Oahu Photoshoot Locations

Waimanalo Beach

This is my main beach that I shoot at, and my favorite. There are lots of options for backdrops- mountains on one side, a palm tree grove, and the most picturesque turquoise ocean. There's also a lot of shade for those hot sunny days!

This is the most accessible for those that don't want to walk far, however, it does not have restroom facilities.

The sun will rise right over the ocean, with colors that light up the sky!

Think sunshine, blue skies & turquoise water!

The sun does not set over the water, but the sky fills with pretty pastels. Sometimes a moonrise too!

Kualoa Beach

This beach has the best mountain views! Also lots of trees, a lagoon that's great for littles, and it has restrooms.

The best views of the Ko'olau Mountains!

Makai Pier
The pier is beautiful on its own; there's also a pretty surrounding beach with black lava rock and palms too!

A great alternative to the beach, this spot is full of sun flares and golden vibes. No restrooms.

This light is best at this spot an hour before sunset

Makapu'u Beach
This is a black lava rock beach that is known for it's huge waves and vibrant blue water! There are restrooms :)
This beach can get really hot on a sunny day; there's not much shade, so a 9am morning session is best suited to those who can tolerate a lot of sun.

If you don't mind the early wake up call... come experience the magic
