Angela Nelson Photography


I moved to Maui in 2009 with my husband, a few suitcases, and a chance for a new beginning. It was Maui that re-ignited my love for photography and all things beautiful

I was a high school language arts teacher for four years here on Maui. I built this little business between lesson plans and after-school tutoring.

I photographed my first wedding in 2010 and left teaching in 2014 – I haven’t looked back since.

I believe in genuine connection, documentary style shooting, gorgeous light – both natural and manufactured – and the use of Maui’s epic landscape to showcase your love for one another and this beautiful island.

The flowers will wilt, the dress will hang in a closet, the guests will leave – but your photos will stand the test of time. It is my aim to make you feel what your wedding day was like through your photographs.
