Kekoa + Mckenna Hawaii Mountain Top Engagement Photos

WOW. WELL THIS WAS STRAIGHT OUT OF A DREAM. These two contacted me a WEEK in advance hoping that I had an opening to take their Engagement Photos while on the island. We immediately hopped on a call, had a chat about the process and what they were looking for and planned an epic hike to the top of a mountain for their Engagement photos within a day! Kekoa & Mckenna are visiting from Idaho, where Kekoa plays football for Boise State, how rad?! They also love hiking, adventuring, eating hawaiian shaved ice and getting tan at the beach of course!!!

They have the sweetest proposal story where Kekoa led Mckenna on an all day scavenger hunt sending her to the nail salon (while he was at a football meeting) going to spots they shared together and ending on an AMAZING hike to the top of the mountain to propose on one knee. How freaking cute is that!?!

It was only fitting that we take their Engagement Photos on the top of a mountain in Hawaii! These two hiked up the mountain in their outfits and tennis shoes, made it to the very top still looking perfect and took some STUNNING photos! Then we headed down to the beach to jump in the water and get some rad shots soaking wet. This was such a dream session and I wish everyday at work could be just like this adventurous session. We went from sweating on the top of a mountain to freezing in the water down at Kahana Bay but my heart couldn’t be happier. Bless these two on their BIG DAY to come! xx
