Proposal | Lost Gulch Overlook Trail | Winter
Boulder Proposal with a Mountain Background
Whenever we have seen a couple guys getting out of a car dressed up in similar attire we get nervous. For Benjamin and Lauren this meant someone was going to bring havoc to the original proposal plan. They were running a bit late and the guys were part of a bridal party. We did not see anyone in a dress but knowing what was about to happen we tried to intervene. The groom was not sympathetic despite his bride not even being there yet so knowing that the bridal party would either be making noise, in the background, or in the exact spot we went with our alternate spot. We are always looking for new places and this particular one is one a little harder to find but a little more secluded. We had never used it before but sent over plans for both locations so he was well studied up on both. While you may think we can just follow you around that is a little difficult as we need to keep our distance and on most terrain we would need to be feet from you which gets a little awkward and dampens the emotion. All that to say we need to plan things out down to the exact spot / precise angle so that as in this proposal she never sees the camera pointed in her direction. As you might notice it was a little windy out along the mountains. It was such that it definitely was shaking the trees and blowing the hair. Thankfully, it did not blow the ring out of the box or blow someone over. While that may seem far fetched it actually could happen with wind gusts getting up to 90 mph in certain parts of the mountains.
You can see more proposals here and read about how we do proposals on our engagement proposals page. If you like what you see here and are considering using this location here are some of the other shoots we have done at Flagstaff Mountain. One thing to note is this is what we call the ‘alternate spot’ down a side trail.
