Jen and Tyler’s adventure elopement in Maui was absolutely incredible – helicopters, a beachside picnic, waterfalls, and then vows at 10,000 ft on Haleakala – how could it have been better?
Well instead of me boring you with the details of Jenn and Tyler’s adventure elopement photographer in Maui, I’ll let Jenn recount the day for you! She says it best anyway!
How did you feel when we were planning your adventure elopement? Why did you choose Maui? And why me?
I was so nervous and felt so overwhelmed trying to plan the day I had been dreaming about since a little girl. I knew I wanted everything to be perfect, as we all do. I kept contemplating a big wedding with all the bells and whistles and having all our loved ones there. Then when I started digging into it. The cost was absolutely ridiculous…. and for what?… stuff and props that didn’t really matter. So, I started researching. I knew I wanted to honeymoon on Maui, then I came across you, Angie. And your AMAZING photography skills! I started following you on Instagram, reading all the comments, and reviews. No one compared! And believe me, I spent a good year on this! I reached out to you, made the biggest decision of my life that day, and went for it! Was I nervous… YES! But you reassured me it was all taken care of and will be spectacular.
We decided to invest in you, on a trip about us, and spend the day of our wedding as an adventure. And you did just that! You made our day so special, and stress-free, and it was better than we imagined!! I’m still blown away and very thankful you set up our picnic on the beach!!! You knew I wanted one so bad and made it happen. Not only that made it even more special with our video wishes. It brings tears to my eyes every time I think about it.
I’ve heard from other friends, that their wedding day turned into more about other people than them. And they barely even saw or spent quality time together on their day. I’m so glad we chose to do it our way and invest our money into an adventure, instead of stuff and making it about us. We spend the whole day, just us two, and met our close loved ones at the end of the day for our vows and wouldn’t have done it any other way. NO REGRETS!!
My favorite part of my adventure elopement in Maui
Idk if I have a favorite part of our day bc it was all so magical!! Your team was absolutely perfect!!
Donna was so personable and my make-up and hair were perfect! As I was definitely nervous about that, bc I’m very picky about my hair.
I’m so glad I took your advice and went with colors for my bouquet!! You were NEVER wrong about anything.. like you know what you were doing or something… LOL! It was again, better than I could’ve imagined! And our cake… I have you to thank for this as well! Even on short notice, you helped make it happen, and was perfect!! So delicious too!!
The helicopter ride over an island, seeing turtles and whales… a dream. Hiking through a rainforest in a wedding gown & heels!? Who does that!? We do!! I have to say those were some of my favorite shots along with Haleakala. Driving up above the clouds on a dormant volcano. HOW EPIC!!! Vows close to God, our first dance, and eating our cake on Haleakala! I mean WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Hiking through the crater… it was out of this world! There wasn’t one bad picture that day. We would not have got these shots having a normal big wedding. These were will cherish for a lifetime. And the memories.
I didn’t want the day to end! It was more than perfect. It was a real-life fairy tale come true! And I have you to thank for that!! We are so blessed to have found you!
You couldn’t have done a better job, Angie! Tyler and I felt so comfortable with everyone the whole day. Brea and Caleb were a hoot! Peter was perfect for our vows, so personable. There was no awkwardness at all. I would recommend this to anyone. If you are worried about not including family and friends…. this is your day! Not theirs…
What advice do you have for other people choosing to elope on Maui?
if I can give any advice at all, make it about you two! You only get one day and it goes by so fast. If they want to be a part of your day, those ppl will make it happen. Trust me! You do you boo!
Our wedding album and portraits are one of a kind! You’ll not find anything better than Angie’s. That’s a PROMISE! Do not hesitate, choose Angie all day, every day!
I can just ramble about how AMAZING you made our day, YOU are as a person, your coordinator skills, and your photography skills… WOW!!
Jen and Tyler – Thank you for choosing me as your Maui adventure elopement photographer. Your day is absolutely what dreams were made of. It couldn’t have been more perfect and I feel honored to have been a part of it all!
Thank you to our wonderful vendors that made this day possible:
Haleakala Wedding I first touched based with Lydia and Pascal back in October last year. Lydia had stumbled across my Kaupo Wedding that I did in 2016 and loved the feel of it! Lydia and Pascal were obsessed with the wide open vistas and raw beauty of East Maui. But it seems that Maui had…
This was one of those weekends that I will never, ever, as long as I live. I had just finished up with a workshop in Arizona and was currently visiting my family in Michigan when called my husband and he told me the plan. Only a few other folks knew about it and it was…
If you would have told me a few months ago that I would go from a fully booked wedding photographer for an unemployed former wedding photographer, I would have scoffed. But in a few short months, we have seen the wedding industry absolutely plummet. Currently, it’s looking like tourists won’t be able to come back…
This Kukio Beach elopement on Big Island was everything an elopement should be and so, SO much more. But I feel like you need some background on this wedding and this amazing couple to appreciate it in its entirety! I met Jake forever ago. It seems like another lifetime – but to be real it…
SWEET BEACH ELOPEMENT IN MAUI Megan and Alex came all the way from Canada to tie the knot on a beach in Hawaii. Before we locked in the date, we made sure to set up a Skype call so I could touch base with them and learn more about their vision for the day. I…
Haleakala Elopement No one knew about Michael and Khim’s Haleakala elopement besides the couple, the minister, and me. These two came from California where she is a nurse and he is a tattoo artist. They wanted something intimate and romantic. They loved the idea of being above the clouds. The plan was that we would…
