Photographer, Mompreneur, and Island Enthusiast

I’m a passionate, professional photographer based in Maui, Hawaii, and I’m on a mission to capture loving memories that you’ll cherish forever. 

Tell Me More

grew up in California, and moved to Maui with my husband 7 years ago. And my goodness, I can't even begin to describe how much we LOVE living in Maui! I feel grateful to be in paradise every day, and I truly appreciate everything the islands have to offer. 

There’s something magical about Hawaii, don’t you think?! I can’t think of a better destination to capture your love story...When you pair a couple in love with the beauty of paradise, it’s a memory that’s hard to beat!

It was the island inspiration, combined with my new “Mom” status, that led me to photography. I wanted to be home with my son to witness every special moment, and I wanted to capture every smile, and every milestone, and be able to look back and remember them forever.

And gosh what an honor it is to be featured as the The Knot’s 2019 Pick for The Best of Weddings!

So I taught myself photography and took at least a million photographs of my son, until I had mastered the camera, the editing process, and the natural island light. And then I advanced my skills by studying directly under the leaders of the photography industry. To date I have completed several advanced photography courses, workshops, online trainings, and style shoots, and I attend annual photography conferences to ensure I’m always refining my skills, and staying current on industry trends. I was determined and committed to become the Mompreneur I envisioned, and I knew I couldn’t be the only one who so dearly wanted to capture the details, the love, and the emotion of those moments in life that matter most.

much as I love adventure, shopping, a good glass of wine, and watching Netflix with my husband and son by my side, I adore the dreaminess of real-life hollywood-style love stories. I just can’t help myself...especially when I get to photograph couples in love all the time! #bestjobever 

I’m a big believer in the beauty of love, the union of marriage, and the importance of each couple’s commitment to one another. 

Choosing a photographer to capture such an intimate moment of your life is a big deal—I get it—and I consider it the greatest honor to get to document your special day. That’s why I pride myself in delivering an experience that you will remember forever.

My

philosophy

I adore the dreaminess of real-life hollywood-style love stories.

A photography session is so much more than just having photographs taken on the day.

It’s about discussing and creating the perfect experience that captures your love story; feeling at ease during your photoshoot; and receiving beautifully edited images that are everything you hoped for, and so much more. Because you deserve nothing less. 

And I’m sure you have so many questions. What time of day is best for the photoshoot? Which Maui beaches allow photoshoots? Who do you recommend for hair and makeup? How long should we allow to get the perfect shot? And the list goes on...right?! 

I was in your same shoes when I married my husband 10 years ago, so I’ve been on your side of the lens, and I know how it feels preparing for a photography session—especially if you’re not local to Hawaii. Which is why I’ll be right beside you throughout the planning process, and the photoshoot experience, to guide you, and to make suggestions that will free you up to relax and enjoy your special day. 

When you’re relaxed and comfortable with your photographer, the session is so much fun, your personal connection with one another shines through, and your photographs turn out nothing short of AH-MAZING! That’s why I take the time to get to know every one of my clients. 

If timeless, film-inspired photography that captures the essence of your love story is what you’re seeking, we’re going to be the best of friends! 

hen I’m not behind the lens, I’m out and about enjoying all that Hawaii has to offer with my ‘ohana. You can find us enjoying a staycation at one of Maui’s gorgeous resorts, savoring shave ice on a hot Hawaiian day, and taking sunset strolls in peaceful upcountry Maui. 

But enough about me—this is about your special day, and everything you dream it to be.

Hello! My name is Lexi. You may ask, what is it about photography that I love? Well, from the time I was old enough to crawl, rarely was I ever in front of a camera. I often found myself behind my moms Panasonic camcorder. Then when I had enough money, at the age of 13, I bought my first DSLR camera. Here, I spent many hours exploring photography, and the more I learned, the more I loved it. It was those building blocks that led me to where I am today. As I continued to follow my passion for photography, I blossomed into the space I am in now; making photography my full-time career. About four years ago, I started my professional photography business in Pennsylvania. Now, since living in Maui, my business has flourished beyond what I ever imagined. So, I would say photography has always been my calling.  

In photography and life, I value relationships. I believe we're in the business of building connections and I find that a crucial part of being in the photography industry. I never want to be looked at as a vendor but rather a friend whom you can trust to capture your special moments. I am here to capture your trust personality and love for the people you hold closest to your heart, and I hold that to a very high standard. I always want your photoshoot to feel relaxed, comfortable, and flexible. I do my best to make your session fun and make it flow, just as life does so effortlessly.

Hi guys! My name is Maria, but I go by Vicky. You may ask, "How did you get into photography?" Firstly, I love getting creative and capturing everything; varying shots from posed, candid, laughter, and even tears (happy tears, of course). My journey as a photographer began after high school. As I looked for work to make an income that would pay for college, I found a job helping two professional landscape photographers. I dedicated every Saturday at 4 am assisting the photographers at the local swap meet. I learned everything about photography and owning a business from them. Now, here I am doing what I love.   

Over the years, I learned to value time, family, and my surroundings. Time with family and loved ones have been at the top of my priorities, and I know how precious it is. That is why I want to capture your time with your family and loved ones. I am dedicated to create quality images and provide you with an unforgettable experience. As the saying goes, "No Worries." So, please relax and allow yourself to soak in your Maui experience.
