Ethan reached out to me on Instagram looking for someone to capture him proposing to his girlfriend, Madeline. They were traveling in from Tennessee for a mini vacation surrounding a show they were going to see, so time was of the essence! We worked out a day and location and decided to do an engagement session right after he proposed. So after she said yes while riding horseback through the mountains, they met me at Bear Lake Trailhead to celebrate. We beat some rain and managed to find the cutest spot right on the lake, away from a little foot traffic. This view was incredible and I highly recommend going! You DO need a RMNP photography permit ($50) and a timed entry pass for when we went (August) but it is so worth it. Enjoy a little preview of what we captured!
