Recently Blue Soul Maui had the chance to help out with a Maui underwater photography session. We were contacted by our good friends at Nomad Visual Media to help out with a “Trash the Dress” photo shoot. The couple was referred by this amazing and unique luxury destination wedding and event planning company called Maui’s Angels. They are passionate about creating out of the ordinary and polished weddings here on Maui. Thank you both for the opportunity to help out with such an awesome experience.
We showed up to the location in our 44-foot Hawaiian outrigger canoe excited to get this newlywed couple wet. After a quick safety briefing and a little instruction how to paddle we were off to the beautiful reefs of Olowalu. Armed with a fun professional photographer who also is a water savvy, great surfer and Charlie, the owner of Blue Soul Maui who is also a avid water man the couple was sure to be safe while swimming in the ocean fully clothed.
After a few minutes paddling around for a good spot to anchor up, we found the perfect spot, an oasis of white sand surrounded by lively coral. Once we set the anchor in the sand we hopped in and began the fun. The newlywed couple were not used to swimming in the ocean, let alone fully clothed and trying to hold their breath for long periods of time. They did however do a great job after a bit of getting used to the water and some coaching from Matias and Charlie.
What an amazing experience for this young couple. We are so stoked for them. Best wishes to their new journey in life!
Once again a big shout out to Nomad Visual Media and Maui’s Angels. It is always great to be included in such unique and fun experiences and work with other companies that have such a deep passion for what they do. Mahalo! We look forward to helping out with another newlywed underwater trash the dress photography session!
