Sunset Proposal in Wailea
When Mitchell contacted me he know that he wanted to propose at sunset at a beautiful beach in Wailea, Maui. I love proposal photos that happen right at sundown – and this sunset proposal in Wailea, Maui did not disappoint.
Mitchell sent me a photo book ahead of time that contained photos of him and Kenzie and some of their favorite times together. She’s a big Disney fan so he knew that he wanted “Once Upon a Time” written on the top of his memory box. He was scheduled to arrive about 20 minute before sundown, but that ended up being more like 10 minutes before sundown. But it all worked wonderfully! The sun was PERFECT and the clouds lit up nicely.
Mitchell led Kenzie to the beach and toward the memory box that we had stashed in the sand. He had to convince her to pick it up, but once she did, it was all smiles (and a few tears). After Kenzie finished flipping through the photo book, Mitchell got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION:
We stayed at the same location for the engagement session since the sun was quickly setting. Kenzie is a photographer’s dream: great style and even better reactions. When I used the F word (fiance, of course!) she teared up again. She was just so, so, so happy to be engaged. And that dress? It was her grandmother’s! Grandma’s got style for sure (and so does her granddaughter)!
Kenzie and Mitchell: thank you so much for allowing us to share in your joy! Your sunset proposal in Wailea, Maui was nothing short of perfect!
