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!

Maui Wedding Photographer | Paia, Hawaii Wedding

Karol and Aaron’s Maui destination wedding took place at the stunning Holy Rosary Church in Paia, Maui. A traditional Catholic wedding was important to Karol and Aaron, and you will see this reflected in the photographs taken during the ceremony. A gorgeous reception at the Maui Tropical Plantation followed. Dinner was served by The Mill House, and I can attest to the fact that it was absolutely delicious! I’ll never forget Karol and Aaron’s kindness in having all of their wedding vendors dine with them at the bride and groom’s table. The tasty meal was a treat on top of a lovely day spent photographing the palpable love between this couple!

One thing is certain on a wedding day— time accelerates for the bride and groom. There is often a lot going on and it can be challenging to focus on getting photos of the newlyweds together. So, I was stoked that Karol and Aaron were interested in a “trash the dress” post-wedding photography session! We met the day after the wedding to take some photos of just the two of them on Maui’s North Shore. Karol and Aaron found this session to be “very romantic and unique…We had so much fun!”

Karol and Aaron live in the San Francisco Bay Area, and they describe themselves as regular people that had a dream to get married on Maui. I’m so happy that this wedding came together perfectly for this sweet couple!

Ho'omaika'i 'ana (Congratulations), Karol and Aaron!
