Are you looking for a simple proposal on the beach? Or maybe you want to propose at the top of Waimea Canyon on Kauai with an EPIC landscape?
Really, you can’t go wrong with either.
I’ve had individuals plan very sweet and simple proposals while walking along the beach. I’ve had other individuals plan adventure shoots while their significant other is none the wiser that they are going to get
proposed to during the shoot!My personal philosophy is that the perfect proposal in Hawaii is the one that best represents YOU TWO and your personalities.
You will remember this moment for the rest of your life and so it should be an experience that feels natural and meaningful.
Add something extra special to your proposal by planning a sweet picnic dinner! Or maybe you want to make it a little more extravagant by reserving a private dinner!
Andy and Brittany, topped off their proposal shoot with a stunning private dinner on the beach with their close friends and family at the Four Seasons Hualalai.
If you’re planning an intimate Hawaiian engagement shoot or elopement, did you know you can book a private dinner for two to make the event extra special? You get to enjoy each other’s company while eating world-class cuisine and listening to the sounds of the ocean and your very own private ukulele musician serenading you in the background.
It made Andy and Brittany’s proposal that much more meaningful!
Many times when individuals plan a surprise proposal in Hawaii, they are traveling with family and friends while others want to take part in the celebration!
Andy and Brittany, for example, traveled to Hawaii with some of their closest friends. They were all in on the surprise and so after Andy proposed, they were joined by their friends for a dinner celebration! Dinner after the proposal is the perfect way to include your close family and friends in the celebration!
You’re already in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
So, while you’re here, why not go ahead and plan an epic adventure engagement shoot after you pop the question?! I’ve had couples schedule an engagement shoot within a day or two after their proposal and it is always such a meaningful experience!
My personal recommendation is to plan your proposal near the beginning of your trip. That way you won’t be stressing over it and you can take the duration of your trip to celebrate this monumental occasion!
