Today on the blog, we’re sharing the story behind Andrew and Erika’s bright and sunny beach proposal. Enjoy!
Bright and Sunny Proposal
The first thing that often comes to mind for beach proposals is sunset, but doing the proposal a little earlier in the day can make the colors really vibrant. For this proposal and engagement session, we got the best of both worlds – a bright and sunny beach proposal that radiates tropical vibes ending with romantic sunset lighting among the lava rocks.
Andrew wanted to know the perfect spot on the beach to propose to his love Erika, so he decided to add an orchid flower circle. Along with adding a pop of purple to the sand, the flower circle acted as a marker for Andrew to know he had reached their destination and it was time to pop the question.
They began to walk down the beach, and at first, Andrew got nervous because he couldn’t see the flower circle right away. We placed the flower circle further down the beach to get them to a more private area. Andrew kept leading Erika until he noticed the flowers and brought her to the middle of the circle. Andrew got down on one knee and Erika was stunned!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We took advantage of the gorgeous light at the proposal beach. The sun glistening off the ocean made a perfect backdrop for playfulness. Of course, we had to get some photos with palm trees too!
Once the sun started going down, we headed to our second location. The darker lava rocks made a nice contrast to the blues and greens from the first spot. Having enough time to go to two locations, plus the lovely weather that day, helped us capture Andrew and Erika’s love among diverse beauty of Maui.
Andrew and Erika: It was a pleasure photographing your beach proposal and newly engaged moments! Congratulations!
