Each month we shoot dozens of couples who have come to the Andaz for a romantic getaway, surprise proposal, weddings, honeymoons, baby moons, birthdays, anniversaries, you name it.

Here are a few tips we recommend when thinking about posed, candid, playful, intimate, and romantic shots.

  • Variety - Interacting Versus Posing:

Your photographer will take a variety of shots and will guide you on how to pose and what to do in front of the camera. Sometimes we get stuck in thinking that we must look directly at the camera and smile. To capture a wide variety of poses your photographer will give you suggestions on how to interact with each other, you can try to whisper something funny in your partners ear, walk along the beach looking out to the water, a kiss on the forehead or cheek (don't forget to close your eyes!), or a playful spin, all add natural moments and memories to your shoot. Try as many of these as you'd like and don't be afraid to make suggestions that will bring out the unique qualities of your special bond.

  • Candid Shots - Forget the Camera:

Some of our favorite shots of couples happen when they forget the camera and simply laughing with each other in between shots. Candid shots are more natural and tend to have a look and feel that is uniquely you. Feel free to let your photographer know if you prefer candids. we can always stand a few feet away while you take the lead and snap away to get the perfect shot.

  • Find some Inspiration - Mood Boards:

Prior to your shoot have a look at Pinterest where there is a plenty of images to inspire. Try searching boards that relate to couple photo sessions / portraits / photo shoots / photography / etc and feel free to pin your favorite shots to your own mood board that you can show your photographer on your smartphone the day of your shoot. This will help your photographer understand your personal taste and the style of photos you love.

  • As Always Relax and Have Fun! :

Enjoying your Experience Session in the beautiful island paradise of Maui is the most important part. We love making your trip and occasion even more special with the memories we capture.

Honeymooning in Maui || Couples photography

The romantic and serene ambiance of the Andaz at Wailea Resort is simply the perfect location for couples celebrating their honeymoon in Maui.

Nathalie and Jon came to us all the way from Australia to enjoy this special time together just days after their wedding in Sydney. Being used to posing for photographers by this point (after enduring both engagement and wedding photography) the couple was able to relax on the beach and surrounding property during their Experience Photography Session.

Both agreed that the islands breathtaking natural beauty along with the modern elegance of the resort were excellent choices and exceeded their expectations. With the many dramatic backdrops, it is clear why the Andaz Wailea is a top sought out location for Maui couples photography. You can see more examples of beautiful portraits taken at the Andaz here.

We look forward to seeing them return to Maui's beautiful beaches for future anniversaries and to capture more special memories of their love.
