Romantic South Maui Engagement Photos
Before these two came to Maui on vacation, they were in touch to set up a session. These two came all the way from New York and wanted to get romantic South Maui engagement photos taken while they were here on vacation. We started out in the lava fields down in South Maui. We had great cloud cover in the beginning of our session which enabled us to get some great photos with Haleakala in the background. And the shots with the lava rock in them stole the show.
From there we stopped at one of my favorite little coves where we had some yummy golden light pouring through the trees. Quickly, we found this awesome rock wall. I asked Jason and Jess to smooch after they climbed to the top of it. These two were up for any romantic shots I asked them to get cozy for.
Next we went over to Secret Cove. We had this location mostly to ourselves. One of my favorite things about Secret Cove that day was the little shore break. As the water crashed into the lava rocks and sent a shower into the air, it created these gorgeous, dramatic beach shots. I loved this session so much, not only because of the connection between this couple, but also because we had a lot of fun playing with the light. At first, the light was reflecting off the ocean beautifully. But later, the light poured through the trees.
After we were done at Secret Cove we headed over to one of my favorite locations a little further north where we got some delicious back lighting. The wind played with Jess’s hair, which you know, makes me a super happy photographer!
We ended our session on Po’olenalena Beach. We had the beach mostly to ourselves. To end the shoot, there was a soft, pastel sunset. The perfect ending to a wonderful session!
Jess and Jason: Thank you for choosing me to take your romantic South Maui engagement photos. The light was amazing and you two looked fabulous in every shot! Congratulations on your engagement!
