Being a Maui Proposal Photographer means we play an important role in planning these exciting moments. When you’ve found the perfect partner, deciding to propose is easy. Deciding how to propose is the challenging part. 

So we were overjoyed when Chad asked us to be a part of this momentous occasion for him and Stephanie! It was the most beautiful morning with a beautiful couple — Look at some of the photos below!

The Start of Something Amazing

Last Tuesday, we met Chad & Stephanie on the shores of Southside Beach for a portrait session. While Stephanie looked amazing and was ready to capture some beautiful photos, she was unaware of one very important detail: this was also a Maui engagement shoot!

As the first light of day found its place over the ocean, and as morning birds sang from the mountain, Chad kneeled before his beloved and asked her to become his wife. 

Chad was crying, Stephanie was crying, WE were crying — it was so romantic! Want to see for yourself? As their Maui proposal photographer, we captured the tearful moments and are excited to share them now!

Ashlyn [from Karma Hill Photography] sent me a lovely email detailing out the best way to approach this and she made this such a simple decision!

Looking Toward the Future after a Maui Proposal

After Stephanie said “Yes,” there was still fun to be had. We took the newly engaged couple around Southside Beach so they could take in this exciting moment and get even more photos. 

The danced at the water’s edge, kissed under a palm tree, and of course showed off the impressive ring!

We’re all still energized by the amazing vibes from this session. It’s such a treat to be a Maui Proposal Photographer and get to witness these huge, joyful moments. 

And now it’s time for Stephanie & Chad to plan their wedding! We know they have a lot to think about, but we hope their journey leads them back to Maui soon!
