Jennifer and Jesse live in Idaho, and they planned their elopement on Maui due to their love for the island. Their elopement was one of the most unique that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing! Most elopement ceremonies are 15-20 minutes, while their ceremony was only a few short minutes (hence why you won’t see as many photos of the ceremony as in others that I’ve photographed). The officiant was a friend of the couple. Jennifer and Jesse had some close family members and a few friends in attendance.
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.
Stephanie and Randall planned their Maui elopement from their home in California. They had eight family members in attendance for their lovely ceremony. During their ceremony, the first large south swell of the season was occurring, which meant that there wasn’t as much white sand beach available at Makena Cove. Although Makena Cove is a stunning location, and it’s easy to understand it’s popularity for elopements on Maui, when swells come from the south during the summer months, the larger waves can take the beach right out.
Although I’m a Maui-based wedding photographer, I love traveling! I was so honored when Ashley and Tucker asked me to shoot their wedding in Northern California. Ashley and Tucker’s love story began in 2011 when they met through a dating app. As you will see clearly reflected in their wedding images, this couple can be described as fun, joyous, and non-traditional.
