Secret Proposal Photography
Secret proposal photography can capture your special moment for a lifetime. A marriage proposal is a special occasion filled with emotion and joy. And what better place to propose than on Maui. From helping you choose an amazing location to secretly following you through this adventure, I will insure you have the most amazing photos for you to cherish for years to come.
Trash the Dress
Trash the Dress aka The Day After sessions provide an opportunity to capture photos at locations and in scenarios not possible on your wedding day. From an intimate shoot in your hotel room the morning after, nibbling on roomservice and lounging in bed, to splashing in the waves, diving underwater or standing arms outstretched under a waterfall, capturing special moments on your first day of being a married couple is priceless.
Underwater Photography in Maui
Underwater photography in Maui offers many exciting and rare photographic opportunities for fresh and truly different vivid images. And in Hawaii with it’s rich underwater flora and fauna those opportunities are limitless. Ian uses very specialized underwater equipment to capture stunning images, whether it is an engagement, proposal, trash the dress or even the actual ceremony itself. Ian loves the water and knows every special place on Maui to make your underwater sessions beautiful, fun and safe.
Engagement Photography – You’ve seen it (even if you may not have known what it was). Your friends on Facebook just announced their engagement and there are these super fun, very professional photos of them laughing, smiling, and otherwise being totally in love with each other: those photos are engagement photos.
These sessions are the perfect way to start your journey to the alter, and to work with your wedding photographer for the first time. These photos are great to be used in save the date cards, wedding websites, printing them on thank you cards, and of course, as a cherished keepsake to remind you of when you took that first step forward with each other.
During these sessions, you can be as creative or as traditional as you want to be. When you look back on your photo-shoot “date” we want to make sure that you recall fun times, laughter, and of course, all the memories that we create together.

We love to travel and truly enjoy destination wedding photography. This includes inter-island to international destinations, wherever you are drawn for your wedding.

Wedding Photo Albums
Telling your story through a wedding photo album is one of the most exciting parts after the event because you get to relive it all over again and it becomes a precious family heirloom forever. Turning page after page and sparking memory after memory. A wedding album creates a story—a life story. There’s nothing like it and nothing more magical, immersive or captivating.
