Proposal | Sapphire Point Overlook | February
Colorado Mountain Proposal with Photographers
It was the kind of day in Colorado that trucks blow over. For Tom and Pam you can get a little glimpse of the wind in the proposal. While fashion trends can change we doubt the up and all over is the ideal hair style for most women. For those trying to hit the ski slopes in Breckenridge it was a somewhat disappointing day as it was too windy to run most of the lifts. What is was good for was getting engaged and married. . . . We will let you guess which they were in this photo shoot. By the looks of a lack of white dress it can be implied that this was not a wedding shoot. Now if they just got engaged and then were like . . heck, this is a place where people get married, we can self officiate in Colorado, lets do this . . . well that would be a first. Our take is most women cannot even grasp what all is happening in an hour. The proposal is this overwhelmingly happy emotional time when your head is spinning in the best of ways. There was a wedding group out there that day. They were nice enough to take some pre wedding photos in a different area so they could stick with the original proposal plan. We think this might have gotten Tom a little thrown off as if you have seen a number of the blogs we have done at this location you will notice the positions are reversed. We still got it because on this day it was a Joe + Robin for them. We had planned to do some skiing and snowboarding that morning. Ironically, when the second photographer has been a surprise arrival (freebe) the second photographer is what kept us from only getting a really good shot of her butt. Now for those who really love the angle of this proposal please do not copy it unless you have two photographers. If you do copy it we will only be able to get your face which defeats the purpose of a hidden photographer to get her priceless reaction. Now as for making this the normal spot there are a couple things to note. The main thing is we cannot be hidden and you would walk within feet of us. The secondary thing is that you cannot get the zoomed in perspective and mountains in the background. The angle you see was shot at 60mm vs our normal 200 to 300mm. There are a lot of other reasons but in general we love the spot but only for what you would get with two of us shooting the proposal.
