Aloha! I'm Megan, the creative force behind the lens and the chair at Big Island Hawaii Makeup. Nestled in the breathtaking landscapes of Hawaii, I find inspiration in the vibrant colors, golden sunsets, and the love stories that unfold against this paradise backdrop.
Originally hailing from Southern California, I made the leap to call Hawaii home with my husband and our two beautiful children. Together, we've crafted a life filled with gratitude, love, and the joy of raising a family in this tropical haven.
With two decades of experience in the beauty industry, GLAM holds a special place in my heart—it's my first love and the beating heart of my business. In the last five years, I've seamlessly woven another passion into my offerings—capturing the essence of special moments through photography.
When I'm not perfecting bridal looks or framing timeless memories, you'll find me embracing the simple joys of life. Whether it's sinking my toes in the sand at the beach, finding balance through yoga, savoring a glass of wine, or marveling at the magical colors of a sunset, I cherish every moment. Beyond the beauty realm, I'm a lover of crystals, an astrology enthusiast, and I find joy in the delicate dance of flowers and the artistry of interior design. My keen eye for all things beautiful extends beyond the makeup chair to create visual stories that last a lifetime.
Join me on this journey where every click of the shutter captures not just images, but the emotions, stories, and the beauty that surrounds us. Let's create memories that will be cherished for generations.
Mahalo for letting me be a part of your special moments.
With love and gratitude,
What we do
