Family Photography - Disney Aulani Resort Ko Olina

Aulani Family Beach & Sunset Portrait Photography

The Disney Aulani in Ko Olina is a beautiful family resort in Oahu Hawaii nestled among palm trees with the beautiful family friendly man-made lagoons to play and explore. The Disney Aulani Resort, along with all the other resorts in the private Ko Olina community jealously guard access to their property as they want guests to only use their photographers and services. Therefore, photographers like myself are not allowed to use the beach, lagoon or anywhere else in the resort. The good news, is that there is a far better, little known location for family beach photography less than two blocks away called Secret Cove that is a public beach, not private. All the images you’ll see on this page are from Secret Cove or the public shoreline (as well as some on the grassy verges we sneak in!)

We have three basic Aulani Disney family beach packages that vary from 60 minutes to 120 minutes for large families or clients wanting the most creative, gorgeous portraits Hawaii nature has to offer. Families large or small are welcome, from the grandparents to the youngest kids and children.

Honestly, photographers don’t come better than Bodhi, PERIOD. My family loves destination photography. We have handpicked photographers in London, Rome, Paris, Maui, and Honolulu. There were some really bad experiences, some fairly good ones and then there is EXTRAORDINARY BODHI. He is pleasant, hardworking (puts in a lot of effort to try out different settings and techniques throughout the session), amazing with young/difficult children and the results are SO good. He turns the photos around in one tenth of the time compared to other photographers bc his techniques are so good that very little post editing is required.

I recommend him to all my friends and family and they always come back thanking me profusely for the pleasant experiences and breathtaking images that Bodhi gave them. - Jennifer L.

Creative & Gorgeous Disney Aulani Family Beach & Sunset Photography

Your family photo session doesn’t have to be limited to only at the Disney Aulani in Ko Olina! There are some fantastic alternative locations on other beaches, with the best location determined more by the time of day of the session, length of the session and what kind of backgrounds you want. Bodhi will happily recommend several according to your needs and desires. Recommended times of day for family beach photography is early morning or late afternoon for the softest, warmest light, however, sessions can be any time of day as well.

To reserve an Disney Aulani family beach photography session, a deposit is required and is refundable if canceled more than 72 hours before your session. Refunds are NOT given for anything beyond Bodhi's personal control - like weather, wind, sunburns, rain, wet clothes, etc. Rescheduling due to weather is at the discretion of Bodhi*.

Bodhi was absolutely fantastic! We had a family photo of 20+ people. Bodhi was very professional and very genuine. We had multiple toddlers and infants and he made sure to communicate his process to guarantee the best outcome of photos. He has a great personality and was able to keep the attention of all of our small children. He had great ideas of what would make the picture pop, with colors and time of day and positions on location. His knowledge of the environment and professionalism really stood out. He was not pushy or rude and you could tell he wanted the best for our family. We will be using him again in the future for sure! Thanks again Bodhi! - the Ackerman Family
