Russ knew for two months that he was going to propose to Josh on their trip to Maui, Hawaii, and I’m so glad that I was able to capture it!
Despite Josh swearing that Russ cannot keep a secret, the proposal was a total surprise. Russ made the ring box, including some of Josh’s favorite things in it (Harry Potter and Pokemon!), and they’re going to pick out rings together during their trip here.
We met veryyy early for this photo session (for sunrise at 6 am!), and we had the beach completely to ourselves. By the time we were leaving, people were beginning to arrive – sunrise is always the best time for an elopement or photo session if privacy is important to you!
Russ and Josh had coordinated outfits with leis and Hawaiian Pokemon shirts (I didn’t even know shirts like this existed, and now I need one for my husband!). They had so much energy and excitement during their photo session, you would never have known it was 6:00 in the morning!
Josh & Russ – congratulations to you both, I am so happy and excited for you!
