Romantic Couples Photography on Maui

Maui can be a very romantic place, especially on a world-class beach at sunset. Maui has gorgeous sunsets! Romantic couples photography on Maui is an activity that can be fun, and provide a valuable take away product, in terms of images you can keep, print and share for many many years, indeed, your entire lifetime. Gwen and Julien were here on Maui from France and wanted some standout images of their time on this magic isle. And so, we provided, as did the weather presenting a beautiful show, which is not uncommon.

Although there are many beaches to choose from on Maui, one of the better beaches for romantic couples photography on Maui is Kamaole III Beach park, which offers not only a wide expansive beach, but lave rock outcroppings which add to the scene. So, if you’re a couple, whether newly wed, or celebrating a silver anniversary (or a more recent one), give us call and let’s arrange one of Maui’s enjoyable activities, with a tangible product you will value for a long time to come.

After The Wedding Ceremony

Ben and Genet were not married on Maui; but, they wanted to take some pictures on Maui in her wedding gown. She brought her gown to Maui specifically to capture some images of the wedding attire while on the beach. So, we found a beach to their liking, walked around, and took some pictures, which turned out pretty nice, and will be a nice a addition to the wedding album.

Dancer Nathaniel Hunt

Dancer Nathaniel Hunt was in Maui for a month,  performing for Adaptations Dance Theater’s Bring It Home. Residing in New York, where he is described as a mover, an educator and a creator, some time on Maui is not a common experience. So, while here, why not get some photos for the portfolio. We met one late afternoon at the Kealia Coastal Reserve beach in north Kihei, and captured some images. The still images contained in this post can give a little glimpse of Nathaniel’s elegance and grace. For more information about Nathaniel Hunt, visit his website at:

Family of 9 Portraits on a Maui Beach at Sunset

Large families, categorized as such at Maui Island Portraits as a group of 7-10 (+), can be particularly challenging, and fun; it’s a pleasant time to be at the beach and enjoy the sunset, talk story and capture some planned images, of the family. A family of 9 portraits on a Maui beach at sunset results in more than one image. The collection of images in a full set is usually well over several dozen. It can be hard to pick out the few very most favorite, which may differ from person to person in the family. This post showcases 6 images from the collection.

Shooting Into The Sun Portrait Photography – Maui Island Portraits

Shooting into the sun portrait photography can produce stunning, standout images. But, without fill flash, all you’d get is a dark subject, and well exposed sun, or well exposed subject, and a way overexposed, aka ‘washed out,’ sun. Fill flash is artificial light, balanced in terms of temperature, ie, the color hue of the light, and ambient light luminosity. When balanced, the flash fills in enough light so the sun in the background is well exposed, while at the very same time, the subject in the foreground is also well exposed. Sometimes, the sun is muted by clouds, which can give a nice soft ambience; sometimes, the sun is bold and bright, requiring more fill flash to create the balance of light. Sometimes, the sun is above the horizon, just before setting, and sometimes, right after the sun has set makes for a softer more moody image. Either way, shooting into the sun portrait photography can yield some very pleasing results….

You can’t really do this with a cell phone, or a point and shoot camera. The flash they have built in is not powerful enough, and does not have the control necessary to make the required adjustments to balance the light just right. So, if you’re interested in this kind of portrait photography, for yourself, as an individual, or as a couple, or as a family, and you are planning on a trip to Maui, contact us. We’re available to provide you with shooting into the sun portrait photography at any one of Maui’s premier world-class beaches.
