Andaz Maui at Wailea
If you seek a wedding captured on soft sand with pristine ocean views or family photos with dramatic sunsets then look no further than the artists at Pacific Dream Photography. Rated one of Maui’s top resorts, the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort provides our photographers with lush grounds, unique architecture, and stunning Hawaiian views perfect for capturing all your wedding and vacation memories.
Once in a while, we have only one person show up for the beach photo session at our Hawaii locations. Some people just can't miss the amenity of the photo shoot we offer for the guests of the luxury hotels we partner with.
The photos you are seeing here were from a Andaz Maui at Wailea solo female traveler. Solo travels are becoming increasingly popular, and we are glad to be able to provide them with beautiful memories of their vacation.
When her photographer in Maui met up with her, she had 2 changes of clothes and a bathing suit. For a short photo session with more people, it's not entirely necessary to bring wardrobe changes, but for single subjects, there's definitely time to play around with outfits and props.
She shared with us that of all the places to go alone, Hawaii was the possibly the best destination as it's gorgeous, relaxing and most importantly, safe. She also wanted to get photos to show her fiancé (who had to pull the plug on the trip for work reasons) what he was missing.
During her viewing, she shared that she wore all the dresses and bathing suit that he had bought her specifically for this trip. She explained how she was nervous at first being alone for a photo shoot, but that her photographer made her feel comfortable as the session went along.
The lesson? If you go to Hawaii by yourself (or any other beautiful destination), book a vacation photographer and get professional pictures for your loved one who missed out on the fun. Also, who wouldn't need stunning new profile photos for social media?
In the case of this guest, she was able to gift her significant other 40 beautiful photos of her enjoying the beautiful resort and beach in Wailea, Maui.
Documenting A New Chapter with the help of a Family Photographer
In a family, when the kids grow up and are about to move on to college, there is a shifting that takes place. This family chose Hawaii to celebrate graduations and moving on to the new chapter in everyone's life.
Mrs. Ramirez, with her two sons, did not miss a beat! Every morning, afternoon and night, she had something planned for them to all go and do together. Her goal was to create lasting memories while here, so a photo session with Pacific Dream Photography at the Andaz Maui at Wailea made perfect sense.
Earlier that year, her father had passed away, and with her being daddy's girl, it hit her hard. This all made it even more important to capture the memories with her boys while here. After all, tomorrow is not guaranteed. During their family photo experience session, she asked their photographer for a private moment and threw a rock into the ocean in honor of her dad.
The day after their session, she and one of her sons came down for the viewing and they laughed and laughed at all the photos taken during the session creating even more memories. When we got to the photo of her throwing the rock, she had to clear out her eyes from her tears from laughing to see that the shape of the rock that she threw was in the shape of a heart. It touched her so much, she teared up, couldn't believe it, and immediately wanted that photo printed on metal for her wall.
As she left, she kept thanking us for the session as it has given her so much closure in regards to her father as well as GREAT times documented with her two sons just having a goofy time here in Hawaii. On to the new chapter.
