Romantic Clocktower Night Proposal
The Clocktower is one of those ideal places to propose in downtown Denver. For Jarret and Ashley this was on a surprise trip to Denver. Colorado was the place of their first vacation together so it has some special meaning. They got in and were staying in a hotel downtown. It was just down the street from the Clocktower. From getting a little of the backstory in what we call the post proposal couples debrief there was something about parents coming. There was also a modeling session in the hotel where he took some care on what she was going to wear tonight. Overall she found is sweet rather than odd.
They made their way through the mobs of people that were downtown for a lighting parade festival. The Clocktower was right on the edge of the path so it was surrounded by people. There were also others on the below floors for lighting festival parties. This made things a little unique since normally you are all alone outside of perhaps a staff member escorting you up. Ironically there was a little boy riding up to the 17th floor with them looking for a coat rack. Thankfully he didn’t follow them up to the 18th floor where there would be this awkward moment. We were tucked away behind a curtain in the corner.
We think it might have been a little bit of a new location and potential nervousness but the angles for the proposal were backwards from what we mapped out. While it isn’t a big deal in the sense that we still could get the moment in the photos we missed the emotion. In the moment you need to make the call on in you move. If we did we would have distracted her from the key proposal moment and we might have missed him getting down on one knee.
In the future our take will be to put a remote camera in the corner behind the curtain and follow them into the room from the other side. Nonetheless she was an emotional gitty woman at the whole thing. It is crazy beautiful, romantic, and unique of a place to propose. Afterward they sat down and had some champagne and then we took some photos in other places of the Clocktower.
