These two are just about the sweetest couple you could ever meet! We first photographed them at our pre-wedding photo session on Maui’s youngest lava flow (La Perouse); It was a beautiful spring day with wildflowers blooming out of the black lava rock and butterflies buzzing about. The sunset was vibrant and colorful, and small surf made it possible to enter the water and capture an absolutely gorgeous portrait with a sky-meets-sea backdrop.
A couple days later we photographed their wedding at Wailea’s Marriott Beach Resort. It was a perfect day for a beach wedding and the resort property provided us with stunning settings for portraiture, details and getting ready photographs. Their theme was “Birds of Paradise” (Shannon’s favorite flower), all the floral arrangements were created by Maui’s top florist, Dellables. The entire day was magic… full of beauty and love – A special day for a special couple. Congratulations to Shannon and Robert!

Andrea and Adam got engaged just two days before this session; They were riding bicycles down Maui’s largest mountain, Haleakala, when Adam popped the question and Andrea said, “Yes!”. It was a last minute booking, and we were so excited to have the opportunity to create a collection of images celebrating their new engagement. We met these two at a secret beach along the Makena shoreline and enjoyed an incredible Maui sunset. The photos came out gorgeous and we just had to share a preview 🙂 Congratulations to Andrea and Adam!

We’re looking forward to Shannon & Robert’s wedding this weekend 🙂 They’re an incredibly sweet couple and we are so excited to be documenting this special time in their lives (Congratulations you two!). We met at La Perouse (Maui) and enjoyed a fun hour-long eSession among the black lava and colorful sunset. Here are a few of our favorite images from our time together…
You couldn’t meet a sweeter couple than this bride and groom – their love for one another is absolutely radiant. And so it was fitting that they would be married on such a warm and beautiful afternoon at Maui’s Makena Beach Resort. The spectacular scene was coordinated by The Perfect Wedding: Chi and Alex exchanged rings and I do’s between their guests and the the waters of the Alalakeiki Channel, incredible flower arrangements (created by Dellables) adorned the aisle and alter, and an acoustic ukulele player strummed serene songs. We felt so honored to be part of this special day. In addition to the wedding photography, we have included photographs from a pre-wedding engagement session and bride+groom sunset session. Enjoy and please feel free to leave your comments below ~ Mahalo.
Congratulations to Chi and Alex! We wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Aloha nui loa.

Alexandra (Xandra) was visiting Maui for her twin sister’s wedding when she was surprised with a proposal of her own. Stef, her sweetheart, had planned a romantic day-trip to Maui’s remote jungle town of Hana. It was here that he popped the question, and she said ‘yes’! We met up with this awesome couple a few days later to create a collection of photographs celebrating this special time in their lives. With so many images to choose from, here are a few of our favorites.

This week we met Dani and Chris from Alberta, Canada for a fun engagement session on Maui’s south shore. The light was amazing for photos and we were blessed with a beautiful sunset to conclude our session. Now, we’re looking forward to photographing Dani and Chris’s wedding this Thursday in Kihei 🙂 More coming soon…
We met up with Natalie and David a few days before their Maui wedding to talk story, make photographs and watch a beautiful sunset. The couple looked amazing dressed in all white against the black lava rock landscape and shoreline. Natalie also brought along a white parasol, a wedding gift from her family in Thailand that we used in a few of her portraits.
We’re so happy to have met this wonderful couple and thrilled to be photographing their wedding day tomorrow. We look forward to all the memories and photographs to come! For now, here are a few of our favorite shots from the beach side engagement session with our (soon-to-be) bride and groom. Aloha and Congratulations to Natalie & David.

We met up with Jenny and Riley on a beautiful evening at The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua. Both their families were present and dressed in fuchsias, reds and oranges. This was a momentous occasion in their lives, not only for Riley and Jenny who were recently engaged, but for the whole family; This was the first time the two families had ever met!
After photographing a few group shots in front of the holiday decorated lobby and Christmas tree, we headed down to the sea cliffs for our family portrait session. The Maui sunset was warm and casting a perfect light for our portraits. The entire group of 11 was wonderful, gracious and so fun to photograph. The best part was seeing the newly engaged couple together; there is so much love and happiness radiating off of them!
This was such a fun shoot and we send our enthusiastic congratulations to Riley, Jenny and the whole gang! Thank you for inviting us be part of this special time in your lives. May your marriage be blessed! Aloha.
