Perfect Time & Place – Ryan & Sabina’s Maui Proposal Portraits


Last Updated on April 30, 2024 by Karma Hill

Last week, we had the pleasure of taking Ryan and Sabina’s Maui proposal portraits. Captured on the gorgeous shores of Ironwoods Beach — these photos are stunning! In addition, our passionate pair looked beautiful in every picture. Continue scrolling to experience this collection for yourself.

This proposal was unique, and we’re glad we could be part of it! Ryan and Sabina’s photographer, Vanessa, met with them on the sandy seaside under the sunset. Sabina thought this session was for couples and family portraits. However, five minutes into shooting, Vanessa positioned Sabina so Ryan could get down on one knee behind Sabina! As soon as she turned around, she was full of shock. You could tell she didn’t expect to get engaged at this moment!

The Romantic Maui Proposal Portraits

Ironwoods Beach was the perfect location for this surprise proposal! The sun left a dreamy golden glow on the seaside as it lowered onto the horizon. Then the natural landscapes enhanced the intimate ambiance! Surrounding our delightful duo is dramatic cliffs, sapphire waves, and epic lava rocks. Above all, we love how the long sandy shoreline provided Ryan and Sabina with plenty of space to take a sunset walk! We can’t imagine this charming couple getting engaged anywhere else on the island because this west Maui spot is magical!

We had a lovely time capturing Ryan and Sabina’s Maui proposal portraits! Since our radiant couple was full of bliss, it was easy for us to photograph remarkable moments. Not to mention, they dressed perfectly for this session! We adore their relaxed beachy attire. However, our favorite thing about these photos is how Ryan and Sabina took advantage of every breathtaking landscape at Ironwoods Beach! Our lighthearted pair stood on the cliffs, sat on the rocks, and even wrote in the sand!

Congratulations, Ryan and Sabina! Thank you for sharing this beautiful occasion with us. We wish you all the best with planning your wedding and hope to see you on the island again!
