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!
What to do on Maui ?
* 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!
-Jen- Lahaina Wedding Photographer
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.
Heres a slide show 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!
Here is 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 begining of the slide show!
I was so excited when Tracey contacted me to capture Maui Beach Pictures of her family. They live on Oahu and were flying over and staying at The Grand Wailea. I absolutely love that Hotel! Its my favorite hotel in Wailea. Really The Grand Wailea Maui is my favorite hotel on Island. So we set up their Photo Shoot at the Grande Wailea. As soon as I met the Benton family, I knew I would love them! They are a great family with terrific kids! So we started at the Maui Waterfalls for their Maui Photography. And worked our way down to Wailea Beach. They were so much fun! I love the to see families who truely appreciate each other. Heres their beautiful Maui Photography. Fyi- If your looking for things to in Maui contact me, your Maui Family Photographer.

The Westin in Maui is a lovely hotel with several Maui Waterfalls. Its a great kid friendly hotel. If your looking for a must do in Maui, you have come to the right place! When you have left the Island you will feel Maui pulling you back! Theres no other place in the world like it. If you take advantage of having Maui Photography while on vacation, you will cherish it! Its like taking a piece of Maui back with you! Long after the sun tan fades your Maui Family Photographer will have provided you with memories to last a lifetime! Heres a few from the sweet Lim family! Enjoy these from your Maui family Photographer.
Mark & Zeah wanted some Maui Family Portraits with their beautiful daughter Abigail. It was a good thing their friend, is a Maui Family Photographer. I was happy when they called to book a session. We met up an early morning to take beach pictures. For all those families out there with young kids, morning sessions are best. They are more cooperative and awake in the morning. We met at a beautiful beach in Makena, South Maui. The beach was perfect with no one on it. Its so important to know what beach location to go to for lighting & without crowds. For all those searching for things to do in Maui with kids, get your family Maui beach photos. Enjoy these family Maui photos.
Maui Family Portraits in Lahaina. Of all the things to do in Maui, having Maui Portraits taken is a must do. The perfect souvenir to any Maui Vacation! Book yours and take back home with you a little bit of Maui!
It’s my passion photographing couples in love on Maui. Matt & Irene were so in love! They came for their Maui Wedding Reception. Before the Reception at David Paul’s in Lahaina, they wanted some Maui Photographs taken. Here is one of my favorite Maui Photos!

Maui Wedding Location – Kihei Condos
All my friends know I love surprises-being surprised & surprising others. So I loved it when Geraldine called me and wanted to surprise her husband Alberto for their 1 year anniversary! She wanted to have a Maui Photographer capture their love. What a great gift! At sunset we drove to Makenas Secret Beach. This is a very special place for them. Their Wedding on Maui was here a year before. So it brought back beautiful memories of their Maui Wedding. Here is one of my favorite shots @ sunset.
I just entered a Silhouette contest @ www.rocktheshotforum.com
I visited family in Missouri just as spring arrived and it was a perfect time for photographs. The flowers were blooming and the spring colors were out. My sister Jessica needed a portrait session of her youngest daughter, Adalyn. It was a good thing her sister, a Maui Photographer was in town. I had fun chasing my little 3 year old niece around trying to get some good shots. We went to Neosho’s Big Spring Park and had some fun! These are a few of my favorites. Be prepared for some heart melting! Enjoy!
FYI- I do visit Southwest Missouri a couple times a year. Let me know if you have a special event happening your life, I may just be there!
