about

I believe in soulmates. I fell in love with mine when we were just kids. He had a piece of my heart since I was old enough to give it away and when we were just a bit older, he came back for the whole thing. He is my other half, my first love, and my soulmate. We have a passion for supporting others through infertility, as we too shared that battle and have since welcomed 3 beautiful babies into our lives. They are our miracles. 

That is our love story. Hi, I'm Cherie and I am, at my core, a sentimental dreamer who has the unique honor of capturing the love stories of amazing couples through an art form that runs in my blood.

NO.1

I often say "we" or "us" when referring to Cherie Mariko Photography. While I (Cherie) am the lead photographer and your main point of contact, Maika is the glue that holds it all together. He's my rock and is always pushing me to do more... be more. He handles most of the back-end business aspects of it all so I can focus on my couples and families. He is also fully trained as a second shooter, bag carrier, lighting fixer, and snack bringer. ;)

*Hachi, our yellow lab pup, made us a family of three and we love her to pieces. She's sweet, slightly sassy, and loves getting things in the mail- no, I'm not joking.
*Maika & I were both born and raised in Hawaii. I grew up dancing hula and playing on Hawaiian sands and I couldn't be more grateful for the childhood I had.
*I have watched every episode of FRIENDS and still laugh out loud at the reruns. 
*We own way too many pillows than is necessary and I basically live in pajamas.

We consistently photograph weddings in California and Hawaii but our love for travel has taken us all over the world. We can't wait for our next adventure!

Destination Wedding Photography Collections are easier to book than you think, so don't be shy! My heart belongs in Europe, but we also love sharing tips on where to go, what to see, and what to eat in Hawaii.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Years from now, when the glitz and glam of your big day has ended, the early years of diapers, bottles, and middle of the night baby cuddles have faded into memories, or your children are grown with littles ones of their own... I want the love you felt on the day that we captured these photos to come through and warm your hearts like only a beloved photo can do.

I want to capture photos that will become part of your family legacy, passed down and treasured by your children and grandchildren.

Love is the only reality I choose to live in and that's why I do what I do!

"Thank you so much for all the help and support you've given us throughout this entire wedding process. You were literally the first vendor we hired, and I've looked to you for advice so often. We had a blast working with you and you made us feel so comfortable. And your photos are phenomenal!"
