Sabrina and Stephen were a treat to photograph. It was quite the blustery day, but these two had no fear and the wind just added a wild element to their maui engagement session. We like wild. We like free, and we like lovers who let loose in front of our lenses like these two did. We hiked through bushes and walked along maui sea cliffs (sometimes a little too close for comfort) to capture the love that these two shared for one another.
This romantic, rustic Kukahiko Estate Maui wedding was what wedding dreams are made of! The sweetest bride and groom, surrounded by their closest family and friends, at an unbelievably stunning oceanfront estate on the gorgeous shores of Maui!
The Reed’s. We Love Them. They have trusted us to capture their cherished family memories year after year and we can’t say thank you enough. We spent the afternoon in Kapalua, Maui where we were blessed with gorgeous afternoon light. The mini-Reeds, Max & Maddie were so excited about having their photos taken which always makes for a great family portrait session.
Janelle & Bryan – Hurry up and make number three so we can do it again!
Lots of love!
Alexa and Sal’s journey to the altar has all the elements of a fantastic love story. The bride is a classically trained ballet dancer and studied social worker with an altruistic heart. The groom is a well-read entrepreneur, skilled hunter and great outdoorsman. Both were raised on the remote island of Maui on a healthy diet of sea, sand, and sunshine. If Sal and Alexa were viewed as celestial objects you would see them originally as just high school acquaintances, two separate gravitationally bound structures associated with a common position in space. They’d orbit around Maui along paths that would occasionally bring them within range, while other times their educations and travels would spiral them continents apart. However, as fate would have it, the love of their families, and their deep roots in the islands would ultimately pull them both homeward again. Once back on Maui they were reintroduced by their mutual friend Mark Mayeda, who would later officiate their wedding. Eventually these heavenly bodies would unite in such a way that left all of us seeing fireworks.
Alexa and Sal were married on a perfect September day along the slopes of Haleakala. The intimate villa overlooking an olive farm provided a picturesque venue for the marriage of his Italian heritage, with her rustic upcountry charm. The stylish details, handcrafted cocktails and gourmet food where a reflection of the couple’s casual elegance and excellent taste. The love and commitment that took place between Alexa and Sal on their wedding day was absolutely palpable. Everyone in attendance was fortunate enough to have witnessed the perfect culmination of their love story.
