A Guide to Sunset Sessions

One of our most popular times to schedule a couple's portrait session is at sunset. There is no denying that there is something very romantic about two people in love getting their picture taken against a beautiful Hawaiian sunset.

Recently, we had a sunset session at Papailoa Beach on the North Shore with two Alaska love birds -  Cassie and Keith.

I thought their session would be perfect to explain how a sunset session with Hawaiianpix typically works.

When you call us and request a sunset session, Andy keeps two things in mind - location and time. Some locations on the island (ie. the east side of Oahu) do not work for that "sunset glow and reflection" that most couples desire in their photographs. Lately, our most popular locations for couple sunset portraits has been Papailoa Beach on the North Shore and Ala Moana Beach Park on Hawaii's south shore.

Timing is crucial. Thankfully, in our booking system we have a sunset set calendar. Andy will look at the day requested, and she will schedule your session to start one hour before the recorded sunset time.

We do this so you get regular sunlight in the beginning of your session......

About half way into your session, you start to get a golden glow in your photos from the setting sun...

Finally, the setting sun's "glow" turns into a full on sunset. Typically by this time the couple is feeling a little bit more comfortable in front of the camera, and you can really see the passion between them!

If you are interested in scheduling a romantic session against a beautiful Hawaiian sunset, call Andy at 808-387-0869 (Tuesday-Friday, 9am - 1pm)

Zumba Fundraiser for a Hawaii Photographer

Hawaiianpix Photography is trying to spread the word about a Zumba fundraiser taking place on January 22, 2012 to raise money for the medical bills acquired by Hawaii photographer friend, Marcia Campbell. Marcia was seriously injured during a recent hit-and-run bicycle accident. It is a true tragedy that this had to happen to such a talented photographer. We hope that you read the story below from her personal blog, and become inspired to help out in any way possible.  More information can be found at


On December 9, Marcia had a bicycle accident while biking to her dance class in Kaimuki as usual. When she came to her senses she was lying down on the sidewalk and her bike was leaning against the wall. Marcia still does not remember what happened, but being the tough Marcia that she is she called her good friend, who was on speed dial, to come and get her. When Sofia arrived and saw the state in which Marcia was in she called the ambulance right away. Marcia was taken to Queens Hospital Emergency. She was found with multiple fractures, to face, head, back, and hands and had to be hospitalized for an extent of time. After about 6 days she went through surgery to repair the facial fractures. Due to the nature of the surgery she will be on a liquid diet for 6 weeks. At the time of the accident Marcia was not covered by health insurance. You can just imagine the impact on her physical and financial life.

Today Marcia is at home recovering from her injuries, even though, her recovery has been outstanding, she will be unable to work for a couple of months.
Since the accident happened many friends came together to help Marcia while she was at the hospital. They gave their time and took shifts in order to help taking care of her. They changed their daily routine in order to ensure Marcia’s wellbeing! They are still helping in many ways. It is a flow of friends who come every day to assist her and we are very thankful to All of you: Angels!

Marcia, as most of you know, is an exceptional professional photographer specialized in weddings and portraits. She has several booked weddings, to photograph, but unfortunately some were cancelled.
