ashley + jon | lake champlain surprise proposal

jon, my older sister ashley’s boyfriend, called me a day or two before we left for our family camping trip to lake champlain. he told me he planned on proposing to her and asked luke and i if we could help him execute and capture the special moment.

we had already planned to take a family photo on this trip, so i took jon location scouting and found a beautiful overlook point of the lake pretty close to our cabin in the woods.

the next day, i set up a tripod, snapped a few photos of our entire family, and then began taking pictures of each couple in the family while luke set up our drone. a few minutes later, out of the corner of my eye, i saw jon pointing at a mountain far away in the distance. ashley took the bait, walking closer to the railing to get a better look, and when she turned around, jon was down on one knee.

i am so grateful that luke and i were able to preserve these memories for them to look back on for the rest of their lives together!
