I had just written a blog post about why I think it is important to have someone photograph your proposal. It is such a magical moment that is consumed with raw emotion and I truly believe it deserves to be documented!!

It’s funny how things work out… The day after I posted my thoughts on proposal photography, I received an email from Tyler requesting just that! He had plans to propose to his girlfriend, Brittany and wanted to have the moment photographed. I was SO excited to get his email.. Just the thought of shooting a proposal makes me giddy! While I truly love everything about wedding photography and being able to document such a special occasion for my clients… There is nothing quite like shooting a proposal. I have only done a handful of these and each time I love them more and more! It is not a thought out moment for the one being proposed to. They haven’t thought ahead of what their reaction and expressions will be. Sure, they can imagine that they would say yes and be excited, but there is no rehearsing or daydreaming that can compare to that one single moment. The moment the question is asked it, the response is raw wave of emotion and I absolutely love it!

There is one proposal that has always stuck out and that is Austin and Mckenna! Austin had contacted me shortly before he and Mckenna had a road trip out to Colorado planned. He was going to propose to her during their stay at Della Terra Mountain Chateau. What an absolutely breathtaking location!!! Mckenna was in tears and the joy on her face was incredible! Then Austin pointed over to me to show Mckenna that the whole thing had been photographed and her expression summed up why I love photographing people during the most joyous moments of their lives!
