Big Apple to Paradise – Stephanie & Murad’s Maui Elopement Photography


Last Updated on March 28, 2021 by Karma Hill

This sweet Brooklyn couple traveled long and far with many restrictions in order for us to capture their gorgeous Maui elopement photography in paradise! Getting to Maui is no easy task with all our regulations. For anyone willing to put in the work you will be rewarded with beauty and relaxation! We feel blessed to have been a part of Stephanie & Murad’s Maui wedding!

Murad’s favorite band is Counting Crows and he always knew he’d love a girl who loved Counting Crows just as much as he did. When he came across a profile on OkCupid that listed her favorite band as Counting Crows he had to send Stephanie a message! He was so excited that he sent her a novel long message and somewhere in there asking what her favorite song was. She replied with 2 words “favorite song ?? ;)”  If it wasn’t for the winky face he would have thought it a lost cause! Obviously it wasn’t a lost cost, it was a means to a deeper connection. To think this is where they are today is pure joy!!
