Sunset Proposal at Black Sand Beach

Erin contacted us a couple months before she and Lauren were coming to Maui to start planning her romantic proposal. Just from our phone conversations, we could tell they would be so much fun! Erin exuded a friendly warmth and described Lauren as “the type of girl who will leave an everlasting impression on your heart.” This sunset proposal at Black Sand Beach was just perfect for them. The sunset was just as fiery as their love for each other!


Erin planned to serenade Lauren with a song on her ukulele right before the proposal. She was a little nervous and didn’t want an audience on a crowded beach. She was instantly drawn to the dramatic scenery at this South Maui beach. Since this tends to be a more private location, we knew it was the perfect spot for Erin to pop the question.


Erin and Lauren actually arrived earlier than expected to the beach. To be honest, we would rather you come a little late rather than early. We don’t want you to beat your photographer there! Luckily, photographer Jess was early as well and ready for action! The plan went smoothly and we loved seeing the shocked look on Lauren’s face when Erin got down on one knee.


The Simple Proposal was the right fit for Erin because she knew they didn’t need a ton of photo time and the one location was just right. It was a bonus that sunset colors were popping that night. The contrast between the warm tones of the sunset and dark sand takes the sunset to a whole other level! It matched the fire these two have for each other!

Erin and Lauren: Congratulations on your stunning sunset proposal at Black Sand Beach! We loved spending time with you and capturing your engagement!
