There’s nothing like having a snowy winter wonderland as the perfect backdrop to your surprise proposal! The holiday season in the mountains is probably one of my favorite seasons (aside from the summer) because that means engagement season! Surprise proposals are something I will always enjoy. For one, who doesn’t love keeping a secret like this?! And two, I get to help partners plan one of the best days of their lives. To top it off, I get the honor of capturing the raw excitement as they both realize they get to spend the rest of their lives with one another. On this particular day, I woke up to your typical Colorado winter morning- sunny yet snowy. As luck has it, a full-on blizzard rolled in as I showed up to tuck behind a tree to wait for Tanner and Ashley to arrive at our spot. Obviously it was a little cold, but it sure made for some magical photos for their proposal!
I love getting the opportunity to capture proposals because it’s such a special moment to witness and not everyone chooses to have a photographer present. If you’re on the fence about photographing your surprise proposal, I highly recommend it. The images are something you’ll have forever, to be able to look back on another piece of your love story. Doing this also gives you and your photographer another opportunity to get to know each other and get comfortable. This makes your engagement session and your wedding day a walk in the park!
We pulled it off! It’s always a win when your proposal goes as planned. Everything about this day was so dreamy. The little wooden bridge along with the snow made for the cutest storybook vibes, and Ashley was so surprised. Tanner outdid himself with the ring too. I can’t wait to show you their engagement session and wedding gallery!
