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.

We knew we wanted a Maui sunset photo during our vacation. We googled Maui family photographer and called a few. Brenda was the only one who made everything so simple- we selected a date and she sent a confirmation with all the available photo packages. This is a first class company with Notdstrom service! The photo shoot was great and we are so happy with our photos - so many good ones that are absolutely amazing !!

I wanted a great family beach portrait and Grins 2 Go delivered! My daughters were not terribly excited about having to spend our vacation time taking portraits, but the experience from start to finish was enjoyable for all. Every part of it was professional, relaxing and fun, from scheduling the session to the time with John (who was great with the girls!) to viewing and selecting our portraits. We are thoroughly pleased! Our order arrived last week and the quality of our portraits is excellent. We love our memories of Maui!

Before our visit to Maui we scheduled an appointment with Grins 2 Go. I am so happy we did. My main goal was to get a picture of my family to hang on our fireplace over the mantle. Since vacationing is our favorite activity I figured a picture from Maui might work. From my phone call with John before we left right to picking out our picture it was a first class experience. First he was very informative and answered all my questions, even offering advice on our outfit options. Once we were there we changed the location of the shoot at their booth at Whaler's Village with no problem at all. John arrived before us the day of the shoot and the location at Front Street was everything that I could hope for in background options. John listened to what my goal was for the portrait and was open to suggestions for possible shoots but really he was so experienced no suggestions were really needed but I love that he offered that to me. The shoot was quick, easy and painless. When we meant for our proof viewing John's wife was very helpful in narrowing down our options for the ones we liked. I have to be honest they were all good so it was not getting rid of the bad ones, it was more like picking between similar shoots and finding which ones we really really loved as opposed to just loving it. The computer software they use to help you with the process of finding the right best shoots was easy to use and also easy to move between the pictures to compare them. We were left with over a dozen pictures that I could not live without so I purchased the digit version of them. When our prints and CD's arrived I was overly pleased with the final products. I would recommend John and Grins 2 Go to everyone I know that is heading to Maui. I will smile every time I look up at my fireplace and remember such a wonderful vacation and how happy we were.

The whole experiance was excellent Jackie was by far the best person on your team. She knows how to make the customer comfortable, but most of all she knows your product and there is no pressure to buy something you do not need.

Our photos turned out great, almost too great. The beach sunset was a perfect backdrop for our family portrait. Our photographer did an excellent job in bringing our our individual personalities. It was very hard to choose from the 40+ pictures that they had pared it down to. We received our first batch of pictures within 2 weeks and the big ones followed less than a week later. We are so proud to display them and show them off to our friends and family. It was a perfect way to commemorate one of the last big vacations with our college bound kids.

What a great group to work with. This was our second session in three years and it was wonderfully done. John does an amazing photo shoot and it was a fun experience. Brenda knew exactly how to work with us in presenting the photos and there was no hard sell. I would recommend Grins 2 Go to any body looking for exceptional photos.

We would like to compliment you again for a job well done! You took family pictures for us 5 years ago - we all enjoyed them and had many compliments, even been ask where we were to get the backdrop. Again the pictures turned out great for our family of 10. Job well done and dealing with 2, 10, 12, and 13 year old kids and families. We all looked forward to the repeat session, a compliment to you. Everything is done in an organized, quick, friendly manner with a personal feel for each family and person - to make it a fun experience for all. With a great recommendation we again thank You P. S. each person picked "their" picture shirt to make for another fun and colorful memory. We will go back in the future. Thanks from the Gelbrich family

This was our second experience with Grins 2 Go and once again we were highly satisfied with the entire experience and the end results. JT is a fantastic photographer and Brenda was so helpful in going thru the picture selection process with me. We had to change our appointment day/time a couple of times, and JT was incredibly flexible and never made us feel like we were a hassle. Having these portraits done was the perfect way to capture the amazing time we had on our family trip to Maui. Thank you!!!

I had always admired the beautiful portraits at the Grins 2 Go kiosk every time we had come to Maui so when I decided this year to have family portraits done I knew I wanted to have Grins 2 Go do them. I was not disappointed! John made the sitting fun and painless, even for the family that wasn't too excited about having their pictures taken. We were able to view the pictures the next day and were really happy that there were so many great shots to choose from. Leslie helped us choose our favourite ones as it wasn't easy to narrow down. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to use Grins 2 Go again!

For a group of 16 including 2 babies it was not an easy task but John was fantastic! We are so very happy with our family portraits. It was fun and he moved us quickly knowing exactly how it should be done for best results. Brenda showed us the packages and was not pushy in her selling. I would highly recommend Grins 2 Go!

My wife and I were in Maui to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted something to remember our trip by. We were not sure what but on our way to breakfast we passed the desk of grins to go. We called and left a message and Brenda called us back within 20 minutes. She set up an appointment with us and from the first time we met her she was fabulous. We booked are time with our photographer and that too was easy and convenient. He showed up on time and did a superb job at capturing us and preserving a very special time for us. After our time with the photographer we met with Brenda once more a couple of days later and was just extremely pleased with all of the pictures. It was hard to choose so we bought several. We felt no pressue from Brenda only an honest opinion. We would recommend grins 2 go to everyone. Terrific people too trust that special day or time too.

Responded to my inquiry immediately. Great customer service. Good times for our spot were available. Lots of photos were taken and we had lots of choices when it came time to pick our portraits. Our portraits almost arrived home as soon as we were home. It was also the time I normally send Christmas cards me we were given all of our portraits via Drop Box. Very convenient. Everyone who he seen our portraits were in awe of the quality of the photography. As are we. We are thrilled with our experience and our keepsake portraits from a vacation of a lifetime. Thank you!!

We had a great time spending time together on the beautiful beach in Lahaina. The sunset was beautiful and spending time as a family specifically for pictures is something we have not done in awhile. It was a great way for us to remember our wonderful time in Maui. We had a wonderful time picking out our photos with Brenda...she was excellent with our kids and so friendly and patient. We felt like we really got to know her and her family. We will be sure to visit her again when we are in Maui in 2016.

We loved our pictures we had taken at the Hyatt Waikoloa, last year and thought we would get them done again, at the Maui Hyatt. Didn't think it was possible... but they were BETTER! We absolutely LOVED the whole experience. John was amazing. He was enthusiastic, efficient with our time and absolutely amazing with our toddler. All the time being exceptionally professional and fun. And best of all we have some of the most amazing photos we will cherish for a life time. We get photos done every year and these are some of our all time favourites. We all look natural, happy and fabulous. Can't thank you enough! We will be back to the island and you can count on us being back to see you! Thanks again!

We absolutely love our family Beach Portraits. Our photographer was awesome and was very flexible working with us due to changing weather. Brenda also went out of her way to meet with us early in the morning to review our photos. The canvas hanging over our fireplace will be cherished and be a reminder of how wonderful our trip to Maui was!! We will definitely get photos here again on a future trip! Thank you!!

We stayed at the Hyatt for our honeymoon where John and Brenda have their studio. We decided to do a photo session after seeing their work/portraits. John is without a doubt the best photographer we have ever met. Wish he was our wedding photographer too :). He loves what he does and makes the photo session fun. Throughout our session he was very patient and flexible which is always a plus. All the pictures came out really good. We did the photo viewing with Brenda at their studio. It was really hard to pick the best photo for the canvas out of the many John took as they were all really good. Brenda helped us pick the best. We received the canvas in 3 weeks as promised and it was beautiful. Thank you John and Brenda.

We enjoyed the experience and were pleased with our family photos. Our photographer worked very well with our 2 yr old and really helped to get some great pics of her. The price of our package was very reasonable and the process was painless from beginning to end. We will certainly return for more pictures as our family grows here next year.

We want to thank John and Brenda for making our dreams come true. We had a vision of exchanging vows on the beach of Hawaii. They were able to capture that vision perfectly. John was fun to work with and Brenda helped us navigate our proofs to pick the best shots. They made it all very easy and fun.

The pictures that Grins to Go took on our trip captured the magic of our trip. We had 4 generations of smiles in our pictures. It's a trip that we'll always remember and now have the pictures that captured those memories for us. THANKS! Kelley Digby

Our entire process was very easy from beginning to end. From scheduling our appointment, meeting our photographer and reviewing the photos for edit/order. Our photographer, JT, was on time and did a tremendous job despite high winds, 2 children (1 of them a 13 year old who didn't want to be there or have his picture taken) and a mom who is never happy with photos of herself. Our pictures turned out great! What I loved about the process is that I never felt like I was pressured to order additional pictures. Everyone was helpful and we're extremely happy with our pictures! The delivery time was even faster than I expected. I would highly recommend Grins 2 Go Beach Portraits Maui.

John and JT really know what they are doing! They produce extremely high quality images that my wife and I will be proud to display in our home, and give to family as gifts. I am a professional portrait photographer back home so I know what it takes to produce great outdoor images in varied lighting conditions (mid-day...sunset...etc.) JT has the experience to capture a great image that is not a snapshot, but a piece of art! We are extremely satisfied and highly recommend Grins2Go Beach Portraits Maui!
