BraveHart’s Legacy – The Hartman Family’s Maui Family Portraits

.People travel to Hawaii, Maui in particular, for all different reasons. There’s something about the natural beauty from a bygone era, the crisp salty breeze straight off the Pacific, and the easy-going atmosphere that grabs hold of your heart and speaks to your soul. For many, it’s a chance at adventure; for others it’s an opportunity to just relax in a pretty place. For some, though, it’s a special place to heal. We were so honored to meet the Hartman Family and touched to be a part of their Maui Family Portraits. Our majestic island was this warm and caring family’s place of peace to continue their healing journey and spend some quality time with one another. Sometimes things happen in life that…well…just don’t make any sense. We can all learn a lesson from these tough individuals that prove that we are stronger when we stick together. As I write with tears in my eyes for their loss, I am hopeful and moved by the smiles on their faces. At the end of the day, enjoying time with

A Backyard Wedding for Friends! – Kylie & Carlos’ Maui Wedding

Carlos and Kylie are dear friends of ours and when they decided to get married, they knew they wanted something simple, sweet and home grown. In fact they wanted it so simple they were not even going to have a photographer. Of course I was not going to have that so I was happy to be their “guest tographer” wedding guest and photographer. I promised to put down the camera once I had enough wine to make the photos blurry so after a few dancing photos, I joined in the fun and got to relax and celebrate these great friends! I loved their wedding because it had that backyard wedding feel, but it was also ocean front, best of both worlds! It was held at Camp Olowalu so friends and family were able to stay in the cabins right on property to keep the celebration going all night.

Traditions of the Past & Vision of the Future – Carissa & Nicholas’ Maui Beach Wedding

Whether the wedding is elaborate or intimate, every bride knows, it’s all in the details. What better way to capture those elements than with story telling ‘getting ready’ photos. As Carissa and her loved ones prepared for her big day, our talented staff photographer Ajja was able to capture some of the heart warming moments leading up to ‘I do.’ After an emotional note from her soon-to-be husband, this stunning bride arrived at Southside for her romantic Maui Beach Wedding. You can never have too much love and our lucky lady was fortunate enough to be escorted by both her father and step-dad while Etta James’ “At Last” whispered on the wind. Adding to the personal details, as is their tradition, our dashing groom Nicholas welcomed his new wife in to his Scottish clan by pinning his family’s tartan on her during the ceremony. With broad smiles and happy hearts, the newly coined Mr & Mrs Sutherland embark on this fantastic journey together. Congratulations, you two, and thank you for l

A Dramatic Beach Wedding – Jen and Beau’s Maui Wedding Preview!

We were so happy to be the Maui Wedding Photographers for Jen and Beau’s amazing day! It was full of so much emotion and love! A wedding day with no rain at all wouldn’t have been fitting for this Pacific Northwest couple, so Maui gave them a little sprinkle to make them feel welcome, then let the sun shine through the clouds for the rest of their photos, creating some amazing dramatic skies. We loved how the bright colors of the Bouquets by Dellables contrasted the aqua ocean, the perfect mix of neutral and bright.

Shade Trees & A Setting Sun – Jane & Luke Maui Wedding Photography

With soft hues and a setting sun as a back drop, Jane and Luke recently exchanged vows and became husband and wife with the stunning Maui Wedding Photography to prove it. Their loved ones that were able to make the trip sat nestled under the trees to witness the show of love before them and were blessed with the perfect evening. South Maui’s Kukahiko Estate offers the seclusion that every couple wants, and the spectacular scenery for photos that you can’t put a price tag on. We are so happy for these two beaming newlyweds and we are grateful to have been able to capture the event for them. Jane and Luke, we wish you nothing but the best and can’t wait to see you back in the future! Mahalo & Warm Aloha!!!Maui Venue Wedding Package:

Celebrations & Carefree Smiles – The Russell’s Maui Family Portraits

Hailing from Texas, the Russell family was blessed with a beautiful bright blue morning at Baby Beach that went perfectly with their well coordinated wardrobe. In town to celebrate Deena & Reginald’s 36th Wedding Anniversary, they decided to commemorate this special time with Maui Family Portraits. An adorable little girl in the group means you can’t have too many photos so we are so glad Karma Hill Photography was able to capture this day. The crisp sky, clear water, and happy faces make for a perfect combination. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your portrait session and we look forward to the next anniversary on Maui!

Beaming Boys and a Beautiful Beach – The Dolin Family’s Maui Portraits

When you have lived somewhere like Hawaii, there’s a connection to the islands you will always feel no matter where you end up. With Erin having lived here during college and Dustin having been born and raised in Kihei, it makes sense that they would want to share their love of the Magic Isle with their children. Traveling from Colorado as often as possible, the Dolins took the opportunity to have Maui Family Portraits taken in South Maui as a way to capture this moment in time. Now, all four of them will have lasting memories of Maui to carry with them forever. We want to thank the Dolin family for choosing Karma Hill Photography as it was a pleasure to be a part of this experience with you all. We look forward to next time!!!
