Grand Teton National Park Proposal

This past summer seemed like proposal - palooza here in the Jackson Hole area! One of the sweetest that comes to mind is Jonathan’s surprise proposal to Esmeralda in Grand Teton National Park! Like a lot of people planning the perfect proposal for that special someone, Jonathan knew he wanted a photographer their to capture the big moment! After connecting and going over a lot of the options in the area, Jonathan picked one of our favorite spots in the park! It was shaping up to be a beautiful evening and as luck would have it, a distant thunderstorm was rolling in. It can be the norm during the summer and sometimes they blow through as quick, but this one seem to be looming in the distance for a while.

After going back and forth about everything with Jonathan about timing, and final location, we adjusted our plan a little and we’re so glad because a few minutes after popping the question, the lighting and thunder made it’s presence known! We were able to work our way into the park and away from the weather. Esmeralda’s family was also a part of the surprise and they joined in the celebration that evening. These two were the absolute sweetest so we’re so glad everything for them! Both of their reactions were pure joy and it made for a perfect evening in the mountains! Big congrats to Jonathan and Esmeralda on their engagement and we hope you all enjoy following along!
