Connie + Patrick's South Shore, Maui Elopement Photography

Connie and Patrick are a lovely couple that live in San Francisco, and they decided to elope on Maui. This couple and their elopement stand out to me as being incredibly elegant. Connie’s dress was STUNNING, and Patrick was dressed quite dapper. More important than their wedding clothes, however, Connie and Patrick clearly share a deep love for each other, and their excitement for their future together shines through in these images.

This ceremony took place at Makena Cove (aka Secret’s Beach, aka Paako Cove). During the summer months, Maui sometimes has swells that cause large waves on the South Shore. Makena Cove is quite a small beach, although its beauty is apparent in its popularity for weddings. During Connie and Patrick’s elopement, there was little beach left due to the swell and high tide. We were able to find a spot among the lava rocks for the ceremony, and then we moved to a nearby beach for the portrait session following the ceremony.

Ho'omaika'i 'ana (Congratulations), Connie and Patrick! It was a pleasure to be your Maui elopement photographer! I hope that you enjoyed the remainder of your stay on Maui. Aloha!

Amanda + Austin's South Maui Beach Elopement Photography

Amanda and Austin traveled from their home in Texas to Maui for their beach elopement. The couple exchanged touching vows on Makena Cove Beach during an overcast, yet warm March afternoon. As a Maui wedding photographer, I dream about overcast days such as this! Cloud cover makes for ideal lighting conditions, as opposed to the bright, harsh sun that so often graces the South Shore of Maui.

Amanda and Austin were a sweet, laid-back couple, and they were up for an adventure. Their elopement was scheduled a bit earlier in the afternoon, so we had some time to move to a different location for portraits after their ceremony was finished. We drove to the southernmost part of the island, La Perouse Bay, and went for a short hike to get the stunning backdrop of Mount Haleakala, as well as unique lava formations.

In addition to celebrating their marriage, Amanda and Austin are also expecting their first child! They asked me to get a few maternity photos for them to share with their loved ones.

It was an honor to be your Maui elopement photographer, Amanda and Austin! Ho'omaika'i 'ana (Congratulations) on your marriage, and your pregnancy!

Maui Couples Photographer | Anniversary Photos in Wailea-Makena, Maui, HI

Shahanna and Jason recently visited Maui to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.  They are the sweetest couple from Massachusetts and they have 9 children together.  The love between them is so apparent!  

Unbeknownst to Shahanna, Jason reached out prior to our sunset session to tell me that he was going to surprise her with a new wedding ring (a gorgeous piece from Ireland)!  I was so honored to capture this special moment for Shahanna and Jason, and I'm glad that they were able to share the moment with their children and family through the photos.  

Shahanna and Jason were game to get in the ocean for a few fun shots toward the end of the session.  This made my heart SO happy.  I haven't been getting nearly enough use out of my water housing (hint, hint)!  

Congrats on your 20th anniversary, Shahanna and Jason!  I hope that you had an amazing time visiting Maui!
