Maui Engagement Session in Kapalua, Hawaii

These two love birds flew to Hawaii from New Zealand to escape winter and enjoy the warm, tropical weather. Jordan contacted me a few months prior with secret plans to propose to Jess while they were here. He knew he wanted to surprise her with an adventure session to celebrate afterwards while they were visiting Maui. He proposed to Jess while they were on Kauai hiking along the epic Napali Coastline. Of course, Jess said yes!

This shoot was such a fun adventure. We decided to explore Honolua jungle and Ironwoods beach in Kapalua, so they would have a lot of variety for their photos. Two of the most magical spots on Maui that I just had to share with these two wonderful humans.

They had such a fun energy and sweet chemistry. They truly bring out the best in each other; always laughing, smiling and being silly. One of my favorite aspects of being a Maui wedding and elopement photographer is witnessing true love. I feel like a little girl watching a fairytale every time I'm behind the camera with a new couple. I just love it so much. I am so grateful for this career that gives me the opportunity to meet so many amazing humans from all over the world. It was so fun getting to know these two and I cannot wait to travel to New Zealand and visit them! Thank you Jess and Jordan for such a fun evening and huge congrats on your engagement in Hawaii!!

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.

Maui Engagement Session | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

Maui Engagement Session | Hawaii Wedding Photographer

Lilly and Ryan visit Maui every year, so it holds a special place in their heart.  they even bring their sweet pup, named Maui with them so they couldn't imagine their engagement session without her.  living on an island i don't have the opportunity to photograph many puppy dogs, so this was such a treat.  Maui was such a little angel.  she made the shoot so special. :)

towards the end of their session they spontaneously decided to get in the water.  i just love it when my clients have fun and surprise me like that!  it becomes more of an experience and not just a portrait session.  that is my ultimate goal.  i want your session to be a time to cherish each other, have fun, and forget the camera is there.  lilly and ryan embodied that vision.  thank you so much for such a fun evening you two. :)  huge congrats on your engagement!

are you spontaneous?  i would love to meet you!
