Oahu Engagment Photographer - Nick & Emily

Nick and Emily have been good friends of mine for the last 5 years. They both planned a vacation trip out to Hawaii this month and Nick called me ahead of time to plan the proposal.

He wanted to have the Ko’olau Mountain Range as the backdrop so we decided to do it at Kualoa Regional Park, located across from Kualoa Ranch. We told Emily this was a shoot to help market my business (I don’t think she fully fell for it, but I also don’t think she knew the proposal was part of the plan).

Once we arrived, Nick and I came up with some code words to signal that he was gonna propose. Once we gave each other the que, it was all golden from there.

Photographing this experience kinda felt like I was in a movie. Seeing two of my friends truly happy together is a pretty cool thing and I’m so stoked for both of them. Congrats to the homies Nick and Em. Thanks for being amazing friends and always being down to have a fun time. I was stoked to see you out here this past week and I wish you two the best!
