Maui, a Hawaiian paradise, boasts stunning landscapes, from lush volcanic slopes to sun-drenched beaches. With cascading waterfalls and vibrant coral reefs, it's a haven for nature lovers. The island's cultural heartbeat echoes the spirit of aloha, inviting visitors to experience traditional ceremonies and the rhythmic sway of hula. Maui's beauty is not just in its scenery but in the warm embrace of its people, making every visit a memorable journey into Pacific tranquility.
This is maui
Hey there, it’s Rodrigo! Super stoked that you're here. I’ve been capturing moments on Maui since 2011, and my journey kicked off with shooting my first wedding (yep, for free) in that same year and it all just snowballed from there. I’ve been clicking away at weddings, couples, and families all over Hawaii, and I seriously love what I do. My photography vibe is a mix of romance and documentary – aiming to create galleries that play out like a movie, telling the beautiful story of a wedding day from start to finish.
I’m stoked to share the nitty-gritty of my process and spill the beans on how I’ve kept this photography gig thriving for the past 12 years. I can't wait to meet y'all
My topics for the workshop will be:
- Walking you through my workflow. Both from client first contact til gallery delivery and wedding day (from when I arrive for getting ready photos til the end of the day)
- How to stay inspired and fresh after shooting weddings for years.
- Pricing and how to charge for your services
- Website and branding - How as a wedding photographer we have to brand ourselves at a more personal way.
- hello; greetings.
- friendly; hospitable; welcoming: The aloha spirit prevails throughout the islands.
I have been photographing weddings for 10+ years, I am passionate about capturing my couples in a way that highlights their unique chemistry. Not one couple is the same and creating a fun space for them to be comfortable in their skin while in front of my camera is a priority.
Below are the topics I'll be covering:
- Framing and composition. I will touch on a bunch of the basics of framing and composition first, some of the rules to keep in mind while taking photos. I will talk about the use of lead lines in your images, the meaning of it and how to bring more attention to your subject ( or direct the viewers eyes to where YOU want them to go within the frame)
- Distractions and how they can diminish your work as well as using objects in the background to once again enhance your subject. We will dive into how to position your subject in your frame and how to use all of these things together in a way that can elevate your photo from an ok image to a gorgeous visually pleasing piece of art.

Hey y’all! I’m Naomi. I'm an outdoorsy human who is absolutely in love with adventure elopements and small weddings. Nothing makes me happier than a day filled with adventures in wild places getting my feet dirty, breathing the fresh air, and connecting with like minded humans. Whether it’s in the mountains, the forest, or on the beach I am here for ALL of it! I’m a mountain gal but I’m also a beach gal, so I split my time between Alaska, Oregon, and Maui. I’ve received a lot of help from other photographers throughout the years growing my business and I’m so excited to finally share the knowledge I’ve gained with you!
In the workshop I'll be covering client Experience and turning your clients into friends
Why is this important? You will feel more fulfilled, you'll capture epic photos and help create an elopement day that flows easily because your clients trust you completely. Then you'll get 5 star reviews, receive amazing feedback, and clients will be referring you to other future clients!
In the beginning of my career I was shooting assembly line photography in Hawaii and it felt boring and meaningless. I knew I could do a better job serving my clients and feel more fulfillment with my career. So I hired a mentor and he helped me develop the key steps that help me create a relationship with my couples. I haven't received negative feedback since I started implementing this method and it's changed my business in a huge way!
