Hi!

I'm glad you're here!

Alex & Laura's (Surprise!) Pololu Valley Engagement

Alex & Laura's (Surprise!) Pololu Valley Engagement

Alex & Laura came to the Big Island for a romantic, adventurous getaway. When Alex reached out to me from Tennessee about an engagement session I was so thrilled… when he told me it was going to be a surprise engagement session, I was even more thrilled! And nervous. This is only my second surprise engagement session, and if you read my blog post on Ricardo & Catalina’s engagement, you may remember that I mentioned that I’m the worst liar. Ever.

We started the day bright (or shall I say, dark) and early at Pololu Valley at sunrise. Alex told Laura that it was a simple couples session and an adventure. Laura dressed in an insanely elegant dress and her hiking Nike running shoes! (how cute is that?!)

In all honesty, I was a little worried about all the mud that Pololu offers, especially knowing that Alex & Laura have never been there before. However, when we got there, they were totally game for ANYTHING! Laura even trekked through the mud in her dress & Nikes… and somehow still looked like a princess! Adventurous people are my kind of people!

After hiking the extremely steep trail into the valley, we were greeted with an AMAZING sunrise down on the beach where Alex & Laura played and danced and where Alex popped the question! We could not contain our excitement for them and were so blessed to have been able to not only photograph this special occasion, but also gotten to know these two beautiful (inside and outside) people.
