tips for planing

  1. Pack an umbrella if the forecast appears cloudy, but have a rain date in mind if the weather looks like it's heading south the day you planned to propose.
  2. Have a photographer waiting for you at the end of your hike. Your partner will think they're just another hiker taking in the scenes, until they start capturing photos of you. Check out Flytographer to hire an amazing professional photographer near you.
  3. If you want to capture some stunning photos, schedule your proposal around the golden hour, the time right after sunrise or right before sunset where the daylight is softer and provides better lighting for photographs.
  1. Carry a backpack. You don't want the ring to fall out of your pocket or be visible through fitted pants.
  2. Hiking proposals offer many ways to include loved ones. Have them arrive at the trail early and get to the end so they’re waiting for you as a surprise when you reach the top, or have them waiting to congratulate you when you hike back down.
  3. Test the trail ahead of time. You don't want to hike it for the first time when you go to propose, or you'll risk reaching the end only to be huffing and puffing and drenched in sweat. This way you'll know how to go, can tell your photographer the exact point to meet you, and have one less thing to be nervous about on your big day.
