Welcome to our portrait photography sessions in the Paia/Kahului/Wailuku/Haiku and Upcountry area of Maui

Professional Photographer in North Maui

We offer high-quality and professional photography services for families and couples looking to capture their special moments in beautiful Maui.

Why Choose Our Portrait Photography Services?
We pride ourselves on our ability to capture the essence of our clients, bringing out their unique personalities and emotions in every photo. Our portrait photography sessions are designed to create lasting memories that you and your loved ones can cherish for years to come.

Our Approach

We believe that the best portraits are those that are natural, candid, and spontaneous. That’s why we take a relaxed and friendly approach to our photography sessions, allowing you to be yourselves and enjoy the moment. We will work with you to understand your vision and preferences to ensure that we capture the perfect shot.

We like to combine both candid and guided images in our sessions to give you the best of both worlds- the guided/posed images are often the ones that you will want printed and framed on the wall but when you are looking back on your memories- it’s the candid moments that really stand out!

We offer a range of portrait photography services to meet the unique needs of our clients.

We scheduled last minute and Michelle was so informative, accommodating, and amazing with our group of 12. We also received our digital picture album in less than 2 weeks from the session and the quality and variety of pictures was fantastic. I'd highly recommend Lokahi Photography to anyone looking for great photography session while in Maui.

I highly recommend Lokahi Photography. We were in Maui to celebrate my parents turning 70. I had originally tried to schedule with Flytographer and was unimpressed that no one would accommodate my group of 10. I'm so glad I found Lokahi. Their online photo gallery impressed me and they were easy to book with. The owner even called me personally to confirm my booking and better understand our special occasion. The photo shoot was a breeze and Johnny captured some truly stunning photos of my family. Thank you Lokahi for these wonderful photos.

Beautiful photos! We do family portraits every year so I am well versed on what makes a good photographer. Michelle nailed it. She helped with small details like hand placements, hair fixes, angles, and the little things that can make a photo go from good to great. I was very impressed because there have been times, when I have had to look at the back of the camera, adjust my family, and give notes to elevate the photo that the photographer either did not see or wasn't confident enough to provide direction. Loved the experience. 10/10.
