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.

Magical Maui Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House

Love + Water Photography recently had the incredible honor of capturing Heather and Stephen’s enchanting Maui wedding at the Olowalu Plantation House. This beautiful couple, surrounded by their loving families and friends, celebrated their special day in a location that perfectly matched their love story.

Heather and Stephen are as lovely as they come. Their joy and affection for each other were palpable, making every moment we captured truly magical! Having also had the pleasure of shooting their engagement photos on one of Maui’s pristine beaches, we were thrilled to continue documenting their journey at such a picturesque venue. They also hosted a beautiful welcoming party for their wedding guests before the big day which was such a lovely way to kick off the festivities.

The wedding day was full of personal touches, from little shout-outs to Heather and Stephen’s beloved dog to a very cute s’mores bar at the end of the night. The party continued into the night, energized by live music and traditional fire dancing, and we had such an amazing time.

We also snuck away for sunset beach wedding portraits of Heather and Stephen and, wow, the colors were just phenomenal! We couldn’t have asked for a better sunset. Scroll down to see for yourself.

The Olowalu Plantation House is a dream destination for any couple looking to tie the knot in paradise. Nestled on the West Maui coastline, this historic venue offers a unique blend of rustic charm and tropical elegance. With its sweeping ocean views, lush gardens, and a stunning backdrop of the West Maui Mountains, it’s no wonder Heather and Stephen chose this spot to say “I do.”

Here are a few reasons why the Olowalu Plantation House is a perfect wedding venue:

  1. Scenic Beauty: The venue boasts panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and the island’s lush greenery, providing a breathtaking setting for wedding photos.
  2. Historic Charm: Built in the late 1800s, the plantation house exudes a timeless charm that adds character and elegance to any event.
  3. Versatile Spaces: From the oceanfront lawn to the quaint plantation house itself, there are numerous spots to host different parts of your wedding day.
  4. Privacy and Exclusivity: The venue offers an intimate atmosphere, making your wedding feel exclusive and special.
  5. Convenience: Located just a short drive from Lahaina, the Olowalu Plantation House is easily accessible while still offering a sense of seclusion.
