Meet the Team
Hello there! My name is Amber DeCicco, and I am a photographer based out of Oahu. I find so much satisfaction in taking photographs of unbelievably precious and momentous memories for people! Right now I am focusing most of my attention on being a birth photographer and photographing births, but would also love the opportunity to photograph your monumental events; your weddings, family reunions, family sessions, newborns, maternity photos, documentary sessions anything that you want to remember in the years to come.
My photography journey has been such an exciting, meaningful adventure! I find so much satisfaction in taking photographs of unbelievably precious and momentous memories for people; the laughter, the pain, the joy, the tears and the moments that make you feel so deeply your gut hurts. I believe documenting life is important to remember and pass down through generations.
Originally I'm from Nebraska but when I met the love of my life, Brian, all bets were off and we were married in September 2016. He is amazing :). Because he is in the Air Force, I left the land of corn and moved to beautiful Hawaii—a photographer's dream!
I am an artist at heart, a chef, computer nerd, and am usually smiling. We have two super fun and very active dogs, Bruce and Ginger. I have a BFA in Graphic Design degree from Concordia University, and don't give up easily. I love hiking and being outdoors, and also am an avid ultimate frisbee player. I love Jesus, and I truly believe is that life is good and people are also intrinsically good. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories, and am constantly surprised at our desires to have relationships and be connected to others.
My sweet husband helps me as a second shooter and helper during weddings and larger family sessions. He fell into the photography gig when we were dating and I needed extra muscle to help me carry equipment at a wedding! I handed him a camera while he was waiting around and now he loves taking photos! In fact, when we go hiking or exploring, he's always the one with the camera in hand.
Now, Brian sometimes second shoots for me and helps me with the logistics at weddings. He also gives me a hand with equipment and things like that during family sessions, or anytime I need help using a reflector—he's my go to!
Brian is from New York, but the Air Force has taken him all over. He is passionate about the weather (he's a meteorologist), loves to be outside (no matter the weather) and especially loves hiking and paddle boarding. When we aren't working, you can usually find the two of us out adventuring somewhere!
Meet my friend Noelle! We met through a military spouses photography group here on island, and quickly became friends and business partners. Noelle is the amazing filmmaker (videographer) at Sweet Rain Media and she is so passionate about capturing stories for families and couples, she thrives on capturing the love between people, and does it so well.
Noelle and I have recently partnered together in our birth photography endeavors. We have created a collective together, a separate website devoted to all things birth. It's called the Hawaii Birth Collective. She is also my first choice as a birth backup photographer and videographer, so you may be meeting her!
