Aloha, Lito and Heather were recently on Maui to seal their vows. They had a great turn out of family and guests that flew out from both California and Oahu. We had an awesome afternoon in Napili for their wedding and afterwards they all headed over to Old Lahaina Luau for their celebration. Below are just a few images of the beautiful setting they had that day.
Aloha, Matt & Dalila were recently on Maui to both Celebrate their recent Engagement as well as get some creative & fun pictures for their "Save This Date" announcement. We went to one of my favorite beaches where the weather was perfect that night. As they were new to what a photo session involved I made suggestions and helped them choreograph both playful and loving interactions on the beach. [...]
Aloha, I recently took the time to further expand my photographic ideas plus techniques, and made the trek back to Atlanta Georgia for the 2016 Imaging USA PPA Convention. First I must say it was cold! and boy was I not prepared for the cold (my weather app said would be in the 60"s). I had brought cloth accordingly, and unfortunately it hovered around 40 the whole time. Lucky, all [...]
Aloha, Back in the day of using Hasseblads to photograph weddings, portraits, and all I use to use a "graduated filter" to pull my skies down to make them look dramatic.

Aloha, First off, I love it that Juan took out a Personal Ad in our local Maui News for Lindsey. Ladies, you have to like that. Maui weather is generally very cooperative with wedding events. On this day Mother Nature had other ideas and threw us all a curve. This is one of two events I had that day, and I must say you really never know what the [...]
Aloha and Yes it's another beautiful day in Paradise, Weddings on Maui are usually held on a beach or a resort grounds at what is considered the best times of day: Early morning or Sunset. Sometimes though, in order to pack in as much fun as possible to there day (say maybe a Luau later), an event is set for 3-4 pm in the afternoon. Yes, it can be hot [...]
Aloha, I love the small intimate weddings that pull out all the stops. We had a beautiful day to celebrate Martin and Cynthia's Maui wedding nuptials. The Westin Maui did a fantastic spread with awesome flowers, table decorations, and a decked out tent to die for. The beach side location had music softly drifting thru the air, and the ocean was a magnificent shade of blue. We ended up doing [...]
Aloha from Maui, Recently the Pohl family visited Maui from their southern California home. Wendy knew this vacation would be a perfect time to update all their family pictures. We all met at Kapalua Bay for a sunset session and Mother Nature was an awesome participant. We had beautiful soft light in the beginning and a spectacular sunset for the end of our session. Below are a few of the [...]
