Hawaii Engagement Photographer | Leah + Dave’s Sunrise Beach Engagement Session

How many of you guys are morning people?!?


Cause let me tell you, I am NOT one of them!!!

BUT, sunrise sessions, especially on certain parts of the island of Oahu, makes the 5am wakeup call all worth it!!!

I was so excited to meet Leah and Dave this beautiful morning in December! They were in town finalizing all of their wedding details for January, which made it the PERFECT time for an engagement session!

We chose one my favorite beaches on the island, Makapuu Beach, for the way the sunrises right by the Lighthouse, the white sand, black lava rock, and incredibly blue water!

Leah and Dave are just so in love! A sunrise engagement session was perfect seeing how Dave proposed to the love of his life!

Dave proposed during a sunrise hike in Phu Chi Fa, Thailand as we stood on the mountain top overlooking Laos. He had been carrying the ring in his pocket for a few days now and was just waiting for the right moment.  It was scary because he had to take the ring out of a box, in a pouch, in his pocket without me noticing and without it falling down the cliff. Obviously…He did great!

I would say he did pretty amazing too!!!
