Tonight’s Looking Glass Rock Proposal is a knockout! Alex called me last Wednesday searching for a proposal photographer. He had the perfect girl (Jackie ;), a gorgeous ring, and a killer location. All he needed to complete the picture was someone to shoot the epic moment. Looking Glass Rock is nestled deep in the Pisgah National Forest in Brevard, NC. It is beyond gorgeous and does the mountains of Western North Carolina proud! Have you ever hiked up the side of a massive rock face?! Well I can now proudly say I have! Looking Glass Rock is a hike that is NOT for the faint of heart. All in all it takes about 3 hours round trip to make it from top to bottom, but I promise that is completely worth it. When you get to the summit, you feel on top of the world!
Alex and I carefully came up with a perfect plan so that I would be up there slightly ahead of them to capture the proposal. My hubby/hiking partner/MVP hiked up Looking Glass with me. Stephen carried my bag 90% of the hiking trip! He also modelled for me at the top of Looking Glass Rock so I could have my camera out in preparation for Alex/Jackie and not arouse her suspicions as much.
Alex and Jackie got to the top of Looking Glass Rock about 15 minutes after Stephen and I got to the top. Alex wisely brought his drone and used it to distract Jackie so that I could get in position. Shortly after setting the drone up, he got down on one knee and eloquently asked Jackie to be his wife! She said YES! After that it’s like everything moved in slow mo! They were both so ecstatically happy and it was contagious. Their gorgeous Looking Glass Rock Proposal ended with a beautiful sunset that enveloped them completely.
