Pikes Peak Proposal

Recently, I was traveling around Colorado on vacation. As any good tourist should, I made the trek (in a car, of course!) up to the summit of Pikes Peak to see some scenic views and stand on top of the world! Little did I know what was about to happen.

Upon reaching the top of the mountain, I climbed out of the car to walk around in the 50 degree weather and snap some photos of the miles of land surrounding me.

I had been taking pictures for about 30 minutes and was just about to head back to the car when I heard a scream and saw a commotion just a few feet away from me. “Oh my gosh!” I thought. “Someone just fell off of the mountain!” I quickly turned around to assess the situation when I realized that nobody, in fact, had fallen off of the mountain. Instead, I was looking at a sweet couple happily hugging. I noticed that there was something on her hand sparkling in the sun.

Realizing that I had just MISSED a proposal, I jogged over to the newly engaged couple.

“Oh my god! Oh my god!” she kept saying, breathless for more reasons than just the thin, mountain air.

After I introduced myself and explained that I as a photographer, the couple agreed to let me take their picture with the amazing Colorado backdrop behind them. Later, after a few laughs and a fun mini-photo shoot, we exchanged email addresses and parted ways. Flipping through the pictures on my camera, I couldn’t help but smile, knowing that I just captured a once in a lifetime moment for an unsuspecting couple.

To my newly engaged friends, thank you for letting me share in a day that you’ll never forget. On behalf of myself and the Exceptional Events Texas team, congratulations! We wish you the best.
