Looking for unique Hawaii beach photoshoot ideas? This is the blog post for you! Whether planning a family vacation, Maui babymoon, sunset proposal or anything in between, we’re covering some of the most popular sessions photographed in Hawaii.
Take it to the beach for your portrait session
The beach is the perfect location to photograph portraits in Hawaii. And no two are alike! Whether volcanic black sand, coarse sand speckled with coral fragments or soft and golden, Hawaii beaches hold so much beauty. Here are some ideas of how to capture this natural wonder in your portrait sessions while visiting.
Sunrise splash in swimwear
I’ll never forget the first sunrise we photographed: still ocean, empty beaches, next to no wind. If the swell is low and water safe to enter, why not cool off with a splash at the end of your shoot?! Outfit hack: wear a bikini under your first outfit and take your first outfit off for a superwoman-style change on the beach.
Ocean portraits with a unique perspective
We’re Love + Water for a reason! Ocean portraits are some of our favorite to capture. Using a water housing, Adam photographs these sessions to inject a unique water element in to sunrise and sunset portrait sessions.
