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!!

My parents took my sister and I and my nieces on a family trip to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary and my Mom's 70th birthday. These pictures captured our trip and family perfectly! We loved working with John, our photographer, and we are not an easy bunch. Brenda was very easy to work with and the whole experience was very positive and the end results were fantastic! We love all the pictures so much, it's hard to decide which ones to frame. Highly recommend!

It's always hard to get a family of all boys to be excited about doing family portraits. We were felt at ease right away. Brenda and John were so easy to work with. John was fun and really understood taking pictures of teenage boys. I loved the portraits and can't wait to send them out as Christmas cards as well as framed and in our family room for us to enjoy for years to come. We will definitely use John again when we come back to Maui.

My husband and I were in Maui celebrating our 20th year anniversary and wanted something special to express the love we have for each other. I was very satisfied with the job John did capturing those moments for us. Our photos showed exactly what I wanted them to show. I am happy that I chose Grins 2 Go out of all the photographers available for portraits. They made our special time very special. John and Brenda are very professional as well as giving you that personal experience. I love every photo that was take. I would recommend them to all my family and friends.

Grins 2 Go is outstanding and located right at the resort!!! We took a family vacation to Maui this spring and wanted high quality photographs taken of our time together in Hawaii. John’s photography is one of the best I have ever seen. He is creative in his choice of locations and photography techniques. John and Brenda Andrick, owners of Grins 2 Go Beach Portraits Maui, are very friendly and go the extra mile to make sure that you are completely satisfied.

Our entire experience with Grins 2 Go was spectacular. I know it is hard working with a larger group, almost like herding kittens, but the end result was great. we came away with a variety of shots that everyone enjoyed. I would highly recommend Brenda and John to anyone looking to get photos done.

It was such a joy to work with Brenda and John again. John was at the appointed location before we arrived. He had a clear idea of the types of photography that would work best for us. He is a true professional. The review of photos was the next day. Brenda is a delight; she was friendly and encouraging as we reviewed the photos. She seemed to ask just right questions to help us choose the best poses and sizes that would fit our needs. Highly recommend John and Brenda. Best Wishes to them and their family.

John was excellent with our photography session. Our young adult son has autism, and we weren't quite sure how it would go. The hour flew by, and was actually really fun! John was funny, patient, and above all, quick and clear with his directions. The final result was amazing, and only left me wondering why we waited 20 years to do it!! Brenda was awesome at answering questions before, and after as we made our selections. Thank you for capturing an awesome trip!

We have trusted Grins2Go since 2008. They have always gone above and beyond to make sure that quality of the photography was excellent, the location of the shots were perfect and just as importantly, we have always had fun doing it. John knows exactly how to capture the perfect picture at the perfect time. The entire experience is seamless from start to finish. We received our pictures really quick each time we have used them and look forward to the next trip! Very professional and would definitely recommend them to anyone!!

After checking out several photographers online, I chose Grins to Go because of their experience, location, and prices. I was not disappointed! The photographer, John was very good, friendly, knew how to work well with twin 1 year olds. The pictures turned out beautiful. It was so hard to pick out the one for my mantle. I was also pleasantly surprise that there was no hard sell on what package to purchase. Everyone one I talked to or worked with was amazing. I highly recommend Grins to Go for anyone wanting quality photos on Maui.

My 6 children were reluctant to go through a formal photo shoot so I warned John before we got started. He moved us through the 4 locations at the Hyatt efficiently and with such a positive attitude that we got some great shots. You'd never know they were unenthusiastic! Brenda was wonderful with the selection process and the product is really nice. My son's shirt was open in one spot and John edited the picture beautifully. Thank you!

We had the most amazing experience. John was very professional and so much fun. It was just pure joy working with him. He was great to put everyone at ease and had great skills with the kids. Also, his shots were great with tons of variety. He made the shoot the experience of the day. We all love doing it together. Brenda was so helpful and dealt with some issues so professionally. We love them both and hope to be able to do it again in the future. Rich & Bonnie

Grins 2 Go photography was one of the best experiences of our Hawaiian vacation. Setting up the appointment was so easy and Brenda was wonderful to work with in establishing a time and the type of session my family wanted to have. John made the photo session a blast, and even though a few of my family members were originally not thrilled with me making the appointment, nobody complained during or after the session. And the final photo results were absolutely gorgeous and a beautiful memory of our trip to Maui. Would definitely schedule another session with them when we return to Maui!

Thank you Grins to Go for the amazing photos of my family You allowed us to capture a memorial experience on canvas to share with our friends and family. Our family of 7 adults, a 6 yr old, a 2 yr old, and a 4 month old made picture taking a challenge! But The photographer was great with the children and worked very quickly so not to make it difficult for the babies!! But he did an amazing job and we had so many to choose from, and all of them were beautifully captured! I chose to purchase them all, and have a large canvas created by G2G to hang in my home! Brenda was wonderful to work with, and she did a few minor touch ups for me, and had my canvas delivered to my home within the two week window!! I can't thank Grins 2 Go enough for the experience and the gift of my babies on canvas to look at everyday, and to reflect back on our exquisite trip to Mauii. My sincere thank you, Kim Knapp

We were in Maui with our entire family of sixteen celebrating our 80th birthdays. We wanted pictures of the entire group in order to remember the wonderful experiences we shared while all together. We certainly achieved that with the wonderful pictures John took and was able to catch the poses of the entire group ranging in ages all the way down to 3 months. The family responded by their enthusiasm with the setting on the beach. Both John and Brenda treated us in a very professional manner in selecting our pictures. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

We had our family portraits taken with our children for our 25th wedding anniversary. I usually dread family portraits, but John was so much fun! We were laughing and racing around the beach, trying to get as many shots as we could during the sweet sunset moments. And both Brenda and John were so accommodating, we had to reschedule our appointment at the last minute due to a flight delay, and they were super nice about it. Our portraits are amazing, and we laugh every time we look at them remembering how much fun we had that evening with John. And Brenda was delightful to work with when we met to make our selections. Thank you both for a wonderfully memorable experience and for our beautiful portraits!!

John was fabulous! He spent time working with my autistic grandson to capture those perfect pictures! He went out of his way to find a chair for me (as I am handicap), and can't stand very long. He captured the beautiful sunset, great smiles, and made our photo time memorable! Would recommend Grins2Go without reservation. Brenda was kind, courteous, not salesman pushy and we enjoyed working with her! Thank you for capturing these great memories!!!

We absolutely loved our family pictures, they turned out beautifully. Even more than that John and Brenda went above and beyond to make our experience a memorable one. John found a way to get both of our boys to laugh and engage during the session. That's a tall order, especially get a serious teenager to laugh and smile! Brenda was warm and friendly and sealed the deal for us. The quality of photos along with the experience was PHENOMENAL. We will definitely be using them every time we visit Maui. Thanks again Brenda and John!

Our experience was definitely 5 stars. Scheduling was easy. The photographer picked an excellent location and was amazing to work with. He was really good with our 5 year old grandson and captured the moment exactly the way we wanted him to. Selecting our favorites and ordering prints was quick and easy.

John and Brenda were awesome. They were very easy to book a session with. Of course the Hyatt provided a beautiful site to photograph at. John worked so hard with my kids and our portraits were fantastic. We will definitely book with them again.

We were on our family vacation in Maui during the Christmas holiday and wanted to take family photos to celebrate a great year. We truly enjoyed meeting John and Brenda from Grins to Go who made it a fun and memorable experience during the photo shoot and when reviewing the photos to select. We proudly display our family photo in our home with fondest memories. Mahalo Nui Loa Grins 2 Go!

Everything about our photo experience was great. John & Brenda are extremely friendly, professional, knowledgeable & easy to work with. John knew where he wanted to take our photos &, amazingly, had us easily changing poses. He was happy to not only take group photos, but also pictures of just our daughter & pictures of just my husband & myself. He was so laid back & friendly, it was like having pictures taken by an old friend. It was the same working with Brenda when we scheduled our appointment & when we met with her to look at our photos. We never felt pressure to buy. That said, all three of us, including our teenage daughter, were stunned by how fantastic ALL the pictures were. We not only bought all the pictures, but also had two enlargements made. The enlarged metal photo is incredible. Everyone who has seen our photos has told us how how great we look &, realizing they are professional pics without us having said anything, ask who took them. We strongly recommend Grins 2 Go to everyone, individuals & families, & for all occasions, ranging from a family photo while on vacation to a wedding. Brenda & John & Grins 2 Go receives 5 stars!!

We really enjoyed our photo shoot with Grins 2 Go! The session was like a tour of all the most scenic places around the resort and on the beach. Our photos are beautiful and remain our favorite souvenirs from a special family vacation. Thank you Grins 2 Go! The Albright Family San Diego, California

Since the entire family isn't often together, we decided to have a family portrait done while in Maui. I couldn't be happier with the results! There were six adults, as well as two granddaughters - only 2 1/2 and 4. John was absolutely incredible with the girls. I don't know how the entire session could have gone any better. John got wonderful shots of everyone and kept the girls laughing at the same time. If you want a quality experience and a fabulous picture, Grins 2 Go is the choice.
