Michael and Rachel | Proposal on Lost Gulch Overlook

Savannah Chandler Photography | Boulder Engagement Photographer


Proposals are always full of adrenaline – the concept of blending in behind a rock and jumping out to catch “bending the knee” is one that makes my heart race.

I talked with Michael quite a few times in preparation for their Lost Gulch Overlook proposal and following engagement session.  I always be sure to get photos of the couple, as well as their vehicle.  I knew that they’d be pulling up in Michael’s white Honda at 2:30 pm.  My second photographer and myself traded taking photographs of each other up on the rocks, as well as the lovely view of the Never Summer range to the South West of Boulder and looking out into Rocky Mountain National Park.

We saw a white Honda pull up right on time, and knew it was go time.  As Michael and Rachel headed out towards the overlook, we kept a close eye on their location and followed them out the the Western most point on the rocks.  At roughly 2:35pm, Michael dropped down to one knee and proposed to Rachel.  These are the moments when you can feel your heart pounding out of your chest – my fingers were shaking for quite some time from the rush.

Once Michael pointed us out, we took some time to photograph at Lost Gulch overlook and spray some champagne in celebration.  One of the great things about late April on Flagstaff mountain is that it’s not too terribly hot yet.  We were able to outrun the coming storm system, and then head up the road to the Flatiron Vista Trailhead.  We originally thought of heading to Chautauqua park, however, on 4/20 in Boulder – the crowds are always massive.  Able to escape the city and crowds, we walked around the Vista Trailhead.  There were tons of beautiful yellow flowers on the ground.  Spring was certainly in bloom.

I wish you both the best of luck, and nothing but happiness.  Thank you for adventuring with me up near Boulder!!

Savannah was so great and managed to make us (two awkward people) feel super comfortable and thrilled about wedding photos. :) She saved our day with her flexibility and the pictures were better than we could've ever hoped for! Highly recommend!
