Morning Blues vs Sunset Gold | Four Seasons Oahu Photographer

Hawaii provides breathtaking moments with both the rising and setting sun, and we love capturing both! We offer photography sessions during mid morning, as well as at sunset, and both offer two distinctly different, yet equally beautiful lighting options. To make the most of their babymoon at the Four Seasons Oahu, this beautiful couple decided to opt for both a vibrant morning shoot, as well as the evening glow. Check out the beautiful scenes we created together - which lighting style do you prefer?

First, we started with a morning session - a great time to capture the bright, bold blues in the sky and ocean. For the morning photoshoot, the couple brought out their bolder, more vibrant outfits to match the vibrant, sunny lighting.

We just love capturing intimate moments. The beautiful Pohaku point is usually only open for yoga or private dinners at the Four Seasons Oahu, but if it is not in use, we have exclusive permission to take our clients to capture photos here, so we headed there for a few quiet moments of sweet seclusion where they could enjoy a moment of privacy together.

For this photoshoot, Mrs. C decided to commission a custom haku from the floral artist Pamakane. The great thing about ordering a floral crown in advance is that she had the time to share her outfit choices with the florist in advance, and she was able to create headpieces with flowers that specifically went with her outfit colors.

 The lagoon offers calm water where you can enjoy a dip in the ocean without the crazy waves.

For sunset, we brought out different outfits with more subtle tones to blend in with the soft, golden light that evening offers.

The adjacent secret beach is a great place to capture views of the sunset against the ocean, palm trees, and the Waianae mountains.
