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!

Martha & Russell are no strangers to paradise. Florida natives, this couple decided to travel to Maui to exchange their vows amongst their island ohana. Married on the 24th of February in a backyard ceremony in Makawao, they were surrounded by an intimate group of loved ones. Rose (Martha’s sister-in-law) opened the ceremony with a proper Hawaiian blessing, while a close family friend officiated their wedding. Martha looked radient with her flower crown, hand-made bouquet and white pearls, while the groom Russell wore the traditional maile lei. It was inside a bougainvillea heart, they officially became Mr. & Mrs. We would personally like to thank this wonderful couple and their family for allowing us to be part of their beautiful and intimate ceremony. Congratulations!
