A surprise Maui marriage proposal is generally unexpected; sure, it may be suspected, but it is generally still a surprise. Either way, it is often a pleasant shock, a joy, a delight. In the case of Devin & Amber, she was somewhat expecting a proposal next year. Devin wanted to propose while they were on Maui in mid February of this year. And, he wanted to capture photographs of it. But, how do you capture photographs of a proposal and keep it a surprise? Devin called me about a month before his scheduled arrival on Maui. We discussed options. Generally, as a photographer, hiding in the bushes to take candid pictures is a bit too creepy. I suggested, as I have done in the past, to just hire me as a photographer to take photographs of the the two on vacation. The proposal during that time would be a surprise. But, Devin thought it would be too much of a give away and she would suspect something is up. So, he came up with an idea: he would approach me, as a photographer, on the beach, just kind of taking scenic landscape pictures of the sunset, and ask if I wouldn’t mind taking a few pictures of them. It was a good idea, and it worked out well…..
