MEET ANELA BENAVIDES
Aloha! My name is Anela Benavides from the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. I’ve been lucky to call this paradise home for my entire life! I am 20 years old and I have an amazing husband named Brandon who is from New Zealand and together we have a beautiful daughter Mahina, which means “Moon” in Hawaiian. I have always been such a passionate, driven person in everything I do.
I have always had a love for photography. I started my photography career a half a year ago and within that time I have gotten so many amazing opportunities. I feel blessed as a photographer to make my vision a reality. I am not your ordinary photographer taking pictures for the heck of it, I take photos to capture those REAL authentic moments. My absolute fav photos are couples/weddings/elopements. There’s something about the way lovers look at each other that makes everything seem just so right!
I crave taking photos of the adventurous, the creative minds and the carefree! I promise to capture the raw, authentic moments and create memories that will last a lifetime. SO LET’S CREATE!
