Maui Wedding Planner

Welcome to Maui


Aloha, E komo mai o Maui (Welcome to Maui)
I am Josie Maltese, your Maui wedding planner, consultant, coordinator, and Maui wedding photographer.
I have been in Hawaii since 1986 working in the wedding industry as a wedding consultant/planner. It has been a very rewarding and exciting business to be in. I really enjoy assisting couples in choosing the best minister for their beach wedding location.

Also knowing so many other wedding professionals,it is easy to advise them on choosing a musician that can enhance the ceremony as they are serenaded by the sound of a Hawaiian ukulele player, vocals of the islands, or a soft sound of the harp that blends in with the breeze, and calming feeling of the ocean coming up on the shore.

I have been a photographer and also a wedding videographer, which adds to my good choice of lighting, composition and direction.

I also specialize in Romantic, Playful and Creative Wedding Photography and Sunset Images. I want to make sure that you take home wedding pictures that bring you back to moments of your ceremony so you feel those feelings again. It is always a sincere, joyous and heartfelt experience that should be remembered throughout your married life together. I will work with couples to create their Romantic Hawaiian Style Beach Wedding or Vow Renewal. Also available are Garden Weddings or private location weddings. I work with many Maui Wedding Ministers, Musicians, Videographers, Florists and Hair Stylists to help make your Wedding Day Dream come true. I also offer and enjoy Family Portraits bringing out everyone’s fun personalities. It is a great experience for families to have fun together while capturing fun playful moments together to enjoy and share for a life time.

From the time of your planning to come here to when you leave to go back home i want your trip to the island to be a delightful experience. Not only for your wedding ceremony but also the many fun activities to be experienced that will keep your days filled with excitement which I can also assist you with.

On the day of your wedding standing on the beach waiting to hear the Hawaiian minister blow the conch shell to start the ceremony, the sound of the Hawaiian Wedding Chant to announce that “this is the place for which you have longed for”. Then the exchange of leis to greet each other into the ceremony, the vows, the rings—all of it should be remembered. After the ceremony we enjoy the fun part of the wedding photography. Walking the beach, wedding pictures with your family and friends, candid exchanges with the couple, creative images and portraits. It really is one of the best days of your life and i am happy to be a part of it as your Maui wedding planner and photographer.
