About Cassie Pali

Capturing the beauty and grace that is found underwater, I create fine art pieces that showcase Hawaiian Culture, Goddesses, and Mermaids in this ethereal world. Marrying the beauty of underwater photography with fine art digital painting, I work with my clients and models to capture unique images in a liquid environment and then manipulate the images to create custom art.

Watercolor paper, canvas, acrylic, metal, archival photographic paper, and Giclee prints are a few of the final artwork choices offered. Visit my studio to find out more about my art collections as well as to find out how you can become a piece of art on your next Hawaiian vacation. 


I love photography and have been a professional photographer for two decades. I started with film and switched to digital over time.  I began my career as a wedding planner. It was my way of getting started in photography and his given me a unique perspective of the needs that brides have on their big day. 

I have diversified my business to cover many areas of photography. Today I don't do just weddings; I also do family photos, boudoir sessions, travel, underwater, adventure, babies, fine art, and even some still life photography. Diversifying my skills over time has made me good at what I do. Five years ago I started working in the underwater world. OMG... I love it!

I’ve traveled around the world, with my camera at my side whether I was working for a client or just wondering by myself. I’ve captured many moments and have created books on all of these travels. Never in my life would I have thought I would make a living as a photographer.

I’m also a mom, daughter, grandma/Nana, adventure lover, surfer, paddler, free diver and a motorcycle rider. 

I'd love to talk to you about taking your photos here on Maui.
