On a gorgeous late May afternoon, Angel and James were married during an elegant beach elopement ceremony on Ironwoods Beach (Oneloa), Maui. Angel and James have been together for 7 years, and earlier this year, they decided that an elopement on Maui was the perfect way for them to wed. The couple is from Pennsylvania, and like many who elope on Maui, they had never visited the island before.

I had a great time getting to know this sweet, beautiful couple! They had tried surfing for the first time earlier in the week, and they were looking forward to going again. I offered my tips for the best beginner surf spots on Maui…I hope that they ended up being stoked on the surf :)

It was an honor to be your Maui elopement photographer, Angel and James! Ho'omaika'i 'ana (Congratulations)!
