Best Maui Wedding Photographers
Congratulations! You've chosen Maui as your dream wedding destination, and things are starting to shape up! But who's going to capture your special day? Wedding photography is about far more than just technical photography skill, but also personality and whether they get along with you and the wedding party.
Many photographers are very helpful and will offer their own suggestions based on experience and local knowledge. If you haven't decided on an exact location and/or time, your photographer can be a great resource. Keep in mind that direct sunlight is often difficult to deal with, so if you have flexibility in your schedule, late afternoon / sunset photo shoots will often work best. Many photographers (especially the popular ones) will have times booked many months in advance, so be sure to confirm with your photographer that the time and location will work for them, too!
Below, we've taken a look at some of the most positively reviewed wedding photographers on Maui. Be sure to check out their portfolios, since pictures are worth a thousand words, and schedule a meeting / phone call to see if you are a good fit as well.
Most of the wedding photographers are based in the Kauhului / Kihei area, and will meet with you at most locations on Maui, including West Maui (Kapalua / Lahaina). Due to the difficulty in getting to Hana, some photographers may be willing on a case-by-case basis only.
If you are looking to do a photo shoot / wedding on a neighboring island such as Lanai, photographers based on Maui may be willing to make the trip, depending on the length of the shoot and whether you would be willing to pay a higher price to cover their travel costs. Again, work through the details with your photographer.
