Tara and Kody chose to have their Hawaii elopement surrounded by the tropical paradise of Maui. The natural beauty of the island complimented their intimate ceremony. They opted for a film add-on to their elopement package to make their day even more memorable. With the help of a professional videographer, they captured every moment of their wedding ceremony and the small details of the day. This film was a beautiful, lifelong keepsake and also allowed them to share their day with friends and family who couldn’t be there.

Tara and Kody’s elopement took place in Kapalua. They went with our Complete Collection package, which has an add-on for an hour of photography coverage for getting ready and first-look photos. This is a great option for a complete elopement story and bridges that gap between intimate elopements and wedding day coverage. They got ready at the Ritz Carlton in the same area. When we finished at the Ritz, we headed to Ironwoods for their ceremony at the cliffs overlooking the ocean.

Ironwoods is one of our most popular locations due to its beauty and easy access. The vibe is always incredible and serene. These guys had a few family members attending, which made it super special. We like to say it’s an elopement because it can be just the couple or a few family members. Following their ceremony, we ended their session at Honolua Bay, where we captured some sunset and romantic jungle photos. If you’re not feeling a traditional wedding, I highly recommend looking into options for all-in-one elopement packages. Handing over the big tasks can help take the stress from planning so that you can enjoy the importance of your day in peace.


“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 (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!”
