You can imagine my excitement when Blake called and told me that he is visiting Vail with his girlfriend Kristin, and that he is going to propose to her at the top of Vail mountain. I loved the idea of having a secret surprise proposal followed with their engagement photos to capture the unique trip he had planned for both of them. It was not hard to detect them getting of the gondola, both looking so stunningly and so in love! I followed them down the path we had agreed on in advance for best mountain views. Funny enough there were two other photographers trying to get a shot of the marmots that you see quite often during the fall and summer. That was the perfect cover up for me and I joined them viewing the wildlife. Not before long the strolling couple had reached the spot where I had left markings on the ground, letting Blake know this would be the ideal spot for a gorgeous mountain backdrop. The sun stared to set and the rays of sunlight become softer every minute. Blake got on his knees and pulled out the ring. It was a scene so beautiful, it makes me emotional every time! I thin Kristin was in denial for a few seconds before she realized what just happened. The surprise was indeed successful and Kristin of course said yes! Then we finished off the evening with their engagement photos on top of Vail mountain. I couldn’t be happier for them!
