Creating a Life Together: Christie & Christopher’s Maui Elopement

August 30, 2022


Christie & Christopher are an incredible couple, and we’re so happy we got to be a part of their dreamy Maui Elopement. They had a little bit of everything: professional styling, rain and shine, a traditional ceremony with some Hawaiian-inspired elements, and a love that’s brighter than even the sunniest day.

And Karma Hill Photography was there to capture it all! If you need us, we’ll just be over here, swooning over Christie & Christopher’s breathtaking wedding photos.

Elopement Getting Ready Photography

Even the smallest, sweetest weddings deserve great getting-ready photography. This is the chance for the bride to revel in her head-to-toe style and capture bridal portraits as unique and stunning as her. And Christie understood the assignment!

We’re so glad we got to capture these exciting final moments before she headed off to the beach to marry the love of her life.

While Christie was putting the final touches on her bridal style, Christopher was at the beach, anxiously awaiting her arrival. We love the moment when he first saw her at the ceremony. It was like all his nerves evaporated and he was left with only blissful love. We’re getting chill bumps looking at the Maui elopement photos because it was so sweet!

All The Light They Need

Ok, we definitely hoped for a bright sunny day for Christie & Christopher’s Maui elopement, but we’re actually super obsessed with the colors and lighting at the beach. The clouds settled over the calm water, filtering the light into dreamy hues of blues and green. It was peaceful and beautiful, just like Christie & Christopher’s love for each other.

Besides, they are so bright and full of life that they provided all the light we needed at the beach for their Maui elopement.

Keep scrolling to see how fun these two are! From their small cake cutting to their walk along the beach as newlyweds, each moment is a core memory that they’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Maui Elopement at Poʻolenalena Beach

Christie & Christopher wed at Poʻolenalena Beach in South Maui. This large stretch of sand boasts views of Kahoʻolawe, Molokini, Pu’u Ola’i, and the West Maui Mountains. Plus, there are tall palm trees, vibrant green shrubbery, and dramatic lava rock formations. It’s a location that’s both playful and romantic, so it was the perfect spot for these love birds.

They shared a dance in the rain, and then the clouds held back long enough for us to get a majestic sunset picture that’s sure to get framed. It was such a fun Maui elopement from start to finish, and we are so happy we get to share these pictures with Christie & Christopher!
