I received a call from Aaron who wanted to set up a Maui portrait session for him and his girlfriend “Amy”. Aaron shared that they were living in Japan where they had just gotten engaged and soon to be married. He also shared that he was going to bring Amy here on Maui to celebrate in a nice Maui engagement vacation, and wanted to take their engagement photos to share with friends and family back home. We emailed back and forth for a few weeks discussing the details and planning for the photo session. Finally, the day come for us to meet at the Andaz Hotel in Wailea.
We decided on Poolenalena beach as our destination. We had started our session there and then made the walk over to Paipu beach where we then finished our portrait session with some lovely sunset photos. My job as a Maui photographer was effortless; as the couple was so easy to work with. I think at times they even forgot I was even there! Engrossed and lost in one another seamlessly, I watched as they filled the air with romance and laughter. As I clicked away, they occasionally looked back for some direction, but they were really just relaxed and happy to be in Maui celebrating their wedding engagement.
The air was definitely filled with love this afternoon at the beach and not only was it a easy shoot, and we laughed and joked around like old friends. My lighting assistant, Trevor, and I had a wonderful time with this couple and are hoping they decide to make it back to Maui for their wedding photos. Thank you for choosing us at Behind The Lens Maui for your Maui Portrait Session.
