beautiful maui wedding photography

You are getting married in Maui, so you may as well have all the best parts of Hawaii in your wedding photographs.

My ability to create iconic Hawaii wedding photographs makes me a stand out choice in this great big ocean. Yes, I have some bragging rights. I have been published in The Knot, Destination I Do, Inside Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Martha Stewart and many more. But I photograph weddings not for the accolades, but because I have something to express and it comes in bursts of colors and leaking light and to
see it is to feel it: to feel YOUR love and YOUR wedding day.  Your photos will feel like your wedding day — beautiful, emotional and imperfectly perfect.

how to plan elopement, couple or honeymoon hawaii photos

Maui and all of Hawaii is great for elopement, couple or honeymoon photos. When its just the two of you, its easy to be photographed in stunning scenery like cliffs over the ocean, rainforest, waterfall, haleakala or big wide empty beaches.  My favorite is to take a couple on a hike through fields and trees to end up at a tide pool or cliff overlooking the ocean.  Click here to find out more about Maui elopement, couple, and honeymoon photographs.

what is a list of the most scenic maui wedding venues

Maui has some of the most scenic wedding venues ranging from direct oceanfront, to dramatic cliff-side ocean views, to lush old world garden, to sweeping views from up on Haleakala volcano. My favorite direct oceanfront wedding venues are Merrimans Kapalua, Olowalu Plantation House, White Orchid Beach House, and Sugar Beach estate.  Old world charm and lush gardens can be found at the world renown Haiku Mill.  Beautiful views can be found at Steeple House and Maui Tropical Plantation.  Of course the Four Seasons Lanai and Wailea as well as the Ritz Carlton are amazing wedding venues as well. 

how should you choose your maui wedding photographer

The most important thing to look at when choosing a Maui wedding photographer is their wedding images.  Find a Maui photographer whose work is something you love and can picture yourself in.  Look for the emotion and the moments in their wedding photographs that resonate with you. Look to be moved.  You want to have wedding photographs that stand the test of time and you can share with your children and family in years to come.  Trust me. I have over 10 years experience photographing weddings on Maui and have shot huge destination weddings and emotional elopements here.

how do I have a beach wedding on Maui?

What could be better than getting married to the person you love with your bare feet in the sand?  Weddings are allowed on many Maui beaches with the notable exception of Kaanapali beach. The only things you need are an officiant to marry you, a beach permit from the State (super easy to get, your officiant or photographer will get it for you), a marriage license (also easy to get here), and maybe some wedding clothes and flowers and hair/make up artist if you desire.  I can guide you to the best beaches (the ones with the least weddings and most scenery) and my favorite floral designers and wedding vendors. Planning a Maui beach wedding is easy and I can help you all the way.  And if it is just two of you and you want an adventure, there are amazing off beat locations.
