Kaua'i is always a good idea.

As a Hawaii wedding photographer, I can attest that these magical islands are a perfect place to begin your married life, but let's talk about a Kaua'i elopement for a minute. Lush with rainforests, golden beaches, emerald hills and crystal blue waters, Kaua'i offers an idyllic, peaceful setting for elopements and weddings.

Through the years as a Kaua'i wedding and elopement photographer, I have discovered many wonderful spots for my couples. I have been exploring the Hawaiian islands for more than 20 years and know them intimately. While each island has its own special charm, I love showing my couples the north shore of Kaua'i more than any other spot.

For instance, let's talk about the wonder of a Hanalei Bay elopement. Located on Kaua'i's north shore, this expansive bay offers plenty of scenic locations for an elopement or intimate wedding, including the historic Hanalei Pier. While it's tough to select "the best location" in Hawaii, I admit this is perhaps my favorite spot to take couples for an adventure elopement. It's absolutely magical.

A Po'ipu elopement is another option to consider. Po'ipu Beach consistently ranks at the top of the list of best beaches in the United States and with good reason. White sand beaches, palm trees and the music of waves crashing on the shore are a perfect backdrop for tying the knot.

Waimea Canyon elopements are another popular choice, providing seemingly endless mountain and canyon views and perhaps a few waterfalls. Princeville elopements at Pu'u Poa Beach are yet another enticing option, a quiet stretch of beach dotted with volcanic rock and affording mountain views. Princeville elopements are especially suitable for a romantic sunset elopement.

While a Kaua'i elopement can be an amazing experience, as a seasoned Hawaiian wedding photographer, I can find picture-perfect spots for your Maui elopement or Oahu elopement. I love taking my clients on hikes where they can discover big sweeping vistas and grand landscapes, perfect spots for extraordinary wedding photography. No matter which of these magical islands you select for your ceremony, I will create a custom experience for you that truly captures your spirit as a couple.
