Fun North Shore Engagement Session in Maui Hawaii


Maureen and Naz were such a sweet and fun couple! They wanted to do something a bit different for their Maui engagement session (which I was all for!) so we started the day in the small town of Paia. Located on the north shore of Maui, Paia is a cute little surf town lined with local shops and restaurants.


To beat the crowds, we got an early start with a sunrise session. We found some really adorable spots along the town’s main area, including a fun sea mural and the cutest surfboard-lined fence. After we took a few photos in Paia we ventured over to one of my favorite nearby cliffside locations near Hookipa.


One of the things I love about Hawaii sunrise sessions is the solitude you get to experience at a place when there’s nobody around but you. We had the cliffside all to ourselves and it was a perfect morning. Clear skies, barely any wind, and you could see the West Maui Mountains in the distance. It was one of those moments where you were just like “wow, this is incredible.” I had so much fun spending the early morning with these two and am so grateful I got to capture these amazing memories for them in Maui.


Best engagement session locations in North Shore Maui

On Maui’s North Shore, the coastline is rugged and untouched complete with epic views and quaint towns.



The small town of Paia is located right along Maui’s North Shore. With one main street running through its center, here you’ll find cute shops, delicious restaurants, and a laid-back, carefree vibe. If you’re looking for a non-beach location, Paia is the perfect place.


Baldwin Beach

Baldwin Beach is a popular beach with long stretches of white sands and clear blue water. Although it can get pretty busy on weekends, you can usually find a stretch of beach for yourself. In the early morning, the beach has a mystical feel, and in the evening, the most incredible sunsets with gorgeous views of the West Maui mountains.


Twin Falls

Located on the Road to Hana, Twin Falls is full of jungle vibes. An easy 1 mile round trip hike through a jungle forest brings you to a series of small waterfalls and swimming holes. It is private property so permission and a small fee is required.


Hana Highway (secret spots!)

The Road to Hana along Maui’s north shore is filled with spectacular engagement photo locations. I have several secret spots that I only share with my couples! Contact me if you’re thinking of an engagement session or elopement in North Shore Maui.
