I specialize in Wedding Ceremonies as well as Trash The Dress Sessions and Family Portraits. I only release high quality, edited images.

Maui wedding ministersReverend Darci Kalaki

“Being a Hawaii weddings minister on Maui is an incredible gift. I am thankful every day for this opportunity. For many years Maui has been alive in my heart as I walk the beaches, feel the tides and listen to the music of the ocean. 10 years ago I had my own wedding here on Maui a few days into one of Maui’s biggest storms in recent history. Reverend Kolleen had scouted our intended beach and found that it was not usable from the storm. The date was very important to us for sentimental reasons so I understand you when you tell me the same thing. With knowledge of the local geography, she found us a new beach in time for a sunset wedding on that same day. With inspiration from ministers such as her and education form local Hawaiians, I use this knowledge, respect and ethics to best serve you, my clients, and offer them aloha for their support.”
