Annie & Antonio | Makapu'u Surprise Proposal

Oahu hawaii surprise proposal engagement session

Surprise proposals are always sessions that I will never forget. There is so much excitement, adrenaline and love. This proposal was a little unique from the other ones I've been able to capture, because this time I actually had no idea it was going to happen! Antonio caught the both of us by surprise but I'm so happy that I was there to document it for the two of them. I loved talking to these two, and the whole session felt like we were old friends just hanging out! The two of them had such a care-free and fun spirit, and were down to do any silly idea I had. We started the session at one of my favorite lookout spots for a few photos before we headed down to the lava rock and beach.

These were so fun! I told Antonio to chase Annie down and "snatch" her like he was stealing her away, and they turned out so cute!

At the very end of our session when I felt like we got all the shots, I asked them if they had anything else in mind before we wrapped up. Antonia yells "yeah I do!" (which shocked me - because usually the girls have all the ideas) and when I look over the next thing I knew he was on one knee and pulling out a ring! I swear in that moment I almost fell over, but I grabbed my camera and captured the moment.

Annie (and I) were so surprised! She even admitted that she suspected he was going to propose during the session, but waiting until the very end caught her completely off guard. I give Antonio major props for keeping it together the whole time, and pulling off the sweetest proposal.
