Last Minute Maui North Shore Beach Proposal
Caitlin is another photographer here on the island. She’s been with Mikey the better part of a decade. He’s just been waiting for the right time to pop the question. So, when he heard that Caitlin’s brother was going to be in town, he felt like that was the right time. He called me up the day before, and asked if I would help him with a last minute Maui North Shore beach proposal. I told him, “You just tell me where, and I’ll be there!”
There is this really cool little pocket beach in north Maui that is typically pretty empty. It’s kind of pushed back in this cove, and there’s not a ton of wind. Mikey came up with a plan for how to get Caitlin to that beach, and I just hung out in the bushes waiting for them to get there. He had this cool idea that I hadn’t seen before. Just before they started their walk down the beach, Mikey surreptitiously called Caitlin’s mom. Then he dropped his phone into his pocket so her mom could hear the whole thing!
Phone in his pocket, Mikey and Caitlin made their way down to the beach. He led her to the water’s edge. When the time was right, he dropped down to one knee and popped the question! It was a really moving moment, especially because I’ve known both of them for a couple years now. It was really cool to see him finally ask her to marry him because all of the friends have been hounding them about when it was going to happen!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
The sunset was gorgeous on the north shore just after the proposal. We popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate! We did a few engagement photos there on the beach, and then they were on their way to Hali’imaile General Store to have a fancy engagement dinner!
Caitlin and Mikey: Congratulations on your engagement! I am so honored that you chose Engaged on Maui to photograph your last minute Maui North Shore beach proposal! Mahalo and much love!
