This wedding started a Waimanalo Beach followed by our Photo Tour to Makapuu Pt.. Click on photo to see more of this coverage.
Our Photo Tour allows couple to have more variety in their photos and we're lucky enough to have Makapuu Pt. available to offer this extra service.
Our top photographer was the first to use this spot for couples 30+ years ago and has photographed weddings throughout the State of Hawaii on every island and he says, you will not find more desirable scenic elements, blue ocean, or easy access.
This is performed immediately before or after your ceremony photo session of scenic landscape poses. It usually takes about about 15-20 minutes.
For the bluest ocean and variety of blues, 10 am to 2 pm, when the sunlight is reflecting of the ocean floor, is the best. With that said, it's still nice any other time of the day. Also, it can sometimes be windy so, you'll need to consider that for hair and attire.
We suggest either a morning ceremony at Waimanalo, Waialae/Kahala, or Magic Island with the Photo Tour to immediately follow OR starting with the Photo Tour with a mid-day to sunset ceremony to immediately follow at either Magic Island or Portlock Beach. We can do a split-time coverage but, this is more costly.
We only allow the couple to access the area for the session but, there is a railed formal lookout area your guests.
The cost includes our top photographer, the session fee, and vendor travel time. Extra photos for your package are not included. At no extra charge our top photographer will also photograph your ceremony.
As the day progresses towards the afternoon and the sunlight hits at a more oblique angle, the ocean gets darker (photos below) and to a dark blue/black late in the day.
The wedding below started with a Photo Tour to Makapuu Pt. and ended with a sunset ceremony at Portlock Beach.
