Vacationing in Hawaii ensures memories that will be cherished for a lifetime. Being proposed to while vacationing in Hawaii ensures a once in a lifetime unforgettable experience.

When Freda approached our desk at Marriott’s Vacation Club in Ko Olina her excitement was bubbling over. Her daughter was getting engaged and it was a secret she had been holding onto for well over a month. Her daughter, Melissa, approached the desk shortly after wanting to book a photography session with a rouse developed by her mom that it was going to be a family photo session with her mom, dad, and boyfriend Chris.

The photo session began on property.  Like most shoots, we took advantage of the property’s benches with views, year round blooming flowers, and a stage for the perfect twirl and dip.

Melissa and Chris enjoying their “family photo shoot”.

Chris dancing away his jitters.

Once we reached the sand Chris knew his moment near. After a quick hang loose photo as the signal to propose, Chris dropped to one knee professing his love, and as waves crashed and tears of joy fell he asked Melissa to spend eternity with him.  Without hesitation Melissa said, “Yes!’
