Are you planning a destination Wedding or Vow Renewal on the beaches of the Island of Maui?
There have been a few recent changes that have been mandated by the State of Hawaii in regards to
access for Beach Weddings. A permit is required and is the responsibility of the Officiant or your coordinater to obtain. As well your photographer is required to be permitted and insured with a liability policy that covers the State, the Department of Film can verify if your photographer is legally allowed to photograph you on the beach this applies to family portraits and model shoots as well.
Below I have added some links to help clarify what is needed.
For Brides and brides maids Ellys Formal wear has pressing and alteration services
as well as Beautiful Beach Wedding gowns worth taking a peek before you buy. For the Groom, you
may want to obtain your Formal wear here on Island rather than bringing it with you Elly's Formal
wear has a great selection of Tuxedos for the fancy dressing groom as well as typical Tropical Beach
Wedding gear for the Groom and groomsmen.
Vacation rental condos are a great way to be budget consious whether you are traveling as a couple
or a group you can usually find enough condos in one complex to accommodate you all. This allows
for eating in and saving even more as eating out every day can get pricey. Here are a couple of
properties that have a rentals available, the main websites have loads to offer.
I hope that this is helpful information in planning your destination wedding, Maui family vacation and that you choose my photography services for your wedding photogrphy, family vacation portraits, senior portraits or special event.

*Beach Permits - The State of Hawaii has implemented new laws regarding Wedding Ceremonies on the beach. You may get married on the grass fronting the beach without the need for a permit. Ceremony's in the sand do require a permit and each person providing service for your Wedding must have a copy of the beach permit or risk a fine of $5000 set forth by the State. Tino Rosete and his wife are very helpful in aquiring this permit should you have the desire to Marry in the sand.(see link to his page below under Officiants) As well your Maui Photographer is required to be licensed and permitted by the state to photograph on the Beach. I am licensed and permitted to such photographing.
