Sunset Versus Morning photo shoot


When should you get your Maui portraits taken?

This is an important question to ask.  Here are a few pros and cons for day vs sunset photo shoots.


  • When the sun is high, you can get that amazing turquoise ocean water in the background.
  • Any greenery around you (trees, bushes, plants, etc…) will pop more in the photos.
  • You’ll have a hard time with squinting due to brightness.


  • Off camera lighting can make you look great while still capturing the beauty of the sunset.
  • You have your day free earlier to do things.  Maui is great during the day for beach time.
  • Sunset doesn’t last very long, so you need to be on time and work quickly.
  • Somtimes sunset isn’t as spectacular 1 night to the next.  You roll the dice.

Hopefully these tips help you decide on a time for your portrait shoot on Maui.
