Colorado Proposal Photographer | Lost Gulch Overlook | T.C. and Ashley

T.C. and Ashley | Lost Gulch Proposal
Savannah Chandler | Colorado Proposal Photographer


I met T.C. a few years back at Brad and Jessica’s Asheville wedding that I photographed (you can see that here).  T.C. was a groomsmen, as well as a fellow photographer.  When he contacted me about photographing his Colorado proposal, I was super stoked for him and his soon to be fiancee.

Originally, we were supposed to photograph at the Lights Fest just west of DIA – however, we were rained out.  Twice.  My heart went out to T.C. – holding onto a secret (and a ring) for that long couldn’t be easy.  After the second postponement, we decided to head to Lost Gulch Overlook near Boulder on a lovely afternoon to capture their Colorado proposal.

After we set the date and time, I arrived a few minutes early to be sure that I was ahead of the couple.  I sat on the bench that leads up to the rocky overlook, pretending to take selfies.  I did end up getting a fun selfie with T.C. and Ashley arriving in the background 😉  My secondary photographer (the awesome Shelli) and I hid behind the rocks until I got the eye contact from T.C. that he was about to drop to one knee.

Ashley was genuinely surprised!  Her reaction was priceless, and pure joy.  T.C. later told me that he exclaimed frustration at his shoe continually coming untied to draw Ashely’s attention away from the fact he was dropping down on his knee.

Once the initial moment of impact and surprise was over, T.C. revealed our positions and we took a few moments to take some amazing photographs up on Lost Gulch overlook.

I am so honored to have been a part of this special day for the two of you, and I can not wait to celebrate with you next June for your Wild Basin Lodge wedding.  Thank you again so much for trusting me with your stunning Colorado proposal!
