A Sunset Proposal at Makena Cove
On the even of Edward’s proposal we hit a small snag in the plan: Lara had settled in to her hotel room and really didn’t want to go out for a drive! Luckily, Edward tempted her with some wine and got her to take the hour drive south to Paako Cove (also known as Secret Cove and Makena Cove) so he could pop the question!
Edward knew he wanted a picture perfect location for his proposal. And Makena Cove was just the place for that!
Because of the small snafu in our plan, Edward didn’t get out to the beach until the sun was just below the horizon. We had a few short minutes to capture the proposal before the sun set! When Lara turned to look at the ocean, Edward got behind her and when she turned around, he was down on one knee. Lara actually danced when he asked her! She was SO excited! Behind the camera, even I couldn’t stop smiling.
The Engagement Session:
We stayed at Makena Cove for our session as the sun was quickly setting! What made this proposal even more special was that BOTH of Lara and Edward’s mothers were there to watch it all happen! Even though we lost light quickly after the proposal, I think it went down splendidly.
Edward and Lara: thank you for choosing Engaged on Maui to capture your beautiful sunset Makena Cove proposal! And Lara, we are all just so happy that you love wine and were willing to leave your hotel room in exchange for a bottle 🙂
