Engagement Shoot: King

About the Couple

Bobby and Alexis are actually good friends of mine, and it has been wonderful watching them grow together. The two met freshman year of high school have been a couple for almost eight years since!

Their favorite activities to do together include watching movies, swimming, and going on as many adventures as possible. They also consider themselves foodies and love to try new cuisines. 

How He Asked

Bobby got down on one knee in May of 2019, in the midst of a gorgeous sunset on a beach in Ko’olina Oahu, Hawaii. 

(Side note: I actually knew about this plan before Alexis and thought I had accidentally spoiled it about two months prior, but found out later that I hadn’t at all and she was really surprised – phew!)

Advice from the Kings

“Some ‘haters’ have told us that high school relationships never last, because each person in the relationship is unable to form their own values, beliefs, and ideals. We have not found that to be the case, though. Luckily, we have been able to grow up together, as a couple, and separately, as individuals.”

“All in all, our advice to couples in those questionable relationships, like being high school sweethearts, is to ignore the negative comments. Focus on your own relationship and do what you can to ensure that you’re growing both as individual people and as a couple. Appreciate the fact that you have found your soulmate; you don’t need validation from anyone else, because your love is perfect as is.”
