“There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. …”
I think of this quote as I look over Kyra and Rodney’s beach session in Waimanalo, Hawaii!! When Kyra messaged me looking for an engagement photographer, she told me how her and Rodney met at the base gym and hit it off instantly!
She followed him to Hawaii when he moved here, and then in Kauai, which is my favorite island, he got down on one knee at sunset, and asked her to spend forever with him!
Que the tears!
So, I knew that I wanted their engagement session to be fun and romantic!!! We went to this little beach spot right off of Waimanalo Beach, and it had everything that we wanted! White sand, black lava rocks, the mountains and blue water!!!
With Rodney being a military man, it was my goal to get a smile out of him and have him loosen up! And yes, but the end of the session, with the help of some funny jokes and secret whispers in the ear, Rodney was smiling from ear to ear!
Hope you love their beautiful engagement session! I am so excited for their wedding next year!!!!
