Oahu Proposal Photographer l Makapu’u Lighthouse

Looking to pop the question on Oahu during your vacation?

Here are some tips to help pull off an awesome, stunning and fantastic proposal that your fiance will never forget

Michael proposed to Maddy at the Lighthouse at the edge of the cliffside at Makapu’u Lighthouse Trail located on the island of Oahu at sunset. Micheal also planned a sunrise photoshoot for them the next day so Maddy could get done up and ready. The Haku (flower crown) was provided by @mealohamade and can be ordered through me or directly through the florist via Instagram.

If you would like to plan your proposal at the lighthouse ay Makapu’u you will need special written permission from the Hawaii Coast Guard. Feel free to ask me directly to get their contact information. I also got special permission to fly my drone at the lighthouse. With a bit of planning, you can make a once-in-lifetime experience that is affordable and is truly spectacular.
