What to expect on your photoshoot:
Our style is a mixture of posed and candid images. Our sessions tend to move fast with ease and are upbeat and fun. We take hundreds of photo’s during our session together to ensure we capture everything. We like to showcase a wide range of images for you to choose your favorites from. Depending on which session you pick, depends on the amount of high resolution images that are include in your package. We photograph a large range of sessions from; surprise proposals, maternity, families, portraits and weddings. Please let us know in your booking/contact inquire what you’re celebrating and how many people are in your session.
Where is the location of my photo shoot?
We are located on West Maui but travel island wide. Depending on where you are staying and what time your session is, location will vary. We have a large list of beaches we love working on and are permitted for. We are a licensed and insured company. Permits are needed for certain beaches and some beaches do not allow professional photography on them. Please let us know where you are staying so we can assist you with the best location that fits your wants and needs.
Whats better a morning or sunset session?
We love both! Sunset is always a more desirable time slot because of the pinks and oranges in the sky but we think mornings are just as beautiful. Mornings have a beautiful blue on the water that you don’t get at sunset as much. If you have little ones in the group mornings tend to be best. Especially with the time change adjustments. Mornings are not too bright with a nice even light. Our time frames for morning sessions are anywhere in-between 6:30am and 8:30am. The earlier the better if possible. After 9am it is very bright and the beaches tend to get crowded. Our sunset time slots are stunning and timing will always very with the sunset hour at that time of the year and the length of session that you book.
What is our weather and cancellation policy?
Weather on Maui is always beautiful. It fluctuates all day here from rain and rainbows to fluffy white clouds and trades. So when the weather calls for light rain we can usually travel 10 min and find blue skies. So please don’t get caught up on the weather app. If for some reason we need to reschedule do to weather we will try to get you another session in before you leave. With cancelations you can cancel your session online but if you do so within 48 hours a $50 dollar charge will be applied to your credit card on file.
How do we take payment?
When you book your session online you have the option to pay in full or reserve your session with a deposit. If you prefer to pay in person after the session we can also except Venmo, PayPal or cash. Pictures will not be released until the session has been paid for.
What is our turn around time?
We have 2-3 week turnaround for photo shoots. This also depends on the season. The summer and Holiday breaks are our busy time. Weddings are generally 6-8 week turnaround with Sneak Peeks in 48 hours.
