Wedding photography on Maui has witnessed many changes over the years since 2004 when we first opened our doors into the wedding business, we have seen countless wedding coordinators come and go from all of the hotels and resorts on Maui, and we’ve seen some resorts open and close as private condominiums. We’ve photographed at all of the hotels on Maui Family portrait photography and have enjoyed all the gorgeous screens and wedding designs for the ceremonies and evening receptions.
Wedding photography on Maui today at the resorts is more political than ever, and most hotels resorts wish to take 20 percent from all photographers and some take another 20 percent from customers on top of that. So 40% extra fees by going through the hotels.
We’ve always found that a personal house or event from the hotels are more enjoyed by most people only because you may select the photographer along with other vendors you like and not the hotel photographers who are restricted in creativity because of the resort’s insurance policy and rigorous guidelines. Bride holding flowers and cutting the cake and if the photographer goes out he can get inspired and place the flowers on the shore and revolve around the aroma and have the bride and groom out of focus in the background and them dip a little. Boom… that’s about as imaginative as it gets.
Likely a few of the rudest wedding coordinators we have worked with have been out of Maui resort resorts and they come and go often, so perhaps a number are no longer there. We like to hear all of the great stories but sadly, there are many bad ones, so take care when booking a marriage and also please do your homework and read the reviews correctly.
Wedding photography on Maui has existed for several years and we’re fortunate enough to be able to work on the top beaches on the planet. There are several good photographers and wonderful vendors on the internet who are excellent to work with and have better prices than the hotels in most cases, so I am certain that you’ll find a wedding photographer on Maui that fits your style. Weddings on Maui have dropped over recent years due to the rigorous rules from the DLNR and the exceptionally overpriced resorts, brides have been shopping in different countries and states.
