While going for a dive in the ocean, Leiha'aheo felt something nudge her from behind. When she turned around, she saw the nudge had come from a very embarrassed snorkeler: Maika.
They would meet two more times before finally getting introduced to one another, but the now-engaged Hawaiian natives fully acknowledge the water as the basis of their lives becoming one.
So it makes perfect sense that they would shoot their engagement photos not just by the water, but in it.
"It would only seem appropriate to capture and celebrate the foundation of our relationship with these underwater images," said Leiha'aheo.
Photos were taken by Love Water Photography who reached out to the couple on Instagram.
