SURPRISE PROPOSAL
IN HAWAII

Amber & Evan
Category: Proposal photographer Hawaii // Oahu

The first time I heard about Hawaii, I was probably five years old.
It had the look of a colorful, crazy old wizard with a long beard, who, tired about his stressful life, packed his stuff and left to Honolulu (I just discovered that in the English version he actually flies to Bermuda).
I don’t know how many times I lied on the couch in my foggy, sleepy hometown in the North of Italy and watched Merlin escaping to Hawaii in “The sword in the stone”.
Since then, Hawaii have always been a metaphor for me.
The epitome of an exotic, dreamy and beautiful - far - land where you can just be teleported by magic.
Funny enough, a wizard actually took me to Honolulu last year and I joined him to shoot the most perfect, romantic, heartwarming sunset proposal in Hawaii.
WHEN WE MET AMBER
SHE DIDN'T KNOW THAT SHE WAS ABOUT TO RECEIVE THE MOST MEMORABLE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL IN FRONT OF HER (HIDDEN) FAMILY
She thought that we were going to shoot couple video and photos with the most beautiful setup and the breathtaking backdrops of an Hawaiian beach at sunset.
And so we did. Pono and I followed them in their romantic walk under the palm trees and we enjoyed the nice breeze while shooting them.

Then I asked her to come with me for a couple of portraits.
When Amber turned, she found her husband to be on his knees, pronouncing the sweetest, most perfect proposal I've ever heard.
I was professionally crying with my left eye.
THE WAY AMBER REPLIED:
"YES, OF COURSE... DOH!"
IS PROBABLY THE CUTEST, MOST ORIGINAL ANSWER TO A WEDDING PROPOSAL I'VE EVER HEARD
This moment was so beautifully captured in the proposal video by Pono Grace that I could watch it over and over again... like, forever.
The family joined and shared with Amber and Evan this moment of joy. They hugged, laughed and had some time together. Just before the sun set, the soon to be wife and husband took an intimate walk on the beach.
After we said goodbye, while Pono was packing, I stopped for a moment to enjoy the dusk and think about what a crazy lucky Merlin I was.
Thank you guys for that amazing time.
