We had an intimate wedding on our property and B was a wonderful addition to our special day. I'm in the photography business so i was super excited about my wedding photos and worked hard to find the right person for the wedding.
she responded to my initial inquiry email immediately. She was in touch a couple weeks before, the day before, and the morning of. Any time I texted, called, IG direct messaged- she was promp and professional and very sweet in her responses.
Professionalism: her contract and payment was clear, fair, easy to understand, and easy to sign. She showed up on the day of looking beautiful and presentable, 15 minutes early. She has top of the line gear and handles her equipment as if it was an extension of her own body. The way she delivered the gallery was beautifully curate and easy to download onto my phone and laptop.
Artistry: 1000000/10. OMG. The images B captured were stunning. She is truly and artist. These photos mean the world to me. You too will love your photos if you book with her. They made all my Pinterest dreams come true. And this is unheard of: SHE DELIVERED ALL MY EDITED WEDDING PHOTOS THE NEXT DAY BEFORE NOON!!!! She must have went home and worked all night. I couldn't believe it. Again, I am also a photographer and what she did in an evening would have taken me two weeks at least.
- Austin & Matt
Price: she is very honest and open about her pricing. No hidden fees or extra add ons. She has it all priced on her inquiry page and she called me to answer any questions I had. She totally worked with me and my budget. I didn't price around (I was set on using her!!) but I believe she is in the same ball park pricing as most other photographers in the area.
We wanted to go to a special spot away from the venue that we had to drive to- and unfortunately it started raining and we had to go to a different spot. I was initially bummed that my first idea didn't work out, but once I got the photos I forgot all about it. It was a make it work moment and boy did she make it work!!
Overall- book this lady. You will be happy you did.
TheWanderingB did an AMAZING job capturing our engagement on the Big Island of Hawaii in September. She was super helpful in preparation on choosing a location and consulting on the best way to go about planning for the experience and shoot. The pictures came out mind-blowingly well and we will cherish them forever. We've been looking at them every day since and can't believe how incredible they came out. Thank you to TheWanderingB for making our big day even more special! could not recommend her more.

Better late than never- my review is a little late and I rarely take the time to leave them, but I had to for Bea! Having had a few other photo shoots in my life, this was by far the most fun! Bea made us comfortable even though we felt awkward in front of the camera - she helped us loosen up! She knows exactly how to get the best shots, chose great spots with the best scenery and we truly enjoyed her company. Thank you Bea! If anyone is deciding on an elopement photographer, this is your gal!
- Amanda & Marlene
Béa is fantastic to work with and you will not regret booking with her. She is so talented! I have never felt more confident in front of a camera than I did with Béa. She puts you at ease and makes you laugh the entire time. I definitely cried a little when I got the pictures back. The photos were absolutely stunning. I have never felt so beautiful. I cannot recommend Béa enough. Just reach out to Béa and find out how amazing she is for yourself!
-Christina & Kris
As a couple that travels a lot together we tend to take photoshoots here and there. Bea has been the best photographer we have ever worked with. She is so playful, calm, and progressional. She knows exactly how to communicate what we need to do in order to get the perfect shot. She is so understanding and willing to work with our needs and vision. If you need a photographer for any event, this is a photographer you’d be foolish to pass on. She is literally the best!!
- Daphne & Dan
Beatrice was more than just a photographer, she became a great friend who took amazing pictures and made our special day feel above and beyond anything we had expected.
Béa’s amazing energy made our day that much more special. She was enthusiastic, encouraging, positive, and professional. The photos she captured are MAGNIFICENT. She is just a great person to be around and we are thrilled she was our photographer!
-Ivan & Olena
This was our first time with a photographer and we were blown away. My girlfriend (now fiancé) was very nervous about having our pictures taken. Bea was awesome she made it very fun and our pictures were all very beautiful.
After having to change our photoshoot date/time, Bea was so accommodating to our needs. During our shoot, she made us feel comfortable and made the process so easy. Our pictures came out beautiful and we had so much fun! Thank you Bea!
- Tayla & Trent
My fiancé and I were traveling to Hawaii on vacation and found Bea to do our engagement photos. She was responsive and so interested in getting to know us before the shoot. She made us feel right at home and the shoot was so fun and she had creative ideas. We are absolutely in LOVE with our photos and would definitely recommend Bea to others.
-Christina & Taylor
We truly lucky in finding Bea. It’s not easy finding a great photographer that’s willing to work well with your budget and have flexibility. Bea took the time to know us before the wedding and she knew exactly how to make you feel comfortable infront of the camera. Our pictures of our engagement and wedding are priceless, we couldn’t have found a better person to be part of our day capturing the most special moments. Highly recommend.
- Lauren & Hudson
B was absolutely so amazing to work with! She made us feel so comfortable during the shoot and was so fun to work with. We received the photos the very next day and they were AMAZING!!! She captured the most beautiful moments and we could not have asked for more perfect photos. Will be contacting her again!!!

Béa was a phenomenal choice for our wedding photographer! Having worked in the wedding industry for over 5 years with countless photographers, I can easily say Béa was one of the best photographers I have worked with and made my wife and I feel relaxed during our couple's photos and throughout our wedding day. Also, all of our photos turned out fantastic! For any couples looking for a travel/engagement/wedding photographer; definitely reach out to Béa, you won't be disappointed!
- Mitchell & Sarah
Béa @ The Wandering B Photography was seriously the best! She made everything incredibly easy for us. From our very first interactions with her she was super personable and very transparent about the process and the cost and what we could expect.
She helped us pick the absolute perfect spot to elope on the big island, it was truly a magical place. She helped us nail down timing for beautiful sunset light rays and kept an eye on tide charts. Béa was very easy to communicate with via email, text and phone call and had super quick response time. The day of our elopement we had some delays (people, traffic etc,) but Béa rolled with the punches and still made sure we had an absolutely incredible time (and got some awesome photos of it too!) I would book Béa over and over and over again. Worth every penny and then some!!

We found B online for a couples' photography session – after about 6 hours of research, we thought she produced such chic, romantic pictures and decided to hire her. Best decision ever! She was responsive, quick to follow up, and happy to work with our ideas while bringing her own vision to the two hours we were together. She was able to work a multitude of different backdrops in one area and happily accommodated any and all requests (e.g., numerous outfit changes, wanting to get in the water, etc). I found B to be an easy person to converse with as well, which always helps with relaxing those in front of the camera – she also gave prescriptive instructions while posing which was very helpful. B turned around all of the photos in about 24 hours, which was so unexpected and a really pleasant surprise – and, of course, they exceeded all of our expectations. If you're on the fence about hiring B, just do it – she'll take very good care of you. Thank you B for your hard work and talent, and we look forward to seeing your business and portfolio grow!

If you planned a wedding in 2020, chances are it didn’t go to *original* plan. We are so thankful we were able to work with Bea after our elopement plans, our back up plans, and our back up to the back up plans were ruined. She squeezed us in on her personal trip to Oahu when it was clear we wouldn’t make it to big island. We are in love with the gallery!! My husband had so much fun during the shoot that he has probably been more eager to share than I have! Bea also promised and delivered a quicker turn around time and larger gallery than most other photographers in the same price range. She made sure our shoot was comfortable and reflected US, rather than just giving us uncomfortable poses.
Thank you, B!! Maybe we will see ya on the east coast one day
-Stephanie & Roberto
We worked with Bea while visiting the Big Island, and are so happy that we chose her! She is as sweet as can be, and really takes the time to get to know her couples prior to shooting. She has a way of making you feel comfortable, my husband and I laughed the whole time which resulted in capturing the most natural photos. These are some of our favorite photos we have ever had taken, I can’t recommend her enough!
-Rachel & Blake
We hired Bea to take our family pictures while on vacation in Hawaii. She was easy to communicate with via email and provided everything I needed to know to make a decision. Once deciding on her services, she called me to chat and discuss further. Once in Hawaii she was super sweet!! We instantly felt comfortable around her and had the best time! She provided me with a sneak peek later that day and I was in love!! Best decision ever! She has an eye for perfect lighting and great shots. She even gave us a recommendation for the best dinner and dessert we had on the island. Highly recommended!
Our elopement was planned last minute - king of a spur of the moment deal! We connected with Beatrice just a few days before our elopement and she was so friendly and kind and made all arrangements necessary for us!! It was such a relief that she was so willing to put us first and work with us on a personal level! We absolutely adore our photos and we will forever cherish them!

We contacted her like 2 days before the shooting. we have no words to tell how responsive and how quick she was. Everything seemed very straightforward and easy with her. She had a lot of shooting ideas and her own style. she knows what she was doing. My husband hates photography sessions normally but she totally knew how to get him into it. Within 24 hours, she delivered us our pictures "exceptionally" for our honeymoon as we were leaving. Without her, we would never had such a wonderful honeymoon memories of Hawaii. What we liked the most was that she took some time to get to know us at the beginning, started by asking us what we like, and what we don't like etc. she has also been very flexible on our some special requests. I think, usually she delivers within 15 days. but she did an express version given our situation.
Thank you so Much Béa :)

BEA TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING!
