A Majestic Morning Surprise ~ Kelly & Zach’s Maui Proposal

On a misty morning, as day was just beginning to break, we had the absolute pleasure of capturing the surprise of a lifetime for Kelly. As Zach dropped to one knee to commence with his Maui Proposal idea, it was as if the world melted away, leaving just love behind. This was a beautiful moment made all the better by the gorgeous surroundings of the Waihe’e Valley Ridge Trail. The lush greenery of the jungle, the dramatic cut of the land, the stunning light. The whole scene was like something out of a dream.

As an avid outdoor couple, this was the perfect setting for them. Frequent travelers and hikers, they were in their element among the natural beauty that the hike had to offer. Completely caught off guard, Kelly realized later that Zach hadn’t promised not to propose on this trip, as he had on previous ones. It was a clue in the most subtle of ways. Both knowing that this was the path for them, the engagement was the perfect next chapter in a love story that began blooming years ago. We are so happy these two found the love they deserve with one another and are so honored we could be here to capture this magical moment for them. Thank you, Zach and Kelly, for letting Karma Hill Photography share in the joy of your proposal.
