Customize Your Photo Shoot with Props! - Maui Beach Portrait Prop List by Maui Photographers Karma Hill Photography

While we love our portraits to be as natural as possible, sometimes the addition of one or two cute props can really make a photo session special, and some props double as ways to keep the kids happy and also look adorable in your photos!  Below you will see some of our available props that you can add to your portrait session, free of charge, as long as we have them available! Just let us know what you would like! If you don't see something you want, let us know we may be able to source it or rent it on Maui ( for an additional fee).  If you are looking for something REALLY special and styled just for you, say a romantic picnic on the beach, or a VW van with surfboards, let us know, we work the best in the industry when it comes to styling photo shoots and weddings on Maui! 

Sand shovels and buckets - This is a great way to keep little ones in one place and busy, they also look lovely in photos and can show a family interacting with each other playing in the sand. We ALWAYS have these available, in fact our photographers usually have them in their cars! 

Giant windmills (2) - we have one in coral and one in blue as well as several smaller windmills, kids love these and have a fun time letting them spin in the Maui trade winds. 

White Adirondack Chairs (2) - Fun and beachy and great for kids who do not like their toes in the sand.  Only available on beaches with easy access from a parking lot as they are too heavy to carry long distances.

Red and White Striped Beach Umbrella (1) - This bright and fun umbrella has a vintage feel and adds a fun pop of color to any beach session.

Teal Surfboard (1) whether or not you surf, this is a cute prop to incorporate into your photos! 

Beach Cruiser Bike (1) Adorable retro looking teal beach cruiser, fun for couples photos!

Vintage Radio Flyer Wagon (1) Kids love this wagon and it looks adorable in photos! If your portrait session takes you to a place where you can pull it it also makes for adorable action shots! 

The Oceanfront Estate Wedding of Jamie & Shane - by Karma Hill Photography

Photographing beautiful things is definitely our forte! Maui oceanfront estate weddings are definitely beautiful so what better way to spend our morning than to take pictures of it? Jamie & Shane chose Simple Maui Wedding to coordinate their very special event which means we here at Karma Hill Photography get to capture it! It's a perfect plan! Jamie & Shane were married by Reverend Valentine Rosete who assisted the two in their own custom vows. It was actually the words from "Suit & Tie" from Justin Timberlake and added such a cute touch to the ceremony. They brought their sweet little dogs all the way from California so they could be a part of their wedding. After the ceremony staff photographer Naomi took the lovely couple out on the lava rocks for their portrait time. It was such a beautiful day and we were honored they chose Karma Hill Photography to be a part of it! Mahalo Jamie & Shane! We wish you two many years of love and happiness!

Kim & Louieji's Maui Engagement Portrait - by Karma Hill Photography

We met Kim & Louieji at DT Fleming last weekend for their Maui engagement portraits! They were so fun and sweet and had such a blast together! They started at the north end of DT Fleming in the greenery with their semi-formal dress and then walked down to the south end of the beach for their playful beach pictures. They had plenty of time to change outfits and set up different poses and such. We love their selection of props that they brought, scrabble pieces to spell their names and a really cute kite with their names and wedding date. Staff photographer Sasha had so much fun spending time with them and just capturing their personalities. Thank you so much Kim & Louieji for choosing us for your Maui engagement portraits! We hope you two have a fabulous wedding!!!
