ALONDA + ALAN | BIG ISLAND SURPRISE PROPOSAL
Alonda + Alan were able to visit the Big Island this past April. We were so thankful we got to adventure with these two while they were in Hawaii. While we didn’t capture their elopement, we did capture a really special moment in their lives!
We met Alonda and Alan around 3pm to start our adventure session. As an elopement photographer, we’re continuously looking for ways for couples to totally immerse themselves in nature and not have to worry about any other people around. Therefore, with these two, we went on an additional adventure that we hiked to so that not many people would be there. That’s what I love about the Big Island! There are so many unique adventures to go on in order to find a location that is away from all of the crowds.
We spent some time on the top of the mountains that overlooked the ocean, and it was incredibly stunning. While Alonda + Alan were sitting down, Ryan + I were capturing some unique shots and different angles of the landscape that surrounded them. All of sudden, Alan pulls out a ring from his pocket, drops to his knees, and asks Alonda to marry him!
Alan never told Ryan or me that he was going to propose! Thankfully, we were totally prepared anyway and just started snapping away to make sure we captured all of the emotion during this moment. It was so incredibly special and we feel so lucky to have captured such a special moment during their time in Hawaii.
