Sunrise Proposal on the North Shore
The great thing about a sunrise proposal on the north shore is there are empty beaches, great colors in the sky, and the girl never expects it because it is early in the morning! For this north shore proposal, we even had a message in a bottle! This couple is just so sweet, and I couldn’t get enough of how this sorta-shy gal takes the cutest photos!
We planned that I would get there early to strategically place the message in a bottle on the beach with a poem Qin had written tucked inside. Then, I’d jump into the bushes and wait until they arrived! Qin, Yun, and a group of their friends would walk the beach at sunrise and come upon the bottle at just the right moment.
The couple and their friends arrived and piled out of the cars. As the group walked down the beach at sunrise, the others started to slow down and Qin and Yun carried on ahead of the rest. Soon, the lovebirds “stumbled” upon this message in a bottle, and she started to open it. Suddenly, she realized what was going on, and Qin dropped to one knee! The friends rushed to surround them and capture a few shots on their own. He asked her to marry him, and she said YES! She was so surprised! Yun was even more surprised when her new fiance pointed out the photographer hiding in the bushes.
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
From there we started the engagement session. We stayed at the north shore proposal beach for a bit and then headed further north to get some variation with some greenery and lava rock. We ended at Ho’okipa Beach Park so we could watch the surfers and get some shots out on the rocks. Ho’okipa gave us bright blue water and a glorious morning sky!
Qin and Yun, thank you so much for letting Engaged on Maui help you pull off your special day! You had such a beautiful and romantic sunrise proposal on the north shore!
