My name is Richard Marks, MA and I've been a professional photographer for 33 years, including being a former Getty Images photographer.

Upon moving to Maui 23 years ago, I created my own photography company, MauiProfessionalPhotographer, and I am also currently the main photographer for the Maui Vision Magazine, having done over 37 front covers for that magazine in the past 10 years. I have also been chosen to be the main photographer for The Neighbors and Friends of Wailea and Makena Magazine.

Since moving here from The San Francisco Bay Area in 2001, I’ve photographed over 1000 Maui Weddings for Maui's finest wedding co-ordinators including White Orchid Weddings and Tropical Maui Weddings. Ive done Family Shoots for Time Magazine Person of the year Terry Cruz and his family as well as many professional promotional shoots including CD covers for Grammy recording artists.

Before I share more details of my professional photography services, I wish to share some feedback from my photoshoots.

Hello Richard!
I wanted to extend heartfelt thanks to you for the beautiful world class quality of our photographs! We will be printing and framing them as soon as possible upon our return to put in our LA home! We are SO VERY PLEASED WITH OUR PHOTOS! Thank you for everything and warmest aloha to you!

"This was our second shoot in Maui with Richard. When we found out our family was headed back to Maui for a trip, I immediately thought of Richard. I knew it was time for another family photo shoot. Richard was willing, patient and kind as we went through outfit changes and became our own directors of the shoot. Richard makes everyone feel so comfortable and included. We plan to have Richard as our family photographer. Not just in Maui, but wherever he’d be willing to travel for us."
Mahalo Richard!

"Richard made our engagement photo session just as memorable as the beautiful images he captured. He paid attention to the details and used mother nature to naturally enhance our images. We had so much fun during this shoot and certainly stepped out of our comfort zone, with ease. I will be recommending Richard to my friends and family on their future trips to Maui and would encourage you to entrust him with capturing special moments during your time."

"Working with Richard was such a pleasure. We hired him to photograph our small family during our vacation in Maui. He took a wide variety of shots, so we got exactly what we wanted; high quality, professional family photos that we can print and display in our home to enjoy for years to come. Richard is a first-rate photographer, easy to work with and delivers quality work at a reasonable price point. I highly recommend him for your family photo sessions. Thanks so much, Richard!"


"I highly recommend Richard Marks for your family photos. Richard was extremely easy to work with as he captured our family of 17 in the most incredible photos we could have ever imagined! We are all thrilled with the finished product and will be forever grateful for his patience, his joy, his flexibility and his skill in taking such beautiful photos of our family.
We are all so appreciative of the work you have done.
Mahalo and Aloha, Kathleen and Family

From my family celebrity shoot with Family Crews in Wailea, Maui

From Whoopee Goldberg:

"All I can so about my photographer friend Richard Marks is:


From Rock Star Steven Tyler:

"Richard Marks is like a crazed rock star as he shoots with his camera.
One second on his knees, then flat on his back, then flipping onto his belly, the rocketing up and spinning in the air shooting above his head....
his flash pop explosions and machine gun shutter releases firing off like some vicious rock drum beat!
Shooting every angle he can grab while sometimes dancing wildly with delight and all the while beaming his Alfred E. Newman gap toothed smile!
-Steven Tyler
