June 27 - Stowe, Vermont - What a treat to be able to capture this marriage proposal on the top of Mount Mansfield! A gondola ride from Stowe Resort up to Vermont’s highest peak, gorgeous views, a beautiful couple, and a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Congratulations C&E!

Now. Obviously a proposal session is all about the wonderful couple and their upcoming life together, but this is my blog, so let’s pull back the curtain and discuss the rollercoaster that is being the Proposal Photographer. Weeks of anticipation to consider how to best capture the moment without becoming a part of the story (or worse, wrecking the surprise!). Hours beforehand (I may have arrived too early, as usual), scouting and locking down the perfect spot, setting up and testing the gear, and kindly navigating people taking selfies away from the frame. And finally, the whirlwind that is THE moment! Happily, all went according to plan, and the couple will forever have the photos documenting this special day.
