When Fernando reached out to us about proposing to his girlfriend in Oahu, he was so sure of the plan. In fact, he had a better idea of what the day would look like than any other person we have helped plan surprise engagements for! When he laid out his plans, we were immediately so excited to fly over from Maui to be there to capture both photo and video coverage of the big moment! So many of their friends were in town to celebrate with them in a rented estate on the north shore, and Fernando even made a cute video of those who couldn’t be there to congratulate them!
The big day arrived…and so did a torrential downpour that wouldn’t leave us alone! We even switched locations, but the storm followed. After a few minutes of crazy rain, Fernando called to say rain or no rain, the time had come! Sure, we were soaked through, but we couldn’t wait to capture this special moment for them.
Watch the full video below to see all of the excitement + love!!
I’m so glad Fernando invited us to preserve his proposal to the love of his life! While things didn’t go exactly as he had perfectly planned, they were beautiful nonetheless. And we loved turning those moments into photos and videos they can cherish forever. Congratulations, you two!
