Claire and Sean's Intimate Maui Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House


Claire and Sean wanted to have an intimate Maui wedding with their family and close friends. They’re fellow Oregonians, so we immediately connected. If you’ve ever lived in Oregon then you know the special bond we all have. :)

Olowalu Plantation House is one of my favorite wedding venues on Maui and it’s perfect for small, intimate weddings. I love the old, antique house and the endless number of backdrops for photos. It’s private and right on the ocean, so basically perfect for a wedding in Hawaii!

One of my favorite moments of the day was when the bride was pooped on by a bird before the ceremony. We were all cracking up and dying laughing. :) I made sure to get a photo. Scroll down to see haha. It’s good luck on your wedding day right? I also loved that they chose a non traditional wedding cake…a donut! Was such a fun idea and they had several varieties from Donut Dynamite to share with their guests. Their ingredients are locally sourced from our beautiful island on Maui.

Huge thanks to Makena Weddings for a lovely evening!!

Romantic Maui Beach Wedding | Po'olenalena Beach, Wailea

Such a sweet evening with these two lovebirds for their romantic Maui Beach Wedding at Po'olenalena Beach in Wailea.  Lovely light, a deserted beach (which rarely happens), and a happy couple in love.  What more could a wedding photographer ask for?  Pure bliss.

There's something so special about Hawaii elopements.  Just the two of you with the sea as your backdrop and the sound of the ocean waves splashing against the seashore.  Romantic central, yo.  I'm so honored to be part of such a special ceremony in people's lives.  Thank you so much for including me on your Maui wedding day, Kate and Dan! :)

Maui Wedding Photographer . Elise + Paul . Part II

Elise and Paul's ceremony at Po'olenalena Beach was perfecto.  The beach was deserted, they were full of smiles, and they were blessed with a beautiful Maui sunset.  Joe's genuine ceremony was heartfelt and Marvin's guitar strummin' set the tone for a lovely evening.  

Their close friends were there to enjoy and help capture the special day.  One of my favorite photos is them making sure to get the perfect shot resting the GoPro on her head.  Sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do to get the shot!  I loved it!  

BIG congrats to Elise and Paul!  May you have a lifetime of happiness together!  Aloha!!! :)
