Our family of three (with an 18-month old boy) visited Maui for the first time this year in late September – early October. We wanted to document our visit to paradise with a Hawaiian beach photo shoot, the photo shoot was one of the highlights of our trip!
The planning stages of our photo shoot narrowed it down to two Maui photographers. I did extensive research, read various reviews, looked at online portfolios, browsed through photographer bios, and spoke to the photographers or reps by phone.
I decided to go with LeLuxe Hawaii Photography because I had a good feeling after speaking to Kyle on the telephone. I was very drawn to the vivid colors of their photographs. They provided more bang for your buck! Best value I’ve found without short-changing quality.
They are a husband and wife team: Kyle handles the pre-photography planning, PR, and such…while Lena handles the photography, creativity, and editing. I LOVED working with this team!
Prior to actual face-to-face meeting, I’ve already felt very at ease handling business and planning with Kyle. He was easy to get in touch with and he was prompt at returning phone calls and emails.
Lena is very passionate about getting the best shot of the models. She isn’t afraid to get down-low on the sand to capture a picture perfect shot. Really, she was literally on her belly at one point while she was clicking away with the camera.
They came prepared with everything we needed for this Hawaiian beach photo shoot. They brought chilled bottled water for refreshment, room temp water for cleaning up our little boys sandy feet, toys to keep our little boy happy, face wipes to wipe away our sweat…and they brought patience! Lena had her creative game face on, and Kyle brought his interpersonal skills to keep everyone happy! They are genuine individuals who are passionate about their craft. They care for their clients, and the way they handle business is proof of their authentic care.
We are satisfied with our images! We are blessed to have met this team at LeLuxe Hawaii Photography. If you are searching for a Maui photographer, you need not look any further. Browse through Lena’s portfolio, give Kyle a call and discuss with him your thoughts, sleep it over, and pay your deposit to hold your appointment date!
We will definitely be giving them a call in the future!
