When you know, you know. For this set of Oahu engagement photography, Shane reached out to us with simple instructions: keep it a surprise. So with her trusty camera in tow (and sporting casual “I’m just an ordinary beachgoer” attire), Megan, our Oahu photographer, set out to the chosen destination of Yokohama Beach… only to find it closed!
With a quick locale change and some clever excuses, Shane was able to whisk Bailee away to the shores of Makua Beach, where Megan was secretly waiting. He took Bailee’s hand and guided her down the shore, and there he kneeled and popped the big question with the luminous Oahu valleys in the backdrop. And he managed to do it all while keeping it a total surprise–just check out Bailee’s stunned expression! Keep scrolling for all the ultra-romantic and sweet shots!
We can’t hear what Shane’s saying, but we can read it on their faces. This intense moment is what engagement dreams are made of… all captured in a once-in-a-lifetime photo.
This may have been a surprise engagement photoshoot, but it’s no surprise that she said yes!
After the big moment, the gig was up and Megan happily introduced herself as a professional Oahu photographer. Bailee was so surprised and ecstatic about her new engagement… this couple couldn’t wait to start their journey. And we were honored to capture their first steps down the path of marriage!
And helping out Shane with his ultimate surprise, Bailee’s family was waiting in the wings as his copilots! How gorgeous is this crew?!
And on the topic of gorgeous… keep swiping!
Congratulations, Bailee & Shane! Thank you for choosing Karma Hill Photography to capture your Oahu engagement photography. We hope you return for a Hawaii wedding, but wherever you choose to say “I do,” we wish you only the best in the years ahead and send our fond Aloha…
