We use a “team” approach when it comes to our weddings. Joe’s assistant, who is a photographer in her own right, accompanies Joe on all our weddings. We will use off camera remote strobes, reflectors and scrims to create a magazine look. When we do our extensive Maui wedding edit, we fill in hot spots on the face, remove glare from sweat, adjust the image and add subtle yet effective photoshop effects to create an exceptional finished product.
Our Maui wedding photography packages include ALL the high resolution digital images from your wedding along with a selection of photographer chosen fully edited images and unlimited royalty free reproduction rights. This means you own the digital negatives, at no extra charge, and can print your wedding images at any photo lab around the world.
For romantic Maui weddings, we can create custom digital montage wedding albums with fine grain leather covers. The images are printed directly onto a stiff substrate creating a modern and archival album that you will enjoy for years to come. We have been designing these albums for years and will apply the same creativity to the album design that we give to the photography.
Our slideshow DVD’s combine contemporary Hawaiian Music with a select number of images from your Maui Wedding. These slideshows run on your HD video system in widescreen format and are a great way to share your Maui Wedding with friends and family on the big screen. These slideshows cost only $150.00 and can be added to any package. We also give you the option of choosing the 2 songs you would like to hear as your Maui Wedding soundtrack.
This is your wedding day. We treat each couple as if their wedding is the only one we shoot each year. We get to know our clients through the course of the day and become comfortable with one another to allow the spontaneity, joy and light to shine through to your Maui Wedding images.
Our custom edits are included in all of our Maui wedding packages. These meticulous edits insure that color, contrast saturation and cropping are optimal for a perfect print. We remove unsightly distraction from the background where possible and add subtle photoshop effects to some of the images. Black and white as well as sepia toning are also performed on a small selection. All of this is included in the package price.

We also have a wedding gallery which features still images and DVD slideshows from our recent weddings. All of the people in these images are regular folks, no models were used in any of our wedding imagery. Our blog follows the work we have been doing through the years and includes straight as well as gay weddings, ruminations on the Maui wedding scene and various observations.
