It doesn’t get any better...
Wow. I really am speechless but here I sit, trying to formulate the right words to convey my pure joy. The photographs Aaron captured during our elopement detail every tiny emotional we felt that day. It gives me goosebumps because these photos bring me straight back to each exact moment. He lightly guided us into certain poses, because like most people, we’re not models and just total goobs; he also brought us to the most magical places to create a very intimate feel at a very busy waterfall. We got our pictures 2 weeks later and I can’t thank him enough for photographing these lifelong memories! Mahalo, my friend!Sent on 06/24/2019
Aaron Najera Photography's reply:Bryanna and Dylan! Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate your kind words. I’m glad you were able to share how you felt! It was a busy day at one of Maui’s busiest spots and my goal was to make you feel like you were the only ones there. I had such joy capturing those images and editing your photos. Thank you for trusting me. Mahalo!

Surpassed our expectations!
Aaron was our photographer for our destination wedding at Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach. Even though he is based in Maui and our wedding was in Oahu. He was more than willing to travel, which we greatly appreciate! We live in RI and we did all our wedding planning via email or by phone calls. He was flexible with scheduling a time to discuss in further details about his photography services. After our wedding he had emailed us a sneak peek of a few of our photos which was totally unexpected and such a treat for us! :) They looked great, more than I ever imagined! He is a great photographer that knows when and how to capture emotions. Looking through the rest of our photos just bring us back to that moment and there’s moments when I just laugh and slightly cry…lol! Highly recommend Aaron, his photography skills are truly amazing!Sent on 05/16/2019
Aaron Najera Photography's reply:Julie and Anthony! Thank you so much! Your words mean a lot to me. Even though you came all the way from RI, it felt like you were locals here by how much aloha and welcoming spirit you and your family had. My favorite weddings to shoot are the ones where I feel close to the couple and family and I’m so stoked on how the photos came out. It was a beautiful day. Gorgeous venue and locations. I’ll remember this one for years to come! Mahalo! -Aaron

Aaron was simply amazing to work with and we would highly recommend him to any couples looking for beautiful shots in Maui! My fiancé and I wanted to get engagement photos on the beach but a lot of the photographers we reached out to were out of our price range, but Aaron was such a great value. His shots were gorgeous, the editing was really well done, the turnaround time was less than a week, and unlike some other photographers, Aaron didn't limit the amount of photos he took and we ended up getting over 160 edited photos from our hour shoot. Leading up to the shoot he gave some great location suggestions and was prompt in his communication. While shooting he was very comfortable and provided helpful posing suggestions and creative ideas, which was welcomed because we were a little camera shy and afraid of looking awkward. Overall, we are super grateful to have booked him and he made the experience smooth and fun, I actually forgot he was there sometimes!Sent on 01/19/2018
Aaron Najera Photography's reply:Lance & Devyn! I am so glad we were able to connect and work together. We couldn't have picked a better day/location to shoot your beautiful sunset photos and you both were so natural. I really enjoyed creating something for you both that you'll cherish forever, mahalo!

Aaron was our photographer for our wedding. His work is very professional and he knows where to place you to have the best background and quality in picture. We had fun doing this,especially my husband who has never done any type of photo shoot. It was an experience of a lifetime doing something as special as this so we can hold them as memories in our hearts that'll last a lifetime. Best part is we serve together at living way church so he not only helped us make our special day memorable but so blessed as well. Photos came in quicker than I expected them too. He was very patience and professional when it can to taking the family photos because our family was all over the place lol. I would recommend Aaron to people I know or is seeking a photographer that helps his customers throughout their experience and planning . Thank youSent on 05/23/2018

Rachel · Married on 12/30/2017
Aaron was the photographer for our engagement shoot and he did an amazing job. He was very accommodating to our schedule and on site he was extremely laid back and fun to work with. He encouraged us to be ourselves and even though he directed and posed us, he let the in between moments shine as well. His main goal was to make sure we were being true to us. My fiancé and I highly recommend him for any wedding or engagement shoot!Sent on 08/20/2017

Charmaine · Married on 11/03/2017
Aaron was a pleasure to work with from the very first phone call I made to him. He was willing to work in my budget and needs, really out of the box. He showed up the day of the ceremony with just a little guidance from myself in advance of what i wanted and really pulled it off. He was observant as to who was who and who was important to me and he captured those moments. He is very intuitive and totally went with the flow. I almost forgot at one point that he was there, he kind of just bleneded in with my guests. When we viewed the pictures we were very very happy. He captured a special day in our life and we will treasure our photos forever. Mahalo Aaron!Sent on 11/16/2017
Aaron Najera Photography's reply:Wow, thank you so much Charmaine for leaving me these kind words!! I am so happy that you & Dawson were satisfied with my work. It wasn't my mission to just take photos, but to care about your family & your guests that were there. Wishing you and your husband the best! God bless - Aaron Najera

Sheila · Married on 05/06/2017
Aaron was amazing to work with. He is very friendly, flexible, and met beyond my expectations. My friends that were not able to make it to my wedding was amazed at the outcome of my wedding through my photos. I appreciated Aaron preparing us for our big day, especially we didn't know how to act in front of a camera. His assistant Gail, made sure every little detail made our pictures perfect. Aaron was so patient with us on this chaotic day and I cant believe how beautiful my pictures turned out. My wedding day went by so fast and having these captured moments is like reliving it again; it's priceless! I am very pleased and would work with him again. I highly recommend him and thank you Aaron for blessing us :)Sent on 08/17/2017
Aaron Najera Photography's reply:Thank you so much Sheila & John for choosing me to capture you special day. I was truly blessed to be there & I am so grateful for you taking your time to write this review! I hope you both continue to fall in love though the years looking through these photos.

Aaron was so great to work with. We had a large group of 10 people including a toddler and a baby for a family photoshoot, and he was able to capture us all in so many wonderful shots. He was really easy to get along with; it was almost like we were working with a friend instead of a stranger. He picked a great venue for us since we didn't know the area and was able to get a lot of different shots which I really appreciated. He also listened to what I wanted and accommodated while also giving great input for what would work as great shots for the backgrounds we had. He even gave lots of tips on local eats which was super appreciated. I would highly recommend Aaron!Sent on 05/30/2018

We just want to say thank you to Aaron for being our Photographer! He was so welcoming and he was so good at directing us and the bridal party. My bridal party was so shocked he learned everyone’s name so fast, it made the girls feel special. It was a long day for him but never did I see his tiredness. He was so calm and very happy and that made me calmed and happy too! Mahalo Aaron for being so friendly and accommodating!Sent on 11/01/2017
