Misty Engagement Session in Makawao Forest on Maui | Alec + Zoe

by | Nov 6, 2018 | Engagement

Misty Forest Days

This Makawao Forest engagement session really kind of blew my mind! There’s something to be said for a misty day in the forest. It just gives this hauntingly beautiful vibe to wander through the trees while fog settles into every nook. It makes you feel like you’re basking in the beauty of a fall day, even if it’s 85 degrees and humid because you’re actually in Maui. And while this may look like the forests of Northern California, I swear that it is in fact on the Hawaiian island.

I met with Alec + Zoe in a quaint little town just outside the forest where we chatted for a bit before heading out into the clouds. We so enjoyed romping through the trees, exploring a few paths, and ogling the strangely shaped spiral tree we came across. Keep scrolling to see!
