Ben + Pam | Maui, HI

January 24, 2009

She was his best friends sister. 
She is smart, independent and beautiful. 
She asked him out!!

And everyone at their intimate Maui wedding bragged of their role in getting them together.




Pam takes a moment to realize ‘the moment’ is actually here.


Ben and his wedding party pray together before the ceremony.






We went to the ‘Secret Beach’ (that really is the name) for photos. For most of them I was standing in the surf feeling the warm waves and silky sand between my toes. This is how to work!







The ceremony and reception were held at the beautiful Seawatch Restaurant in Wailea, Maui, HI.


This group really knew how to have a good time, at least until 10 when the island actually shuts down. Getting to bed early was a treat since we all needed to be fresh for the ‘day after’ shoot!






Relaxed, stress-free and married Ben and Pam took on the ‘day after’ shoot with ease. This must have been one of the best photo shoots of my career. How can I complain when I get to wade and roll in the warm maui waves.





Congrats Ben and Pam!! I don’t think I can say enough Thank You’s for bringing me to your wedding. It was wonderful to be present and an indescribable honor to be your photographer!

To everyone in the blogosphere, there is more of Ben and Pam to come in a Slideshow. Currently I’m still enRoute.


This is me and the bride!

    Gorgeous Photos. Love the “trash the dress” style of the day after shots! Man I wish digital and such cool ideas were around when I got married 9 years ago!

    Fantastic! I have to say the praying shot of Ben and then the last ‘day after’ shot are my true favorites. I love how free Pam is in that last shot, she really looks like a hot wife! Very free feeling. I’m so glad the trip went so well and that Pam and Ben were blessed to have you there and to capture these beautiful images.
