Your Maui Wedding Day at Makena
Beaches, Beaches, Beaches! We have lots of them here on Maui; small, rocky, soft sandy, protected coves, big waves, pretty much anything you want for your dramatic backdrop we have and most of them are on the south side of Maui in the beautiful, currently unspoiled area of Makena. Once home to thousands of native Hawaiians, the Makena area is rich in history and unparalleled in beauty.
Maluaka Beach Makena Maui
The rocky coastline rises out of the ocean and gives way to Dryland forest in an area that gets very little rain but boasts dozens of miles of beach, fishponds, tidal pools, snorkeling spots and of course, the occasional golf course and hotel. Fronting the Makena Beach and Golf Resort you'll find Maluaka Beach, a mid-sized gem with a gentle slope out in the water, a green grassy park and a beautiful palm tree lined avenue for walking with your best friend.

Beyond the Makena Beach and Golf Resort is an unspoiled, wild area of south Maui with a tight one lane road and the gem of Maui: Big Beach State Park. While we don't do weddings at Big Beach, the next perfect spot is Makena Cove, just south of Big Beach this small cozy cove offers some of Maui's most spectacular wedding scenery and has been featured in a number of national advertising campaigns. Whatever beach you choose, your South Maui beach wedding will be sure to include spectacular Maui Wedding Photography.

During the ceremony, your attention should be on the person you are marrying. Looking into each others eyes during the vows, lei ceremony and ring exchange not only creates incredible images but also bonds the two of you during what is a very intimate moment.
Our clients almost always ask us what is the perfect time of day for their Maui Wedding. There's no right or wrong answer to this question rather there's only your plans for the day and what kind of imagery you want to see from your Maui Wedding Photographer. The late afternoon, usually 1 hour before sunset, is our most popular time for our Maui Wedding celebrations. The light tends to soften, the temperatures cool a bit and the beach goers leave for their hotels and dinner. Of course, there's also that famous Maui sunset which is spectacular most of the time.
Even on Maui the sunset is not guaranteed but it's a good bet you'll get some shots like the ones above when you schedule your Maui wedding for the late afternoon. One of the most common scheduling conflicts is the Luau. Most luau's begin around 4 or 5 pm so our luau clients want a ceremony at 3. Not a great idea, especially in the summer when mid afternoon temperatures can reach 92 to 94. The sand is ho…
