Our goal in providing engagement and couples portraits is to provide you photos that will truly highlight your special moment that you can treasure for a lifetime.
Whether you are having an engagement session or a couple’s portrait shoot, we recommend having these sessions on the beaches here in Maui, especially the West Side or South Side. After all, how can you go wrong with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world? Along the west side, we love Kapalua Beach, Ironwoods/Oneloa and DT Flemings. Each beach has very different views and landscapes. On the south side, we recommend Po'olenalena Beach, Wailea Beach, Makena Surf and Maluaka Beach. If you want something more than a beach, we are also more than happy to come to your resort or condo to photograph you there as well!
In terms of setting your appointment time, we suggest having your session either in the early morning or at sunset. Not only are these times of the day the most beautiful, we also don't want harsh overhead lighting that you will get in the middle of the day and the shadows it brings with it. It can be a little unflattering to your skin. In addition, any time of the year is a great time to visit and have photographs taken in Maui, but if you’re planning on being here in January or February, these months tend to be a bit on the rainy side. If you’ve never been to Maui before, don’t worry too much about it because the rain here is quite the same rain you might get elsewhere.
When it comes to your attire for your engagement photos, we think that you should go with solid colors because they typically photograph well. Bold patterns tend to run the risk of being distracting, so we recommend softer colors. Also, neutrals such as light blues, creams, greens, whites, or soft pinks make for excellent choices, especially if your session is on the beach. If you want to include anything personal as a memory keepsake in your photos, we encourage it, such as hakus, leis or any other item. We also prefer going barefoot in your photos, so you shouldn’t have to worry too much about proper footwear.
