Best Maui Wedding Photography
Thank you so much for taking a look at my Best Maui Wedding Photography Galleries. Being a passionate Maui Photographer for over two decades I have been refining my style & learning as much as I can for all these years. The beginning of my photography career started when I was a banquet worker in three prominent Maui luxury hotels. The most important thing you learn working in a FIVE STAR Resort is to go above & beyond in delivering an exceptional service. This starts with being exceptionally prepared for what ever task is at hand, anticipating the clients needs (Even before the client knows he/she needs something), having a fantastic attitude & creating an experience that is unmatched. I have taken this taken this “Knowledge” & carried it directly to my photography career! By implementing these practices for more then two decades, I have honed in on making the experience as important as the quality of the imagery! And it’s just not the day of experience! It’s also the great communication before the event & following the plan of the day set by the coordinator. Sometimes needing to adjust as necessary in the heat of the moment due to weather or other unseen circumstances. Most often though it has something to do with weather and that is where being prepared is everything with umbrellas & rain protection for my clients/gear which I always carry with me.
Having been in the hospitality industry for all these years I have found I absolutely LOVE connecting with my clients like they are long lost friends, and it happens all the time with my easy going friendly manner. Especially with larger weddings, where we are connecting on the phone & social media way before the wedding. I find you can really cultivate a friendship long before the big day & then when it finally happens it seems more like a reunion of friends! I LOVE WHEN THAT HAPPENS! Before the pandemic it happened with Bianca & Jordan whose wedding I shot at Sugar Beach Events & when we met we were hugging and we were laughing uncontrollably with in five minutes. Seriously thehttps://www.sugarbeacheventshawaii.com/ Best!
Of course the day of the event has it’s structure created by the coordinator & meeting this timeline is so important for all of the vendors involved. This is where experience comes in & knowing of the timing of sunset & getting everything done on time, BUT also being able to create magic in a short amount of time with out creating pressure on the clients. This is a learned skill that I have been refining for years! (If you have questions about the timeline of your event form a pro photographers perspective please call me & lets chat!) From years of experience I have shot list of must have images in my head that I will definitely work on capturing, but I am always open for your shot list of must haves. After all, this is your wedding & your vision of your wedding is what you are hiring me to capturing! This is where that good communication comes into play so we are both on the same page & creating imagery that is meaningful & poignant! I shoot in a style where sometimes I try to be an observer capturing unseen moments & other times helping to direct as need to set shots ups. In addition I shoot natural light as much as the conditions at that moment dictate or using off camera lighting to help modify harsher lighting as needed. Being able to quickly set up & create imagery in both styles makes me versatile & quick to get imporatant shots & move on to the next.
