Steve & Tatiana - Big Island surprise proposal

I was so excited to help Steve when he called me up and wanted to plan a surprise proposal to Tatiana on their first night in Hawaii. I don't know if he was more nervous, or if I was! I hid myself in a giant naupaka bush and waited for them to walk down the beach trail. It was a perfect night, with the sun just beginning to set and long shadows starting to fall.

I wish you every happiness! #hawaiibeachphotography #bigislandengagementphot
