With a breathtaking view of the ocean from Molokini Lookout at Gannon’s Wailea and an abundance of love in their hearts, Nikki and Derek couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful beginning to their marriage.
Nikki and Derek opted to do First Look photos at The Grand Wailea before heading over to Gannon’s for their gorgeous ceremony and reception, and their sweet First Look moment was one of my favorites to date! Derek’s anticipation of seeing Nikki was just the sweetest ever, as you’ll see in the photos below! 🙂 It was such a cute part of their wedding day, and I loved being able to capture that moment in time for these two lovebirds!
The day also came together flawlessly, thanks to the help of the lovely ladies at Maui’s Angels Destination Weddings & Events! It’s always such a pleasure getting to work with this talented team!
Nikki and Derek, I hope you always remember and treasure these moments! Getting to work with you two was such a blast. It was a perfect day and I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
“If you’re looking for your Maui wedding photographer, your search should stop here. Caitlin is absolutely fantastic in every way possible. From her gorgeous photos to her personality to her willingness to help, she is everything and more we could have wanted in a photographer to capture our big day.”
“We booked Caitlin through our wedding planner. Our first interaction with Caitlin was an extremely prompt, personal, and detailed e-mail outlining her services and asking us detailed questions about our expectations, family dynamics, and many other intricate details that I would have never thought to address. After I responded to her initial e-mail with her questions answered I received another prompt, personal e-mail in return. Caitlin was always extremely easy to get ahold of (which means a lot when planning a Maui wedding from Arizona) and more than willing to help.”
“On our wedding day, Caitlin arrived early and began right away. She was organized, diligent, and tremendously sweet. She operated without any hesitation and very smoothly. The best part of her photography is that you can tell she genuinely cares about her clients. She made sure that we got every photo we wanted.”
“Caitlin was also conscious of if someone looked awkward or just not right in a photo (for example, my mother-in-law’s bra strap was showing in a family photo. She took the time to help her adjust her shawl so that it would be covered.) She didn’t miss a moment and there is not one photo I would have changed. Caitlin went above and beyond to capture every moment just perfectly.”
“Caitlin promised to have our photos completed in 6-8 weeks of the wedding with a sneak peak in a couple of days. When I thought of “sneak peek” I figured 2-3 photos but I was shocked when she sent us not 2, not 3, but 20 photos as a sneak peek! There was a photo from just about every part of the day and they were BEAUTIFUL! Caitlin delivered out wedding album within six weeks! All followed by a handwritten thank you note from Caitlin that we received in the mail shortly after.”
“Caitlin is not only an extremely talented photographer, but also a genuine, caring, and sweet person to work with. She cares about her clients deeply and commits her craft to capture their big day in the best way possible. Caitlin, thank you. You allowed us to remember the best day of our lives thus far.”
