When Zach and I first met Alyson and Tyler in the spring, it was an immediate connection. Giant smiles never left their faces as they melted into each loving pose with ease. We had an absolute blast photographing them then, so we were beyond excited when Tyler reached out about a surprise proposal.
His only criteria for the day was that it had to be absolutely magical for Alyson. So for weeks we organized their photoshoot. Alyson agreed to help me with a modeling gig, while Tyler coordinated with close family and friends to help keep his plan a secret. When thinking about a magical location for their shoot, we agreed upon the gorgeous Blackwater Falls State Park in Davis, WV. What makes a beautiful place even MORE magical you ask? Easy – fresh snow. We had absolutely no idea if the park would be accessible after their recent snowfall, but we took the plunge and drove two hours away in hopes for the best. We were not disappointed.
When we met up with the happy couple for their shoot, sweet Alyson had NO IDEA what was about to happen while Tyler, Zach, and I excitedly smiled to one another – ready for the day to unfold.
After spending the afternoon in the snow and seeing the stunning waterfall – Tyler got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life on a snow-covered road. We all ugly cried. It was easily one of Zach and I’s favorite moments of the year.
Congratulations again to the sweet couple!
