I hope you are ready for a gorgeous engagement session in Maui!palauea beach

Kelli and Adam flew in for a work conference from Washington, and as they are planning a Maui wedding for late next year, decided that they would scope out some locations and get their engagement photos done while they are here!!engagement session in maui

Blending a family is hard and that’s what these two hard working parents are doing! It was a nice getaway as between them they have 8 children!

We arrived at Palauea Beach and I knew that Kelli was having a rough day with venue shopping! I told her not to worry and that her engagement session was going to be awesome!

Before you know it, the stress of that day was gone, and Kelli’s beautiful smile had returned! I seriously could have photographed them all day!sunset beach engagement

Kelli and Adam didn’t need much guidance from me, as their love really took over! I felt like I was jut capturing them in their element! We had the most beautiful sunset Maui could have provided us, with black lava rocks to sit on!black lava rocks in mauimaui engagement photographermaui engagement session

For the final photos, I had Adam come to me. I told him for this last shot, I wanted him to whisper in her ear why he chose her. Why he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

While I have no idea what he told her, I could see on her face it was perfect! I reminded her that with this next year, wedding planning will get stressful. But I wanted her to remember these last few images and what Adam told her, and let that get her through the rough times always!maui wedding photographer

I am so excited to document their wedding in Maui next year! Check out more of their beautiful images below!maui engagement
