Greg and his team at A Maui Beach Wedding are awesome. Our wedding pictures are beautiful and we could not be more pleased. Once I found A Maui Beach Wedding and hired Greg as our photographer, planning the rest of our wedding was easy. Greg recommended a terrific beach, hair/make-up artist and officiant. We decided to go with the "Two Worlds" package so we could get photographs taken both in the glamorous Maui sunset and the bright, turquoise morning. The post-wedding photo shoot was especially fun... I felt like a supermodel. Greg is very calm, flexible, and has a great eye for gorgeous photos. I highly recommend Greg and his team for your Maui wedding!

Greg & his crew are wonderful!!! Greg is a fabulous photographer and a splendid person in general. He was very easy to get ahold of before, during & even after our wedding. Greg was very flexible with us and made us feel at ease. He does not try and rush through the events, but takes his time to make sure he captures everything he possibly can about your special day. Our wedding pictures turned out marvelous!! They are absolutely stunning and we could not have asked for more!! We had a smaller wedding, but with the amounts of pictures we recived and the attention to detail Greg and Jeffrey gave us, we felt high priority!! It was a wonderful day
& Greg made it even more special!!!

Everything you could ever hope for, and more! Greg and his crew were simply the best!!!! From our first email communication, I was blown away by how prompt, friendly, and helpful Greg was. From then on, the "above and beyond" customer service just got better and better... I can't say enough! I had a list of photo groupings, and on the day of the wedding- I left it behind at the Resort. Greg, being the professional that he is, had the list handy on his phone and read them out, organizing everyone and capturing just the right moments. Awesome!!! After family and friends headed off to brunch, we ventured out onto the rocks to get some unbelievable bride/groom photos, with waves crashing behind us. Our pictures are absolutely amazing!!!!! The quality was beyond expectation, and sincerely impressive. We chose a photography package and later decided to increase the allotted time. No problem! Greg was completely accommodating. Weeks later, we decided to add video. Greg was more than happy to arrange for the additional services! After everything went so perfect, we expressed our gratitude and thanks, but also threw one last curve ball... We decided on a whim to upgrade and request the edited video. Greg informed us that they typically shoot differently when they know it is for an "edited" package, but that he would put something nice together for us! We were confident it would be great. Seeing the edited video, slide show, and "music video" took me back to our wedding day, and I felt like I experienced it all over again! Greg and his crew truly strive to do what every couple wants- capture each beautiful and candid moment in a personalized way, and tell the story of your wedding day!!!! If you are reading reviews to find the perfect photographer for your wedding or event, you have found THE BEST :-) A Maui Beach Wedding exceeds expectation in every way- value, quality, customer service, and style! Hours after the ceremony, Greg emailed me a beautiful picture of my hubby and I out on the rocks in case we wanted something for our Facebook, or just to share with those who were not there. A truly exceptional experience, from start to finish!!! We could not have been happier, and I HIGHLY recommend A Maui Beach Wedding photography!

Affordable Maui Weddings — Top 5 Cost-Saving Tips

Honey, the Budget's On the Rise...Again

The average cost of a wedding in the United States is nearly $30,000. Although when you actually start planning your wedding you realize just how quickly costs can get out of control and exceed that average or your budget. Destination weddings such as those on Maui can be expensive, however, there are ways to keep costs down while still having your dream wedding.

Tip #1: Plan You Maui Wedding During Off-Peak Times

Maui is a beautiful tropical paradise so it's not surprising that so many people want to visit — especially couples. The busiest times on island are during the summer months of June, July and August as well as the winter months of December - March. Those peak times mean higher costs for nearly everything — flights, hotels, rental cars — even activities. However, if you plan your Maui wedding outside of those busy times (April, May, September, October) you can save lots of money.

We also have a travel and accommodations specialist on our team that can assist with flights, lodging, rental cars and group discounts.

Tip #2: Great Experiences Come Packaged

If you have ever been to a restaurant where the menu is a-la-carte, then you know how expensive the bill can be at the end of the night. The same principle applies to weddings. Instead of ordering flowers through one vendor, photography services through another and catering through a third vendor, consider bundling as many services together as possible. We have created a variety of Maui wedding packages that can work for a number of scenarios — from small beach weddings to large estate weddings. Maui wedding packages can include:
• A licensed officiant
• A photographer/videographer (number of photos depends on the package chosen)
• Any necessary permits (beach weddings require one)
• Marriage license appointment
• Flowers
• Hair and makeup services
• Musical accompaniments and entertainment
• Celebratory Toast
• Wedding cake
• Transportation
• Butterfly or Dove release
• Accommodations

Tip #3: Hire a Wedding Planner

When you build a house you hire a contractor. When the plumbing goes awry you hire a plumber. When the roof needs repair you hire a roofer. When you get married you...hire a wedding planner! Why? A reputable planner's goal is to make your dream wedding a reality while not busting the budget or adding to your stress level. A wedding planner also assists with the "day-of services," which include the set up and tear down of the ceremony and reception; timing of the ceremony, vendor confirmation as well as all of the little things that need tending to on your big day.

Tip #4: Don't Invite Every Person You Know

Usually, the larger the invite list the larger the cost. If you are trying to keep your wedding costs low, you many want to consider having a smaller Maui wedding. That way you can still enjoy some splurges here and there but because the invite list is small, your budget won't go out the window. However, if you come from a large family or have friends who won't take no for an answer, why not have a BBQ at a beach park instead of a formal sit down dinner? Costs are obviously much lower this way. Alternatively you can have a morning wedding followed by a light brunch, which is again more cost effective.

Tip #5: Don't Go Overboard on Decorations

Maui is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The natural scenery includes teal ocean waters, white sand beaches, blue skies, rainbows, lava fields, waterfalls and flowers of every color — some of which can only be found in Hawaii. The point? There's no need to go over the top with wedding decorations when you can get all of the above for free!
