Marry Me! – Rishi & Angela’s Maui Surprise Proposal


Last Updated on August 30, 2021 by Karma Hill

Rishi reached out to us with a very special request…. to help with his proposal of course!! He wanted to propose on Valentine’s Day on a beautiful beach in Maui. It doesn’t get much more romantic than that. But planning a Maui surprise proposal isn’t as easy as it sounds if you want to be sure someone is there capturing it.

When planning a surprise wedding proposal for Rishi & Angela there were some factors involved.  They had to be in the same place at the same time as our photographer. Their photographer had to know who they’re looking for and exactly where they were. Oh and did we mention be a master of stealth so that Angela didn’t see the photographer and ruin the surprise.

We set Rishis’ mind at ease though and assured him we’d make it happen. His only job was …. ‘just get her there’!

Well, Rishi did his part! He got her to the beach! First step … done! He made eye contact with our photographer Kela and Angela didn’t see her! Rishi walked Angela down to the water and proposed so fast we almost missed it! Phew!! Thankfully Kela didn’t take her eye off the couple because just seconds into their beach walk Rishi couldn’t wait, the walk was over, he got down and proposed to Angela!! It was so beautiful and she was clearly over the moon!!!
