October 22, 2022


Last Updated on April 25, 2024 by Karma Hill

A few days ago, we had the absolute pleasure of photographing Angela and Thomas’ Maui elopement! It was a simple and lovely celebration that centered around their love and commitment to each other. Elopements are so incredibly moving because all the noise and fanfare are stripped away and what’s left is what truly matters most at the heart of it! So let’s see a few highlights of their precious day…

At The Heart of It All

It was a glorious afternoon; the sun shone on our sweet pair for their Maui elopement. Elopements are the most intimate of nuptial celebrations that leave us deeply moved. You could feel their deep connection and love for each other when they stepped onto the beach! It was a relaxed, carefree ambiance that was so fitting for our lovely couple. At the heart of it, they wanted something simple centered around just the two. It was so beautiful to witness!

The Look of Love

When they exchanged their leis, Angela looked at Tom with such warmth and love, as you can see below. It took us aback as if they were the only two in the world! That makes a Maui elopement so special…it’s nothing but you and your partner with the waves, sunshine, and sand in paradise. Thomas couldn’t stop staring at his beautiful bride too!

Our hearts lept as Reverend Richardo declared our stunning couple, “husband and wife!” It was the moment they both had been waiting for… you can see the joy and happiness radiating around them!

Angela was a vision in white – she opted for a delicate beaded gown that sparkled in the sunlight! Her tropical bouquet completed her glowing complexion. Doesn’t she look stunning?!

Now it was time to celebrate! We took a few portraits of our newlyweds as the sun began to dip below the horizon. The lighting was so soft and luminescent! Tom looked happy and proud as he embraced his new bride…so romantic! Their genuine love and support for each other shone through our lens the entire afternoon, as you’ll see below…

For their Maui elopement, our charming couple chose Maluaka beach for their special celebration. We love this beach for a Maui elopement because it is a long, beautiful beach on the quieter side. Opposed to the more crowded and touristy beaches, this one is calmer and has the most amazing sunsets!

These two! We think these are our favorite photos of the day yet! There is such warmth, affection, and deep friendship between them… so blissfully happy!

Paradise Found

After the most serene portraits, our dear couple’s playful side came out! They danced, twirled, and soaked in the tropical scenery as the sky turned to amber and gold… just the two of them. We were in awe of these precious moments! Maui elopements are truly enchanting!
