Hi! We're Shawn + Adam

We're husband and wife who formed our Love + Water Photography team on Maui in 2014. Since then we've created a series of weddings and sessions from the land + sea, drawing inspiration from the gorgeous colors of Maui sunrises and sunsets.

Why Visit Maui for your Babymoon?

Travelling to Maui for your babymoon is easy, with many airlines providing direct flights to OGG from mainland destinations. There are many other reasons to start dreaming up Maui Babymoon Ideas, too!

1. It can be as low-key or as exciting as you want

Travel while pregnant can really take it out of you. What you want to do with your time on Maui is up to you. Relax with days spent lounging in the sunshine and nights sipping mocktails at sunset, or get a bit more adventurous with a trip to Hana (just be sure to pack your nausea remedy!)

2. Jet lag will have you up early to enjoy Maui sunrises

If you’re visiting Maui from the mainland, you’ll likely be rising before or with the sun. Take advantage of this early wake-up by enjoying sunrise from the beach. While you’re at it, arrange and enjoy a sunrise photoshoot with us!

Date night at The Birdcage Bar at Hotel Wailea

The Birdcage Bar is our personal favorite for a date night.

With a delicious menu, assortment of cocktails and mocktails, the only thing trumping your culinary experience is the view!

Sadly, I didn’t know about The Birdcage when I was pregnant, I would have downed all the mocktails. Luckily it also makes a great spot for a plain ol’ date day too!

Coffee and waffles at Akamai Coffee

Our favorite coffee shop in Wailea serves the most delicious berry waffles. Pair them with one of Akamai’s delicious espresso drinks made with locally grown and roasted espresso. Finish up with a swim at Wailea Beach, and you’ve got the perfect morning out!

Romantic sunset cruise

A sunset sail can have big impact on your Maui babymoon memory bank! Time on the ocean is made even more special if you’re visiting Maui during whale season (November – May).

As with that trip to Hana, make surey you’re keeping the ginger on hand to avoid getting sick on the water. This little bit of foresight will ensure your experience is beautiful and enjoyable!
