Should you hire a proposal photographer?

It’s one of the most important questions and moments in your life. We can promise you that you will not regret having it photographed. More than that, we can help with the logistics of it all and give you some tips on how to make it go as smooth as possible. With over 15 years of wedding photography experience, we won’t let you down.

Planning Tips for Proposing

Finding the perfect spot is the hardest step. These tips will help you chose a proposal location that is meaningful but also practical.

  1. The Scenery
    Think big picture! Our backdrops in Colorado are as expansive as they get so lets use that to our advantage. We start wide and set the scene and then move in close for the raw emotion. We can help finding scenery whether you are looking for an adventure or something chill.
  2. Adventure or Relaxed
    While dogsledding, skiing or summiting a mountain might be your forte, it doesn’t mean it’s your partners. Let’s figure out if it is going to make them uncomfortable before we set out on an adventure proposal.
  3. Intimate or Involved
    One question to answer before hand is if you want to keep the moment intimate or involve family or friends. We can help ask questions that might be able to help you with the decision on whether to keep it just to you two, or have others join.
  4. Timing & Travel
    If you are on a trip or vacation, we usually suggest doing it sooner rather than later. It helps alleviate your anxiety and be able to enjoy the later part. With that said, keeping a good buffer between your travels and the proposal is key. A delayed flight or being stuck in traffic is one of the worst feelings to have heading in to a proposal.

Summer Proposal Ideas

Summertime in Summit County is just as great as the winter. Between going for a 4×4 adventure or getting on the water, the summer proposal options in Frisco, Breckenridge or Vail are endless.

Propose… Bubbly… Photos

We suggest popping the question, having a glass of champagne or rose, and then continuing the session with a few portraits. We’re not in a rush, so take a moment to celebrate, wipe away the happy tears and then we’ll finish the session with some fun photos of you two and the beautiful Colorado landscapes.

Hire Local

Living in Silverthorne, we know the ins and outs of Summit County and we can help work through all the mountain town quirks. We know when the light is best and how to pivot when the weather isn’t cooperating. We don’t have to fight I-70 traffic or Eisenhower Tunnel closures and you can rely on us being in the right spot when the time comes.

Awesome! Let’s Plan This Thing!
