Life With You – Dylan & Chase’s Big Island Proposal Portrait


Love was in the air on the Big Island as Dylan and Chase celebrated a moment they’ll never forget! These two best friends, who met at Pepperdine University in September 2021, have been inseparable ever since. After dating for about three years and just finishing college together, they’re ready to embark on their next adventure: grad school. But before that, Dylan had one more surprise up his sleeve – a Big Island proposal portrait! And we were happy to make it happen!

Dylan couldn’t contain his excitement as he prepared to propose to Chase. The setting was perfect, with the soft colors of the sunset and the romantic lighting creating an unforgettable atmosphere. Chase, completely unaware of what was about to happen, was taken by surprise when she turned around to see Dylan on one knee, asking the big question. Her answer? A resounding yes!
