Above and beyond.
That would sum up the photography services provided to us by Maolo Photography on our destination wedding. They captured every detail and every moment of that gorgeous day. As a bride, there's so many things running in my head and at the end of the day, I was thinking- I should have had them take this or take that. The day just went by fast! So to my surprise, when I got the digital files ( two months was quick!), I found everything I was hoping to see and more! They did a marvelous job - our family and friends couldn't stop raving about our photos - thanks to Mariemil and Paolo.
In the interest of full disclosure, I do know them prior to hiring them. But in the wedding world where choices abound, we made sure to do our research, particularly in Maui where the wedding was held. After working with them for our engagement shoot, we knew we didn't have to search further. The engagement photos are quite iconic, and thankfully they took on the destination wedding job because they captured so many beautiful memories.
I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for topnotch photography service. Quality and service beyond one's expectation.
Aloha and mahalo Maolo Photography!

We were introduced to Maolo''s photography through a friend. When we sat down with Mariemil and Paolo to look at their work and packages, we immediately decided not to look no where else! They knew what we wanted. We were never in to traditional pics, especially for our wedding day. Nonetheless, they managed to make both our traditional families happy as well as our modern selves. They were always professional and well prepared, totally creative ideas for picture shots, and they always made sure to include our ideas.
Our families and friends were all more than happy with the pics and all the newly engaged are planning to go with MAOLO PHOTOGRAOHY! Never again will we go back to cheap pics for important lifelong memorable events.

I highly recommend Maolo Photography. A co-worker recommended her and when I saw her work, I was sold! I knew she was the one to do my wedding pictures. All of the magazine articles that I read says your suppose to interview at least 3 photographers to compare what they have to offer. Once I met with her, I knew that I didn't need to do that. The photographer is so friendly, makes you feel comfortable and goes with the flow. The price is VERY reasonable and the quality is AMAZING! I am and still so HAPPY that I went with Maolo Photography! My pictures are beautiful and I get GREAT feedback from everyone!

Mariemil and Paolo were absolutely amazing! They were the photographers in my brother's wedding and from that point on, we had no doubt that they were going to be our photographers. As soon as we booked our venue, we contacted Mariemil to make sure she was available--in all honesty, we would have moved our wedding date if they weren't. Choosing your photographer is one of the most important choices you have to make, and with Maolo, we knew we wouldn't have to worry about a thing. Their vision, creativity, originality, professionalism, and responsiveness to our needs were unlike anyone else. Our engagement pictures were so creative and our wedding photos were even more incredible. They captured some of the most beautiful moments in our wedding and thanks to them, we will always remember and cherish that day. I can't say how much they have exceeded our expectations. We HIGHLY recommend them and you will not be disappointed!!!!!

Words simply can’t describe the level of professionalism and amazing work of Maolo Photography. Choosing the RIGHT photographer for our wedding was extremely crucial. We looked and stalked through hundreds of wedding photography websites and blogs but nothing captured our eyes, trust, and pocket until we came across www.maolo.net. Looking at their blog, we knew we had to meet them. Our first consultation with Mariemil and Paolo went extremely well, especially the fact that we found out that they too, had a yorkie. We would have to admit, that was a selling factor for us since we have two adorable yorkies that we love dearly. Their artistic photography and friendly personalities were an added bonus! From the start, we were impressed by Mariemil and Paolo’s talented eye for genuine moments, commitment to capturing beautiful photographs, and easy going attitude. We knew right there and then they would capture the style, theme, and mood we wanted for our special day. Indeed, we were right. Our pictures went above and beyond our expectations. They captured the type of photography we wanted in our engagement and wedding day pictures. We loved how they made us extremely comfortable in front of the camera and made each session extremely fun without being intrusive and making us pose for each shot. We truly love the candid and artistic shots, as well as the romantic side that is captured in all of our pictures. Did we mention we barely had to fake our poses for each shot? How many photographers out there can do that and come out with photos that really capture the moment? NOT TOO MANY! We highly recommend Maolo Photography for anyone that wants their day truly felt through their pictures. That’s what our pictures did for us. We felt every emotion we had during our special day and we are extremely thankful that Maolo Photography captured each moment for us to remember for a lifetime. 5 stars are not enough to rank their style, professionalism, personality and originality because they deserve way more than that!

Mariemil and Paolo are really great in what they do...PHOTOGRAPHY! They were both a breeze to work with and Mariemil is really patient and very flexible. She has the eye for details and very creative. My wedding was this past Saturday and some of our pictures were ready to view on their website the next day. Talk about fast! The whacky booth that they offer adds a fun touch to the wedding or any event at that!

We hired Maolo to do both our engagement session and wedding and they were simply fantastic to work with. Our photos came out wonderfully and the quality of service and products they provide are top notch. They were professional, responsive, and prompt. We didn't give them much direction as to what kind of shots we wanted, yet they easily picked up the details, ambiance and emotion behind the event through their photography. I would highly recommend them to any of my friends and family.
