We are a small team of friendly, talented photographers who provide top-notch Maui Photography, specializing in Family, Maternity, Couples, Engagements and Weddings, as well as High School Senior and Graduate Portraits. We shoot on location, usually at one of the gorgeous beaches Maui has to offer, but can also come to your hotel/resort. We are based in Lahaina, but also travel to the Kihei-Wailea area. We offer both early morning and sunset sessions. We use a combination of natural light and off camera flash, a must in order to capture those gorgeous Maui sunsets and the bright, tropical colors that the morning sessions have to offer. We love COLOR and our photographs are vivid and bright.

These photographs will trigger memories of salty air and sandy toes so that once you’ve left the island of Maui, the island will never leave you. Take a look through our galleries, check out our packages and please contact us with any questions. We can't wait to hear from you!

Such a fantastic experience with Jelena!! She is friendly, creative, and a great photographer! She captured everything I wanted for my 10yr anniversary photo shoot with my husband! She also made sure that we were happy and kept asking if there were any other poses or areas we wanted our pictures taken. Her passion for photography and your happiness with her work really comes across! Capture Aloha is worth every penny.

We are so thankful for Capture Aloha Photography. We were in Maui for a family vacation and we coordinated a shoot with Becky in advance. Alandra was our photographer and she was fantastic. We have four daughters and she took amazing sunset pictures. Her attitude and and passion to capture the best shots were outstanding. If you are looking for a photographer in Maui, there is absolutely no reason to look anywhere else other than Capture Aloha. Customer service is off the charts, incredible quality and people who really care about capturing great family memories. Thank you Becky and Alandra!

"she took amazing sunset pictures"

We booked a photo session with Jelena of Capture Aloha to take our first professional photos as a family of 3. First of all, the portrait photography photos were perfect! We could not have asked for more with this photo shoot! These images will last a lifetime- they are magazine quality! Jelena was extremely friendly and accommodating, and her love for her job and working with kids truly showed throughout the session.  I'm also impressed with how quick and easy it was to communicate with Summer via Yelp to book a session. I would definitely recommend Capture Aloha, and Jelena especially, to anyone looking to get some fantastic family pics on Maui's west side!

A wedding at the westin maui resort

Little did my girlfriend know, I had been planning on proposing to her while on our trip as it was her "dream to get engaged in Hawaii"! I knew I couldn't disappoint and went searching for a top notch photographer. Our photographer, Alandra, was AMAZING! She blended in with bystanders as to not be noticed and she captured the whole moment perfectly! She was so kind and sweet and really went above and beyond for us! Becky was also very instrumental in making everything go as planned! She was very professional and very discrete during our email exchanges as to not make my girlfriend curious! These ladies did an absolutely amazing and perfect job! My Fiancée and I are so blessed that they could capture and be a part of our special memory/moment! I would highly recommend their services! Thanks again Becky and Alandra!

A suprise engagment at Kapalua Bay

Jelena took our engagement photos at the Andaz in Wailea.  There were concerns for rain. Jelena touched base with us multiple times over the week and offered alternative dates to ensure we could have the photo session. Jelena was extremely professional and pleasant. Most importantly, the photos were beautiful. Jelena is excellent at using the natural beauty and light of Maui to create a truly wonderful photo. Communication with both Capture Aloha and Jelena was thorough and easy. I would certainly recommend Jelena and Capture Aloha for a photo session while on Maui.

My husband surprised me while we were on our babymoon in Maui with a maternity photo shoot and it was amazing! The location we took our pictures at was the perfect blend of trees and beach. Our photographer, Jelena, was awesome! We were very comfortable with her and she made taking pictures easy. We could not be more happy with our pictures, they are beautiful! I've had so many complements on them! I would definitely recommend Capture Aloha and Jelena to anyone wanting maternity picture taken in beautiful Maui!

A maternity session at kapalua bay

Unbelievably happy with the pictures Alandra took for our family photo session in Maui!! Becky responded to our inquiry within an hour and all the pre-photo info was direct and easy to follow. Alandra met us a mile from where we're staying at Kapalua Beach for a sunset session. She took the most beautiful photos that we will cherish forever!! She handled our large group and our very grumpy 4-year old with grace and humor. Our pictures were delivered in only one week, and downloading and ordering photos was straightforward.  So impressed that we were able to book such awesome photographers two weeks before our vacation. Highly recommend Capture Aloha for locals and visitors alike. I actually wish we lived closer so they could continue to take pictures of our family in the future! Thank you so much Alandra and Capture Aloha!
