Hi, I am Travis. I am a professional marriage proposal photographer and planner. I have been a professional photographer since I was 15 years old. I am an avid outdoor adventurer. I love to hike, ski, camp, run, swim, bike and hit the gym! I am pretty much a typical Colorado resident. I live in the mountains around 9000′ near Breckenridge, CO. Any given day I would rather be hiking up a mountain rather than sitting at a desk. When you hire Dramatic Focal Point, I am the person who will be there to work for you. I am not a massive global photographic company. Just a small, one man show, Colorado based business.
In 2013 I left a career as a Federal Law Enforcement Agent and moved to beautiful Colorado to begin a new phase in living my dream as a professional photographer. This niche as a marriage proposal photographer started with just one proposal. I had not shot a proposal before. I just accepted the job and figured out the rest as I went. As of today (February 2020) I have photographed over 190 marriage proposals here in Colorado. With this many marriage proposals under my belt I have learned a TREMENDOUS amount about helping make these special life moments very memorable. This business morphed from being just a photographer into a full concierge service. I can help you decide just where you want your proposal to take place. I have tips on how to secretly get that engagement ring from wherever you are to here in Colorado with your soon-to-be fiancée traveling right next to you. I can help you plan out your post proposal dinner and even help you figure out where you should stay!
My love of photography began as a hobby in high school. For 25 years since then, I have been developing my skills while perfecting my professional style. During my time behind the lens I worked in many different surroundings and extreme conditions. My inherit ability to “anticipate a moment” has been sharpened while photographing The President of The United States, working with the captains from Discovery Channel’s The Deadliest Catch, and immortalizing musicians during Austin’s famous SXSW concerts. While working in Washington, DC, I was afforded the wonderful learning experience of working under the award winning wedding photographer Lisa Robinson, owner of Lovesome Photographery. With her help I was able to broaden my portfolio and realize that I thoroughly enjoyed photographing stylish weddings. Now I have left wedding photography behind to help YOU make your perfect marriage proposal story.
Experience has taught me that important photographs should not be awkwardly staged. They should be candidly shot or comfortably posed using natural lighting and dramatic backgrounds. Relax and enjoy your special occasion knowing that your memories will be captured in brilliant Dramatic Focal Point pictures you will cherish for a lifetime.
