Ethan Proposes to Ally | Clingman’s Dome | Chimney Tops Picnic Area | Gatlinburg, TN Photographer

Ethan and Ally planned a smoky mountain vacation from Indiana. They already went on a few hikes while they were in town, but wanted Clingman’s Dome to be special. Ethan contacted me months ago and had this idea of proposing while at Clingman’s dome. I have never been there so I thought it would be fun and different. We had a beautiful morning and great weather for our day.

Our timing was great, they were sitting in their car when I pulled up and I just got out and followed them up the hill to the dome. It was an intense walk! When we got to the top, there were only a few people up there looking at the mountains so they looked at the signs and scenery then took a seat and talked. I kept my eye on them and then he stood up and put his arm around her and was telling her how thankful he was to have her then asked her to marry him. She had the cutest look on her face!! After she realized who I was, she understood why I was taking their photo. It was a great proposal!

After we left Clingman’s Dome we stopped at the Newfound Gap Overlook and took some photos there with the beautiful mountains then drove down the road to Chimney Tops Picnic Area for some beautiful water photos.
