Private Sunset Sailboat Proposal
Yash and Astha met during freshman year of college. They became friends, then best friends, and finally started dating at the end of that year. Ten years later, after they had seen each other grow and been through long distance, Yash was excited to take the next step with a private sunset sailboat proposal.
Privacy was key for his proposal. Right away, Yash was deliberating between proposing at a private landing during a helicopter tour or a sailboat proposal. With either option, it could just be the two of them plus the photographer and crew (helicopter pilot or sailboat captain and first mate).
Since Yash chose a private sunset sailboat proposal, the plan was for our photographer Angie to pretend like she was training to be part of the crew while also taking some new marketing photos during the sail.
We worked with Maui Custom Charters. They are experts on the water and really helped us pull off the plan.
When it was time for Yash to propose, he led Astha to the bow and paused so Angie could get into position. He got down on one knee and stayed down long enough for Angie to get some great shots of the moment Astha said yes.
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
After the proposal, Yash and Astha celebrated with some champagne and engagement photos around the Nova as the sun set in the distance.
Yash and Astha: Thank you for letting us be a small part of the next exciting chapter in your lives! We hope whenever you’re in the ocean, you’re reminded of your beautiful private sunset sailboat proposal in Maui!
