Van and Bea's Honeymoon Adventure Session in Kapalua, Hawaii

Van and Bea were married in Philadelphia and flew to Maui for their honeymoon earlier this year. They decided to book a honeymoon adventure session in Kapalua with me to celebrate! They brought their wedding clothes with them, so they would have a large variety of wedding photos. City vibes from their wedding day and natural tropical vibes from their honeymoon. I loved that idea!

My good friend Barbara photographed their wedding and she referred me to this awesome couple when they mentioned they were coming to Maui. Barbara is a super talented photographer based on the east coast. We met at the Forest and Falls workshop a couple years ago and have stayed in touch over the years. One of my favorite aspects of attending workshops is meeting other talented creatives. Definitely check her out if you’re in need of a wedding photographer in Maryland or on the east coast!

We decided to explore Honolua jungle and Ironwoods Beach on the west side of Maui near Kapalua. The jungle there is like a fairytale wonderland and Ironwoods Beach is such an epic spot for cliffside photos at sunset. These two locations are perfect for Maui adventure sessions and creates a nice variety for my adventurous clients. Congrats you two! Hope to see you again next time your visiting Maui!

Rock Climbing Adventure Wedding in Truckee, California

Meghan and John contacted me last year to photograph their wedding on Lake Mary near Truckee, California. When they told me they wanted to incorporate their passion for rock climbing into their couple's photos I knew it was going to be an epic experience and that we were destined to work together. This would definitely be the most adventurous adventure wedding I've ever photographed! I was stoked. I'm not a rock climber but I've always dreamed of trying and the spot they had picked out near Sugar Bowl resort was breathtaking.

Before the shoot I was filled with nervous excitement. My hands were clammy and my heart was thumping. When I stood on the edge of the cliff and they told me to lean back I was a lil nervous, but had to trust and have faith that all would be okay. Huge shout out to Andy Anders for his help and expertise, and Ali for being with me every step of the climb; they definitely helped me capture the adventurous bride and groom in their full glory. I finally leaned into it and immediately felt relaxed and inspired by the views of Donner Lake. For experienced climbers this was an easy climb but for me it was a lifetime accomplishment, and to combine it with my photography career was indescribable. This experience inspired me so much, I took my first rock climbing lesson in Yosemite National Park a few weeks later! I was there for an engagement adventure session, so it was the perfect opportunity to learn how to climb in one of the most amazing climbing destinations in the world.

Sending a huge thanks to the crew that made this shoot possible. It was quite the production and wouldn’t have been the same without the team there to help. You guys made it SO much fun and super special for Meghan and John. I’m beyond grateful to all of you for such an incredible experience.

If you're looking for an adventurous wedding or elopement photographer that will hang on the edge of a cliff to get the shot, I'm yo girl. :)

Maui Beach Wedding at Ironwoods Beach | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

maui beach wedding at ironwoods beach by maui wedding photographer naomi levit

Remy and Brennan originally planned a Maui adventure elopement for their special day.  Buuut, after telling family they were heading to Hawaii everyone wanted to be a part of the celebration!  So, they decided to have a simple Maui beach wedding with their immediate family.  Remy's grandparents even flew all the way to the Hawaiian islands for their wedding day.  They were all in tears after the ceremony and it felt really special that they were able to make it.  Of course I teared up too cuz I'm a total sap!  

Peter Dagupion officiated the ceremony and brought such a happy vibe.  He has such a genuine personality and definitely brings the aloha spirit.  It makes me happy just being in his presence. :)  Love and Beauty Maui did Remy's hair and makeup and gave her a nice, natural look.  Was perfect for her.  Remy's mother created her beautiful bouquet.  I was super impressed!

After we finished their wedding photos at Ironwoods Beach they headed back to their condo for a lovely dinner with family.  They decided to have a local chef prepare dinner for them so they could continue the laid back, intimate vibe.  Private Maui Chef prepared an amazing dinner with fresh, local ingredients.  Their menu sounds sooo good.  I've considered having them prepare a meal for me and hubby just for the hell of it!  Highly recommend them if you're looking for a private chef on Maui.
