"timeless, poetic & inspired by nature"



Hawaii Wedding Photographer

Serving Worldwide destinations


An Oahu Wedding Photographer

who loves to travel &  go on adventures!


             My name is Mari:)  I am the photographer behind Tales of Light Photography. One of the reasons I specialize in wedding & elopement photography is because it is "pure emotion". It's a true pleasure for me to find the poetry in the human experience. My photographs are full of love, character and imperfect, much like people are. I do my best to work unobtrusively and flow with your day. This is necessary to capture authentic connections and subtle moments. It’s important for me to keep things simple, natural and real. Most likely you have been searching through a sea of photographers, but I see myself as more than a photographer. I'm a friend and I am here to share all my wedding planning tips and to make your vision come to life. Let's explore new and exciting landscapes together and create an artful heirloom you can proudly hang at your home. Please share your story with me so I can envision your "Tales of Light".
