Proposal | North Tenmile Creek | Frisco
A Few Pictures Before Dogsledding
Normally we would recommend against saying you are doing active things when you are about to go propose. For Sophia as you can see her dog sledding look is quite photogenic and we think Gal knew that she would dress all cute despite the activity. Dogsledding was not actually on the agenda so if you want to see some dogs you will need to look at our shoots with dogs. We love dogs and wish they could have had some in the shoot with them but as they were from Miami getting a dog to come would be a little difficult. This was not the originally scheduled location. We had planned for using Sapphire Point but as he also wanted a winter fresh snow type of day we had more challenging road conditions. It was a first that we had seen Swan Mountain road closed and we think it must have been due to the icy road causing an accident. Under normal conditions we really do not see this as a concern since we try to avoid those kind of days. One of the perks of arriving early though is that you can take some time to think on the fly and come up with a backup plan. Tenmile Creek was one of those spots we had wanted to check out at some point as it is easily findable and can get you up a bit from the highway with some smaller mountains in view. The thinking behind this day was one of those it needed to be a place where you would not be buried in the snow and with a flat line of sight we could use with the 300mm. The reality is he could have proposed almost anywhere as she was ready for getting a ring and completely zoned out to her surroundings lost in the elated joy of the moment. The most hilarious thing was seeing us get pointed out but it not even register because she was so lost in the emotion of getting engaged. We have never seen that before but love it as it allows for even more candid photos. In reality it is not about the photography but the capturing of those moments you can never fake or try to redo. Just look at the looks on their face as they walk toward the camera afterward – that is the real how it feels to just get engaged.
