Proposal at Moraine Lake – Courtney & Mike

This was the most impromptu proposal at Moraine Lake I have ever photographed! Originally Courtney had reached out to me on her own to plan a beautiful photo session at the super-popular Moraine Lake. So we arranged all the details and got up at the crack of dawn to make sure we got a parking spot. The session was perfect as we explored the shoreline, and climbed the stairs to the viewpoint. What Courtney and I didn’t know is an amazing surprise was about to unfold!

Admittedly I was not prepared at all. I was changing cameras and a little distracted as I was fumbling with my gear (little heads up would have been nice! lol) but I looked up and saw Mike on one knee getting ready to ask the love of his life the big question. I held my breath and photographed my little heart out! Of course, Courtney said YES!

It’s taken me over a year to get around to blogging about this amazing proposal, and Courtney and Mike have now tied the knot in a beautiful wedding in Wyoming! Congratulations you two! I enjoy following all your adventures on Instagram.
