Romantic Proposal in Northwest Maui
Sometimes I love it when guys want to shake it up a bit. I mean, I love stalking you guys during the proposal (or hiding in the bushes), but sometimes it is way easier if the girl knows she’s going to be a part of the photoshoot! That was exactly the plan for this romantic proposal in Northwest Maui.
Luke, the groom-to-be, contacted me wanting to find the perfect location to propose to his girlfriend Sarah. He wanted lava rocks and blue ocean–so I knew just the place. Northwest Maui is absolutely gorgeous. You get blue water, lava rock escarpments, and often times rainbows!
The plan was that Sarah thought this was a glamour shoot for her that Luke had booked. Sarah is absolutely gorgeous. She actually reminds me of Jennifer Lawrence a bit with her bright blue eyes and soft features. We began the photo session as a glamour shoot and Luke was “assisting” me. When I found the spot Luke and I had discussed, I laid down a blanket and asked Sarah to take a seat. Then I asked her if it would be OK for Luke to join her for a few because, you know, he looked so nice and everything.
Once Luke sat down, he wasted no time. I love Sarah’s reaction to what he was telling her. She was SO caught off-guard and couldn’t believe it! There were a bunch of tears and a whole lot of “are you kidding me?!”–but she definitely said yes!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
Because of the diversity of Ironwoods Beach, we decided to stay there for the duration of our session. It was really windy, but WOW was it beautiful! We got a great sunset to round off their perfect proposal!
Luke and Sarah: I loved your modern twist on proposal photography. Everything from Luke’s idea for the set up to Sarah’s reaction, the ring–everything–every moment was so emotion-filled and beautiful. Thank you for choosing me to be your Maui proposal photographer for your romantic proposal in Northwest Maui!
Congratulations and enjoy your first holiday season as fiances!
