of quick portraits! It's the day you are blessed in sacred union, an accolade that you will re-live & remember forever & I truly believe that your whole wedding day deserves to be documented in its entirety, so that even when memories begin to fade... your intimate photos can be cherished for a lifetime & beyond.
Swimming with dolphins, picnic in the alpine zone, dancing under moonlight .. there are no limits & ALL of your most special moments & activities that you planned will be documented with full day coverage.
