Clayton proposes to Trisha | Gatlinburg Bypass Overlook | Smoky Mountains, Photographer

Clayton contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted me to somehow secretly photograph him as he proposed to his girlfriend of 8 years. He wanted a mountain backdrop and saw from a previous blog post I did that someone stopped there to take some photos here and thought she would not suspect anything to just pull over to a mountain overlook.

I noticed I could prop up my phone and record the proposal and I am so happy that I was able to do this for them. She said it was such a blur that either one of them either remember her even saying “yes” haha! but she did!

The proposal was super sweet. Trisha was laughing and crying at the same time. He definitely  surprised her with that, then to know that he had all this planned out with me being there to capture it was another surprise. We then informed her that we were going to go out to take some fun photos. She was so overwhelmed with everything she happily agreedsurprise-proposal-at-Gatlinburg-Overlook-Smoky-Mountains-Secret-Photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Knoxville-Seymour-engagement-Photo-session-8 surprise-proposal-at-Gatlinburg-Overlook-Smoky-Mountains-Secret-Photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Knoxville-Seymour-engagement-Photo-session-9 surprise-proposal-at-Gatlinburg-Overlook-Smoky-Mountains-Secret-Photographer-Pigeon-Forge-Knoxville-Seymour-engagement-Photo-session-10

We then headed out to a great private area called Emerts Cove and got some great photos of the two newly engaged couple. I had no trouble getting smiles out of them.
