My favorite thing about capturing Hawaii engagement photos at sunrise is that the beaches are almost always empty! We get the whole beach to ourselves! This privacy is appreciated by some couples who aren’t comfortable with getting their photos taken in public. On certain beaches, our only audiences are honus, spinner dolphins, and the rare humpback whales breaching in the background. Check out the little guy who showed up to this session below!
The sunrise right is a little different from the sunset because the progression is obviously the complete opposite. The session starts off with those soft cotton candy-colored skies. It then ends with that bright sunshine perfect for those hazy golden photos, the morning’s golden hour. Sunrises are also perfect for couples coming with a huge time difference!
I am not at all a morning person. However, I am a golden light chaser first. So, I will very gladly wake up sometimes at insane hours of the night just to catch sunsets! I may grumble and hit that snooze button a couple of times but in the end it is always worth it!
On an early morning, I met up with Grace and David for their sunrise session at Kukio beach. We all ended up making our way to Kikaua and made an adventure out of it! Mahalo, Grace and David!
