My first conversation with Toren was about the surprise proposal he was planning for his girlfriend at the Fourseason Resort on Wailea Beach, Maui. He was so excited & (nervous) and wanted everything to go perfectly. They were on a trip from their home town of Anchorage and Kristin wanted two things, to be warm and to have One Romantic evening out. The Four Seasons Resort helped make every detail happen flawlessly. Toren wanted to plan a special sunset dinner overlooking the incredible Wailea Beach.

We planned it so that I would take some initial photos, paparazzi style, from far away. After the first course of dinner, Toren and Kristin’s server, Lacy introduced me as the ‘house photographer’ and we went down to the beach for some sweet shots with toes in the sand. The entire time, Kristin was so amazed at all the trouble Toren had gone through to make this evening special. They had a great time playing with the waves and we got some really intimate and great shots. This couple was so fun, their love and appreciation for each other really showed through.

As we walked back up from the beach to the dinner table, Toren turned to Kristin and dropped to one knee. You can see in the shots I captured, she said yes! She was so happy, shouting for joy and jumping up and down. We were able to get some great sunset photos, with the glowing bride to be and the gorgeous ring. We also had to get the “snow sand man” picture to send back home to Alaska!

As they got back to the table, the candles were lit and the romance continued….

Congrats to a wonderful couple!
