Recently choice Josie at Maltese Dreams for our vow renewal ceremony. She was very helpful as were planned by email being i live is Australia. She is easy to work with and made the event very special. We had a Hawian minister which she arranged for us. Although it was a very simple and small ceremony just the 2 of us Josie made us feel very special. I would highly recommend her services for any type of service you are planning.

Josie exceeded our expectations and took very professional wedding pictures. The day of our wedding was the first time we meet Josie. She was very professional and captured our wedding beautifully in pictures. We originally planned to only purchase a limited number of photos but after seeing the high quality images of the proofs, we purchased them all. She was quick to turn around the CD of the pictures so we could use them back home for a party.

Josie did a fantastic job. We decided at the last minute to renew our wedding vows on the beach at Kapalua. Josie was very fast to respond to my query, and lined us up with Rev. Ernest Pua’a to perform a beautiful, thoughtful ceremony. I knew from what I saw on her website that her images would be great, and they were. She really, really captured the moment beautifully. She used her camera to capture color and light where there was none, making each image a standout. We just let her pose us (except for one shot i asked she take with my phone, which she cheerfully did) and they were beautiful and moving. I still look at my pictures a month later and can bring up the emotions of the day. She went out of her way to deliver the CD to our hotel before we left. I can’t recommend her enough.

Thank you so much for the most amazing wedding! From start to finish, you handled every need of ours. We both loved Kapalua Bay and Charles who performed our ceremony. He made it very personal, and memorable by the things he said, sang and the speed of keeping itslow. Your pictures are BREATHTAKING and we are so excited to get them framed and up in our house. Every moment during the ceremony, to the wonderful dinner afterwards at Merriman’s made for the best wedding ever! We couldn’t be happier!

We felt that we could use some help coordinating all of the tasks involved for our March 7, 2016 wedding on Maui. After searching all of the reviews for the many wedding planners on Maui, we decided to use “Maltese Dreams Maui Weddings & Photography”. This turned out to be a great decision for us and Josie Maltese was excellent. She made terrific recommendations, coordinated everything for us and everything went better than we had dreamed. We could not have picked a better wedding planner that was easy to work with and worked within our budget! Josie is also a professional photographer and the pictures she took were amazing. We would recommend “Maltese Dreams Maui Weddings & Photography” to anyone who is looking for help coordinating their wedding in Maui.

John and I wanted a romantic wedding on the beach…just the two of us. JoJo was so helpful from the start, we were only going to be in Maui a short amount of time and then moving onto some of the other islands and she helped so much…suggesting a florist and even picking up our flowers, making an appointment with a license agent, finding an amazing minister, timing our ceremony perfectly for a beautiful sunset we will never forget and taking beautiful photos. Allowing us to suggest photos we wanted as well for important family traditions. We appreciated everything and highly recommend JoJo!! Mahalo very much Josie Sincerely,

We wanted a small ceremony with just the two of us but still wanted the special touches of a “big” wedding. The “Just Maui’d” package on Josie’s Maltese Dreams website was perfect…flowers, cake, celebratory toast, pictures – everything for an affordable price. She set up and took care of every detail which meant a lot to us since we were planning this from 4,000 miles away. My spouse and I have known each other for 30 years, so we were not the “usual” wedding couple. Josie made sure everything was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The pictures are gorgeous, she is an amazing photographer. We highly recommend Josie Maltese as a wedding planner and a photographer, she was fabulous.

Josie made my wedding day absolutely perfect! She took every bit of stress away that I had and was very affordable. She not only is the photographer but was also the cordinator for us, she made the appointment for our marriage license to be done and also made the appointment for the minister to come to the sight. She had a sight in mind and suggested we do a sunset wedding, after receiving detailed directions to the sight we arrived to an amazing beach with an unreal sunset for photos. She made the photo taking very fun and easy, I am very self-conscious about my weight and she made me feel so comfortable and had us do poses that accented my body .. it was beyond my expectations!! I recommend her to everyone!

I would recommend JoJo with Maltese Dreams Weddings & Photography for any of your wedding or anniversary plans. JoJo planned our beautiful family wedding in Maui in 2004 and this past September, we contacted her again to plan our anniversary wedding vow renewal ceremony on the same beach. Both times, she has provided EXCELLENT service. If you are thinking of a wedding in Maui (which I highly recommend too), please contact JoJo. You will not be disappointed! She is the greatest!

We hired Josie in Dec. 2017 to photograph our vow renewal ceremony and she did a fantastic job. She took 160 pictures and gave me a CD so I could print as many pictures and enlargements as I wanted. She is very creative with several different poses. We really like her and enjoyed working with her. I highly recommend her.
