What you'll do

Before your experience, we will perfectly craft your custom haku lei/ti leaf hula skirt based on your preferences. We will use fresh tropical flowers to craft your perfect haku lei just for you. I will contact you as soon as you book your photo shoot to know what type of haku lei you envision. This will be a souvenir that you can keep and wear throughout the duration of your stay. Our leis last 4-7 days refrigerated. Upon arrival, we will help you get changed into your ideal outfit. If you would like to wear Polynesian attire we will provide a Tahitian hand dyed sarong, hand painted sarongs OR ti leaf hula skirt (instead of haku lei), Polynesian jewelry, Tahitian pearls and we will take extraordinary photos of you wearing our flowers on a beautiful private, secret beach for 30 minutes. Afterwards, we will send you 10-12 professionally edited high resolution photos 1-2 weeks after the experience by email. You will be able to leave this special photo experience with the fresh flowers as a keepsake and special souvenir. We can provide fresh haku leis for both men and women so couples are welcome! To see all of our floral creations, please visit us on Instagram (@oahuleis) *Photos should be used for personal use only and not for financial gain*

Kiana

Born and raised in Laie, Hawaii, I have been making leis with my Mom since I was 4 years old. I began my career at one year old as a professional dancer at the Polynesian Cultural Center. I have performed and taught Polynesian dancing all over the world and traveled with the PCC promotional team & BYU Living Legends promoting Polynesian culture on every continent. We had to make our own lei po'o and costume attire for every performance and share our culture with every audience member. I have a deep passion for my culture and I would love to share it with you. Since then, my Mom and I started a business called "O'ahu Leis" and we make tropical leis for guests from all of the world. I learned from the best: my beautiful and talented Mom. She has been making leis for 30+ years and has won numerous lei making awards in Hawaii and Tahit
