Travel Story

Neither of us had been to Maui before, or any Hawaiian Island. The past two years we have done quite a bit of international travel and we decided that for this spring break we were going to travel domestically and Maui seemed like the right place. While beach days were a must for this vacation, we also were hoping that coming to Maui in March would mean seeing some whale activity. And we did! We saw the whales a handful of times but I will never forget when one was slapping its tail on the water in the middle of our Flytographer shoot. We all had to pause for a second to take in the beauty and magic that the whale was showing us. Maui is a beautiful island with so much to offer. I am a photographer and most of the time you will find me behind the camera. I decided to book a Flytographer shoot to have photographs with me in them, not just behind the scenes. I chose Marie because I felt that her style reflected mine. She did not disappoint! It rained on our shoot but Marie still made it fun and captured magical photographs that we will always treasure.

Travel Tips

Highly recommend driving the Road to Hana. The 620 curves and 59 bridges are well worth the beautiful views and gorgeous waterfalls. Hula Grill in Kaanapali is a fun place to eat with your feet in the sand and a beautiful view of the ocean. If you are traveling during whale season be sure to watch the water, we saw a lot of whales from our table. Dinner and a show! And be sure to try the Hula Pie! Lastly, be sure to try Paia Fish Market! If you are a fan of fish and chips, this place is a must. It is delicious.
