The reason why there are a number of beautiful hotels in Kaanapali is because it has a very impressive beach that stretches for miles along the coast. Unfortunately professional photography is not allowed there, but there are many beautiful beaches next to it that we normally photograph you on and our clients love the fact that these gorgeous beaches we choose are less crowded and more picturesque. Family photography and weddings along with couples photography is mostly photographed in Kapalua Bay or Napili, also Ironwoods beach only ten minutes from Kaanapali. If you are staying in Kaanapali and you are looking for a different place to take your family pictures, then we would suggest a beautiful drive along the coast to the south side of Maui, called Wailea or Makena. These areas for photography are a perfect backdrop for your photography memories and only takes 45 minutes from Kaanapali with good traffic.
