When our couples first contact us, they usually tell us about the beauty of the Maui wedding photography on our website. We love that because we are also professional photographers and we love what we do. A few things about professional photography should be discussed.
Some brides are bringing "a friend who's a photographer". That's great. You should have the friend photograph the other friends and family while the day unfolds to get those background shots that are so much fun. Leave the wedding ceremony and formal portraits/sunset session to the professionals who live and work on Maui and know how to deal with all the challenges an outdoor shoot in Maui creates. We have a team that works with off camera lighting, reflectors and diffusers, to create a magazine look to the imagery. We know how the timing goes and won't miss the sunset, which here by the equator happens real fast. We use our in house photographer for all our weddings. He works 3 to 5 weddings a week, continuously honing his craft and creating killer images for our happy couples.
