Many many heart warming messages from my thoughtful and kind clients.  Thank you so much!


Mieko was amazing to work with!
We were so impressed with the wonderful job Mieko did at our wedding. She was comfortable to work with, professional, guided us through poses and we had a lot of fun working with her! The pictures came out even more amazing than I had ever expected, I'm so glad we chose her as our photographer. Highly recommend!

The photos are fantastic!  We have been looking at them over and over since you sent them.  We love them!  It was great to meet you, and we were so happy that you could switch back and forth between Japanese and English for our guests - it made a huge difference.
Thank you for the congratulations and nice words below.
If any of our friends or family are getting married in Hawaii in the future (or if we return for a family reunion or something and are taking some photos), we will of course be recommending you! 
Kind regards,
Brian and Fujiko



"Craig and I wanted to thank you again for helping create a perfect wedding day for us. Your kindness, professionalism and great humor and spirit was very much appreciated.

Dear Mieko,

We just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful photographs you took of our wedding. We so appreciated your professionalism and kindness. The photographs are truly incredible, far beyond what Wesley and ever hoped for. They captured our wedding day and everything we wanted- the beauty of the island, the love of our family, and the happiness we felt. The photographs tell the story of the day, with a perfect mix of black and whites, colors; candid shots and poses. They are a perfect combination of sophistication, youthfulness and artistry, but most importantly every photograph is natural and is us and our family. Mieko knows the grounds of The Grand Wailea so well and was able to accommodate our wishes and all of these amazing ideas of her own. We were absolutely blown away by some of the breathtaking photographs, amazing sunsets, magnificent lighting and an eye for details. We loved the photographs so much we had to get a wedding album right away! We are thrilled with are wedding album design, (almost as amazing as the photographs themselves) and cannot wait to share it with our family and friends. We have the photographs all over the house, as they remind us of the wonderful day and are so beautiful. Friends and family have been requesting copies of pictures for gifts! We are planning to visit Maui again this April, for an early anniversary, as we are expecting in June. The next time we travel to beautiful Maui, we hope to have family portraits done by Mieko, to capture another important milestone in our lives! Mieko is a true artist and a kind spirit, a blessing on our wedding day.

Much Love and Thanks,

Mieko is a true artist. Her photography captures the essence of her subjects. We asked Mieko to photograph our classrooms and our students and the images were more than we expected. She truly showed the personality of our school through her work. Thank you Mieko!

Dear Miekosan

Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures. They are just so good. I do appreciate your work.  I felt comfortable and less nervous when you talked to me and were taking the pictures while I was getting ready for the wedding.
I do also love the way you took pictures. You made everyone feel happy and comfortable when you were taking the pictures!
I am extremely grateful to you for your work, your wonderful personalities and kindness to my sister Iku.

Best wishes.

Aloha Mieko,

I am extremely pleased with the photos you took of my listing at 63 Hoolapa Place.  I found your work to be a step above the norm. They were thoughtful, even Artful. They add another dimension to my listing and I greatly appreciate it.  You captured the true essence of the home.  Thank you!  Since putting them up on the MLS, I have had two very interested parties, one already working on an offer. Mahalo for your Work.
