Jake has been planning the perfect proposal for a few months. With Ruby, the horse, looking on during their sleigh ride in Breckenridge, he got down on one knee and asked Avery to marry him. Of course, she said yes.

We had worked out a plan for me to tag along as an advertising photographer working for the sleigh ride company. It was a complete surprise to Avery and everything went off without a hitch. Jake had some friends set up a cute spot in the snow along the route beforehand and had champagne, flowers and chocolates waiting back in the sleigh.

It’s always a treat to be able to both witness and capture such a special moment. Congratulations you two!!
