Maui Jungle Elopement and our sacred Honolua Bay
Honolua Bay is located on the upper west side of Maui. Honolua is sacred to us. It is not only one of the best waves in the world but it is also arguably one of the most beautiful places you've ever been to.
If you're considering an elopement or couples shoot, Honolua Jungle is always on top of the list of places to be. Unfortunately an over abundant amount of visitors and lack of respect for the 'aina (land) has left a bad mark for people wanting to shoot there.
There's room for everyone to enjoy these beautiful areas, we just have to make sure that we take care, or malama these places so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy them for generations to come.
I had the privilege of photographing David and Cass' elopement here a while back and
we had such a great time. I was able to share a little history of this place as well as capture the most important day of their lives. If we can all just show a little respect for the places we travel to, then just maybe, they'll be there for others to enjoy after we're all gone from this world.
