Maui Wedding Photographer Moorea Thill

Ever work with someone once and feel like you are already friends?  That’s what it was like when I met Moorea Thill at Janessa & Danny’s beach elopement back in February.  Since then, we have worked on a number of weddings together and she even took some beautiful photos of me.  Working with her is so fun and easy that she made it onto my favorite vendors list right away.  Photography can be a tough gig, especially for weddings. The pressure is on to get fantastic photos, be graceful, professional and fun.  Moorea has all that down pat and then some. She’s recently expanded her work to include beautiful highlight videos of her wedding bookings.  You can watch the highlight video for a wedding that we did together in Lahaina last month below.

Meet Maui Wedding Photographer Moorea Thill

Aloha! My name is Moorea and I am a Maui based photographer specializing in capturing real/authentic moments. Most would describe my style as a nice mix of classic portrait photography with a fun twist of a photojournalistic flare. Capturing true expression through my lens is my biggest passion and to be able to share that with others is a huge blessing. I would be my pleasure to work together in the future. Please feel free to connect with me on all the socials and reach out if you have any questions!

Q & A with Moorea

Beach or Mountains?

Mountains all the way! In my free time, I love to rock climb and hike and have always found peace when I’m in higher elevation. The air is so crisp and cold, I would live with the Nene in Haleakala if I could.

Beatles or Stones?

BEATLES! I took a History of the Beatles class in college that was life changing and was a huge inspiration behind my 2-month backpacking trip around Europe. I walked across Abbey Road (and yes I got the classic shot everyone wants), and ended up going to Liverpool after London and walked down Penny Lane, visited the Cavern, and saw the Elenor Rigby statue. So yes I am a Beatles girl, and if I had to choose my favorite song it would have to be Rocky Raccoon.

Emojis or no emojis?

💓😂😄🤔🐩Yes yes yes. I love Emojis

If you could sit and have a long conversation with a famous person (living or dead) who would it be? And what would you be drinking?

Humm that is a hard one but I would LOVE to have a conversation with Ram Das over a cup of warm tulsi tea.

How long have you been shooting weddings?

I started shooting weddings a little over a year ago and have fallen in love! My favorite types of weddings are elopements because they are so intimate and unique to each couple.

What is your approach to capture great wedding photos?

Be authentic and fun and really take the time to slow down with my couples and enjoy the in-between moments. Those tend to be my favorite photos from the day. I love asking them to interact with actions like “whisper in your bride’s ear what you love the most about her” and seeing them both light up with love.

Do you have a favorite wedding location on Maui?

Makena Cove all the way!

What is your price range?
My price ranges from 795 for a simple one-hour wedding to the 5000 range for a full day production. NOTE:  Moorea has special package prices just for my clients so email her or me for those. Watch one of her highlight wedding videos below.

If you were going to do something else besides being an awesome photographer, what would it be?
A pilot… and there is still time to make this dream come true.

I absolutely love the light in this picture. The way it is coming through the window and shining through the glasses makes me feel all the feels!

This image captures all the joy within one moment. I loved getting to work with Janessa and Danny to capture their special day. Fun Fact: This was the first wedding Jules and I got to work together on and it was so much fun! HMU @jhairandmakeupbyjpetro Flowers @fukushima_flowers_maui
Man oh Man! I love this image because it shows off Christina’s hair which she did herself and because I love how they are completely in the moment and I am just documenting it. Cheers to these two cuties!
