Maui, the land of photographers and more photographers than any other Hawaiian Island. Yes, Maui now has hundreds of photographers all scrambling for a bite and they are lowering their prices to keep afloat and get in on the action. Some of the hotel photographers may stick to their prices seeing and the hotels take a huge 20% cut and only work with photographers that give them money. It is not the case on other islands and only Maui for some reason seems to have this greed. Not just in hotels but for weeding companies and venues all want to take the Maui photographers money for simply referring their services. They also usually only refer safe, simple and traditional photographers that don't usually think outside the box and they usually do as they are told, be there on time, say nothing and do nothing but take the traditional pictures of the bride holding the flowers and they may get very creative and put the flowers on the sand and focus on the flowers while the wedding clients are out of focus in the background, also they may write just Maui'd in the sand and have the clients dip and bend and click.
We often get calls from clients who have been given a list of photographers from the hotels who they bought a wedding package with and they usually are not happy with the choices they are given from the list. They see our work and they can see that our photographers will often get on the floor, climb a tree, get in the water, hang from a balcony, or do just about anything to get the perfect picture that looks a little more original. Maui photographers deal with many different coordinators and these coordinators often don't last in the hotels for more than a year or two. Our team of professional photographers has been photographing on Maui for many years in the most gorgeous locations, so they all know all the secret trails and waterfalls that the traditional wedding companies and hotels don't usually tell you about. I often become perplexed when I see at some hotels they have wedding arches surrounds by a few trees and flowers and you have no idea you are in Hawaii when you see the final results in your pictures. We want to make sure your pictures look like you are in Hawaii, so we organize a Maui photoshoot for you in the paces that are the most spectacular for your memorable Maui photographs.
Sometimes we may have clients who want the traditional style and they want o keep it simple and of course, we can definitely do this for them, but we can mix it up and get more playful and fun if they want to have pictures that are different from the usual routine style you often see. Maui photography locations are among the most spectacular in the thew world and the locations we photograph on are often voted number one choices by Conde Nast and other travel magazines who often do wonderful stories on the destination weddings and honeymoon vacations from magazines all over the world. Maui has the perfect blend of palm trees, rocks, gorgeous white and golden sands with stunning crystal blue waters that all look truly magical in your Maui photography sessions. We suggest. a morning or sunset photoshoot on Maui behind the light is more favorable to your face and the temperature is more pleasant to deal with.
Maui is easy to drive from the south to the west side beach locations for amazing Maui photography and if you are feeling adventurous you can always drive to Hana where we also have Maui photographers that will gladly take you to their favorite beach for spectacular images. We choose our award-winning team photographers very carefully and make sure we all have a certain style that has a look and feel you will truly enjoy capturing in your fun Maui vacation photos.
