Outrigger Kona engagement, Liza & Jon

John and Liza met in California 5 years ago, Liza had just moved from the east coast and was starting college. She noticed John in one of her classes but never spoke to him, a week later she started a new job at a restaurant and he happened to already work there. After a year of inseparable friendship and getting him to skip his last class of the day to hangout with her, they started dating. Their first date he took her to the symphony. This past August her surprised her with tickets to Hawaii for her birthday, since she had never been to Hawaii; this was going to be an unforgettable trip. They’ve known since their first year of dating that they wanted to get married, yet were never in a rush. Good things come to those who wait, so they say. John and Liza agree that their engagement came at the perfect time in their lives and they couldn’t be happier. John is Liza’s best friend and truly her soul mate. He proposed after dinner by the ocean, at the Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa it was quiet and intimate just as she had always imagined. They laughed and cried, and of coarse she loved her ring! Liza says she is so thankful for John’s love and friendship. Their wedding date is August 29, 2015 in Rhode Island. They’re counting down to their next adventure!Kona, Sheraton, Engagement, Hawaii, Big Island

Shawn and Dani, engagement, old Kona Airport, Big Island of Hawaii

Shawn and Dani were a fun couple to photograph, I had a great time at the beach with them. Instantly I felt like I were hanging out with two good friends. To those who already know Shawn, you likely already know he’s a pretty fun-loving guy. He definitely has a humorous side to his personality and additionally he’s absolutely in love with his stunning fiancé Dani. Dani’s incredibly sweet, and as you can see a gorgeous blonde beauty. As a couple together, there’s a lot of chemistry and they are a perfect match for each other.

For Shawn and Dani’s engagement session, we decided on Old Kona Airport State Park. While out on the couple’s session, we were all laughing nearly the entire time. Especially because of Shawn’s welcoming and inviting sense of humor. Thanks Shawn for keeping the photographer laughing, and for keeping Dani smiling. Shawn and Dani were down for just about anything like walking through the long grass and mesquite trees behind the beach area and hiking and climbing all over the lava rock that Big Island is known for. As always, we had a great time and captured a variety of photo styles and unique engagement pictures.

Shawn actually proposed to Dani the day before our session, at Kulaniapia Falls, a private waterfall located on the grounds of the Inn at Kulaniapia Falls, which includes 22 lush, tropical acres with waterfalls, Bamboo Garden, Hiking Trails and vistas of unrivaled pristine beauty. Kulaniapia Falls is just north of Hilo, Hawaii, on the Hamakua Coast.  Dani though Shawn was just setting his camera up for a picture, but as she approached, he got down on one knee, held out his hand which was holding a ring box and popped the question! Dani said yes before even looking a the ring…..and the ring is amazing, the diamond has been in Shawn’s family since the 1920’s, it belonged to his great great aunt!
