Kilakila is based out of Tokyo, Japan and specializes in portrait photography. He primarily shoots with individuals, influencers, and brands looking to create beautiful and creative content. Kilakila focuses on creating timeless photographs with an emphasis on capturing not just photographs, but capturing YOU. Hailing from the tiny island of Maui, his style takes inspiration from the bright and natural beauty of the Hawaiian islands. 

Photography is an extremely intimate process, and I believe that a good photographer can make all the difference in how you FEEL about your portraits. I believe that portraiture should be all about capturing your unique style and personality, and it is my mission to make that happen for you!

I made the decision to pursue portrait photography full-time after my first year of college and havn't looked back since. It is my goal to provide you with the best images possible, and I love learning more about who you are as a person and capturing your unique personality through my lens. Every client is different, and you deserve a portrait expierience that is tailored to you! Throughout the process, from choosing a location and theme to posing on site, I will work with you to make sure your photos turn out just how you envisioned them!

I am so excited to work with you and can't wait to capture your next occasion through your portrait session!
