Illiana & Marcus: A Mountaintop Engagement Session in Hawaii
Photos By Vanessa Hicks Photography

Marcus Foster, a naval officer attached to the USS Chicago stationed in Pearl Harbor, and Illiana Tidd, a former research analyst and adjunct professor at the University of Guam, met five years ago in college. Though they attended rival universities, they didn’t need to compete for each other’s hearts. Their chemistry and compatibility came naturally.
“We are both adventure addicts, and we have a deep shared passion for diving, hiking, and traveling,” Illiana says. “We are truly best friends and treasure every moment we get to spend exploring together.”
Beautifully captured at dusk by photographer and Navy veteran Vanessa Hicks, their romantic mountaintop engagement session reflects their venturesome spirits. Fittingly, the two will tie the knot next fall at Kualoa Ranch, a 4,000-acre nature reserve, working cattle ranch, and filming location (think Jurassic Park and The Hunger Games) on the windward coast of Oahu.
