Feb. 9, 2009 - PRLog -- Local Maui Wedding Photograher, Photography on Maui, has been selected by the California based wedding periodical, Ceremony Magazine, as a featured photographer for their 2009 Orange County edition.  Partners Bill Stockwell and Scott Drexler both participated in the shooting of the Melanie Villanueva and Edvin Talusan wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Hawaii, that was used by Ceremony Magazine.

California brides have several slick publications to choose from in planning their event, but Ceremony has purposely set out to be most prestigious of the lot.  Their pages are filled with panoramic views, amazing gowns, and romantic poses.  In addition, Ceremony has created three local versions of its magazine.  One covers Los Angeles, one Orange County, and still another for San Diego.  This provides the bride with local supplier information, easing her job in preparing for the big day.

Photography on Maui is used to being in the spotlight.  Other Wedding Magazines, such as Pacific Rim Weddings, have been using Bill Stockwell's photos for years.  The 2009 edition includes shots from the wedding of Hinder lead singer Austin Winkler and actress Jami Miller.

Bill is well known throughout California and Hawaii for his journalistic style and his easy manner. Bill maintained a wedding photography business in the Bay Area and Napa Valley California for most of his career, choosing to leave one paradise for another six years ago.  "My wife and business partner, Judy, and I decided to re-establish the business in South Maui to take advantage of the year-round wedding weather.  And while we had some amazingly beautiful settings in the valley, there is no better backdrop for a wedding shot than the sunsets and vistas in Maui.

Adding Scott Drexler to their team in 2007, the company expanded to the Lahaina, Kaanapali end of the Island.  Bill continues, "Scott is an outstanding photographer and moves easily and gracefully among the wedding participants.  He is a crowd pleaser and a favorite of our MOB's.  With him on our team we have greatly increased our visibility here in Maui and now cover Wailea, Kihei, and all the way up the coast to Napili."
