Hawaiian Hilton Village Family Photography

LOL! Half this video is outtakes and bloopers!

The Hawaiian Hilton Village is a very popular Waikiki resort, as well as being the only Waikiki beach location where it is legal for photographers to do sessions. It has easy wheelchair access, lots of different backgrounds in all directions, multiple shooting spots, direct sunset views, view of Diamond Head and Waikiki...and thousands of people. 

I confess, I usually try to steer people away from having a family photo session at the Hawaiian Hilton Village, as I personally much prefer more natural locations with few people around. However, I do realize that not everyone has rented a car or can get around easily with the young kids or elderly parents in tow. So if you are staying at the Hawaiian Hilton Village (or the Hale Koa Resort next door), you can still have a great family photography session and get lots of beautiful images, it just takes a bit more creativity and you'll have to be okay with some buildings and people in your backgrounds. That said, it's surprising how often I can find an angle that minimizes people or buildings.

If you’re looking for an affordable family photographer in Waikiki Oahu, these packages offer tremendous value.

“The Hawaiian Hilton Village is best for sunset or early morning sessions only.”

For family vacation photos on the beach at the Hawaiian Hilton Village in Waikiki, I recommend morning (8 - 10am) or sunset sessions because that is when there are the fewest people around. There are pros and cons to this location:

Pros

  • Multiple backgrounds

  • Easy wheel chair access to beach

  • Great Waikiki vibe/look

  • Views of Diamond Head/Waikiki

Cons

  • Lots of people around

  • Not pure natural beauty of Hawaii

  • Cars, telephone poles, buildings, etc

  • Few wide angle shot opportunities
