Professional wedding photography at Magic Island in Honolulu is a must to capture the incredible beauty Magic Island offers. Located very close to Waikiki and right next to Ala Moana Beach on the island of Oahu. Magic Island offers unobstructed views of Diamond Head, small boat harbor, Waikiki, Ala Moana, and Kaka’ako skylines, calm water lagoon with turquoise water, amazing views of sunsets, a huge green park with large trees, fireworks on Fridays, and unobstructed beach views of sunsets into the ocean.
No wonder, Magic Island is one of the most popular destinations for outdoor Weddings in Hawaii. Most of these weddings are small destination weddings and some are medium to large weddings. Medium to large size wedding require a well planned set up, so the wedding guests could comfortably sit and the wedding couple could be nicely framed inside of a beautiful beach style wedding canopy.
This medium-sized Wedding was carefully planned towards later in the afternoon, so that the ceremony finishes just in time for sunset and that it’s not so early in the afternoon that it’s too hot for most people. This Magic Island Wedding photoshoot was about 2.5 hours total. So we were able to capture the bride’s arrival, take lots of pre-wedding photos of the couple, their friends and family, details of decorations, the Wedding ceremony, after-the-wedding group shots, candid photos, the newlyweds at sunset AND evening style photos too!
It was lots of fun and the lucky couple ended up with a super nice variety of awesome wedding photos shot by Pasha of Best Hawaii Photos.

It offers a very nice and convenient indoor wedding reception site Ko’olau Ballrooms with full catering, an indoor waterfall, as well as a very scenic wedding ceremony site right outside. Ko’olau Golf Course is rated one of the best 100 golf courses in the world.
Incredible views of the Ko’olau mountains, lots of greenery with large trees, tropical plants, and ponds create lots of opportunities for stunning Wedding Photography.
Since Ko’olau Gardens is located on the rainy side of Oahu, it’s advisable to plan the wedding at a dry and sunny time. Of course, Hawaiian weather can be unpredictable and forecasts are often wrong. But, this lucky wedding couple got lucky with the weather, since it rained the day before, but cleared up just in time for their wonderful wedding.
This awesome wedding was organized and planned with the help of Ko’olau Gardens and I Want to Marry You Weddings with Reverend Watters Glover. Photography by Pasha of Best Hawaii Photos.

When all the elements come together, the lucky couple ends up with unforgettable memories and awesome engagement photos to last a lifetime!
Without a doubt having sunset wedding photos is highly desirable, especially if you’re in Hawaii and the sun sets into the ocean. In Waikiki this event is seasonal, since the summer sun sets behind the Waianae mountains, but in the winter it sets into the ocean. It also take special photography know-how to capture that golden sunset in it’s glory, as well as it’s wonderful variations before and after the sun down.
