Proposal | Forest Canyon Overlook | RMNP
Late Fall RMNP Estes Park Proposal
We love proposal photography. Preetham and Jana were an example of why we love it as when you see things go down you cannot help you relive the moment, the joy, and the emotion. It makes you just want to run up and give them a big hug yet you need to hold yourself back to take the photos. We were up in Rocky Mountain National Park at the Forest Canyon Overlook. It was late in the fall season and at the end of the shoot Trail Ridge road was actually being shut down due to a storm rolling through the mountains. Our take is that it will likely not open till the early summer. We love the views all around you but it is one of those more limiting places to shoot due to weather and the timing.
As the proposal went down the angle was slightly off needing for a movement to a different angle. Ironically another photographer saw what was happening and started snapping away more wide angle photos. We got things and didn’t miss a beat as we saw things playing out that way and can hop around on rocks like a mountain goat. They were up from Colorado Springs making a couple day trip to Estes Park. While he was being particular about clothing it didn’t tip her off to the impending proposal. Congratulations to you both – we loved getting to capture the moment you got engaged!
You can see more proposals here and read about how we do proposals on our engagement proposals page. A couple notes on proposals in Estes Park. In general, you will get the least amount of people and the best views in Rocky Mountain National Park. One thing to keep in mind however is that hiking or areas around animals are where you will come across the most people. We do have some other locations planned out but likely they will depend on the time of year and what you envision. If you like what you see here and are considering using Rocky Mountain National Park here are some of the other shoots we have done at RMNP.
