Take a look below at some of our favorite locations for photos in Maui.

Southside Locations (Kihei / Wailea)
White Rock (Palauea)
You won’t find many tourists on White Rock Beach, also known as Palaeua Beach. You will find a beautiful seascape and a long, crescent-shaped stretch of sand. Located on Makena Rd., this lesser-known gem of a beach has everything a Maui photographer needs, to capture stunning images, including fine sand, towering palm trees, lava rock formations, and relatively few people. A recessed bay provides ample protection from the wind, making it easy for Hawaii portrait photographers to carry out pleasant shoots. Hands down, my favorite beach for mornings on the Southside.
Known for its long and wide stretch of sand, Maluaka beach in Turtle Town offers a stunning vista for photographers in Maui. Depending on the light, the sand can appear golden or white. There are also a few grassy areas that help break up the landscape and offer visual interest. With plenty of amenities and a gorgeous view, Maluaka Beach is my favorite beach for sunsets on the Southside.
Westside Locations (Lahaina/ Ka’anapali/ Kapalua)
DT Flemings (Honokahua)
My favorite location for longer family sessions during the morning or sunset hours, DT Flemings Beach offers a fun, relaxing experience for both kids and grown-ups. Packed with plenty of facilities and a great view, it’s an ideal spot for Maui photography. Crowds flock here on weekends, but it tends to remain quiet the rest of the week. Lined by rows of ironwoods, the shoreline offers plenty of shade for sun-weary visitors, not to mention dappled light for photographers in Maui, Hawaii. Just beware of the winds, which have a tendency to whip through the area.
Ironwoods (Oneloa)
This remote beach is my favorite for sunsets and couples. Few people venture here, which gives the area a quiet, romantic feel and makes it a coveted location among wedding photographers in Maui. Stunning, 20-foot lava rocks jut out of the shoreline at one end, providing a natural backdrop for beautiful shots. Although the beach can get windy, the spectacular landscape and intimate atmosphere make up for any inconvenience. I’ve been a Maui engagement photographer for years, yet I’ve never stopped gathering inspiration from this magnificent landscape.
One of Maui’s most popular beaches, Kapalua features a wide stretch of golden sand that’s perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and relaxing. With a beautiful view of Molokai Island and plenty of whale sightings, Kapalua is also a great spot for Maui beach photography. Arrive in the morning, and you can beat the crowds while catching the pre-afternoon light. That makes this beach my favorite for mini-sessions in the mornings. Kapalua is also perfect for baby-friendly photo shoots with a Maui family photographer.
