George and Mallory Marriage Proposal on the Trail

George and Mallory live in the Denver area.  George had already started his marriage proposal plan but needed a little extra help to make it happen.  He knew that he wanted to propose while hiking with their dog Sampson.  He also wanted to have the yellow Aspen leaves as his backdrop for this big event.  George booked a nice little cabin in Breckenridge, CO for his upcoming surprise. He found me via a buddy who posted a message on Facebook looking for a photographer.  George and I discussed his ideas and I headed out to find the perfect spot.  The leaves were already in peak and this might be the last weekend before they all fell.  I sent George a couple of maps and GPS coordinates.  I also sent him some very simple instructions on how to position himself so I had the best vantage to capture his soon to be fiancée.  I left a yellow Nalgene bottle at the precise spot I wanted him and this is what it looked like from my hidden spot…

After Mallory SAID YES, we had an impromptu photo session.  Mallory was thrilled with the entire event.  She even mentioned that she would love to use these photos for their SAVE THE DATE announcements.
