Eric should have no problem remembering the date on which he asked Emily to be his wife – it was during his birthday trip to Maui! Yay! So many things to celebrate with this adorable California pair. He was so cute about wanting to keep it a secret from his beloved so he worked, behind the scenes, with our fabulous staff photographer, Jenny, to plan the right place and time to pop the question. This stunning bride-to-be was completely caught off guard and couldn’t help the tears that fell as she blissfully accepted the proposal. Dropping to one knee on the cliffs above the bay, as the waves met the lava rock laden shore, it was a beautiful, dramatic, and romantic moment these two will not soon be forgetting. Emily and Eric, we could not be happier for you and we have no doubt that these last four years are the incredible foundation for a beautiful life ahead. Thank you so much for allowing the Karma Hill Photography team to be a part of your Maui Surprise Proposal!!! Congratulations,
When Mollie got ready for dinner one night while on vacation, little did she know that it would be the night to change her life forever. Grant had a surprise up his sleeve. With the help of the staff at the Four Seasons Wailea, a magical evening had been planned and we had been invited to capture the precious moment. After a knock came at the door, a server escorted the gorgeous couple down to the terrace where they were shown to a private dining table reserved specially for them. They were encouraged to relax on the beach with a glass of champagne while final preparations were made on the meal. With the sun sinking towards the sea, Grant sank to one knee and forever changed the course of Mollie’s life. In case you’re wondering, she said ‘Yes!’ :o)The rest of the evening was a bevy of romance and excitement as our newly engaged love birds celebrated with a private meal to knock your socks off. We can’t thank the Four Seasons, or Grant and Mollie, enough for allowing us the honor of ca
Growing up with a father who’s from Maui, Ryan has wonderful memories of landmark location Mama’s Fish House. Those memories have now been increased by ten fold because the love of his life, Natalie, agreed to be his wife on the sandy shore. Devising the perfect plan, Ryan asked staff photographer Sasha to wait in hiding, capturing the precious moment in secret. Then, once his beaming future wife accepted, she learned that they had a Maui Engagement Portrait to enjoy as well. Guiding these two love birds, and soon-to-be parents, to look cozy together was as easy as the North shore breeze. The love and radiating happiness hung in the air along side the swaying palms and they naturally gravitated towards one another. Surprise proposal, engagement portraits, maternity portraits, and dinner at one of the best restaurants on island? Not a bad plan, Ryan, not bad at all. Well done! Natalie and Ryan, we are so happy for you both, and your future bundle of joy. We can’t wait to welcome you ba
We met Maria & Seth at Ironwoods Beach last week and boy was she in for a surprise! She thought she was taking Maui maternity portraits but her boyfriend Seth had something up his sleeve. During the photo session he got down on one knee and asked Maria to be his wife! It was such a sweet moment and of course she said YES! This turned the maternity session into an engagement session as well! These two (3 actually) have lots to celebrate! Congratulations Maria & Seth and thank you so much for letting us be a part of it!Maui Photographer: Karma of Karma Hill PhotographyLocation: Ironwoods BeachTime of Day: SunsetCheck out our last surprise proposal portrait with Zach & Melissa!
We are so lucky that we get to photograph and be a part of some of the most memorable moments in people’s lives.
Tanner contacted Karma Hill Photography looking for someone to capture a very special moment in his life! He was planning a surprise proposal to his girlfriend Sarah. He had it all planned out! He would get her to the beach and take her on a romantic walk in the sand. Ajja was there taking pictures of the landscape and ocean as Tanner dropped to one knee. She would capture the whole proposal from afar unbeknownst to Sarah! The moment was so special as Sarah seemed to not have a clue! Her head dropped to her hands and of course said ‘Yes’ as Tanner put on her ring. After the proposal staff photographer Ajja introduced herself to the happy couple and they began with their engagement session. What a perfect way to propose and remember the special moment! Nice work Tanner! We wish you two the very best and thank you for choosing Karma Hill Photography.Photographer: Ajja of Karma Hill PhotographyLocation: Mama’s Fish House BeachTime of Day: MorningCheck out our last surprise proposal with
When Teresa contacted us about a family portrait we knew we had to make it happen! She mentioned that she and her brother wanted to surprise their parents with a family portrait session. They couldn’t even remember the last time they had family portraits taken. We made some calls and moved some things around and made this sweet surprise happen for them. Our staff photographer Mike met them at Ironwoods beach for sunset. It was quite a windy day and at one point it rained very hard on them. That wasn’t going to stop them from getting gorgeous pictures though! Thank you Yanchak Family for being such troopers and for choosing Karma Hill Photography. You were an absolute pleasure to work with!Photographer: Mike of Karma Hill PhotographyLocation: IronwoodsTime of Day: SunsetCheck out our last Maui family portrait with the Ashenbrener Family!
