What to expect from a shoot with Love + Water Photography
Prompt communication from the get-go. We are super responsive via e-mail and offer unlimited e-mail consultations post-booking.
Streamlined booking process. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3, and we give you access to a client lounge to refer back to your agreement, invoice and questionnaires.
Easy, flowing posing during a session - few people are confident in front of the camera - we're changing that.
Exquisite, consistent edits on all the images delivered after your shoot. We never deliver an unfinished product.
Hint: You're going to enjoy the process!
When we return from your session, images are culled and left behind are the strongest contenders for your finished gallery. You might think you want as many images as possible from your session, but believe us, when it comes to photography it's quality, not quantity - we have an eye for what works best, and the images you receive are going to each be worthy of a spot on your wall!
We spend the majority of our time post-processing, editing each image to suit the tones and style you see on our website. We remove visible acne, sunburns and more and provide advanced edits as part of your portrait investment.
If you've ever witnessed the delicate beauty of a Maui sunrise, you'd know the pastel tones illuminating the sky are very, very real. When processing your images we do our best to maintain the reality of your morning or sunset session and opt to enhance the natural beauty of your surroundings rather than fabricate it.
The skies you see are real - Maui really is that beautiful and we do our best to pay testament to the island's vibrant colors when editing the imagery from your beach portrait session.
Who wants to wait days or weeks for a preview from their session? As soon as your shoot ends, we're editing up a preview and deliver it with your final invoice.
Your image gallery is curated and delivered within 4 weeks of your session, often sooner. We give your images the attention they deserve!
We have and always will extend a 10% discount to all of our return and kama'aina clients. Saving up to $150 just for shooting with us again? It's a win-win!
As our client, you'll receive a gift card to use at our online shop, The Land + Sea Store. Use it toward Maui ocean art prints or one of our curated gift bundles!

Our COVID-19 rescheduling policy is flexible - no stress.
We're here to help make the process of traveling to Hawaii less stressful with regards to rescheduling your photoshoot. If you need to cancel your shoot for reasons related to COVID-19, you can reschedule within 1 year and not lose your non-refundable retainer. If you test positive before traveling to Hawaii, you can also move your retainer to a date within 1 year. Our full policy will be clearly outlined in the agreement you sign prior to booking.
In March of 2020, our entire world was turned upside down. We received nearly 100 portrait cancellations, and the months that followed saw us in some of the darkest days our business has endured. During the COVID lockdown we did the "pivot" to e-commerce, launching The Land + Sea Store and focusing on pure survival. During the last several months we've comes to terms with great loss on many levels and have regained traction. We appreciate your support of our family's business, as your patronage has seen us through what we hope is the most difficult stage in our professional and personal lives.
2020 was a tough year on everyone, and as small business owners, your commitment to quality and support of our passion means the world to us. Thank you for choosing us.
You're the reason we will continue to thrive - thank you.
