BY ADVENTURE ELOPEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER TEAM KELSI & PATRICK
Scroll down to see how we captured the sweetest surprise proposal on the North Shore of Oahu! Our sessions are filled with a lot of playing. We’ll have you skip down the beach, wrestle, play rock paper scissors, and tickle one another. So, it’s pretty easy to slip a prompt in there that will have you turning around - to find your partner down on one knee, a stunning ring in hand. Since our sessions are more about capturing candids, and it was easy to direct these two into position so both Patrick and I could capture the moment at the same time. As per our plan (discussed secretly weeks before the session), I was slyly handed the ring box to hold onto at the beginning of the session. After we’d captured plenty of candids, I quickly handed the box to the soon to be groom (Patrick was taking solo portraits of the bride to distract her). I got into position with my camera so we could capture multiple angles, and we had Connie turn around. The next few moments had both myself and Patrick with tears in our eyes.
