Wookie and Gillian are natives to Hawaii, they call Oahu home. Since Wookie wanted to propose to Gillian somewhere spectacular he knew he needed our help. After doing some research Wookie knew he had found the location to pop the question. Our 10,000-foot dormant volcano here in Maui ended up being the perfect choice for this surprise proposal.
We wanted to be sure Wookie had the perfect spot to propose. There is a breathtaking location at the summit of Haleakala we knew was completely perfect. This spot is a bit of a challenge to get to but Wookie was up for it. He was confident that Jillian would absolutely adore the spot we helped him select.
As we mentioned in our post, IS A HALEAKALA PROPOSAL RIGHT FOR YOU? there is no place for the photographer to hide for a proposal like this. The good news is there are other tourists on the volcano so it is very easy for the photographer to blend in. When Wookie and Gillian arrived at the place he was going to propose to the spot he was going to propose, he dropped down on one knee. As soon as he knelt down Gillian was awestruck. She thought they were just sightseeing so she was completely surprised and of course said YES!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
The Simple Proposal was the right fit for Wookie and Gillian. They had a great time celebrating their epic Haleakala Crater Proposal as the sun went down. After the proposal, Amber captured breathtaking images of the couple as the sun went down.
Wookie and Gillian, thank you so much for choosing Engaged on Maui to help you pull off your epic Haleakala Crater proposal. I’m so happy that your mountain top engagement was spectacular
