Ski Resort Snowboarding Proposal

Ski Resort Snowboarding Proposal aon a Mountaintop

From the photographer, Meredith Jane Photography: It was your typical day at Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort. Freezing cold temperatures, skiers and snowboarders bustling about and the fireplace roaring for those that are trying to gain a second of warmth. We headed up the mountain, cozy in the gondola, and friends laughed and cracked a few beers to get the day going. Even those in the group that weren’t skiing decided to hop on the gondola for a “group photo” at the top. I claimed you only get views like this once in a lifetime and it was necessary to bring my camera along for the ride. We all knew Joelle’s life was about to change, but we all acted as normal as humanly possible. We started with that group photo and then quickly peeled away to those that, Joelle didn’t realize yet, were going to be part of her new family. As they pulled away Alex dropped to one knee and Joelle tried to pull him up. Apparently he’d “tied his shoes” in front of her a few too many times! But when she realized what was in his hand, her face was priceless…The first thing Joelle did after saying “yes” and giving Alex a huge kiss was ask, “Do my parents know?” We all pretended to play dumb as we quickly made our way down the mountain for a champagne toast.. where her parents were waiting. Alex made a toast and we all shared our videos and pictures of the excitement that that just unfolded (millennial generation style). After everything winded down we went on one last run to cap off the day.

A Surprise Proposal in the Park

Stephanie & Sean  |  October 30th  |  Denver, Colorado

From the photographer, Amy Caroline:  When Sean contacted me and let me know that he wanted to propose to Stephanie here in Denver, and that he wanted me to photograph it, I was over the moon. The two of them are from Texas, but have family they were visiting in Denver.  We landed on Cheesman Park in downtown Denver as the backdrop for this big event. With its big columns, rose gardens and rolling green hills, it’s the perfect Denver park to pop the question.

 Sean was taking Steph out on a fancy dinner date, and just told her he was taking her on a walk through one of Denver’s city landmark parks beforehand. They strolled through the park; Steph oblivious to what was coming next.

 Sean had them sit down on a park bench, and read through posts from his journal. In it, he had written so many special moments that he and Steph had shared, the laughs, the tears, and mostly the joys they had had in their dating years. Lastly leading her to the page where he talked about how he knew he had wanted to marry her from the very beginning of their dating lives. He took her hand and led her to the next spot where he dropped down on one knee, officially asking her to be his forever. Steph was still so surprised, overjoyed, and shocked. With absolute joy and tears she said yes!

A Secret New Year’s Eve Proposal

We LOVE it when the guys think ahead and have a photographer standing by to capture the moment they proposes.  Hint, hint!

From the photographer, Sean Lara Photography:
A young gentleman by the name of Chris called me at around 4pm on New Years Eve asking me if I could help him with a very important moment in his life. He sounded nervous on the phone and was stumbling his words – I knew it was something big. He was planning on proposing to his girlfriend, Amanda, in Old Town, Fort Collins. He was originally planning on waiting a few more weeks, but his excitement prevented him from holding off any longer, hence the last-minute phone call. He asked if I could discreetly capture him proposing to his girlfriend in Old Town Square. I agreed, and we came up with a plan. The idea was for him to take her around town before dinner, and I would come up to them, pretending to be a reporter doing a photo-story on couples. Around 8pm, I patiently waited downtown to find the couple and execute the plan. Twenty minutes passed after we agreed on meeting, and I was getting nervous that something wasn’t going to plan, but sure enough Chris and Amanda came out from an alleyway, and I approached them with our scheme in tact. I asked Amanda if I could take a couple photos of the two of them, as “the newspaper” was doing a story on couples integrating in the newly re-designed Square. I positioned Chris slightly behind her, as he pulled out the ring from his coat pocket. I then asked if I could grab a more “candid” shot, and told Chris to do something romantic. I took a step back, and let Chris take control. With my fingers half-frozen from the cold Colorado weather, I waited for the big moment and sure enough, he got down on one knee and popped the question. I’m happy to say of course, she said yes, and I’m also happy to say that she had absolutely no idea he was planning to propose, so the genuine reaction made it all the better!
