What’s more fun than photographing people in beautiful places? How about photographing moment of a lifetime?! When Greg reached out to me about taking photos of him and his girlfriend during their visit to Mammoth Lakes, I was stoked to share my home with them. Then Greg let me know he was planning on proposing during the Session and my stoke levels were through the roof. Together we made a plan for when and where he should pop the question along with a secret queue from me to let him know I was ready.

The day before, my boyfriend (Lucas) and I went to the proposal location and scouted out the best possible spot for us to be. Then Lucas and I agreed he should be off in the distance taking photos with the telephoto lens. He found his secret spot and then we were ready! Sunrise the next day came quickly—Greg and Kaitlynn met us in the parking lot and we got to shooting!

Right before sunrise we got to the perfect location and I gave Greg the signal. The rest is history.

The two of them were so giddy and excited. Watching Gregs quiet nerves settle right at the moment he dropped to one knee gave me goosebumps. And of course, watching Kaitlynn’s face realize what was happening brought tears to my eyes as I snapped away trying to not get in the way of the moment unfolding before me. Lucas was in the back taking photos and really beautifully captured the moment!
