Let's Be Friends!

NY+Colorado Elopements and beyond

As an elopement photographer my priority is co-creating an epic elopement day experience with you so that you can celebrate your love in the most authentic way and be in the moment. 

My Mission

Hey, I'm Hawa!

I love rain and being near the water. It just gives me a sense of calmness and peace. Back in Kenya, I would sit alone in the room and watch the droplets hit the ground. I was mesmerized by the rhythm of the rain and its centric circles.

4 Fun Facts about Me

Fall is my absolute favorite season ever! I love watching Hocus Pocus every year and doing fall festivities. The East Coast has the best fall foliage in my opinion and then Colorado. 

I'm the middle child of 7 and my sisters are my absolute favorite humans. We like to watch reality TV together like Love Is Blind. I watch spooky and suspenseful shows like Supernatural when it's just me. I also love Game Of Thrones even if they like to kill off all of my favorite characters.

I am bilingual and naturally I love learning new languages and also listening to music in multiple languages. I mostly listen to Portuguese, Amharic, Hindi, and Spanish music. 




Elopement Locations Bucket List

"I will start off by saying that Hawa is an amazing photographer and person. Her photos are absolutely beautiful and they speak for themselves. She took portrait/couple photos for me and left me speechless. Hawa is so fun, attentive and made my boyfriend and I feel so comfortable and we had an amazing time. Hawa sent us our sneak peak pictures in no time and we were blown away. I would always recommend her even before she took my photos and I promise that will never change. Beyond thankful for these memories I get to hold onto forever. Thank you Hawa for all that you do"

"Hawa really went above and beyond for our photos! She does her research beforehand, even the location, to figure out the best angles and areas. She asked us questions to get a sense of what we liked and wanted and curated a set of poses based upon our answers. This was very nice especially if you're not sure how you want your photos to be. The photos also arrived quickly and were amazing! I really love my photos and it felt surreal knowing that these are the photos I will be looking at years down the line.She's a great photographer who takes their job serious. I would recommend her to anyone!"

"I had an amazing couples photo shoot session with Hawaa! She is so sweet and down to earth when you meet her. Her skills as a photographer are phenomenal as she captures the perfect moments with you and your partner. Hawaa guided us through poses and everything felt so natural as she took the photos. The pictures came out beautifully digitally & on print. I’m very happy with how the whole experience turned out I would highly recommend Hawaa & her talent for photography!"
