Surprise Proposal at Makena Cove
If you ask Manny and Cristina how they met, they’ll tell you they met at church. Of course, that’s not the whole story, but I will leave it up to them to tell the rest at their own discretion. Manny reached out to me wanting to surprise Cristina with a proposal during their family photography session in Makena. This surprise proposal at Makena Cove in Maui took a little bit of finesse and a whole lot of go-with-the-flow. But in the end, Cristina’s reaction was so worth it!
The plan was that we would begin the photo session like a typical family session and within the first 5 minutes, I would cue Manny and that would be his gateway to propose. After the proposal, we would finish the rest of our session as an engagement/family session!
Manny had put the ring in my camera bag ahead of time so I had to get Cristina to turn around so I could give it to him when the time was right. I positioned her and slipped the ring to Manny. Then I backed up, said the cue, and watched it unfold! There were definitely some tears…but she said YES!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We stayed over by Makena Cove and the surrounding area. The morning was absolutely gorgeous and we had the whole place to ourselves!
Manny and Cristina, and sweet baby Isa: thank you for letting me share in this beautiful moment with the both of you. Your surprise proposal at Makena Cove was so sweet and intimate!
