Thanks for stopping by! I'm Christie, a San Francisco-based travel photographer with a love for colorful landscapes and adventures of any kind.  Here I share my photography and travel recommendations/tips which I hope inspire you to get out and explore new places.

Some random facts about me:

  • I live in San Francisco but consider Seattle & Oahu home also
  • I travel year round but my favorite trip is my month-long trip to Europe every summer (my team at work jokes that I’m on an academic schedule since I “take every summer off”)
  • When I’m not traveling I boss around a bunch of men for a living. I’ve been practicing my whole life
  • My middle name, Kanani, is Hawaiian. That’s where “@ckanani” comes from – my name, Christie Kanani
  • My favorite places (so far) are Positano, Paris, Interlaken & the Croatian islands (@theyachtweek > everything)
  • I decide where to go mainly by how photogenic it is
  • My sister @stephleilani & I are 2 years 2 months 2 weeks and 1 day apart but people constantly think we are twins
  • I’m German on both sides of my family but can’t speak the language :(
  • I have the coordinates of my grandpa’s house in Hawai’i tattooed on my arm. He's my fav
  • If I could go anywhere in the world right now it would be Greece
