“As a child, growing up in Hana, my only connection to the outside world was through the stories of travelers, or the stacks of magazines my parents kept around. It was through these pictures of distant surf breaks and portraits of ancient cultures that I fell in love with photography. Since then I have followed my passion and made it my career. After receiving a photojournalism degree from Southern Oregon University, I blended my love of photography and travel, documenting the people and places that surrounded me. Today I am blessed, living at home on Maui, creating images that are cherished for a lifetime, and making new friends along the way.” - Kaua



Maui native Ka'ua brings to life the raw beauty of the island in every photograph. With a background in photojournalism and over 10 years in the wedding industry, Ka'ua will document your day with classic style. Professional and easy-going, he will never miss an opportunity to capture those moments that create amazing memories.

Ka'ua = Aloha. :) He was the perfect wedding photographer for us. He was so great to work with. We all felt very comfortable and he blended right in with our family and friends. He has a God given gift that shows through in how well he captures each moment. When we received our 'sneak peek' pictures we were completely speechless. Each time we'd swipe to a next picture we'd be like, Oh wow that's a really nice one then next, Oh my gosh this is a really nice one too! It never ended!!! We have so many compliments on all our pictures! We definitely made the right choice! These memories are going to live with us forever. We're so happy with such great quality and outstanding service.

We absolutely LOVED working with Kaua! Not only is his work amazing, he himself is an amazing person to work with. Finding the right photographer you can rely on to capture the essence and beauty of a wedding can be a stressful task for any bride--especially for a destination wedding. But after just a few moments with Kaua, we knew we were in good hands! He works masterfully with angles and lighting to capture moments in the most creative and elegant ways possible. We loved the way he interacted with us and our guests to make us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entire wedding. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much they loved our photographer! He captures emotion at its purest and most candid moments, so that when you look back, you can easily relive those precious moments. Kaua definitely helped make our day feel even more special, and we're so incredibly happy with our choice of using Kaua as our photographer to capture one of the most important days of our lives. We highly recommend him!

Kaua was an absolute delight to work with during the planning process and also on the day of our Olowalu Plantation House wedding! He took our engagement photos when we traveled to Maui to meet our vendors. I had been up in the air between a few photographers and wanted to feel really “sure” about my choice since their aesthetics were pretty different. After talking to Kaua about what I had envisioned- he NAILED the engagement shoot. Our pictures are pretty epic and very special. He is truly a photography ninja- obviously there were portrait shots that we were aware of, but he also captured so many spontaneous moments throughout the day. He was never intrusive- such a kind and warm personality to have on your wedding day. My husband doesn’t like to smile with his teeth, and Kaua was able to nab a few shots of a full on smile! He works a lot with our wedding planner- Lori from Tropical Maui Weddings, so we got an awesome deal on our package. Not only is he very reasonable with his pricing, he delivers the highest caliber work. I am ecstatic with our photos- he’s already sent us a sneak peek of the final wedding album, and if that’s all I ever see- it’ll be enough. We have too many good shots to choose from! What a great problem to have!

We were more than thrilled with the work of Kaua and his team. Previewing his work on his website it was clear to us that Kaua was incredibly gifted at capturing unique moments. When we got to see the photos from our wedding, we were over the moon with the quality of each beautifully composed image. Kaua is very affable and professional and he and his team are very responsive. Chris & I wholeheartedly recommend Kaua to capture your special day! We know you will not be disappointed and better yet, I am sure he will exceed your expectations!

Kaua is really awesome. I planned my wedding from the mainland and the entire process was super easy and stress free. Kaua is really laid back and easy to talk to. I was worried I might be awkward in front of the camera, but he makes you feel completely comfortable. He makes different suggestions for poses and settings, and just captures beautiful shots. I've only seen the preview so far, but I am super impressed and can't wait to get the final shots. I would recommend Kaua to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in Maui :D

We had an amazing experience with Kaua Photography!! It started with a get to know each other Skype date… That told us that Kaua cared very deeply for his clients & their desires, but we weren't prepared for just how creative he is or the clever little details he captured of our wedding day! Our wedding pictures look like they should be sold with the frames in the stores! Absolutely spectacular!

We are thoroughly pleased with our experience & we would highly recommend Kaua Photography to anyone getting married in Hawaii!

We looked at a lot of wedding photographers on Maui before we found Ka’ua. The quality of his work just shone, and we immediately wanted to meet him. We had a holiday a year previous and were able to meet him in Hana, he even took some photos of us on the beach for fun – they were gorgeous.
Not only is Ka’ua got a lovely soul and we connected easily with him, he also has a very natural approach to photography – no awkward poses, or cheesy compositions – he captures whatever is happening in that moment – which made us feel at ease and relaxed.
.

I’ve just returned from our honeymoon and have received some samples of the full album from him and every photo is fantastic. We love all the photos, he has a natural style and captures intimate moments in every shot. Its actually made it difficult for us to choose one for our thank you cards. One of my colleagues remarked that many of these photos are so beautiful they belong in a bridal magazine!
Thank you Ka’ua for our down to earth spirit, beautiful photos and fantastic eye for the emotional and real photos!

Kaua did such an amazing job at our wedding I'm beyond words! He was everywhere and captured all the right moments at all the right times. He's very down to earth and just great to work with. I didn't feel posed at all and everything just felt so natural - the end results looked that way too. We got almost 200 previews with watermarks within DAYS of the wedding (amazing, who does that?!) and my final product in colour, antique, black and white versions 2 months later. I'm so glad we chose Kaua. Friendly, responsive and professional. Thank you for being awesome, Kaua!

Kaua shared a unique journey with us as our wedding photographer and he will always hold a special place in our hearts! The journey began in Maui when my now husband was planning to propose and hoped to capture the moment on film. He called around the island and was given the recommendation of Kaua. He then proceeded to coordinate with Kaua to secretly meet in Hana at a breathtaking waterfall that Kaua suggested. The proposal went off without a hitch and Kaua took the most beautiful candid photos we could have imagined, but we didn’t stop there! We loved Kaua’s work so much that we had to have him for our wedding shots on the big day…So we flew him to the San Francisco Bay Area where he was not only our wedding photographer but an honored guest! Kaua is a true professional. He knows exactly what to capture and his artistic eye is unparalleled! He is truly a genius! I looked beautiful in every single photograph he took and our wedding pictures are nothing short of amazing! Everyone swears it was the best wedding they have ever been to and Kaua was able to capture the spirit and the beauty of our joyous event from start to finish with fantastic flair! I recommend him to anyone who wants stunningly beautiful photographs and magical moments captured on film. It will be the best decision you make in planning your event!
