I can't say enough wonderful things about Grins 2 Go! Extremely professional and high quality photographers who have a very personal approach. Our sunset family picture was stunning, and each time we look at it, it brings back such wonderful memories of our time on the island. John and Brenda do a fantastic job and make this a really fun experience - John's ability to capture just the right settings at the right time really speaks to his level of experience. Second to none!!

Grins 2 Go did a fantastic job photographing our wedding at the Westin Maui. The overall experience from first meeting them at their kiosk by the Westin Maui to actually recieving all of our pictures in San Diego, CA. wes great! I would also like to add that their personal customer sevice was from the kiosk to the photograher was the best I have received in a long time. Great company!

The whole experience was fantastic, Brenda was so kind and down to earth, JT was friendly and funny, John was great helping us pick the pictures. I would highly recommend Grins2Go to everyone. The finished product is GREAT. What a natural portrait-no stiff suits, boring back grounds, just us being us on a beautiful beach. Thank you, all!!!!!

Thank you so much for a fun and flawless photo shoot. We were visiting Maui on vacation with our family and decided we wanted a beach background from our favorite place to visit. The shoot was organized, fun, and quick. Our photos were high quality and look amazing. We were very happy and satisfied with our photos. Thank you so much!

Very easy experience. The photographer could not have been better, very relaxing and comfortable. The woman who went over our pictures was great, also. Very kind, not a hard sell. We would do this, again and we would refer friends.

John is amazingly good at what he does. First, a professional photographer, second, working with people, and third, pulling off a high end quality product. He had a difficult task of working with a two year who knows when people are taking her picture and does not like it. John did it. We highly recommend this company.

We LOVED the experience! Had our photos taken at 7am Thanksgiving morning and the lighting was perfect, the beaches were empty, and the photographer was excellent! I loved the selection of photos taken too. Since it was the holidays, I really wanted my pictures and CD. They arrived at my door about 2 weeks after we left Maui. The photo book is such a great collection -- absolutely wonderful! Thanks so much for everything and Mele Kalikimaka!

We had no idea what to expect, and were pleasantly surprised at the ease of our experience. From the stress-free photography session with John, to the extremely organized ordering appointment. It took about 3 weeks to receive all of our portraits at home, and everything is gorgeous! We will most definitely do this again in the future!!

We recommend Grins to Go without hesitation. John was professional, efficient & a pleasure to work with during our photo session. He did a great job taking a variety of candid shots as well as posed shots. We chose the 8 AM slot because we wanted the vivid blue ocean to be pronounced in our photos. Our vacation photos turned out wonderful! Brenda was also an absolute pleasure to work with. From scheduling our photo shoot, confirming details, assisting us in choosing our photos, etc. The location of the Whalers Village kiosk was also great. If you are seeking photos in Maui, don't hesitate to go with Grins 2 Go!

We'd been thinking about having a family portrait taken on the beach for a few years and we're so glad that we finally did it. Grins 2 Go made it a very easy and fun experience. The pictures are beautiful!

I would likely recommend John and Brenda, at first it might seem expensive if you have eight or more people in the photos, but the speed and quality of their professional service was well worth it, totally satisfied, have already recommended them to three other families and newly weds planning on coming to Maui, you can trust them to capture your family vacation on film.

My husband and I were very impressed with the service that we received. John was amazing. He was very professional and attentive. I felt like we were celebrities. We can't wait for the finished product. The proofs looked great. It was hard to decide.

It was a very relaxing and fun experience. The photographer JT had his suggestions based on experience and he also asked and listened to what kind of photos we were looking for. Leslie was very helpful giving suggestions to what she felt was a great picture but also taking what we wanted into account. She never rushed us into making decisions, very patient woman. We have been wanting to do this for many years and the only thing we regret is not doing it sooner. Thank You !!!!

We had a family beach portrait done in 2009, and it was the first activity we planned when we decided to return in 2013. Leslie was helpful and professional, and we enjoyed working with JT on the beach in Lahaina. Everyone was accommodating and friendly- Mahalo!

Our photographer, John arrived right on time at our rental, ready to go. He was amazing and handled all 15 of us with ease. He delighted my grandchildren and had them cooperating and laughing the whole time. John was able to coerce the adults into following his direction! Our photos turned out to be beautiful and I know we will all be swept back to our family holiday on Maui when we look at our photos. Thank you so much!

Great experience overall! Leslie was very good at explaining all my options thoroughly and helping me to narrow down the final photo selection for my 16x20 portrait. I would recommend Grins 2 Go to any of my friends.

This was such a great experience for us! We stayed at the Hyatt and saw your storefront and walked in and from that point on the experience we had was awesome! Brenda was very accommodating with booking a morning to have the pictures taken and the morning we viewed the proofs. John was delight and made the photo shoot so enjoyable and captured great shots of us. Thank you both John & Brenda for helping us to bring back with us the wonderful memories we will always have on our first trip to Maui thru those beautiful photos. Can't wait for our order to arrive in the mail!! Thank you so much!

Our photographer John was awesome. We did the same session 4 years ago in front of Marriott, and though the pictures were good, John was a lot more professional. We were very happy with our pictures. We'll do it again on our next visit to Maui.

We had a great time with our "photo shoot" on the beach. We chose a Sunday morning slot which was great, because none of the businesses were open yet, the beach wasn't crowded, and it wasn't too hot! John was efficient and made the experience fun for our whole family (6 of us). Our pictures turned out great! Our photo shoot was complete in about an hour. Overall, we were really pleased with the experience given the fact that we were completely unfamiliar with the Maui area or the local photographers. I would recommend Grins 2 Go for others. Just note that any professional level photography is an investment, so be prepared to make the financial investment if you wish to capture your special vacation memories.

John and Brenda: We so enjoyed meeting you both. We found you friendly, professional, and confident in the product you were offering. This all translated into a low sales pressure transaction. I should include Leslie in that statement as well, as she worked with us to select our photos. John, you had the hardest job and did it so well, with such panache! We found your methods and demeanor just delightful...all of us, even the kids. We are looking forward to seeing the final result! Thank you again!

We had a great experience with John and Brenda. John was a lot of fun during the photo shoot and made it easy for us to smile and smile a lot, which we all know is tough to do. The pictures came out great and Brenda did a real nice job of helping us select the right ones. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for their ultimate remembrance of Maui.

We were very impressed with the flow of the session and how comfortable John made everyone feel. He definitely knew what he was doing. He was very professional and made it a fun experience for the entire family. Brenda was a pleasure to deal with and very patient when we were rather indecisive on what photos to choose. We recently received our photographs and they did a fantastic job.We love the large canvas print and would highly recommend Grins 2 Go. Great experience!!

Just wanted to let you know how great John the photographer was. He was such a blast to work with - especially with the size of our group (16) and a few little ones to work with! As well, we were all really happy with the finished product. I can't wait to get my canvas!
