Maui Photographer Tip-When is the Best Time for Photography?

October 16, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Here's a tip this week from your friendly Maui Photographer, Jen. :)  When clients book me they regularly ask,
"What's the best time for our Maui Photography?".  When you think about beautiful Maui Photographs what is one of the most important factors?  Its the lighting.  The sun has everything to do with making a picture look either gorgeous or harsh.  The higher the sun is the more harsh the lighting will be.  For example, the direction the sun is at noon puts harsh light on subjects.  If those subjects are a Bride & Groom at their dream Maui Wedding, noon is the worst time.  We are talking harsh shadows on their faces and bodies.  The point-the time you schedule your Photography is very important.  The two best times for your Maui Wedding or Portrait Photography are early in the morning and before sunset. They both offer beautiful lighting. You should know the difference between the two before you decide on a time.  I can photograph Weddings or Portraits at either time.  For families with young children, they always do best with mornings.

Early morning around 8am: The water is bright blue. See an example here.  A morning session offers a gorgeous turquoise ocean and a white sandy beach. Also, the beaches have less people.  Usually the beach is empty in the early morning.

1 Hour before sunset: The lighting has a nice soft tone. It can get windy at times.  The colors vary at sunset, it can be full of color or just a light golden shade.  Below is an example of a session at sunset.  
If you're looking for a Maui Photographer, I'd love to hear from you. :)
