Our sweet couple had previously visited Maui together, but this trip was extra special! As they walked down the beach and while Elisa’s back was turned, Sean got down on one knee and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him! Elisa was completely surprised and overjoyed, and of course, said yes! The couple is thrilled to begin this new chapter of their lives together, and they can’t wait to see what the future holds…

Our beautiful couple met in Austin six years ago and spent two of those years long-distance! Sean said those two years “made our relationship that much stronger.” So little did Elisa know, Sean had been planning the perfect proposal for months! They recently moved to San Fransico and are now more than ready to begin their new life together!

They had the most magical sunset at Southside Beach for their Maui proposal portrait to end the day! The golden, luminous light shone down on our charming pair as they danced by the water’s edge – so romantic! Our lovebirds spent the rest of the trip celebrating their engagement and making plans for the future. We couldn’t be happier for you both!

Congratulations, Sean and Elisa! We wish you a lifetime of happiness, joy, and love! Best of luck in the wedding planning process!
