Halona Cove Engagement Photos and Surprise Proposal
Hawaii Engagement Photographer
We met Domi and Ryan for a Hawaii sunrise for their Eternity Beach engagement photos. It is a beautiful cove, also known as Cockroach Cove or Halona Cove, on the southeast side of Oahu. I should also note, there are no cockroaches.
😉Domi and Ryan are Texans living life up in Austin (yeah, we’re pretty jelly about that!!). They began their vacation in Kauai and hopped over to Oahu. They were celebrating their trip with a couples session. The thing was, we didn’t know it was their engagement session. Yup, Ryan had a surprise proposal in mind. We had a great time exploring the cove and bonding over the love for our fur babies. Halfway through taking their photos, Ryan came up to me and whispered that he was proposing to Domi. We were so surprised and excited to see her reaction!
Surprise Proposal at Eternity Beach
We walked along the cliffs to pose them with the rising sun and crashing waves behind them for that perfect proposal backdrop. Moments later, Ryan pulled a ring out of his pocket. She was totally surprised!! Long story short, Domi packed their bags for the trip to Hawaii. So what did Ryan do? HE MAILED THE RING. Holy cannoli, y’all. Not only that, but he had to get in a pretend “fight” with Domi so he could leave the hotel and pick up the ring. He spent $70 worth on pineapples and treats so he could hide the ring in a grocery bag. We couldn’t believe the lengths he went to keep it a secret and man were we impressed (and extremely entertained).
These two were not afraid to have fun splashing around in the water or being super intimate and cozy together (I mean, they did just get engaged!!!) so we let them do their thing. Documenting their story and witnessing such a special moment in their lives was a beautiful reminder of why we love our job so much. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect sunrise for their Eternity Beach engagement photos.
This shoot is so, so sweet. You did a great job on this 🙂
Omg I’m literally almost crying!! Not only do these two look absolutely amazing! But man, what a memorable story to begin their journey forever together!! These photos are stunning and I can literally hear the waves crashing as he surprises her with that ring!! Alllll the feels!!
What a fun way to do an engagement session! I love that he had to go to great lengths to hide the ring. Such a beautiful session at Cockroach Cove & so happy to know there are no actual roaches there!
