      Hi Chris,

      Are you looking for hot spots for Oahu as well? Here are a few that comes to mind:

      Lanai Lookout
      Manana or Rabbit Island Lookout
      Hoomaluhia Botanical GArdens
      Kualoa Ranch
      Molii Gardens

      We are having a legal wedding and photoshoot in Oahu in August. I would also appreciate any input from you on Hot Spots for Photography in Oahu.

              Thanks for the suggestions! I am the maid of honor for my best friends wedding in Kona in January, so this will be a big help to the photographer. I am also a photographer and will be doing a couples session while there so it's SUPER helpful since I have never been here. I will have to google those spots, but if anyone else can shed some light on spots, please do! Thanks all!
