Maui Trash the Dress | Po'olenalena Beach

Maui trash the dress photography at Po'olenalena Beach

loved this maui trash the dress sesh with all of my heart and soul.  this was definitely one of my favorite shoots of the year.  and they were super cute.  and they had a ridiculously beautiful connection.  i'm finally beginning to realize that it's YOU that creates the magic during your session.  the love you share with your loved ones.  laughing.  playing.  smooching.  i honestly can't believe this is my career.  i am so grateful to share these moments with my clients and find new friends along the way.  thank you so much chelsea and dalton for sharing your love with me. :))

here's what chelsea said about her experience working with me :)

"Naomi is amazing!!  She did a trash the dress shoot with me and my husband earlier this month.  She was so fun and easy to work with, we love her!!  Our pictures turned out absolutely beautiful and it was the most fun we had on our honeymoon in Maui.  Thanks girl :))" ~ chelsea

North Shore Maui | Maui Photographer

leslie and eric wanted to do a shoot on the north shore of maui before they left the islands to move back to seattle.  we were originally supposed to shoot in the bamboo forest, but it was pouring rain when we arrived.  so, we decided to pit stop along hana highway and finish off in the cute surf town of paia.  it seems my favorite shoots are the ones where we shoot in multiple locations and don't even have a plan.  adventure is my fave.  

here's what leslie had to say about her experience with me :)

"Naomi is an amazing photographer and overall lovely person. I first had the pleasure of working with Naomi when I was lead wedding coordinator for a busy wedding company on Maui. We worked together on a weekly basis, everything from intimate elopements on the beach to more traditional weddings at premiere venues. Naomi is everything you want in a wedding photographer: incredibly talented, professional, organized and detailed oriented, and confident while still being warm and laid back. Naomi and I were able to deal with unpredictable situations like severe rain/wind without missing a beat. She's extremely adaptable and remains calm when plans need to change. Recently, I chose Naomi to do a couples shoot for my husband and I around the North Shore of Maui. When it was pouring rain at our planned location, we had the best time driving on the road to Hana, pulling over at random spots and ending our shoot in the funky surf town of Paia to take some of my favorite shots. I highly recommend letting go of expectations, embracing spontaneity and trusting Naomi to deliver photos you will love." - leslie

Maui Family Photos at Ironwoods Beach

this family was pure magic.  it was raining when they arrived for their session, and that is where the awesomeness began.  they didn't freak out or try to reschedule.  they said "oh well, let's go for it!"  i immediately knew they were special.  the kids were full of smiles and their parents let them play in the sand and splash in the waves.  i believe that is when the magic begins.  when the parents relax and let their kids be kids.  they went with the flow.  by the end we were all soaking wet, covered in sand, and grinning from ear to ear. :)  thank you sooo much beck family for contacting me to shoot your maui family photos.  i will cherish our time together in the rain.  

are you awesome like this family?  then i would love to connect with you!
