If you have a creative idea or a Pinterest board full of amazing ideas, please share! We have lots of great ideas, but we love hearing about yours too!
We try to photograph your day in a fun and relaxing way that captures the joy and excitement of your wedding day. We use a wide selection of professional lenses to keep your photos looking fresh and unique. Our photographers know when to stand back and let the moment unfold. However, we also know that not everyone feels like a supermodel in front of a camera so we know how and when to give direction if needed. Our goal is to make you look your best while feeling your best.
At Pink Pineapple we try to take the guesswork out of finding a wedding location. We went ahead and selected some of our favorite locations below. Please contact us to samples of full galleries and more beach/location ideas.
WHICH IS BETTER? A SUNSET WEDDING, MORNING WEDDING OR A MIDDAY WEDDING?
Both sunset and mornings provide the most ideal lighting for weddings. Mornings typically give you blue skies and blue water and normally fewer people on the beach. A sunset wedding gives you golden light and hopefully a big sunset. We don’t normally recommend having ceremonies during high noon. Although it is possible, the light between the hours of 11am and 3pm can be harsh and is not the most flattering.
CAN WE HAVE CHAIRS OR ARCHES ON THE BEACH FOR OUR WEDDING?
Unfortunately Hawaii State Law does not allow chairs, arbors, or any other structures besides a small cake table and loose flowers on public beaches. We recommend choosing from one of our preferred private wedding venues for weddings with more guests and décor.
WHAT SIZE WEDDING DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR A BEACH WEDDING?
Hawaii Parks and Recreation permit up to 30 people for a public beach wedding. If you are looking to have more guests then we recommend choosing from one of our preferred private wedding venues. Capacity varies depending on venue.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
Tropical weather is unpredictable, but here on the Big Island we are lucky to have great weather most of the time. In the case that there is rain we do our best to still make your day as enjoyable as possible. After all, it’s good luck!
CAN WE VENTURE TO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS FOR PHOTOS?
Definitely! We can travel to as many photo locations as you want as long as it is within the contracted photography time. Please note that travel time from one location to the next does cut into the photography time.
WHAT IS REQUIRED TO RESERVE OUR DATE?
A signed contract with a 50% reservation fee.
HOW DO WE GET OUR HAWAII MARRIAGE LICENSE?
You can start the process online, but you MUST personally appear before a licensing agent and show proper ID to get your marriage license. For more information please visit http://health.hawaii.gov/vitalrecords/marriage-licenses/.
Of course, if you have any additional questions we will be happy to give you more guidance in this area.
DO YOU OFFER OTHER SERVICES NOT INCLUDED IN YOUR WEDDING PACKAGES?
Yes, we do. We have developed trusted relationships with the most reputable vendors on the Big Island. We will be happy to coordinate a wide variety of services that you may be interested in using on your wedding day.
