I arrived an hour early to make sure I had the entire area covered. Heart pounding, I saw them pull up in their car. As they made their way to the hill, I started the treck up and they followed. Liam knew who I was and that I’d be wearing a yellow backpack, so as they followed me, Addie had no idea I was actually there for her proposal! As we made our way to the top of Point Dume, I let them pass me to get to the perfect spot for Liam to drop to one knee. MY WORD, the anticipation was killing me!! It takes one split second to capture this moment, and I didn’t want to miss it.
FREAKING PUMPED ABOUT THIS 😭😍
I had Colt write out his proposal story so y'all can get all of the lovey-dovey, sweet-surprising vibes we got when this all went down.
"It was a plan that had been set in motion a few weeks in advance. We would be in Colorado with my sister-in-law who just so happens to be a wedding photographer, what are the odds right? So we went out on a morning hike on Friday to the Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado. After taking Clay and Rachel's pictures as a cover up, Rach asked if Em and I wanted some pictures together. My response was, 'Yeah!' but Em's was, 'Maybe later.' She hadn't been feeling well that morning so after anxiously walking barely five minutes, Rach offers again and Em begrudgingly accepts.
So at the foot of the mountain I got down on one knee as Rachel captured every sweet moment. Emily truly did not see it coming. Her first words when I went to one knee were, 'What are you doing?' But once she figured it out both of our eyes welled up with tears. I told her how much she meant to me and how I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. After asking for her hand in marriage she, without hesitation, said 'Yes!'. I've never seen so much joy in a person's eyes as I slid the ring onto her finger and the only day that will top it is the day we can finally say 'I Do'.
these two cuties invited me and my little family out to their lake home in eustis, nebraska on a late september weekend. needless to say we (Clay, I and the kids) traveled out to wide open country, so I could take their engagements. we loved seeing the rolling hills of rural nebraska. I just have to say thank you to weston and julia and your families for hosting us! YOU'RE THE BEST!
nothing is better than love and making relationships that last. honestly, that's all this "job" is about.
Okay, can I just take a moment and talk about how F U N these two are?! Garrett is hilarious, goofy and most definitely silly. Jess lights up and you can tell that he is her world.
Together they strolled the green pastures, high mountains and backroads of Breckenridge, Colorado.
We decided to shoot in Breckenridge, as both Garrett and Jess would go to this small mountain town for family vacations as children. Something about this place brings both of them peace and happiness.
I hope y'all enjoy this session as much as I do.
