So, your partner has finally popped the big question, and you're all about making this engagement session something genuinely unforgettable, right? Well, let me clue you in on a little secret – sunset beach engagement photos are where it's at! Picture you, your love, and the stunning Hawaiian backdrop painted in warm, golden hues. No need to worry about nailing it perfectly on your own – I've got a bunch of tips to ensure your engagement photo shoot is nothing short of amazing!
MY FAVORITE TIPS FOR YOUR SUNSET BEACH ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
First, let’s go over some of the most common questions that I get asked by my clients:
What do we wear?
Rock whatever gives you that confidence boost! My go-to suggestion - A flowy dress for the gals and a spiffy yet relaxed outfit (think nice shirt and pants) for the guys. I'm more into pants than shorts, but the photo canvas is all yours, so roll with what feels right. No pressure to coordinate outfits like a runway show, but I'm all about dialing down the colors and patterns to keep the spotlight firmly on you both! For inspiration, check out my Instagram for glimpses of past engagement sessions.
Do you help us find a location?
I’m stoked to play tour guide and dish out some prime location suggestions for your session. With plenty of engagement shoots under my belt, I've got a variety of options to match your vibes. Sneak a peek at my blog on Engagement Photo Locations in Maui for a jumpstart on ideas!
Do we need permits?
Yep, I take care of it all!
SOME ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR YOUR BEACH ENGAGEMENT SESSION
While I'll be orchestrating things behind the lens, remember, my goal is to capture your genuine selves. Save those camera glances and smooches for when I cue you – no need for an all-out kissing marathon.
When it comes to the best lighting, early mornings or those twilight hours before sunset are where the magic happens. This is when those dreamy, website-worthy shots come to life, so make the most of it.
For those up for an adventure session (a fun option), pack an outfit change, stay hydrated, and tote some snacks. We'll be hopping around a few spots to create some epic memories.
Now, wind – it's a character on Maui's beaches. Embrace it, sway with it, let it be part of your story. Ladies, if the forecast calls for wind, consider rocking a chic updo to keep those locks in check.
Do you want to kick it up a notch? How about a dip in the ocean to cap off your session? Those moments are pure gold, with the sun's golden hour glow dancing on the water's surface, creating some seriously incredible images.
