We are open to other off the beaten path locations provided it is legal to hold a wedding and commercial photography. Let’s chat!!!
Includes a 15 minute hike down the valley!
Stunning valley views and black sand beach. Accessible via 4WD only. Couples will either need to read a Jeep or we can arrange travel service for an extra charge.
Waipio valley road is one of the steepest in the world so good driving experience in similar terrain is suggested and if you do not feel comfortable driving it, we can arrange a ride for you! Read more about it here: https://www.dangerousroads.org/north-america/usa/394-waipio-road-usa.html
Located in North Kona and accessible via SUV drive over unpaved road and short hike to the beach from the parking lot! The bay is HUGE and will require lots of walking to really take advantage of all the picturesque corners!
Both locations below will require and extra $200 for park permit and entrance fees.
Also called the Pu`uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historucal Park located south of Captain Cook. Our photographers have not worked on a elopement here. But you can learn more about the park at this link: https://www.nps.gov/puho/index.htm

Wedding ceremonies can be held any where in the park property with a permit. For this location expect forest areas, crater views, steam vents, lava fields as well as ocean cliffs which is found on the south most end of the park (and the island). To cover all areas of the park for photos, you might want to add an extra hour of photography as the park is huge! Or we can narrow down your desired landscaped and decide on precise location(s) this way.
