Couples are getting ready for their summer vacations in Maui and are looking for fun things to do together that will bring every lasting memories. I have the perfect solution, a couples portrait session on the beach.
Clients often ask us what beaches make for the best locations for their portrait session. I always ask them what side of the island their staying as most clients prefer to near their hotels, while others on the West side of Maui sometimes will consider making the drive to the South side. The West side of Maui is also called known as the “Lahaina”side has some limitations on where you can take photos on the beach due to a law in place that prevents commercial photography on the beaches of Kaanapali. With that in mind, the best places for photography on the West side is really limited to two locations: Kapalua Bay and IronWoods Beach. Ironwoods Beach is a wonderful location that offers a lot of diversity in backdrops, however, the one drawback is you cannot see the sunset from that location, thus leaving only Kapalua Bay for a sunset shoot on the West side. The most popular photography locations on the South side are: Makena Cove, Paipu Beach, Poolenalena or Makena Surf. There are many more beaches in south Maui that make great locations however, some of them tend to be more populated.
This sweet couple recently visited Maui and were staying in West Maui and wanted a early morning shoot before they left to the airport. We ended up at Poolenalena Beach which has a long stretch of beach to walk on all alone with your sweetheart. We have a strong team of photographers waiting capture you and your loved one on one of the many beaches of Maui this summer.
