"I have a friend who will be doing the photography..."
We hear this every once in a while when folks contact us to book a professionally produced Maui wedding package. It's always great to get the photography of your once in a lifetime event for free, or is it? There are many challenges to shooting a Maui wedding. Timing is the first that comes to mind. When the sun starts to drop out here by the equator it goes fast. A professional, who has been shooting Maui sunset weddings for decades, knows how to squeeze every second out of that short time frame. A seasoned professional will bring an assistant, lights, diffusers and reflectors, and know how to us them and when. Placement of the couple and minister during the ceremony, formal portraits, staged shots of the couple at sunset, etc. A 6 hour wedding shoot is very demanding and your photographer should know how much work it is. Then there's the issue of your friend wanting to enjoy themselves during the festivities.
My suggestion to the folks who want to have their friend shoot the wedding: Hire a professional Maui wedding photographer for the ceremony, formals and sunset shots. Let your friend do the reception. They can also take shots of the crowd during the wedding, these are shots that are well worth having.

Eye contact. That's our tip for couples today. Nothing is more important than eye contact for those memorable wedding photos. Most of our Maui Wedding ceremonies last about 15 minutes; short and sweet. 15 or 20 minutes for your photographer to capture something that happens once in your lifetime. Not to put too much pressure on the wedding couple, but the beauty of your Maui wedding images depend not only on the professionalism of your photographer, but also by your facial expressions, relaxed attitude and eye contact with each other and the camera. During the ceremony, your attention should be on the person you are marrying. Looking into each others eyes during the vows, lei ceremony and ring exchange not only creates incredible images but also bonds the two of you during what is a very intimate moment.
