Love On The Beach – Gavin & Kaiah’s Oahu Proposal Portrait


Last Updated on April 30, 2024 by Karma Hill

We love a good surprise, and Gavin had the best kind up his sleeve! He planned to propose to the love of his life, Kaiah, on the beach! And thankfully, we were right there to capture every precious moment of their Oahu proposal portrait. Keep reading to see how sweet and romantic their beautiful moment unfolded…

The Big Question

So, Gavin and Kaiah met through mutual friends and have been dating for 5 years, and as you can imagine, Gavin felt both excited and nervous about proposing! The plan was this: Gavin would lead Kaiah down to the beach, and as they rounded the corner, she would then see the bold sign “Marry Me,” and the secret was out! As he got down on one knee, Kaiah couldn’t wait to say, “yes!” It was so romantic and sweet…the flower petals made it even feel more special! Their Oahu proposal portraits capture just the beginning of their next chapter together!

Happy News To Share

And happy pair were joined by a few close friends and family who were overjoyed to celebrate the happy news! It was very special for Kaiah and Gavin to share this wonderful moment with those they love…

Our sweet pair was on cloud nine, as you can imagine, as we continued to capture their Oahu proposal portraits! This gorgeous setting of Paradise Cove was the perfect place to pop the question. The tranquil waters, palm trees, and tide pools were a gorgeous backdrop for a monumental moment such as this!
