Here is a preview to a recent Maui Engagement Photography Session. This sweet couple flew all the way from Michigan to visit Maui. Kirsten was so excited about having me as their Maui Photographer. She even brought along several props! I love props and its so much fun to include them in scenes. We met up on beach in Makena on an early Friday morning. After about an hour photographing them we were all having a lot of fun! We were getting beautiful portraits of them on the beach & added in their cute props. Kirsten really wanted the beautiful Hawaiian greenery & flowers in her pictures. That’s not on the beach but it is on the Hotel grounds. They booked a night at the Hotel Wailea just so I could photograph them there. The background was perfect to finish up their session. They kept me for an additional hour to really capture everything they wanted. A 2 hour session is really perfect for couples-Wedding, Engagement, or Honeymoon. I loved this session! Here’s just a few of my favorites.
If your soon going to be spending your days in Maui, then no doubt your doing your homework. Spending countless hours online researching what to see in Maui is important. That’s a great way to plan your vacation before you come so you dont waste time on Maui. If you love whales, come now! Its an incredible site to see Humpback Whales breaching so close to the shore! Whale season is from Dec 15th-April 15th. If you want your chances to be high to see them, come in Feb-March when they are everywhere!
* Maui Photography -Book a Session with me! I love making people happy and hearing them tell me the same thing, “We are so happy we choose you for our Maui Photography. The pictures are definitely our favorite souvenir from our vacation!”-Robin A. from K.C. MO
* Snorkel – Take a boat to the crater, Molokini off Maui. If you prefer not to ride on a boat the best Snorkeling on Maui is at Honolua Bay, West Maui.
*Zipline -There’s several different companies. My favorite is Skyline. Go to www.zipline.com to check them out.
*Go to a Luau (My favorite Luau is at Grand Wailea its right on the ocean. Theres delicious food & the best fire dancer in the world! Its a fantastic show at Grand Wailea)
What to see in Maui?
*Sunrise at Haleakala crater
*Take a day and drive the Road to Hana. Do not rush this trip! Its not about getting to Hana its about the drive there. Its a rain forest drive full of greenery and waterfalls!
*Hike in Hana – See the gorgeous Maui Waterfalls, bamboo forest, black sand beach, red sand beach, lava tube, eucalyptus trees (also known as rainbow tress) and of course mosquito’s! But dont worry about snakes while hiking! There are no predators on the Island! You may feel like your in a jungle but there are no predators that will harm you. The best kind of hiking!
*Drive around the West Maui Mountains. Also look for the blow hole & Olivine Pools.
Romantic things to do in Maui
*Walk on the Beach at Sunset
* Relax at Maui’s best beaches
* A Spa date at Grand Wailea (Even though they separate Men & Woman, you can still be enjoying the same things at The Grand- Spa Grande, Scrub, Massage, & more! Grand Wailea is an incredible Resort. There’s delicious restaurants such as Humu’s and great pools too.)
*Dinner at Mamas Fish House (My favorite fine dinning Restaurant)
*Grab a bottle of wine and lay out together on the beach at night. Take it all in- the sound of the ocean and watch the stars together.
*Maui Photography – If you are a couple on your honeymoon, anniversary, or just taking a Hawaiian vacation together this is one of the best things you can get for yourself! Long after the tan fades and your back home, you will be missing Maui. Now, you will have a little piece of Maui to take home with you! You can display your gorgeous Maui Pictures of your family all year round! With the beautiful beaches and sunset in your background, they will make your favorite souvenir! You will cherish your Maui Photography! Contact me today, your Maui Family Photographer to see if I have availability while your on vacation!

For all you Brides going to Maui for your Lahaina Wedding, this is for you! There is so much to plan for: the cake, the flowers, the reception, and thats just the start. We want to make it a little easier for you. Let’s talk about the Location and of course, the Maui Photography. Location, location, location. We are all familiar with that slogan in business. For Brides looking online at all the Maui Beach Photos out there it really is all about the Location. Especially if you have not yet visited the Island. I remember trying to figure out how to pronounce all the Hawaiian towns and mispronouncing everyone over the phone! Ha! Let me make the location part much more simple for you. After we chat about your Wedding Vision, we will figure out which Maui Beach is best for you. If your staying in West Maui and having a Lahaina Wedding there is a great beach I will tell you about. If your hotel or condo is in Lahaina or Kaanapali I recommend this beach in Lahaina.
If your staying at a Resort in Kaanapali you can have your Maui Wedding there. However it is against the law to have any Professional Photography on the Beach in Kaanapali. I tell Brides in that case we can start out at the Resort Grounds for Photography and then drive to a beach either North or South.
Now lets move on to your Lahaina Wedding Photographer. You have been searching for hours and hours looking at all kinds of gorgeous Maui Weddings just dreaming of yours! I know this! And its so much fun!! We want you to be excited when you choose your Maui Photographer. These are the keepsakes you will cherish forever! You are looking for a creative Photographer who you feel comfortable with. A Photographer who can capture the most intimate moments between you & your fiance! Today anyone can call them self a Photographer but a true Photographer captures the chemistry of love! That is my passion! To capture that moment when nothing else matters in the world. The moment when time stands still. The feeling of love you have been dreaming about your entire life, that is what I photograph! Here is a romantic Maui moment by your Lahaina Wedding Photographer, Jen.

Polly and Zach contacted me to do a honeymoon photo shoot. They were just recently married in Oklahoma and were very excited to come to Maui for their honeymoon! They were staying at The Grand Wailea, the perfect Resort for Maui Photography. I LOVE this hotel! We started at the Maui Waterfalls at the entrance. They were so in love and it showed! I LOVE photographing couples just recently married. Its so easy to set them up in poses because its all still fresh in their mind from their Wedding. We then went through the hotel photographing at the fountains, gazebo, and walked down to Wailea Beach. It was very important to Polly to capture the beauty of the Island in her Maui pictures. I had so much fun capturing their love on the beach at a Maui sunset. I edited her portraits and she previewed them and absolutely loved them all!! She loved to have her love documented at the Grand Wailea and Wailea Beach. Heres a taste of our photo shoot.
This beautiful couple flew into Maui for their wedding at the Grand Wailea. They had been married for several years but wanted to renew their love for each other in Maui. They gave each other such love at their vow renewal that took place at the Waldorf Astoria Wailea. Their two beautiful children were there for this special occasion. Their Maui Wedding took place under a gazebo with the enchanting music of the harp playing. Then they released two white doves together. Their Wailea Wedding finished with cake and wine. Of all the Maui Wedding Cakes, this one tasted one of the best! (Or so I heard) Their Maui Wedding Cake did look wonderful. After all the Wedding events took place, it was time for their Maui Photography. Heres a few of my favs. Congrats you both! Enjoy your Maui Photography at The Grand Wailea.
Below is the gallery of the great Benton Family at the Grand Wailea. They were so much fun. I’m so happy they love their Maui Photography! While photographing them it helped me to remember to enjoy each moment with the people you love. Its so easy to take your loved ones forgranted, assuming they will always be there. However thats just not the case. My dear family live far away from Maui and I miss just dropping in on then anytime just to chat. Enjoy every moment we have with our loved ones. Love Deep. Love Much. Aloha!
Below is the link for a slide show of a collection of my recent Maui Photography. Each are edited and ready to be placed on professional prints or a beautiful canvas. We started at their hotel at the Maui Westin. They have beautiful waterfalls and lots of palm trees for the perfect Maui family portraits. The hotel is located just north of Lahaina. Westin Maui Resort and Spa is in Kaanapali. The Maui weather here is always just perfect! At sunset we meet up at baby beach Lahaina for more Maui Photography. Enjoy the Maui waterfalls at the beginning of the slide show!
Chad & Caitlyn were such a great laid back in love couple! We met at the beautiful Makena Cove for their Makena Wedding at Sunset. They had a nice group of familly and friends come to see them get married in Maui. As a couple they had visited Maui before and decided to have a simple beach wedding. After the Ceremony, they headed to Mulligans for their Maui Wedding Reception. For any who have never visited Maui, Makena is one of the most gorgeous places! Heres one of my favorite shots from tonights wedding in Makena Hawaii.
