Ironwoods Beach is one of my favorite places to shoot. It’s a quarter mile long, covered in light colored sand, and usually uncrowded probably partly due to the fact that it doesn’t look like an obvious beach from the parking lot. A boardwalk surrounded by greenery runs above the beach as part of the Kapalua Coastal Trail. One of the best features is the lava rock cliffs overlooking the Pacific. With the wind creating movement and the waves providing contrast to the dark rocks, the cliffs become an awe-inspiring backdrop for those in love.
This next wedding was entirely planned around getting epic shots on the lava rock cliffs at Ironwoods Beach. Dana was looking for wedding inspiration on Pinterest and stumbled upon a picture of Ivana and Jan. She instantly fell in love with the place and decided she needed to have that picture for her own wedding! This set all the wheels in motion for a Maui wedding and led to them choosing me as the photographer to capture the magic. I worked closely with the bride to nail her style and the feeling of the day. We got the cliff shot that Dana fell in love with. We got in the car and drove down the road to finish the amazing day with beautiful sunset glare at Merriman's Kapalua where they were having dinner to celebrate their ever after!
