Thank you so much for visiting my Maui Wedding Photography galleries. OMG I LOVE what I do so much. Not only do I get to witness some of the most important moments of peoples lives, but also know the importance of the images I am creating & the unbelievable value my images mean to people.

Recently, I was out on a photo shoot with repeat clients that I had already shot their wedding & now I was doing family photos with them. Absolutely the sweetest most loving family with everyone including kids coming up to each other & spontaneously hugging & joking & laughing with each other. I seriously can not script those moments & the pure candidness of those moments is so beautiful. Granddad was especially having fun with all of the grand kids & laughing just as much as any of them.

Later one of the family members came up to me & thanked me for capturing the moments I had. Of course that is my job & I told them it was no problem. She again thanked me & told me that her mom, had past, & the wedding images that I had done, with the entire family together in Maui at the wedding are some of their most cherished memories. They told me that soon after the wedding her cancer had come pretty quick & the happy moments of the wedding were what granddad & the rest of the family looked at every single day on the mantle.

I mean that is powerful when your clients tell you that & it just goes to show why I value what I do so much. Living here in Maui for so many years, (24 years) and be a professional photographer now on Maui for 19 years, I have so many repeat clients that come back year after year & I literately hear people tell me all the time how appreciative they are for what I have done for them.

So no matter if its first time working our working together, or we have worked together in the past, my goal each & every single time I go to work I am going to do everything in my power to NOT ONLY amaze you with gorgeous imagery, BUT a great experience, working hard to capture the candid beautiful moments that show who you are & tell your Maui Wedding story as beautiful as I can. Of course I back all this up with great communication & excellent service.

So you've been planning your Maui vacation for months & months, looking through all the options to make sure you have plenty of time for all the countless opportunities for you and your family! Definitely you should consider doing a Maui family shoot as I have heard this over and over again, that not only the experience of doing a photography session amazing in it self, but the results far exceeded anything they had done in the past!

Those fleeting moments where your child is still tiny disappear so quickly and that is why now is the perfect time to photograph them now. As you know, when you get older the days & weeks and months seem to tick faster & faster and before you know it your little one is a teenager learning to drive and just about out of the house. Incredible how fast they grow up!

Another reason why EVERY time you are altogether as a family you need to recognize it as an important moment is exactly about what I wrote about in another blog post in my wedding section. I had already shot their wedding years before & the same family was back in Maui doing family portraits with me again. Absolutely the sweetest family with everyone laughing & hugging & having the best time creating great candid moments. Midway through the session, one of the family members came up to me & thanked me for the great memories I had captured at the wedding. Of course I thanked them.

She then proceeded to tell me that the images I captured at the wedding were super important as that was the last time the whole family was together before the cancer struck their grandmother & those images were everything to them! My point is, every time you are together as family honor that moment & get some beautiful images as every day is an important day!

So I LOVE GETTING CREATIVE and exploring. Of course I'm open for a beach shoot or maybe at your hotel, either in the morning when the sky is that BLUE=BLUE and OR my preferred time at sunset! But I am super open to adventuring to new spots or maybe YOUR favorite spot to do your Maui Family Vacation Photos. I am totally down for going off the beaten path to find the perfect spot that speaks to you OR if you want I can show you some spots that you had no idea about.

Do you have something special in mind? Perhaps a surprise for a family member? What ever it is I am willing to go the extra mile to capture the candid moments & the beautiful moments that will become the cherished memories that are SO IMPORTANT! Thank you in advance for letting me apart of these memories! LETS CHAT!
