When Avery reached out to me about Ouray proposal photos for when she popped the question to Maira, she already had a few ideas in mind. They had stumbled upon one of my favorite spots in the area on a hike in the past, and she knew that was where she wanted to propose. I posted up that morning with our plan in place, and captured everything as it unfolded! It was super windy but they were just absolute troopers. The two took some selfies before Avery reached into the pack to pull out a framed photo she found a while back while she and Maira were shopping. I think that was the moment Maira understood something big was coming! Avery then dropped to one knee and pulled out the ring, a black diamond that she put on Maira’s finger as she laughed in disbelief. I think we were all relieved when the secret was out and we could laugh and hug it out! We did a few quick photos after the popping of the question, and they both shared a champagne toast to celebrate as I headed out to let them enjoy the start to this new season of life and the amazing views Ouray has to offer.
