This surprise engagement session may have been one of the funnest events I have photographed all year!
I was very excited when originally contacted about the potential of photographing a surprise engagement session. So, when it actually happened I was pretty much on cloud nine. Can you imagine anything better, for a photographer, than getting to fly to the top of an Alaska mountain with their client? I can’t! I love the challenge of doing something completely new and outside of my comfort zone. I really feel like it pushes my creativity, technical skills, and general excitement about my work.
So you are probably wondering how we kept it a surprise? He asked his future fiancé to dress nice for dinner at the Double Musky Restaurant in Girdwood, AK. Further along in the days events, he told her that they had scored a free ride on a helicopter before dinner!! You see… there was a photographer that had booked a helicopter ride… and there were two empty seats they could have free, if they wanted!! Wow! what a deal ;o) Once we were up to the top of the mountain, the rest is history. The only thing else you need to know is, she said “yes”.
I hope you enjoy these super fun pictures, of the newly engaged couple, as much as I enjoyed taking them. Cheers.
