It’s no surprise that 82% of the the people traveling to Hawaii are coming to vacation, honeymoon or are planning to get married. This couple is apart of that 82% who traveled to Maui for their honeymoon and decided to have a couples / honeymoon photos taken during their visit.
The couple shared that they were staying in Kaanapali at one of the major hotels and when they contacted me, and were looking for photos in front of their hotel. I had to inform them that commercial photography was prohibited on the beach in front of their hotel and so we agreed to meet up and do their couples portrait session at Kapalua Bay about a 15 minute drive north of their hotel. The location offers a diverse set of backdrops to choose from which was appealing to the couple and for me as Maui photographer this location is one of the best ones on the West side of Maui. As you can see from the photos, there’s a wonderful grassy knoll overlooking the ocean with Palm trees and various greenery surrounding the area. The beach itself is a long narrow beach and off to one side there is a great spot that has large boulders that you can climb on during the sunset which make for a very romantic setting for couples photos.. If your looking for a great location in West Maui, Kapalua Bay may be the spot for you.
