Krystle Marcellus Photography | About

Hey! my name is Krystle Marcellus and a photographer, videographer and photography teacher based in Hawaii.


A little about me...

I love good light, like LOVE it. (Love it like I am even willing to wake up at 5 a.m. to hike a mountain and chase a sunrise.)

I believe that laughing is one of the most important things in life.

Avocado. everywhere.

I love meeting new people and diving into their worlds with my camera.

I believe that traveling has made me a better person. 

And I believe that finding out what makes you laugh, will lead me to capturing a beautiful moment.


I have had the opportunity to work as a photographer for over 10 years. Sometimes it feels like my camera is an extension of my arm. My specialty in photography is, well, you. I specialize in people. I am after real moments.

I got my start as a photojournalist, working for newspapers like: Honolulu Star-Advertiser, The Philadelphia Bulletin and Philadelphia Daily News. I've taken that experience of capturing decisive moments in the news, to capturing your moments. I look for love, for quiet glances, for big laughs that you can't hold in. I also look for passion & inspiration, from small business owners and community members who feel deeply about their work. And as a photography teacher, I wait for that "aha!" moment when I'm working with my students.

I'd love to hear more about your and your project! Please contact me to talk about your next photography session.
