Maui Adventure Elopement and Wedding Photographer, Hawaii Weddings

Hawaii Wedding and Adventure Elopement Photographer
Maui, Hawaii

I returned from Maui, Hawaii recently and captured some adventure couples while there. No it wasn’t for a wedding or an adventure elopement. The couples I photographed weren’t engaged or getting married. I literally was exploring some of the Island’s adventurous locations, wedding venues, and just asked strangers if I could photograph them. This couple here is Chris and Laura. They were holding each other in a blanket watching the sunrise when I was inspired to photograph them. I simply asked if I could get a few photos, to which they agreed. Being that I was with a group, my time was limited. So, I literally only had a few minutes with them and then sprinted down a trail to catch my bus. I was the last one on the bus, but…it was so worth it. Below are some of their images from that day.

Our family loves Hawaii. I have been traveling to Hawaii recently, Maui, Kauai, and Oahu, for weddings, elopements, and adventure sessions. I take my family when I can, and it’s a great place for vacations while I’m working or exploring. My wife and I actually had our honeymoon in Maui. So, we absolutely love it there. Here’s the first adventurous Kauai wedding I photographed there at the Na ana kai botanical gardens. Actually looking back, it was more of a Hawaii elopement.

For the first time, we stayed at the Grand Wailea Resort, which we loved for our kids to swim around in their many pools, wow, their water-slides, access to the beach, and much more. We stayed at another hotel for most of the week, but we wanted to splurge and try the Grand Wailea for a few days. They also have weddings there, and hopefully I book one at that venue.


If you’re looking to get married in Hawaii, desiring to elope on one of the Hawaii Island wedding destinations, or maybe just interested in a couples adventure session, I will be traveling back there each year. I would love to hear more and book your date. There are many Hawaii wedding venues, adventurous locations, beautiful waterfalls, epic trails, and other romantic opportunities to get some creative photos. I can guide you or at least help you plan your session to help you get the best out of your photos.


I just love photographing in Maui and Kauai and know some good areas if you’re interested. In Oahu, the Kualoa Ranch is pretty read and is where they filmed quite a few movies, like Jurassic world and Lost. There are many beautiful locations there at Kualoa. Send me an email through this website. I would love to hear more about your adventure session, elopement, or wedding.

Yosemite Elopement Adventure Wedding Photographer

Yosemite Elopement Adventure with Michael and Liz

Wedding Ceremony at Yosemite National Park Sunrise

Planning an elopement with couples in Yosemite is always an adventure and I have many of them this year. I enjoy guiding and photographing ceremonies as well as adventure photos all over the park with wedding couples. When I’m not covering couples in the park, I’m hiking an exploring new territory for them, which makes this ceremony and wedding day pretty special. Liz and Michael eloped last month in this new location where I don’t usually photograph couples, and it took a little scrambling for the family, but we got some beautiful photos of them and their family. I think they would say it was worth it.

For them this is a destination wedding since they live in Louisville, Kentucky. I enjoyed their company and specially their personalities. I think I laughed quite a bit while hiking with them. While the family was kind, and the day was adventurous, there was quite a bit of traffic in the valley which made it difficult to find parking. However, we captured some beautiful photos of them throughout the park. I hope you enjoy some of them here. Congratulations to Michael and Liz.


Please keep updated and follow my blog. I have more beautiful wedding couples to post soon as it slows down. I have a busy season with many elopements and weddings and there are so many good ones. So, hopefully I can post more consistently. Have a great summer.
