Just you two

What’s better than that?

creative and free-spirited

full of love and joy

completely free of anyone else’s expectations

So what would be your perfect Hawaiian day? Cliff-side vows? Intimate, emotional photos amidst jungle greenery? A quiet slice of beach? Whatever it is, I want you to leave that wedding stress back on the mainland and get psyched for your best day.

I’ll show you everything I love about Maui and help guide you toward the exact elopement you want.

How can I help plan your day?

“I can’t emphasize enough how comfortable he made us feel – it was such a relaxed, fun day, and he set that up from our first communication. It felt like we were just hanging out with a friend and we happened to also be getting married.”

— Erin

How it works

Kayla + Aleff

01. I want to hear from you

First thing’s first, let’s talk. I put my whole heart into helping you create your perfect Maui elopement, so I want to hear your ideas. I’ll help however I can—I can be as involved as you want me to be—and always share my local recommendations. I’ve lived here for two decades, so I know plenty of chill spots and epic views to make your day unforgettable. Some of my couples come to Hawaii early to celebrate their engagement—a perfect time to snag some couples photos.

02. Your experience

This is important to me: Your experience is yours. I’m not the sort of photographer to force my ideas on you. Instead, I give you gentle direction to provoke moments, never poses. I help you relax into your day with easy conversation and allow you to just be yourselves. Laugh, explore, snuggle, love. I’ll be along for the ride and with my camera always at the ready. We’ll have the freedom to explore and create different styles of photos, but the focus is always on you.

Elopement photography begins at $1500

03. Images that last

You’ve just done something amazing, so you deserve true, natural images that showcase it. I always edit true to color and with an eye toward the emotional story. I think—and I hope you’ll agree—that this approach results in organic, emotional imagery that will last generations. Each of my couples receives around 60+ photos per hour of coverage, and you can expect your fully edited gallery 6-12 weeks after your elopement.

Coverage options for one, three or five hours

I can’t wait to welcome you to Hawaii!

“I highly recommend Rodrigo and his photography! He shot our elopement ceremony on Maui and we couldn’t be happier with the work that he did. Not only did the photos turn out beautifully, but working with him was such a pleasure. My husband and I are not ones for doing professional photos, but Rodrigo made us feel so relaxed and at ease while having our photos taken. I was blown away at how many photos we received back (over 400!). I can’t say enough good things about the quality of Rodrigo’s work and the service that he provides. Mahalo Rodrigo for capturing our wedding day perfectly!”
