“The pictures Robby took of me and my family were incredible.  I told him what I wanted, and he picked the perfect spot (Hapuna Beach).  He took the pictures around sunset and the lighting was perfect.  The pictures of my daughter were especially wonderful.  The session was laid back, relaxing, and he made all of us laugh–and all of this is reflected in the pictures.  Robby was personable, professional, and I’d highly recommend him to capture your Big Island Hawaiian experience in pictures.”

“My husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and requested Robby’s expertise in helping us capture the moment!  His choice of locale and professionalism resulted in lovely photos that we will cherish for years to come.  He made us feel at ease, is friendly and very approachable, and created a truly fun and comfortable experience for us. Thanks, Robby, for making lasting memories for us and our family.”

“My family was going to be traveling to Hawaii to visit my dad and I wanted a great way to preserve the memories. I searched online for photographers in the Kona area and happened upon Robby’s site. I loved his photos immediately and emailed him to book a date. He was very quick in his response then and also whenever I had the occasional question. Once the day came, the shoot couldn’t have gone better. Robby was very fun to work with and he captured our family beautifully.  I was amazed at the results! The next time we visit, I’ll definitely call on him again! It’s worth it to have such beautiful memories for a lifetime.”

“Robby took our wedding photos, and he did an amazing job. The entire experience was easy and fun, from our first email to receiving our photos in the mail. You can tell that he takes joy and pride with what he does, because he creates beautiful works of art. The breadth of photos and coverage of the wedding was superb. Robby was able to capture moments without us even noticing which allowed us to be ourselves and to enjoy our wedding. Half of our guests spoke very little English, and Robby was always kind and patient. We couldn’t be happier with our experience and would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.”

Robby did an awesome job on our pictures!  He was easy-going and friendly and managed to make our little rascal look like a perfect gentleman.  I love his artistic perspective and how he captures the beauty of the surroundings.  He was super professional from beginning to end and quickly got our pictures to us.  When we return to the Big Island we will definitely be giving Robby a call for another shoot.

“In planning for our wedding over a 3-week time frame and being on a limited budget, a professional photographer was something we greatly wanted but if necessary, could do without.  In my search, I came across Robby’s webpage and was taken by the beautiful photos displayed in his albums.  Robby went above and beyond to get to know a little about my husband and me.  Through several emails and phone conversations, Robby worked with us and our budget to provide us with wonderful memories of our special day.  Upon meeting Robby for the first time on our wedding day, he immediately set off to work capturing every special moment.  Robby was so patient with my energetic 22-month old daughter (who absolutely loved posing for his camera).  Throughout the whole experience, Robby was prompt, professional, courteous, and a joy to work with.  He made my husband and I feel completely at ease when taking the photos and I could not be happier in how they turned out.  Robby had our photos up on his website within 24 hours where we and our family were able to view them.  I know that I will always treasure these photos and I have Robby to thank for that.  I highly recommend Robby for any occasion and would gladly use him again in the future during our visits to the island.”

“Booking a photographer sight unseen over the Internet can be a little anxiety producing but I can’t say enough good things about Robby Malovic. He was personable, really flexible (when I thought it looked like rain was coming in) and he captured once in a life time moments for my family and me in both artsy and traditional forms. He’s also very nice and patient with kids- a big plus in my book. Book him!”

We had a great time with Robby! We were totally new to Hawaii, so we let him choose the place and time for us. The location was great, and the sunset colors were amazing. I don’t always feel very comfortable in front of a camera, and maternity sessions are a little special, but Robby made us feel really comfortable and was always suggesting spots or outfits that would be good. Robby sent us a picture a few days after the shooting and we were totally excited about the other pictures to come! About a week later we were able to look at the pictures on the web gallery and share them with our friends and family, and another week after that we received the DVD with the rest of the pictures. We thought it was great work and were amazed how fast we could get the photos. Great work and efficiency! Thank you again!

Take care,



Robby was absolutely amazing. Right from the start to the very end, he proved to be punctual, professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. He has a great attitude and enjoyable personality, which helps a lot when working with people. He took beautiful photos and his turn-around time to post them was much faster than anticipated. We would highly recommend Robby for any occasion!

I HIGHLY recommend Robby for wedding or family photography. He did such an amazing job for our wedding here on the Big Island in February. The photos are magazine quality! We hardly even noticed he was there, yet he captured so many moments exquisitely. We ended up with hundreds of shots to choose from, and they were all fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about Robby. From beginning to end, he was very professional and a lot of fun to work with.

During our family vacation to Kona, we discovered some scenic spots and made a spontaneous decision to have family photos taken to capture our family among these beautiful backdrops.  I received Robby’s card among the two referrals from our hotel.  Robby returned my call promptly.  He was professional, courteous, and flexible to our tight vacation timetable.  We thoroughly enjoyed working with Robby.  He worked well with our young, active kids and patiently explored numerous sites with us.  He also made sure to take my requests into consideration. We received our photos earlier than promised and they turned out better than we could have hoped for!  The colors are vibrant and the composition of each photo highlights our family among the gorgeous tropical backdrops. We highly recommend Robby and would happily use them again if given the opportunity.

Robert is a professional photographer that we are pleased to have used. I was a little nervous about using someone without meeting them first and reserving online, but we went by his gallery, and we were very impressed. I have used local photographers in the past and had been very unhappy. I was pleased with how relaxed the photo shoot went and how Robert made sure we got all the poses we wanted. All of my friends were amazed how Robert’s pictures captured the sunset.

“Robby was a great resource to have while my family was visiting Hawaii.  He told us of the great locations in the area and I was able to show him photos of what we were looking for. We coordinated everything by email and met up at the beach weeks later. We had a wonderful sunset and got some great pictures. Robby did a great job and was very easy to work with. He was professional and we’d love to go back so we can get more pictures done by him. We got our pictures quickly and will enjoy them for a long time. This will be hanging in our house forever! Thanks Robby!”  – The Brown Family
