Congratulations on your upcoming special day!

I know how important it is to find the perfect photographer who takes the time to get to know you and guide you through all the little details, so that you can relax and cherish every moment.

When I married my husband 11 years ago, I was on your side of the lens (if only I’d known then what I know now!), so I know how it feels preparing for your special day—especially if you’re not local to Hawaii. That’s why I’m proud to deliver a photography experience that ensures you are cared for throughout the planning process, relaxed and comfortable on the day, and absolutely thrilled with the final editing. Because you deserve nothing less! 

riginally from California, I moved to Maui with my husband 9 years ago. And my goodness, I can't even begin to describe how much we LOVE living in Maui! The island inspiration, combined with my new “Mom” status, led me to photography, and I’ve never looked back since. It’s such an honor to document love stories here in paradise, to be The Knot’s 2021 Pick for The Best of Weddings, and the choice Hawaii photographer for couples who adore classic, timeless photography that tells their own, unique love story.

words from past clients


We booked Jenny because we loved her style, color scheme, and personality. We absolutely fell in love with her on our wedding day because of her professionalism and way of making us feel completely at ease. And we were blown away by the speed and quality of the photos she delivered!

If you can’t tell already, we absolutely recommend Jenny as your wedding photographer, without a doubt. She was initially very communicative and easy to reach when we had any sort of questions or concerns. She immediately became like a friend with frequent social media communications. On the day of the wedding, she managed to be friendly and put us at ease without the excessive over-the-top bubbliness we have seen in some photographers.

Jenny is an absolute professional. She knows what she’s doing and you feel guided during the photo shoots without over direction. She is familiar with many settings in Maui and works beautifully with videographers. She is somehow always there and can make herself invisible at times. It’s perfect.

And her photos are perfect. We were unsure if they would turn out. It was windy. It was cloudy sometimes and it even was raining. But they turned out STUNNING. We could not be happier. And trust me, there is no better feeling than receiving your wedding photos and being so absolutely pleased with them that the only word you can possibly use to describe them is…perfect.

Also have to give a shoutout to Meigan, her lovely second shooter who also had amazing energy and I know helped capture our day beautifully. They are a great team.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our wedding day! I haven't had professional photos taken before and was a little nervous about not knowing how to "pose." Jenny gave great direction and made me feel at ease behind the camera and our phtotos turned out amazing! After we got our wedding photos back I was impressed at all the amazing moments Jenny and her team captured for us. Little moments that I might have forgotten had she not captured them on film.

Having Jenny as our photographer allowed me to just enjoy our wedding day and be present in every moment without having to worry if a certain moment was going to get captured. You can trust Jenny to get ALL the moments and MORE.

The package we booked included an "engagement photo session or after wedding session" and I asked Jenny if she would be willing to do an "adventure day" where we hiked up a trail to take photos and I was so happy when she agreed! It was a lot of work to carry her camera up a steep trail but she did it for us and we got some really cool photos of my husband and I the day after we got married doing one of our favorite things, Trail Running and Hiking.

While browsing for wedding photographers, Jenny’s tastefully light and earthy photography style immediately grabbed our attention because it matched exactly what we were looking for. We were lucky to be going to Maui early enough before our wedding, so we decided to shoot our engagement photos with Jenny and will be forever grateful that we did! I wasn’t sure that our wedding photos would be able to top how beautiful our engagement photos at Honolua Bay turned out, but Jenny was able to capture every moment just as beautifully as before. She has an eye for capturing important memories and for finding the perfect scenic spot for every moment. Jenny helped guide us through poses, while also allowing and encouraging us to be our silly selves. We continue to receive compliments on both our engagement and wedding photos to this day. The most challenging part of our journey with Jenny was deciding which photos to put up on our wall. Spoiler: there’s a lot!

It was such a pleasure getting to work with Jenny for our wedding! When it came down to choosing a photographer, I did lots of research on IG, yelp, Google reviews and I eventually narrowed down the search to Jenny. Her photography style is bright and vibrant and I feel like she captured the vibe we were looking for. An engagement shoot was included in our package so we were able to fly out to Maui 10 months before our wedding to meet with Jenny. On our wedding day, it was nice to see a familiar face and work with her again (alongside Meigan). Both were fantastic and they captured so many memories for us. The pictures are stunning and we're so happy to be able to live through our wedding through these pictures! Thank you Jenny and Meigan!

Pictures can be an intimidating process--especially if you are not one to enjoy being in them. I was looking for a photographer for our engagement pictures and found Jenny on Instagram and quickly loved her aesthetic. Communication was such an ease with her and we felt very comfortable sharing what we needed and wanted. Once we met Jenny, we quickly felt taken care of. She provided clear direction, guidance, encouragement to feel relaxed and we truly enjoyed the process. We knew she had gotten some great shots but boy were we blown away with how many she got. We were happy to even get 10 great pictures but we received so many that we are having a hard time picking our favorites! We loved our engagement photos so we hired her for our wedding as well. We hope to renew our vows one day and if Jenny is still in Maui, we are definetely hiring her again. I highly recommend Jenny if you want to capture your love through pictures.

We had the pleasure of having Jenny photograph our destination elopement! We planned everything from afar and she was so great in giving resources, and offer ideas. She was very personable and made us feel so comfortable. We had a bit of rain come through and she really helped us embrace rolling with the punches and you can’t even tell it was raining in our photos. I recommend her to everyone I know visiting Maui!! We will definitely be scheduling with her again when we are back on Maui. 10/10!!

I stumbled on Jenny Vargas on instagram while looking for Maui photographers for my 2019 wedding and fell in love with her esthetics and the sceneries she photographed her clients in. I immediately reached out. Everything from our first phone meeting, communication via emails, and in person meetings were a breeze. We had a quick pre shoot a few days before our big day and she prepped us on how to pose for pictures. Our wedding pictures turned out so amazing. Jenny was extremely professional throughout the whole process. I have happily recommended Jenny Vargas to multiple people for their special days. She is amazing at what she does!

Look no further! You have found the best Hawaiian Islands photographer. Jenny was accommodating, prompt, gave helpful tips and had great ideas/poses for our wedding portraits. We get compliments ALL THE TIME on our photos. They’re breathtaking and make me cry! She captured such beautiful memories for us. We eloped so the 3 people that were there (minister, Jenny and her assistant) were special and shared a special time with us. Mahalo Jenny we love you!
