From the photographer: Karizma Photography:
When Andrew emailed us explaining that he wanted us to be a part of a surprise proposal, we said “Yes, of course!” We love to be a part of these surprises! There is something so unbelievably special about surprise proposals and especially those that are captured with a camera. Andrew was also super easy to work with, so future gentlemen take notes. He was really clear about what he wanted, what he had planned to do, and how we were going to help him capture this memory. Not only was his planning perfect, but so was the spot! He chose such a gorgeous place and we were all in agreement when he told us he wanted to do it at the Sea to Sky Gondola. There is no need to say how much we love Sea to Sky Gondola engagements and how many of them we photographed there. Stunning views, gorgeous weather, and a super adorable moment all wrapped in one is a photographer’s dream! Catching that “wow” moment is always tough but when you do, it’s breathtaking. His fiancé, Mikaila, made everything better because she had no idea it was happening. While Mikaila stood along the railing taking in the view, we were standing behind them both with a view of our own. Andrew approached her from behind and slid down onto one knee just in time for her to turn around as he popped the question. Her expression was priceless and the look on her face was the genuine and raw emotion that we love. It was perfect and such a heartwarming day. After the question, which she obviously said yes to, we took a few more pictures of them together as we all soaked in the moment.
Married in Italy two years ago, Alessandra and Gino chose Yasmin Leonard Photography to take some fun holiday-inspired images to showcase their love. The vintage truck adorned with an evergreen wreath was the perfect prop for this romantic shoot in the Appalachian Mountains.
From Brittany: Travis and I met, of all places, in a bar. We are both quite tall and we just locked eyes across the room over everyone else’s heads, and we have been inseparable ever since. We live in Minnesota with our dog Euchre. I had seen so many beautiful pictures of Glacier National Park and had always wanted to go. When we got engaged, I was determined to have our engagement pictures taken at Glacier. Marianne Wiest Photography gave us exactly what we asked for and then some. The photoshoot was relaxed, fun and full of breathtaking mountain scenery. Our pictures came out amazing and we had such a fun vacation in Montana.
From the style team: We wanted to show off what a mountain hip, yet romantic glam wedding could look like at Piney River Ranch. We went with deep purples, greenery and creams for the perfect fall wedding. Every magical moment was captured by Kristopher Lindsay Photography. Haley Hyman with Platinum Weddings & Events designed and conducted the whole shoot. Petal & Bean created all of the beautiful florals while Laney + Joel Hall with Platypus Papers designed all of the stationery. What really brought the overall look together were the rentals, provided by Alpine Party Rentals. The bride + groom, Mary + Trask, are an actual couple tying the knot this year! Their dog, Sadie decided to join the shoot and the pictures were just beautiful! The beautiful gown and tux were provided by Dora Grace Bridal. Tessa Capaldi with Megan Cary Artistry did the hair and makeup. The collaboration of these professionals was so incredible. Seeing this look come to life was indescribable!
