Hi! We're Shawn + Adam

We're husband and wife who formed our Love + Water Photography team on Maui in 2014. Since then we've created a series of weddings and sessions from the land + sea, drawing inspiration from the gorgeous colors of Maui sunrises and sunsets.

Maui drone photography for couples is one of our favorite types of imagery to shoot! This beautiful sunrise Land, Sea + Sky Session for Sonja and James was the perfect way to start the day!

The couple’s fondest memory is so sweet, too: We got engaged at a National Park in Costa Rica, famous for their Capuchin monkeys who are brave enough to come up to people and steal their food,” Sonja wrote. We knew this, and we were trying to be very careful with our belongings.”

“We found a spot to sit on a rock next to the ocean, where we could see the monkeys in the distance. James opened his backpack to take out an origami heart, which was a photo of the ring (left the ring at home for safety). He asked me to marry him, I said yes, and kissed him. As we kissed, our backs turned no more than 10 seconds, we heard a rustling behind us. One of the monkeys had waited for our guard to be down, swooped in, and had his whole body in our open backpack. He pulled out a bag of M&Ms, and we looked up to see the entire pack of Capuchins in the trees above us, waiting.”

“Little guy took off with our candy and all we could do was laugh. The whole thing happened so fast, there was nothing we could do. Our special moment was crashed by monkeys. It was very much our kind of luck.”
