A Dream Come True

On a beautiful morning at Makena Cove, Ryley surprised Erin with the ultimate question – “Will you marry me?” And with a big smile and gasp she said yes! Our camera was hiding in the distance and caught every precious moment! The couple met in high school and have been dating for six years. The two had briefly broken up after high school but found their way back to each other and have been inseparable ever since. Now, they are ready to start their newly engaged life together!

The sound of the waves breaking against the rocky lava coast filled the air as Ryley and Erin stood at Makena Cove for their Maui proposal portrait. The lovely tropical setting enhanced the romantic ambiance, with the sun pouring down on the pair as they shared this life-changing moment!

Our delightful couple shared a beautiful kiss with a splash of ocean waves! They didn’t mind getting wet as they were on cloud nine. It was an honor to witness this special moment filled with hope, love, and happiness! And aloha, of course!
