This Surprise Proposal at Zion National Park was so special! I traveled to Zion National Park with Amber Garrett and Alyssa and Paul booked a Zion session with us. Weeks before the session, Alyssa let us know that they were expecting and she wanted to incorporate the ultrasound into the session. Then, a couple of weeks after that, Paul reached out to let us know he wanted to PROPOSE during the session. It was so exciting to plan this really special session for Alyssa and Paul in Zion!
On the day of the session, we started at a lower point in Zion with amazing views. Next, we drove to a second location for the big proposal moment. We prompted Alyssa and Paul to face opposite directions. On the count of 3, they were told to “run to each other like you haven’t seen each other in months” (this is always a fun prompt!). When Alyssa turned around, Paul was on one knee. She was SUPER SUPRISED and it was such a sweet moment! Evidently, she said YES!
After Paul proposed, we took some portraits to celebrate their “just engaged moment”. Then we headed to our final location to set up the cutest picnic for the newly engaged couple. They popped sparkling cider and we took more portraits! Alyssa and Paul were such an incredible and loving couple to work with in Zion National Park! I’m so excited for these two as they prepare to welcome a baby into the world and continue building their life together!
