On December 2, 2013, LGBTQ marriage was legalized in Hawaii. Upon hearing that great news, my friends and I  on Maui, as well as my friends  in the San Francisco Bay area all launched into a wild ecstatic dance of celebration! 

I recently photographed a full day gay wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House in Maui, just a few miles from Lahaina. There was not a dry eye during the wedding ceremony and my tears of joy kept fogging up the eyepiece on my camera,   I  absolutely loved shooting that wedding, and we had a blast together!

I feel very blessed to apply my focus and artistry to deliver  Premiere LGBTQ Wedding Photography on the beautiful Island of Maui, Hawaii. I offer my clients a full spectrum of Maui Wedding Photography Packages, including custom packages to perfectly meet their Maui Wedding Photography needs as well as their budgets. In the spirit of aloha I offer my clients bonus gifts, including Early Booking Discounts. 

My business policy is to offer win/win  scenarios  to all my  clients in the Spirit of Aloha.

I have been photographing weddings since  1992, in the greater Bay Area and have continued shooting weddings upon moving to this most beautiful island of  Maui in 2001.

My  love of photography combined with  many years of study  and decades of  shooting experience as a professional photographer assures my delivering my clients creativity that is rarely found with other Maui Wedding Photography studios. The following endorsement is from one of my dearest colleagues who is the founder of  Blend Images:
