“Penny photographed my daughter’s wedding at Gannon’s in August and the sneak peek and digital images are really spectacular. We are looking forward to getting the final package. We didn’t know what to expect, working through a wedding coordinator website (Aloha Maui Dream Weddings) with the photos included. We could not be happier! What a great team that Penny and Darci make! The two of them completely captured the mood of the evening. Truly a wonderful day. Don’t hesitate to contact Penny for any photo needs whether it is a wedding or anything else. She is great! And if you are looking for a wedding or special event coordinator, ask for Darci because she is the best!!”

“When we started to plan our wedding in Maui we began with looking for a photographer. After many Goggle searches we narrowed the field down to two. Once we contacted Penny to get more info we knew we found the right photographer for our special day. From the beginning Penny and Darci laid everything out and surprisingly made our decision to get married in Maui so easy! Everything went great. We took their advice and split the photo shoot into two sessions, one in the morning for the marriage ceremony and the other at sunset. Two different locations, it was amazing!
If you are looking for a photographer/team to capture your special day or trip, then Penny Palmer is the one to choose!
Thank you Penny!”

“We had an amazing shoot with Penny when we visited Maui. Getting in contact with her was easy and she was on time the day of the shoot. She took some gorgeous shots and came with some great ideas. She was so easy to work with and our photos came out just perfect. We also got our photos way earlier than expected and we were able to share them with our friends and family. I would definitely recommend her! She has a true eye for photography.”
-Chitrali, 9/5/17, Facebook.com
“I cannot get over how beautiful my pictures turned out! I booked Penny for getting ready, wedding, and another trash the dress photo shoot. She was so fun to work with, she had us laughing the whole time! She really knows the best way to pose you to get a more flattering angle. She is so dedicated to her job, during my trash the dress photo shoot she was scaling lava rocks with me and at one point was in the water pretty much up to her waist to get the perfect shot! I was so impressed with her and am so happy to have these beautiful pictures to cherish forever! Thank you, Penny!”
-Randi, August 22, 2017, WeddingWire.com
“Everything was perfect! Darci made the entire process flow with grace and ease, everything from obtaining the license, finding the perfect location and flowers. Penny’s photos were breathtaking. The ceremony was very beautiful and personal. I cannot express how perfect everything was…all we had to do was show up, be present in the moment and focus on each other. Our wedding is etched in my memory as a day of love, peace and aloha!”
-Nancy, WeddingWire.com. August 20, 2017
“Penny did a fantastic job with our honeymoon sunset pictures! Everything came out more fabulous than I could have ever imagined! Look no further for a photographer on Maui! She is reasonably priced for the area and great quality. Thank you for letting us be silly and enjoy the beach!”

“A special thanks to Darci at Aloha Maui dream weddings and Penny at Penny Palmer Photography for making our dream day come true. You two really made us feel a part of the aloha family! The whole day and experience was so much more perfect than we ever could have imagined, and I don’t know how but you managed to capture the love and affection we share for each other in every single photo. I can’t imagine planning a wedding with anyone else!”
-Crystal, Facebook.com, July 12, 2017

“We couldn’t have asked for anything more from Darci and Penny! Even though they perform ceremonies day after day, their passion made us feel like we were special. The history Darci provided was meaningful and Penny did a great job not being distracting at all. We hope to bring the family back for a renewal in 5 years and will be honored if Darci and Penny will perform the ceremony and take photos.
Thanks so much!”
-Sellie & Greg, July 18, 2017, TheKnot.com
“A huge thank you to Penny for her help in making and saving wonderful memories of our Maui vacation! Penny was easy to contact and friendly throughout the process of booking and completing our photo session. My husband is NOT typically fond of when I drag him to get pictures taken, but she made us laugh the whole time and our evening with her felt like an extra excursion on our trip. You will also be thrilled with the results! Just today I looked back at our pics and smiled. So worth the investment! Thank you again SO much Penny!!”

“Great photos of the couple. I especially enjoyed the action shots of the reception and the beautiful shots of the couple on the beach <3 ” – Krista, June 20, 20177, WeddingWire.com
“The wedding was set with a beautiful, romantic backdrop at the beach in Maui, but without Penny’s photography, the wedding photos would not have been the same. The wedding photos were stunning!! Penny and Darci (the wedding planner) made such an amazing team. They worked so well together and made the wedding day so memorable. The photos just bring me back to the special day that I got to share in with my beautiful friend Marina and her now husband Steve. You cannot ask for a better way to reminisce about your special day than with the magic of Penny Palmer Photography.”
Azadehi, June 19, 2017, Weddingwire.com
“Penny is an amazing photographer! The pictures she took of our wedding couldn’t have been any better. She is so professional and knowledgeable about her craft. You can tell this is something she loves to do and in turn is amazing at it. She took a large variety of posed and candid shots. At places like the beach timing is everything for those great splashing wave shots and man did she pull it off! She’s a great photographer and also such a sweetheart, during a moment where I felt self conscious she told me a story about someone she met in Thailand and it made me feel beautiful and confident and you can really see the difference in the photos. So thank you so much Penny for making our amazing day just that much better by being a part of it.”
Thank you again for these beautiful photos. You are a true artist!
“5 STARS! I did not know what to expect when purchasing a limited photo package with my Maui wedding ceremony. Penny created amazing shots of me, my husband and wedding party coordinated with the setting sun. Our photo’s tell our total wedding story better than a video. They are so beautiful they look unreal. Needless to say I purchased every photo at her very reasonable price. Both Penny and Darci are a joy to work with. They do what they say they will do and bring the “extras” that you don’t know enough to ask for.
– Katrina & Leo, April 27, 2017,
“Our ceremony at Makena Cove was amazing! Penny and Darci are the best. They went above and beyond for our special day for our family. Penny is a great photographer who makes getting photos taken so relaxed and natural and she knows how to capture those extra special moments. Darci’s vows she put together for us with the information we gave her were so touching and so true to us. It was absolutely perfect! They both went the extra mile for us with special extras for our boys. They made the moments we have been dreaming about since we booked with them so unforgettable and cherishing. We look forward to an anniversary session with them. We highly recommend Darci and Penny for your special occasion!” – Josie and Stephanie C.
“Penny Palmer Photography is the Best photographer on the Island for that special wedding or if you are just wanting a professional photo shoot. My husband and I got married on Maui in September. I shopped around for photographers for a year and was thrilled when I found Penny. The prices are wonderful and so is the attention to detail! We fly back over to Maui this September and are hiring them again for another shoot only this time its an underwater photo shoot! Can’t wait to go back and get more Wonderful pictures and special moments captured of the two of us!!! If your looking for someone who is Great to work with and does great work, look no further!” – Collette
“Penny photographed our wedding, her photos turned out stunning. Along with posed shots she also took some really great candid shots. We loved every photo she took and our family and guest did too. She was very professional throughout our whole day and we so enjoyed her and her team.”

We could not be more pleased with the photos and feel that there is no one better to have helped us capture the vision of our special day. We are grateful to Penny, Penny’s assistant and Darcy (our coordinator and officiant) for creating a day that we will hold dear for the rest of our lives.”

“Penny was so sweet and so professional every step of the way. The true proof of her skills came when we received our photos, they are stunning!! She took the time to make sure we all looked our best and captured each special moment. The best part was the turn around time, we didn’t have to wait a month to get our photos!!! ”

“Thank you Penny and Darci for a great shoot. We are all so appreciative of your flexibility and working around Makena getting sick Your skills and talents were clear, even before seeing our beautiful photos. You have great attention to detail but also show a genuine care for the comfort of your clients. You made the shoot easy, comfortable, and fun (which is no easy task given my Mom’s discomfort with pictures and working around a 15 month old). Mahalo!”

“I would highly recommend Penny Palmer Photography to anyone. Penny’s pictures were simply amazing! Penny was easy to work with. She took two nervous, non-photogenic people (my hubby and myself) and made us feel special and captured just the perfect moments. Penny created unique pictures with the sunset and props. The candles and starfish added a unique touch that was much appreciated. We are beyond thrilled! Thank you for capturing our special day with pictures that we will cherish forever.”

“Originally we wanted a morning wedding, when the water is that beautiful blue color. When I booked our wedding through Aloha Maui Dream Weddings, I looked through Penny’s work and her sunset pictures are just to die for. We immediately wanted a sunset wedding! Our pictures turned out so amazing, like something you would find on a postcard. They are just so unbelievably breathtaking. Penny was awesome, and paid close attention to detail and took the time to reshoot if it didn’t seem right. She knew I wasn’t a fan of the posed shots, so we didn’t do any. I was 100% comfortable, and the results were simply amazing! Thank You, Penny! ”

“After looking over many possible choices, we chose to work with Penny Palmer for our Vow Renewal. I can’t recommend Penny Palmer enough! She was responsive, professional, and very reasonably priced. We love her photos and I genuinely feel that these are the best professional photos we’ve ever had!”
-Raymond & Elizabeth, Weddingwire.com – 5 Stars
“We used Penny Palmer Photography together with Aloha Maui Dream Weddings for our Maui wedding. My husband and I are both not people who normally like having our pictures taken, but Penny was very professional and put us at ease. I love that there was an option to purchase the digital photographs so that I don’t have to worry about losing my only wedding photos to fire or damage. The photos were beautifully done and she somehow managed to position us perfectly to make it look like we were the only ones on the beach! I highly recommend both Penny and Aloha Maui Dream Weddings. ”
Vera & Steven, WeddingWire.com – 5 Star
“Penny is simply amazing at what she does! She took two people who generally aren’t comfortable in front of the camera and captured moments that my friends said should be on the cover of a bridal magazine! She is professional, reassuring and SO easy to work with. She and her partner, Darci, even had a beach ball for our toddler which helped him acclimate to his first beach visit and made for some wonderful photos of our family playing on the beach in our wedding attire! Penny and Darci were also awesome with our families who traveled out with us — sharing tips on what to do during their stay in Maui. We highly recommend them and will look them up for family photos on our next visit!”
-Jenn & Chris, October 21, 2016, WeddingWire.com – 5 Stars
“We were recently married on September 2016. We booked our wedding with Aloha Maui Dream Wedding and Darci told us Penny Photography will be taking our photos. She sent me some of work and I was super excited. Penny’s photos were amazing. The day of our wedding, Penny and her assistant, Ellie were very professional. The photos turned out amazing!! We were laughing, smiling and I couldn’t have asked for a better turn out of our photos! If you are heading to Maui and need great photos, don’t look any further than Penny Photography! True professionals! Thank you!”

“We were so lucky to have chosen Maui Dream Weddings and Penny Palmer Photography to make our day so special. Coming from Australia and not knowing the island of Maui we relied on Darci to choose the location and make all the arrangements. Everything went so smoothly it could not have been better. We were made to feel so comfortable my husband commented that he felt like we had known both Darci and Penny for a long time even thought we had just met.
We recommend Maui Dream Weddings and Penny Palmer Photography very highly. They provide a personal and caring service which we greatly appreciated.”

“We had fantastic sunset wedding at Wailea. Planning a wedding from a different country (never having been there) could have been extremely difficult and stressful. With Darci’s helpful Information about everything …location, venues, photographer and things to do on the island made it so much easier …and a lot more enjoyable! Darci as the planner and Penny the photographer are a great team. We have beautiful pictures to remind us of our wedding day, and highly recommend anyone wanting to have their special day in Maui to consider them.”

5 STARS, WeddingWire.com “Mahalo for making a big dream come true! We want to give you more stars!!! It was always my dream to be married on a beach in Hawaii. Through a friend we met Darci and Penny, and Aloha Maui Dream Weddings and Penny Palmer Photography. What a gift! We started planning the vow renewal service while still residents of California, on our way to Maui permanently. Darci and Penny were more than responsive to our questions, always available, always more than pleasant and always accommodating. They are very, very professional, very thorough, and do not flinch if one has a very last-minute change ( oh yes, I did have one….). They took all the stress and worry on their shoulders, and we relaxed completely. On the day of the vow renewal, all went like clockwork – we could not have asked for anything more! The leis were perfect, the ring of flowers on the sand was so gorgeous, the picture-taking painless and fun. We cannot recommend them enough!! If you want a completely stress-free ceremony, one that fits your budget and your dreams, and breath-taking photographs, call Aloha Maui Dream Weddings! As an added bonus, we feel we have friends for life in both Darci and Penny – and that is the icing on the cake!” – Carol, January 2016
5 STARS, WeddingWire.com“Having Penny Palmer as our photographer was the icing on the cake. Fully professional and an amazing person to work with. She captured every second of myself and my wife’s treasured moments that we now have for life.
Our wedding package included many photos of which we had to choose a certain few. Penny made it so difficult for us to choose as everyone was taken to perfection. Impossible to choose we ended purchasing everyone and have had no regrets in doing so. Having travelled half way round the world from England, we are so proud to have found our new friends for life in Penny and Darci. They certainly met all our expectations and gave us an unforgettable Aloha Maui Dream Wedding. Thank you so much. We are looking forward to our return trip” – Garry (United Kingdom), January 2016

“We became Mr & Mrs Davis yesterday & with the help of Penny and Darci, they made it all possible. Penny is an above and beyond photographer, she has so much to offer and I would highly recommend everyone to utilize her beautiful skills. Darci as well ( our planer & anointer) went above and beyond. She made our ceremony beautiful, we both cried, Very personable. Overall you can’t go wrong with these two, they are the dream team. Godbless.”

“Penny and her assistant Darcy did amazing and beautiful work for the engagement photos of my daughter. I have no doubt that she generously gave extra time at no charge to give us a huge selection of incredible photographs. Far exceeded my expectations.”
“Exceptional quality from both Penny and Darci! Not only did we get to take fantastic sunset honeymoon pictures on Wailea, but we had access to Darci for months as she offered helpful Information about resorts, restaurants, and local things to do on the island! They are a wonderful and gave us exceptional service and we cannot wait to see all of our honeymoon pictures and relive our amazing experience of memories!
We highly recommend to anyone considering a photographer!”

Thank you for the perfect wedding for us. It was great to meet you and Penny. (And, thanks too, for the celebratory photo.) We think it quite good luck to be blessed by a few sprinkles of rain, a beautiful rainbow, and you. All were remarkable in our opinion.

“Penny Palmer was AMAZING … She captured every moment at our villa we rented and at DT Flemings beach. I will always remember her telling me just before I walked down the aisle/sandy beach…”What you wrote in your 5 page wedding agenda, toss it out of your mind, whats done is done, everyone is here and its your day! Are you ready to get married?!” And thats the last wedding bridezilla moment I still laugh about. We received our sneak peak photo of the entire bridal party on the beach jumping … It was incredible!!! Two takes thats all it took Penny!!! I knew the other photos of our get ready photos etc would be great… And they were beautiful and we couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend Penny to anyone getting Maui’d Mahalo!!!

“After being together for 21 years, we were just going to sign the papers and have a vacation. When our friend from Oahu decided to come to Maui for the wedding we decided we would just have a very simple ceremony IF we could find someone on short notice. We were blessed to contact Aloha Maui Dream Weddings, who arranged to meet us in a little over 2 hours on Polo beach. Although we had asked for the bare bones deal, Penny also came along and photographed our experience. What an experience it was. Blessings for you both and for all the people on the beach who cheered when we finished. You created a perfect memory for us on very short notice and we will be eternally great-full. An unqualified 5 star review from us (only because that is the highest rating, it should be at least a 10). Place your dreams in their hands and be amazed at what results. Thank you, Mahalo nui loa.” – M&M July 30, 2014

Darci Palmer surpassed our expectations as a Wedding Planner and Minister from the first time we reached out to her! She was incredibly responsive to all our questions and requests. Darci allowed us to fully enjoy our vacation by taking care of every detail of our ceremony. She wanted to make OUR day about US, and she did! Darci managed to capture our personalities, the spiritual Hawaiian traditions, and the natural beauty of The Secret Beach in a ceremony that was simply inspired. Penny Palmer captured both the beauty of our beach paradise and the emotion of our wedding day! She was professional, yet fun and flexible, allowing us to be ourselves, including the tears and the laughter. We were so pleased with Penny’s creative vision. Penny truly preserved our memorable day with her photographic magic. The team of Palmer & Palmer made our wedding day a dream come true! We would highly recommend them for your special day! -Tina & Nora, June 28, 2014
We had a dream and Darci and Penny effortlessly brought it into reality. Darci created the stage…Penny captured it all behind her lens, and presented us with the photos the next day! Some may try to imitate, but never duplicate their skills. Mahalo e ke aloha nui loa!!

Thank you so much for putting this together for us. It is absolutely beautiful and we really appreciate the time you spent to create something unique for us. We love it! We will certainly refer you to any other friends who decide to get married in Maui. I couldn’t be more grateful. I couldn’t imagine that it would feel any differently to be married. I kept thinking, after 16 years how could it feel different? But, somehow it really does. Thank you again so much for marrying us and making it so special!

This was the best “excursion” we enjoyed on Maui! Even the guys in our group enjoyed this photo shoot! Penny and Darci knew just what to say and do to make everyone comfortable and we have priceless photos with everyone in the pictures! Thanks for the memories!
– The Sharp/Walter group, 2013
These pictures turned out great! We were amazed at how many pictures you got and the great quality.
Anyone looking for a wedding photographer, I highly recommend Penny Palmer Photography. Penny Palmer and Darci Palmer are absolutely wonderful to work with. They put their hearts into the shoot and make everyone in your party feel part of the action. Darci also was our officiant and did an amazing job. Give them a call and let them help you with your special day!
First of all, I would like to say that it was a pleasure meeting you and getting to know both you and Penny before the wedding.
Secondly, Thank you for all the tips and helping us through from the very beginning to the very end.
Finally, THANK you for keeping it all together! Our party was bigger than usual, and it was a lot of work to keep my guests informed.
I am very happy with the results and I am very happy to have had you do this for us. We would recommend you anyone who wants to go through the lovely experience we did.
The whole ceremony was better than I had expected. It really covers the true tradition of Maui and that was what we were aiming for.

We had such an awesome time with these two amazing women. They made us feel at ease for every portion of our vacation and wedding in Maui. We had many adventures in the water from snorkeling to paddle boarding. Our wedding photographer, Penny was very professional and made our perfect day just that…Perfect. I would recommend them to anyone looking for that personal touch and utmost professionalism. Thank you again for an amazing adventure. See you soon for more photos.
Usually come onto yelp about bad customer service, but once in awhile you have such a good experience you are left feeling obligated to tell others about the experience.Super friendly, really great time. Made the photo session feel comfortable and natural. With the ability to photograph and video tape our session we didn’t miss a good moment.
Penny and Darci are an absolute pleasure to work with! This was my first ever portfolio shoot and they were easy-going, fun, and extremely patient with my “amateurishness”. They make a great team so I’d highly recommend them for anyone wanting to hire a professional they can easily communicate with. (In fact I’ve already tried to hire them again but they were booked!)

Thank you so much again for everything… you guys ROCK!”
