Maggie and Derek are high-school sweethearts. How adorable is that! They have been together for ten beautiful years. In those ten years, the two of them have never been on a vacation together... until Maui! What started out as a fun adventure filled with camping and driving around the island ended up being the most memorable vacation they will ever have. They tied the knot with laughter and tears and started off a long life of amazing vacations to come.

When asked what Maggie was looking for in a photographer, she responded with this polite email:

"We are very goofy together and best friends but both pretty shy and have never been professionally photographed before. We like candid and soft romantic photos that seem personal or intimate. Artistic shots and details really resonate with us. . Thanks, Maggie"

It was a pleasure to photograph such an elegant wedding that day on the beach. The Maui sunset could not be more perfect. Sometimes Maui skies can be dramatic and wild, but it perfectly matched the soft romantic wedding photos that Maggie and Derek were looking for, as well as a few pops of golden light to match their bright and bubbly personalities.
