The 7 Best Wedding Photographers on Maui
Maui is the epitome of romance for most, so it’s no wonder so many people tie the knot here! If you are looking for a Maui wedding photographer to help you document the day you marry your best friend, let this list help you check one thing off your to-do’s.
1. Melia Lucida
Melia Lucida has a timeless documentary style perfectly suited to her work as a Maui wedding photographer. She effortlessly combines straightforward photojournalism to capture the emotional highlights of every wedding day with her artistic photographs that are as much about the feeling of the day as they are the event itself. She endeavors to provide each of her couples with personal collections that allow them to relive the day whenever they look at the photos saying, “I do not subscribe to one style or palette but instead take inspiration from my clients first and foremost and the mood and aesthetic of the day and place, aiming for elegant authenticity. I hope that as you browse my portfolios, you will be able to not only appreciate the use of light and composition but also how good it felt like to be there.”
Kassidy (Kass) Hardgrove is one of our favorite Maui wedding photographers for her creativity — a ‘trash the dress’ session with her looks particularly fun as she knows some really cool places for a photogenic adventure! Her style is all about authenticity, saying, “I am NOT about super “posed” pictures that make you feel awkward or telling you to smile just to fake it for the photo. I am about creating an awesome/fun experience that tells your story.” Her philosophy shows in the beauty of her work — intimate portraits of her couples show the connection she creates with them.
Angie is all about making sure your wedding photography feels like you, capturing the real details that make a wedding party — the love and connections between all in attendance. She says, “I believe that your wedding photos should stand the test of time. That they should make you /feel/ what your day was like. I believe in providing my clients with stunning images that will transport them back to one of the most important days of their lives.” As a Maui wedding photographer, she does exactly that.
Rolland and Jessica are a husband and wife photographer team and, like many who choose to spend their lives living and working together, are as in love with what they do as they are each other. Their love of the art shows in their natural touch — a blend of candid and posed photos that are cleanly edited are timelessly wonderful.
One peek at the portfolio of Adam (and his wife, Shawn), and you know their work is something special. Gorgeous pastel sunsets, the way seafoam becomes a design element, the clean lines and unique perspectives of their photography — all add up to a dazzling body of work. Part of their unique view comes from above — from a drone — but it is also how they incorporate the landscapes and water into their photos, making art that is more than merely documentary — it is richly soaked in color with a healthy dash of romance!
Rodrigo Moraes has been passionate about photography for basically his entire adult life. Although his story may not be as sentimental as some, it is honest and real — he bought himself a camera when he was 18 and fell in love with the medium and the art of photography. He describes himself as a relaxed guy, and that description shows up constantly in his work — documentary instead of posed, endeavoring to capture the real moments on a wedding day. He says, “I look to create intimate, honest images of my couples and strive to document this in a way that is as unique as their own love story. Whether I’m at a big wedding, an intimate elopement, a beautiful engagement, or a casual couple session – if there’s love involved, I’d love to be there.” If you want to work with an easygoing and professional photographer who will ensure that your unique day is documented in all of its loving beauty, choose Rodrigo.
Sandra and Kris are the couple in the name of their business. They love the storytelling aspect of photography — capturing the little details that make you, your love, and your wedding day special. If you have visions of eloping on dramatic lava beaches or frolicking in the jungle, they’ve got you covered. They work throughout all of the Hawaiian Islands and love traveling, so be sure to check them out wherever you are planning your nuptials.
