Choosing sunrise to have your engagement session on Oahu is really the best time. Just before the sun rises, it creates a beautiful glowy light. The east side of Oahu is also one of my favorite places to photograph at sunrise. Sunrise you say? Well YES! The light is so pretty about 15 minutes before and then for about another 45 minutes to an hour before the hot Hawaiian sun makes it too bright. I get asked a lot about the best time of day, well here you have it, sun rise! Time to greet the day!
