1. Honolua Bay

Honolua Bay is a beautiful lush jungle location. Overgrown with ferns, leaves, and trees as far as the eye can see. Due to the dense foliage cover, this location is perfect for photoshoots in the middle of the day. Consult with your photographer on the best time to book this location, as it is different from any other location offered on West Maui. Truly a unique location to capture your Maui portraits, think of Honolua Bay as West Maui’s ode to Hana.

2. Ironwoods Beach*

Ironwoods Beach is the perfect spot for either a morning or sunset session. This location offers a variety of backdrops in one convenient destination. Featuring a vast sandy beach, views of Molokai, and lava rock cliffs flanking both ends of the beach.
