December surprise proposal in Paradise Valley

Travis called me last week and inquired about my surprise proposal photography. The funny thing is, I was sitting in my car in Bozeman during a snow storm when I took his call. I was counting down the minutes before I hiked up the hill to lie in wait for my last secret assignment. Fast forward one week to the day and here we go again.

This event was every bit as much of a surprise. Madison’s reaction was priceless… it was ‘shock and awe’ all over again. The location was spectacular with the mountainous backdrop behind the Sage Lodge . Then we hit the road and roamed around the Paradise Valley making images of the moments they will never forget. The evening was complete with a gorgeous sunset on a perch below the peaks at Chico Hot Springs resort!

Cheers to love! Cheers to Travis and Madison!!!

Here’s the way it went down!
