Okay guys, buckle up, because this is a cuuuuuuute session! Ruby has been one of my close friends since college and I’m so excited for her. Her and Ian have been together for the last three years and the anticipation of a proposal has been in the air for a while. When it didn’t happen on their last trip to Germany I knew it was going to happen on this friends trip to Hawaii, and I’m not mad about it! Wearing the hat of Hawaii Photographer this trip (again) has been freaking bomb.
This trip to Hawaii had been in the works for a couple of months and we were all getting super excited. The initial thought that Ian was going to propose beforehand while he and Ruby were in Germany. When he didn’t, we knew what was coming! (Thankfully Ruby was oblivious haha!). This trip has most definitely been a memorable one, and I’m 100% down to be the one getting all the awesome photos in Hawaii for everyone.
The Surprise Proposal
September 15th was a day for the books as we explored Hawaii and raced to catch the sunset at Chun’s Reef. Our suspicions of a proposal were confirmed when Ian had told us (Kayla, Riana and I) earlier on the trip that he brought the ring and that’s when the planning started. We had explored the East Side of the island that morning and went on a hike (a much longer hike than anticipated that cut our day a bit short). It was fun, but incredibly muddy haha, we checked out Maunawili Falls. Ruby was unsuspecting as we were all frantically trying to get to the Norther Shore in time to make this happen. Lemme tell you, keeping a secret like this is hard. BUT. We succeeded haha!
When we got to the beach I started taking cute photos of the girls on the trip to lead into taking photos of Ruby and Ian. Let’s be honest though, they knew that I would be stealing them for photos 24/7 on this trip haha!
After all the excitement we decided to go for a night swim, it was cut short by realizing how rocky the beach was and also after Riana informed us that Sharks like to hunt at night. (I’m not trying to get eaten by a Shark on this trip.) It made for some romantic photos though! Hawaii Photographer
