Pa’ako Beach, also known as the ‘Wedding Beach’ and ‘Secret Cove’ or Makena Cove at Makena the south end of Maui, passed Wailea. Pa’ako Beach is without a doubt the most popular location in all of Maui when it comes to beach weddings. Because it is not marked with a sign, it still remains relatively private and parking can often be difficult. It’s scenic beauty is breath-taking and it is quite possibly the most photogenic beach in the entire Hawaiian Islands. Once you find this spot, you will return time and again to enjoy the unsurpassed beauty you find here. Such a beautiful place, it is good to come and visit in the morning for the light over the water is magical. Aqua, turquise, deep blue with white waves crashing on the shore. Once you have been here, you will never forget this perfect little cove that has been nicknamed the “Wedding Beach.”. It is simply sublime…

Cameras and photography captured my interest years ago as a child with my little Brownie. The cameras have changed over the years until the Digital age when I got really serious about photography. Not only has my work improved, but it has opened many doors to meeting wonderful people along the way. New friendships and learning new skills… I am hopeful that some of my best work is yet to come.
