MEET RODRIGO MORAES
I think marriage is incredible!
I was born and raised in Santos – Brazil, but thankfully my desire to explore brought me all the way to the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii.
My approach to wedding photography is quite different from the norm I believe. I seek out raw moments – happy smiles, hands holding tight to one another, joyful tears and so on. I really look to gain your trust enough that you will just forget I’m there and let me tell your story.
I’m a father, a photographer, a partner, a vegan, a wave rider, a world traveler, a wanderer, a craft beer lover. I enjoy listening to good music, riding my bicycle, hanging out with my friends and family, and taking our dogs on walks at our favorite beach in Lahaina.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE RAVING ABOUT
I can’t say enough good things about Rodrigo! Such an amazing photographer and captured my day in the best way. Very prompt and was invisible during certain moments and captured great candid photos and then also provided great direction which made for some beautiful posed photos. I received all my photos yesterday and was in tears looking through them, they were incredible!
I could not be happier! We had a destination wedding in Maui and we selected Rodrigo based on all of his amazing photos on his website. We loved that he could capture the mood and the scenery so well. Rodrigo was super responsive before our wedding and was great about asking questions on what we were looking for! He is so friendly and made us feel so great about our decision. The wedding day arrived and everything went so smoothly! We had our first look and family photos before the ceremony and then went to a quiet beach to take photos of just us. Then we went back and Rodrigo captured the rest of the night and our quests. When we got home after the honeymoon and received that email saying our photos had arrived, we were so excited! We both started tearing up they were so beautiful. Rodrigo really captured “us”, and that is priceless! He also caught so many special moments on film that I didn’t even know he took. Rodrigo is like a ghost, you never knew he was around. But man did he capture the whole day perfectly!!! We are so happy! Karen and Craig
Rodrigo was such a dream to work with. From the very beginning he helped us discover what services I was looking for, always kept communication lines open, and had brilliant suggestions to aid in capturing genuine and authentic emotions in our wedding photos. Our young son (1.5 years old) was with us on our wedding day and he absolutely adored Rodrigo. The three of us felt very comfortable and felt like a family friend was taking our pictures. Rodrigo’s photos speak for themselves in their beautiful and thoughtful composition and his editing is just to die for. He captured the absolute sweetest moments and expressions from all of us. God has truly blessed him with photography. We are in love with our photos. Thanks, Rodrigo!
