Lifestyle Wailea Maui Family Photos
It was a pleasure photographing sweet moments for this sweet family on the beach at Four Seasons Wailea, Maui!
Stunning White Orchid Beach House Wedding
It was wonderful to photograph Misa and Josh’s White Orchid Beach House Wedding. This beachfront property in Makena Maui is breathtaking! The combination of a secluded beach, lava rocks and a beautiful Maui sunset is the perfect recipe for wedding photos! The couple enjoyed celebrating their wedding day with close friends and family and celebrated into the evening with dinner and dancing under the stars. Congrats to this lovely couple!
Maui Family Photography
I loved this sweet Kihei Maui Family Photography Session. As a Maui Family Photographer, I feel lucky to have such beautiful scenery and happy people enjoying their Maui vacation together. I like to capture a mix of canids, portraits and photos where viewers can feel a sense of place. The green lawn, palm trees and beautiful beach on this property made for naturally beautiful backdrops!
Stunning Westin Kaanapali Maui Wedding
Kaya and Clint had their dream day — a beautiful Westin Kaanapali Maui Wedding! It was a pleasure to be their photographer. The stunning couple was surrounded by family and friends and had a lovely wedding ceremony on the Westin’s lawn overlooking Kaanapali Beach. The resort grounds offer a nice variety for tropical Maui wedding photos including the oceanfront lawn, greenery, and beautiful waterfalls. They celebrated into the evening, enjoying a lovely dinner and dancing.
Stylish Four Seasons Wailea Maui Wedding
Joanna and Ed were such a fun couple who were married at the Four Seasons Wailea Maui. They had a great sense of style and had a beautiful setup created for their special day. Their son was adorable and I loved capturing this sweet family. Congratulations to the newlyweds! Here are some of my favorites from the day.
I was excited when Denise had contacted me about doing a lifestyle photoshoot for her family while they were visiting Lahaina Maui. Denise is a talented photographer and it’s always an honor to work with photographers. The family was celebrating her oldest daughter’s 21st birthday and they thought it would be nice to capture the occasion. The light and colors were radiant that evening. Check out some of my favorite photos from our session below. Enjoy!
Malia has been a great friend of mine since HighSchool so it has been such an honor to photographer her family photos over the years! Her children are adorable and I couldn’t be happier for her! We love going out to Hana and visiting with them and we really enjoy the beauty, peacefulness and abundant nature that Hana has to offer. I hope to make it out there again soon.
I absolutely loved photographing Thomas and Kandice’s wedding at her mother’s house in Upcountry Maui. It was pouring rain before the ceremony but everyone remained calm and it ended up clearing for the wedding and turning out to be the most beautiful afternoon. Kandice has been a great friend of mine since middle school so it was really special for me to capture her special day. I teared up a few times during the day as I could see how much love these two have for one another and for their daughter. Congratulations to this very lovely family! I am so happy for you and excited to see your future together.

I had a great time photographing this lovely family during their vacation on Maui! Morning sessions can be great as they provide a variety of colors and lighting. I love the lighting mixture of backlight, shade, and direct sun to provide both soft and dramatic photos. The blues of the water and sky were gorgeous and the children loved running around on the beach. It’s wonderful when families have so much fun on their portrait sessions and I feel like their relaxed mood really shines through in the photos. Enjoy some of my favorites.
