Surprise proposal on the beach | Four Seasons Oahu at Ko'Olina Photographer

For A & M, it was love at first sight. It all started as chance encounter on Tinder and a casual meet-up when they both happened to be in the same area, but from the moment they first met, they were inseparable. One year later, they found themselves in Hawaii, and A knew it was the perfect time to ask his love to be his wife. I first met A during his stay at the Four Seasons Oahu at Ko Olina, and he explained how we wanted to surprise her with a morning proposal on the secluded beach, but he also wanted to give M the opportunity to be dressed up for the occasion. Together, we decided he would ask her casually if she wanted to do a little couple's shoot and capture the Hawaii scenery during their downtime. She was game, so we secretly schemed a setup.

We started with a few casual photos around the resort as we made our way down to the beach. A brought a small backpack with water bottles, conveniently hiding the ring box. Once we got down to the beach, we began to enact our plan.

While A "took care of his backpack", I asked M to soak in the ocean views and pose for a few photos on the beach on her own. Little did she know Alex was sneaking up behind her...

"This is forever, you know," she said, hugging him tightly.

She didn't have to see the ring up close to say yes, but when it came time to put it on and she got a close-up look at the beautiful piece he had chosen for her, there was a second wave of excitement.
