Having a Big Island Wedding during sunset provides a beautiful backdrop for your photos. It also provides an opportunity to get some great silhouette shots!
Silhouettes convey emotion, romance, and mood in your Hawaii wedding photos and often stand out in an album because of the combination of their simplicity but also the story that they reveal. The contrast of the midnight figures against the colorful backdrop creates striking images that are a timeless keepsake of one of the most memorable milestones in one’s life.
Each of these photos showcases the beauty and diversity of Hawaii’s sunsets and tells a story about the unique subjects featured. From warm golden oranges to cool lavender blues, the hues of any given sunset vary with the Island’s changing moods. The wind, cloud placement, precipitation, location, “vog” level, and timing all play their part in painting the evening sky. Additionally, in just a matter of moments, the colors can change and change again giving each couple an array of different sunset and silhouette photos to document their wedding.
Marking the transition to a couple’s new life as married partners, every sunset on the Big Island is a reminder of the many forms, expressions, and paths to love. In the over 1,000 weddings we have photographed on Hawaii, no two sunsets or two couples have been the same.
