"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.
Sabrina and Jesus enjoyed a beautiful late afternoon Maui wedding ceremony at Poolenalena beach in Makena with Marry Me Maui Wedding Plannes. Our good friend Charles Nahale officiated the event and played some chicken skin music on his ukulele. Poolenalena (Chang's beach) is a huge swath of sand and ocean in spectacular Makena, the "south side" of Maui. Some of the best wedding beaches in Maui are located here and we know them all! From White Rock, and Paipu, to Makena Cove, Marry Me Maui has performed hundreds of weddings at all of them. Some of these beaches are small and intimate, best for just the couple and maybe 3 guests and some are very large and wide with plenty of room for up to 30 people. As always, parking on Maui's pristine beaches is limited so please carpool!
Sabrina and Jesus had almost the entire beach to themselves on this cool and breezy Wednesday afternoon. We want to thank them for a beautiful afternoon doing what we love to do!
It's been a few years. It's cold and gray outside and time to heat things up with your significant other. So you're thinking: another lobster dinner at the local 2 star restaurant? Kick up your heels at that live music venue you haven't been to since your college days? Maybe a couples massage at that new spa you heard about on a commercial break during the last football game you watched? Nah, we have a better idea: Spice it up with a vow renewal on a Maui beach! And we have 3 reasons why you should hire a professional Maui Wedding Planner to arrange all the details for you.
Reason #1: We have the beaches! That's right, we know where the best spots are to get your vow on. Sure, you are staying at a condo that advertises "oceanfront" but is there a beach? Maybe not! Could be just a small little bit of sand that you have to share with the rest of the winter refugees from your condo. Contact your professional Maui wedding planner and ask them where to go to…
