Ashley + Billy – Engagement Kaena Point Oahu 9/10/2014
Kaena Point is on the far west side of Oahu, at the end of the road. It is a breathtaking location and definitely suitable for proposing marriage.
When Billy called me and told me his plan to propose to Ashley at Kaena Point, I got really excited and nervous. I mean, how was he going to explain me being there to Ashley? What if the weather didn’t cooperate? Will everything go as planned? Turns out I didn’t need to worry about a thing and he did it his way with the plan of making for a picnic and couple’s photo session.
That was great. I flew over from Kauai earlier that day and scouted a couple of locations. We confirmed this spot when they were on their way up H1 from Honolulu. Just as they arrived it started to rain. A blessing! But there was no waiting, we went for it. A warm tropical rain on the beach just feels great. It passed in a few minutes for Billy to set up the the blanket and speakers to play Ashley a song he recorded for her. That was the first surprise. Then they got up and walked a few feet away and he got down on one knee and proposed. Ashley was surprised and caught up in the moment with Billy. Their beautiful moment followed by a beautiful sunset.
The things we do because we love another person make life worth living.
