First off, you know people trust and believe in your craft when they book you thousands miles away…not seeing you in person. That was the case of this surprise Hanging Lake proposal. Ben called me couple months before their day, asking about my proposal collections. The way he spoke about Gabby and their beautiful connection and love he stole my heart! I knew this amazing proposal shoot will be so special. Glenwood Springs, CO and its charm, the Hanging Lake itself, so magical. We met at a Hanging Lake at 6:30 am and hiked up 2.8 mile fascinating place to experience, high in the mountains, at the end of a hike along Deadhorse Creek and through rocky canyons. –led only by the light…and the thought of surprise proposal…Ben and Gabby flew in from Louisiana the night before! We had the whole trail to ourselves…and only hummingbirds and powerful waterfall….and when we arrived just before dawn, I knew that this particular proposal would be timeless. The powerful waterfall, magical lake reflections…They held each other so close surrounded by Colorado Columbines, stunning sunlight peaking behind the Rocky Mountains, and these two beautiful souls…
How timeless it is to get to photograph hiking proposals!!!
