About Us

Richard Marks feels that it is truly an honor each and every time he receives the request to photograph a wedding. He does everything in his means to deliver to his clients exquisite photos, photographed with the deepest spirit of aloha, and with the highest technical and artistic standards possible.

Richard loves shooting weddings and prides himself in building warm and friendly relationships with his clients (he also receives great joy in giving surprise gifts to his clients in the spirit of aloha whenever possible). This creates a genuine rapport that allows him to capture clients images with great artistry, joy, and sensitivity.

Richard  is an award-winning photographer, and owner of Aloha’ia Wedding Photography, Richard Marks Photo and Maui Professional Photographers. He added  photographing weddings to his photography repertoire in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1992 when he  was invited to collaborate photographing  a wedding in Sonoma County with his friend and fellow Getty photographer, Trinette Reed.

Richard has been photographing weddings in Maui since his move there in 2001. His photographs are distributed worldwide by Getty Images and Blend Images and have been published world wide in magazines and on CD, DVD, websites, book covers and major ad campaigns. Richard brings the world class standards that Getty Images requires to distribute photos globally to every one of his wedding shoots.

Richards photography is superior to any I have ever seen. Truly ethereal work. I will not be surprised the day I walk by a magazine rack and see that he is the photographer named for the front cover shot of Vogue. Truly a top notch photographer!
