Total Surprise Maui Proposal

Remembering back to the very moment Rachel realized the total surprise Maui proposal her boyfriend had planned was being photographed. Her reaction was absolutely priceless! Such a genuine moment & so utterly perfect!

Michael and I had planned it all via a few phone calls & lots of texting. Staying at the Gorgeous Four Seasons Maui, we thought of different locations, but he knew her dream was to get engaged on a white sandy beach. We were not going to actually get to meet before hand, so I had to describe the location I recommended & be in position so when they finally there it would be perfect. Our timing changed though as Rachel had a few wardrobe changes & then on the way was questioning why he wanted to walk on the beach & not the sidewalk. Not sure what he said to her, but they made their way to the perfect spot & he said the magic words he had always wanted to say and screamed “YES”! 

Couldn’t have gone any better. I later learned that Rachael is a wedding planner & seen me on the beach and as she walked by thought that I must be waiting on the beach for a surprise proposal, BUT had no idea it was hers! Her excitement was absolutely priceless throughout the entire evening. Of course Michael was equally excited, but her expression was so perfect.

Our timing couldn’t have been any better as right on Que the sun started to dip towards the horizon & was as pretty as it gets. Using a shallow depth of field I was able to keep the focus entirely on them & still get all that pretty sunset in the back ground. She was genuinely on could nine & more excited then I could possibly imagine. Congrats to these two lovers who are now engagged!

Bianca & Jordan’s Sugar Beach Events Spectacular

Bianca & Jordan’s Sugar Beach Events Spectacular

When Bianca & Jordan first reached out to me about being part of their wedding I was so excited. Sounded like it was going to be one for the ages.  We had first talked on the phone, but as were in discussions we started texting. Although I had never met them, our texts were so fun and it was as if we were long time friends who just hadn't seen each other for a long time. Love when you connect with your clients like that!

What a great venue they had chosen for their nuptials at  Sugar Beach Events in Kihei Maui! With an incredible beach & sunset just feet from the venue I knew it was going to be amazing. In addition Sugar Beach Events has a reputation for producing super high quality events with every detail taken care including the most delicious food! 

Bianca & Jordan's wedding day was finally upon on & it was everything I thought it would be.The two of them super calm getting ready with their besties & families. Especially enjoyed suave Jordan & his groomsman getting rowdy just  before the wedding.  

With about a hundred friends & family in attendance sitting facing these perfect palm trees & incredible arch adorned in huge elephant ears their wedding venue looked amazing! Wiping tears from his face as Bianca walked down the aisle with her dad, the scene was set.  They had enlisted one of their best friends to be their minister & seeing that he was out of state he had to do all of the proper paperwork to get his credentials so he could be their minister. How special is that to enlist one of your best friends  to be your minister??

Their wedding vows were beautiful & finally they said their I Do's & the crowd erupted in cheers. Love seeing all this joy! I chased after them as they hugged we did snaps around the grounds of the venue with all of their favorite people. 

Venturing in the dining room & dance floor my friend DJ Dan had taken over & got them out for a first dance. It was near the end of it that their huge wedding party crashed the dance floor & completely surrounded  them. Super fun witnessing this spontaneous joy! 

Looking outside the sun was setting & turning the sky into magic colors. Of course we chased it & got some magic shots to go with the magic colors!

Maui Romance Photographer for Couples seeking adventure

Maui Romance Photographer for Couples seeking adventure

So you’ve been planning your Maui vacation for months & months, looking through all the options to make sure you have plenty of time for all the countless opportunities for you and your family! Definitely you should consider doing a Maui family shoot as I have heard this over and over again, that not only the experience of doing a photography session amazing in it self, but the results far exceeded anything they had done in the past!

Those fleeting moments where your child is still tiny disappear so quickly and that is why now is the perfect time to photograph them now. As you know, when you get older the days & weeks and months seem to tick faster & faster and before you know it your little one is a teenager learning to drive and just about out of the house. Incredible how fast they grow up!

Another reason why EVERY time you are altogether as a family you need to recognize it as an important moment is exactly about what I wrote about in another blog post in my wedding section. I had already shot their wedding years before & the same family was back in Maui doing family portraits with me again. Absolutely the sweetest family with everyone laughing & hugging & having the best time creating great candid moments. Midway through the session, one of the family members came up to me & thanked me for the great memories I had captured at the wedding. Of course I thanked them.

She then proceeded to tell me that the images I captured at the wedding were super important as that was the last time the whole family was together before the cancer struck their grandmother & those images were everything to them! My point is, every time you are together as family honor that moment & get some beautiful images as every day is an important day!

So I LOVE GETTING CREATIVE and exploring. Of course I’m open for a beach shoot or maybe at your hotel, either in the morning when the sky is that BLUE=BLUE and OR my preferred time at sunset! But I am super open to adventuring to new spots or maybe YOUR favorite spot to do your Maui Family Vacation Photos. I am totally down for going off the beaten path to find the perfect spot that speaks to you OR if you want I can show you some spots that you had no idea about.

Do you have something special in mind? Perhaps a surprise for a family member? What ever it is I am willing to go the extra mile to capture the candid moments & the beautiful moments that will become the cherished memories that are SO IMPORTANT! Thank you in advance for letting me apart of these memories! LETS CHAT!

Just loving Tara’s great dress! Tara & Dave Eloping to Hawaii all the way from Florida. All she wanted was to marry her toes in the sand, on the beautiful beach in a great dress! Dreams come true! I purposely included the out of focus image as her dress was refracting in the sunlight creating that great bokeh. Love me some bokeh!
