Megan+David: Adventurous Maui Couples Photographer


A few months ago I launched a Facebook contest calling for adventurous couples who were willing to canoodle in bamboo or snuggle on a mountain top rather than splash around in the surf. I got nine different couples to enter and four of them won!

This couple was the first to have their session done. David was born and raised on Maui and met his sweetheart Megan on top of a mountain in Laos. Did you just read what I said? I mean, really–is this the beginning of a Nicholas Sparks novel or what? These two are not strangers to adventure so I was elated when I found out that they won!

Because David is from Upcountry Maui, I thought this location would be perfect. It boasts wide open fields, cool trees, and a stellar view of Maui on a clear day. The cloud ceiling was a bit low that day, but that certainly didn’t put a damper on these two.wailea maui sunset family photographer_0028wailea maui sunset family photographer_0033On our drive back down to Megan and David’s vehicle, we swung by some other great spots to snap some shots. Dave knew about this old abandon church; and I was pretty much in love at first site. Delapidated walls, flowering bushes and tall grass? Yes, please!

We pulled over one last time to catch the last little glimpse of the sunset. The light was warm and creamy and these two were down for another location–so why not? Maui is so amazing in that pulling over to the side of the road can sometimes be the best location!wailea maui sunset family photographer_0031
David and Megan: Your love story is truly inspiring. From adventures on the top of a mountain in Laos to your adventures in parenting and living on Maui–you truly embody what it’s like to love to the fullest.

Thank you for entering my contest, it was truly a pleasure!
