This was the moment, months in planning and back and forth with someone thousands of miles away to make this very second happen. As I backed into position he dropped to his knee.
Sunrise on Maui is the most under appreciated time of day. I know you’re on vacation but with the time change it’s not that hard! The beaches are empty, the temperature is cool, the light is soft and pastel.
Every once in a while something happens that is just amazing. This shoot was one of those things. First check out this mom to be (now happy mother), she is gorgeous! They wanted a variety of what Maui has to offer. We started with a sunrise at Po’olenalena with gave us great light! Then for my second highlight, we decided on Ironwoods (Boom Shakalaka!) for sunset. Which is an EPIC location in west Maui. So I was flying high on this whole shoot.
These guys came from Texas and spent a week on Kauai before coming to Maui. That's the best way to do it! You're making the trip make it worth it. Each Island has so much to offer and they're all very different! Each is special in it's own way. Maui of course is the best, but each will leave you with memories you won't soon forget.
Too often us dudes get a bad rap for not being romantic enough or remember special dates and so for, this is not the case with Alex. He emailed me month in advance wanting to setup a special day for his amazing girlfriend. He didn't want a simple beach session he wanted more! We worked out a “Maui Adventure Shoot” that would take us up 'Iao Valley for some exploration and then back to a quiet beach for sunset where he would drop to his knee and ask for her hand.
I shoot a lot of small elopements on the beach. They are great and can be very emotional. But when you add family and friends things get fun. It's not fun to be crazy on your own, so bring your friends and family along for the ride and add craziness to the wedding! Of course it will be a day to remember, but make it a day you'll never forget!
Hannah and Justin are from the east coast and we visiting friends on Maui. They were recently engaged and wanted some photos to show off their budding love. They were naturals and too easy to work with, plus Justin had a secret weapon…. blue steel. It's not wonder Hannah fell for him, when his model face shows up even the guys are swooning
