We recently had the pleasure of photographing Tejea and Samantha’s surprise Maui proposal portrait! It was indeed a magical moment and one of celebration in more ways than one! Tejea, a master of coordination and secrecy, managed to pull off the surprise of a lifetime for his beloved Samantha! He knew it had to be a ninja-like production, so Samantha wouldn’t have a clue. Curious to see her answer? Keep reading! (A yes, of course!)
As you probably guessed, Samantha said yes! Their Maui proposal portrait was perfectly woven into another celebration too!
Samantha had just graduated from veterinary school and was in the process of applying for jobs, so Tejea wanted to celebrate her accomplishment in a special way. He knew that Hawaii was Samantha’s dream destination, so they finally took the trip to celebrate!
Our sweet couple met in organic chemistry lab during college and have been dating for six years. They have a strong bond built on trust and love. They have shared many special moments together, but this one was definitely one of the most unforgettable!
Their Maui proposal portrait took place at Ironwoods Beach, where our photographer pretended to be a beach-goer while the moment happened! Samantha had no idea what was about to happen and was completely surprised when Tejea got down on one knee and asked her to marry him! Her joy and delight filled the air, as you can see…
The couple is now looking forward to beginning the next chapter of their lives together as they embark on their journey as husband and wife! This was the next stepping stone in their romance… It was a beautiful moment to be part of and we are honored to have been able to capture this special moment in their lives!
The cliffs surrounding the beach provided a beautiful and dramatic backdrop for their Maui proposal portrait! It felt secluded and romantic with the ocean breeze and mist… Samantha got far more than just a dream vacation to celebrate finishing veterinary school. It was the perfect time to pop the question! We’ll take a note out of Tejea’s book! 😉
Congratulations, Samantha and Tejea! We are so happy for you both! You’re a beautiful couple, and we wish you all the best in planning your wedding!
