Our Most Frequently Asked Maui Wedding Questions

They are both great, it really depends on the look you want for your pictures. The mornings give a brighter more tropical look, the sunsets a more orange light and the opportunity to have a Maui sunset in the background.

Which is better, a sunset wedding or morning wedding?

We also partner with a fabulous concierge who can book many extras and activities for you at no additional charge!

A link to your proofing website will be sent to you via e-mail approximately 3-4 weeks after your wedding. Turnaround time may be longer in peak season. You can share this website with all your friends and family and professional quality prints are available for purchase through your website. You will have more photos on your website than what is included in your package, you will then get to choose your favorite images. You can also choose to purchase additional images above what was included in your package.

How soon can we view our Maui Wedding Photos?

Your wedding photographer will be assigned from the the Karma Hill Photography team. Karma Hill Photography is a well established and experienced photography company. All of the photographers on the team shoot in a similar style using the beautiful natural light of Maui as well as off camera lighting when needed. All images are reviewed by the lead photographer and owner, Karma, before they are released to you to insure the consistent amazing quality you see throughout our website and blog.

Who will be photographing our wedding?

The beach in Kaanapali is restricted for commercial activity, meaning, no weddings on the beach. That is the reason you see beaches available north and south of Kaanapali beach on our Beach Wedding Locations page for the West Side of the island (Kaanapali, Lahaina, Kapalua area). The state can impose fines for conducting commercial activity on the beach up to $5000.

Can we have our wedding on Kaanapali Beach?

All the beaches of Maui are considered public property and chairs, arches or any other thing that could obstruct use of other people using the beach is not allowed. If you would like an arch or chairs, consider one of our amazing private venues.

Can we have chairs or arches on the beach for our wedding?

State permitting rules allow for a maximum of 30 guests. For larger groups, we are happy to help you create a beautiful venue wedding. 

What size wedding do you recommend for a Maui beach wedding?

'ALL' of the photos on our website are taken in the morning or at sunset, because these are the optimal times for lighting. The intense sun can make it very difficult to get great shots as it creates lots of unflattering shadows. We can definitely accommodate a mid-day or afternoon wedding, but it is not recommended for best possible outcome for photography.

Can I have a 'mid day' or 'afternoon' wedding start time?

Luckily, this does not happen very often on Maui! In the event we have localized rain showers, we will attempt to move your ceremony to a nearby beach where it is not raining. If the rain island wide, we will proceed as planned with umbrellas unless the weather is dangerous. It is almost impossible to re-schedule a wedding because of the availability of our team and clients planned travel schedules, so we do not re-schedule a wedding unless the conditions are too dangerous to be out in.
