2017 – A Year in Review with our Maui Photography Team

Wow what a year! It was so amazing it took us an entire month of reflection to take in all the awesomeness! We wanted to put together a look back on all our portraits to see all the pretty that happened this year.

Alaskans on Adventure – The Burnett Family’s Maui Portraits

As the kids grow, so does the desire to capture the beautiful moments that transpire in the blink of an eye. The sweet smiles, the charming giggles, the eye roll inspiring antics. They all become memories to cherish and we were so glad to capture some for the Burnett Family. Returning from Fairbanks, Alaska, it was so much fun to see how the kids have changed in the last year. One thing that remains the same is the love so obviously shared between these five fabulous family members. We had such a good time hanging out with them and capturing their Maui Family Portraits again. With Baby Beach sparkling all around them, they played and laughed along the shore and celebrated the family bonding time they so surely wanted. Thank you, Burnett Family, for thinking of Karma Hill Photography again to capture the memorable moments.

Happiness Ahead – Camilla & Lasse’s Maui Elopement

On the cusp of building a beautiful family together, Denmark’s Camilla and Lasse took some time for themselves on our golden shores. Wanting to celebrate with a private Maui Elopement, they were all smiles and sheer joy as they joined hands and hearts and took the next steps in to their new life together. Blessed with a stunning evening, Southside Beach was like a dream unfolding around them. Soft, ethereal light. Lush landscape. Dancing sea. It was everything the Danish duo could ask for and we are so glad they got to enjoy it. Thank you, Camilla and Lasse, for letting our team capture the moment when your futures became one.

A Time To Remember – Heather & Brendan’s Maui Engagement Portraits

As the sun rose to begin a new day, the Maui Engagement Portrait session began for the adorable duo of Heather and Brendan. Ditching the cold Alberta winter for some fun and romance in the sun, the newly betrothed pair were all smiles as they reveled in the warmth of the day. Having enjoyed a holiday engagement, the excitement is still fresh in their hearts as they prepare for the next big step in their lives. After three years together, they are sure of one thing. They found their special someone. We are so glad they were treated to the natural beauty that Southside Beach has to offer for this incredible milestone in their relationship.

Seaside Stunners – Amy & John’s Maui Elopement & Trash The Dress

Looking exquisite beside the sparkling sea, Amy joined hands with John as they prepared for their Maui Elopement. Preferring to avoid the stress and pressure of a large event, they chose to leave Ohio behind for a few days and instead enjoy an intimate celebration for two. With the sounds of the ukulele dancing on the breeze, they exchanged tears and vows as they took the next steps into their future. Rounding out their phenomenal wedding collection, they opted to have a ‘Trash the Dress’ session the morning after their wedding to take advantage of the bright blues present first thing in the morning. While this bride and groom are stunning, it’s the love in their eyes that’s most beautiful of all and we are so honored we got to capture it. Thank you, Amy and John, for letting our team share in the joy of this time of your lives. Best wishes for a beautiful life together.

Makena Cove Celebration – Miranda & Andrew’s Maui Wedding

When you’re going to be in paradise anyways, why not take advantage of the superb setting? Bailing on the Indiana winter for a little while, Miranda and Andrew decided an intimate wedding in Makena Cove had their names all over it. Mesmerized by the sights on this, their first visit to the island, the adorable duo were all smiles on the day they became husband and wife. With the morning shining bright, it was a forecast of the incredible adventure that lay ahead and we couldn’t think of a better team to set out together. The easy laughter and obvious sense of humor was on point with this pair of lovebirds. These two are so much fun and we had a blast capturing the precious moments shared between our new friends from the Mid-West. Thank you, Miranda and Andrew, for choosing Karma Hill Photography to be your Maui Wedding Photographer. It was an honor and we wish you all the best in your journey together.

Paradise For Two – Mandy & Raymond’s Maui Elopement

Before heading to Hong Kong for their honeymoon, Mandy and Raymond gathered on the beautiful Kapalua shore to enjoy their Maui Elopement. Thrilled to escape the Canadian cold, the Hawaiian sun warmed them to the soul as they took the next step into their future. Ironwoods Beach provided a stunning scene as the waves tossed themselves towards the coast. The lush landscape and soft cloud cover made for an ethereal look that we absolutely love!!! We are so glad this adorable duo was treated to this day, and honored we were there to capture it. Thank you, Mandy and Raymond! What a pleasure it was meeting you both. Best wishes for a beautiful life together.

Warm Smiles & Happy Feet – The Chee Family’s Maui Beach Portraits

Time flies when you’re having fun! That’s exactly what happened to our team when capturing the Maui Family Beach Portraits for the Chee Family. They were so much fun!!! Easily photographed, and needing such little guidance, we were able to move from spot to spot and grab a variety of backdrops on the fabulous DT Fleming Beach. In town to celebrate Maddy’s 9th birthday, she and brother Matthew were good as gold as the played and laughed along the shore. Such great kids!!! Honestly, we cannot say enough great things about this amazing California quartet. The smiles were endless on the perfect Kapalua morning as the waves danced in the distance. Thank you, Chee Family, for letting our team be on hand to capture this moment in your family’s story. We absolutely adored spending the morning with you and we can’t wait for your next visit!

Happy Haven In Winter – The Hayford Family’s Maui Portraits

As a fabulous Christmas gift for their amazing dad and step mom, Brit and Christina were so excited to arrange a Maui Family Portrait for their troop. Escaping the winter back home, they reveled in the warmth and beauty of their first time on island. Loving the landscape, and the bonding time with the newest family member, the Hayford Family was all smiles as they played, walked, and laughed along the golden shore. With Kanaha Beach preening around them, the soft cloud cover made for a dreamy scene and no sun-blinding moments. It was an amazing day and we are so glad they were able to enjoy it with us. Thank you, Hayford Family, for choosing Karma Hill Photography. Until we meet again, Warm Aloha!!!Maui Family Photographer: Chantelle of Karma Hill PhotographyLocation: Kanaha BeachTime of Day: SunsetCheck out our last Maui family portrait with the Chee family!

Two Turned To Four – The Gregoroski Family’s Maui Portraits

It’s amazing how time flies. We had the pleasure of meeting this cute couple from the Gregoroski Family in 2009 for their engagement photos. Now, flash forward to present day and we find the lovebirds still head over heels, and now happily married. Having added two adorable little girls, their lives are so full of joy and laughter these days. It was hard to imagine them happier than the last time we saw them, on the cusp of the next chapter in their life. We stand corrected. This is what pure bliss looks like. Playing along the golden shore of Southside Beach, the darling quartet were all smiles as we captured the Maui Family Portraits that would forever freeze this moment in time. With precious little ones likes these, the memories of this time in their lives will be priceless moments to keep and cherish. We are so thrilled we got to catch up with such a fun couple, and see the family they’ve welcomed over the years. Thank you, Gregoroski Family, it was so wonderful welcoming you bac
