Sunrise Maui Engagement Photographer

I always kick myself when I post that I’m a sunrise Maui engagement photographer. Why? Because getting up early is the worst. I, without exception, dread it the night before and toss and turn all night in fear that I’m going to miss my alarm.

“WHY would I schedule something so damn early. I really need to remember this for next time.”

But then we get there. Bright and early, before the sun comes up. The beach is quiet, we have it all to ourselves. There are more turtles than people. And the colors start to emerge from the horizon. And then I remember why I love sunrise so much. And Maui’s north shore has the best sunrise, hands down.

I’m photographing Jayann and Eric’s wedding in October and, especially after meeting up last week, I feel more excited than ever. They have amazing chemistry keep each other laughing, and are willing to climb rocks, run through the surf, and basically do what I tell them to! (read: they trust me!)

Maui Sunrise Engagement Photos

What I love about sunrise engagement photography is perfectly exemplified in these images. I feel like because we have more time to play with the light that the images become more dynamic and interesting. It also helps when the outfits are 100% on point (thanks Jayann and Eric!). We chased the light, played with shadows and textures, and really spent the time getting to know one another (which is important because I’ll be photographing their wedding!).

I had two of favorite moments of our morning together. The first was when a sneaky wave came up and sent Jayann and Eric running up the shore! I was far away when I took the shot but I could still hear them laughing! I always say that it’s not a Maui engagement session unless you get a little bit wet!

The second was seeing the largest turtle ever on the beach. Guys. This thing must have been at least 50 years old! Of course, we kept our distance (the rule is 10 feet) but we were able to incorporate him/her into some of our photos! I love it when wildlife becomes part of the narrative during engagement sessions!
