Maui Chartered Boat Proposal
Mike wanted to do something that we hadn’t done before, which we are all about! We love doing beach proposals, but it’s awesome to think out of the box, too. He wanted to propose out on the water. So, he had chartered the boat Shadowfax. And yes, that’s Shadowfax like Gandolf’s horse. I know, I know, I’m super nerdy for knowing that……but anyway. Here’s how our first Maui chartered boat proposal went down.
Mike initially told Dana was his dad had gifted them this chartered cruise out of Ma’alaea Harbor that morning. Actually, Mike had chartered the boat to propose to her at sea. Marie, our associate photographer, was also on board as well as an assistant. Dana thought our photographer team was hired by Shadowfax to take some promotional photos, so Dana didn’t suspect anything amiss with having photographers along for the cruise.
When the moment was right, Captain Mike turned off the engine. Mike, the guy proposing, said the keyword so everyone on board knew he was about to propose and everyone scurried to get into place! Mike led Dana to the bow, dropped to one knee, and asked her to marry him. Dana was of course blown away!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We spent the rest of the time on the boat doing some romantic shots with the newly engaged couple cuddling up on the bow and snuggling up below deck. Marie was able to get shots with different visual interest on different parts of Shadowfax. It was a beautiful morning with light wind and calm seas which is what you can typically expect from morning sails out of Ma’alaea.
Mike and Dana: Congratulations on your exciting Maui chartered boat proposal! It was a wonderful morning at sea! Thanks for choosing Engaged on Maui to help plan and capture your incredible proposal. And a special thank you to Captain Mike and the crew of Shadowfax for helping make this proposal spectacular! |
