A Family Surprise! Ryan & Kayla’s Maui Proposal Photography


Ryan contacted us to take photos of his blended family with Kayla, but there was one thing he wanted to add in….. A surprise proposal to Kayla! If there is one thing we love here at KHP, it’s surprise Maui Proposal Photography so we were so were excited to be in on the fun.

This Alaska family was visiting Maui to escape the cold Alaska winter for a bit, while Ryan loves the cold, Kayla needed to de-thaw for a bit. So what better time to pop the question than on a beach in Maui! It’s much easier to put a ring on a non-frozen finger LOLOL.

One of their kids had a friend along on the trip so we captured some photos of them as well. After capturing the whole group, we started doing family photos, which always also includes couples portraits. While we were doing Ryan and Kayla’s couples portraits, Ryan popped the question and of course Kayla said YES!!

Being the super sleuth that she is Kayla and her oldest daughter Taryn had their suspicions when Ryan said he had booked family portraits (I mean not many men are excited to book a family session) but was happy that their suspicions panned out and the fun-loving couple was engaged before the end of the session.

It had been sprinkling throughout most of the session, but towards the end the rain rolled in, but before getting us all soaking wet, gave us the most beautiful rainbow! They say rain is a blessing, so rain AND a rainbow must be a double blessing for this sweet couple’s future together!
