Peek Inside: AGLOW Magazine Vol 3 with Maui Maka Photography

Kristy Taylor and Robyn Penn of Maui Maka Photography have completely surrounded themselves in their environment just like those underwater cameras. These photographers know that to truly know a subject, to fully grasp its truth, immersion is key. Luckily for them, and for us, their admirers, that total commitment takes place on one of the most magnificently breathtaking places on earth: the Hawaiian island of Maui. Through their images, Taylor and Penn bring that paradise to us.

“Our business is so overlapped with our lifestyle that it really has to hustle to keep up. For example, when life took us underwater, we invested in underwater gear. We are constantly pushing the boundaries. The ocean is a huge part of our lives between surfing, free-diving, and spearfishing. We take our photography with us everywhere we go,” says Taylor.

Maui Maka Photography was born from a desire to savor these moments in such a stunning atmosphere. Taylor and Penn both love nature. And with such heavenly vistas in Hawaii, they have a plethora of locations on the island that they love to photograph. They find that Maui offers such a wide range of gorgeous backdrops that they are never bored.

Their partnership in capturing this beauty started a decade ago when they first met and found their personalities and goals completed each other perfectly. Taylor is a whirlwind of energy, full of life and laughter, and Penn is the dreamer with a tendency to wander off. However, what they had in common was a lifelong curiosity for people and places, as well as a complete love for their home: the tropical paradise of Hawaii. This passion shows in every image they capture.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital.
