Maui surprise proposals at sunrise

We love the ease of sunrise on Maui: pastel tones, empty beaches, and typically still conditions before the afternoon tradewinds pick up. You’ll see the light at this time of day is consistently soft and beautiful. The pastel pretties lend themselves perfectly to your proposal plans.

For sunrise proposals, we recommend letting your loved one know a shoot is on so they can prepare to be in front of the camera. Sunrise surprise photoshoots are a bit tricky.

Proposing at sunset in Wailea

Sunset is also an amazing time to propose to your loved one on Maui! This time of day is best for proposals that will be a complete surprise. Because the beaches are always busy around sunset in Wailea, this option is best for those who aren’t too camera-shy.
