It truly was a surprise proposal like no other! Spencer and Carly were visiting from New York for a ski vacation in Vail with a group of friends. Because Vail is a special place for both of them, Spencer had decided this would be the trip he wanted to propose to her. He had the entire day planned out and knew exactly when and where it was going to happen. We picked the most gorgeous spot for enormous mountain backdrops. It just could not have been better. So that day took the ski lift up to the spot we had agreed on and waited for them playing tourist again. It’s not too obvious when you are in Vail and you are pretending to take pictures of the mountains. Shortly after Carly and Spencer came skiing along. Fast forward he took her out to the edge of the ski hill take some selfies with her. Those two have way too much fun! Carly noticed me with my camera and asked if I could get a picture of them with her cell phone. I said “Sure.” and thought to myself “you have no idea what’s about to happen to you!”, hahaha. Quickly their moment became more intimate. He laid his arm around her, hugged her tight and then got on his knees and pulled out the ring. It is safe to say Carly freaked out, joyfully of course! The look on her face was priceless. I am starting to think this may be my favorite moments in photography! After the successful surprise proposal we continued taking pictures on the slopes and then went into Vail Village for an engagement session without helmet hair.
