Proposal | Sapphire Point | March
We have found over the years of being a proposal photographer that while not every guy demands seclusion most foundational desire it. Sapphire Point at the “point” is generally referred to as the Overlook and between all the weddings and other things it can be a little busy depending on the time of day and circumstances of the day. This has led us to try out some new areas that would still be natural to go but lack the people. We call this the alternative up the hill spot. Mid winter it was not working super well due to all the fresh snow but the snow has firmed up more. The top crust was about a foot thick of hard packed snow from the sun melt. Upon going up there we didn’t fall though at first. We dug out a 4 foot hole to hide in which was a bit of a workout but its something that worked beautifully. Upon going back down to grab my gear Brendon and Whitley had already arrived earlier than expected. This helped likely sell the story of going to this spot. Upon making our way back up the extra 30lbs of gear started to cause sinking in the snow. Maybe it was just the extra weight of a bottle of champagne and those champagne flutes. Either way we buried that slightly in the snow and jumped in our hole for the proposal.
It was a YES with a gorgeous mountain background. From there we took some other photos up on the hillside. Forgetting about how 30 pounds more made the guy with the camera fall through the snow an idea was suggested to hop up on his back which made for a playful moment plunging through the snow. We went back on down to the Overlook where we took some more photos so if you are confused on where the shoot was just know it was the same parking area but a different spot.
