Sunrise proposal at Vikingsholm
Typically I photograph at sunset, but for this proposal was photographed at sunrise at Emerald Bay.
I loved helping Kevin plan this proposal, going over everything to make it go as smoothly as possible.
When clients book me for their proposal, I don’t just show up on the day. We will have a planning call to go over everything in detail, but you’re also able to give me a call or text at any point when you need some support!
From the words of Kevin telling his side of the story:
“I had also decided about 1 week before we left that I wanted it to just be us and that I wanted the moment captured. I started looking for a photographer. Alyssa was immediately on board, she was all about it and was totally in on the surprise.
She helped me out tremendously with choosing the right spot at the Emerald Bay Scenic overlook and was all about blending in with other sunrise photographers to make it look as if it was just another morning at Lake Tahoe.
Meanwhile, Danielle thought we were still going for a hike. The morning of, Danielle and I both woke up around 1:00 am! Neither of us could sleep, she couldn’t get comfortable and my mind was racing, around 2:00 am, we turned the tv on in our hotel and watched the kids baking championships on the food channel until about 5:30 when we left for our hike.
On the car drive out, I told her my hip was hurting really bad and that I would like to just go to the scenic overlook instead of the hike… I couldn’t tell if she was frustrated or was so tired that she didn’t care. When we parked, it had just started getting light outside, it was a perfect morning, the air was clear and crisp, the lake looked amazing and the mountains were perfectly outlined by the rising sun in the distance.
Alyssa was staged behind us and on top of a large rock, we sat there for what seemed like an eternity but in reality was probably less than 10 minutes. I got too excited and before the sun crested the mountain top, I stood up, got down on 1 knee and proposed. The pictures capture the reaction perfectly!
Total surprise and amazing reaction! It was literally perfect.”
