    Christina + Danny’s Breckenridge Proposal

    Story + Photography by Emily Bolton Shortly after Christina reached out to me about setting up a couple’s session during their trip to Breckenridge, her boyfriend, Danny, sent me an email to let me know he was planning on proposing to Christina and would love to capture the moment during their session.

I would say their trip to Colorado was not only a success but a moment they will remember for a lifetime.

I was very pleasantly surprised to see my…
