On my last trip to Maui, I met this really fun and fantastic couple, Summer and James. They opened up their beautiful home to let me and my partner (in both life and photography!), Patrick, stay with them. The property was stunning, covered in bamboo and fruit trees and boasting the only swimming pool and hot tub I had encountered on either of my trips to the island. They were just as lovely as their property- Summer is the hostess with the mostest, cooking meals for her friends and opening her doors to many lovely island dwellers who stopped in to celebrate the New Year. James has one of those smiles that makes you wonder what’s on his mind, he’s Mr. Popularity, and he’s also a drummer in several bands- including one with my good buddy Justin, “Yum Yum Beast” (photos to come from their promo shoot soon!). They were both so kind to Patrick and me and I wanted to give back the best was I know how. So on my last morning at their beautiful home, we did an Aloha couple’s session on their property (that Banyan Tree is so sweet!).
I hope to meet up with these two again in the future! Mahalo, Summer and James!

Here’s a few of my favorites from our session!
