Wedding FAQ

Weddings can be exciting and a bit stressful! Hopefully we can answer a few questions in the faq that will ease your mind. If you do not see a question you have answered, please contact us anytime.

How far in advance should I book my photographer?

We recommend reserving your photographer as soon as you have your wedding date set. Popular dates can book up very quickly sometimes up to 18 months in advance so we suggest you send us an email to inquire about date availability right away.

What if my date is flexible?

Flexible dates are great, especially for beach weddings. We can help you choose a date in the date range you are thinking depending on our availability, busiest times and locations.

Can we have wedding photos taken anywhere on the island?

There are many beautiful public locations and beaches that we have to choose from here on Maui. There are also a few beaches that are off limits such as Kaanapali Beach & Makena State Park. Others such as Wainapnapa State Park and Haleakala require special permits and requirement to have photos taken there. many hotels require you get permission from a manager to have photographs take on property. Please let us know what you have in mind and we will advise accordingly.

I am so excited to see my photos!! When will I get them?

We want to deliver he best possible images to our couples and this takes a little time. Our editing time during busy wedding season runs between 6-8 weeks if not a little sooner. We love to post sneak peeks when there is time and usually post 1 or 2 images on Facebook or Instagram. If you need a few images for thank you cards or an at home reception right away, we are happy to provide these when requested.

Do I need to have a permit to get married on the beach?
