The whole photo session was very relaxed and laid back. Photographer was very professional, low key and humorous, which made our photo session very easy. We are very pleased with the pictures and would recommend Grins to Go Beach Portraits Maui without hesitation.

We had a great time celebrating our 30 year anniversary with professional pictures from Grins2Go. The photographer helped us to laugh and pose! and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Brenda helped us to narrow down so many choices and she was exceptionally easy to work. We felt like long time customers. Thank you for giving us a lifetime treasure for our family and our home. The portraits were better than any other souvenir we could have brought back from Hawaii.

We were in Maui for our 25th anniversary and celebrating our twins 16th birthday and were attracted to the amazing picture samples displayed inside our hotel. The entire experience was unbelievable, from the initial phone call, flexible scheduling, the photo shoot, the picture selection process and the arrival of our package a few weeks later. We were incredibly impressed with the relaxed nature of the photo shoot and how fun John made if for all of us. We did some unique poses and action shots that we all loved. If your looking to capture your family in a fun way, I highly recommend Grins2Go!

Wonderful experience getting family pictures in Maui with Grins 2 Go!!! Had a great time taking photos on the beach at sunrise. We were very pleased with the pictures. John and Brenda were so great to work with. I really loved having pictures and viewing all in the same day. We received our photos and canvas at our home with no problems. Thank you Grins 2 Go!!!!

I found Grins to Go on the internet and picked them due to their ratings- they did not disappoint! It was a great surprise to find that they were housed at our resort, the Hyatt. John did a fantastic job and we couldn't be more pleased, we loved several photos and had a difficult time deciding which photo we wanted to use as our canvas family photo- and there are several more we will print! Brenda was very patient, and had an efficient process to help us determine the photos we loved most. We loved the entire experience. If you are picky, if you and your spouse find it hard to agree on that one special family portrait- go to Grins to Go! Brenda can help the pickiest of families agree- she's really that good!

Our experience with Grins to Go was wonderful. We wanted to do a large family photo during our stay in Maui. Brenda was a delight to work with prior to us arriving. She got back to us with information in a timely fashion and we were able to book everything prior to arriving. John took some beautiful pictures. The beach location was perfect and he made it a fun experience for us all. He was also good at keeping the process moving along. Not easy with a large group. Brenda and John are professionals and make a great team. Our photographs are now framed and we have fond memories of our trip. Thank you again Grins to Go!

You guys were the best! The photo shoot was relaxed and incredibly engaging. John's pleasant personality, relaxed style and quick wit kept the entire family engaged and produced some of our best smiles ever. His tim8ng with the natural light changes were perfect. The final products were spectacular. They captured the beauty of our surroundings, the relaxed nature and joyfullness of our personalities burned deeply off the photographs. The canvases and book were of the highest quality and timely delivered with the care that such special family keepsakes needed to have. John and Brenda from start to finish treated us like prized customers they had known a lifetime and we would highly recommend them.

We are a repeat customer. We had family portraits done by Grins 2 Go in 2011. It was an outstanding experience, full of varied backgrounds, laughter and incredible finished photos. When our twins were ready for senior photos and we had a trip planned to Maui, I knew exactly who was going to take their portraits. As expected, John did an outstanding job! Thanks again Brenda & John!

I envisioned family portraits on the beach to be a great idea to surprise my daughter with for her 40th birthday. Of corse the planning of something so unique seemed a little stressful because I wanted everything to be just perfect. Me being in Washington and communicating via email and phone to Hawaii seemed rather daunting. To my relief, Brenda from Grins 2 Go made the entire process from start to finish a wonderful success! Brenda surpassed both my daughter's as well as my own expectations. Her communication, professionalism and kindness was something I will never forget. The pictures turned out gorgeous and my daughter couldn't be more pleased! The next time I go to Maui, I'm coming to join the portrait party with my daughter and our family and without a doubt using Grins 2 go!

I wanted a family photo taken since all our children were with us in Maui. Our experience with John and Brenda was wonderful. John took some fabulous photos and he really had to work to get some smiles from our 18 month old Granddaughter. The photo shoot went so quickly. Brenda was a big help in choosing our photos the following day. The photos came when they were promised. I definitely would would not hesitate to go back another time! Aloha,

We had such a wonderful experience with Grins 2 Go Beach Portraits. Brenda and Eric exceeded our expectations! Planning was very simple and easily coordinated with Brenda. Eric did a fantastic job with our photo shoot. He was waiting for us on the beach during our scheduled time and made it quick and easy with our two elementary school boys. The quality of our photographs is outstanding! Thank you, Brenda, for taking such good care of us. We can’t wait for our next experience with Grins 2 Go!

This was our first trip to Maui, so we wanted to have some nice memories to share with our friends and family. Since we were looking for a professional outfit to help us, we were fortunate to find Grins 2 Go in the resort area where we were staying. Brenda and John made us feel very comfortable from the photo shoot to the selection of our prints. Moreover, we never felt pressured into purchasing anything we did not want. I would give the highest recommendation to this family owned business, and will definitely look forward to dealing with them again when we return!

From the moment I made the reservation for the session to selecting my photos it was a great experience. The session was so fun and it brought out the beautiful smiles of my two sons that they hide (teenagers). Absolutely a positive experience and I loved all the pictures that is was very difficult to select from I am a happy customer and would highly recommend and use their photography services again.

Brenda and John were great to work with, as they were very professional. When I called to ask questions about setting up an appointment, Brenda got right back with me. We had an early morning family session with none of us really being morning people. John had a great sense of humor and really got us loosened up. We actually had a great time, as he made it a fun and memorable experience. John did a fabulous job with taking the photos and Brenda was helpful with all the photo packages they had to choose from. It was hard to pick out photos, as they all were good....so we got all the photos!! It's was a great family vacation, that we will all remember. Thanks John and Brenda!

What better way to remember our stay on Maui and celebrate a birthday than a photo shoot with John at Grins to Go. Brenda and John put us at ease and made the entire experience enjoyable. We were able to meet with Brenda an hour or so after our photo session and she walked us through the photos. We were very happy with our final photo choices. Thanks to Brenda and John, you gave us one of our favorite memories of our trip!

Great experience with our photographer. He was already set up when we arrived and went right to work after introducing himself and getting to know us a little. Very professional and had fun ideas. We unfortunately didn’t have sunset colors so we opted for the garden portraits this time around. We’ll keep our fingers crossed for better conditions next year.

I love my sunset pictures! We went to Maui for our 40th anniversary and decided to get our picture taken by a professional photographer. I did my research on the internet and there was no doubt that Grins 2 Go had the highest quality photos. I made an appointment. On the day we were supposed to have our pictures taken it was raining. I called Brenda and it was no problem to switch to a different day. We met John on the beach and he was so much fun to work with! I could tell that the pictures were going to be good by the way he had us pose and what he had us do. I was so excited when we went to view the pictures because they came out even better than I hoped for! People were even stopping to watch the photo presentation because they were so good! It only took a couple of weeks to receive them. What a great keepsake to remember our special time in Maui! I highly recommend Grins to Go! You won't be disappointed!

Three years ago we had John and Brenda make a photo album of our family on our January Maui vacation and it was so spectacular that we did another one this year. John was great in posing us and especially in captivating our 4 1/2 year old granddaughter. Brenda arranged our photos in a beautiful way and had a proof of our album ready for us to review only two days after the photo session. The album and photo CD arrived at our house in Massachusetts soon after we got home, and it really cheered us up on that cold snowy day. We are already planning to do another album the next chance we get to have the entire family back on Maui.

The Lapointe Clan - January 2, 2018 When we set up this photo shoot from Calgary, we could only hope by the assured voice of Brenda over the many miles. To say we were pleased with our meeting at the beach with photographer John would be an understatement. The non-stop banter and ideas of each shot kept us all in good humour. We always felt happy to try anything that was suggested and in many cases new to us. We all remained upbeat and open as the shoot completed and the sun set. It was truly a satisfying experience to meet Brenda in person. She couldn't do enough for us and we came away with the best of advice. This was truly a quality experience.

It was an AMAZING experience working with John and Brenda to commemorate our family vacation to Maui. The photos turned out beautiful! Brenda made it very easy to book a convenient time for our photo session. John was a fantastic photographer - very patient with our family as our 5-year old quickly became uncooperative. He was able to make it fun and capture great shots, even of our cranky kiddo! The final photos turned out so beautiful - exceptional quality and extremely professional! I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you, John & Brenda!

Grins 2 Go gave us the best portrait session on our family vacation in Hawaii. We were staying at the Hyatt hotel and saw their services in the hotel. We chose to do a beach portrait session. John was amazing at getting our family photos on the beach. He was terrific with our 7 year old daughter! Brenda met with us after and helped make choosing the photos easy! we had our photos within an hour to download! Memories are priceless and Grins 2 Go gave us a lifetime of memories. They mailed us our images on CD also. Thank you! The Hammond Family Camarillo, CA

We had a really wonderful and enjoyable experience with Grins 2 Go beach portraits in Maui. The photographer made it so easy for the kids & they really had a fun time pissing for the camera. Brenda was extremely helpful & accommodative as we decided kind of last minute to do the photoshoot & we were leaving the next day. And of course the pictures were so amazing & beautiful. Thanks Brenda for such an enjoyable & memorable experience.

The experience was this group was amazing. John, our family photographer, literally got down in the sand at Polo Beach with our two grandsons and became their friend prior to the sunset shoot. We had a 45 minute window and he made sure he captured us all and kept the boys engaged. It was fun and the end product was amazing. I would highly recommend Grins 2 Go Beach Portraits Maui.

Brenda and John made our maternity photo shoot an amazing experience! From scheduling to choosing and ordering digital copies, Brenda was so patient and thorough gave me all the best options. I went with a Dropbox link to the pics so I could print them on my own later. Note: multiple people printed copies and they all said they can tell it's great quality because the pics kept their clarity even after enlarging the photos to poster size. John was so fun and relaxed and allowed us to go over the 45 mins allowed by the photo shoot. He also allowed me to suggest my own poses which was great bc those were the ones I ended up buying. The location was easy to find and John was right on time waiting for us. Would definitely recommend their service for anyone wanting to make amazing memories in beautiful Maui!

My family visited Maui for my 50th birthday this past August and we decided to have a family photo session done at sunset. I'm SOOOO glad we found John and Brenda at Grins 2 Go because our experience was nothing less than spectacular! Arranging our shoot was a breeze with Brenda and she's so kind to follow up with emails and phone reminders. John was right on time but best of all he had us all laughing throughout the shoot. John knew just the shots to take, even the ones I didn't think I wanted but was wrong. My kids loved working with John which made our experience that much better. Thank you Brenda for making the viewing of our photos the very next morning and getting us our CD in a timely manner. Don't hesitate to hire Grins 2 Go for your family photos or whatever the occasion, you will not be sorry. Thank you John & Brenda for helping us to create a great Maui Memory!

Our experience with Grins2Go was awesome! Everyone was so kind and friendly with us from the start to the end. We were nervous about doing this because we have never had a family picture done on the beach. The pictures were absolutely breathtaking! We would highly recommend families to have their pictures taken with Grins2Go. It was most definitely worth it!

Brenda answered my initial call! We had a great conversation; she was very informative & helpful. She was professional, but also very friendly & approachable. I could tell she wanted to help me produce a treasured beach portrait for my family & me. She did not hurry me, & she allowed me to reserve two time slots, so that we could make our final choice on the time after we arrived. Her husband was prompt to the photo shoot. He was personable and creative with the poses. We had a lot of fun!! The proofs were emailed within days, and Brenda was so helpful to us with the selection of the best poses for our wall portraits. We were very pleased with the quality of the final products and couldn't believe how quickly they arrived at our home! Overall excellent experience!!
