Wedding Photographer and Filmmaker
Aloha everyone! My name is Shaneika Aguilar and I'm born and raised on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Storylite Studios started in 2016 all because of my love for storytelling and people. But my professional career in filmmaking and photography actually began in the summer of 2013, after my high school graduation. I began filming love stories and wedding films of close friends and family. I further developed my craft throughout college and am a proud UH Manoa Academy for Creative Media graduate. In doing so, I found purpose in the work that I created and I hope to continue creating with intention and serving those I meet.

My fiance and I did our engagement photos with Shaneika, and couldn't be happier. We are both very camera awkward people, but Shaneika made us feel comfortable and reassured us that we were doing great. Although, the weather conditions weren't the greatest at our first location, Shaneika produced amazing photos for us. She is so patient, kind, and just a beautiful soul. You will definitely not regret working with her!
Jessica and Troy
Troy and I hired Shaneika when we decided to renew our vows for our 10 year wedding anniversary in Kauai. I decided I REALLY wanted a video as we never got one for our wedding day. WOW what a treat it was. The video is breathtaking and everything we wanted and more. I also asked Shaneika if she would include a few photos as our families were all coming from Canada to meet us in Hawaii, she captured us perfectly and they are all so special to look back at. Shaneika's talent speaks for itself but what you can't see from the photos / videos is how amazingly sweet she is. SO accommodating and kind. I would HIGHLY recommend her!! Thank you so much again Shaneika for this beautiful gift you've given our family xoxox

I had the pleasure of working with the Storylite Studios crew for a wedding. Shaneika leads a team of professional and accommodating people! They didn't just take pictures, they truly set the tone for the after-ceremony photoshoot by guiding the couple into poses and actions that ultimately made their same-day edit video one to remember. Everyone I spoke to from Storylite was so friendly and genuine in their desire to get the best photos/shots for the bride and groom. Storylite Studios' conduct and product has secured them a spot on my "top ten" list of vendors for a perfect event. :)
