Why They Love Us...

Andrea & Tim

Robin Our family planned a vacation to The Big Island and wanted to capture beautiful island memories with professional photography.  We chose Robin Bourne Photography.   Everything was organized and executed brilliantly.  The location they selected was incredible.  We are thrilled to have quality photos to remember our wonderful family vacation along with a few romantic pictures celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary.  I highly recommend Robin Bourne Photography and will certainly use them on our next visit to Hawaii.  P.S. Our pictures on the DVD arrived today.  They are crazy beautiful.  We look like movie stars from fashion magazine! Wow!  You are talented beyond words! Thanks for making lasting physical memories for us to treasure. No doubt we will contact you on our next visit to the Big Island. Hugs,The Sanfords

Dan, Shannon & Kiara... Kukio Beach

Aloha Robin. Thank you for personally delivering the photo package cd/flash stick this evening to our hotel. Very professional package! We are thrilled with the photos and I even managed to smile for many of them. lol. Anyway, we really enjoyed meeting you and our photo shoot with you. Your passion, professionalism and enthusiasm made it great even for a seasoned model like me. Lol. Again, thank you for capturing our special moments. Best regards, Dan (Shannon and Kiara).

James & Lisa

Hi Robin, We wanted to thank you again for capturing our memories of our time on the big island. We are so amazed and impressed with your work and your photos will always be a highlight of our holiday. We were so impressed with your relaxed yet professional approach to our first photo shoot. It was so much fun! We can't wait to come back to Kona and have you capture our story again. Mahalo nui loa! Lisa and James Carlson and family

Wright Family

Dear Robin, Thank you for a marvelous job in taking pictures of our whole family. You had three generations to work with, and you made it fun for everyone, no exceptions. We were worried about the little ones - six of them from 4 years old to 9 years old - becoming restless. You made the experience so much fun that they ALL were not only willing but eager to cooperate. What a touch. It was so good, that our planned 1-1/2 hour session grew to 2-1/2 hours with no fatigue at all (at least on the part of the subjects). The results were marvelous. Sixteen people are going to keep looking at those pictures for a long time, and it will make them all smile. So you will be responsible for a LOT of smiles as they look at the pictures, but also as they remember the experience of creating them. Thank you. Sharon and Don Wright and family.

Burkey Family

Aloha Robin, "There is no other photographer that can compete with Robin! I can't begin to say how much fun this was. I have used several professional photographers in the past, but I have never felt so comfortable in the environment of taking photos. Robin's professionalism is far superior to anyone else I have used. Her ease with the subjects (12 adults and 3 children) was so relaxed, she flowed through the group with such finesse, and skill, we never felt rushed or posed. The photos were extraordinary, she has such an eye for detail. You won't be disappointed- Tina & Steve Burkey, Kailua Kona, HI

Fesser Family

Hi Robin,We have spent much time going through all the beautiful pictures you took of our family. Just want to say thank you for all your attention to details, and especially for how great you were with all of our kids! We are so pleased with everything and have already recommended you to other families who visit the Big Island! Mahalo!Marlene

Hi Robin,Well, we made it home! I miss Hawaii already...I had a chance to look at your pictures of our family - they are very beautiful and are exactly what I wanted. You really did a wonderful job capturing our family and we had a lot of fun as well. You were very easy to work with and are very talented. I am really happy we chose you for our pictures! Thank you again, Suzanne

Robin,WOW!!! You do amazing work! Loaded the photos on to the computer today and, although we are not too surprised, we are so impressed with the quality and creativity you exhibit in your craft. We could tell from the moment we met that our session would be perfect and it truly was. Your framing of the scenery and sunset were exactly what we were hoping for and your ability to capture us in our zany, fun loving fashion worked perfectly. The more traditional shots were exceptional! They will round out the picture album and provide mantle photos for us and the rest of the family. Mahalo, Mahalo, Mahalo, Andy and Lisa.....

Mantell Family

Hi Robin.  We all got together today and reviewed the photos.  We all agree that you did such a great job and it will be hard to choose!  You made this experience so memorable for us!  I hope you will pay us a visit if you make a trip to Northern California.  We all live very close to each other and would love to show you our area.  Not nearly as beautiful as the beach you took us took.  Thank you so much. Memories that will last a lifetime!Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!P.S.  The owner for the condo we rented followed up on our stay.  I told her to recommend you for any clients looking for a photographer!Mahalo! Amy

Dear Robin,We are back home after our wonderful family vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. I am so glad that we were able to take time to get with you for a nice, concise photo session with the whole family. We all enjoyed our time that evening with you so much. I thought that some of the guys might complain about taking the time for the photography, but you were so pleasant and worked so efficiently with the 7 of us that we all had a good time and there were NO complaints at all ! Yea ! And to make matters even better, we left Hawaii with many gorgeous pictures of the family and the memories of precious time spent together in the most beautiful and relaxing place on earth ! All the pictures turned out beautifully---we have so many to choose from. Thank you so much for working within our time schedule and getting our photo disc to us so promptly so we could bring it home with us. I can't wait to get the prints made to display in our homes.We will be sure to give you a call the next time we return to Hawaii-- we may even have some new additions to the family by that time !Mahalo nui loa !Susan WheatHouston, TX

Aloha Robin! Thank you SOOO much for the lovely experience during our family's photo shoot. We were all impressed with your professionalism, sense of humor, patience with the little ones (and big ones for that matter), and your wonderful photography. It was a very memorable experience and we have gorgeous photos to help preserve the memory forever. I'm so grateful I found you! My parents were, too, and really pleased with the whole experience. We look forward to more photos with you next time we visit the Big Island.Warmest aloha! Kristen

Erika & Roger

Robin, You are a good person and an excellent photographer! Not to mention, affordable :-) I'll tell you, I looked and shopped around for "The Best" and I found it! I called around the east coast, on the main land, and the Hawaiian Islands. I needed a photographer for the wedding and a second for the Hawaiian honeymoon. I wanted everything a girl could imagine! I wanted "The Fairy Tale" wedding that many women dream of, that most of them never get...AND we didn't want to have to "work for the rest of our lives to pay it all back" either. I knew in my own head, I was being a little outrageous, but I had to top it all off with "a horse on the beach, in Hawaii, with my dress." This would give the memories of a life time and would make my "fairy tale image," in my head come to life. After calling around the Hawaiian Islands (Especially the big island), you are the only one who didn't laugh at my idea or tell me it was "impossible." Then to top it off, you went out of your way to make it happen and we still had a little cash left to go scuba diving! lol I'll tell you, my sister is a professional make up artist and cosmetologist, she works with photographers all day long and has for about 15 years. She was impressed with your skills of expertise. Photography is not all about photo shop, you need to know what your doing when you take the photo! Ever single last picture shows your attention to detail, not just of my dress but the lighting, angels, and scenery as well. Robin, it is clear that you enjoy your job because you care more than others did and went above and beyond to make our special moment that much more special and memorable. Roger and I couldn't be more happy with what you have done for us, and the photos came out perfect too! It's more fun, and easy to smile, when you like the person taking your picture. Your a sweet, kind hearted woman Robin. Please keep in touch! We would love to come back and visit you some time! You really did help make "a dream come true." Love, Erika & Roger

Thank you so much for the great pictures that you captured for us! We loved the pictures and appreciate the time you and Brian took with our family. The images you took are priceless to us, especially the images of our kids. We had such a great time during our session...I thank you for that and for making us feel like family not just another client. =) Mahalo Nui Loa! Thanks Robin! Kathy

Robin; We have been back to Minnesota just a few weeks and we have had such great feedback on the wedding pictures. We are both honored to be a part of your web page and cannot thank you enough for the wonderful memories of our wedding. As we show people our photo's, they get a great sense of the flow of the wedding. We are also trying to explain to everyone the significance of the different portions of the ceremony, however, sometimes it is difficult to remember all of the details. If you have a chance would you mind asking Keoni if he can e-mail us a summary of the ceremony. Thanks again for all your help. We love, love love, the photos Eric and Samantha

Dear Robin, We are home; but how I wish we were back in Hawaii. The only good thing is that I will forever have the amazing photos you took of our family. You truly captured our fun loving spirited family. Thank you so much for making our 10th wedding anniversary photos with our kids so memorable. We absolutely loved the beach you chose for our photo shoot. It was breathtaking. You kept the kids entertained, engaged and participating in the photo shoot. Brandon loved his encounter with the green sea turtles and I will forever have it captured in the photos. I love every single one of them. Now my dilemma is picking out which ones to actually print. We have over 250 photos!!! Mahalo from the bottom of our hearts. We are already looking forward to our next photo session with you. It was great meeting you and your assistant. We wish you all the best. We are definitely telling everyone we know who is traveling to the Big Island of Hawaii to book a photo session with the best photographer in town ~ You. Love ~ Karen, Craig, Emily Anne and Brandon Charles Pinkerton

Hi Robin, The Christmas Cards are so beautiful! They are the BEST christmas cards i've ever had! I can't wait to send them this year! The card itself is actually more beautiful and vibrant than what is shown on the website! I'll send along a card for your samples shortly. I want to say THANK YOU so much for all your hard work to make our family photos in Hawaii beautiful and memorable...and now we can share that moment too with all our friends and family. Esleen

Hi Robin, Just wanted to let you know I received the flashdrive & DVD last week and we're enjoying the pictures a lot.

Dear Robin, Thank you so much for our gorgeous wedding pictures! You truly captured the joy and love that we felt on that day. We have been having such a great time sharing our photos with our family and friends who can't believe that we found such a great photographer from 5,000 miles away! Thank you for your beautiful work and for your help with the details. All of your special added touches helped make our wedding and time in Hawaii amazing! Daniele and I loved what you wrote on your website about our wedding! What a surprise that was! You really made us feel special. We loved having champagne as we watched our photo presentation at your studio. Daniele commented that was the first time someone offered him wine in an office in the United States. In Italy all business is done over a glass of wine so that was really special for Daniele! We fell even deeper in love in Hawaii and at the same time fell in love with Hawaii. We can't wait to come back to visit the island and all of our new friends! We just can't thank you enough! Mahalo! Daniele & Jennifer

I wanted to say that you brought to life the beauty and magic of Hawaii so that I was able to bring home a little piece of Hawaiian treasure in the form of your photographs. You are a dedicated and true professional. I would highly and gladly recommend you to anyone interested in photography in Hawaii. Thank You, Bruce
