Dream Destination Elopement in Maui

Ashley & Stephen are such a sweet + down to earth couple. I first met up with them in San Francisco, California on a trip over and took their engagement photos. That day was so much fun and the photos turned out absolutely STUNNING. After we finished shooting their engagements, we planned their EPIC Elopement in Maui.

Their Love Story

I got to know them and asked them questions about how they first met and this is what Ashley said,

“We were introduced after graduation by mutual friends at a New Year’s party & the rest is history! I always used to worry that meeting my life partner at such a young age would make us later feel like we didn’t get to ‘experience’ life in our 20’s but that’s not nearly the case at all. We’re now in our mid-twenties, just bought our first home, getting married, & will start building our family in a few more years! I never imagined myself eloping.”

“I always pictured myself having a big wedding but the closer we get to our big day, the more excited & peace I feel in my heart knowing that this is exactly how we were meant to do things. Our day will be focused on us, our love, our happiness, our future, & I cannot wait to seal the beginning of forever with my soulmate & my everything. Stephen is the greatest man I know & I can’t wait to see the beautiful life that we create together!”

Private vows in a lush jungle and a cliffside elopement ceremony

The photos of their Elopement were NEXT LEVEL and just a surreal experience. We started adventuring through the back roads and the lush greenery. Then, we found a hidden nook for them to exchange their vows and have their first look with each other in private. It was the most perfect elopement in Maui.

The cliffside ceremony with their family present was so simple, sweet and perfect. We ended of the evening with a GORGEOUS sunset that turned the entire sky pink & orange. Those hues are something I’ll never forget and luckily they can look back at these photos for years and years to come! So excited for their new journey! xx
