From the Photographer:
“She thought they were just going for a sunrise hike, but he had verrrrry different plans….
Joseph reached out to me a few weeks ago and asked if I’d be willing to hike 10 miles to capture him proposing to his girlfriend at sunrise. Of course I was stoked and said yes right away. I had been meaning to do this hike for a while, and now I finally had the motivation.
My husband and I started the hike at 3:30 AM to be there a few hours before them. It was super chilly and I definitely did not bring a thick enough coat, but I’d do it all again in a heartbeat. I pretended that I was just a nature photographer until Joseph got down on his knee behind her. It took a lot in me to not cry so that I could see what I was doing, but I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with joy for them. As you can tell from the pictures, she happily said “YES!”.
Joseph pulled off this secret proposal perfectly and I was so honored to be a part of it. I truly could not love my job any more than I already do.”
