My approach to photographing weddings is interdisciplinary; the majority of the day is documentary, and handled as reportage. Parts of the day, however, call for artistic license and direction, which I also enjoy. An ideal collection of wedding images should be a balance of the truly candid moments, subtly-directed portraits, artfully-composed details and more general impressions of the mood and atmosphere of the setting.


Welcome to Melia Lucida Photography and to Maui.


Every image my clients receive is individually edited by me in a style that is true to life, understated and timeless. I do not subscribe to one style or palette but instead take inspiration from my clients first and foremost and the mood and aesthetic of the day and place, aiming for elegant authenticity. I hope that as you browse my portfolios you will be able to not only appreciate the use of light and composition but also how good it felt like to be there.
